A powerful medicinal spice and a tasty vitamin-packed addition to your dishes – what exactly is it? It is the all-powerful turmeric! Not only has turmeric won the hearts of all cooking enthusiasts, but it also offers truly impressive immune support, making it a great companion on the road to recovery. But what is the power of turmeric and how to use it? Let’s take a closer look at this all-powerful spice!
What is turmeric?
Turmeric originated in South Asia and has been used for thousands of years in Chinese and Indian medicine for healing purposes. Today, however, this powerful spice is gaining popularity all over the world, and its healing properties have been scientifically proven. In addition, turmeric is a very common flavouring in a variety of Indian and Asian dishes, as well as a natural deep yellow food colouring. Turmeric is ideal in soups, sauces and stir-fries for adding both colour and a tangy flavour. You can find turmeric on store shelves both as a fresh root and ground into a powder.
What is the healing power of turmeric?
Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory and a real vitamin bomb. This orange-coloured medicinal root is packed with vitamins C, E and K, and provides powerful support for the immune system. Turmeric is also able to fight pathogens and emerge victorious, protecting the body from infection.
What makes turmeric different from curcumin?
Curcumin is an active substance in turmeric that has the power to heal the human body at the cellular level. Thanks to its extremely high antioxidant content, curcumin is able to both strengthen the immune system and inhibit the development of cancers. Curcumin is known to be particularly effective against the prostate, skin, colon, esophagus, lung, stomach and breast cancers. Turmeric itself, however, provides effective relief from respiratory ailments, supports liver function, helps regulate the menstrual cycle and prevents a number of cognitive diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease. Turmeric also provides support in cases of digestive abnormalities and helps to heal wounds.
Turmeric combined with black pepper
The piperine in black pepper is a powerful health-boosting bioactive alkaloid that, like turmeric and curcumin, helps to relieve both nausea and joint pain by acting as an anti-inflammatory. In combination with curcumin, however, piperine further increases the absorption of curcumin, making it more available to the body. Therefore, the combination of turmeric and piperine is extremely powerful and definitely worth a try.
How to take turmeric?
The most convenient way to consume turmeric is in the form of high quality capsules. Turmeric capsules are easy to take and can be dosed as needed. Turmeric capsules are helpful in case of weakened immune systems as well as for skin or digestive problems. For an even more powerful result, try turmeric capsules with black pepper.
In addition, turmeric capsules are helpful in case of:
- various types of inflammation;
- flu and colds;
- digestive problems such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS);
- liver problems (including fatty liver and hepatitis);
- inflammatory skin conditions (psoriasis and eczema);
- in the presence of autoimmune diseases such as lupus, fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis;
- diabetes and blood sugar imbalances;
- Alzheimer’s disease (turmeric has the ability to significantly alleviate symptoms and also prevent the risk of developing the disease);
- high cholesterol.
Turmeric is also a known blood purifier and has anti-ageing properties due to its antioxidant properties.
What to look out for in turmeric capsules?
Organic turmeric is the best for consumption, as it will ensure that all the valuable properties are well preserved. That’s why the turmeric capsules sold in Centralsun’s e-shop are of organic origin. The colour, on the other hand, is not a decisive factor in terms of quality and can vary depending on where the root is grown.
Who are the turmeric capsules for?
Organic turmeric capsules are for anyone who wants to boost their immune system or recover from any of the before mentioned health problems. High quality turmeric powder capsules make it easy and convenient for everyone to consume this powerful root, allowing you to dose the capsules as needed. There is no fear of unpleasant or spicy taste as with fresh turmeric. In addition, turmeric capsules do not stain fingers or clothes.
Where can I buy turmeric capsules?
