A WONDER HERB- TURMERIC

Turmeric grows as a root, and a bold, yellow orange colour to it. It is the primary spice used in curry and most Indian dishes. It contains a powerful antioxidant and ACTIVE ingredient called CURCUMIN. This renders turmeric one of the most studied herbal remedies in the world. According to Dr. Suanders, “ there over 12,000 peer- reviewed studies proving turmeric’s abundant benefits.

CURCUMIN has been shown to reduce blood pressure by relaxing blood vessels, dilating them, and reducing the resistance to blood flow. Piperine, the active ingredient in black pepper has the same properties. Curcumin may also prevent blood clots by reducing blood platelet aggregation.

Additionally, turmeric coupled with black seed( Kalonji) demonstrated their ability to improve all parameters of metabolic syndrome after 8 weeks in a double- blind, randomized, controlled trial. Metabollic syndrome is a medical condition of which high blood pressure is a symptom. The curcumin is also a powerful anti- inflammatory and has anti- clotting properties.

Turmeric is available as a dried root, in powder form in capsules, and as a liquid extract. For adults the recommendation is 400-600 mg of the powder 3 times daily. For the extract: 30-90 drops daily. For the dried root: 1.5 to 3 grams daily. Turmeric should not be taken if you have gall bladder disease, gallstones or kidney stones. For best results combine  curcumin with fish oil, coconut oil, or extra virgin olive oil.
