No, dimineralised water or distilled water is not always useful for drinking purposes. It is usually tasteless. Moreover, some ions such as Na^(+), K^(+) and Mg^(2+) etc. are essential to the body. In order to make dimineralised water more useful, some useful salts of sodium and potassium etc. must be dissolved in it.
