Fluoride Toxicity Attenuated by Curcumin

In a study published in Pharmacognosy Magazine, researchers discovered that Curcumin attenuates neurotoxicity induced by fluoride. Fluoride has been debated over for years and fluoride is everywhere from pots and pans (nonstick, teflon) to antibiotics, the anti-depressant drug Prozac, drinking water, and toothpaste, making exposure rampant.

The first to use Fluoride in drinking water were the Russians and the Nazis (in their concentration camps), to chemically lobotomize the inmates. Fluoride has long been known to reduce IQ, it enhances the calcification of the pineal gland, which "speeds up" the aging process and increases insomnia. The study was authored by researchers from the Department of Zoology, University College of Science, M.L. Sukhadia University, Udaipur, India, they have spent the past decade investigating the mechanisms through which fluoride induces severe neurodegenerative changes in mammalian brains.

The researchers discovered fluoride-induced neurotoxicity via excitotoxicity (stimulating the neuron to death) and oxidative stress were the two main drivers of neurodegeneration. Those with a condition called fluorosis, a mottling of tooth enamel (excessive exposure to fluoride during tooth development), also have neurodegenerative changes caused by a form of oxidative stress known as lipid peroxidation (the fat cells going rancid, in this case in the brain). Excess lipid peroxidation causes the brain to shrink.

Due to fluorides association with neurotoxicity and neurodegeneration, the researchers discovered that the primary polyphenol in the Indian spice turmeric (called curcumin) was the perfect compound worth testing as a neuroprotective substance. Previous research on curcumin has shown that it is an antioxidant in 3 main ways. Curcumin protects against singlet oxygen, hydroxyl radicals, and superoxide radical damage. Curcumin increases the brain's levels of glutathione, a major antioxidant, and detoxifier.

Fluoride was the first inorganic ion to draw the attention of the scientific world due to its toxic effects and it is known that fluoride toxicity through drinking water is a well-recognized global problem. Negative health effects reported on fluoride exposure also include various cancers, damage to reproductive functions, cardiovascular, and neurological diseases.

Inflamagone has been a patient favorite since I first started giving out samples years ago. I have found that this remedy has been effective in some of the toughest cases of inflammation. Curcumin is the "deep yellow" ingredient in Inflamagone and I use the most potent Curcumin extract on the market today in the production of Inflamagone. When combined with Iporuru and Boswellia extract, Curcumin's effectiveness is greatly amplified. This is what you'll find it in Inflamagone.

As always, giving your body the highest quality nutrients, along with detoxification will give optimal health, naturally.
