🌱Did you know that Turmeric is part of the ginger family, & it’s been used in Ayurvedic & Traditional Chinese Medicine health practices for thousands of years & only recently it’s stirred some excitement in the Western world⁉️ - 🌱Turmeric plant contains a variety of compounds. However the majority of it is made up of water, protein, carbs, & fiber. The COMPOUNDS THAT ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THE EXCITEMENT SURROUNDING TURMERIC IS CURCUMINOIDS & TURMERONES which are present in much smaller amounts. - 🌱CURCUMINOIDS have great antioxidant properties as well as being able to support a healthy inflammatory response in the body. However, they are large and not readily absorbed in the body. - 🌱TUMERONES also help support the body’s normal inflammatory response & nervous system functions. They are tiny, fat soluble molecules that are readily absorbed into the bloodstream. - 🌱Did you know there are 3 forms of Turmeric which have different ratios of curcuminoids & turmerones: - 1.BOTANICAL: this is the raw plant parts, such as root, stem, or leave. The percentage of the 2 compounds is the smallest in comparison to the other 2 forms. - 2. EXTRACT: this is CO2 extract and most of your OTC supplements, which yields the highest curcuminoids of the 3 forms, however the turmerone content is much higher in the botanical (which remember is still very small). Even though it yields the highest curcuminoids, the body is unable to absorb them without assistance. Many have heard that taking black pepper with Turmeric helps facilitate the absorption of the curcuminoids. This is due to the piperine in black pepper which is not in black pepper essential oil. - 3.ESSENTIAL OIL: steam distillation that is mostly turmerones. - 🌱SOLUTION TO MAKE SURE YOU’RE GETTING THE BEST OF BOTH......Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex & Alpha CRS. These are formulated with CO2 extraction for highest curcuminoids, as well as other components to increase the bioavailability 7 folds. Plus with the launch of TURMERIC ESSENTIAL OIL, when combining these products, you gain the highest amount of curcuminoids and turmerones & therefore gain the full range of Turmeric’s benefits.
