  • Evian water question...help????

    Okay.....I am in Bermuda on vacation and I just went on a water hunt. I actually found Evian water ( I could never even find this at home in PA). Anyway, I was reading the label and it does contain 9% sulfate. ?????? I thought that was one of the things on the no-no list???????? I bought a bottle anyway and a few bottles of Aquafina. Just curious if sulfates are okay in Evian drinking water???????

    I know for reading the posts that most people say that Evian and Aquafina or ok, to be careful about Dasani. I only drink Distilled water now, so I can't tell you from experience, but that's what I've read most people to say. We went on a cruise to Bermuda for our 25th anniversary two years ago, and my son will be going there for his honeymoon in August. It's beautiful, enjoy your vacation!

      What about Culligan and Ozark water? I normally drink those or Aquafina. I tried to drink Evian, but I think it tastes salty? Does anyone else think that it tastes weird?

        Hi,
        I was also curious about what water was the best to drink. I know that Dasani is NOT quality water (step-dad is one of those health inspectors) and I know that distilled water is slightly acidic, about pH 5.5 as opposed to a neutral pH 7. So, is Aquafina a good choice?? How about the Brita pitchers with the filters?? I haven't even seen Evian in the stores here in a long time and the Fiji brand is so expensive!! This water issue is so confusing!!

        Thanks!!

            Kennedy,
            Is that true about Distilled water being more acidic? Because that is what my nutritionist recommended for me to drink and that's all I've been drinking for months. Maybe that is part of my pain problem and I didn't know it? Geez, I never knew I had to worry so much about which waters to drink. Does anyone else know this to be true? She told me that the distilled water has nothing in it and would be the safest to drink?

              I don't know about the ingredients on Evian water, but I do know I can't drink it!! I can't drink Dasani long either. I can drink Deer Park, Nestle Pure, or my home water which is from a spring. The only common thing with the ones I can't drink is they are heavy on minerals. Don't know why that's a problem, but there are about five brands I can't have and that's the only common link.
              Enjoy your vacation!

                I found this interesting website about all the different waters. Check it out.

                Just cut and paste it if you need to.

                  Hey Kari,
                  Yup, I am in a Science Program at the local university and we use distilled water in the lab. We did an acid/base lab a while ago and I actually tested the pH of the Distilled water which came out to be 5.5. I am not sure why, but that's what it is. I was sad too because I had also been drinking it.
                  I did notice a change when I switched off the distilled. Hope this helps.

                    Wow that is interesting about the distilles water. I was just thinking about switching to distilled because evian is soooo expensive. It is hard to belive that water can cause so many issues with IC.

                      Wow Kennedy, thanks so much for the info because I had no idea and thought by drinking the Distilled Water that I was totally safe!! It's never ending trying to figure all of this out. I have stopped drinking the distilled and will see if I notice a difference in my pain level. Thanks again

                        Wait,
                        I remember now.
                        Distilled water is theoretically supposed to "pure" (ie pH 7) but it never is. The water is distilled and all of the impurites and such are removed, yeah, but as soon as the air hits the water, the carbon dioxiode converts some of the water into a different product and makes it slightly acidic, so the water is never at pH 7, usually somewhere between pH 5.5 and 6. So, in theory, it's good, but to those who are very sensitive to the pH difference, it may be too much of a difference.

                            So are you saying that most of the other waters are at a higher PH then the distilled? I am very sensitive to everything, so are the other waters better then the distilled then because of the PH level? Just trying to understand. Thanks,

                              Haha, confusing huh??
                              I'm not really saying anything about the other waters, that one is better or not. I actually originally posted on here to find out what works well for others :o) But I think that all water has something in it, so maybe we should choose according to what we are sensitive to. Like, if you are sensitive to pH, maybe distilled isn't your best choice. Or, if a certain mineral sets off a flare for you, choose water without that specific ingredient, like maybe distilled. (All water bottles list what minerals are in it) And, I think most of us just plain avoid tap water where we live, unless you live in a state where they actually care about what's in the water.

                              I am so sorry Kari!! I didn't mean to confuse you!! I just wanted to mention that maybe a reason that you still hurt is because the water you drink is slightly acidic, that's all! :o) I didn't mean for this to be a big thing!! I hope I didn't upset you!! It could a million other reasons as well!! I was just trying to help cross one off the list. :o)
