What’s in the Water?!


Mineral Content

Besides treating aches and pains, soaking in hot highly concentrated mineral water has many other health and wellness benefits. Increasing body temperature helps naturally kill harmful germs and viruses, eliminate toxins, increase circulation and reduce blood pressure! Essential minerals have many health benefits and can be absorbed through your skin, giving your body a natural health boost.

All units are in milligrams per liter (mg/L) unless otherwise noted.

Potassium 7.7

Normalizes heart rhythms, assists in reducing high blood pressure, eliminates body toxins, promotes healthy skin.

Silica 120

Strengthens bones, boosts the immune system, promotes healthy nerves, mucous membranes, hair, and nails. Used in treating acne and migraines.  Studies have shown that it can prevent the thinning of hair and plays a vital role in assisting calcium in bone growth.

Sulfate 110

Rids the body of toxins and promotes health of bones, hair, nails, fluids in joints and vertebral discs. Sulfur is an anti-inflammatory.

Bicarbonate 187

Assists in opening peripheral blood vessels, improving circulation to the body’s extremities and potentially helping to address hypertension and mild atherosclerosis. Some researchers believe that bicarbonate baths also assist cardiovascular disease and nervous system imbalances

Chloride 62

Essential for the body to keep proper balance of body fluids. It is one the most important electrolytes in the blood and helps maintain proper blood volume, blood pressure, and pH of body’s fluids system.

Sodium 160

An extremely important electrolyte in the blood, and along with chloride, is necessary to maintain the body’s fluids system. It also plays a pivotal role in enzyme operations, nerve and muscle functions.

Calcium 8.7

Promotes healthy bone growth and overall health. It also helps maintain heart rhythm and muscle function. Maintaining proper levels of calcium reduces chances colon and breast cancer.

Fluoride 16

Calcium fluoride is a constituent of the elastic fibers of the skin and the surface of bones and teeth. Promotes hardness and stability.

Magnesium .6

Maintains normal heart rhythms, converts blood sugar to energy, and maintains muscle tissue and hormone levels.

Phosphate .04

Critical for energy storage and metabolism.  It assists in kidney, muscle and nerve function, and it helps maintain proper calcium balance.

PH:  Acidity and Alkalinity

Roystone Hot Springs has a PH level of 7.5 classifying it as basic/alkaline water. The alkalinity is primarily the result of the potassium, calcium, magnesium, and sodium ions contained in the hot springs water.

The pH scale runs from 0 to 14, where lower numbers represent acidic mineral content and higher numbers represent alkaline mineral content. A pH of 7 is basically neutral. The more alkaline the better soak (alkaline-based minerals are typically good for the skin). Acidic-based hot springs are not ideal because the minerals can be harsh on the skin/body.
