Hunza water


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.

About Karl Heinz Asenbaum

The Munich-based journalist has been working on the topic of "alkaline activated water" since 2004. For 12 years he worked closely with the alternative physician Dr. Walter Irlacher, with whom he wrote two successful books: "Service Manual for Humans” (Service Handbuch Mensch) (2006) and "Drink Yourself Alkaline” (Trink Dich basisch) (2008,2011). Since 2014 he has been contributing his knowledge and experience to Aquacentrum and giving lectures worldwide. “Electro-activated Water", the world's most comprehensive book on the subject, was published in 2016. View all faqs by Karl Heinz Asenbaum
