The Most Affordable Way to Remove Fluoride from Tap Water

The dangers of drinking water that contains high levels of fluoride are well known. Some of the known side effects of drinking water that contains fluoride are dental fluorosisreduced intelligence in children and a damaged nervous system.

Buying a water purification system that removes fluoride can get really pricey. A lot of us are stuck with dangerous fluoride in our water. The majority of people get those mini-water filters which don’t remove fluoride. But here is a secret (which a lot of people do not know about) – you can remove fluoride naturally with just one ingredient – TULSI PLANT.  It’s the most affordable way known to us!

This incredible ground breaking discovery was done by researchers from Rajasthan University. Though we do have means available to us to remove fluoride from water with fancy purification systems, not all of us can buy them. However, this natural method is not only cheap, it’s safe and effective. What researched did is they soaked 75 mg of Holy Basil leaves in 100ml of water that contained over 7.4 parts per million of fluoride. After soaking the leaves in the water for 8 hours, they discovered that the fluoride was reduced to only  1.1 parts per million. In fact, the world health organization acknowledges that the safe level of fluoride in drinking water is between 0.5 to 1 parts per million.

What’s the Tulsi Plant?

Tulsi has been used for centuries in Ayurveda medicine as one of the main medicinal plants that possesses great healing powers.  Both leaves and stems of the plant are used in medicine. The Tulsi plant is one of the most sacred, most reverent herbs in India. The Tulsi plant contains oleanolic acid, carvacol, linalool, ursolic acid, rosmarinic acid, eugenol,  and other active compounds that have been proven to exhibit unbelievable health benefits. The Tulsi plant also possesses powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also exhibits analgesic, antiseptic, aphrodisiac, antibacterial and antifungal properties. It’s used as a traditional Ayurvedic remedy for fevers, bronchitis, coughs, colds, malaria, cures rheumatism, arthritis, diabetes, relieves spasms, and even used as an insect repellant.

    Everyone should remove fluoride. My life has changed

  • Brian

    Reverse osmosis under the counter system can be bought for less than $200. Removes almost all of it – along with all the other shit.

    Is showering and bathing with unfiltered water as bad or worse than drinking it? If the answer is yes, is it better not to take a shower if one can’t afford a filter?

  • Joel W

    Can’t say if it is as bad or worse, but yes your skin will start absorbing all the lovely stuff they put in our water in about 45 sec to 1 min if I am recalling correctly.

    How about we stop fluoridation of water? That would help.

    I have 4 concerns with this article.
    First, the link to the TULSI is for tea, which seems to have different flavors with multiple ingredients.

    Second, this tea is packaged with a lining of aluminum foil.

    Third, the research is done using Holy Basil not TULSI, which seems to be a kind of tea with many different ingredients & flavors .

    Fourth, there are no instructions on how we are to remove the fluoride from our water.

    I would really appreciate some explanations, as this all seems very odd, to me.
    Thanx, to any who take their time to answer.

  • NO idea how the link for tea got in there as it wasn’t ours at all (this is a guest article) My tulsi tea is 100% holy basil leave and no tin foil.

  • Sleazy Vegetable Joe

    nice non answer from OP

  • denisebreslin

    Thank you so much for this vital info. So Holy Basil … as found in Tulsi tea (must say 100% Holy Basil). What a big help. Sharing.

  • denisebreslin

    2 Questions: Does the Tulsi Tea have to be organic? And does it come in powdered form so we can measure the necessary amt.? Thanks!

  • Stephanie Calabrese

    If you have a refrigerator that dispenses water you can buy a filter to remove the fluoride, it costs about $100.
