INFLAMMATION IS THE ROOT CAUSE OF MOST DISEASES - TURMERIC CAN HELP!
Critics might suggest that inflammation is just a symptom in diseases, rather than a cause. But Gokhan Hotamisligil, professor of genetics and metabolism at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health says, unequivocally, “Chronic inflammation is uniformly damaging and is absolutely causal to the process because if you interfere with it you can reverse the pathology.” And this ability to control such diseases simply by reversing inflammation is a biological response, dating far back to the time of a common ancestor, that has been retained across diverse species of animals to the present day, he says, pointing to experimental evidence: “If you can make a fruit fly diabetic, and then block the inflammatory response systems, you can cure diabetes in that fruit fly, the same way you can reverse it in the mouse, in primates, and in humans, provided that you do it with the right tools. Of course, the higher the organism, the more complex these pathways are, so it takes more effort to define the precise mechanisms to manipulate.”¹

You may have heard that turmeric is loaded with health benefits. And it's true: the spice is getting a reputation as a nutrition powerhouse, potentially protecting against Alzheimer's disease, cancer, arthritis and depression. You may know turmeric best as the spice in many curry dishes, lending warm and peppery notes and golden color. Although it has been around for thousands of years, turmeric has recently surged in popularity and might just be one of the hottest nutrition trends-you can now find turmeric teas, golden milk, turmeric shots and more. Here's what you need to know about turmeric's health benefits and how to use it.

Many studies have been done on the healing properties of curcumin — the active compound in turmeric-in regard to diseases like cancer, Alzheimer's, arthritis and depression. Most of the research has turned up positive results, but many studies have looked at the effects of supplemental curcumin (extracted from turmeric), rather than consuming turmeric with foods. Also, turmeric is not well absorbed by the body, and much of the research has been performed in the lab or in animals, rendering some results more conclusive than others. That said, here's what the latest on the health benefits of turmeric.
The main cause of arthritis is still unknown, but many experts suspect it comes from cartilage getting inflamed. Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant, and antioxidants help remove potentially damaging free radicals and reduce inflammation. Taking 1 gram of curcumin daily for 8 to 12 weeks reduced arthritis symptoms just as well as ibuprofen, according to a recent review of studies. However, that equates to almost 1/4 cup of turmeric daily, much more than you'd normally get from food. But, when researchers gave a lower dosage of curcumin to people with knee arthritis (180 mg/day, or the amount that's in about 1/2 tablespoon turmeric), they reported less knee pain after 8 weeks compared to people who were given a placebo pill.

Turmeric and curcumin are perhaps best known for their roles in the prevention of Alzheimer's disease. Numerous animal studies have shown that the compound holds promise for preventing accumulation of plaques in the brain. Unfortunately, curcumin must cross the blood-brain barrier to prevent the plaque buildup, and the human digestive system breaks down the curcumin before it can do that. However, in a study on mice, researchers found that inhaling an aerosol type of curcumin bypasses digestion and reaches the brain. Researchers are optimistic that the inhalation method may work for people too (but don't try this at home!).
New oral formulations of curcumin are also showing promising results going across the blood-brain barrier. Taking 80 milligrams of an oral curcumin supplement for 4 weeks can reduce the plaque levels associated with Alzheimer's, according to a study in Nutrition Journal. "Although research in humans is just getting started, if you have a family history of Alzheimer's, you may want to talk to your doctor about new supplemental curcumin formulations," says dietitian and Alzheimer's expert, Susie Zachman, M.S., R.D.N.

Taking curcumin may help relieve some symptoms of depression. When people with major depressive disorder were given curcumin supplements for 8 weeks they reported feeling better, and taking curcumin was significantly more effective in improving several mood-related symptoms than a placebo.

There's promising research around turmeric's ability to help keep cancer at bay. Several studies conducted in mice suggest that curcumin may be toxic to tumor cells. There is lots of promising research in this area, but curcumin is not a cure-all-the type of cancer and other treatments impact how effective curcumin is. One study, published in the Korean Journal of Urology, shows that curcumin may hinder the growth of prostate cancer by about 27 percent. Up to 8 grams of curcumin supplements daily may help stop the spread of some brain tumors, too, according to a study in Therapeutic Advances in Medical Oncology. The same 8-gram dose, combined with existing cancer medicines, may also work to prevent the spread of cancer cells by helping eliminate cells resisting chemotherapy treatment. Research continues, but the links and outcomes so far are promising. Consult your medical team before adding curcumin supplements to cancer treatment, though.

Turmeric should be easy to find in the spice aisle of your local supermarket. Bold-flavored and colorful, turmeric is often used in Asian dishes. You'll see it in Indian recipes, like curries, dal, tikka masala or tandoori. But just because it's traditionally found in Asian cuisine doesn't mean you can't use it in new and interesting ways. Try adding a dash to roasted root vegetables, scrambled eggs, smoothies or sautéed greens.

Turmeric is a golden spice that has been used to treat inflammation, arthritis, Alzheimer’s and even cancer as discussed above. It’s also been used for bacterial infections and digestive issues for thousands of years.
It contains curcumin, which has proven antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
While there is no official consensus on whether it’s best to take curcumin or turmeric supplements, most studies demonstrating effective results have use extracted turmeric with a high concentration of curcumin or curcumin alone.
Both turmeric and curcumin can reduce joint inflammation, cholesterol, blood sugar, as well as tumor, fungal and bacterial growth.
Bioavailability is a term used to describe how well a compound in absorbed by the human body. A known problem with turmeric is that, when taken alone, it is very poorly absorbed in our digestive tract.
It is a known scientific fact that if you want to increase absorption of turmeric and recognize the health benefits, you need to also take piperine, a compound found in black pepper.
Of critical importance when comparing turmeric or curcumin supplements is the addition of BioPerine®
BioPerine® is a patented extract obtained from black pepper fruits (Piper nigrum) standardized minimum to 95% Piperine. BioPerine® has been used as a bioavailability enhancer for over 20 years.
In general, BioPerine® was found to enhance absorption of nutrients by at least 30% and in one study with turmeric, it was shown to improve absorption by as much as 2000%!

You may have tried fresh pressed turmeric root from your local juice bar served in a shot glass. If so, you know it tastes horrible! Although the dried turmeric spice used in cooking is very palatable for most people, the flavor of raw turmeric root is something entirely different.
The problem is, in order to get the amount of turmeric required for fighting inflammation from the dried spice used in recipes would require A LOT of dried turmeric. Nobody is going to use that much turmeric in daily cooking!
That’s why we recommend consuming turmeric root extract in capsule form.
Recognizing that chronic inflammation is believed to be the root cause of most diseases and turmeric root itself is polarizing in taste, 𝗧𝗿𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝗢𝗿𝗴𝗮𝗻𝗶𝘅® set out to formulate a natural solution to combat inflammation in capsule form.
During product development, we looked at numerous studies regarding Turmeric (standardized to contain 95% Curcumin), Boswellia Serrata, and White Willow Bark as top inflammation fighting herbal remedies. We combined all three of these natural ingredients in dosages considered safe for daily use and added BioPerine® for absorption.
Compare the formula of 𝗠𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝗧𝗵𝗮𝗻 𝗧𝘂𝗿𝗺𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗰® to other turmeric supplements on the market and you’ll quickly see the difference — 𝗠𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝗧𝗵𝗮𝗻 𝗧𝘂𝗿𝗺𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗰® is unparalleled in inflammation-fighting ingredients and appropriate dosing.
