Fluoride is a naturally occurring ionic form of fluorine, the 13th most abundant element on Earth. It is found in many rocks and minerals in the soil and enters drinking water as water passes through these soils. Fluoride is present naturally in almost all foods and beverages including water, but levels can vary widely.
Helix supplements naturally-occurring fluoride in our drinking water to meet the standards established by the Division of Drinking Water (DDW). The optimal level of fluoride in our area is 0.7 milligrams per liter (mg/L) with a control range of 0.6 to 1.2 mg/L. Helix uses fluorosilicic acid, a chemical certified under American National Standards Institute (ANSI) / National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) Standard 60 and approved by the DDW.
Helix water customers currently using fluoride supplements are advised to consult their prescribing physician or dentist about taking fluoride supplements.
Parents and caregivers should consult their pediatrician, family physician, or dentist on the most appropriate water to use in their area to reconstitute infant formula. Ask your pediatrician or physician whether fluoridated water should be used in the makeup of baby formula or whether your children should be taking fluoride supplements.
