No, quite the opposite. If inorganic minerals are "removed" from tapwater, by converting it into pure distilled water, the result is remarkable biological mineral absorption for both overall health and maximal metabolic activity. The application of this query has a remarkably high correlation to the general properties of maximal absorption rates, and particularly for all micronutrients which traverse the gastric chambers directly into muscle cells for premium performance demand during strenuous activity.
