Everything You Have Been Told About Water is Wrong
I am very lucky. I have the chance to speak with many wonderful customers day in, day out, who are curious about the science and technology behind our very special functional water. In speaking with these people I learn what is important to them, especially when it comes to water. Recently, I have been asked more often about drinking purified/distilled water:
"Is purified water found in nature?"
"Isn't distilled water dead water?"
"Doesn't it strip your body of MINERALS?"
Our sole purpose is to purify water and support scientific research of water - nothing else. What we write on our website and blog comes directly from first-hand research being done on Divinia (and water overall) by leading scientists in the field. It is important to us because we want to be transparent, we want to empower you with information, and we want to be the leading-edge of science and technology. It's beyond promoting a lifestyle. It's about sustaining an approach for longevity and health.
Earlier last week, I spoke to a woman who began drinking Divinia and was curious to know if it was vapor distilled. I told her that Divinia's proprietary process would fall under the category of distilled (there is no other category that would fit since it's pioneering technology), but that the implications of Divinia go beyond that. After some back and forth, she came to the conclusion that Divinia is like a better version of rain water and I like that comparison because it emphasizes a few things:
1. Distillation is a natural method of purification; just look at the hydrological cycle which is the cycle water takes on Earth - going from states of liquid, solid, and vapor. With the help of Dr. Pollack, we have learned that water has a 4th phase, which is known as a plasma; this is the phase where our water lie, per Dr. Pollack's research on Divinia Water. This 4th phase of water seems to sit just between the liquid and solid state, and has unique characteristics down the molecular level.
Distillation or vapor distillation means that we, as humans, have access to clean water without using chemicals. Given today's issues with bottled and tap water, it is refreshing to have an origin of purely hydrating water that doesn't contain chemicals, like chlorine, to kill bacteria.
2. Distilled water does not mean that it is "dead water". If you are the kind of person who loves stream water, then you will probably love rain water, too. After all, what is more alive than water from the heavens? Live water tends to evoke thoughts of "energy" or "movement" which Divinia has in spades, per the research from Dr. Pollack and Dr. Roy who measured Divinia's energy signature at 270 nm.
The biggest difference, though, is that rain water isn't as pure as it used to be. Given the rapid rates of industrialization, pollution, use of pharmaceuticals, etc. there remains no source of clean water. So, just because distilled water is devoid of solids does not mean it cannot be beneficial in hydration (more below)!
3. Our ancestors drank distilled water. Since distillation is a very natural physical process it should be no surprise that our ancestors drank distilled water for thousands of years. It wasn't always easy to find clean sources of water, even back then. Ancient Egyptian tombs revealed the society's methods of clarifying water through boiling or heating it in the sun. In fact, the oldest book in the Bible mentions distilled water as a gift from God: “For he draws up the drops of water, HE DISTILLS HIS MIST IN THE RAIN which the skies pour down, AND DROP UPON MAN ABUNDANTLY.” - Job 36: 27
Some argue that distilling and/or purifying water removes "necessary" minerals. That is partially true. Although distilled water removes all solids, you must consider how much your body actually benefits from minerals in drinking water. By calculations, water makes up less than 10% of your necessary daily minerals. Some doctors postulate that to obtain your required mineral intake, you would need to drink a bathtub's worth of mineral water. You derive more nutrients from food and supplements than you do water, and you benefit more from clean water without minerals than you do polluted water with some minerals.
