And if the amount of sodium in bottled drinking water exceeds 20 milligrams per liter, this must be taken into account, especially in medical conditions that require a (low-sodium) diet.
Bottled water is divided into two main parts, which are bottled natural mineral water and bottled drinking water, according to a video clip published by the Food and Drug Authority in Saudi Arabia, via Twitter.
We can get bottled natural mineral water from natural sources, such as rivers, springs, and others.

This type of water usually contains natural minerals, or added intentionally.
The two types also differ in the pH, which is known as “pH”, and it is worth noting that there is no correlation between pH and health.
