Distilled Water Health Benefits

Distilling water is also known as demineralizing water as the majority of the impurities removed are harmful minerals. Although they might seem complicated, these systems actually work on a very simple principle of boiling water. Most of the contaminants in the water are large and cannot be evaporated, so distillers boil the water in order to remove a part of the contaminants in it that remain solid. After boiling, the steam is condensed in another chamber in order to turn it back into water with the difference that it now contains fewer chemicals and sediment. This ensures that the water you will be drinking is free of a large part of the impurities it used to contain.

Unfortunately, distillers have seen their fair share of negative publicity as well, publicity that you should definitely ignore. The reason why some shy from making the purchase is because minerals are removed from the water, including the beneficial ones. While this is true, the distillation procedure eliminating even the beneficial minerals, this doesn’t mean that your health will have to suffer as water isn’t your main source for calcium and magnesium anyway.

It is a common notion that you have to drink a hearty amount of water each day to ensure good health, but what you might not be aware of is the fact that the quality of the water you drink is equally important. If you are wondering what makes distilled water be of better quality than regular tap water, know that it is free of all types of contaminants. Therefore, it is very safe for consumption, boasting plenty of health benefits, including:

  • Distilled water is more than 99% free of all types of impurities.
  • You will feel more energic after drinking it.
  • Oxygen delivery will improve, thus your overall health will benefit.
  • It promotes proper digestion, so you won’t have stomach pains anymore.
  • The unpleasant symptoms of asthma, allergies, and arthritis will be alleviated.
  • Your skin will look a lot better, rashes, irritations, and even acne disappearing.

Distilled Water Myths – Real or Made Up?

While the benefits of drinking distilled water are many and proven, there are some undeniable downsides as well. However, we have to make a clear distinction between the actual downsides of this extra-purified water and the completely bogus information that roams around through word of mouth or via the internet.

  • It is an expensive process: FALSE! For the distillation process to take place, electricity is used in order to purify the water. However, this doesn’t make the process expensive at all as the amount of electricity used is negligible, approximately 30 pennies being consumed for the production of a gallon of distilled water.
  • It tastes flat: TRUE! As all the minerals in the water are removed during the distillation process, the water will inevitably taste a lot flatter than it normally does. This is not an issue, however, as it indicates a complete cleansing of the liquid of all impurities that lurk in it.
  • Your teeth will weaken: FALSE! It might be true that the distillation process strips the fluoride content away from the water you hydrate with, but this doesn’t mean that your teeth will suffer as all kinds of toothpaste contain fluoride in a sufficient quantity to upkeep your dental health.
  • Bad for the mineral intake: TRUE! Sort of…We say sort of because while it is indeed true that distilled water lacks beneficial minerals like calcium and magnesium, this isn’t an issue as you normally intake only about 15% of the daily needed amount through hydration. The food you consume is your actual main source of mineral intake, so you need not anchor on the idea that distilled water presents any type of threat to your health.
  • Cooking with it strips the meal of minerals: FALSE! No matter the type of water you use when you cook, the nutrient value of the food will automatically lower, so it applies to all water, not only for distilled water.

Does it remove minerals that my body needs to stay healthy?

Alas, water distillers do indeed remove all mineral content from drinking water. However, you should note the fact that your body does not really take its necessary mineral input from water as it actually assimilates it from food and food supplements better. Therefore, as long as you eat healthily, you do not have to worry about the lack of minerals in your drinking water.

Are there contaminants that might escape the distillation process?

There are contaminants that have lower boiling points than what the system provides, meaning that theoretically, contaminants could still reside in your drinking water. However, quality systems take care of this problem by featuring volatile gas vents and carbon post-filters that handle the remaining chemicals and pollutants.

Are there other uses to distilled water except drinking it?

Obviously, as any type of liquid, distilled water can be used in a variety of situations besides drinking it. You could use the water for cooking, in the preparation of beverages, when putting together baby formulas, for watering plants, for hydrating pets, and so on.


The cleanliness of the water you consume is of utmost importance to your health, and this is something that cannot be changed. What you can do, however, is ensure clean drinking water by using a distillation system. A pick we strongly recommend is the Pure Water Mini-Classic CT that comes with a glass storage container that preserves the liquid impurity-free for later consumption and is backed by a lengthy 15-year warranty. However, seeing how the price for this specific model is a bit expensive for some, we should draw your attention on a more budget-friendly option which comes in the form of the Megahome MH943TWS. Not only is it cheap, but it can provide up to 4 gallons of clean water per day, almost as much as its more expensive counterparts.
