In our last two blogs we discussed the many benefits of Garcinia Cambogia weight loss pills and NutriFlair’s Ceylon Cinnamon Supplements. This week it’s time to discuss another of our best-selling health supplements online, turmeric curcumin pills.
Turmeric pills are a highly-versatile supplement that can be used to address a number of health issues, mostly for boosting the function of the liver and digestive system.* It’s also taken by people who are hoping to reduce the number of free radicals in their body. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Let’s look into the benefits of turmeric supplements and where they come from.
What Is Turmeric?
Turmeric is a perennial plant that is in the ginger family. It is native to Asia and requires a substantial amount of water to thrive. The part of the plant that is used to make the spice turmeric is the rhizome, the “bulb” of the plant that is dried, baked, and then ground into an orange powder. Other rhizomatous plants you might be familiar with are asparagus, hops, irises, ginger, and ginger. (Not all of them are edible, though!)
How Is It Traditionally Used?
Turmeric has been used for thousands of years in Asia. At first it was used a dye because of its deep orange color, but then it became a medicine as people started discovering its benefits supporting the circulatory and digestive systems.* Since then it has been used not only as medicine but also to flavor and color food dishes in middle-eastern cuisines, curries, and Asian dishes.
Where Does The Curcuma Come In?
Curcumin is an important chemical component found in turmeric, making up a full three-percent of turmeric in its ground form. It is the most-researched of all the chemicals in turmeric and is thought to be the one that gives turmeric supplements their beneficial health properties.
And the BioPerine®?
BioPerine is a form of black pepper fruit extract that has been added for one specific reason: to improve absorption of the curcuma found in the turmeric supplement. With the addition of BioPerine, absorption is increased over 200% when compared to turmeric pills that lack the BioPerine.
Why Do People Take Curcuma Turmeric Supplements?
As we said, people have noticed the benefits of turmeric for millennia. Ayurvedic medicine, the first holistic medicine system in the world, used it as a cleansing agent for the whole body. Chinese medicine believes it helps the gallbladder, liver, and other vital parts of the digestive system.
Today, turmeric cucumin pills are used around the world as a booster of the body’s antioxidants, as well as bile production and fat digestion. It can also help support the intestines and increase the number of healthy gut bacteria. High-quality supplements can also help with joint comfort, because turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory properties.*
What Is the Right Amount to Take?
Each serving of our turmeric curcumin pills contain 1200 mg of Turmeric, aka Curcuma longa root. We believe that 1200 mg is the perfect amount in order to get the greatest benefits. Each serving also contains additional turmeric extract in order to increase the curcumanoids found in turmeric that go beyond curcuma. Finally, there are 10 mg of BioPerine in order to facilitate absorption of the curcuma.
When Should I Take Curcuma Turmeric Supplements?
Because turmeric is GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) in the United States as a food product, you may take a serving once or twice a day. The supplements can be taken with a meal or with a full glass of water.
