Could there really be one herb that does it all? One herb that simultaneously works as an antioxidant, modulates inflammation, supports joint health, detoxifies the body, protects the cardiovascular system, promotes normal cell growth, supports mental clarity, regulates the bowels, balances stress hormones, supports healthy blood sugar metabolism, promotes wound healing, and even boosts serotonin production?

An incredible body of growing research suggests that yes, there is such an herb! It’s Turmeric (Curcuma longa), and with nearly three thousand years of traditional use, over two thousand published studies citing its benefits, at least a dozen clinical trials underway in the United States, and no toxicity demonstrated, it has rightfully earned the reputation as the golden wonder herb.

Some of Turmeric's Outstanding Health Benefits include:

• Powerful Antioxidant

• Anti-Inflammatory - for both accute and chronic inflammtion

• Anti-Carcinogenic - promotes normal cell growth

• Supports Joint Health

• Positive Effect on Cholesterol

• Healthy Blood Sugar Metabolism

• Helpful with Health Conditions like Heart Disease, Arthritis & Alzheimer's

If all that isn’t enough to convince you to make turmeric a part of your daily life, consider that in India and Pakistan, where the average per capita consumption of turmeric is two grams per day consumed mainly in the form of curry, the incidence of inflammatory diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and cancer, especially of the breast, prostate, and lung, is amongst the lowest in the world.

Scientists have identified several components of turmeric which are medicinally valuable. While the bulk of the published research highlights the benefits of just one of those components—curcumin, a water-soluble phytochemical that gives turmeric its signature golden hue—other phytochemicals present in the oils of turmeric, known as turmerones, are reported to be active and synergistic with curcumin. In fact, the anti-inflammatory activity of curcumin has been shown to be significantly greater when combined with turmeric oils. This means that anyone wanting to receive the full healing potential of turmeric in supplement form should use products featuring whole herb extracts rather than those containing isolated curcumin.

Supercritical extracts of turmeric are ideal. Not only are they super-pure and super-concentrated, but they deliver the full spectrum of synergistic phytochemicals present in whole herbs. For turmeric, it is as close as you can get to “curry in a capsule.”
