How toxins are removed from the brain.

This is not medical advice I am posting this for educational and informational purposes.

Our brain like any other organ needs to clean out toxins and waste. The glymphatic system is the brains lymphatic system and helps to clean toxins and waste from the brain. Our brain is protected and it is very difficult for things to cross the blood brain barrier. If the glymphatic system fail we can develop a leaky blood brain barrier or leaky dura this leaves us open to toxins and pathogens. It is very important to keep our glymphatic system healthy.

How it works.

It is important to get inflammation down in the blood vessels and stimulate blood vessel repair in order for the glymphatic system to function. Inflammation hinders blood flow and causes hardening of the artieries.
