What are the advantages of drinking distilled water over tap water?
Being health conscious, I am just wondering if anyone knows if there are advantages for drinking distilled water.
Well if it is truly distilled water than you can be sure there is no fluoride in it, which is the number one poison in tap water. The issue with distilled is the lack of natural nutrients. It is also going to give you a good bowel flush if used for an extended period of time. I would recommend a natural spring that is verified safe by your local water authority. Though distilled can be a good infrequent alternative. When I work with plant based tinctures I use distilled because there are no fine particulates which makes the drink pure.
well distilled water can also be used as drinking water, but one should keep in mind that drinking distilled water is not going to add any health problem nor going to improve health status. But the one thing i want to mention that drinking distilled water is not going to provide some essential minerals like Na+, Ca++, and so on, which are nearly present in common drinking water.
The advantage of drinking distilled water is that you don't have all the chemicals that they put in tap water. Also, you have a very low chance of having a boil order on your water. However, the problem with this is. Distilled water is ultra filtered. They filter it so much so it takes out all the bad things in the water. That is actually takes out all of the vitamins, and other stuff that is actually good in the water.
I would say it is a 50/50 chance. You may not get the bad chemicals that they put in tap water, however, you are not going to get the vitamins and other stuff found in the tap water.
Drinking distilled water isn't really ideal. Using distilled water to reconstitute concentrated orange ,pineapple and grape juice is fine because you are simply replacing the pure water for the pure water that was removed and probably steam distilled
Distilled water is acidic while tap water (our tap water here in Davao City, Philippines) is alkaline. I'm not sure if all tap water is alkaline.
