Frequently Asked Questions
What is Distilled Water?
Distilled water is any water that has been boiled into steam and then condensed back into water
(usually via a water distiller) which creates pure water. This water is
free from impurities and inorganic material that can be added during the ‘cleaning’ process
undertaken at water treatment plants.
How does Distillation Work?
The process of processing any source of water into distilled water is simple, straight-forward and
effective. The source water is heated until boiling and turns into steam then cooled into distilled
water. Boiling the source water removes any bacteria, contaminants and inorganic material
bringing the inorganic matter down on average to 1 parts per million (PPM).
Why use Distilled Water?
As your body cannot process the inorganic material found in water before being distilled they are
processed by various organs around the body and stored. By drinking distilled water it will attract
the inorganic material/minerals from the body and remove them from your system over time.
What are the Advantages?
Using distilled water to detox your body by removing the inorganic material will have many long
term health benefits such as reducing the risk of heart disease, reduce the risk of cancer, removes
toxins from the body, aides weight loss, increases your stamina and energy, improves skin
complexion, improves hair texture and quality.
What are the disadvantages?
Some people do find the taste of distilled water ‘flat’ and less flavorful, but this is due to the
inorganic material being removed from it during distillation. Stick with it and after a short time
your taste buds will adjust!
6. Do some contaminants carry over with the steam in the distillation process?
Some contaminants that have boiling points lower than that of water could carry over, which is why these distillers are equipped with a safety feature: a volatile gas vent, a design feature which removes most of these contaminants. For even further protection, each distiller is also equipped with a carbon post-filter to provide you with the highest quality distilled water with a 99% or higher removal rate of contaminants. Distillation also makes the water closer to neutral pH, because it removes all contaminants, whether acid or alkaline.
Besides drinking, what are some other uses for distilled water?
Besides drinking, distilled water is great for hundreds of uses, including:
- Cooking: Chlorine-free soups & vegetables – taste the improvement – pots and pans are easier to clean.
- Baby Formulas: Boiling tap water kills bacteria, but doesn’t remove contaminants. Distilled water, virtually free of contaminants.
- Beverages: Savor true flavors of coffee, tea, and juices. The taste is incomparable, and you’ll also use less.
- Low Sodium Diets: 99.9% of sodium removed in the distillation process.
- Ice Cubes: Won’t spoil the taste of beverages. Makes cleaner, harder ice cubes.
- Pets: They’ll love you for giving them clean water.
- Complexion Care: Tap water impurities can clog skin pores – feel the difference with distilled water.
- Plants: Plants and cut flowers live longer and look healthier because, just like nature’s rainwater, distilled water is free of mineral salts.
- Aquariums: Fish thrive in a chlorine-free tank. Distilled water is clean and clear.
- Contact Lenses: Distilled water won’t irritate eyes.
- Humidifiers: Eliminates white dust, mineral salt, and rust concerns. Adds more life and efficiency.
- Steam Irons: Eliminate scaling of steam iron vents. Irons will operate more efficiently and last longer.
- Kettles: Eliminate mineral salt scaling. Inside of kettles will look like new.
- Photography: Perfect development.
- Wet-Cell Batteries: Batteries last long with Distilled Water.
Are there any minerals missing from distilled water that my body needs?
It is true that you need minerals, but these are best obtained from your food and food supplements. There are two sources of minerals: organic and inorganic. Our bodies cannot easily assimilate minerals that come from an inorganic source such as the water we drink. Our bodies receive the minerals they assimilate from organic sources such as the food we eat. Green, leafy vegetable, meat, and dairy products are all good sources.
