Sochi mineral springs and their therapeutic value

Mineral springs of diverse content run in Sochi District. The resort is not yet widely known as the one where you can drink mineral water. Nowadays four mineral springs are used for illness prevention and treatment. Mineral water comes from Chvizhepse, Mamayskiy, Plastunskiy and Volkonkiy springs. Twenty three sites for the exploration of mineral springs have been already planned. The first springhouse (buvette) opened in 2008. 

All mineral springs’ water contains high levels of minerals (1, 2-7 grams/ liter). It has bromine and fluorine that give it a purported therapeutic value, and other dissolved substances (bromine, iron and silicone in acid form). 

Sochi mineral waters contain chemicals and microelements for strong therapeutic effect. Mineral water is obtained to pour into bottles and sell as healing table water and healing mineral water, and city resorts use it for treatment. People drink mineral water raw and technologically processed. New springhouses will be built in the nearest future. 

All drinkable mineral waters in Sochi contain fluoride making it possible to use the water for tooth decay prevention, to remove radionuclides and heavy metals salts. 

Not only the chemical composition, but also the intake regime (before, after or between the meals), the temperature of the water, the gases contain or their absence influence the therapeutic value of the mineral water. At any rate, the resort patients drink mineral water strictly following medical prescriptions. 

Plastunskiy mineral spring - sub thermal (31C) hydro carbonated sodium bromine water, fluoride high, low mineral (M - 1, 8 gram/ liter) low alkaline mineral water. It is obtained from Plastunskiy mineral spring, 550 meters deep. The spring, opened in 1971, is located in Khosta district, to the north from Plastunka village. While drinking, it regenerates the mucous membrane of stomach and intestines, removes radionuclides, pesticides and salts of heavy metals, normalizes oxidation-reduction process and metabolism, strengthens muscular body tone and natural resistance. 

Lazarevskiy mineral spring - hydro-carbonated chloride sodium alkaline mineral water, low mineral (M - 2, 0 - 5, 0 gr/l) fluoride, Bohr and iodine high, contains therapeutic bromine and silicon. The water is obtained from Volkonskiy spring, located in Lazarevskiy district in valleys Tsuskhvadzh and Chudo Krasotka, 250-550 meters deep. The spring has two exploration sites Samshytovy and Solonikovskiy. While drinking, it facilitates recovery processes, stimulates immune system, regenerates the mucous stomach and intestines membranes, removes radionuclides, pesticides and heavy metals salts, normalizes oxidation-reduction processes and metabolism, and strengthens muscular body tone and natural resistance. 

Chvizhepse spring water - low mineral carbon dioxide calcium sodium, arsenic trihydride mineral water, Bohr, lithium and iron high. It stimulates blood cells formation, regulates oxidation-reduction processes, and regenerates the mucous stomach membrane. 
Spring #7 mineral water - low mineral (M - 3, 3 - 5, 0 gr/ l) carbon dioxide hydro-carbonated calcium sodium arsenic mineral water, obtained from the spring 700 meters deep. It stimulates blood circulation, regulates oxidation-reduction processes, and regenerates the mucous stomach membrane. At pouring sites, it is called Medvezhiy Ugol, Gorny Istochnik. 

Drinking mineral waters buvettes - springhouses. 

Sochi Resorts hold large-scale construction of special springhouses - called buvettes. One can come across with numerous springs of healing mineral water. In order not to waste away the rich gifts of nature, Kuban resorts reinforce complex construction of drinking buvettes. A buvette (French buvette) is a balneo tech device, used to drink mineral water of the spring. It preserves the chemical composition of water and prevents its pollution. Three real buvettes operate in Sochi, located in Riviera Sochi Park, near Winter Theatre and at the territory of spa resorts in Adler. The buvettes pour Plastunskiy spring mineral water.
