Along with being responsible for giving curry its absolutely gorgeous vibrant yellow color, turmeric has been used as a medicinal spice in India for thousands of years, but has just begun gaining popularity in the states over the past several years: and for great reason! This powerhouse spice and its medicinal compounds- circuminoids, especially circumin, are jam packed with proven benefits, from anti infmalitory, to improving sleep, to even improving brain function, it’s no wonder people can’t stop raving! You can read more about the benefits of turmeric here.
I have been taking turmeric supplements with mixed results over the course of about 3 years, and recently had the pleasure of trying the Curcumin with 185x bioavailability (or, how well it is absorbed into your body) by Solgar, and I cannot say enough wonderful things about it!
If you’ve followed me for a while, you know that I am very open about living with my anxiety and depression. Taking this supplement for about a month now, I’ve found major improvements in my mood and overall mental health.
Another significant improvement has been in my feet. I’ve been experiencing achey feet every morning and night since about the beginning of the year, and more recently severe heel pain in the morning. I’ve tried orthopedic shoes, massaging, and muscular hemp oil, which help over time. With this Circumin I find the acheyness subsided within about an hour.
Now obviously I am no medical expert, and don’t claim to be. And these are only MY experiences, so it may be different for everyone. However, with all of the research that is available today on the benefits of Turmeric, it is definitely worth trying!
