5 Proven Health Benefits Of Turmeric
Hi, Dr. Meredith Warner here –
All of my Well Theory products are developed with one goal in mind – helping you find safe, natural relief from pain, inflammation, stress, and more in the comfort of your own home.
Many of the issues we experience in our day-to-day lives can be effectively managed with these products.
I have made it my mission to empower myself, my family and friends, my patients and you, my community, to find better wellness and better lives with convenient, healthy and natural methods.
Turmeric is packed with beneficial compounds called curcumenoids. The primary one, curcumin, has been shown to boost brain-derived neurotrophic factor and is linked to enhanced brain function – and a lower risk of brain diseases due to neuroinflammation and/or neurodegeneration.
Neurons are capable of forming new connections, and in certain parts of the brain can also increase in number. The main driver behind this rejuvenation of the mind is brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF).
Think of BDNF as a type of growth hormone that speeds along the process of forming new neurons in your brain. It is actually a gene that encodes for the production of a protein called neurotrophic factor. This then leads to nerve growth, regeneration and restoration.
When you have decreased levels of this substance, you may experience brain diseases such as depression and enhanced risk of Alzheimer’s.
This means a simple supplement will help you to feel better, have less pain and protect your brain! Your family and friends will love that!
Oxidative stress is a silent cause of many common health concerns – and may contribute to premature aging and many “lifestyle” diseases, such as poor cardiovascular function and diabetes.
Think of wrinkles; these are external signals of oxidative stress in the body. Wrinkles are a clue as to what is happening under your skin. Oxidative stress if very bad and needs to be managed as much as possible.
But when your health lags, you may not be producing enough antioxidants to keep harmful free radicals in check – and as the free radicals in your body “search” for electrons, they can damage virtually every cell in your body.
Even healthy people have an imbalance of oxidation, oxidative stress, free radicals and antioxidants. This is because our lives are steeped in damaging foods, pollution, environmental toxins and stress.
There is simply no way to produce enough antioxidants to effectively combat the oxidative stress created by modern life.
These free radicals can negatively interact with fatty acids, proteins, and DNA within your body, wreaking havoc and causing many health issues like prolonged inflammation, restlessness, etc.
Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant that assists your body in neutralizing free radicals. In addition, it also boosts your body’s production of its own antioxidants. By taking curcumin you help your body to exist safely and with wellness in your modern life.
Heart disease is now one of the main causes of death in the world – and it is especially common in our country. There is no single cause behind heart disease – possible causes range from weight gain, to genetics, to lifestyle habits.
What we do know is that there are ways to lessen your risk – and increasing your turmeric (curcumin) intake may help to lower your risk of heart disease.
The main benefit of turmeric – and its main, active compound, curcumin – when it comes to lessening your risk of heart disease is from to its ability to improve the health of your blood vessels.
The lining of your blood vessels is called “endothelium.” It’s well known that a dysfunction in your endothelium is a major cause of heart disease. The lining of your blood vessels is what regulates your blood pressure, blood clotting, and more.
Curcumin is also highly antioxidant, which can reduce inflammation and oxidative stress in the body. These are both factors that play a role in heart disease as well.
There are many types of arthritis – most of which are caused by an increase of inflammation in the joints. Curcumin is powerfully anti-inflammatory, which makes it an excellent addition to your arthritis prevention and management routine.
In one study with people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, curcumin was more effective than an anti-inflammatory drug in relieving pain and inflammation.
If curcumin has benefits that help reduce arthritic pain, enhance brain health, and assist in preventing heart disease – then that logically makes it a powerful anti-aging supplement.
Since oxidative stress and prolonged inflammation play a role in premature aging, turmeric – and its curcumin content – provide a powerful natural defense against the ravages of aging.
It is possible to age well and to have a vital and highly functional older age – curcumin can help you do this!
Turmeric alone doesn’t contain a large amount of curcumin – but our Joint Health Multi, with a curcuminoid content of 95%, does. This multi does more than just protect your joints – it’s a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that can help boost your body’s defenses against age-related diseases.
