In our previous blogs, we have talked about the source of Komin Natural Mineral Water: the secret aquifers of the Sahyadri Mountains. Now, let’s take you deeper to explore this mystical natural mineral water source.
An aquifer is defined as an underground layer of water-bearing permeable rock, rock fractures or unconsolidated materials such as gravel, sand, or silt, or in the case of Komin, pristine volcanic rock. This means that it is a pocket of water, hidden beneath the surface of the Earth, following years of organic filtration and enrichment through layers of natural substances.

Water plays a huge part in our lives. Some water tastes like the town where we grew up, some reminds us of the way water tasted when we visited grandma in the village family home. The taste of water can instantly transport us miles and years away! So, it’s no wonder that when it comes to water, we all have our unique preferences. Some people prefer their water smooth, some fruity, and some even salty and metallic, but that is a rather simplistic understanding of water taste profiles. Now, however, there are real world water experts out there. Yes, we’re talking about water sommeliers.

Water is the one thing that differentiates Earth from all the other lifeless planets in our solar system – it’s the source of all life on Earth. But water isn’t just a thing. It is a living, breathing entity with stories and histories and origins. Let’s explore some of these origins and talk about the sources of water, that breathe life into land.
Back in school, we’ve learnt that about 60% of the human body is water. A simple Google search will tell you that ‘According to H.H. Mitchell, Journal of Biological Chemistry 158, the brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water. The skin contains 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79%, and even the bones are watery: 31%.’
Water is the source of all life. The question however is, is all water equally nourishing for us humans? The short answer is: no.
There are different kinds of water. There is natural mineral water, which is water in its natural form, with all its salts and minerals intact; there is purified water where some sediments, minerals and salts are removed; and then there is distilled water, which is just water, stripped bare of all its minerals and salts.
