The natural Mivela water spring is situated in the area of Veluće village, Serbia, in the Pasjačka river bed at 720 ft above sea level. Mivela sparkling natural mineral water is distinguished by its high level of magnesium.
The natural mineral water is collected from a depth of almost 300 feet without forced pumping. The spring itself is situated at the entrance to woods in natural surroundings untouched, and away from settlements.
On its journey from spring to bottle, Mivela runs only through a natural sand filter without any additional treatment, maintaining all the unique properties of Mivela. The bottling plant has been in operation since 1985.
The first hydro geologic investigations in this region date from the beginning of the 20th century, when the healing groundwater was found.
Prof. Dr Marko Leko, first president and founder of the Serbian Chemical Society established in 1897, performed the first chemical analysis of the mineral water from the Velucé spring in 1901, finding 352mg/l of MgO (magnesium oxide). The quantity of Magnesium in 1 liter will satisfy the body’s daily need for this mineral.
The magnesium exists in a form that can be absorbed and used in the body for vital functions without any unwanted side effects on digestion.
Numerous health benefits can be attributed to high levels of Magnesium. It has been shown to improve the general state of body metabolism. Aids in pregnancy, and contributes to the stabilization of heart activity.
Magnesium improves the function of the nervous system, and participates in the regulation of blood sugar levels. It also helps maintain the immune system and improves diuresis.
