What is Mineral?

Mineral in natural water is only inorganic that is rejected by the cells and tissues of human body, which if not evacuated, can cause arterial obstructions and even more serious damage. Only plants can convert inorganic mineral to organic mineral, which can be useful for human body.

Besides drinking, what are some other uses for distilled water?

Cooking: Chlorine-free soups & vegetable (taste the improvement) pots and pans are easier to clean.

Baby Formulas: Boiling tap water kills bacteria, but doesn't remove contaminants. Distilled water, virtually free of contaminants.

Beverages
: taste true flavors of coffee, tea, and juices. The taste is incomparable, and you'll also use less.

Low Sodium Diets
: 99.9% of sodium removed in the distillation process.

Ice Cubes
: Won't spoil the taste of beverages. Makes cleaner, harder ice cubes.

Pets
: They'll love you for giving them clean water.

Complexion Care
: Tap water impurities can clog skin pores - feel the difference with distilled water.

Plants
: Plants and cut flowers live longer and healthier because, just like nature's rainwater, distilled water is free of mineral salts.

Aquariums
: Fish thrive in a chlorine-free tank. Distilled water is clean and clear.

Contact Lenses
: Distilled water won't irritate eyes.

Humidifiers
: Eliminates white dust, mineral salt, and rust concerns. Adds more life and efficiency.

Steam Irons
: Eliminate scaling of steam iron vents. Irons will operate more efficiently and last longer.

Kettles
: Eliminate mineral salt scaling. Inside of kettles will look like new.

Photography
: Perfect development.

Wet-Cell Batteries
: Batteries last longer with Distilled Water.

20 Facts About Distilled Water

Distilled water...

1. is water that has been turned into vapor so that its impurities are left behind. Upon condensing, it becomes pure water.

2. is the only type of water which meets the definition of water: hydrogen + oxygen.

3. is perfectly pure water.

4. is also odorless, colourless and tasteless.

5. is free of virtually all inorganic minerals including salt.

6. is the only natural solvent that can be taken into the body without damage to the tissues.

7. acts as a solvent in the body by dissolving nutrients so they can be assimilated and taken into every cell.

8. dissolves the cell wastes so the toxins can be removed.

9. dissolves inorganic mineral substances lodged in the tissues of the body so that the substances can be eliminated in the process of purifying the body.

10. does not leach out organic body minerals but does collect and remove the toxic inorganic minerals, which have been rejected by the cells of the body and are therefore, nothing more than harmful debris obstructing the normal functions of the body.

11. is indeed the most ideal and beneficial water for all humans and for animals.

12. leaves no residue of any kind when it enters the body.

13. is the most perfect water for the healthy functioning of those great sieves, the kidneys.

14. Is the perfect liquid for blood.

15. Is the ideal liquid for efficient functioning of the lungs, stomach, liver and all other vital organs.

16. Is universally accepted as the standard for biomedical applications and for drinking water purity.

17. Is so pure that all drug prescriptions are formulated with distilled water.

18. Is fresh, clean and has pleasing taste.

19. makes foods and drinks prepared with it taste noticeably better. The flavor is subtle enough not to interfere with the food it is mixed with.

20. Is the only pure water left on our polluted planet!

Why I Drink Distilled Water?

Pure distilled water...

Helps transport substances through out my body

As one of the greatest solvents known, water helps prepare substances for transport across cell membranes and/or distribution through our bodies by way of blood and lymph. This function of water in our bodies is impaired when the water is filled with contaminants that interfere with its ability to dissolve bodily substances efficiently.

Helps my body chemistry to regulate and function properly

Metabolic activities depend upon enzymes, coenzymes, trace minerals and other substances which are present in minute quantities.

Contaminants and toxic chemicals, introduced into our body through our drinking water can interfere with normal metabolic activities and enzymatic pathways.

We can understand this interference better when we consider these vital elements may be present in quantities of a few thousand ions or molecules; whereas, just one swallow of water containing one part per million of a toxic chemical will contain six hundred quadrillion (600,000,000,000,000,000,) toxic molecules.

Helps cleanse my body of waste materials

Within the body, water acting as a solvent, reaches into every cell to absorb and carry away the poisons that are formed as a part of the life process. Lots of pure water is needed for this task.

We all know that it is easier to wash dishes in a sink full of clean water than in a cup full of dirty water. The blood circulates 400 gallons of water through the kidneys each day.

Common sense tells us that when the water we consume is pure, it can do a much better job than when it is already contaminated with toxic substances.

Helps keep my body cool

This is accomplished when water in my body evaporates from the skin.

If the water in my body is full of contaminants they will be left as residues that will encrust the skin, leaving it rough, dry and a breeding ground for bacteria. Drinking lots of pure water, on the other hand, will help leave the skin soft and pliable.

Makes my food and beverages taste better

What a delight it is to drink a glass full of frozen juice made with distilled water! Without the chemicals and minerals in the water, there is nothing to hide the natural fresh taste of the fruit.

Many people have told me they cannot drink their favorite beverage made with tap water once they begin using distilled water.

And, distilled water also makes foods cooked in water tastier and the color remains bright like nature intended, since there are no chemicals and other toxic substances to turn them brownish-yellow.

I do not consume any harmful substances when I drink distilled water

Chlorine, which has been added to our tap water, may be one of the most dangerous chemicals consumed by man.

Research studies indicate that chlorine combines with organic substances found in tap water to produce chlorinated hydrocarbons that may be involved in such insidious diseases as hardening of the arteries, heart attacks, strokes and cancer.

I have a chlorine test kit which I use to test for chlorine level in my tap water. It may be higher than allowed in my swimming pool.

Tap water may be drinkable but don't swim in it.

The fallacy about drinking water for the minerals it contains

Some people have the mistaken belief that essential minerals are derived from water they drink. Yes, we do need minerals. But the source of minerals for the body is food we eat - not the water we drink.

Plants have a unique ability to convert inorganic minerals absorbed from the soil and water into organic forms our bodies can use. Our bodies can use few, if any, of the minerals absorbed in water. These minerals merely contaminate our water and hinder the water from performing its material functions.

According to experts in the field, there are several different kinds of water, and almost all of them are harmful in some way. These waters carry minerals, metals and inorganic compounds into our body that we can't use. These waters carry 80% of all sickness and disease. They may contain over 700 identified chemicals all of which permeate our systems and may begin accumulating there.

When water brought into our bodies is already polluted, its natural cleansing functions are impaired. As a result, we may develop health problems as these pollutants build up in our blood vessel, joints and internal organs.

Some health specialists believe we experience hardening of the arteries, arthritis, kidney stones, gall stones, vision problems, (glaucoma and cataracts), loss of hearing, diabetes, obesity, emphysema and other ailments in greater intensities and more frequently when we live with and consume polluted or contaminated water.

Of the several types of water, such as: rain, snow-melt, raw, hard, filtered, soft, de-ionized, boiled and distilled - only distilled water is pure and virtually free of all contaminates. As a result, distilled water has no taste, no color, no odor, no bacteria, no heavy metals, no acids, no organic minerals, no toxic chemicals, no poisons.

Distilled water enters your system clean. It is free to absorb and wash away the poisons your system generates and the poisons that have accumulated.There's not absolute proof that drinking distilled water will remove kidney and gall stones, reduce cataracts or cure emphysema. But, there are hundreds of case histories of people who have enjoyed success in alleviating or overcoming these health problems when they began distilled water exclusively.

This water has been relatively pure containing only moderate amounts of naturally occurring substances. But conditions have changed. Since the industrial revolution, and especially since World War II, we have dumped synthetic chemicals by the thousands into the environment. We are not adapted to these man-made chemicals. We know that many of them are toxic. We do not know the effects they will have on the bodies of our children and the generations to come.
