Today we’re going to talk about kidney stones and mineral water. Will drinking mineral water cause kidney stones?

The most common type of kidney stone is the calcium oxalate type. When you consume calcium, whether from water, food, or as a supplement—that calcium will bind with oxalates from the food that you’re consuming. When calcium binds with oxalates in your digestive system, it will not get absorbed and transfer into your blood, ending up in your kidney as a kidney stone. 

When you consume calcium, you’re actually decreasing your risk of getting a kidney stone. So, will drinking mineral water cause kidney stones? No. 

Foods high in oxalates:

• Almonds 
• Spinach 
• Kiwi
• Beets
• Chocolate 

What you can do:

• Avoid some of these foods high in oxalates if you’re a stone former
• If you eat these foods, take calcium with it 
If you take calcium, avoid taking calcium carbonate. It’s very hard for your body to break down calcium carbonate. 

Better sources of calcium:

• Calcium citrate
• Calcium magnesium 
• Calcium orotate
• Calcium lactate

The most important thing is to consume more fluids if you’re a stone former (at least 2.5 liters of fluid).
