Organic vs Inorganic Minerals
An organic mineral is defined as a mineral attached to an organic substance such as Carbon,Hydrogen, Nitrogen and/or Oxygen. These include iron and potassium. Inorganic minerals do notattach themselves to Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen or Oxygen. These include NaCl, Cu, Mn, Se, KCl.Proponents of RO and distilled water often state that the natural minerals found in water are inorganicand that the body cannot absorb them. This is not true.Inorganic minerals are used by your bodyevery second of your life. The truth is that the body can assimilate both organic and inorganicminerals. It is in fact easier for the body to absorb inorganic minerals since organic minerals must firstbe metabolised in order to deal with the Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen and/or Oxygen.As an example, consider common salt (NaCl) which is inorganic. It is absorbed directly through thestomach. If large quantities of salt water are consumed one would eventually die. Why? Because thisinorganic mineral has been absorbed.
More facts about RO and Distilled Water
RO / Distilled water is not good drinking water because all of the valuable minerals have beenprocessed / filtered out of it.RO water purifiers and distillers remove most of the minerals from the water and therefore this water will tend to pull minerals and toxins from its surroundings in order to reach an equilibrium. It is a factthat water is the worlds best solvent and it easily dissolves hundreds of substances. Due to the lowmineral content of RO and distilled water, it has the capacity for and is hungry for more minerals.Scientifically, low mineral content water is known as aggressive water. Because of this:-
When storing RO or distilled water in plastic or metal containers, it may draw or dissolve toxinsfrom the container.
RO and distilled water also tend to pull necessary and useful minerals out of the body’s cells toleave the body as part of the waste products. When this happens, cellular repair cannot takeplace and constipation can occur.
What Happens When You Drink a Lot of RO / Distilled Water
Your blood stream becomes diluted. Because the blood now has a lower concentration of minerals init, nutrients (and toxins) flow from the surrounding cells into the bloodstream.This is good when you want to rid your body of toxins, but if this is continued for too long, you will drainyour body of nutrients and minerals as well. Your cells may well become “starved” and the rate ofuptake of both minerals and nutrients are decreased steadily. When you drink water that containsnatural minerals, the concentration of minerals in the blood is optimally and naturally maintained at
