Tumeric Extract (475 mg Veggie Caps)
Turmeric is a spice that is found in curry powder and other vast culinary uses. In Indian cooking it is used with other herbs such as garlic, cayenne, cumin and onions to give the mixture its distinctive flavor. Having very powerful antibacterial properties, it has been used to preserve foods before the widespread use of refrigeration.
In addition, Turmeric has been shown to have many health benefits. The active ingredient in Turmeric is Curcumin, a polyphenol, with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Because of its polyphenolic status, it has been successfully studied and used as supportive in the treatment of skin, breast and colon cancer. Cancer has been shown to start from damaged normal cells converting to cancerous cells. This damage is caused by free radicals roaming through the body seeking electrons lost in the oxidative process. Curcumin sacrifices itself by donating an electron thereby preventing the damage of a cell. Researchers at Penn State have reported that Curcumin showed potent activity blocking the proteins that are essential for the growth of breast cancer cells.
Being a polyphenol, Curcumin has very strong anti-inflammatory activity and is often used in herbal formulae for support in the pain and stiffness of arthritis.
Thousands of years ago, healers used Turmeric in the treatment of obesity and in fact remains useful today.
