Research Finds Turmeric a Helpful Ingredient Against Heavy Metal and Mercury Poisoning


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/29/2015 -- Nowadays, people are easily exposed to a wide variety of heavy metal and environmental pollutants such as aluminum, lead, and mercury. These metals typically accumulate inside the body over time, and trigger fatal conditions such as thyroid problems, heart disease, autism, neurological conditions, dementia, birth defects and infertility. The good news is that there are ways to reduce or eliminate these substances from the body.

Research finds turmeric a helpful ingredient against heavy metal and mercury poisoning. These contaminants can be very detrimental to human health, and eliminating them can have significantly positive impacts on one's health.
