Heavy metals linked to Alzheimer’s - Here’s how to remove them safely
Current research shows a likely connection between the development of Alzheimer's and a heavy-metal build-up in your brain and body.
Normally, your body can filter out excessive heavy metals. However, if your organs are not working optimally, or there are too many heavy metals in your body, your brain can be negatively impacted.
Scientists found that an accumulation of heavy metals contributes to the creation of sticky proteins in the brain that cause brain damage.
The proteins clump into two kinds of plaques called amyloids and tau tangles. The same plaques and tangles are found in the brains of patients with Alzheimer’s.
Research also tells us that heavy metals increase levels of chemically-altered molecules called ROS (reactive oxygen species) in the brain. These cause serious damage to brain cells, including cell aging and death.
ROS are said to be a factor that occurs early in the development of Alzheimer’s.
ROS production rises when amyloid plaques are present in your brain.
And excessive heavy metals can create an imbalance in your gut. Compromised gut health has also been connected to decreasing brain function, depression, dementia, and Alzheimer’s.
What are heavy metals?
Your body needs naturally occurring heavy metals like zinc, iron, and copper to function properly. However, other heavy metals like lead, aluminum, or mercury are poisonous, even in small amounts.
Heavy metals can leak into your body and build up in the brain if your kidneys are not functioning properly, your immune system is compromised, or you have leaky gut.
Even if your health is good, you are still at risk if you’re constantly exposed, or you’re unknowingly ingesting or absorbing heavy metals.
There are a wide variety of ways you can ingest or be exposed to heavy metals of all types. These include:
Old dental fillings (the silver ones)
Cosmetics, lotions and fragrances
How can you detoxify your body of excess heavy metals?
“Big Pharma” is developing and testing drugs to remove excess zinc and copper, and even the amyloid plaques from the brain. Human trials show positive results — but at what cost?
Side effects of these chemically-based pharmaceuticals include renal failure, severe headaches, increased cancer risk, and life-threatening low calcium.
Luckily there are natural ways to detoxify heavy metals from your body and ensure more optimal brain function and health.
Start by examining your environment for contaminants, and removing any older, silver dental fillings. Next, find a quality source of one of nature’s best-kept secrets...
Your Secret Weapon Against Alzheimer’s: Humic and Fulvic Acids
Humic and fulvic acids are both ancient, organic substances found in the earth and in aquatic environments. They are powerful allies to nature, enabling plants to fully absorb nutrients and minerals.
These biological superstars are often referred to as “fulvics” (though fulvic acid is actually a type of humic acid).
Studies have shown many benefits to supplementing with humic and fulvic acids. [24-28] For example, as an electrolyte, fulvic and humic acids have the ability to balance and energize biological matter.
As we grow older, our own biological electric potential decreases. Studies have demonstrated that electrolytes, as conductors of electricity, have the power to restore life. [s]
Probably the most exciting thing about humic and fulvic acids is what they can do to support your body in detoxifying from heavy metals.
Here are 7 ways humic and fulvic acids, help you detox from heavy metals:
1. Combat free radical damage
Free radicals can damage cell membranes, proteins, and even DNA. By creating oxidative stress, they are linked to premature aging, dementia, and Alzheimer’s.
You ingest substances that generate free radicals through medicines, air, water, and food. Sources to limit or avoid include air pollutants, pesticides, smoke from tobacco, fried food, and alcohol.
Humic and fulvic acids are proven to protect cells from the harmful oxidation and cell breakdown that free radicals cause. They are well-known “free radical scavengers” and potent sources of SODs (superoxide dismutases), which are powerful, detoxifying enzymes.
A 2011 study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease concluded that the combined neutraceutical properties of fulvic acid can protect you from dementia and Alzheimer’s.
2. Powerful antioxidants
With so many possible sources of free radicals, it can be hard to avoid them.
Antioxidants help protect your body and brain from free radical damage and even reverse it. They rid your body of the oxidative stress that free radicals cause.
According to The Alzheimer’s Society in Great Britain, research shows that people with Alzheimer’s have brain lesions associated with the damage (oxidative stress) caused by free radicals. They also recognize that there is “substantial evidence” that oxidative damage is already present by the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease.
That’s why it’s so important you have a high intake of antioxidants.
Humic and fulvic acid possess powerful antioxidant properties that protect and can reverse free radical damage associated with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Other vital, brain-protecting antioxidants include cordyceps, bearberry (Uva ursi leaf), dandelion root, Rhodiola, Aspergillus niger, milk thistle, turmeric, ginger, and piperine.
3. Ensure optimal nutrient absorption
You can eat the best diet, and take the best supplements, but if your body is not absorbing nutrients properly, you are wasting time and money.
Fulvics help your body fully absorb nutrients. They even help determine which minerals to absorb for optimal cell balance. Due to their small molecular size, they pass through cell membranes easily. Their strong electrolyte properties also increase absorption.
4. Increase silica absorption
Silica is an essential trace mineral for metabolism, cardiovascular health, and is a necessary antioxidant. Deficiency in silica is paired with premature aging, including cognitive impairment.
Yet, silica can be hard for the body to absorb.
Fulvics dissolve silica, making it more bioavailable to your body.
This is especially significant if you consider the 2005 study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reports that silica may reduce Alzheimer’s in elderly women.
Silica binds to the heavy metal aluminum (a heavy metal directly connected to Alzheimer’s) and helps the body eliminate this harmful substance.
5. Support gut health (microbiome balance)
Science has shown a connection between brain health and gut health — including Alzheimer’s.
Humic and fulvic acid are both probiotic and prebiotic. They help put your microbiome back into balance. In this way, fulvics can help heal any immune deficiencies that originate in the gut.
In addition, they can stop or prevent gut permeability that allows heavy metals to cross into your bloodstream, rather than safely being filtered out.
6. Bind and Release Heavy Metals
Humic and fulvic acid support your kidneys in excreting toxins, including excess heavy metals. (Dandelion root, milk thistle, Rhodiola and uva ursi are great for this, too.)
Fulvics are well-known “chelators”. That means they bind to metals and minerals and transfer them to where they need to be. Inside your body, fulvics filter out harmful heavy metals while increasing the correct absorption of nutrients and minerals that your body needs.
7. Untangle amyloid and tau plaques
You’ll recall that a common feature of a brain with Alzheimer’s is the presence of plaques called amyloids and tau tangles - sticky proteins that accumulate, forming “tangles”.
Humic and fulvic acids can untangle tau and amyloid plaques in the brain. They also block their formation.
It’s clear humic and fulvic acids are a “must” if you want to prevent Alzheimer’s, and detoxify your body from harmful heavy metals. Combine these powerful nutraceuticals with other highly beneficial medicinal substances like cordyceps, dandelion root, milk thistle, Uva ursi, Rhodiola, Yucca root, and Aspergillus niger…
... And you’ve got a win-win-win for detoxifying your body from heavy metals and overall improved health.
A very important part the metal detoxifying process includes ridding the body of parasites and cleansing the colon.
Due to symptoms being so general in nature, parasitic infestations continue to go unnoticed. Millions of people are unknowingly living with these organisms that feed on the cells and blood of their hosts. Parasites steal the nutrients and supplements the body needs resulting in malaise and an unexplained lack of energy. Additionally toxic metals are found in parasites, therefore the body cannot be free of harmful metal traces without the complete removal of parasites.
At the continued expense of their hosts, parasites excrete toxins into the bloodstream after feeding and when they die.
