To remove fluoride from water you need a special filter, the filter supplied with a Kangen machine does not remove fluoride without this additional filter.
Enagic are the manufacturers of the Kangen machine, so youíre be able to buy both original Kangen or Enagic filters as well as cheaper third-party replacements.
Additionally, a Kangen machine will not remove salt or heavy metals from tap water, for example if you where to try and filter seawater with a Kangen machine the resulting water output would still be seawater and undrinkable, a Kangen machine does not desalinate seawater.
The new range of activated alumina filters (alum filter) from Enagic are meant to be able to filter out fluoride, so if you add one of these filters to your Kangen then youíre be able to filter fluoride, but not this is not standard kit and your have to order this separately.
Only an alum filter can filter fluoride on a Kangen machine, some people might tell you that the process of making alkaline water (water ionisation) will filter out fluoride or reduce the fluoride content in water, thatís not the case, your need an alum filter to remove fluoride with your Kangen.
Minerals are also not filtered out by the Kangen, even with an alum filter, your need specific filters to filter out specific minerals, in most cases you shouldnít be filtering out minerals form your water as your body needs many minerals and salts to stay healthy.
Many people say that Adding fluoride to water (fluoridation) does more harm than good, yet water companies still add fluoride to water so I assume itís a good thing as fluoride is whatís in your toothpaste right, so itís helping your teeth, of course people will say that if the water companies automatically add fluoride to water you have no choice but to accept the fluoride unless you filter it out, and that of course is true, but itís for the greater good apparently.
A standard Kangen machine will not filter out fluoride, heavy metals or salts, your need separate filters for all those at additional cost.
Water ionisers in general will not remove fluoride unless they come with a specific alum filter, thatís the case for the Kangen machine and all other brands of water filter, the fluoride will not automatically be filtered by some special electronic process, it needs a filter.
Just to be clear Enagic do not claim that the standard Kangen water machine can filter out fluoride, there is however the grey coloured pre-filter which can filter debris and other solids.
If you have a water machine that does filer out fluoride and minerals you would need to pass the water through something called remineralisation to remove essential salts and minerals that have been removed from the water that your body needs to survive, if alkaline water is your only source of water and you have mineral removal filters this is essential, but not to worry, if you donít know if your water machine has a special filter it doesnít As these are only available at extra cost.
