Calcium deposition in the pineal gland leads to the formation of calcified pineal gland. This complication is often seen in adults. Children under the age of ten rarely develop calcium deposition in this gland.
This small tuber is called a spruce or pineal gland because it resembles a (poplar pine) !!
What is a pineal gland?
A small tissue inside the central part of the brain and between the cerebral hemispheres that secretes the hormone melatonin, which regulates sleep. Sometimes it is called sleep hormone and is made by this gland and enters the bloodstream. This gland is about five to eight millimeters in size in an adult human
Pineal gland tumor in children
Tumors of this gland in children can be accompanied by precocious puberty
In other words, the pineal gland has an inhibitory function on the pediatric glands, and for this reason, disorders and tumors of the pineal gland are associated with premature puberty.
Functions of the pineal gland
The functions of the pineal gland are summarized as follows:
- Improve sleep
- Improve mood
- Impression on sexual function and reproduction
Pineal gland calcification
Calcium deposition in the pineal gland occurs physiologically after puberty, which is called pineal gland calcification.
The pineal gland is said to have the highest tendency for calcium deposition among all tissues of the human body, in other words, the highest rate of calcification occurs in the pineal gland between different tissues of our body.
We said that during the normal process after adulthood, the physiological deposition of calcium occurs in the pineal gland. Natural and physiological calcification, which is part of the aging process, is safe and is not associated with any disease or disorder.
The most accurate way to check for calcium deposition in the brain and pineal gland is to use a CT scan. It should be noted that calcium deposition occurs more in the vessels of brain tissue
Calcium deposition in the pineal gland and age
Studies show that in adults less than forty-five years of age, the most uncomplicated physiological deposition of calcium occurs in the brain and pineal gland.
Also, the amount of calcium deposition naturally in the pineal gland and cerebral vessels increases with age.
In ancient history, the pineal gland was called the third eye and was thought to be the intersection of the human soul and body.
Factors causing calcium deposition in the brain
It is said that the following factors can be effective in increasing calcium deposition in the pineal gland:
- Oral use of fluoride in mouthwashes and toothpaste
- Consumption of artificial sweeteners
- Mobile phone waves
With increasing calcium deposition, melatonin production may decrease and sleep cycle disorders may occur
Prevent calcium deposition in the pineal gland
The following tips can be effective in reducing the risk of calcium deposition in the pineal gland:
- Drink Water without fluoride
- Reduce meat consumption
- Consumption of vinegar and green algae
- Do not consume products containing mercury
- Consumption of vitamin K, C and D.
The above are considered effective in reducing the calcium in the pineal gland, but all of these are hypotheses that have not yet been firmly confirmed scientifically.
