TL;DR

Spring water seems to be best for most people’s needs. Tap water, even when purified by charcoal and reverse osmosis, is often not as pure as it should be and can be imbalanced or depleted in terms of mineral content. Nevertheless, it is more important to consume water of even modest quality than it is to substitute it for other liquids.

Spring water seems to be best for most people’s needs. Tap water, even when purified by charcoal and reverse osmosis, is often not as pure as it should be and can be imbalanced or depleted in terms of mineral content. Nevertheless, it is more important to consume water of even modest quality than it is to substitute it for other liquids.

Water should be:

  • consumed in small amounts throughout the day rather than in large glasses sporadically.
  • chlorine and fluoride free.
  • considered the first and largest part of almost all food plans.
