Distilled water

A while ago my friend introduced me to distilled water. I was very skeptical at the beginning and did not pay too much attention to it, I thought that that kind of water is dead, and doesn’t do anything good to the body. I actually refused to listen to her or do any research when it comes to this subject.

I had my own Brita filter, which was cheap comparing to other types and brands that there out there. Yes, I was not totally happy with it, but I couldn’t afford anything else at the time.

I was looking around telling myself that I will find a perfect filter for my water. But every time I was looking I got surprised at how much that would cost. Not to mention filters that I would need to buy every time. So it was a time to think.

On the internet, there is so much information on this subject. Depending on where you live, which continent, which country, the quality of the water much depends on where you are, but generally, water is not as good as it should be.

I do notice that when I go to the mountains in Serbia and drink from the spring source. It tastes different, it has a different effect on me.

Tap water I don’t drink since 2008. It had a strange metal taste in my mouth, and besides that, it just didn’t feel right anymore.

Then I actually decided to buy my first Brita filter. Brita softens the taste, but otherwise, I don’t really know if it does much.

This is what I found about water:

The water is contaminated with a lot of chemicals to make it ‘safe’ to drink.  It also contains inorganic minerals, residues of pesticides, fertilizers and medicines, bacteria, organisms, metals, depending on where you live fluoride as well.

When water travels through very old pipes, it picks this on its way.

  • Chlorine
  • Fluorine compounds
  • Trihalomethanes (THMs)
  • Hormones
  • Nitrates
  • Pesticides
  • Salts of:
    • arsenic
    • radium
    • aluminium
    • copper
    • lead
    • mercury
    • cadmium
    • barium

In other words, our water is not clean.

So I decided to look more closely at what distilled water has to offer.

And I made my decision, so I bought this specific brand :

4l Dental Water Distiller Pure Water Purifier Filter Stainless Steel With Bottle × 1
Distilled water 1

It was one of the cheapest, with good reviews.

It’s been 3 weeks since me and my family are using it.

This is what we notice:

  • We go frequently to the toilet
  • Our skin got better
  • It has wonderful taste
  • My son said, he feels better
  • We have more energy

This is some research :

Distilled water appears to be healthier water to drink. According to a study published by the International Water Association, “ordinary tap water presents a variety of inorganic minerals which the human body has difficulty absorbing (Misner, 2004). Their presence is suspect in a wide array of degenerative diseases, such as hardening of the arteries, arthritis, kidney stones, gall stones, glaucoma, cataracts, hearing loss, emphysema, diabetes, and obesity. What minerals are available, especially in “hard” tap water, are poorly absorbed, or rejected by cellular tissue sites, and, if not evacuated, their presence may cause arterial obstruction, and internal damage (Dennison, 1993; Muehling, 1994; Banik, 1989).

This is what I found when it comes to the benefits of drinking this type of water:

  • It helps you to make saliva
  • It lybricates the joints
  • It supresses the apetite
  • It incresse the metabolism and energy
  • It helps with concetration
  • Regulate the hart beet
  • Detoxify
  • It helps with constipation
  • With digestion
  • To get a better skin complexion
  • Boosts imune system

Water takes a very important role in our life. The fact is that we don’t drink enough., and if we do, our bodies don’t get what they need from the water.

So, what about minerals?

They are no minerals in the distilled water. So where to get minerals from?

First, even hard, mineral-rich water contributes insignificant amounts of minerals to the diet. For example, assuming a person needs 1,000 mg of calcium per day, even drinking four liters of water each day (quite a lot) with a mineral concentration of 400 parts per million (fairly hard as water goes), you’ll still only get 1.6 mg of minerals. That’s 1.6 mg out of the 1,000 mg needed each day. Like I said, an insignificant source. House Works: In praise of distilled water | Ottawa Citizen

Our minerals will come from a diet rich in plant-based foods and a healthy diet will provide all we need.

Raw food diet is the best answer to that.

So if you want to have something that all of your family will benefit from I definitely recommend investing in this.

We love it!

Our children don’t want to drink tap water anymore!

And before you do, do some research.
