What Is the Best Water to Drink?

When we consult with new clients, almost always, the first question is, “What is the best water to drink?” Like you, they are looking for a clear-cut, expert answer.

The truth is, we don’t have one. We could offer a bottled water comparison. Then, describe the characteristics, provide an analysis, and outline the treatment process.

But, when it comes to finding the best-bottled drinking water, it’s not as complicated a process as it seems. The only determining factor for the best-bottled drinking water is your personal preference.

The Best Tasting Water

Don’t get us wrong, we are not saying that any type of water is fine for consumption. You still want to ensure that you purchase from a reputable company. You need a quality product and an efficient delivery service. Once you find that company with the expertise, taste the water. To determine the best-tasting bottled water, it is crucial to sample and evaluate your options. Let’s examine three popular types in detail.

Bottled Water Comparison

Spring Water

Spring water comes from – you guessed it – a natural spring. This type of water contains a high amount of minerals which give it a distinctive taste. Generally, spring water is filtered several times and then treated with ozone. The lack of chlorine leaves it odor-free, crisp, and clean tasting.

Spring water comes from protected underground wells, high altitudes, or artesian aquifers. Is spring water the best water to drink? Many think so. But don’t forget to taste it before you buy it.

Purified Water

There are two main types of purified water – distilled and reverse osmosis.

  • Distilled water is treated by distillation. A method that boils the water and condenses the resulting steam.
  • Reverse osmosis is treated with an intense filtration process. The water travels through semi-permeable membranes that remove minerals and impurities.

Premium Drinking Water

Premium drinking water is a blend of spring water and purified water. You get the crisp taste of purified water, with the addition of minerals from spring water. Together, it is a happy medium and a great starting point. Plus, with reduced mineral content, you can store this type of water longer.

What is the Healthiest Water to Drink?

It’s no secret that drinking more water will improve your health. You should consult a doctor if you suffer from chronic illness, kidney stones, cancer, or need continuous medical care. The main consideration is the mineral content. For example, some cancer patients must drink distilled water. Yet, others need the minerals in spring water. Speak to your doctor about your specific health issues. Otherwise, for the lucky ones among us that don’t have these hurdles, drink up. Drink high-quality water that tastes good, and your consumption will increase.

Does Water Have Calories?

No. Water is calorie-free. When you start adding things like flavored powders – you will add calories. Try infusing your water with fruit and herbs instead.

The Best Mineral Water Brands

Mineral water is like spring water. It is sourced from natural springs. Yet, mineral water has a higher content of dissolved solids. Read this article, “ The TDS Myth” to learn more about dissolved solids. Mineral water has a measurement of 250+ TDS. For comparison, spring water has 230, and distilled has <1ppm. Mineral water is revered for its health benefits as surely all those minerals are beneficial to our bodies. But, be careful if you have any medical conditions such as kidney disease.

The best mineral water brands we have tried are San Pellegrino and Mountain Valley Spring. These are both sparkling mineral waters. They taste similar but the carbonation in San Pellegrino is lighter.

You should make an informed decision, but at the end of the day, it comes down to which water leaves you wanting more. If you don’t enjoy the taste, your consumption will go down. This can cause potential health problems that you could avoid if you drink water you enjoy.
