Why I Still Drink Dasani

Just like you, I heard that Dasani is tap water. So do you want to know why I still drink it?
  • First, it's not simply tap water. It has been filtered and purified through reserve osmosis, the same process used to obtain fresh drinkable water from seawater.
  • Second, I grew up in New York City, which has a water supply with lots of minerals that has been rated as comparable or superior in taste to top-priced bottled waters, so my tongue has been rather spoiled. And Dasani tastes good.
  • Third, I like the ingredients in Dasani: water, magnesium sulfate, potassium chloride, salt. Not only do they contribute to the flavorful taste of the product, but they contribute to human health. For example, magnesium sulfate, which is bioavailable when orally administered, has been found to reduce clogged arteries, quite a surprising benefit! (Ref. 1.) In addition, magnesium, which is woefully deficient in the American diet, is vital for heart health. (Ref. 2.)
