Just about, everyone knows that Reverse Osmosis systems excel at removing water impurities, similar to distilled water they both take out the natural minerals in the water Asia and the European countries call it dead water, in I know it’s even banned, few are aware that they also remove the beneficial minerals. In fact, the reverse osmosis process removes 9299″ of beneficial calcium and magnesium. Consumers are so concerned with removing as many things from water as possible that they have forgotten to ask if the resulting water actually improves health or causes health problems. As a result, what actually was alarming is that consuming reverse osmosis water for even just a few months can create serious consequences.
The effects of most chemicals commonly found in drinking water manifest themselves after long exposure.
Among these complaints were cardiovascular disorders, tiredness, weakness or muscular cramps.
Illustrative of such ‘short term’ exposures are cases in the Czech and Slovak populations who began using reverse osmosisbased systems for final treatment of drinking water at their home taps in 2000 Within a few weeks or months various health complaints suggestive of acute magnesium deficiency were reported. Basically, this means that the minerals being consumed in food and vitamins are being urinated away. Anyways, as long as reverse osmosis water does not have enough minerals it also leaches minerals from the body, when I know it’s consumed. Whenever being excreted equals serious negative aftereffects and big health problems, Less minerals consumed plus more minerals. It gets even worse.
One popular trend since the negative consequences of consuming reverse osmosis water emerged is the practice of adding minerals back into the reverse osmosis water.
It is practically impossible to recreate natural water with all of its minerals and trace elements from reverse osmosis treated water.
In the case of borderline deficiency of a given element, even the relatively low intake of the element with drinking water may play a relevant protective role.
Since the water does not contain all of its beneficial components, On this trend, the World Health Organization states that possibly none of the commonly used ways of ‘re mineralization’ may be considered optimum. Furthermore, such losses may reach up to 60 for magnesium and calcium or even more for some other microelements. Reverse osmosis water was found to cause substantial losses of all essential elements from food, when used for cooking.
