Mineral Water vs Pure Water: Which One Is Better?

Mineral Water vs Pure Water: Which One Is Better?

Jessie S |

So often, we take a gulp of water on a hot day, or after a workout, and are touched with just how good it feels to have good-tasting, healthy water made available to us. Everyone is aware of the importance of water for our bodies and other creatures on earth and that water is a very crucial resource we can’t live without it. However, have you ever stopped to take a moment and tried to figure out what is actually in the water that makes it beneficial or healthy to your body? Have you ever taken the time to know which kind of water is best for the body? This article will discuss the above questions you may have about water, especially highlighting pure water and mineralized water.


Not all water is equal


Water can be sourced from a few different sources and not all of them are made equal. It is important to understand your body’s really needs and choose the most appropriate water source based on different factors. The main types of water you’re bound to come across at some point include:


  • Spring: This is water that is sourced from a spring, most likely a mountain spring,  This water is rich with nutrients, vitamins and minerals and is highly considered to be the “best” water as far as quality and its health benefits.  That’s why you see so many companies offering “spring” water (though quite a lot of it is a blend with tap water, so be careful).


  • Mineral: A close second, mineral water is also loaded with minerals and nutrients to help pack a punch when you drink it.  That being said, mineral water is going to have a distinctive taste to it due to those additives.  This is often what people comment on when bottled water “tastes different”.  These additives are considered good, however, so they are safe to drink if you can’t get access to spring water.


  • City Tap: It is the most commonly used water from our tap in-home or public facilities. Cities supplied water in the US is primarily sourced from surface water or groundwater either with or without treatment. (CDC, 2021). The quality of the water is regulated by “Safe Drinking Water Act” that reaches drinking standardbased on the EPA authority. The standard restricts the level of all kinds of chemicals and microbial contaminants that may exist in water including arsenic, chemical, lead, copper, and more. And the water is commonly considered to be safe to drink directly. However, sometimes as the government or water suppliers use chlorine and chloramine to treat and disinfect raw water, many people complain about the bad water taste due to byproducts of chlorine and chloramine.


  • Distilled: This kind of water is treated, as the name may suggest.  However, the treatment doesn’t mean that it’s infused.  Quite the opposite, in fact,  Distilled water removes the chemicals and toxins from it and leaves it, essentially, as pure as possible (earning it the name of pure water).  There is no sediment or additives.  However, this also makes it naturally very acidic.  It is often not used to drink very often because it can upset the stomach of many people.


  • Pure water (Filtered): Here comes the last kind of water mentioned in this article - the filtered pure water after treatment by water filtration systems. Normally, the reverse osmosis systems could remove 94%-99% Total dissolved Solid (TDS) which normally points to salts and impurities in water by using an extremely precise reverse osmosis membrane (0.0001 microns), serving you with water infinitely close to pure water. However, during the process, the minerals are also removed by the membrane. The filtered water thus has a similar drawback to the distilled water.

Which one is better: Mineral or pure water? 


As the water filtration industry become increasingly mature these years, there raises hot topic on whether pure water would pose a long run health risk to your body. So which one would you consider, mineral or pure water?

Actually both types of water are good for you. Mineral water is widely seen as the best option when it comes to keeping you nutrient-rich in your drinking choice. Springwater should be your first choice, of course, but if you can’t get that, mineral water is great. 

Distilled or pure water, on the other hand, is free for just about everything, leaving it flavorless and often acidic. While both have their distinct uses and needs it’s often recommended that you leave distilled water for homemade cleaners and humidifiers, amongst other things, and drink mineral water instead. However, some diets and health needs recommend pure water instead. It simply comes down to preference and needs. 

To cope with increasing and differential market needs, Frizzlife now comes with multiple water filtration solutions which could serve you pure water, mineralized RO water, and filtered tap water with minerals retained. 

Frizzlife Products


Filtered Tap Water with Minerals Retained - Under sink water filter systems


The Frizzlife under sink water filter systems such as MK99, MP99, SP99, and SK99 utilizes high-grade composite filters, mostly involves with PP filter and compounded activated carbon filter with high precision(0.5-micron, almost 10-20 times higher than other comparative products on market). Blended ion-exchange resin and other ingredients, could effectively remove and only remove the harmful contaminants, for instance, sediments, chlorine, VOCs, bad taste, odors, chloramine, heavy metals, from water while retaining beneficial minerals and salts such as calcium and magnesium in water. 


Pure Water - Reverse osmosis systems


Just like all other kinds of reverses osmosis systems, Frizzlife’s RO systems can block almost everything (99%) in water, the membrane of which only allows the fluid water to bypass. The TDS removal rate could reach at least 94%, serving you with pure water solutions. One step further, featured with high-end designs, most of the RO systems of Frizzlife are specially designed as an integrated unit with a built-in powerful pump, an integrated water cycle board, and twist-in filter cartridges. The powerful pump allows the system to produce instant pure water right from your tap after you turn on the faucet and abandons the bulky water storage tank. Without the tank, you don’t need to worry about secondary pollution of the water tank after a long time of usage. The tankless system also occupies less space under your sink, saving storage room for other purposes. 


Remineralized Pure Water - Alkaline/Remineraling RO filter


With emerging market needs for healthy water or so-called mineralized pure water, Frizzlife also comes with diverse versions of alkaline/remineralizing water solutions.

The best-sellers are PD600-TAM3 and PX500-A Alkaline and Remineralizing Tankless Reverse Osmosis Systems. Attached with a post alkaline/remineralizing filter made from 100% natural mineral balls blended in extruded carbon block, the alkaline RO water filter could first purify raw water by removing all kinds of impurities and then add in beneficial minerals into pure RO water, providing your family with unlimited optimized water solutions for the home. The water quality of the treated water even surpasses that of spring water. 

In addition, to help with the existing customers who may want the mineralized water as well, Frizzlife also launched two kinds of inline post alkaline filters, TAM3 and TD-9. They could independently attached after general RO systems including those conventional tank systems, making them to have the same function as that of alkaline RO systems.

Now you don’t need to walk a long way to town to purchase bottled water. Unlock and enjoy endless healthy water from home from today.



Everyone’s understanding of “better” is different, but it is reassuring to understand just what those differences are between your water choices and when one may be better than another -- and why.
