Water for the whole family

Eau de Geneve can be drunk daily by every member of the family.

  • The best drink for sports
  • Recommended for the whole family
  • A dietary drink
Water is the only drink that is indispensible for the body to work well. It is refreshing and hydrating.
Adults are recommended to drink at least 1.5 litres of water a day (around eight glasses of water). This amount of water complements the liquids found in foods.

Water: great for sports

Still water is the best drink when doing sport. During a workout, three quarters of the energy used by muscles are transformed into heat.
To deal with this increase in temperature, our body sweats and can lose one to three litres of water an hour. It is best not to wait until you are thirsty, because water aids concentration and to lessen the risk of cramps and muscle ache.

Water: essential at any age

Proportionally, a child’s water needs are three to five times greater than that of an adult. It is important that children – and elderly people - drink regularly, even if they don’t always feel thirsty.

«It is better to use low mineral water, such as Geneva drinking water to prepare babies’ bottles.»
