Experts have longrecommended the drinking of at least sixty-four ounces of water a day in order for our systems to function at optimum levels. Water allows our body to effectively absorb thenutrients that we need from food and systematically flushes our kidneys of waste. Infact, all of our internal organs operate at higher capacity when we are well hydrated.When we are drinking water for health our blood thins as it should; when we aredehydrated, blood becomes thicker making our bodies work harder to pump it; thismakes the overall functions of the body slow and inefficient.A part of drinking water for health is to allow our body to effectively digest our food;without water our body cannot effectively eliminate waste.

National Water Resources Board
From WikiPilipinas: The Hip 'n Free Philippine EncyclopediaChairman: Angelo T. ReyesWebsite: http://www.nwrb.gov.ph/The Philippines' National Water Resources Board (Filipino: Pambansang Lupon saKayamanang Tubig), abbreviated as NWRB, is an agency of the Philippine governmentunder the Department of Environment and Natural Resources responsible for ensuringthe optimum exploitation, utilization, development, conservation and protection of thecountry's water resource, consistent with the principles of Integrated Water ResourceManagement.
HistoryThe predecessor of the NWRB is the National Water Resources Council (“NWRC”),which was created in 1974 under Presidential Decree No. 424, otherwise known as the“Integrated Reorganization Plan”. It was subsequently renamed as NWRB pursuant toExecutive Order No. 124-A. Under the said decree, the NWRB is tasked among others,to:
Coordinate and integrate water resource development activities of the country;
Formulate general criteria, methods and standards for data collection, projectinvestigation, formulation, planning design and feasibility evaluation, and rulesand regulations for the exploitation and optimum utilization of water resources;
Review and approve water resource development plans and programs of other agencies;
Undertake river basin surveys, inventories and appraisals, and developcomprehensive basin-wide plans of storage and control to maximize theconservation and multi-purpose use of water;
Undertake hydrologic surveys and establish, operate and maintain observationstation networks and centralized water resources data center;
Conduct and/or promote special studies and researches with other governmentor agencies on related aspects of water resources development.The NWRB is also tasked to advise the National Economic and Development Authority(“NEDA”) on matters pertaining to water resources development projects and programs;and recommend general policies and guidelines and short/long range plans andprograms for water resources development.In 1976, Presidential Decree No. 1067, otherwise known as the “Water Code of thePhilippines” was enacted. Based on the principles that: (a) “all water belongs to theState;and (b) the State may allow the use or development of its waters byadministrative concession,” the NWRB was instituted as a “water resource regulator”tasked to regulate and control the utilization, exploitation, development, conservationand protection of all water resources.The specific functions of the NWRB, as a "Water Resource Regulator", include amongothers, (a) the issuance water permits for the appropriation, and use of waters; and (b)adjudication of disputes relating to the appropriation, utilization, exploitation,development, control and conservation, protection of waters.In 1977, the Board of Power and Waterworks (BPW) was abolished pursuant toPresidential Decree No. 1206. The function of the BPW that were inherited from thePublic Service Commission as regards waterworks systems, were later transferred tothe NWRB, instituting the NWRB as an “economic regulator” of waterworks systems.In 2002, the approval of tariffs for water districts was transferred to the NWRB from theLocal Water Utilities Administration (LWUA), pursuant to Executive Order No. 123. Inthe same executive order, the membership of the NWRB Board was changed to its
present composition.

We all heard debates about which type of water is better for our body and our healthoverall - Distilled/Purified Water or Mineral Water?But what is the concensus? Nothing really. Even experts are divided when it comes tothis subject. I personally know Doctors who will recommend Distilled/Purified Water, andthose who recommends Mineral Water. Both Doctors will even provide Scientific papersto support their beliefs.However, the Scientific community did not release any official standing on this matter.We can only assume two things, [1] there are no complete and well organized studiesconducted to finally put an end to this debate; and/or [2] they do not want to killcompanies in the process (which will become Political afterwards).So, we the public are left to our own. What now? Well, here are some notes or snippetsI collected from the Internet.
Follow up:
Is distilled or Purified water enough? Distilled/Purified is water that has virtually all of itsimpurities as well as minerals and electrolytes stripped through distillation (boiling thewater and re-condensing the steam into clean a container), leaving all contaminantsbehind. Distilled/Purified water is good clean water, unfortunately all the minerals and electrolytes are also all stripped out. Distilled/Purified water tends to be slightly acidic moving your body to a less healthy state. contributing your body to a condition prime for viruses, bacteria, and other menaces.
Dr. John Sorenson, a leading authority on minerals metabolism, said, “Minerals in drinking water are more easily and better absorbed than minerals from food.” Creating “healthy water” means removing harmful agents but keeping thebeneficial minerals. Mineralize water is needed for all cellular functions and if there are no minerals in drinking water your body will strip the minerals from somewhere else in your body to satisfy its need. While mineral water has many great benefits, not all mineral water are alike or has the same benefits. It’s wise to consider before purchasing mineral water is the content of what minerals are available in the drink and it absorbability.
Now as to the argument that distilled water leaches out minerals. This is true, and this isexactly what we want it to do. The minerals it leaches out are of the unusable, ionic
