Fresh water typically contains trace amounts of minerals including magnesium, calcium, potassium, chloride and sulfate. These are all necessary for the human body to function properly.
As well, certain naturally occurring minerals give water its own unique taste. Water that has been distilled, deionized or treated with reverse osmosis can have a flat nothing taste. Some doctors don’t recommend drinking this type of water on a regular basis because it can dilute the body of natural level of minerals.
Many bottled water companies that remove the naturally occurring minerals during purification processes, add an artificial version back into the water. Yet when minerals formulated in labs are put back in, they may not fully dissolve, so the human body can’t properly absorb them.
