The Mineral Factor

The taste of water is essentially determined by the precise amounts of minerals it contains. Water that’s had all its minerals removed—whether by distillation, demineralization or reverse osmosis—can have a bland taste. Some doctors even advise against drinking this kind of water regularly as it can upset the body’s natural mineral balance.

Many bottled water companies that remove the naturally-occurring minerals during the purification process then add artificial minerals into the water to improve the taste. But when lab-made minerals are put back into the water, they don’t always dissolve fully and the our bodies can’t absorb them properly.
