Isn't the main function of water to serve as the "universal solvent"? In 
other words, its purpose is to hold things like vitamins, minerals, and 
other things in solution. The kidneys use water to dissolve and carry 
away waste. Deionized water will be superb for functioning either way.

I have seen the argument made that deionized water will "suck" minerals 
out of your body, but I have never seen any clinical trials 
demonstrating this effect.
