This might sound like unoriginal and often regurgitated advice, but drinking enough water really can make a difference to mental alertness and overall cognitive skills.

Here’s why: every time you drink water it increases the brain’s electrochemical activity. Conversely, dehydration slows electrochemical activity and effectively makes you dumber.

Therefore, staying hydrated is a scientifically valid way to keep sharp mentally.

But just as important as drinking enough is making sure you’re drinking the right sort of water.

And no, ordinary tap water won’t do the job folks. After all, tap water usually contains high levels of fluoride. Numerous studies have shown fluoride reduces IQ levels and in some cases even causes brain damage (never a good thing for those wanting to become geniuses!).

In January 2013, physician and author Dr. Joseph Mercola wrote an article for the Huffington Post titled 'Harvard Study Confirms Fluoride Reduces Children's IQ'.

“A recently-published Harvard University meta-analysis funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH),” the article states, “has concluded that children who live in areas with highly fluoridated water have "significantly lower" IQ scores than those who live in low fluoride areas.”

The Harvard study showed that Flouride causes neurotoxicity which negatively impacts learning and memory.

“There are so many scientific studies showing the direct, toxic effects of flouride on your body,” Dr. Mercola continues in the Huffington Post article, “it’s truly remarkable that it’s NOT considered a scientific consensus by now. Despite the evidence against it, fluoride is still added to 70 percent of U.S. public drinking water supplies.”

Besides fluoride there are a whole host of other contaminants usually found in tap water – such as Chlorine and lead – and none of these will do an aspiring genius’ brain any favors.

Those wishing to increase their IQ levels would be wise to only drink pure water. Filtered water (either bottled or from a home/office filtration system) is certainly better than tap water. However, contrary to what filtered water companies say their waters often contain numerous impurities – sometimes just as many as tap water.

The only pure water available on Earth is distilled water.

As American medical doctor Dr. Andrew Weil wrote on his website, distilled water is “water that has been turned into steam so its impurities are left behind. The steam is then condensed to make pure water. The process of distillation kills and removes virtually all bacteria, viruses, heavy metals, and other organic and inorganic contaminants. Once distilled, the water is as pure as water can reasonably be.”

It should be noted here that some health researchers believe distilled water can be detrimental to health if taken ongoing and long-term rather than for short periods or fasts as is more commonly recommended. This counter theory suggests that drinking water that is completely demineralized, as is distilled water, is detrimental to health in the long-run.

Dr. Weil, however, believes otherwise and states exactly why. “While it’s true that distillation removes minerals as it eliminates various other contaminants from water, I don’t feel this is a problem. We get our minerals from food, not water.

“As far as acidity goes,” Dr. Weil continues, “distilled water is close to a neutral pH and has no effect on the body’s acid/base balance. Distilled water is safe to drink, and the kind of water I use myself.”

If the aspiring genius hunts hard enough, bottled distilled water can be found in supermarkets or department stores. Otherwise, water distillers can be purchased for the home.

According to our research, distilled water is likely to have the most positive effects on the brain. However, we recommend to consult with your doctor first.
