The benefits of distilled water
Written by William Fryer - MA Oxon
Why drink distilled water?
The human body is made up of over 50% water, so it is important to choose the type of water you drink carefully. Tap water and bottled water both contain chemicals that are out of your control; the only way to really know what you’re putting into your body is to use a water distiller. Water distillers provide water purity superior to any other method, beating bottled water and reverse osmosis methods, along with a host of additional benefits.
Protect your family from chemicals
By using a water distiller, you will be avoiding potentially harmful chemicals in tap water such as pesticides, nitrates, fertaliser and contamination from your copper or lead pipes.
Protect your family’s teeth
This method will also remove the fluoride from your water, which is now found in toothpaste. Fluoride was originally added to local water supplies to help strengthen teeth, however too much exposure leads to fluorosis, which leaves a brown staining effect on young teeth. By distilling your water you can protect your children’s teeth.
Cheaper and more convenient than bottled water
It is commonly thought that water distillers are expensive and use up a lot of electricity. However, a typical distiller costs approximately 30p for four litres of water, equating to 8p per litre, much cheaper than bottled water brands!
Improves bodily functions
Medical professionals say that tap water contributes to arteries hardening and blood vessels calcifying, which can lead to great damage within the body as your brain is made up of many small and delicate arteries, veins and capillaries. Distilled water benefits your body as distilled water takes out the impurities of the water, so your body receives pure water, rather than water it has to filter itself.
Prevents kidney stones
In addition to calcification in the brain, tap water can also contribute to hard masses of urine crystals, calcium, phosphate and oxalates forming in the kidneys. Tap water and bottled water can contribute to kidney stones forming when they contain too much calcium. Distilled water is free of these minerals, so the risk is avoided.
