It is well known that various spices have powerful medicinal properties, which is why they’ve been used to promote healing for thousands of years. Turmeric is a good example of one of these health-promoting “gems”. Turmeric has a yellow-pigment and is often used in Indian cuisine. It contains curcumin, the polyphenol identified as its primary active component, which exhibits over 150 potentially therapeutic activities. It acts as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and has anti-cancer properties. Curcumin has been shown to influence more than 700 genes. It is capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier, which is one reason why it holds promise in treating a wide range of neurological disorders. As a matter of fact, researchers have investigated curcumin for its potential role in improving Parkinson’s disease. It 3 times more powerful than grape seed or pine bark extract.
Curcumin can help improve your overall health because it:
- Promotes a healthy immune system, including supporting your body against stress
- Supports healthy joint function and overall skeletal system
- Helps maintain a healthy digestive system
- Promotes healthy blood and liver functions – assists the body in purging waste
- Improves brain function
- Promotes healthy nervous and circulatory systems
- Provides the antioxidants you need to help support cells against excessive oxidation and free radical damage
- Supports absorption of vitamins and minerals
- Promotes radiant skin (cleanses the skin, provides nourishment to the skin, and maintains its elasticity)
And so much more…
At Rejuvena, we also use curcumin as one of our IV therapy treatments. Intravenous (IV) nutrient therapy is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, amino acids, oxygen, ozone, and UV light directly into the bloodstream. This process can effectively correct intracellular nutrient deficiencies since oral intake of such high doses is simply not possible due to absorption limitations from the digestive process. Patients can get up to 10 times the nutrients in one treatment as they could get orally.
There are millions of people using turmeric every day. Perhaps it’s time for you to consider including it in your daily supplement regimen.
