Sometimes we take things as basic as drinking water for granted. It’s such a mom thing to say when you go on about how other people in the world don’t have water to drink blah blah blah but you know what? It’s only when you become a mom and have a child to raise that you realize just how important these essentials are. Another thing we take for granted is the kind of water we drink. It’s something I don’t give much thought to myself but I learned that drinking bottled water doesn’t necessarily mean that you drink healthy water.
I attended a recent initiative to learn more about the right kind of water to serve inside the home by Absolute Drinking Water. Like I said, having clean drinking water is a basic human need and we have to make sure that we’re vigilant when it comes to choosing the right drinking water. For it may seem clean in appearance, but it can contain bacteria, viruses, chemicals and other waste particles. Consumption of contaminated water can lead to serious health issues that can be lethal.
“What is the best kind of water that I should serve my family?” has been the long-standing question of every mom. Primarily because the market hosts to a lot of brands and options, and so the popular choice is to get the bottled water that fits within the budget. But one must know that water is differentiated and categorized based on the level of extensiveness of its cleaning process – and Absolute Distilled Drinking Water clears the air.
I was surprised to learn some water facts during the session and here’s a better explanation of what each type of bottled water is.
Know Your Water: Mineral vs Purified vs Distilled
Mineral water comes unprocessed, which makes it filled with various minerals such as calcium and magnesium. Although it is important to note that not all minerals found in a mineral water are necessary for the body. More so, there is a distinctive taste to it by nature brought by the minerals found inside it. It is bottled straight from the source and can be in the form of sparkling or still waters.
Purified water goes through additional processes, which is done to ensure other impurities are removed. Your purified drinking water may be coming from any source as long as it goes through a purification system that functions properly, and the water will almost always be very fit for drinking.
Distilled water is known to be the purest form of water because of the added step in water filtration that ensures that the water undergoes the most stringent distillation process. This additional process eliminates the minerals and all solid residues from the water source that may include toxic metals and chemicals. Thus, making this the cleanest and purest water of choice.
While there are several kinds of drinking water out in the market, moms should only choose the one that lives up to its highest standards of safety and cleanliness.
I had a great time with fellow mommy bloggers as we learned about mineral, purified and distilled drinking water. I also got to unleash my artistic side after it being dormant for quite some time now. How do you like what I made?
