Hello,

So I know water is important and I want to buy some but what I was wondering is, does water go bad after sometime? The company I'm purchasing distilled water from will only send if I buy 200 bottles but I was wondering if they're kept stored in their plastic containers, if it would "turn bad"?

Is Oxygenated water better than distilled water? Should I get oxygenated water (it's "pumped" with "oxygen")?

if the water is stored in a warm area for more than 2 years it might develop off tastes from the plastic but it wont go "bad"

Also, if water is stored in plastic containers sitting directly on a cement floor, or near noxious chemicals, it may indeed become toxic to ingest. Best place to store is in a root cellar or cool closet at least 4" off the floor (use some bricks and a board to make a shelf).

Good luck,

Thank you Fria and Razzle for your response.

I'm confused on distilled water and how it absorbs minerals from your body and how it absorbs carbon from the air when exposed and mineral water contains sodium. I've got bladder issues so I can't have a lot of food and I'm not getting my minerals I suppose, but the potassium in mineral water, umm I'm not sure if that's okay.

I just don't know which water is best. . . Mineral, Distilled or Spring

Distilled is best for detoxing/fasting, or if you have electrolyte overload.
Mineral water is ok but you have to watch the electrolyte balance.
Spring water is probably best for general purpose use, and if you don't have kidney problems.

The above is just my humble opinion...good luck,

If you are really trying to help your body clear itself, use GLASS containers. You can buy water in  glass bottles at Whole Foods if you have one hear you.

Razzle - Thank you for your opinion. Doesn't distilled water make your body more acidic and remove all your minerals though?

What exactly is "electrolyte"?

And, Dowa, Wholefoods is a great store from what I seen and heard but I don't live in the US so I don't know these glass drinks and I know Perrier but it's sparkling water.

They are minerals, including sodium, potassium, chloride, and calcium. Electrolytes are primarily responsible for the movement of nutrients into cells and the movement of wastes out of cells.

If you want oxygenated water you can do it yourself far cheaper. You can buy food grade hydrogen peroxide yourself online and put about 16 drops in a gallon of distilled (one drop per cup). Do not use the 3% concentration pharma grade stuff you buy at the supermarket. That stuff is not approved for internal use.

Distilled water does remove minerals, which would make sense that it would make the body more acidic unless the minerals were being replaced. But some recommend using it for short-term fasting/detoxing.

Electrolytes = minerals the body uses to maintain homeostasis (blood pressure, heart rate, etc.). These minerals include sodium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, and chloride.


Take care,
