Curcumin in the press
The active ingredient in Turmeric has had a lot of press lately. Consultancy firm Frost and Sullivan has researched the 'solubility (and) bio-absorption' of Curcumin.
What is bio-absorption?
Bio-absorption is when a substance is spread across cells and tissues. One way this can be achieved with Curcumin is by mixing it with Bioperine, which is black pepper. The Bioperine then supports the Curcumin to stick to cells and tissues.
We therefore combined our Organic Turmeric Extract with Bioperine to give it the best results.
The Daily Mail also included a study into Curcumin where results showed that Curcumin would support memory and 'mental health due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation has previously been linked to both dementia and severe depression'.
The author of the study Dr Gary Small concluded that Curcumin could bring 'meaningful cognitive benefits over the years.'
These are very interesting articles which shed light onto the potentials of Turmeric. If we reap it correctly that is.
The reason we state this is because many fail to see the difference between Curcumin and Turmeric.
They need to realise that raw Turmeric powder by itself is not enough because the Curcumin hasn't been concentrated nor extracted.
Therefore in caplet form Curcumin can be most supportive. In caplet form the Curcumin is concentrated.
The Turmeric dedication site turmeric for health also looked into how Curcumin an help support certain people. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties and anti oxidant aid system Curcumin can support arteries and your heart. This can be especially good for those with Atherosclerosis
Another bit of research from Turmeric.co also points out that Turmeric is low in cholesterol and sodium. It is also a good source of Vitamin C and Magnesium, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin B6, Iron, Potassium and Manganese.
These properties have allowed people to see it as an all round all natural remedy. The Guardian therefore stated that it is a 'healthy alternative to coffee'.
