Does Reverse Osmosis enhance mineral absorption rate?
This is a fact, and it is correllated to the ability of hard water to conduct electricity. Distilled Water will not conduct electricity (even when 2 parts per million inorganic minerals or less are present). Water with 5 parts inorganic content per million parts water (or more) will conduct electricity, completing a simple circuit and lighting a tester bulb. The higher the inorganic content is in a per million count, the less effectively water transmits organic minerals to tissue sites. Bottled water, tap water, and carbon-block filtered water (when tested) will conduct electricity, substantiating that these are not the best carriers for mineral-transport and mineral-absorption
( Muehling 1994)
Tap water in the USA has been shown to contain 19 “inorganic metals of concern” (1994 Safe Water Drinking Act), for which maximum contaminant levels have been set.
Most American tap water tested falls between the ranges of 350 parts per million to over 1000 parts per million total contaminants.
