Same as sodium chloride (common salt) the answer is no. DI, RO or stills are
the best way to remove or reduce ionized salts. Simple filtration will not
do a thing on it, despite all the "Britta" hype aimed at the chemically
uninformed. There is no known need to remove it, unless it is such high
concentration it causes tooth stains -- its worst side effect on living
organisms, BTW.
