Re: Is tap water ok?

I heard that distilled water was detrimental as well. I don't know if it pulls the minerals from the body as you say or if just doesn't have them (and therefore doesn't replenish). But ya, I think drinking water with minerals is best.

However, bottled water that was filtered by reverse osmosis usually has the nessecary minerals added back into it. So I don't know if articles like that are really all that valid. I'll read it though and see.

Edit: Yep, I don't think that article is valid. Of course you don't want to drink straight RO water, but this is misleading as all the bottled water I've seen is filtered and then has minerals added back in. Maybe they're just trying to sell their product, idk.
