In past years, researchers have been uncovering the ways that turmeric and its powerful ingredient Curcumin can help fight oxidation in your blood and throughout your body and your mind. This plays the largest role in reducing inflammation—the most damaging outgrowth from oxidized cells.
Curcumin works to address the problem of oxidation at its source by helping repair and fortify the telomeres of your cell’s chromosomes and ensuring fewer “free radical” cells are wreaking havoc in your blood stream, and in your brain. Therefore, unlike quitting smoking or cutting out fried foods to fight free radicals, curcumin is both a fighter and a builder on behalf of your body.
Scientists have even found ways to increase the effects of curcumin by 2000%! But wait, before I tell you what has been discovered about the power of curcumin, here are just 4 of the amazing benefits you will experience when you add curcumin into your daily regimen:
- Mood Boost
According to Medical News Today, curcumin can greatly enhance your mood. Inflammation is often highly correlated with irritability and anxiety, and as curcumin works to curb inflammation, a byproduct could be a decrease in your symptoms of a mood disorder.
The studies back this up as well.
In an experiment with a placebo and curcumin supplements, the patients who took curcumin noticed mood increases—while the placebo did not.
- Fight Neuro-Degenerative Diseases of the Brain like Alzheimer’s
Curcumin may also play a key role in helping manage the effects of Alzheimer’s. Sound science indicates that inflammation, as well as the stress let on by oxidation, are large factors that lead to the breakdown of cells in your brain. This can lead to nerve cell damage, which is a key component of the early onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
With its cell strengthening power, curcumin can work to regenerate cells and help prevent further damage to your nerve cells.
- Improve Your Memory
The case is becoming clearer every day: the work curcumin does to inhibit cellular damage is not just preventative, its restorative. Especially in your mind. This study reveals why.
A group of patients was tested to measure the impact curcumin has on human memory. One group had a placebo, while another with a curcumin supplement.
While there was no improvement among the placebo group, 28 Percent of patients using curcumin showed significant memory improvements.
- Protect your Vision
The oxidative stress let on by free radical cells could be inflicting damage in areas that you did not see coming, including your eye health.
In fact, it can lead to Glaucoma—an eye disease present in Millions of Americans that sometimes leads to blindness. Research conducted at the University of Chicago reveals that curcumin could work to treat the early signs of Glaucoma by reducing oxidation on the veins, feeding your eyes clean blood to sustain clearer vision.
Turmeric has a notoriously tough time being soluble, meaning that it does not get along with water. Puzzling over this fact, some researchers have even recommended patients administer the spice through eye drops!
And while this may be appealing to some, the researchers at Mojo Insight have developed a new method which maintains the easy to use supplement capsule.
When mixed with curcumin, Bioperine Pepper Extract has been proven to increase the effect of Turmeric by 2000%! This is why we have included Bioperine as an ingredient to our Turmeric strategy in Advanced Inflammation Support.
