At the beginning of this year I have tryed to mainly drink Distilled water (Purified Water) but have wondered about Penta Water - which is to be the cleanest purest water.

I have problems getting in 90 ounces a day in and sometimes don't even get in more than 45 ounces... I take spells where I get dehydrated... I was wondering if Penta would help me with maintaining hydration

Do you happen to have a special type of water that you drink... do you find that different waters really make the difference?  If you drink Penta water what benefits are you getting from it?  How much are you drinking a day of Penta?  

If I add Penta water to my daily intake I not sure I could afford more than 1 liter a day due to the cost of 2.50-3.00 a liter.

Below are the different types of water.


-------------------
Artesian Water/Artesian Well Water - Bottled water from a well that taps a confined aquifer (a water-bearing underground layer of rock or sand) in which the water level stands at some height above the top of the aquifer.

Mineral Water – Bottled water containing not less than 250 parts per million total dissolved solids may be labeled as mineral water. Mineral water is distinguished from other types of bottled water by its constant level and relative proportions of mineral and trace elements at the point of emergence from the source. No minerals can be added to this product. A bacterium that causes severe diarrhea in developing countries can survive in bottled mineral and spring water, according to a published study.

Purified Water – Water that has been produced by distillation, deionization, reverse osmosis or other suitable processes while meeting the definition of purified water in the United States. Other suitable product names for bottled water treated by one of the above processes may include “distilled water” if it is produced by distillation, “deionized water” if it is produced by deionization or “reverse osmosis water” if the process used is reverse osmosis. Alternatively, “__________ drinking water” can be used with the blank being filled in with one of the terms defined in this paragraph (e.g., “purified drinking water” or “distilled drinking water”). This is the category that Penta falls under (although Penta has created its own sub-category within this category: “ultra-purified water”).

Sparkling Bottled Water – Water that after treatment, and possible replacement with carbon dioxide, contains the same amount of carbon dioxide that it had as it emerged from the source. Sparkling bottled waters may be labeled as “sparkling drinking water,” “sparkling mineral water,” “sparkling spring water,” etc.

Spring Water – Bottled water derived from an underground formation from which water flows naturally to the surface of the earth. Spring water must be collected only at the spring or through a borehole tapping the underground formation feeding the spring. Spring water collected with the use of an external force must be from the same underground stratum as the spring and must have all the physical properties before treatment, and be of the same composition and quality as the water that flows naturally to the surface of the earth. A bacterium that causes severe diarrhea in developing countries can survive in bottled spring water, as well as mineral water, according to a recently published study.

Well Water - Bottled water from a hole bored, drilled or otherwise constructed in the ground, which taps the water aquifer.

To be honest, I drink purified tap water, as well as Gerolsteiner or Pellegrino. Seltzer or club soda makes my feet swell up.

Try to get the majority of your water from eating vegetables and fruits--it's truly the best way to stay hydrated. If your local or tap water is questionable, you might look for a filtering system.  Hope this helps

My tap water is questionable... I have city water with floride in it ... for one person not sure if it's worth the cost to put in a filteration system

add a pinch of sea salt to your water......distilled has no 'electrolytes'.....and other essentials.

I tried a case of Penta water and really could tell no difference.  Maybe I didn't drink enough of it each day.  But I couldn't afford to drink just Penta, so I drank that plus filtered water.

I use bottled spring water for my green tea each day, and drink seltzer or some other type of sparkling water the rest of the time. I'll add a little beneficial juice. During the summer, I'll add some Emergen-C lite for the electrolytes if it's really hot, and I'm perspiring a lot. Tap water here is totally disgusting.

Somewhere I read that distilled water changes the molecular structure of the water.  

I drink Artesian water.

If you have trouble drinking a lot of water try drinking it warm, it takes a little getting used to but I have no problem getting my daily 6 glasses of water. Warm is better for you too.

I would avoid drinking distilled water on a regular basis.  Its my understanding that people use it primarily when detoxing to pull minerals and things out of the body.  Apparently, because of the way its processed, it attracts and binds things in the body.  I was always told to take it seperately form any vitamins and supplements for this reason.

Has anyone else heard this?

From what I've read, the 'premier' choice seems to be water filtered by reverse osmosis.  As to weather or not that will change in the future, I can't say.  

(I've also tried Penta water, but sadly couldn't really tell a difference.  Maybe I wasn't drinking enough, but at that price.....

I invested in a counter-top carbon filter from Multi-Pure.  It removes everything toxic except flouride, and leaves the minerals.  
We don't have flouridated water, so that wasn't an issue for me.  I think Reverse Osmosis water is the one that takes the flouride out, besides distilled, and I don't think distilled is fit for human consumption (unless you are working on a temporary detox program).

After drinking several varieties of water, I currently drink reverse osmosis water and enjoy the taste.  

If I am out running errands I usually opt for a bottle of artesian water such as Fuji.

One can add a squeeze lemon to their water if a good quality grey sea salt is not added to increase the water's nutrients.

I got myself an alkaline water purifying machine 'Mavello' and drink about 2 litres of Alkaline water a day.

I like to drink hot water...I've been heating my RO filtered water to boiling and taking a thermos-full to work each day - sometimes making cups of tea throughout the day and sometimes drinking plain hot water.

Does anyone know if there are any drawbacks to this....is it healthier not to boil the water first? I use my stove to boil it; not a microwave.
Thanks!

I drink natural spring water.  I have well water where I live and I don't trust it.  We do have a disinfection system on our water which filters out the bacteria, but I still don't drink it.  I cook with it since I'm heating (usually boiling) it, shower and brush my teeth with it, but that's it.  I don't even give my pooches well water!!  They are part of the family so they get bottled water too!!

I thought that Dr. D has made a point of saying that for O's the best thing is room temperature mineral water.  I drink WF's 365 mineral water or Pellegrino or Gerolsteiner.  I also drink regular bottled water.

We are on rainfed tank water (old concrete tanks) and have an undersink filter (two diff filter thingies) for drinking/cooking water. Drank mainly bottled spring water for over a year until we linked it to digestive upsets which stopped each time we gave up that water. Damn, it tasted so good. Think too much plastic in our systems from bought water too. Love love love San Pellegrino fizzy mineral water- too expensive in Oz to have all the time.
