According to a study of University of Central Lancashire, when the brains of 10 people who had had Alzheimer’s disease before their death were dissected, a common toxin was discovered from the brains of 4 people.
The toxin is LPS.
LPS exist in everybody’s body, but when LPS increases by some reason, inflammation in brain cells or others occurs and the dead brain cells cause dementia.
What is the characteristic which increases LPS and heightens the risk of dementia development?
People whose LPS has increased emit a distinctive smell from a part of the body.
That is halitosis (breath).
People whose LPS has increased emit a distinctive gas from the mouth especially when they wake up in the morning.
The distinctive smell is a putrid odor like garbage which is the odor of the gas generated when LPS has increased.
The number of normal bacteria in the mouth of a healthy person is about 200 billion and if the mouth is not cared, the number is more than one trillion. Some of the bad bacteria such as periodontal disease bacteria emit LPS.
What repels LPS?
According to a study published in Spain, when honey extract was poured into the cells inflamed by the gas generated by LPS, the inflammation was suppressed by 50 %.
The substance which is contained in honey and repels LPS is flavonoid. Flavonoid is mainly contained in plants and has strong antibacterial activity to repel virus and bacteria. There are 4000 kinds of flavonoid such as isoflavone contained in soy, catechin contained in green tea, anthocyanin contained in blueberry.
By the latest study, it has turned out that 10 and several kinds of flavonoids contained in honey are especially effective to repel LPS.
Flavonoid contained in honey lowers the activity of LPS and restores the cells suppressing the inflammation when going into the body.
However, so far the effect of flavonoid contained in honey on human has not been proved yet.
A 78 years old woman whose halitosis was strong (958 (guideline: 26)) and LPS in the blood was 0.004 EU/ml attended the verification. She was feeling that her forgetfulness had been worse lately.
She did 2things for 5 days in this experiment.
(1) Take a tablespoon of honey at night
LPS increases during sleep, so it is effective to take honey at night and a tablespoon of honey is appropriate amount because honey is rich in sugar.
(2) Brushing her teeth right after every meal to remove bad bacteria in the mouth
After 5 days trial of the above 2 things, her halitosis became 233 from 958 and LPS in the blood became 0.003 EU/ml from 0.004 EU/ml. Her memory was also improved in a test.
It is necessary to continue this for a long period of time to see more improvement.
