Researchers from Rajasthan University in India have discovered that the Tulasi plant, also known as Holy Basil, can be used to significantly reduce the amount of fluoride in drinking water.

At present, the most reliable methods used to remove excessive fluoride from drinking water are either too expensive or not suitable for the environments where they are needed most.

The method discovered by researchers from  Rajasthan University is safe, cheap and readily available, making it an ideal alternative for communities who can’t afford to use the more advance techniques of removing fluoride that are readily available in the west.

AN experiment was conducted in the Yellareddyguda village of Narketpally Mandal. The researches soaked 75mg’s of Tulasi leaves in 100ml of water that contained 7.4 parts per million of fluoride in the water.

After only soaking the Tulasi leaves for eight hours, it was discovered that the level of fluoride in the water was reduced from 7.4 parts per million, to only 1.1 parts per million.
