Ways to Remove Fluoride
from Water (from Anne
Helmenstine, Ph.D. biomedical sciences)
This is used to purify several types of bottled water (not all), so some
bottled waters are unfluoridated. Reverse osmosis systems are generally
unaffordable for personal use.
Alumina Defluoridation Filter
These filters are used in locales where fluorosis is prevalent. They are
relatively expensive (lowest price I saw was $30/filter) and require frequent
replacement, but do offer an option for home water filtration.
There are commercially available distillation filters that can be purchased
to remove fluoride from water. On a related note: When looking at bottled
water, keep in mind that 'distilled water' does not imply that a product
is suitable for drinking water and other undesirable impurities may be
These Do NOT Remove Fluoride
Pur, and most other filters.
Some websites about fluoride removal state otherwise, but I checked the
product descriptions on the companies' websites to confirm that fluoride
is left in the water.
This will concentrate the fluoride rather than reduce it.
Freezing water does not affect the concentration of fluoride.
Steps to Reduce Fluoride
