Those of you that do not know what Turmeric is it's a spice that gives curry its yellow color. Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. I was accepted for a Campaign through Tomoson to review the 100NATURALS Turmeric Curcumin "dietary supplement" to review. I was a bit skeptical at first before trying this product because I like to read about it or ask my mom about it because she knows a lot of good sources for different supplements because we used to watch Dr. Oz a lot or she would tape the show a lot and tell me this and that, so she was really into all these types of different advances for health. It's also shows high quality studies that it has major benefits for your body and brain.
Why do people take Turmeric Curcumin? Well lab studies have suggested that curcumin or turmeric might protect against types of skin diseases, Alzheimer's disease, colitis, stomach ulcers, and high cholesterol. Based on lab studies, turmeric and curcumin might also help treat upset stomach, scabies, diabetes, and viral infections.
Did you know that turmeric has been used in India for thousands of years for much more than just flavoring food? Turmeric has been proven over the years to be one of the best natural supplements you can find. I also love find it really nice that it also helps with depression as well which is always good because I suffer from anxiety/depression. Don't use turmeric if you have gallstones or bile duct dysfunction. Pregnant women shouldn't use it without their doctor's approval. In rare cases, extended use can cause stomach upset or heartburn.
Directions: As a dietary supplement take 2 capsules, 1 or 2 times a day. For best results take 20-30 minutes before a meal or as directed by your healthcare professional.
