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?

Adding Tumeric to your daily cooking is a good way to enjoy the spice, however, the Turmeric in your spice jar is actually quite poorly absorbed, so the amount that you would need to really notice a therapeutic effect may very well ruin your dish! Eating the whole root form regularly as part of a turmeric latte or curry dish is still a great way to reap all the phytonutrient benefits from this amazing spice, however those looking to achieve a therapeutic benefit may need supplements as well. 

When deciding which Turmeric to supplement with, It’s important to look for one that contains a large percentage of curcumin (or curcuminoids), the active component of Turmeric.  The root itself only contains about 3% curcumin, so understanding the concentration of active ingredient is a critical part of the selection process. 

You may have heard that turmeric must be combined with black pepper and beneficial fats to ensure proper absorption.  This recommendation is rooted in Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine and backed by some current scientific evidence. There have also been other attempts to increase the body’s ability to more effectively absorb the curcumin including liposomal, nanoparticle, phospholipid and structural analogue forms of curcumin, though none have demonstrated superior efficacy over one another and researchers continue to strive for the most ideal options.

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 once to  twice daily with food, though if you are working with a practitioner, they may suggest higher or different dosing depending on your unique circumstance.
