As you probably know, I’ve been on a mission to not only learn the most safe and effective ways to improve my health, but also help you and your loved ones do the same. That’s the real motive behind NaturalNews. One substance I’ve been researching for years is known as turmeric. It’s a truly unique spice that has been labeled the ‘king of all spices’ and has even been called ‘the next vitamin D’.
In my research, I’ve learned that the way in which turmeric works with your body’s natural biology is simply amazing. This may come as no surprise considering it is one of the most well-researched spices in modern history. While the list of turmeric benefits is certainly remarkable, it’s even more interesting to explore just how deeply the use of turmeric has been rooted into the history of natural medicine and healing. And for good reason, as you’ll see below.
Turmeric is routinely used as a key spice in many South Asian and Middle Eastern nations and is even heavily embedded into Ayurvedic (a traditional system of medicine that originated thousands of years ago) healing. Many traditional systems of medicine have recognized the ginger family relative known as turmeric as a ‘spice powerhouse’ of sorts. Turmeric can aid your body in a number of ways, such as in how it:
- Supports the immune system*
- Helps improve digestion*
- Promotes healthy blood and liver functions*
- Helps cleanse the skin and provide nourishment*
It’s easy to see why turmeric may be a valuable addition to your current healthy lifestyle, and even easier to see why modern researchers have focused a great deal of research on the properties of turmeric.
Turmeric Benefits | One of the Most Studied Botanicals in Modern Science
You see, even modern research is now shedding light on the many beneficial properties of turmeric. Amazingly, turmeric is one of the most studied botanicals in modern science.
While many enthusiasts and health professionals around the globe have known about the highly appealing characteristics of this ‘granddady’ spice, it wasn’t until recently that the health media properly began covering the bountiful amount of turmeric benefits.
Some essential vitamins and nutrients naturally found in turmeric include:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamins B-1, B-2, B-3
- Other phytonutrients
If you’ve been following recent health trends, you’re probably fully aware of how important antioxidants are for your health. The antioxidants in turmeric, such as vitamin C and others, actually come from active compounds within the spice called curcuminoids. What you may not be aware of is just how powerful the antioxidants delivered by these curcuminoids may be. Amazingly, curcumonoids may deliver antioxidants which are:
- A whopping 5 to 8 times stronger than vitamin E and vitamin C
- 3 times more powerful than grape seed or pine bark extract
It is important, though, to make sure you are getting the right (high quality) turmeric when it comes to your health. In fact, it is perhaps the most important part of the decision to purchase any herb or spice. I recommend you do not take the risk on low quality or synthetically processed forms of turmeric which are commonplace in the supplement market.
Avoiding Fillers, Synthetic Ingredients, and even Genetically Modified Organisms in Many Turmeric Products
In other words, don’t simply purchase any turmeric supplement you can find in your local supermarket or health food store. It is very important to be selective when it comes to what you put into your body. When selecting Natural Attitude Vitality Turmeric out of a marketplace of thousands of other formulas, we went through a rigorous quality checklist that covered everything from how the organic turmeric was harvested to how it was ultimately extracted into liquid form.
Here are some key points from the checklist that needed to be met in order for the finished product to meet my high standards of quality and potency:
- Contains certified organic turmeric — there was no room for questionable sources of turmeric to be used.
- Free of fillers, additives, and artificial sweeteners — the formula was not allowed to contain any of these items.
- Free from genetically modified ingredients — no GMOs were allowed be in the formula.
- Vegan and Kosher certified — it was important that everyone could enjoy this product.
From the formula ingredients to the manufacturing process, we spent a great deal of time ensuring that Vitality Turmeric is not only free of any such concerns but also produced with only the best ingredients by a manufacturer with serious experience and reputation in the industry. I believe it is very important to examine the manufacturing process of a product in addition to the quality of the formula. In fact, I believe that improper manufacturing techniques can seriously impact the overall benefits of any herb or spice.
This is why I was very careful in selecting not only the proper manufacturing process, but the highest quality cultivation process as well. As a rule of thumb, I required that the manufacturer obtain certification of ‘Good Manufacturing Process (GMP)’. When a manufacturer follows GMP guidelines, it means that they are highly trained to produce high quality formulas according to highly detailed specifications. Most importantly, the facilities follow strict record-keeping, so there’s no guesswork about their production process.
Knowing where my natural health products come from — and how they are created — is extremely important to me, and I’m sure you’ll agree none of us wish to put something into our bodies unless we’re confident it is created without contaminants or fillers.
