Four Benefits of turmeric for your oral health
Studies have shown that turmeric offers numerous benefits when used to support oral health. These are the most important ones:
- Toothaches and Oral Infections
This spice has potent anti-viral and antibacterial properties which relieve toothaches and fight oral infections.
- Gum Irritation and Gum Reddening
The strong antifungal, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties of turmeric soothe irritations and inflammation in the oral cavity.
- Decalcify Your Pineal Gland
The pineal gland is an extremely important part of the nervous system, located right in the center of the brain. Its role is to regulate various hormones and is the center for “spiritual awakening”.
Commercial products, due to the numerous chemicals they contain, damage this gland. Yet, the neuroprotective benefits and anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric optimize its function.
- Prevent Damage to the brain due to fluoride
Turmeric effectively fights the disastrous effects of fluoride, which is all around us. Fluoride is a common ingredient in toothpastes, and is found in drinking water, antibiotics, non-stick pans, and more.
Scientists have found that it is toxic to our brain and body, while the active ingredient of turmeric, curcumin, saves the brain from such damage. More than 200 peer-reviewed, published studies have confirmed that curcumin is a powerful neuroprotective agent.
