Important information for your health…
Nowadays we are lucky enough to have a range of different waters readily available for a variety of uses including drinking and industrial applications.
Hazardous To Your Health
However, did you know that drinking either distilled or demineralised water on a regular basis over long periods is hazardous to your health?
Both types of water are created using different methods but the results are fairly similar (but not the same) in that the natural occurring minerals in the source water are removed. In addition, distilled water actively absorbs carbon dioxide when in contact with the air making it quite acidic.
Some health practitioners do advocate drinking distilled water as part of a controlled body detoxification process but the intake only lasts about a week or so. No more! Only do this with a qualified health professional.
So the longer you consume distilled or demineralised water the more chance you have of developing mineral difficiencies and a higher body acidity.
