Fluoride is found mainly in the
teeth - no wonder it is such a common ingredient in toothpastes.
In many parts of the world, fluoride is added to tap water.
Studies have proven that this significantly decreases tooth
decay in children, especially when fluoride is consumed before
the teeth erupt.

Fluoride is essential for healthy bone and tooth formation, as
it helps the body retain calcium. It prevents acid and plaque
formation in the mouth caused from food, especially sugar.
If the water in your area is not fluoridated, supplements are
necessary - especially for infants and children - or increased
dental cavities may result.
