The mineral springs - the invaluable treasure of Banya
More than 1/3 of the mineral springs in the entire south-east Bulgaria are located in village of Banya.
Mineral water in Banya Village is slightly mineralized, hyper-thermal, with alkaline reaction and high flow capacity. The temperature of the water vary between 37 and 57 the water is clear without smell and has a pleasant taste when consumed.
Described as fluorine, sulfide-hydrogen sulfide, sulfide-hydro-carbonate-sodium, containing radon and lithium. The Mineral Water is suitable for SPA Medical Treatment and SPA Rehabilitation, when applied externally, in diseases of:
- Bones and joints
- Nervous system
- Female and male productivity system
The internal application of the mineral water is recommended in cases of:
- Gastrointestinal diseases
- Same professional types of intoxication
- Heavy metals in the blood
- Kidney-urological and metabolic-endocrine illnesses.
Salutary effects is registered when inhalation procedures are applied to pulmonary problems. Irrigation procedures with mineral water are beneficial in cases of dental, gynecological and chromic inflammations. The water can be utilized also as a substance initial prophylaxis of individuals with osteoporosis and tooth caries, as well as for sport and common prophylaxis.
One liter of mineral water has the following content:
Fluorine – 8.5 mg
Chlorine- 9.1 mg
Sulfate – 47.68 mg
Hydrophosphate – 0.02 mg
Hydrocarbonate and carbonate – 134.2 mg
Sodium and potassium – 87.26 mg
Calcium – 1.6 mg
Magnesium – 0.49 mg
Iron – 0.04 mg
Metasilicic acid – 74.8 mg
The total amount of mineralization is: 364.71 mg in 1 (one) liter.
Effect of mineral water on indoor use- Hydrocarbonates
Hydrocarbons determine the basic physiological effect. They play an important role in maintaining the alkaline-acid balance in the body. Hydrocarbon ions, combined with sodium, help normalize gastric secretion (gastric juices).
Chlorides enhance the decreased secretion of gastric juice and increase its acidity.
Sulphate and magnesium ions
Sulfate and magnesium ions slightly irritate the lining of the stomach, increase its kinetics and cause a moderate laxative effect. This is very useful for the elderly is people who lead a sedentary lifestyle. These ions are also useful for the normal functioning of the cardiovascular system.
Calcium ions are particularly important for the various bodily functions of dental and bone substances. Mineral water complements the deficiency in the body of calcium ions.
Fluorine is essential for the strength of teeth and bones.
Metasilicic acid has a beneficial effect on the digestive system by inhibiting the decomposition processes of toxic substances and thus having a detoxifying effect.
