Is Distilled Water Safe To Drink?
I sometimes get emails or calls from people who ask if distilled water is safe to drink. The answer is absolutely!
Distilled water has been purified by the same process that nature has purified water, known as the hydrologic cycle. Water distillers boil water, causing evaporation to occur similarly to how the sun heats up oceans or lakes, which produces evaporation. Then the water condenses into a steam tube-like clouds forming in the sky, and lastly, it drips pure water into a glass jar or stainless steel storage tank like rain falling.
Distilled water should be used for all of your consumptive needs, such as drinking, cooking, baking, making ice cubes, coffee, and tea, rinsing produce for your pet, and watering your plants.
People need to consume toxin-free water as it has been proven that many toxins can lead to illness and or disease. Since distillation produces 99.9% pure water, it makes sense for people to drink toxin-free distilled water. Distilled water is often recommended for the elderly, infants, and those with immune deficiencies because it is toxin-free and will not add any additional stress to the body. For the same reason, healthy people should drink distilled water to maintain good health.
One myth about distilled water is that it will leach minerals from your body. This is not true. What is distilled water? It’s just H2O. H2O does not leach minerals from your body. Many doctors, such as dr. Andrew Andrew Weil, Dr. Brian Clement, and Dr. Alan Banic agree that distilled water, H2O, is so pure that it can do a more efficient job of delivering oxygen to cells and taking away the waste.
The US Navy and US embassies have used distillers and recommended drinking distilled water for decades. Not only is it safe to drink, but it’s healthy too.
Another myth about distilled water is that it removes needed minerals from water. Most minerals in water are inorganic and in a form that your body can’t absorb. In fact, inorganic minerals can build up inside the body and increase the stiffening of the joints, kidneys and gallstones, calcium deposits, and arthritis. Furthermore, you would have to drink hundreds of gallons of water a day to get any of the necessary minerals from water. We actually get the minerals we need from our food, not from drinking water.
“The pH of distilled water is at or near 7.0.”
Some people think the distilled water is too acidic to drink; however, the pH of distilled water is near that of tap or bottled water, which is around 7.0 on the pH scale, which is neutral. As distilled water is exposed to the air, it will absorb some carbon dioxide, which might slightly affect the pH but have no impact on your body. One of your kidneys’ main functions is maintaining proper pH throughout your entire body. Did you know that the pH can vary from organ to organ or even cell to cell inside your body?
We hope this video resolves any confusion about the safety of drinking distilled water.
Thanks for watching, and be well.
