Distilled Water

Ross Bridgeford

1. What is distilled water?

Distilled water is quite simply water that has been heated up to boiling point so that it evaporates. It then rises in the distiller unit and condenses – turning back into water but minus all of the toxin and impurities behind. Using a distiller rids the water of any bacteria, viruses, cysts, heavy metals, radionuclides, organics, inorganics, and particulates.

It is no different from the process seen in the hydrologic cycle when the water on the earth is heated by the sun, turning it into a vapour which rises and forms clouds (leaving the toxins and impurities behind). As the vapours cool, the clouds turn back into droplets of water and fall as rain back to the earth. This process borrowed from nature is what the distiller uses to make pure water!

2. Doesn’t Distilled Water Leech Minerals from the Body?

This is a claim that has been made and propagated for some fifteen years without any substantial evidence or logic. It is assumed that this myth was created by a manufacturer of a competing water purification system as a way of trying to create consumer distrust. It is unbelievable that it still survives today, regardless of it being as scientifically based as me saying that smoking can cure cancer.

However, do not just take my word for it, just have a search on the Internet – you will see that distilled water is backed by renowned health experts such as Dr Weil, Harvey and Marylyn Diamond, the American Medical Journal and Dr Schroeder.

3. Isn't distilled water void of minerals that my body needs?

This is another popular myth that is based on no scientific fact!

Put most simply, there are two types of mineral – organic and inorganic. The body is only able to absorb organic minerals and it gets these from foods. As the body does not have a need to get minerals from water the best thing we can do is make our drinking water as pure from toxins and chemicals as possible.

While it is true that the process of distillation removes certain minerals from the water it the majority of these are inorganic and are therefore useless to the body. In any case, research has highlighted that you would have to drink over 650 eight-ounce glasses of tap water to reach the Recommended Daily Allowance for calcium. The fact that distillation makes water 100% pure should not be of concern.

4. Are distillers expensive to run?

It takes an average distiller approximately 3 kilowatts to make 4 litres of distilled water. In the UK, the price of a kw of electricity is approximately 5.5p. Therefore, to make four litres of freshly distilled, pure water it costs only 16-17 pence! This is only 4 pence per litre!

From the perspective of return on investment - it would take you approximately 99 days for your distiller to pay for itself:

3 litres of distilled water per day = 12.37p 3 litres of bottled mineral water per day = 2.04 Difference = 1.92

Price of a Fresh & Pure Distiller = 189.99

Days to pay for distiller based upon saving above = 99 days!

Distilled water is the best and most economical way to turn your tap water into fresh, pure and pH neutral drinking water. Home water distillers are not vastly expensive and as you can see, they pay for themselves in as little as three months!
