MINERAL WATER IS GOOD DO DRINK?

Hello! I've heard that some mineral water brands in Egypt are rich in magnesium, and that they can also cause diarrhea. Any experiences or advice?

There is bottled water for sale everywhere in Egypt - we did not see any specifically called mineral water, but perhaps you mean just bottled water?

Anyway, you have to be careful about water you buy - make sure it has a sealed cap - where you must break the seal, since some sellers will merely refill plastic bottles with local water and try to sell them.

While it is true that excess magnesium can cause diarrhea, since many people get ill from food or water in Egypt, it would be difficult to determine which water or food caused the illness.

I didn't have any problem drinking the bottled water in Eqypt. We bought them from grocery stores close by our hotel or in some cafeteria style restaurants as well. I agree, one should always check if the cap is intack to avoid any contaminations.

We had no trouble with bottled water bought in Egypt. It was all fine.
