CURCUMIN - Nature's Own Powerful Antioxidant
What is curcumin & why to use it?
Curcumin is a trendy and healthful ingredient, which has found its way to many Western peoples diet – it has plenty of positive effects for your health.
Curcumin is a naturally occurring substance in Turmeric (Curcuma longa) plant, which grows in Southeast Asia. Turmeric is a member of the ginger family and has many similar health effects and properties as ginger. Curcumin has been considered the most active component of the turmeric plant. Curcumin has a beautiful strong yellowish color and has been used for centuries as a spice but also as a traditional medicine in Asia specifically for its anti-inflammatory effects. It’s one of the main herbs used in Indian old and tradition based whole-body healing system called Ayurveda ‘The Science of Life’.
Curcumin is traditionally used for healing wounds, reducing fever, helping with digestion and improving immunity. It’s also said that it may help with cleaning your body and help with liver detoxification.
Curcumin has been studied a lot for its health benefits. It’s particularly known for its anti-inflammatory properties and we definitely recommend adding curcumin or turmeric into your healthy and varied diet. Here is a couple of reasons why to use curcumin:
- There is evidence of curcumin reducing inflammation. Proinflammatory conditions in a body are e.g. linked to tumor promotion and continuous inflammation can be harmful also for i.a. tissues, organs and other body functions. (1) Thus healthy nutrition containing sources of antioxidants is the best way to prevent and reduce inflammation.
Curcumin may help to reduce pain naturally. It’s said that it works as a natural ‘pain killer’ for joint pain and head ache. Specifically, pain reducing effects of curcumin have been studied for treating pain related to osteoarthritis. It’s a great natural option for normal pain killers, especially because it won’t be harming your stomach health. (But notice that severe pain and comprehensive treatments for osteoarthrosis & continuous head ache must always be consulted by a doctor.)
Because of the strong anti-inflammatory effects, it is said that curcumin helps to prevent many other diseases like cardiovascular disease and that it helps the body to prevent several cancers. Curcumin may also boost mental health and protect from Alzheimer. But for these properties of curcumin more scientific studies are needed.
Curcumin has been used in skin products as an anti-microbial and healing agent as it contains potent antioxidants that may be helpful for skin.
It may also help to reduce exercise-induced inflammation and muscle soreness and it can be helpful for recovery and performance in a subsequent day. It has been studied that curcumin can be helpful in the management of oxidative and inflammatory conditions, metabolic syndrome, arthritis, anxiety, and hyperlipidemia (high blood cholesterol). (2)
We added ginger and B12 into our Premium CURCUMIN:
Ginger is a close botanical relative to turmeric and has many overlapping nutrients and benefits. It has also been used for thousands of years as a traditional medicine in Asia. It also helps treating anti-inflammatory responses and may reduce muscle pain after intense exercise. It’s been said that ginger has anticancer potential. It may also help the normal function of the digestion. (3)
Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin naturally occurring e.g in beef, salmon and eggs. B12 is important for neurological health, red blood cells, nervous system, energy metabolism & fighting fatigue. It is necessary vitamin for a healthy body and has plenty of health promoting effects. For vegan it is important to consume B12 as a supplement as you can’t get it from plant based diet.
