Turmeric: Ancient Healing

 

Turmeric is all the buzz these days and that’s because of its active ingredient, Curcumin. And it’s Curcumin that gives turmeric this gorgeous yellow-green pigment often seen in mustard and curry.  Besides giving color what’s so great about Curcumin?  There are a number of clinical studies (here) where Curcumin is being tested across a wide range of health conditions.  While a number of studies are ongoing, there are indications that Curcumin acts as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. 

Okay, so why does that matter?  Well, our immune system is a very intricate and important biological system that constantly monitors our health and repairs our bodies. Oh by the way, did I mention that 75% of our immune system resides in the gut? So there is connection between our gut and the immune system.  Well under normal, healthy circumstances our immune system responds to stress and illness by eliminating inflammation and free-radicals efficiently. However, when our body confronts extreme conditions, like stress, for prolonged periods of time, our immune system is compromised leading to chronic illness or disease manifesting chronic inflammation and cellular breakdown.

So it is under these extreme conditions that it’s best to consume (or expose our gut to) anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich foods.  Throughout my life, my diet consisted of Indian food containing Turmeric but It was when I decided to add it as a supplement that made a big difference in my health.  I’ve tried many on the market and quickly noticed that not all Turmeric supplements are equal.  Most products offer quantity versus quality.  But I found that unfair because I was determined to get better.  My Ulcerative Colitis journey led me to formulate a Turmeric product that has both quality and quantity Curcumin with absolutely no compromise to help me return to a healthy lifestyle. So I was able to formulate two products containing 95% Curcuminoids per caplet supported with  BioPerine® to aid in absorption and bioavailability. My body deserved the best so I came up with Relax, two formulations of different strengths:

  • a high-quality 500mg/caplet product for preventive care and to support a healthy digestive and immune system

  • an potent 1000mg/caplet product to support chronic inflammation and digestive issues
