Does hard water affect your health?

When water falls as rain, it's "soft" and free of minerals.

It picks up naturally occurring minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, as it passes through rock, sand and soil. This causes the water to become ‘hard.’

Calcium also forms an essential part of our diet. Most of our recommended daily amount comes from eating dairy products or bread, but drinking water also has a positive effect.

There is no health risk associated with water hardness, and there are some claims that hard water may even have health benefits.
