Ramlosa mineral water became famous June 17th 1797, when King Karl XII presided over the inauguration of the Ramlosa Halsobrunn health spa, along with the district medical officer Johan Jacob Dobelius. Dobelius had discovered that the water from Ramlosa worked wonders on those sick with scruvy, vertigo, gout, and essential limb termors. Ramlosa was also considered a first-class treatment for upset stomachs, shortness of breath, and even bad-smelling breath. Consumption began at 4 o'clock in the morning. The poor were served first. When they finished, next came farmers and manual workers. Around midday, the rich people arrived at the spring with their crystal stemware. In the modern era, the Ramlosa source has been refined from a natural sandstone outflow to state-of-the-art subterranean technology. It is a salty water with 222 milligrams per liter of Sodium, and an unusual elevated Flouride reported at 2.8 milligrams per liter. Ramlosa is noteworthy among high TDS waters in that its calcium, magnesium, potassium, and bicarbonate contents are negligible. Chloride and sulphate levels are middle-of-the-road. Maybe Ramlosa is part of the reason there are so many healthy looking Swedes walking around.
