Any glacial water?

PHD recommends drinking mineral water to get nutrients missing in modern water supplies. I was wondering if we want Paleo water then wouldn't glacial water be good to drink? It's been frozen since those times so it should be the very same water. Does anyone know of a good source for it though? I can't seem to find any. The best that I could come up with is Deep Sea water, though it's not taken directly from the glacier but rather currents in the ocean that are supposed to be composed of it. I'm concerned that by the time it's reached Hawaii there may be contamination with sea water and all the pollution found in it, if not for just a different composition than the source.

Another product like this is sold by Quinton, they call it marine plasma. In France, Jean Seignalet, one of the main contemporary advocate of Paleo (he diet is harsher though - he also puts strong emphasis on cooking as lightly as possible and eating meat raw), suggests these salted water shots as a preliminary "rinse" at the beginning of the new diet. Other suggestions include probiotics.

seconded. The reason that the diet and fitness people can make so much money is in part because people are willing to do things like this. I'm not against mineral water, really, but I'd take ideas like this with a grain of salt. If you're worried about water pollutants, there a good filters out there, and you can even dissolve in mineral salts if you want.

Most glacial ice is less than 100 years old. You'd have to drill quite deeply in to the Antarctic or Greenland Ice Caps to get ice of Paleolithic age. Remember - glaciers flow.

How Paleo is too Paleo? Can't people just be happy eating healthy using ancestral diets as a template? Hi - it's 2012.....

If you're expecting to get enough minerals out of water to fill any deficiencies, I think you're mistaken. Sounds like a great way to fill someone else's pocket for the quantities you'd have to drink.
