Here’s something that has a long list of studies supporting its potential health benefits: turmeric. A good source of the antioxidant curcumin, this superfood may help with a whole range of health problems, even offering a health boost to otherwise healthy people.
One of the most studied benefits of curcumin is to support joint health. Antioxidants, and curcumin in particular, support the health and function of joints and may help to ease pain. Studies suggest that a small amount of curcumin in the diet may be an easy way to get a leg up on joint health.
Other health conditions that turmeric (by way of curcumin) supports the body against range from cancer to liver health to depression, fatigue, eye health, and diabetes to everything under the umbrella of oxidative and inflammatory damage and stress, like colitis, allergies, and asthma.
Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant, but it’s not strictly the most powerful, so there’s more to it than just that antioxidant boost. Get a little curcumin in your diet each day by working the flavor into your favorite dish (beef stew with turmeric is good during cold months), taking it straight (just work it into some warm oil so you can digest/absorb it better), or get it from your favorite supplement.
While you can find turmeric in our supplements that support liver, body, joints, and memory, a good place to begin for general support is Triple Strength Antioxidant. Part of the Welltrient Trio, Triple Strength Antioxidant is a good way to get an assortment of powerful antioxidants (including curcumin from turmeric) into your daily diet, no recipe changes or home brews required.
