Marianne S.: The people of Hunza are ancient – though they almost exclusively drink mineral poor glacier water. Do you really believe that mineral rich alkaline activated water is better?
Yes, because I stick to the facts.
Nowhere has the high average age of the Pakistani Hunza people been documented. The myth comes from the son of the Swiss Muesli inventor Bircher in an ancient book entitled: “Hunza – The people that knows no disease”.
In fact, there exists a rather early mortality rate. Infant mortality is extremely high, with a mortality rate of 30% before the age of 10, 10% of adults die before the age of 40. (Source: Ensminger, A., Concise Encyclopaedia of Foods and Nutrition, 2nd ed 1995, p. 619).
Just because the Hunza at 2500 m above sea level do not have a good mineral-rich water, but mainly meltwater, they have become known for their relatively high-quality Himalayan Crystal Salt, which they themselves consume with this water to survive. Since this consists mainly of common salt (sodium chloride) and trace elements, minerals such as calcium, potassium and magnesium are missing. Perhaps one reason for the low life expectancy.
