  • Alzheimer’s Disease
    • Inflammation and oxidative damage play a role in Alzheimer’s disease which Turmeric & Curcumin supports both

  • Turmeric is considered a powerful antioxidant due to its curcumin content and its long list of health attributes including:
    • anti-inflammatory
    • antimicrobial
    • anticancer
    • neuroprotective
    • immune balancing
    • detoxifying properties
  • In Ayurvedic medicine it is also used topically to treat:
    • skin problems
    • infection
    • joint pain
  • Although curcumin can also be found in extract form, the advantage of turmeric as a whole herb is that it stays in the digestive tract longer, releasing curcumin along with other beneficial substances over more time, instead of passing through the system unnoticed by the body.
  • As a spice, turmeric has been a staple in south Asian cuisines and is appreciated for its warm, peppery, and slightly bitter taste and strong yellow colour which can be incorporated in a multitude of recipes, including:
    • stir-fry’s
    • baked goods
    • smoothies
    • juices
    • teas
    • capsules
    • decoctions
    • tinctures
  • It is recommended to consume Turmeric with a source of fat in order to increase absorption of its health properties as well as with a pinch of black pepper which contains Piperine, a natural substance that can boost the bioavailability of curcumin by 2000%.

Alterative, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antimutagenic, antioxidant, antispasmodic, carminative, cholagogue, choleric, emmenagogue, hepatoprotective, hypolipedemic, vulnerary.

Alterative – strengthens and nourishes the body, often through the removal of metabolic wastes

Anti-inflammatory – controls inflammation, a reaction to injury or infection

Antimicrobial – destroys microbes

Antimutagenic – an agent that reduces the number of spontaneous or induced mutations

Antioxidant – prevents or inhibits oxidation

Antispasmodic – calms nervous and muscular spasms or convulsions

Carminative – causes the release of stomach or intestinal gas

Cholagogue – increases flow of bile from gallbladder

Choleric – increases the volume of bile produced by the liver

Emmenagogue – regulates and induces normal menstruation

Hepatic – having to do with the liver

Hepatoprotective – the ability of a chemical substance to prevent damage to the liver

Hypolipedemic – reduces high levels of lipids (fats) and lipoproteins (fats with protein) in the blood such as cholesterol

Vulnerary – aids in healing wounds

Warming & slightly drying.

Turmeric is generally safe for all persons when used in foods.

Consumption for pregnant women is generally considered safe but should not be taken in high doses. This is because of Turmeric’s emmenagogue effects. Which means it may stimulate blood flow in the pelvic area and uterus; and/or stimulate menstruation.

Those with a history of biliary tract obstruction should be aware that turmeric has a potential bile stimulating activity.

Those who are on blood-thinning medication should be aware that turmeric may have blood thinning activity.

1. RESEARCH – Consult at least 3 credible sources for use and safety before taking herbs/supplements.
2. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY – Your body and intuition will guide you on what works best and what doesn’t work for you.
3. CHECK WITH A PROFESSIONAL – Speak with your doctor, a pharmacist, or herbalist for herb/drug interactions and safety practices. Keep your doctor informed along your health journey.

We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
