Turmeric-Should You Add To And Take A Supplement?


Turmeric, Curcuma longa or “Indian saffron” has been a part of the healthy dieting trend for quite some time and it isn’t without good reason. Traditionally Asian, the plant belongs to the ginger family and it gives curry its yellowish color and warm, bitter taste. With an amazing array of health benefits it offers, it is no wonder that it has been quickly adopted by the health conscious eaters around the world and forms part of the recommended Sirtfood Diet.

We are advocates for eating a lot of this versatile sirtfood spice. But for turmeric to really boost your health, you may want to add a supplement, too.

The main health-giving part of this plant is the chemical curcumin. More than 7,000 studies have examined its effects in helping prevent cancer, arthritis, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Its anti-inflammatory properties are what make it such a Swiss Army knife of nutrients. “Since chronic inflammation all over the body is the root cause of many illnesses, taking curcumin supplements is an easy and potentially effective way to prevent diseases,” says Ajay Goel, Ph.D. who researches curcumin and cancer at the Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas.

A teaspoon of turmeric contains only about 100 mg of the active ingredient. You need anywhere from two to 10 times that to get the biggest benefits. For supplements, Goel recommends taking ones that contain 250 or 500 mg once or twice a day.

There is a wide range of turmeric supplements available at Amazon’s online store.

    I was diagnosed with Parkinson Disease(PD).My symptoms started at the age of 45. My fingers on my left hand were stiff and were difficult to move. People noticed that my walk was not normal. I was often asked did I hurt. I noticed nothing different about my walk. It was difficult getting up from` a chair and getting out of a car. I was diagnosed a year later. on a very faithful day as my son was browsing on the internet, he saw someone who testified of how a herbal doctor by the name Doctor Sithuu(Perfecthealthherbalmedicinehome) cured him of same disease with the use of herbs. So i contacted the herbal doctor, and after i explain to him, he assured me that he can cure me of Parkinson disease. He gave me the steps to follow, i followed it and he prepared the herbs and send it to me in USA. i took the mixture according to his prescription and behold it worked perfectly for me.
