Bad News: Nutrametrix no longer carries our favorite shower filter

I have bad news and good news. Bad news is that Nutramerix has phased out my (our) favorite showerhead water filter because the product did not sell well enough over the years.  It is the best filter I have ever found. If people are not buying it, then the company just needs better education or better marketing for the product. Very disappointed. Oh yes, I did email the company about it. They just did a poor job of explaining how important and excellent this product is for our health!

Why is Water Filtration so Important for the Shower?

Because, simply put, chlorine, which you have in your shower water, is toxic. It is not just the water that I am concerned with but the compounds it converts into in the human body that we can inhale from the vapors while taking the shower. Chlorine is added to water to kill pathogens. I always wonder what it does to our microbiome when it lands in the intestinal tract. Also, like fluoride, chlorine is a halogen and competes with iodine, having a potential to affect your thyroid function. On a more aesthetic level, chlorine dries out skin and can be a skin irritant, especially for children.

Shower water also contains traces of many chemicals, including oral contraceptives and other medications, which is a serous new concern to the World Health Organization- the water treatment systems have not been designed to eliminate medications…

Good News: Where you Buy this Shower Water Filter Replacement from now on

Shower Water Filter Replacement | Kasia Kines - Functional MedicineFrom now on, you can get your filter replacement directly from the manufacturer. The company that makes it is called Aquasana. Here is your direct link:

The company has autoship and reward systems, so you can set your reship for every 6 months, which is how often you need to replace it. What you see in the photo is our bathroom. The filter is the white part.

Why I Like this Filter Best

This is definitely the best shower filter I have found on the market. It has a two-stage filtration system. The first stage removes the chlorine and enhances the pH balance with KDF-55D, copper-zinc natural media. The second stage uses a carbonized coconut shell medium that helps reduce chemicals, THMs (DBPs), and VOCs that you also inhale in the vapor. It also has a unique up flow design, which keeps the water pressure steady and prevents clogging. That is important- other brands I used before would cake/clog to such a degree that I had to not only replace the filter but remove the whole thing. I was not able to remove just the filter.

You can expect your skin to look better and be less dry or flaky and your hair feel smoother. It will make a noticeable difference. You will also be protecting yourself from inhaling toxic vapors.

Here are third party certifications this filter has passed, both requiring stringent testing:

UL Certified- (certified by Underwriters laboratories)

Certified by the California Department of Public Health

Nutrametrix Kitchen Water Filter

Not to worry- this product is not going to be removed from Nutrametrix.  Just in case you are worried or wondering.

Eat Well. Look Great. Feel Spectacular. Naturally!
