The discovery of zam-zam water is sold in Britain contain toxins potentially causing controversy. Zam-zam water for Muslims is a holy water because it is often referred to in the scriptures that the quality of this water has a high mineral content. What are the water content of the zam-zam?
As a country whose territory is dominated by desert, Saudi Arabia does not have much choice to get clean water. Apart from wells and springs, water needs met from desalination or purification of sea water and bottled drinking water.
Zam-zam water that comes from a holy spring in the vicinity of the Grand Mosque, including ground water rich in minerals. Dibadingkan clean water obtained from other sources in Saudi Arabia, groundwater has the highest mineral content.
A study was conducted by Dr. Nour Al Zuhair and Prof. Rita Khounganian from King Saud University to compare the mineral content of Zam-zam water. As a comparison is tap water that is in Saudi Arabia, which also often packaged in bottles.
From the results of these studies faculty.ksu.edu.sa quoted as saying on , one of the advantages of Zam-zam water is a particular mineral content of fluoride is higher. Zam-zam water is taken directly from the source has a fluoride content of 0.75 ppm while that flowed through the pipe as much as 0.68 ppm.
This concentration is more than your average high-fluoride content in tap water in Saudi Arabia which is only about 0.28 ppm. Meanwhile, according to World Health Organization, the human body is capable of receiving content of fluoride in drinking water up to levels of 1.5 ppm.
For humans, high levels of fluoride in drinking water can provide benefits in particular to maintain oral health. Lack of fluoride can lead to tooth loss or dental caries that if worse can lead to infection of the gums.
Another advantage of zam-zam water is a calcium ion content is higher, namely 96 ppm, both taken from the source or channeled through a pipe. While the levels of calcium ions in tap water in Saudi Arabia an average of only 75.2 ppm.
