What is Curcumin taken for?
Turmeric has been used for thousands of years in traditional and natural medicine for a whole range of health complaints. Turmeric is one of the most studied herbs with literally hundreds of scientific papers written on it's effects. Confusingly, the active ingredients in turmeric are called Curcuminoids, the principal being called Curcumin. Curcumin is produced from the roots of the turmeric plant (Curcuma longa), and has nothing to do with the herb Cumin, produced from the seeds of the cumin plant (Cuminum cyminum).
In modern times curcumin and turmeric extract capsules have been extensively studied and found to have numerous benefits including anti-inflammatory properties, ease symptoms of arthritis and increase levels of antioxidants.Turmeric extract capsules can also contribute towards improved brain functions such as memory, decrease oxidisation of the blood and also help to alleviate the symptoms of depression.
Curcumin also contains beta-carotene, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), calcium, flavonoids, fibre, iron, niacin, potassium, zinc and other nutrients.
Why is inflammation damaging?
Did you know that cancer, heart disease, arthritis, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes, along with many others, are all classed as inflammatory diseases? Inflammation is the body's own defence to protect against disease, but a diet that includes sugar, cheap vegetable oils and refined carbohydrates stimulates this anti-inflammatory defence to protect against "unnatural foods".
Your GP may recommend eating a "balanced" diet but that may include bread from bleached, processed flour, cereals with little fibre and lots of sugar, tinned vegetables with added salt, sugar, colours and preservatives. A "balanced" diet such as this will keep your body's anti-inflammatory response running at full speed, trying to target and neutralise the inflammation-promoting foods.
Why Tumeric Root Extract and Black Pepper?
The human body finds it difficult to absorb turmeric extract alone. It is estimated that up to 80% of the active ingredient, Curcumin, can't be used by the body without the addition of black pepper extract. It is the black pepper extract that helps the absorption process of tumeric and allows you to reap the full benefits of curcumin.
