Anyone try it? Heard of it yrs ago. I eat beets & cabbage alot but I know distilled water can leech minerals out of you. Ok, just wondering if anyone has heard/tried it?


It seems good for post-workout use.

You would need to drink gallons of distilled water every day to end up with much adverse effect. All the other things you eat or drink would still provide the substances (minerals etc) the distilled water lacks.

I've never heard of it, but my husband eats a lot of cabbage and a lot of beets (doesn't drink distilled water though), and he has horrid joint pain. It's hard to believe that adding distilled water to his beets and cabbage would have much effect on joint pain.



Also, ditto to what Parnassia said about distilled water.

Not sure but but beetroot juiced is very good for you...Nutritional benefits of beets: Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium (essential for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas). Beets also contain the B vitamin folate, which helps reduce the risk of birth defects. They’re great for the liver, as they stimulate the liver’s detoxifying processes. The pigment (betacyanin) in beets is a powerful anti-cancer fighting agent and that paired with the high fiber content of beets help protect against colon cancer. They’re also rich in carotenoids, which may help boot brain functioning and stave off depression.

Eating a lot of beets is most likely contributing to your joint pain since they are rather high in simple sugars and carbs. Simple sugars and simple carbs are inflammatory which cause pain. As for cruciferous vegetables, you would get more anti-inflammatory action from broccoli, brussel sprouts and a few other dark green vegetables. Other inflammatory foods are dairy/dairy by-products, red meat, refined grains, any refined foods and drinks. Fruits and some vegetables are high in fructose and other simple sugars; eating too many means inflammation.

Anti-inflammatory foods to help with joint pain and overall health: cold water fish like salmon, sardines, trout, tuna. Try a varied, lower glycemic diet. Look up the glycemic index to help you form a good, anti-inflammatory diet with foods you like.

I avoid beet roots because it can inhibit the absorption of calcium. But I’m adding it back for high blood pressure. Same with anything with oxalic acid like spinach, rhubarb, strawberry, etc..
