In the United States, a spring water that is microbiologically wholesome (pure, vital, live) and has efficacious minerals can be labeled as a Natural Mineral Supplement (NMS) under the FDA’s Dietary Health and Supplement Act (DSHEA). As an NMS, we leave the water in its live, whole state – packaging it without treatment of any kind. It’s rare to be able to get unprocessed, natural or wild water, because US bottled waters are required to be disinfected. Rising Springs is not a bottled water.
Rising Springs first product, our Natural Mineral Supplement (NMS), has biologically efficacious levels of natural fluoride and silica. Based on the current body of research available for fluoride, we have suggestions for use on our box as follows:
Adults and children over 11: Drink 8 oz. up to 3 times daily.
Pregnant and lactating women and children under 11: Consult your healthcare provider about your fluoride intake.
