Turmeric is the spice of life!! This spice that gives curry its yellow tint has been used in India for thousands of years as a medicinal herb. Recently, science has started to back up what the Indians have known for a long time… it really does contain compounds with medicinal properties! These compounds are called curcuminoids, the most important of which is CURCUMIN. Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric, has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. There are though certain specifications needed to go along with Curcumin, to have it be a potent supplement. It needs to be standardized, and because it does not absorb well into the body, it needs to be combined with Piperine, better known as black pepper extract.
Our specially formulated, organic Turmeric supplement boasts 1200 mg Turmeric and Curcumin, and 10mg Bioperine (enhancing absorption by 2000%), in 2 easy to swallow veggie capsules, 1 X per day. That’s why ROOT BOOST is the most powerful, bioavailable Turmeric supplement on the market.
PROVEN HEALTH BENEFITS OF TURMERIC with CURCUMIN
INFLAMMATION: It is now believed that chronic, low-level inflammation plays a major role in almost every chronic, Western disease. This includes heart disease, cancer, metabolic syndrome, Alzheimer’s and other various degenerative conditions. Hundreds of studies have now proven though, that curcumin is a powerful bioactive substance, fighting inflammation at the molecular level … so powerful, that it matches the effectiveness of some anti-inflammatory drugs.
OXIDATIVE STRESS: Oxidative damage is believed to be one of the mechanisms behind aging and many diseases. It involves free radicals, highly reactive molecules with unpaired electrons. Curcumin has such powerful antioxidant effects that it neutralizes free radicals on its own, then stimulates the body’s own antioxidant enzymes.
CANCER: There is exciting news concerning Turmeric (with Curcumin) vs Cancer. Researchers have been studying Curcumin as a beneficial herb in cancer treatment, and have determined that it can affect cancer growth, development and spread at the molecular level. Evidence has determined that it can reduce angiogenesis (growth of new blood vessels in tumors), metastasis (spread of cancer), as well as contributing to the death of cancerous cells. Studies are also indicating that high doses of Curcumin with Piperine, can prevent many forms of cancer including breast, lung, stomach and colon.
Macular Degeneration: The deterioration of the macula (a small area in the retina), or “Macular Degeneration”, is the leading cause of severe vision loss in people over 50, more than glaucoma & cataracts combined. Because Turmeric is the perfect combo of carotenoids (lutein, xeazanthin & beta-carotene), and since these same carotenoids are necessary for good macula health, transporting them to the deteriorating macula is essential.
