Tumeric is a spice that has long been recognized for its medicinal properties and received interest from both the medical and scientific fields. It aids in the management of oxidative and inflammatory conditions, metabolic syndrome (abnormalities associated with cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes), arthritis, anxiety and hyperlipidemia ( a high count of fats or lipids in the blood). It may also help in the management of exercise induced inflammation and muscle soreness, thus enhancing recovery and performance in active people. It seems a low dose may have health benefits in people with no diagnosed health conditions. Most of these benefits can be attributed to its antioxidant and anti – inflammatory effects. Ingesting Curcumin by itself will not lead to the associated benefits due to it’s poor bioavailability, which appear to be primarily due to poor absorption, rapid metabolism and rapid elimination. Our specific blend is manufactured with the patented ingredient Bioperine, a patented extract that helps the body with absorption. Studies have shown that piperine may help with enhanced nutrient absorption, stabilize blood sugar levels, decrease inflammation and boost brain function.
Tumeric with curcumin has been shown to have numerous health benefits.
Take two tablets a day, preferably 20- 30 minutes before a meal.
Tumeric is a spice that has been receiving an abundance of interest for it’s medicinal attributes. Tumeric is a plant related to the ginger family. The medicinal properties of turmeric, the source of curcumin, have been know for thousands of years, however the ability to determine the exact mechanisms of action and to determine the bioactive components have only recently been investigated. Curcumin, is the main natural polyphenol found in the rhizome of curcuma longa ( turmeric).
Curcumin, a polyphenol, a micronutrient that occur in many plants has been shown to target multiple signaling molecules while also demonstrating activity in the cellular level, which help to support the benefits of curcumin:
* Inflammatory conditions
* Metabolic syndrome
* Degenerative eye conditions
* Shown to benefit kidneys
While there appear to be numerous therapeutic benefits, most are due to its antioxidant and anti – inflammatory effects. Curcumin by itself has been shown to have poor absorption. With the addition of Bioperine this issue seems to be resolved.
Curcuminoids have been approved by the FDA and generally recognized as safe and good tolerability and safety profiles have been shown by clinical studies even at doses of 4000 and 8000mg/ per day. Remember, always contact your physician prior to taking any supplement.
