If you suffer from headaches, joint pain and arthritis, back pain, obesity, digestive issues like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and even mood disorders then you also have inflammation!

Our body uses inflammation as a natural part of a healthy immune response. When we get sick or have a cut or infection, the body activates temporary inflammation to serve as a protective barrier while our body fights the injury.

However, chronic systemic inflammation is at the root of most modern health issues, including degenerative diseases of the brain and body. Long term inflammation can even cause damage to cellular DNA, creating mutant genes that lead to cancer.

So what can you do to help fight this inflammation? You definitely want to work on healing the root cause of your issue, but you can also tap into the benefits of certain herbs and supplements like turmeric to support a healthy inflammation response and promote a faster healing.

The best turmeric supplement for inflammation is going to be turmeric extract. This is because it contains a higher potency of curcumin, the active component in turmeric responsible for the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant health benefits. Curcumin is only present in raw turmeric root powder in a concentration of 3-5%. So for instance, if you ate a large bowl of curry using turmeric root powder, it may only contain 20-40 milligrams of pure curcumin.

And that’s not nearly enough! Studies shows you need a therapeutic dose of 1500 milligrams (mg) of turmeric extract with a 95% concentration of curcumin for one month to unlock the healing benefits.

If you’re wondering why turmeric is so effective at reducing inflammation, it’s because it helps by modulating those inflammatory pathways and reducing oxidative stress in the body. In fact, turmeric extract2 has been shown to help chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, atherosclerosis, diabetes, osteoarthritis, certain cancers, obesity, mood disorders, anxiety and depression and even certain autoimmune disorders like Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis.

Quality definitely matters when shopping for the best turmeric supplement for inflammation! Many turmeric brands will fill their capsules with turmeric root powder, which is much less potent than turmeric extract, and they lack transparency around the purity and potency of their product.

But not Active Atoms. Active Atoms Turmeric Extract has been a trusted brand for many chronic inflammation sufferers. Just one capsule contains 750 mg of turmeric extract at 95% curcumin concentration, which is 15 times more than many other supplement companies. It’s also the highest dose allowed in a capsule of that size, making it highly effective.

Don’t let inflammation dictate whether you have a good day or a bad day. Learn more about how you can benefit from Active Atoms Turmeric Extract today!
