    Does anyone have any experience with using bottled water vs filtered water, particularly regarding its effects on intestinal bacteria?

    I have a history of severe antibiotic induced candida / parasites / leaky gut.
    I use an inexpensive screw on tap filter.
    How effectively can these filter out potential gut bacteria disrupters like chlorine, chlorine compounds, or fluoride. ( can fluoride distrupt bacteria? )

    Thanks,
    Viking

    Big Berkey filter has a flouride extra filter. Gets good ratings all around. I don't know the nature of activity, but flouride is not your friend. Bacteria and metals have a 'symbiotic' relationship. Bacteria eat metals?? Need to be eliminated in tandem. Sorry, no science links to offer you.

    Inexpensive filters do not remove flouride, it is a more involved process than removing chlorine and other impurities.
