Amazing Benefits of Curcumin

 

What is Curcumin?

Curcumin is a compound of the root turmeric, which is grown in India and Southeastern Asia, or there is this definition I found on Wiki.  In ground form, is the most common use of the turmeric root, as a spice in food preparation.  Though studies have shown that turmeric has many health benefits, the compound, curcumin is the meat of the health benefits.

Amazing Benefits of Curcumin

Curcumin is said to only be in about 2% of the turmeric root so if you are taking turmeric alone, you will need to take large amounts, in fact, you probably couldn’t get enough of the turmeric in your system!  Health benefits found in the root compound include control of; inflammation, pain, diabetes, arthritis, depression, and skin health, among many others.  Some studies have shown that curcumin even has an anticancer effect!

The Best Way To Get Your Curcumin Dose

The best way to get your amazing benefits of curcumin is in supplement form. There are many companies both online and off that offer curcumin, however, there are things to look for before purchasing.

First and foremost, read the label.  Your curcumin supplement should show that it has a minimum standardized to 95%, curcuminoids, Better yet, a minimum standardized 95%, Tetra-hydro-curcuminoids allows all the active curcumin to enter your bloodstream immediately.

Think of it this way, curcumin is ingested, it must be broken down, this can take a few hours when you ingest a minimum standardized to 95%, curcuminoids supplement.  However, if your supplement has a minimum standardized to 95% Tetra-hydro-curcuminoids, it has already been broken down, therefore, the active curcumin enters your system right away!

The next thing to look for is that your supplement states it is delivered via oil.  Curcumin is fat-soluble and therefore needs a fat-soluble oil to deliver it to your system for quick absorption.  Black cumin seed oil is a good choice since the black cumin seed also supports the immune system.

Finally, your supplement should contain supporting ingredients such as ginger. Ginger has many of the same benefits as curcumin since it is in the same family group as turmeric.  Ginger is an anti-inflammatory, reduces pain and supports the immune system.

Essential Oils For Rheumatoid Arthritis

 

What is Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Rheumatoid Arthritis, (RA) is an autoimmune disease.  A healthy immune systems primary job is to search out any harmful bacteria and viruses.  When an infection is present our immune system jumps into action and produces antibodies to fight it off.

When we have RA, our immune system mistakenly thinks we have an infection, and so, the antibodies attack our healthy joints.  This, in turn, causes inflammation, swelling, pain and in the long run, debilitating joint deformation as well as, problems in the circulatory and respiratory systems.

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic disease with no cure at the moment.  The treatment for RA is to slow the progression of the disease with medications, symptom relief, and lifestyle changes. A very important lifestyle change is to keep your body pH level alkaline by following an alkaline diet versus an acidic diet. The use of essential oils can help with that!

What are Essential Oils?

First off, the link below will explain the scientific definition of essential oils, much better than I ever could.  In short, essential oils are the compounds found in a plant’s leaves, stems, and roots, as well as, other parts of the plant.  The compounds give plants their smells too!  This, in turn, makes them a great choice for aromatherapy.  Essential oils have been used for 1,000’s of years in food preparation, skin care, as well as medicinally.  For example, in treating symptoms of chronic pain and inflammation.
