The Wonders of Turmeric: Ditch the Advil.

Turmeric has been used not only as a spice for food, but also medicinally for over 2500 years. And it’s no wonder. This little herb packs quite a punch.

The health benefits of turmeric are many. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory, and inflammation is linked to many diseases. We need to do everything we can to reduce inflammation. A healthy, nutrient dense, plant based diet is your best front line defense. Sometimes though, a little extra help is needed. Particularly if you already have issues with inflammation. Personally, I think preventative action is key to our long term health & wellness.

A Potent, Yet Safe Anti-Inflammatory-

Turmeric has demonstrated significant anti-inflammatory activity in a variety of experimental models. Curcumin, the primary pharmacological agent in turmeric, has been shown to be comparable to the potent drugs hydrocortisone and phenylbutazone as well as over-the-counter anti-inflammatory agents such as Motrin. Unlike the drugs, which are associated with significant toxic effects (ulcer formation, decreased white blood cell count, intestinal bleeding), curcumin produces no toxicity.

Health Benefits-

Turmeric has been used to treat a wide variety of conditions, here are just a few:

This formula combines Turmeric with Ginger to create a synergistic effect, allowing better absorption of the curcumin.
