Many people don’t realise the dangers of fluoride build-up.
Fluoride is a chemical found in many water supplies. In fact it is often added to water to ‘help protect teeth’.
But the dangers of long term fluoride build up in the body are thought to sometimes cause significant health problems.
Fluoride has been linked to neurological problems on many occasions and build-up can have a detrimental effect on your brain.
These studies also show how fluoride can have a worrying impact on fetal brain development.
A review by Harvard scientists published in the Lancet has also highlighted the dangers of fluoride, refuting the idea that warnings against fluoride contamination are just conjecture.
The National Research Council noted in 2006 that “It is apparent that fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain.”.
Fluoride is a heavy toxin that has similar characteristics to poisonous toxins such as lead and mercury, both of which you wouldn’t want in your blood stream.
Thankfully there is an easy step you can take to help protect yourself from a build up of fluoride, and the answer lies in a spice that has many health benefits – curcumin.
Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric, a spice which has proven health benefits that range from lowering blood pressure to preventing strokes.
And now it can boast the wonderful property of halting and even reversing fluoride in the body.
A study conducted Department of Zoology, University College of Science at M.L. Sukhadia University showed the positive effects curcumin has on the body.
Mice were tested in four groups – control (no fluoride), fluoride (120 ppm), fluoride (120 ppm/3m mg/kg body weight plus curcumin), and curcumin (30 mg/kg body weight).
The results showed that the fluoride only group demonstrated heightened MDA levels in the hippocampus and the cerebral cortex, while the group given both fluoride and curcumin showed reduced levels.
