Back in school, we’ve learnt that about 60% of the human body is water. A simple Google search will tell you that ‘According to H.H. Mitchell, Journal of Biological Chemistry 158, the brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water. The skin contains 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79%, and even the bones are watery: 31%.’
Water is the source of all life. The question however is, is all water equally nourishing for us humans? The short answer is: no.
There are different kinds of water. There is natural mineral water, which is water in its natural form, with all its salts and minerals intact; there is purified water where some sediments, minerals and salts are removed; and then there is distilled water, which is just water, stripped bare of all its minerals and salts.
