Thermal water comes from deeply hidden springs, up to 6,000 meters underground. As it flows through its layers, thermal waters accumulate a lot of trace elements. In addition, under the influence of heat (the sources heat up, for example, from hot magma flowing in the depths of the earth), reactions take place in the water, resulting in the formation of new, valuable substances.
