The Use Of Turmeric In Supplements

For thousands of years, the turmeric plant has been used for everything from its vibrant golden-orange color, to its healing properties. Today, we’d like to take a moment to get up close and personal with this ancient root, and talk about exactly what makes it so versatile – and what keeps it one of our best selling products.

Turmeric is a perennial plant that is part of the ginger family, and like many of the other supplements we have discussed, is native to southern Asia. The edible part of turmeric is in its chunky roots. When used in cooking or as a supplement, the roots are boiled for over half an hour, and then dried in an oven. Eventually they are ground into the colorful powder we are more familiar with.

Non-Medicinal Uses Of Turmeric

Turmeric powder is a staple ingredient in many Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle Eastern culinary dishes, including curries, soups, rice dishes, and teas. Like ginger, turmeric can also be used raw. Additionally, turmeric is often used in the textile industry in Indian and Bangladeshi garments, specifically saris and Buddhist monks’ robes.

Turmeric’s Use In Traditional Medicine

For thousands of years, turmeric has been used in traditional medicine to treat everything from the common cold to indigestion to liver problems, as well as being used topically to treat wounds. As modern society becomes more aware of medicinal uses to turmeric, more studies continue to arise that show potential for this herb in treating several ailments.

The Science Of Supplements

Turmeric supplements used for medicinal purposes are different than just the turmeric spice. The healing part of the supplement is the extract curcumin, which in turmeric spice only makes up about 3 percent of the powder. For supplements, we extract the healing curcumin, and provide it at 95 percent. This is why reaping the benefits of turmeric takes more than a trip to the spice aisle at your grocery store.

However, the bloodstream has a hard time absorbing curcumin. For that reason, WiseLifeNaturals offers supplements that contain black pepper extract, or piperine. This black pepper extract has been proven to increase the body’s availability to absorb substances.

What Can Turmeric Supplements Do For Me?

For natural health remedies, many people turn to turmeric, and for good reason. Turmeric is most often used as an anti-inflammatory aid. Curcumin has been shown in studies to block a certain molecule that is believed to be responsible for causing inflammation. This molecule, known to scientists as NG-kB, is believed to be the root of many chronic diseases. Turmeric supplements have also been shown in one recent study to improve symptoms associated with rheumatoid arthritis better than even anti-inflammatory drugs. Various other studies have been done about turmeric’s use in treating depression, cancer, and brain disease, but your doctor should be consulted before using turmeric supplements for these purposes.

Why It Is Important To Know Where Your Turmeric Comes From

The spice market can actually be incredibly lucrative. Turmeric, often sold from distributors by weight, has been known to be tampered with by cutting turmeric potentially toxic powders, such as lead oxide – which could be spotted by the “turmeric” having more of a red than a gold-orange color. Other sources of turmeric have been known to enhance the color of the powder with a dye called “acid yellow 36” – a dye that has been deemed illegal by the British Food Standards Agency. For this reason, it is important to be careful where you buy your turmeric. Turmeric that is suspiciously less expensive than competitors should probably be avoided, or purchased with extreme caution. WiseLifeNaturals only sells turmeric that is all-natural, non-GMO, and free of artificial colors, flavors, and sweeteners.

The Importance Of A Healthy Gut

As more and more research is released about gut health, it seems like now is a better time than ever to start improving the health of your gut. Our gut contains trillions of microorganisms in the form of good and bad bacteria. Good bacteria, also known as probiotics, help to digest our food while absorbing the nutrients. And considering that your gut lining contains about 70% of the cells that make up your immune system, an unhealthy gut has been linked to diabetes, hormonal imbalances, eczema, rosacea, fatigue, autoimmune diseases, anxiety, depression, and other chronic illnesses. An unhealthy gut is more obviously associated with digestive issues such as gas, bloating, diarrhea, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Benefits Of A Healthy Gut

You may be thinking that the problems listed above are unavoidable — that maybe they are just part of life or due to genetics. However, it is believed that these issues, or at least symptoms of these issues, can improve when your gut health improves. Digestive problems are the issues that are most likely to improve with gut health, considering that your gut is where food is either absorbed or passed through, and the bacteria in your gut are responsible for deciding what stays and what goes. But non-digestive issues have also been shown to improve with gut health. One study done in 2011 showed a significant decrease in symptoms of depression and anxiety for participants who took a probiotic supplement every day as opposed to those who took a placebo. Another study showed that a healthy gut can help to avoid obesity, which you can read about here.

Steps To Improving Gut Health:

  • Avoid Antibiotics: For some serious diseases and infections, antibiotics can be a lifesaving treatment, however antibiotics cannot differentiate between good and bad bacteria. Taking antibiotics has been shown to lessen the diversity of the type of bacteria found in your gut, which ultimately weakens your immune system. Be sure to consult your doctor before stopping any prescribed antibiotics.
  • Take A Probiotic: Scientists have known about the benefits of probiotics for over 100 years, since a published study in 1907 that linked long lifespans with drinking a fermented milk that contained what we now know as probiotics. Probiotics supplements are a way to deliver new strains of healthy bacteria to the gut, which can support digestion and healthy absorption of nutrients.
  • Indulge In Fermented Foods: Consuming fermented foods and drinks can introduce healthy bacteria to the gut. Some healthy options are yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, fermented tofu, soy sauce, and kombucha. While you can often buy these at the store, usually these are pasteurized and lacking in authentic good bacteria. Yogurt and kombucha are easy to make at home, and many people enjoy this as a hobby.
  • Keep Stress In Check: Stress can have a surprisingly high impact on your gut health, usually involving the lining on your gut. Perhaps you know someone who has had a stomach ulcer due to stress, or experienced IBS during times of stress. All of this is linked to your gut health. When stressed, the brain sends chemical signals to the gut which can decrease blood flow to the gut and ruin your gut’s lining. Try stress management techniques such as meditation, aromatherapy, exercise, finding a hobby, or talking to a trusted friend, family member, or counselor about your stress.
  • Find A Healthy Gut Supplement: WiseLifeNaturals offers several supplements that contain extracts that may improve gut health and overall wellness.* Our bestselling AdderPlex, for example, contains the black pepper extract Piperine. Black pepper is thought to be a way to improve gut health by increasing blood supply to the gut, and in turn, could increase the active nutrient transport ability of our digestive system.* Other supplements we offer that can support gut health and digestion are our Pure Garcinia Cambogia, Kerala Herbs Pure Turmeric Curcumin, and Pure Moringa Oleifera Extract.

​Why So Many Of Our Supplements Are Native To Southeast Asia

If you take a look at some of WiseLifeNaturals’ top selling natural health and anti-aging supplements, you’ll notice a common theme: Many of the herbs and plants that provide the essential extracts for holistic health are native to Southeast Asia. The plants that produce garcinia cambogia, moringa oleifera, ashwagandha, and turmeric all thrive in the fertile valleys and mountainous regions of the continent. So, why is this? Let’s take a look at some of the properties that make Southeast Asia so favorable for providing us with everything we need for holistic and natural health.

Nutrient-Rich Soil

Southeast Asia has long been home to some of the most fertile soils in the world. Regions near rivers and valleys are full of alluvial soil – fine, mineral-rich soil that has been deposited by rivers and floods. Asia also has regions of volcanic soil – which is exactly what it sounds like. Volcanic soils have special chemical properties that make it rich in nutrients and allow it to hold water well because of the volcanic ash integrated in the soil. The more nutrients the soil has to offer, the more nutrients the final product will have. Gingko biloba, the main extract in WiseLifeNaturals’ AdderPlex, grows in acidic loess, a silty soil that offers good drainage, and is found in southern parts of China where the gingko trees are native.

Diverse Climate

Asia is known for its diverse climate. From humid tropics to temperate plains, the climate in Asia accommodates an abundance of crops and plants. Moringa oleifera, which is native to the foothills of the Himalayas and one of our best-selling Superfood supplements, thrives in the tropical climate that the base of the mountains. On the other hand, Ashwagandha, the shrub that produces another one of the main extracts in our AdderPlex, is native to drier regions of India.

Various Terrains

Southeast Asia’s terrain is even more diverse than its climate. With mountains being the dominant landscape, there are also vast volcanic areas, rivers that flow into fertile valleys, and flat, tropical lowlands. Each terrain is home to unique agriculture, and provides the perfect environment for native plants to thrive.

What Does This Mean For Our Products?

Many of the plant extracts and supplements that we supply to you have been used for thousands of years for medicinal and beauty purposes. Moringa Oleifera, for example, has been known as “Mother’s Milk” or “The Tree of Life” for over a thousand years. Gingko biloba, from our AdderPlex Supplement, is the oldest known species of tree still in existence, with fossils dating back 270 million years. Turmeric, native to southern Asia, has been used for thousands of years in traditional medicine. All of this means that these extracts have been tried and tested with proven results for better health and wellness. We provide these supplements to you in convenient capsules delivered to your door, so you can reap the benefits that nature has to offer without the hassle. Let us help you be your best self with our nutrition supplements, the way nature intended. If millenniums of continued use doesn’t convince you, our 90-day hassle free returns policy will allow you to try our products and experience the results first hand.

Natural Health Remedies For Looking And Feeling Your Best

Remember those toxins we were talking about? Well it might surprise you to learn that they’re in your medications and conventional health remedies as well. Looking to make the biggest profit possible, pharmaceutical and personal care companies make many of the over the counter remedies we’ve relied on since childhood with ingredients that may cause more harm than good. In many cases, these products simply mask the symptoms of a health problem that has much deeper roots. Would you rather be medicated or truly healthy? Our natural health remedies can help.
