Avoiding fluoride can be tough.
It’s everywhere – literally. Two thirds of America’s tap water supply contains detrimental levels of it. That’s not to mention the amount of fluoride found in bottled water and dental treatments.
But thanks to a new study published in Pharmacognosy Magazine, even though it’s just about impossible to avoid artificial fluoride entirely, there’s a simple, natural way to reverse the brain damage caused by it.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you…
In your brain, it can interact with fluoride and protect your cells from various forms of degeneration and damage.
Researchers at the Department of Zoology at the University College of Science in India discovered these effects after studying fluoride and curcumin for more than a decade.
In their report, the team highlights the dangers of lengthy fluoride exposure, which can include an increased risk of developing several forms of cancer as well as heart disease.
And then there are the effects of fluoride on the brain.
How Fluoride Damages The Brain
Hundreds of studies have shown that fluoride, even in small amounts, is damaging to the brain.
It has been linked to everything from memory loss to behavioral problems, decreased intelligence and fetal brain impairment.
The far-reaching nature of these effects shouldn’t be much of a surprise, especially in light of a Harvard University report that explains the nature of fluoride brain damage.
It turns out that fluoride causes the following:
- Damage to the hippocampus, the region of the brain responsible for emotion and memory
- Formation of brain plaque, which leads to Alzheimer’s
- Damage to the pineal gland, which can affect sleeping patterns
The Indian study was conducted on Swiss albino mice who were divided into four groups.
One group was given no fluoride at all while the second was given fluoridated water. The third group received fluoride with curcumin and the fourth was given curcumin and no fluoride.
Researchers found that supplementation with curcumin greatly reduced the toxic effects of fluoride. How greatly? It returned the fluoride levels to near normal.
So while you might not be able to escape artificial fluoridation if you live in the U.S. or any of the other countries plagued by it, curcumin can basically reverse any effect this fluoride has on your body. How cool is that?
