Turmeric is a perennial herb of the ginger family that is extensively cultivated in India, China, Indonesia, and other tropical countries. In Ayurvedic medicine, turmeric was prescribed for treatment of many conditions, including poor vision, rheumatic pains, and coughs, and to increase milk production.

ANTIOXIDANT - The active constituent known as curcumin has been shown to protect against free radical damage to DNA. Turmeric and its derivatives have been shown to raise the body's own antioxidant systems through increasing glutathione levels.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY - Curcumin reduces inflammation by lowering histamine levels and by increasing production of natural cortisone by the adrenal glands. A preliminary trial in people with rheumatoid arthritis found curcumin to be somewhat useful for reducing inflammation and symptoms such as pain and stiffness. A separate double-blind trial found that curcumin was superior to placebo or phenylbutazone (an NSAID) for alleviating post-surgical inflammation.

LIVER PROTECTIVE - Curcumin protects the liver from a number of toxic compounds, and has been shown to be an active choleretic, increasing bile acid output by over 100%. Curcumin also aids in the excretion of cholesterol, bilirubin, and increases solubility of bile.

CARDIO-PROTECTIVE - Curcumin has been shown to reduce platelets from clumping together, which in turn improves circulation and may help protect against atherosclerosis.

DIGESTIVE TONIC - Turmeric and curcumin improve gastric integrity through increasing mucin content of the stomach, thus may protect against ulcer formation.

Dosage: One to three capsules to be taken daily.


Side Effects: Do not taking during pregnancy or whilst breast feeding.

One vegetarian capsule provides:Certified Organic Turmeric - 400mg, Vegetarian cellulose capsule.
