Sponsored: I received several bottles of Aqua Carpatica Natural Sparkling Mineral Water for review. I'm a novice when it comes to Mineral Water. I tried Perrier. It was ok. I never revisited mineral water again. LOL What sparked my interest again in mineral water, was that Aqua Carpatica Sparkling Mineral Water is NITRATE FREE (totally free from nitrate (fertilizer) pollution or any other chemical, microbiological or physical impurity), has CALCIUM & MAGNESIUM (perfect for people who engage in high levels of activity), helps DIGESTION, has ZERO CALORIES & NO carbohydrates, lipids, organic carbon or sodium. I included two info-graphics from Aqua Carpatica's website regarding NITRATES. One, gives a comparison to other brands. That bottle of Perrier I consumed had the highest level of Nitrates (go figure). It also talks about the health effects on unborn children & babies under 6 months. How does it taste? Like flat alka-seltzer water. HaHaHa You have the bubbles (because it's sparkling water), but there's nothing else there. I will say, I felt more energetic after drinking this in comparison to regular water. But overall I'm just going on the fact that it is good for you. Aqua Carpatica water comes from the Carpathian Mountains (the last wild forest of Europe with no agriculture or industrial activity in the surrounding areas) Let me know your thoughts on mineral water!
