Mm, who doesn’t love a good curry? Sporting a signature golden-orange tint, Turmeric is one of the main ingredients of curry. It contains a pigment called Curcumin, which gives turmeric its colour. Turmeric is also a popular marinade when mixed with yoghurt, and is often used to tenderise meat.
However, did you know that the Turmeric isn’t just used for cooking? In fact, it has many benefits that work great as a supplement for your body too!
1. Anti-inflammatory agent
Are all those pesky aches and pains getting to you? We feel you! Turmeric Curcumin is a powerful natural anti-inflammatory agent, and is especially effective for treating conditions like osteoarthritis. It also offers respite in the form of pain relief, working wonders for joint pain and tendonitis as well.
Even better: our Turmeric Curcumin supplements are made from 100% natural ingredients, so you won’t have to worry about putting chemical substances into your body.
2. Antioxidant properties
You probably would have heard of the term ‘antioxidants’, but what exactly are they? Let’s get into the science of it: when oxygen is metabolised in the body, it results in the creation of free radicals. These free radicals are basically unstable molecules, which harm cells and DNA. The body does need some free radicals, but an overproduction leads to a negative impact on overall function — and might even cause diseases or cancers.
Now, think of antioxidants as the superheroes in this narrative. In other words, antioxidants are the warriors that look for, and neutralise, the excess free radicals. You’ll find antioxidants in foods like cranberries, cherries, tomatoes, kale, beets, and dark chocolate. Turmeric Curcumin also contain copious amounts of antioxidants!
3. Promotes digestive health
Turmeric Curcumin works hand in hand with ginger to relieve indigestion. Swell, huh! It also helps to alleviate other gastrointestinal issues, such as bloating and gas.
4. Enhances brain health
Believe it or not, Turmeric Curcumin actually helps to protect the brain from oxidative degeneration. It’s said to aid in the prevention or management of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Turmeric Curcumin boosts levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) proteins which, in turn, helps to improve memory and concentration.
5. Boosts heart health
A diagnosis of heart disease is undoubtedly devastating to receive. Sadly, it’s the leading cause of death in the world. Turmeric Curcumin, in many ways, helps with heart disease — from improving the lining of our blood vessels to reducing inflammation and oxidation. Every bit counts!
It just gets better and better: Turmeric Curcumin is also said to help with anxiety and depression, and even help to reduce the chances of cancer.
Are you sold? Our Turmeric Curcumin is made from 100% natural ingredients, ensuring nothing but the best.
Despite its benefits, Curcumin has bad bioavailability. For the uninitiated, this refers to the rate at which your body absorbs any substance into the bloodstream. To circumvent this, our Turmeric Curcumin supplements contain black pepper too. Black pepper contains piperine, which is a natural substance that increases bioavailability. How’s this for size: piperine will help to enhance the absorption of Curcumin by your body by a whopping 2000%!
Tip: Curcumin is also fat-soluble; for optimum effect, take our Turmeric Curcumin supplements with a meal that has high-fat content.
