Turmeric, Not Just a Supplement

You’ve probably heard of Turmeric. The golden spice that has been used to treat inflammation, bacterial infections and digestive issues. This all around miracle supplement has more benefits than just making food taste great!

In turmeric, you will find Curcumin. Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric and has powerful anti-inflammatory effects. However, it is nearly impossible to achieve these benefits by only having turmeric in your foods. The curcumin level in turmeric is not THAT high. The best and most sure fire way to assure that you get all of the benefits is by supplementation!

However, it is IMPORTANT to note that not all supplements are the same!

It is very important to know that there is quality in supplements. Any over the counter supplements you find at a grocery store, pharmacy  and most surprisingly GNC, does not always contain the ingredient breakdowns that we need from the supplement. For example;

It helps to consume black pepper with turmeric. Why? Because black pepper contains Piperine, which is a natural substance that enhances the absorption of curcumin. The best curcumin supplements contain piperine. This substantially increases the effect of the supplement and increases their effectiveness. To ensure that we are consuming a supplement that has all of the benefits we expect tp be getting from this supplement, we should avoid buying over the counter supplements.

You get the best benefits from your supplements by purchasing through your healthcare provider. the supplement companies that we sell and that we TRUST are Metagenics and Designs For Health . These companies in particular test their ingredients to ensure that they are at their purest before putting it into the supplement. This is a guarantee that you will be getting the best of the best!

With Good Quality Product, The Better Results (Affects?)

Turmeric and its prime ingredient, curcumin, have a vast array of health benefits that everyone could use. One of the biggest being the role it plays in Inflammation.

Nearly every chronic disease process and acute trauma in the body is associated with inflammation. Inflammation produces mental fatigue, irritability, anxiousness, as well as the inability to heal and further states of disease. By adding foods and supplements that have anti-inflammatory properties are key to fight the inflammation we create in our bodies daily. Turmeric is a supplement you can add to your daily routine to help reduce your chances of becoming sick and unhealthy.

By properly supplementing, you may have the ability to avoid taking medications to fight these inflammatory diseases. For example, to avoid taking medications that fight your chronic inflammatory arthritis, why not take a supplement instead? Otherwise, you’re left taking medications that you see on TV that come with a long list of side affects. Why not start adding healthy supplements that can and will delay the onset and intensity of disease states? By doing so, you’re only increasing your chances of being and staying healthy!
