following are some benefits of drinking distilled water:
Distillation eliminates water-borne
contaminants such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa that may be potentially
found in water. Drinking distilled water can help to alleviate the risk of infections and cleanse
the body of toxins.
As part of the water treatment
process, chemicals like chlorine or fluoride are commonly added to municipal
water. Fluoride can lead to discoloration of teeth and breaking down of tooth enamel, whereas
chlorine can be harmful to your skin and your body. Hence through distillation,
these chemicals are filtered out from the water and make the water clean and
pure to drink.
Calcium is known to be essential for maintaining
good health. But excessive amount of calcium can lead to kidney stone formation.
Municipal water supplies often contain calcium in it. By removing excess
calcium, distilled water reduces the risk of developing kidney stones.
Distilled water has the ability to
remove inorganic compounds that can cause damage to the body in many ways such
as accumulating in the blood arteries and small blood vessels causing plaque
A Word of Caution
distilled water is free of impurities, it also lacks minerals, some of which
are important for our body. This could have adverse effects if the water is
consumed over prolonged durations. It is also important to note that the
equipment used to distil the water should be clean to avoid contamination
during the process.
