» What is Distilled Water?
Distilled water is water, from any source, that has been boiled, evaporated and condensed back into water again. This process leaves behind all the chemicals (eg. chlorine, eostrogen, fluoride), bacteria, viruses, heavy metals and all manner of other possible contaminants that the water may have contained.
This process mimics the Earth's own cleaning system - the water cycle.
» Does drinking distilled water leech minerals from my body?
Many people are concerned by a popular myth that says drinking distilled water will strip your body of its minerals. However this myth is simply that, a fantasy invented by vested interests that want people to believe chemicals are needed in our water supply.
Distilled water does not leech minerals from your body's cells. It can only pick up minerals that your cells have excreted, working with your blood and lymph to carry these waste products to organs like the kidneys where the body can expell them. Far from being bad for your body, this cleaning mechanism is essential for optimum health.
We actually take the vast majority of the minerals our body needs from our food, not from drinking water. Water, and even 'mineral water,' contains minerals in miniscule amounts. You would need to drink a bath tub full of water, perhaps more, to get anywhere close to obtaining the minerals you might receive from eating an apple.
For those people that are still concerned about this leeching simply add a pinch of Himalayan Crystal salt to every litre of distilled water. This will add back every trace element present in the human body. Another common method to re-mineralise water is to add a grain of wholegrain organic rice to each litre bottle.
» Is distilled water slightly acidic and therefore bad for me?
Distilled water is ever so slightly on the acid side of a neutral Ph. The Ph of our distilled water is 7. However if you want to alkalise your water, simply add a teaspoon of aluminium free Bicarbonate of soda (Baking Powder) to every bottle. Just make sure your bi-carb is pure and contains no additives, especially anti-caking agents.
