"Fluorides, when taken in amounts exceeding the standard therapeutic dosage, are regarded as toxic substances. Recent studies show that fluorides may affect the oxidoreductive processes of cells. The aim of the following study is to investigate the effect of antioxidative vitamins A and E and coenzyme Q on the morphological picture of the lungs and pancreata of rats exposed to high doses of sodium fluoride."
The rats were divided into 3 groups & received the following for 35 days:
- Group I received sodium fluoride and no supplements
- Group II received sodium fluoride & vitamins A and E and coenzyme Q
- Group III, the control group, received distilled water and standard fodder.
"In the case of group I, pathomorphological examinations of the lungs revealed the appearance of erythrorrhagia, hyperaemia, necrosis of epithelium cells, numerous macrophages in interalveolar septa, infiltrations in the area of blood vessels and emphysematous blebs. Focal vacuolar degeneration cells and inflammatory infiltrations appeared only in pancreata.
The results confirmed that the administration of vitamins A and E and coenzyme Q has a counteracting influence upon the degenerative changes seen in the examined organs."
The easiest way to get all of your key fluoride fighting vitamins and minerals in one shot (including A & E) is to take a high quality, gelatin & iron free multivitamin such as Bluebonnet Multi One Iron Free, 30 vegi cap
Country Life offers a very pure form of CoQ10: Country Life Coenzyme Q-10, 30 mg- 30 vegi cap
