Mara Labs, Curcumin & Whole-Body Dentistry Interview

In this episode on Mara Labs, Dr. John Gildea and David Roberts interview Dr. Jesse Myers and discuss the medicinal properties of the bio-active polyphenol called curcumin and a wide variety of other topics including root canals, the oral microbiome, how oral health impacts Alzheimer's disease, fluoride, Dr. Myers' favorite toothpaste, and much more!

(Mara Labs is the creator of CurcElite®, one of Dr. Myers' personal favorite supplements, which is a highly bioavailable curcumin supplement that contains curcumin and Mara Labs patented carrier molecule, which increases the bioavailability of the curcumin.)
