yes, it's most common to drink only distilled water pre-contest and for drug tests to clear your system quickly :)

Can you buy distilled water in a regular supermarket? Or where can you get it?

yeah, do everything with distilled water. aside from drinking it, u wanna also brush your teeth with it, cook with it it, etc. distilled water is only necessary for the last 4-5 days before the show

how come my water says it has no sodium in it and it is not distilled, ive never seen any water that says it has sodium in it.

what if you drank distilled water all the time, would it matter?

Even in pure moutain water, there are a ton of impurities, but they don't register as even <1% RDA so that's why it doesn't say anything.

Distilled water, in theory, doesn't even have a single atom of any impurity in it. It is 100% pure H2O. It actually tastes really weird/bad because people are used to impurities.

I used to work with water purifiers, I learned alot about distilled. Distilled is supposed to be bad for you since it doesn't have the minerals. Most water you drink has soo much stuff in it that should be drank. Now for normal people thats news that should be really looked into when getting involved with distilled, but for bodybuilders or people that take multis, take in alot of vit/minerals that are lost in the water. Now you will still be less than before but you will not be short.

The impurities are in the thousands. If I were to recommend any type of water to someone I would say it would just be natural spring water or purified water of some type. Distilled isn't going to "hurt" you but you will be taking in less of certain things your body needs.

Pre-contest it would make sense because of dehydration. Which is common when you drink alot of it.
Hope I helped.

Agreed, during my cutting phase I tend to drink alot more distilled water though I have to purchase them it doesn't matter, I tend to sweat a lot more with distilled water.
