What minerals are lost during water distillation compared to tap water?

Distilled water is devoid of minerals.

Due to the enormous variation in drinking water quality, it is impossible to provide any helpful nutrient profile for "water" per se. Many city tap waters will contain less than 5 milligrams of calcium per cup, less than 2 milligrams of magnesium, and only trace amounts of other minerals. As described earlier, some high-quality mineral waters will provide over 25 milligrams of magnesium per cup, over 35 milligrams of calcium, and small amounts of more than a dozen additional minerals.

You can learn more about water from this article on our website. Can you tell me more about water and why drinking it is so important?
