Distilled,deionised and demineralised water and measuring of the purity
|Compared with other beverages deionised water has apparently a slightly acidic pH-value. |
According to the Merck Manual the human body uses buffers to balance the pH. If a person consumes something acid, the blood will produce more bicarbonate and less carbon dioxide to neutralize the acidity. Likewise the blood will produce more carbon dioxide and less bicarbonate if a alkaline substance is consumed. So drinking distilled water, will not put a human body in an acidic state.
