Mineral Water Igaljka

Mineral waters represent a special type of underground water that erupts on the Earth’s surface in the form of a spring, and contains dissolved mineral substances or gases and has a healing effect. Many also call these waters healing or thermo-mineral waters, depending on the total mineralization, content of gases, trace elements, ionic composition, concentration of radioactivity, temperature and pH reaction.

The “Dr. Simo Milošević” Institute in Igalo uses mineral water that springs near the mouth of the river Sutorina into the sea, along the sea coast itself, where there are several sources of mineral water, four of which are large. This mineral water belongs to the group of sodium chloride waters. Its composition is dominated by minerals and bioactive substances – sodium chloride, hydrocarbons, sulfates, calcium, magnesium and other ingredients.

The medicinal properties of this water were tested on large groups of patients with various diseases, who were undergoing physical treatment and rehabilitation at the “Dr. Simo Milošević” Institute in Igalo, and it was also confirmed by the chemical institutes of the faculties in Belgrade and Zagreb.

This healing water improves circulation (vasodilator), reduces muscle tension (spasmolytic), reduces pain (analgesic) and generally relaxes.
