Turmeric herbal combination plus immunity support:
Grown for its root, turmeric is a bright yellow spice used throughout Asia & Eastern culture for centuries in cooking, medicine and cosmetics. It contains bioactive compounds with protective properties that aid the body against the damaging process of oxidisation - i.e. antioxidants. Turmeric and its most notable ingredient, Curcumin, has a broad range of health benefits that is beginning to pick up traction in the West.
Antioxidants can help prevent the negative effects of oxidisation which over time can lead to serious medical conditions such as heart disease, type-2 diabetes and cancer. Therefore, by increasing the intake of protective nutrients such as curcumin, the body is in a stronger position to cope with the effects of ageing and inflammation such as improving cholestrol levels and reducing the risk to the cardiovascular system.
Studies have also been conducted that show the anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric may help ease arthritis. The curcumin is proven in blocking the inflammatory molecules within the human body which in turn could help with this medical condition, inflammatory bowel disease and many others. Research is still to be undertaken in order to completely support this hypothesis however early studies have shown promise.
Turmeric also contains the ingredient, Turmerone, which in comparison to curcumin is perhaps lesser known. However, due to its ability to trigger cell repair and potentially support brain function recovery, there is growing evidence and studies that show this compound of turmeric may be beneficial for medical conditions such as Alzheimer's disease. This works through its anti-inflammation properties that help to battle the build up of protein-plaque that is characterised by Alzheimer's disease patients.
Adding to the above and turmeric's support of regular brain function, another study has also demonstrated curcumin having the same effect as anti-depressants in treating depression through boosting the brain's levels of neurotrophic factors. This will however need to be researched further before an accurate conclusion can be made.
