There’s no doubt about it, drinking distilled water is not good for you. It is good for your car battery or iron but not for your health! Here are the reasons why you should avoid it.
I know many people associate drinking distilled water with having pure water but nothing is further from the truth. This type has basically had all the essential trace elements removed like calcium, magnesium and potassium.
Even the World Health Organization states that we should all be drinking water with the trace minerals included for our continued health.
I have heard the makers of reverse osmosis systems which leave you with distilled water arguing that you get these minerals from other sources and that is true. The problem is your body absorbs them best from water and considering the amount you drink each day, you get a large amount from water.
Naturally occurring water in springs always has trace minerals in and this is how it is meant to be, as nature intended.
Drinking distilled water over a long period of time can lead to potentially serious health problems.
The more mineral loss you experience, the greater the risk for osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, hypothyroidism, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure and a long list of degenerative diseases generally associated with premature aging.
Even those people who used mineral supplements were found to have fewer traces of them in their systems than those drinking normal water.
Make sure you avoid any filtration systems like reverse osmosis as these are the worst offenders for removing the minerals and they still let in synthetic chemicals that are bad for your health.
The best way to ensure you get pure and healthy water with the trace minerals intact is to use a multi-step active carbon block filter. This can remove 99% of the toxins in your supplies today like chlorine, lead and pesticides yet leave in the minerals.
For long term health and enhanced mental well-being, avoid drinking distilled water and make sure you get those vital trace minerals.
