Our Number One Choice!
We at Natural Pure Body Care advocate for drinking tap water, provided that you have a good quality purification system. Additives such as fluoride, need to be purified from your tap water. You can read more about reasons to avoid fluoride in these articles. “Kids Dental Health and Fluoride” and “Natural Holistic Dental Care – Eight Affordable Tips“. There are also many other potentially harmful contaminants in most drinking water supplies that we feel need to be removed completely or drastically reduced!
This is why we are huge fans and absolutely support great purification systems that are able to reduce and eliminate the toxins, pathogenic bacterias, viruses, heavy metals, pharmaceutical drugs, pesticides, volatile organic compounds, chlorine and of course, fluoride from your tap water!
Through research and personal experience, the purification system that comes out on top without question is the famous Berkey Water Filters.
They have a great variety of systems to fit the needs for your home. To give you an idea; I am in a household of 2 adults and two furry friends. We use purified water for drinking, dental hygiene and all of our cooking. If you have read my Bio, you will have noted that I am very passionate about food and do a lot of cooking! We use the Royal Berkey sized unit which we fill daily or sometimes one and a half times daily on occasion and find it to be perfect for our needs! The Black Berkey Filters have lasted well over a year and I have cleaned them twice as part of maintenance to be sure they are working at their optimal levels. The cleaning literally takes 15 minutes from start to finish. The Berkey Fluoride Water Filters – PF2’s we replace at around the year mark for 1,000 gallons of usage.
I would offer a suggestion from my own experience when you purchase, be sure to get the Sight Glass Spigot for your Berkey units (excluding the GO Berkey as they do not require a spigot). The Sight Glass Spigot allows you to easily see your water levels and know when adding water is necessary instead of having to check the reservoir each time! Also Berkey has come out with a Black Berkey Primer which looks like it will make priming the filters easier. I do not have a very large sink and I will definitely be getting this Primer. Please for any of you who have tried it, leave a comment at the bottom of the article with your review!
