Re: Water distiller vs reverse osmosis filter?
I prefer water distillation because it doesn't waste water and requires less filters (just a post carbon filter) usually does the trick. Reverse osmosis is supposedly excellent but wastes lots of water and requires a watchful eye on the filters to be changed more often.

Some people say that distilled water leaches minerals out of your body but I don't think it does -- according to much of what I have read -- but you can find anything to support any stance.

For the money and convenience, I vote for distilled.

I personally have never liked the taste of distilled water but I don't think I've ever had totally fresh distilled water. I hear that it supposedly tastes better when fresh.

Yes, but eat one lettuce leaf and you have the same amount of nutrient you might in some healthy creek water! And the minerals the bottling companies add are allways in-organic. You want the organic stuff. Distilled water filters your body from the in-organic stuff there's in it!

Yes, but then you're drinking water and uselessly drinking it.

I know you can make up for the nutrients elsewhere - but can you have the same catalyst to get it into your body?

There is a difference.

he's got it backwards OP. Fluoride is not removed through RO, but it is removed through distillation. We have a distiller. I prefer to add minerals to my distilled water. If a person has a buildup of minerals in their body (very common in the U.S) distilled water does have a pulling effect. So, if you fast in any way and eat a very healthy diet, I recommend distilled water with added minerals (high quality, of course)

Re: Water distiller vs reverse osmosis filter?
i use reverse osmosis, filter change once a year, water exchange 1:1,2 liter which is the best i could have found on the market. it cleans water also off of pharmaceutical residues, uranium, heavy metals and so forth. if i have enough rain water i let it run trough the osmosis system also, using it for cooking, drinking and more. haven't bought bottled water ever since then. shows constant parameter of 16 microSiemens.
