Turmeric 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 (an abnormally 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 turmeric by itself will not lead to the associated benefits due to its poor bioavailability, which appears to be primarily due to poor absorption, rapid metabolism and rapid elimination. Our specific blend is manufactured with the ingredient Bioperine, a patented extract that helps the body with absorption. Studies have shown that Bioperine may help with enhanced nutrient absorption, stabilize blood sugar levels, decrease inflammation and boost brain function.
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, is a micronutrient that occurs in many plants and has been shown to target multiple signaling molecules while also demonstrating activity at the cellular level, which may help benefit the following conditions:
* Inflammatory conditions
* Metabolic syndrome
* Degenerative eye conditions
* Shown to benefit kidneys
Curcuminoids have been approved by the FDA and generally recognized as safe with good tolerability; clinical studies have even shown doses of 4000 and 8000 mg per day to be safe. Remember, always consult with your physician prior to taking any supplement.
Take two tablets a day, preferably 20 to 30 minutes before a meal.
