Fiji Water does not contain chlorine, but it does contain approximately 0.26mg of naturally occurring fluoride per liter.
According to the Glaceau website, all fluoride and chlorine is removed from Smart Water via vapor distillation.

Dam, I had a feeling that I was spelling it incorrectly. Anyway, are there any other such chemicals, I know of MSG (after some meals at Chinese resturants I almost literally feel high/relaxed like dozing off). Do you know of any of the other common chemicals involved in emotional/hormonal suppression?

Being tired after eating a meal is caused more by fatty foods, and it can happen with any food in high enough amount. A lot of your blood shunts to your intestines to absorb the calories/nutrients, the brain is not of most importance and receives less blood when your digesting a meal.
MSG, mono-sodium-glutamate if anything would be excitatory. Na+ (sodium ion) is excitatory, and glutamate is an excitatory neurotransmitter although I'm not sure how the body processes it. I have heard that it makes you feel full and thirstier, as salt would, NaCl.
