What is Pure Water ?
The meaning of pure water may be different from person to person ... it is a bit of a generalized term, and loosely translated it means free from additives, impurities or contaminants.
However, it can take on different meanings, if we talk about pure spring water, bottled water extracted from a natural spring, and that spring needs to be situated in an area where it is assured that no contaminants are seeping into ground-water levels.
Another meaning for pure water is distilled water, which is obviously the purest of pure, but is it actually good for human consumption? It could be argued that total pure water, with no traces of anything including minerals may dilute electrolytes within our system.
Clean drinking water is essential to humans and other life forms, but clean may not mean pure. We never talk about pure if we talk about tap-water. Pure water, as we have discussed, in part means no contaminants, tap water which may be fit as clean drinking water, in most cases will have been made safe for drinking by chemical additives, such as chlorine. As as we are well aware of, in certain countries or cities, other chemicals have been added, sometimes disguised to be for health reasons, such as sodium fluoride. Mass medication is always controversial, esp if not everyone is happy about drinking treated water, and even more so, if the claimed benefits may be questionable.
Coming back to the question, what is pure water? The general answer would be, water which is "naturally fit for drinking, without any additives needed for cleaning or preserving. The next step of pure water are the various spring waters, and finally an ultra pure water would be distilled water, which is pure H02.
Pure H02 (water) is tasteless and odourless, the taste of water as we know it, comes form the minerals dissolved into the water, and as discussed before, the advertised purity of spring and mineral water refers to absence of toxins, pollutants and microbes, and not of the absence of minerals.
Water can be more acid or more alkaline, this depends on the minerals which have been dissolved into the water. Alkaline water may be beneficial to humans, but this is not conclusive as yet.
What is alkaline water?
Alkaline water has a pH of about 8. Normal water has a neutral pH, which is the number 7 on the scale. Most people tend to be too acid, depending on their diet. Alkaline water may neutralize an over-acid system.
Alkaline water has to be produced by a process know as ionisation.
However, to be able to implement electrolysis the water needs to be spring water, tap water or any water which is reasonable rich in mineral content. Distilled water is not suitable for electrolysis.
Alkaline water may have some benefits such as better hydration, it also carries an extra electron, which can help vitamins to fulfil their roll as free radical scavengers or ant-oxidants, reportedly acting as an anti-ageing agent.
