H2O offers distilled water in 5-gallon bottles from Mountain Valley Spring Water, Callaway Blue Spring Water, and Nantze Springs Spring Water.
Distilled water is water that has been purified by boiling until it is completely vaporized, then cooled and re-condensed back into water. Chemicals that boil off at a lower temperature are collected and discarded; substances that have a higher boiling temperature are left behind by the vapor, as is the mineral content. Therefore, once the water re-condenses, it is purified. It does not have any taste.
Distilled water is free of dissolved minerals. Because of this, it can absorb and eliminate toxins from the body. However, it can also absorb and eliminate valuable minerals such as calcium and magnesium. Therefore, using distilled water as your primary drinking water for any length of time is generally discouraged, as it can lead to a significant mineral deficiency, which can cause health issues such as osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, coronary artery disease, and others. Cooking with distilled water can also leach out the vitamins and minerals in food, making them less nutritious unless you also consume the cooking liquid.
Distilled water does have many other uses. It is often used in clothing irons and steamers, as it contains no minerals to potentially stain clothes and helps extend the life of the appliance. It is also preferred for use in lead acid car and truck batteries and automotive cooling systems since it is free of ions. Distilled water is good to use in humidifiers and cigar humidors, to prevent scale buildup. It is also an excellent cleaning product, as it will not leave behind any marks. Many people like to use it to wash their face due to its lack of irritating minerals or contaminants.
