Do you know what fluoride is? Don’t worry, I thought I knew too before getting into the water filtration business. Fluoride is a mineral in your bones and teeth! Fluoride is also found in water, soil, plants, rocks, and in the air, we breathe. Fluoride is widely used in toothpaste, mouth rinses, and even in some supplements.
But being that it’s naturally in our body, there has to be benefits right? Well, your right! It slows down the breakdown of minerals in your teeth, washes out harmful bacteria from your mouth, it can even reverse tooth decay! Pretty impressive right?
But the reality is we get all these benefits in our toothpaste and mouthwashes, but is it safe for me to consume through my drinking water?
Fluoride has been known to cause arthritis, kidney disease, and even bone cancer. In fact, there is research going on right now that suggests it can even cause low IQ in our children.
Sounds pretty serious right? But it’s not all bad, fluoride is a necessary evil in our drinking water, but that doesn’t mean we need to consume it in our bodies. By installing a simple filtration system under your tap you can remove the fluoride from your water. We do this through what’s called Reverse Osmosis.
If you’re concerned about fluoride in your water, book an appointment today and get your water tested by one of our filtration specialists.
