Hi and thank you for asking us

Through the question and statement you gave on the above section, I completely understand your concern over this matter. For your information, RO water or reverse osmosis water use a process so that water passes from a more concentrated solution to a more dilute solution through a semi-permeable membrane. Reverse Osmosis have a very high effectiveness in removing protozoa, bacteria, virus, common chemical contaminants such as sodium, chloride, copper, chromium, and lead. It is safe to drink reverse osmosis water but it might not be beneficial as it may have inadequate minerals.
