This is an article sent in by an advocate of using Curcumin!
Health specialists recommend that turmeric should be an important part of your daily diet. However, Its main active ingredient is Curcumin which has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and also it is a very strong antioxidant.
Science has now proven that turmeric is in fact a stronger, healthier option compared to Ibuprofen without any of the side effects.
However, the curcumin content of turmeric is not very high, curcumin only makes up for around 3% of the natural herb by weight. Most of the studies available use turmeric extracts that contain mostly curcumin by itself, with dosages normally exceeding 1 gram per day. It would be very difficult to reach these levels by using turmeric spice in your food.
It should also be borne in mind that most of these “Extracts” are actually man made versions of the natural Curcumin and not true extracts.
So sadly, if you want to experience the full health effects that turmeric as a herb offers, you need to take an extract that contains a significant amount of curcumin. You must also use one of the various methods to increase absorption into the body or there will be little or no health benefits.
The most successful method for maximum absorption is a new technology that uses micronisation in liquid capsule format. This increases absorption literally thousands of times more than other methods.
One important factor I have noticed is that for joint pain relief people try other types of Tumeric / Curcumin yet always come back to micronised liquid capsules as they get rid of pain and inflammation more effectively. “The proof of the pudding is in the eating” as the saying goes.
I mentioned earlier that it has been shown to be a stronger natural anti-inflammatory compound compared to Ibuprofen. How it does this, is by helping the body fight foreign invaders and also has a role in repairing the damage already done to the body. Without inflammation, pathogens like bacteria could easily take over our bodies and kill us.
There are two types of inflammation; acute (short-term) inflammation is beneficial, it can become a major problem when it is chronic (long term). Chronic, low-level inflammation is part of every major Western disease including but not limited to heart disease, arthritis, cancer, metabolic syndrome, Alzheimer’s and various degenerative conditions. Therefore, currently, anything that can fight this sort of inflammation is very important in helping to prevent and even treat these diseases.
It turns out that Curcumin within turmeric is a very STRONG anti-inflammatory. It is so, powerful that it is better than Ibuprofen without any of the side effects. So this makes it very important to consume liquid micronized Curcumin in order to help the bloodstream absorb it better.
This isn’t even the biggest health benefit of using Curcumin in your daily diet, it actually helps boost the bodies’ antioxidant capacity.
It involves free radicals, highly reactive molecules with unpaired electrons. What free radicals do is tend to react with important organic substances, such as fatty acids, proteins or even DNA. The main reason why antioxidants are so beneficial, is that they help protect our body from free radicals.
Curcumin is a very strong antioxidant that can neutralise free radicals due to its chemical structure. But it also boosts the body’s own natural antioxidant enzymes.
Micronised Liquid Capsules can dramatically increase its ability to help your body and become a vital reason to consume it in capsule form every day.
Curcumin taken as a supplement, is now regarded as a useful addition to the usual pharmaceutical and chemotherapy attacks on cancer cells. Curcumin in your body causes apoptosis, a natural process that makes cancer cells commit suicide and die.
I have personally benefited greatly from Micronised Liquid Curcumin. I Have suffered from migraines along with dreadful symptoms such as nausea, blinding headaches, dizziness and visual blind spots since my early twenties.
I am happy to report that for two years now I have not had one migraine attack since taking Micronised Liquid Curcumin on a daily basis.
To say I’m happy is an understatement.
