Abstract [en]

Reduced mineral intake due to drinking demineralized water is not automatically corrected by one's diet. Early symptoms of low electrolyte levels include tiredness, weakness, headache, brain edema, and convulsions. Metabolic acidosis has been reported in infants whose drinks were prepared on distilled or low-mineral bottled water. õWater intoxicationö, or delirium, may occur following intense physical efforts and ingestion of several liters of low–mineral water. Minerals are also needed to prevent from corrosion and dissolution of pipe material, which can make the water unhealthy. Calcium and magnesium are also needed for protection against uptake or transportation in the body of toxic elements like e.g. lead and uranium.
