There are different uses for the different varieties of water. Ideally, you should only be drinking water that’s ideal for drinking, which is pure spring water. Pure spring water is the best for quenching thirst. Spring water is considered “living water,” and contains natural organisms that our bodies need. Likewise, spring water has the right pH balance, which means that it is neither too acidic nor too alkaline.

Of all water to drink, tap water is the worst. Depending on where you are, you risk drinking contaminated water, which may contain arsenic, fluoride, and aluminum, among other contaminants. When you have no choice but to drink from the tap, make sure to install some form of filter, such as a reverse osmosis filter or an ion exchange filter.

Distilled water, on the other hand, is boiled water, stripped away of water’s natural minerals. It is best used in clinical settings, such as hospitals and dental clinics. You may drink distilled water but do so only for the short term. The process of boiling makes the water acidic and may disrupt the pH balance of your body.

Alkaline water is another type of water that’s growing in popularity. There are benefits to alkaline water, particularly in detoxifying the body. However, these benefits are only short term. When drank in the long run, alkaline water can create an imbalance in our bodies. Our bodies still need to maintain a certain level of acidity that allow the efficient breakdown of food that we eat.

Another “water” product in the market to watch out for is vitamin water. This is a no-no for health watchers because it is loaded with high fructose corn syrup, among other artificial ingredients. This will do you more harm than good.
