Alright that's cool to know - but would it actually make a difference with your diet ? Or is it similar to having organic products ?Originally Posted by benmayro

You lose everything in the other H20. So if you want it than its bad for your diet and if you dont than its better for your diet.Originally Posted by jdss
Organic means contains carbon so it is impossible for water to be organic. You could dissolve some carbon containing molecules but they will have to be small because water is polar and most hydrocarbons are nonpolar

Distilled water won't have the vitamins and minerals (as benmayro was saying) that tap water will. In the U.S. tap water is usually tested and held to a higher standard than most bottled water, so if it tastes good I'd go with the tap water!

Besides drinking only distilled water, you're heading into OCD land.
Drink the tap water.

Cel why will drinking distilled water lead to dehydration, i never talkOriginally Posted by Celorza
about or even thought of it.. My only guess is that do to its low salt content it would cause the salt inside of the cells to go out because your body wants equilibruim..
Dont cook with distilled water it takes longer to cook due to stronger intermolecular forces

How about if you were to add salt to just straight water , for electrolyte reasons - how much would you want to add per liter ?Originally Posted by benmayro

depends on what you want, NaCl is highly soluble in water so you can get an unbelievable amount in it but i truely think its unneeded, are you having specific problems?

Well ill be going through a long , rough week lets say with little resources.. So I'm trying to gain as much knowledge and train my ass off right now .. So if I can add some form of salts to my body to help replenish what I'm losing at a proportionate amount it would be great . I just don't want to add too muchOriginally Posted by benmayro

I use tap water but I have a filter to remove most of the fluoride. Fluoride is a depressant that even the nazis added to the water to control people

Fluoride is added to the water, albeit in tiny amounts, to help in tooth health because many people fail to brush their teeth. Look at Great Britain who removed fluoride from their water and look at their teeth now...
Also, unless you have a healthy sodium level intake, then drinking distilled water (with sodium removed) may cause hyponaetremia.
Although during endurance events, not even tap water contains enough sodium to offset this condition

But like cel said, because it is stripped of ions, it will deplete your body of ions if you drink it. thus dehydrating you.
