RO As the tap water crisis continues to spread across America, many people are turning to the installation of reverse osmosis water filtration systems in their homes. Reverse osmosis promises a pure water that’s suitable for drinking, and of course the resulting water is indeed purified. However, we should look at the definition of reverse osmosis to truly understand what we are getting when we drink it. Reverse osmosis, commonly referred to as RO, is a process where water is demineralized by pushing it under pressure through a semi-permeable membrane. There’s a key word here: demineralized. One of water’s greatest benefits is hidden in the total dissolved solids that are in good quality drinking water. Minerals and electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, bicarbonate, chloride, and calcium are essential to a healthy body. Reverse osmosis removes them completely. In fact, according to a research study we mentioned last month, drinking reverse osmosis water not only resulted in the decreased intake of vital minerals, it actually increased the elimination of sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, and magnesium ions from the body. Reverse osmosis water was proven in that study to lose its taste qualities and not quench thirst like a natural mineral water would. The study also highlights the importance of calcium and magnesium and says that people who drink demineralized water may be become deficient in those minerals when their diets fail to provide the required daily intake. Drinking natural mineral water may make up for that deficiency. For about 50 years, studies in many countries all over the world have reported that water low in calcium and magnesium is associated with increased morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular disease (CVD) compared to water high in magnesium. While it’s true that drinking reverse osmosis water will remove impurities dangerous to the human body, it also removes minerals vital to the body’s health and survival. Don’t just take our word for it, read the study, do your own research, and decide for yourself.  The best drinking water is one with natural minerals and healthy electrolytes that hasn’t undergone filtration or other chemical processes to make it fit for consumption. Castle Rock Water is one of the few bottled water brands on the market that meets all of the standards for being a whole, living, healthy water that tastes great and hydrates naturally. Instead of reverse osmosis, think Castle Rock Water.  
Shasta water Clean drinking water is essential to life. In the United States, and in other western countries, we take for granted that our water is always clean and fresh. Recent news has proven otherwise, which has resulted in more people investing in at-home reverse osmosis water filtration. The claims are that reverse osmosis produces a perfectly pure drinking water, but is it as safe as people think? Reverse osmosis essentially strips water of everything, good and bad. That means that beneficial minerals in water are also removed. According to a research study published by the World Health Organization and conducted by the National Institute of Public Health in the Czech Republic, reverse osmosis water can have direct effects on the intestinal mucous membrane, metabolism, and mineral homeostasis or other body functions. Low-mineral water can also mean reduced intake of calcium and magnesium, in addition to other essential elements and microelements. Those losses can also transfer to food prepared with reverse osmosis water.  Since reverse osmosis water is stripped of all dissolved solids, it is more likely to leech chemicals from whatever it touches. That means toxic metals from pipes could potentially end up in the body.  The study concludes by saying,
Demineralised water that has not been remineralized, or low-mineral content water – in the light of the absence or substantial lack of essential minerals in it – is not considered ideal drinking water, and therefore, its regular consumption may not be providing adequate levels of some beneficial nutrients.
In future blog posts, we’ll look at the specific effects of reverse osmosis water on the body. In the meantime, people are better off drinking water that has natural minerals and beneficial elements that hasn’t been purified or treated in any way. Look for natural spring water, bottled in glass, that comes from mountain glaciers and is filtered naturally before being bottled.
