A picture of distilled water.

It's no secret that dirty water is dangerous water. In 2023 so far, there have been over 2.5 million deaths worldwide attributed to dirty water and related diseases. Different parts of the world have different standards for water purification. Just because we're in Canada doesn't mean that we aren't susceptible to dirty water.

In this post, we're going to talk about the benefits of water distillation as a purification method. Whether you're a business or a homeowner, clean water should be a priority, and having a way to distill water reduces health risks and brings peace of mind. Keep reading to learn more about the many benefits.

1. Health Benefits of Drinking Distilled Water

When you drink water, whether it's municipally treated or from a well, you'll always be consuming inorganic materials. Not all of these are harmful, but some of them are and you never want to put your body at risk of any health problems because of the water you drink.

It's proven that distilled water, in addition to preventing the ingestion of bacteria and viruses, can improve overall bodily function. It also helps prevent occurrences of kidney stones and other urologic issues.

2. Purity and Safety

Distillation involves boiling the water to turn it into steam, which is then collected and reformed back into water. During the process, those harmful chemicals and minerals are separated from the water and you're left with something extremely pure and healthy.

3. Taste and Odour Improvement

Water full of undesirable minerals, chemicals, and bacteria doesn't taste or smell very nice. Plating this kind of water can be difficult, even if it's not necessarily a risk to your health.

Because distillation strips the water of everything but only what's necessary and natural, you're going to end up with better flavour. Many describe the taste of distilled water as being more neutral and sometimes metallic, but it's consistent and free from bad smells and tastes.

4. Removal of Harmful Minerals

The most harmful minerals that are commonly found in drinking water include lead and arsenic. Lead's harmful effects have been widely seen in a number of public health crises over the years, most notably in Flint, Michigan.

When it comes to arsenic, high levels in drinking water will lead to nausea, muscle pain, and gastrointestinal issues. Distillation effectively removes these minerals, as well as other harmful ones, giving you safe drinking water.

5. Reducing Waterborne Diseases

Bacteria, viruses, and parasites often fester in poorly treated drinking water, leading to major waterborne diseases. Cholera and dysentery are just two of these diseases and the health effects of the worst diseases involve reproductive and neurological issues, among others.

Distillation, being the safest way to purify water, ensures that these diseases are kept at bay. You'll never have to worry about your health when you drink distilled water.
