Years ago, it was decided that the consumer needed more protection for their teeth. So Fluoride was introduced into our water system back in the 1940’s. But since then, one fluoride product after another has entered the market, exposing us to considerable increased amounts, particularly among children. Other sources include processed foods made with fluoridated water, sodas, juices, sports drinks, beers, products geared towards infants, pesticides, bottled teas, fluorinated pharmaceuticals, teflon pans, and mechanically deboned chicken. Fluoride is a common air contaminant in industrial workplaces. Taken together, the glut of fluoride sources in the modern diet has created a toxic cocktail, one that has caused a dramatic increase in a dental defect called fluorosis. Basically, we are being inundated with fluoride-which is officially a health hazard. Chronic intake of fluoride deranges the carbohydrate, lipid and antioxidant metabolism in general.
Well, there is way to combat this. This comes in a very strange looking fruit called the Tamarind. Tamarindus indica L, is a sub tropical fruit-producing tree indigenous to tropical Africa. The tamarind fruit is a long, bean-shaped fruit that encloses a stringy pulp within its casing. It can be eaten or made into a healing paste or salve in order to receive its multiple benefits. Research indicates ingesting tamarind could even help your body to detox fluoride, and subsequently helps to protect against skeletal fluorosis by enhancing excretion of fluoride. Consume Tamarind as a tea, in capsule form or by grinding up the pulp. There are also other benefits to be considered. Just a few tablespoons will improve bowel functioning and liver bile. You can lower your cholesterol and promote cardiovascular health. It can destroy intestinal worms in children and also treat jaundice. The fruit helps reduce inflammation of the skin and can be very beneficial for rashes and eruptions. Because Tamarind is loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants including phenols and naringenin, it can help treat certain forms of cancer.
