The benefits of Turmeric
We’ve included Turmeric in our Move Capsules, so let’s dive in and get to know this popular member of the ginger family…
A hot topic
Turmeric, a bright yellow spice used throughout Asia for centuries, has in recent decades been embraced by the West. Typically used in its dried, powdered form, Turmeric is found in many savoury Asian dishes. It is most notably a principal ingredient in curry powders.
Turmeric's eastern flavours
Grown for its root, Turmeric has an ancient history of uses in cooking, fabric dyeing, cosmetics and traditional medicine in both India and China. In India, it was traditionally used for disorders of the skin, upper respiratory tract, joints, and digestive system while in medieval Europe, Turmeric was known as Indian saffron.
Curcumin, turmeric's key component
We can’t talk about Turmeric without mentioning its main component, Curcumin. Not only does Curcumin give Turmeric its unique golden yellow colouring, but it also offers a dazzling array of health benefits…
Using turmeric for joint pain, digestion and more
Curcumin is strongly anti-inflammatory, has powerful antioxidant properties and helps to balance the digestive system. Studies have demonstrated that Turmeric may play a role in preventing arthritis, due to its perceived impact on joint pain.
In addition, research suggests that it may also be a vital ingredient for managing muscle inflammation and soreness after exercise, therefore supporting post-workout recovery and performance for those with an active lifestyle.
Did you know turmeric is often paired with black pepper?
Did you know that as Turmeric’s hero component – Curcumin - is poorly absorbed into the bloodstream, it helps to consume black pepper with it? This is because black pepper contains Piperine, a natural substance studies show can significantly enhance the absorption and bioavailabilty of Curcumin.
