|Premier Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a bright yellow tuber (as used in curry) that has been consumed for over 30 centuries in many countries for liver health.* The active compounds in turmeric known as curcuminoids exert extraordinary liver protection and rejuvenation properties. Curcumin is a potent antioxidant showing activity as much as 300 times greater than that of vitamin E. Curcumin helps stimulate the flow of bile and aids in fat digestion. Normal secretions of biles are necessary for proper digestion as it alkalinizes stomach acids and helps formation of chyme.|
|Only the finest grade 10 quality Indian turmeric is ground in our lab’s non-toxic grinder and then immediately encapsulated in 100% vegetable capsules without any toxic excipients whatsoever. No magnesium stearate (a hydrogenated oil), talcum or silicon dioxide (ground sand) are used. Premier Turmeric and all raw materials used by our labs must pass photo luminescent near infrared spectrum analysis to ensure that all raw materials are non-irradiated and not contaminated with pesticide/insecticide residues.|
|The Protective Properties of Turmeric
Protecting the body’s healthy cells from the harmful elements of today’s environment can be a challenge. But with the extraordinary compounds in turmeric, such as curcuminoids, the formation of free radicals can be prevented. Curcuminoids are highly active phytonutrients proven to fight free radical formation in food as well as the body’s cells. They act to scavenge and neutralize existing free radicals.
Curcuminoids offer special protection and extraordinary building properties for the liver. Nearly 200 scientific papers have documented the antioxidant and immune modulating properties of curcuminoids, which act as essential protectors against undesirable and potentially damaging elements.
Another human trial studied smokers and turmeric use.
Perhaps due to their extraordinary antioxidant potential, curcuminoids as found in turmeric may help the body cope with immune stress without the toxicity of NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). In addition, many direct, immune-specific effects of curcuminoids may be in part due to their inhibitory action on thromboxanes and leukotrienes. Curcuminoids help stimulate the release of adrenal corticosteroids and help increase sensitivity of cortisone receptors while simultaneously preventing the breakdown of cortisone. This may explain why curcuminoid supplementation has shown excellent results for improved morning joint flexibility and overall joint health and function. Curcuminoids may be especially effective during joint “flare-ups”.
In one double-blind clinical trial that involved patients with joint concerns, the group taking curcuminoids showed improvements in the duration of morning flexibility, walking time and joint movement. The safety and excellent tolerability of turmeric and curcuminoids compared to standard drugs is a major advantage. No toxicity reactions to curcuminoids have been reported.
Because of the proven liver cleansing and rejuvenative properties of turmeric, supplementing daily with grade 10 Indian turmeric may provide significant support the body’s primary detox organ, the liver, as well as protection against environmental and dietary toxins.
