The Water Question

by Polly N on July 29, 2011

We all know we need to drink water but the real question is what is the best water to drink? These days we have lots of options from alkaline water to filter water to distilled water to deionized water to reverse osmosis to tap water but which is better?

According to there are quite a few downsides to some of those options;

  • Tap water is municipal water that comes out of the faucets and has been treated, processed and disinfected. It is purified with chlorine and generally has added flouride. But one of the byproducts from using chlorine in our drinking water is linked to cancer1.
  • Distilled water can be any kind of water that has been vaporized and collected, leaving behind any solid residues, including minerals. Distilled water has no minerals in it at all.
  • Reverse osmosis water has been forced through membranes that remove larger particles, pollutants and minerals. Reverse osmosis water is usually acidic2.
  • Deionized water has had ionized impurities and minerals removed from it but not bacteria or pathogens.
Our body requires minerals for optimum health and unfortunately the above sources are stripped of their mineral content which can lead to migraines, high blood pressure and constipation!
Drinking enough water is essential especially considering the brain consists of 76%, muscle 75% and bone 25%. As with food, the best source of water is naturally occurring, untouched and full of minerals.
According to Body Ecology these come in the form of;
  • Well water  – comes from a hole drilled in the ground that taps into a water source. A pump brings it to the surface. If you do not have access to city water, then you would need a well.
  • Natural spring water  – flows up from a natural spring and is bottled at the source.
  • Artesian or spring waters  – come from a natural source but are bottled off-site and are processed and purified.
  • Mineral water – could be natural spring water or artesian water, comes from an underground source, and contains at least 250 parts per million (ppm) of dissolved solids, including minerals and trace elements.
One of things I have been meaning to do and not managed to get round to yet is collecting some spring water. Daniel Vitalis is a firm believer that spring water is the only water we should be drinking. A while back I bought 3 big demi-johns in preparation of visiting my nearest natural spring so that I could drink the cleanest water possible. Err well that job is still on my “to-do” list (I think in the back of my mind I’m waiting for summer so I can do it on a beautiful sunny day – well that’s my lame excuse!) So in the meantime I have been buying Isklar water which is thought to be one of the cleanest drinking waters sourced from Norway. It is described as “glacial natural mineral water of exceptional purity”. BUT it comes in plastic bottles which is a bit of a shame as we know that plastic leaches which means there will be some degree of toxicity within it.
So seeing as I don’t have spring water to hand, I do what I think is the next best thing. I buy good quality water, decant it into my glass demijohns and add some Adya Clarity which helps to dissolve contaminants within water making the toxins harmless.
According to Raw Living, “Adya Clarity is a Para-magnetic sulfate mineral solution that is extracted from the rarest, most mineral rich Biotite/Black Mica volcanic deposit in Mount Fuji, Japan. A proprietary acid sulfate process is used to perfectly extract the elements from the Black Mica that are made 100% bioavailable. The Mount Fuji deposit is the only known PURE™ resource of Black Mica”
Here are just some of the functions of Adya Clarity;
  • Magnetic Sulfate Minerals increase the elements needed for optimum cellular function
  • Unnecessary elements are bound and eliminated thus creating equilibrium within body
  • Purify, Microcluster, Structure and Optimize any water by simply adding Adya Clarity
  • Remove Chlorine, Fluoride, Pharmaceuticals, Chemicals, Plastics, Solvents, Heavy Metals & Pathogens
  • Provides your body with the full spectrum of elements in soluble form
  • Eliminates viruses, harmful bacteria and parasites by burning them up through deposition
  • Removes cellular waste residues out of all tissues, fluids, glands and organs
  • Activates oxygen and increase assimilation of all nutrients to feed and nourish your cells
  • Stimulates proper and efficient cellular metabolism
  • Maximizes the potential of growth hormones, Glutathione and Super Oxide Dismutase
  • Provides profound hydration at the cellular level
  • Para-Magnetic sulfate minerals are the key factor to optimize all enzymatic functions in your body
(I’m particularly interested in its ability to oxygenate the body efficiently as cancer cells do not like oxygen and I do not like cancer!)
  • Eliminates anaerobic bacteria
  • Eliminates chlorine and sodium fluoride
  • Reduces heavy metals such as mercury and lead
  • Reduces THM’s and other carbon-based wastes

I don’t know about you but I certainly want to be drinking the purest water I can get so for me, Adya Clarity is a constant cupboard keeper. It is thought that water will stays clean and safe to drink 8 months after being treated. So if you don’t have a natural spring on your doorstep (check out to locate your nearest one), then I would definitely recommend Adya Clarity.

I would still like to find a water filter ( worktop rather than taps) but not sure what’s the best? Got to be better than tap water even if its not as good as spring well water?
Anyone use one?
