Orlando, FL — Orlando 21, 2016 - Turmeric is one of the most popular medicinal spices nowadays. It can be incorporated in one’s diet through its powdered form or consumed through supplementation. This spice is not just thought to fight a range of conditions but also toxins.
Turmeric is believed to be one of the best remedies against aluminum toxicity. Aluminum is one of the metals that is abundantly found on the surface of the earth. It has a reactive nature which makes it ideal to mix with other elements.
Aluminum toxicity takes place when high levels of aluminum are ingested or inhaled by the body. This metal cannot be accumulated in the body easily. As a matter of fact, the gastrointestinal of healthy people only absorbs 0.3 percent of aluminum, which is even eliminated by the kidneys.
The kidneys play an important role in the maintenance of human health. It takes care of eliminating 95% of aluminum from the body. Only individuals who suffer from abnormal kidney functioning are susceptible to aluminum toxicity.
Aluminum exposure can be due to various sources such as consuming food and beverages that contain high levels of aluminum. People can be exposed to aluminum in work environment, hazardous waste sites, and using aluminum cans or cookware. Exposure can also be due to usage of antiperspirants and consumption of antacids.
There are medical conditions associated with aluminum toxicity such as hemolysis, anemia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, dental caries, disturbed bowel activity, and osteomalacia. There are also other disorders such as dementia and dysfunction in the liver and kidneys.

This spice is widely believed to be a strong antioxidant and has the ability to alleviate oxidative stress. It is thought to scavenge ROS, increase antioxidant enzyme production, and inhibit lipid peroxidation.

It is believed that the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of turmeric are responsible for its neuroprotective efficacy against conditions like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. It is also believed that turmeric’s attributes could be useful in the treatment of aluminum induced neurotoxicity.
