Purified water has become a big buzz word in marketing. Companies tout a water’s purity as a way of saying it’s better water. Terms like “zero water” have been born to entice consumers to buy certain brands. But what is it exactly is pure water and should we drink it?
Don’t Drink Pure Water
Pure water, unfortunately, is water that has been stripped of everything using aggressive filtration methods like reverse osmosis or distillation. All of the natural minerals, oxygen and ions have been stripped away leaving totally empty, dead water. Even a cat knows not to drink stagnant water!
When a person drinks purified water, they are drinking acidic water that will strip away properties of what it comes in contact with. Think rust. Purified water will strip away minerals from your bones, absorb oxygen your body uses for energy, and over time raise your body’s acidity, leading to problems related to acidosis, such as poor sleep, poor metabolism, aches and pain, and even high blood pressure.
If a person becomes too acidic, they could develop adult onset diseases like cancer, arthritis, or worse.
Purified water was never meant to be sold as drinking water. It was developed in scientific laboratories for the purpose of cleaning instruments.
The Water You Should Drink
So, what are the properties of the water we should drink? First, it should be full of ions, which is natural energy from the sun, or certain minerals, or even kinetic energy from moving along a stream or creek bed. These ions combine with hydrogen to form hydroxl ions, which are a natural antioxidant to your body.
Second, it should be alkaline and not acidic. Alkaline water is full of alkaline minerals, which your body uses to maintain body pH and run several important systems, like your heart, lungs and kidneys. Purified water or acidic water has no minerals in it, so your body doesn’t get what it needs.
It’s best to avoid any bottled waters because even if they have minerals in them, they have been sitting around so long on shelves and in trucks that they have lost their natural ions and thus don’t have any antioxidants in them, which your body needs to detoxify.
The best water to drink is ionized water from a water ionizer because it is water that has been filtered to remove all harmful contaminants and then put through an electrolysis chamber where the water is energized with ions to restore the antioxidants.
So, don’t get caught up in the pure water scam. Empty, stagnant water will only harm your body over time. Water ionizers like the Genesis Platinum and Revelation Under sink Water Ionizer are top of the line in filtration and ionization and will make your water alkaline, full of antioxidants, and minerals your body needs.
