Bottled water can zap zinc levels…Hunter Worsfold
Choosing spring water over purified water could help prevent a dangerous deficiency. According to Lawrence D. Wilson, M.D., author of Nutritional Balancing and Hair Mineral Analysis, the reverse osmosis-filtering process (which is used for bottled water that are labeled “purified”) doesn’t just remove harmful pollutants from the water, it removes zinc-an essential nutrient for the body. Worse yet, reverse osmosis-filtered water actually “attaches” to the zinc that’s already in the body and flushes it out. Luckily, getting your eight glasses a day from mineralized water(like bottled spring or tap water) instead of reverse osmosis-filtered water can help ward off problems.
