I am super excited to be partnering with Gerolsteiner & FitApproach for the #SparklingDetox Challenge in mid September. I received a free case of water for the challenge, however as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. All information on the actual water is from Gerolsteiner.
First let’s talk about who Gerolsteiner is.
Bottled in Gerolstein, Germany directly from the Volcanic Eifel since 1888, Gerolsteiner is know in international markets as the “World’s No. 1 Sparkling Natural Mineral Water”. It is sold in 40 countries.
What makes Gerolsteiner mineral water so special?
From Gerolsteiner: With many waters there are two criteria that are mutually exclusive. Either the water tastes neutral but contains only a small amount of minerals, or the water is full of minerals but tastes salty or bitter due to the sodium chloride or sulfate content. Gerolsteiner mineral water combines the best of both. It has its origin in the Volcanic Eifel – an area that offers soil conditions unique throughout the world: Gerolsteiner’s well-balanced water is the result of the carbonic acid of volcanic origin and the region’s dolomite rock, which is exceptionally highly mineralized. Thus Gerolsteiner neither tastes bitter nor salty – but pleasantly neutral and refreshing naturally. Not many waters contain essential calcium and at the same time essential magnesium as well.
The unique source, the Volcanic Eifel, with its naturally high mineral content means Gerolsteiner has almost 2,500 mg of mineral content per liter which is quite a bit higher than other brands.
Interestingly, the mineral water is bottled with carbon dioxide from natural springs. This means there is no need to artificially carbonate the water.
Now that we’ve introduced Gerolsteiner Sparking Natural Mineral Water, I know you are interested in what the #SparklingDetox is.
It’s super simple, which is great for someone like me. I love pre-packaged juice cleanses & trying new things that are easy. Between all the travel, work and running, I just don’t have time to do anything complicated.
So basically all you need to do is, commit to drinking Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water for 5 days from September 12 – 16. You can eat your normal meals, exercise like normal, but you’ll give up soda, juice, alcohol and coffee (insert crying emoji here, lol) &/or tea.
When I first saw the info on what was required for the #SparklingDetox I almost started crying because I’ll be in Tahoe crewing Sean at Tahoe 200 and I was like oh, no! I’m not going to be able to eat for 3 days I’m there? But then I read a little further and found out I can eat whatever I want, I just can’t drink anything else, super easy :).
Why do I want to do the #SparklingDetox? It’s so easy, just drink Gerolsteiner water then eat & exercise like normal? How can you go wrong?
As an added bonus, Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water not only tastes good, it also contains 33% of our daily requirement of Calcium and 25% of our daily requirement of Magnesium (per liter), which means for all of us that don’t really drink a lot of milk or don’t want to take a supplement, we can get a good amount of calcium just from drinking Gerolsteiner.
I have always been a fan of mineral water and have always known that not all waters are created equal. It’s fascinating to me that depending on what region, what type of bedrock the spring comes from, can really have an effect on the taste. And let me just say, I am super picky about my water and always have been.
Partnering with Gerolsteiner has really educated me on how different water can be. There are 3 different types of water, mineral, sparkling & purified. So what does that mean?
