This water is a particularly light natural mineral water. Its flavour is typically soft for babies and kids.
In the breastfeeding and weaning phases, calcium is fundamental.
Calcium is, in fact one of the most important nutrients for the body. It is useful for the construction of different structures, such as bones, teeth and nails, but it is also indispensable for muscle contraction and its presence is fundamental for all the cells of the body. Calcium is an atom and is the constituent of hormones, proteins, structures that make up the cell itself.
To better understand the importance this element has for the life of an organism, it is appropriate to focus well on the role of calcium in the cell. On the one hand, in fact, calcium is the basis of more complex structures (for example, some proteins may contain calcium, which allows the formation of the structure of some cells such as osteocytes, the basic units of the bones). In this case, the calcium is fixed within these structures and remains there for a long time, generally until the death of the cell itself. On the other hand, however, this mineral also has a dynamic role.
Calcium, in fact, in the form contained in the body, is a positively charged ion (Ca2 +), capable of creating a difference in electrical potential. Its charge is very low and it positivity makes it possible both to bond with other negatively charged ions for the formation of structures and to exchange with other positive ions. When the ions exchange places, a difference in potential occurs, which also corresponds to a difference in cell concentration. This causes calcium in the cell to act like a messenger, allowing the start of different processes. The mechanism where this role is greatest is muscle contraction.
Although Me Baby natural mineral water is a light water, it is rich in calcium and in fact its use for mixing milk preparations favours the body's own absorption of those substances contained in the powders for artificial feeding, On the other hand, it enriches them with the absorption of the ions present in the water itself. In fact, a catalytic reaction is created in which the presence of calcium in the water added to the calcium present in the powder promotes the absorption processes of the substances contained in the milk and favours the cellular metabolic processes given by the calcium itself.
