What Are the Real Mineral Water Benefits?

Jun 19, 2008
Is there a big advantage to mineral revitalization water purification systems? Are they worth the money? We have the answers.

Minerals are nothing new. They are naturally occurring substances. They are in the ground, the very earth, itself, so they are also present in anything that grows from or passes through the soil. They are also found in anything that eats plant foods and anything that lives in the water.

When it comes to human health, there are recommended daily allowances for all of the essential trace minerals. Some companies suggest that the mineral water benefits are similar to what you would get from taking a vitamin supplement; the prevention of nutritional deficiencies.

It is true that studies have shown that drinking distilled, which is de-mineralized, water on a regular basis leads to digestive problems and eventually can cause mineral deficiencies, if no other source of the nutrients are available. That is why companies have introduced mineral revitalization water purification systems for home use. That is also why so many people believe that there are a large number of mineral water benefits.

The problem; the studies were conducted to advise consumers and health care professionals about what is the healthiest liquid to consume. Researchers did not compare mineral water benefits to those of regular tap water or water from any other source. They only compared people who drank distilled, as opposed to naturally occurring.

The introduction of the mineral revitalization water purification systems was supposed to counter the disadvantages of reverse osmosis, distillation and other purification methods that remove naturally occurring minerals. It is basically, a waste of money, so is buying bottled mineral water.

There is no scientific evidence to support the claim that there are mineral water benefits that are not found in the purified, mineral balanced option. The better filtration systems for home use provide the latter.

There are some anecdotal studies that seem to suggest that there are some mineral water benefits. In areas where it is naturally occurring, it is said that people live longer and are healthier. While it is true that de-mineralized water is unnatural and probably not good for you. There is no indication that taking out what is naturally present and then "revitalizing" the H2O by adding them back is a good option.

That's why we say that mineral revitalization water purification systems are a waste of money. They simply take out what was already there and then add it back in. The balance may be different, but you can do the same thing with the newer systems that use ion exchange and for a small percentage of the cost.

We have to admit that there is a school of thought that says mineral water benefits are numerous. So, the subject is debatable. But, mineral revitalization water purification systems only have an advantage over the old reverse osmosis units. We think that it would be difficult for anyone to debate that fact.
