That brings another point.  Just because the label says "Distilled" does 
NOT mean it is, when you read the fine print.  Some say made by 
distillation and ozonation.  If it's distilled, there's no reason for 
ozonation.  Look for "made by distillation" only.  Nothing I eat or 
drink ever hurts my stomach or keeps me up at night, but using bottled 
distilled that isn't "distilled" only, then I have problems sleeping and 
my gut doesn't 'feel' right anymore.
