Curcumin is the active ingredient of turmeric (curcuma longa ), and gives turmeric its golden yellow colour. Science has shown curcumin to be a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, beneficial in many areas of health.
You may believe your health is just fine, but your body may be under attack from hidden inflammation that might not openly affect your well-being for decades to come.
In one sense inflammation is a good thing: if you twist your ankle, your immune system creates pain, heat and swelling to prevent you from moving it. The real problem however is the subtle inflammation. Your body releases unseen inflammation-related chemicals, triggered by toxic overload, food sensitivities and stress, which can silently damage the body over time.
Fortunately, nature provides a wealth of nutrients that support inflammation reduction. Among the most powerful is curcumin. Research suggests that curcumin has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. It is believed to lower the enzymes needed to produce inflammation. It therefore aids in the reduction of swelling and pain, and has been shown to be beneficial in cases of arthritis, back pain, menstrual cramps, and many more.
Curcumin is also a powerful antioxidant which mops up free radicals that can damage our cells, leading to disease.
Curcumin has the added benefit of helping to reduce the build-up of bad cholesterol (LDL ) in our blood vessels.
Organically grown turmeric contains more than 100 active curcuminoids plus all the essential co-factors for optimal activity and results – just as Mother Nature intended. Therefore, Nature’s Plus Source of Life Garden certified Organic Curcumin is recommended, as it does not require additional supplements for its absorbency. It is also 100 per cent vegan.
