Health risks of demineralized water.

Jackson Spring Water - Kids

Health conscious consumers need to be aware that while some water types are beneficial, some may be"demineralizing" your body.

Health experts have also reported that the longer you drink "demineralized" waters, such as distilled water, the more you are at risk of developing multiple mineral deficiencies and placing your body into an acidic state.

Furthermore, consumers have recently been advised by the media that many bottled waters are nothing more than filtered tap water.

As a result, many consumers feel mislead and are searching for natural, healthy alternatives for their families.

Many water companies use reverse osmosis or distillation processes to clean up city tap water and to remove contaminants and undesirable metals such as lead. Although the taste is improved and contaminates have been removed, consumers need to know that these types of water have also been stripped of "98 to 100 per cent of all naturally occurring minerals".

Do you really want to drink water which needed to be cleaned up, or would you prefer water from a source that was safe and drinkable to begin with? Would you choose any food that has been stripped of all its minerals? Then why would you drink "demineralized" water?

The World Health Organization has reported that consuming "demineralized" water compromises the mineral and water metabolism of the body.

BalanceTV, a well known CTV health program also concluded that "If you drink distilled water exclusively you definitely increase your risk of high blood pressure, heart beat irregularities and muscle cramping. In fact, if you're an athlete, you should never drink distilled water because it can quickly rob you of your valuable electrolytes, calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium."
