Why you'll love it
Because this ancient spice, long used in Ayurvedic medicine, may just be the most powerful herb on the planet! The benefits of Turmeric are many, but it’s real claim to fame is its ability to reduce inflammation. In fact, there are over 12,000 peer-reviewed articles currently published touting its success.
Individuals with osteoarthritis are often recommended over the counter anti-inflammatories and pain relievers as their only mechanism of pain control. However, long term use of these supplements can have some pretty negative unintended consequences on other body systems. Luckily, a number of clinical trials have shown that taking Turmeric may in fact be as effective, if not more so, at reducing osteoarthritis pain.
But Turmeric’s pain-relieving properties don’t just end with osteoarthritis. There have been numerous studies examining the benefit of Turmeric in wound healing, burn pain, post operative pain, arthritis pain, neuropathic pain, dental pain and sciatic nerve pain!
Chronic smokers should also consider Turmeric as part of their supplement regimen or quitting plan, as studies have shown that daily intake can help with the detoxification of carcinogens.
Why this formula?
How much do I really need?
This really depends on what your goals are with Turmeric. Someone looking to supplement with Turmeric for overall general health should aim to consume at least 1.4mg per pound of body weight. However, doses required to help with certain ailments are often much higher.
There have been a number of clinical studies showing positive benefit of Turmeric, however, the dosing seems to be all over the place depending on the type of supplement used due to Turmeric’s poor bioavailability. Our standard recommendation is one 500mg capsule taken twice daily with food, though if you are working with a practitioner, they may suggest higher or different dosing depending on your unique circumstance.
