Where can I get products free from Sodium Fluoride (NaF) in Mauritius?
As you know, it's found in toothpaste, tap water and so on. It is a poisonous substance (used in insecticide also) which destroys brain cells and causes irreversible damage. Just want to prevent more damage.
Perhaps someone could suggest where Fluoride filters are sold? And also NaF free products.
P.S Sources (just to name a few among the thousands)
London Way has a herbal toothpaste (made by phyto shield) which is fluoride free - it is expensive, but worth the money!
Look into the Eva water filter from Axios Health Shop - apparently it removes fluoride.
I now need to see if that water filter removes pesticides, since in the standards for drinking water here in mauritius, certain amounts of pesticides, including DDT and Lindane are allowed in the water!
hope this helps!
Will definitely go there thx!
@Starr : Out of curiosity, how much more does the herbal toothpaste cost compared to a normal brand.
the herbal toothpaste does cost a lot more compared to a normal brand...but for my health it is a small price to pay :)
Wow...replying after so many months. Did Gices brush his teeth meanwhile? Lol xD
If you're concerned, then wouldn't it be easier to check the ingredients before buying any products. Manufacturers tend to put most if not all substances they used to make a product, so I believe that's your best option.
I'm inclined to believe that consuming sodium fluoride in small quantities would not be as detrimental as you make it appear. Can you back up your statement by linking to a trusted source which shows the effects of NaF on the brain cells by quantity consumed?
