Every day at The Tyent Alkaline Water Company, we hear from people world wide with questions about ionized alkaline water and we make every effort to answer them. Is it pure? Is it safe? Is it good for you? And on and on. People have questions…Tyent has answers. Today we’re discussing distilled water.
Today’s first question:
Isn’t Distilled Water Just as Good as Ionized Alkaline Water?
No. If ever there were two opposite waters, it is ionized alkaline water and distilled. Let’s begin with distilled water. Distilled water is highly acidic and safe for drinking for only a short period of time. It is used in industry and in steam irons because it contains no steam vent clogging minerals.
Distilled water gets its name from the process by which it is created, distillation. In order to create distilled water, regular water is boiled, evaporated and the vapor condensed and collected. The distillation process removes impurities from the water and also dissolves minerals.
However, there is inherent danger with long-term consumption. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “Distilled water, being essentially mineral-free, is very aggressive, in that it tends to dissolve substances with which it is in contact. Notably, carbon dioxide from the air is rapidly absorbed, making the water acidic and even more aggressive.”
Given that, the more distilled water a person drinks, the higher the body’s acidity becomes. Another danger that comes with the continuous drinking of distilled water is that it absorbs vital minerals in the body such as calcium, magnesium and other trace minerals and spills them into the urine where they are eliminated as waste. Not good.
There is substantial data proving that the more mineral loss the body suffers, the greater risk there is for a host of degenerative diseases such as osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, hypothyroidism, coronary artery disease and high blood pressure. Many of these are generally associated with premature aging.
Ionized alkaline water is not only better water, it is water that is better for the body. Ionized alkaline water is created when regular water is introduced into a water ionizer such as a Tyent machine, where it is filtered and ionized.
Ionized alkaline water is very rich in natural minerals, has a pH value of above 7.0 (making it alkaline), and is replete with antioxidants which literally eat the free radicals that form in an acidic environment and inhibit the formation of other radicals.
A water ionizer from Tyent greatly reduces the presence of over 200 contaminants found in ordinary water, including 99% of lead. Ionized alkaline water is clean, mineral rich, easily absorbed by the body and healthy for you to drink…especially long term.
If you want to drink healthy water that is good for you and costs only about 6¢ glass, get a Tyent Water Ionizer — it’s a healthy investment into your good health.
On the other hand, if you have some wrinkly clothes, you may want to consider investing in some distilled water for your steam iron. Have any other practical uses for distilled water? Let us know in the comments!
