UPDATE NOV'21 - TURMERIC ALERT There’s recently been a food safety alert for products coming in from India. A particular chemical - Ethylene Oxide – is being used there as a preventative measure against COVID, but it''s regarded as a carcinogen in high concentrations. Just to let you know, our organic certified Turmeric supplier is undertaking routine analysis to ensure that it’s not affected by this chemical.

The Science

Curcumin, a term commonly used to refer to the three main curcuminoids found in turmeric - curcumin, demethoxycurcumin, and bisdemethoxycurcumin - are polyphenolic pigments and active compounds found within the turmeric rhizome.

First identified by Harvard scientists in 1815, curcumin is now known to be responsible for the many therapeutic benefits of turmeric. Curcumin inhibits inflammatory responses in various signaling pathways, which means that it helps to suppress the body’s tendency to cause inflammation. It’s also believed that curcumin acts as a powerful antioxidant, counteracting damaging particles that can be produced by the body as a byproduct of toxic or inflammatory stressors.

  • Reduces inflammation and feelings of pain in muscles, joints, and other tissues.
  • Supports the body’s natural healing process.
  • Enhances post-exercise recovery and physical performance.
