Dampen Inflammation & Boost Your Vitality With Curcumin
Curcumin, the main active ingredient in turmeric, is packed with compounds that fight inflammation and - at the right dose - can be as effective as ibuprofen for pain.
A traditional Ayurvedic remedy originating in India, the bright orange turmeric root has been used medicinally for thousands of years. Today it is recognized for its powerful anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-cancer properties.
As well as inflammation and pain uses, curcumin is also showing promise in clinical trials for protecting the brain from oxidative stress and supporting the production of healthy neurotransmitters. Curcumin may help individuals with depression as well as neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinsons Disease. That's big stuff!
While turmeric as a spice or a tea is an excellent addition to any kitchen, a supplement may be more effective for those looking to use it therapeutically.
Who should take a curcumin supplement?
Consider a supplement if you are looking to support:
- Cardiovascular health
- Brain health
- Blood sugar balance
- Skin conditions and anti-ageing
- Pain, arthritis and inflammation
- Exercise recovery
- Detoxification and liver support
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- Digestive balance
- Healthy cholesterol
Remember, the correct dose is necessary to get the desired benefits so make sure you invest in quality and personalize the supplement to your specific needs.
