Activated Alumina Cartridges
Activated Alumina Filters for Fluoride removal The activated alumina filter removes lower levels of lead, arsenic, and fluoride from your water without adding any harmful chemicals or substances to the water.
Many assume that consuming fluoride is only an issue that involves your dental health. But according to a 500-page scientific review, fluoride is an endocrine disruptor that can affect your bones, brain, thyroid gland, pineal gland and even your blood sugar levels. There have been over 34 human studies and 100 animal studies linking fluoride to brain damage, including lower IQ in children, and studies have shown that fluoride toxicity can lead to a wide variety of health problems.
Activated alumina filters can easily reduce fluoride levels from 10.0 ppm to less than 1.0 ppm. The amount of fluoride leached from the water being filtered depends on how long the water is actually touching the alumina filter media. Basically, the more alumina in the filter, the less fluoride will be in the final, filtered water. Lower-temperature water and lower-pH water (acidic water) are filtered more effectively too. The ideal pH for treatment is 5.5, which allows for up to a 95% removal rate. More:
