Eat the rainbow!

Ever heard the saying: “Eat the rainbow”? It comes from the idea that colorful fruit and veggies are rich in vitamins and minerals. As for turmeric, it’s definitely true! For thousands of years, India has used turmeric in traditional medicine. Modern medicine is a little late, but they’ve finally joined the party! Research found that the active component in turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory effects. This, in turn, helps to reduce pain that comes from inflammation and infection.

The downside is that turmeric on it’s own has a very poor bioavailability. This means that the body only absorbs a low percentage of what is actually consumed. Luckily, black pepper is able to enhance the bioavailability by a staggering 2000%. Our turmeric supplement contains the perfect balance of organic turmeric powder and organic black pepper. Together, turmeric and black pepper form an invincible pair to support your healthy lifestyle.

Did you know turmeric is also famous for supporting a healthy heart? It lowers the harmful buildup of cholesterol along the walls of arteries. Turmeric helps your blood to flow through your veins more freely. Turmeric is not only beneficial to your cholesterol levels, but also to your blood pressure. The powerful properties of curcumin  — the active component in turmeric  — may help to decrease blood pressure. A healthy blood pressure will keep your blood vessels in good shape and will lower the risk of a heart attack, stroke and other heart related diseases.

And if that’s not enough, turmeric is also a great supplement if you want to give your immune system a boost. The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric support the body to defend itself against foreign and harmful bacteria. Imagine curcumin  — turmerics active component  — as nature’s very own antibiotic. Antibiotics fight bacteria; the thing with antibiotics, however, is they not only fight the bad bacteria but also the good ones! Turmeric, on the other hand, only fights the harmful bacteria. Studies report that turmeric can have a positive influence on diseases such as arthritis, asthma and diabetes. All of this thanks to its ability to support the immune system.
