Fluoride Removing Clay Water Filter Extracts Impurities in a Natural Way

"Brazilian terracotta clay water filters may offer the most complete protection from harmful impurities."

-Colin Ingram, Author, The Drinking Water Book

Water is one of the fundamental building blocks of life.

From the smallest creatures to the biggest ones, living organisms are composed primarily of water. Living things simply can’t function without H2O. And, the purity of the water is also of vital importance.

The human body is made up of 60% water, so obviously it’s essential that we keep our bodies supplied with fresh, clean, water purified of harmful toxins that are commonly found in drinking water.

However, it is vital to note that the method we use to purify our drinking water has a direct effect on our overall health and wellbeing.

According to the article Clean Drinking Water is Essential to Life by Karen Fifield and published by Michigan State University, unpurified water can contain diseases, metals, and even human and animal feces. Contaminated water can lead to many kinds of illnesses. As such, water purification is crucial. 

The water filtration processes used today, can traced back through history. If you go back 4,000 years, early man first purified water by boiling it. Boiling water removes many of the liquid’s impurities and contaminants. Boiling water kills microorganisms including viruses, bacteria, and protozoans that can cause diseases.

In the 5th century BC, Greek physician Hippocrates started passing boiled water through a cloth to remove sediments and silt. Known as the Hippocratic sleeve, the cloth bag proved very effective as an early method of water purification.

In the 1700s, inventor Joseph Amy was granted the first patent for a water filtration device. His device used sponge material, wool, and charcoal layers to eliminate impurities.

The first large-scale water treatment facility was built in 1804 in the country of Scotland. The filtration plant used a settling process to remove large sediments. Next, the water was forced through sand and charcoal filters to remove other impurities. The filtration plant was so successful, a second facility was built in Paris in 1806.

So, it’s clear that the concept of water purification has been around for a long time. However, which method is best for you to employ at home to ensure you are supplying your body with the building blocks it needs?

According to The Drinking Water Book: How to Eliminate Harmful Toxins from Your Water by Colin Ingram, Brazilian terracotta clay water filters may offer the most complete protection from harmful impurities.

Ceramic water filters were invented in 1827 by John Doulton and his son Henry. The Doultons were inspired to create the ceramic water filter due to the high level of contaminants in the Thames river, which was one of London’s primary water sources. Due to the Thames being a depositary for raw sewage, the water was leading to epidemics of cholera and typhoid.

Following the Doulton duo’s invention, across the pond people in South America started using Brazilian terracotta clay to make water filters.

Brazilian terracotta clay water filters use gravity and pressure to execute a triple action filtration process. First the water passes through a micro-porous ceramic candles to remove impurities. In the second stage, colloidal silver sterilizes the water, eliminating bacteria. In the third stage the water passes through granular activated carbon which reduces odors, tastes, and chlorine. Finally, the water reaches the filter system’s lower chamber where it is deemed ready for consumption.

Once water has passed through the Brazilian terracotta clay water filter, the water achieves a temperature of 5°C. This makes the water taste fresher than if it was stored at room temperature.

Brazilian terracotta clay water filters are sold in all 26 Brazilian states. Now, Uai Central brings this old-world technology to a global market.

“At Uai Central, our focus is on bringing this time-tested, proven method of water filtration to people around the world,” explains co-founder Nico Estrada. “Brazilian terracotta clay water filters are considered the most reliable method for ensuring you always have clean, fresh water that has been purified of contaminants and chemicals.”

In the U.S., the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets standards for public drinking water. The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) was passed by Congress in 1974. Amendments were added in 1986 and 1996. The EPA sets the standards for acceptable contaminant levels. The Brazilian terracotta clay water filters manufactured and distributed by Uai Central meet or exceed these safety standards.

Brazilian terracotta clay water filters offered by Uai Central are manufactured in Brazil and sold worldwide. The filters remove such harmful contaminants as chlorine, pesticides, iron, aluminum, lead, fluoride, arsenic, and parasites. This is important to note, as that many competing water filters are shown to allow impurities to pass through.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) cites a documented 60-70% reduction in diarrheal disease incidence with Brazilian terracotta clay water filtration systems.

That’s a telling statistic.

“The beauty of the Uai Central Brazilian terracotta clay water filters is that they remove impurities in a natural way, rather than by adding more chemicals to the water,” offers Estrada. “The natural filtration method is the perfect way to ensure you have clean water for maintaining your body at maximum effectiveness.”

The Mayo Clinic advises that men should be consuming 15.5 cups of water a day, and women should be consuming 11.5 cups of water a day. The key is to make sure that water is free of contaminants. The best way to do that is with a Uai Central Brazilian terracotta clay water filter.

“Water is what we’re made of. It makes sense to ensure we are supplying our bodies with the necessary clean, purified water they need each day,” summarizes Estrada. “Arming your home with a Uai Central Brazilian terracotta clay water filter is the most effective way to make sure you are getting the clean water you need.”

As with all filtration methods, Brazilian terracotta clay water filtration systems need to be cleaned and have the ceramic candles changed regularly. It is essential that hash chemicals are not used in the cleaning process, as that they can influence the effectiveness of the filtration system.
