Science Reveals That Curcumin Removes Fluoride From the Brain

November 21st, 2017

Fluoride is a mineral found in our water supply in varying amounts, depending on where you live. The mineral is often mentioned in dental health, which is said to prevent or reduce tooth decay.

Although, not everyone believes that fluoride is safe, but rather very capable of damaging the brain. Scientists from Harvard and published studies have brought up some interesting points, which could lead to some potential red flags.

Curcumin has been found to reduce the effects of neurotoxicity induced by fluoride. Other benefits include: Fighting the formation of damaging free radicals, immunity boosting and reducing swelling and inflammation.

A study by researchers from the university college of science, M.L. Sukhada Universiy, spent almost a decade investigating the ways in which fluoride induces neurodegenerative changes in the brains of mammals.

They focused for the most part on the hippocampus and cerebral cortex. In order to assess the neurotoxic effects and prove curcumin as a protectant at least on some level, these researchers randomly divided up mice into 4 different groups for thirty days. The groups being: control (no fluoride), fluoride (120 ppm), fluoride (120 ppm/3m mg/kg body weight plus curcumin), and curcumin (30 mg/kg body weight).

As expected the fluoride only treatment group showed elevated MDA levels as opposed to the non-fluoride treated control. The fluoride with curcumin group saw reduced MDA levels when compared to the fluoride only group this demonstrating the protective effects one can attain from curcumin.
