Navigating the Water Quality: Understanding the Impact of Zero TDS and Alkaline Water Pitchers on Health

In the pursuit of optimal hydration, many turn to advanced water filtration systems. These include pitchers that claim to provide water with zero Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) or boast alkaline properties. While these products promise pure and healthy hydration, it's important to consider the health implications. This includes bone health and the long-term effects of water with an extremely low TDS.

The Role of TDS in Water Quality

Total Dissolved Solids encompass a variety of inorganic and organic substances, contributing to water taste and quality. Some water filtration systems, like those offered by Zero Water, aim to eliminate these dissolved solids entirely, providing what is commonly referred to as "pure" water.

The Pitfalls of Extremely Low TDS

Water with a very low TDS, such as that produced by distillation, Zero TDS water pitchers, or reverse osmosis is electron deficient. This characteristic raises concerns about water's potential to draw minerals from the body to balance. While short-term consumption might not harm bone health, long-term consumption could impact bone health.

Impact on Bone Health

The fact that electron-deficient water can leach minerals from critical areas like the femur and hip bones raises concerns about bone density and strength. Continuous mineral removal might contribute to bone weakening, especially for individuals already at risk for osteoporosis.

Mineral Intake and Balance

Although water can be a source of minerals, relying solely on low TDS water for hydration leads to mineral depletion from bones. A well-rounded diet typically provides the majority of the necessary minerals, emphasizing balanced nutrition.

For those regularly consuming zero TDS water, considering an alkaline diet rich in minerals or supplements is necessary to mitigate risks.

Exploring Alkaline Water Pitchers

Zero TDS water pitchers are filtration devices designed to produce water with a Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) reading of Zero.


To ensure the best-tasting water, it is essential to reduce total dissolved solids in your drinking water. Life Sciences™ Reverse Osmosis Alkaline Water Purifying Generator, featuring tankless technology offers innovative 5-stage water filters that remove 99.6% of total dissolved solids.

RO systems can effectively remove a wide range of contaminants, including minerals, salts, metals, and other dissolved substances that contribute to TDS.

Mineral Intake and Balance

Note: some trace minerals and elements present in TDS, like calcium and magnesium, provide health benefits. In such cases, a small amount of TDS is desired in the treated water. Although water can be a source of minerals, relying solely on low TDS water for hydration might lead to mineral depletion in bones.

As for practical filtration and purification, we suggest you install a reverse osmosis (RO) system with a post-alkaline mineral system or install a multi-filter countertop unit that removes the majority of toxic chemicals and then Creates alkalized mineral water with antioxidants. For this post-treatment remineralization techniques can be employed to reintroduce essential minerals into purified water.
