Practitioners of Ayurvedic utilize turmeric in their medicine for its anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric. Recent research shows (external link) that the ancient knowledge and claims of the anti-inflammatory effects of turmeric are indeed true. The most important compound present in turmeric which has this property is curcumin.
Curcumin is an important curcuminoid which is the main active ingredient in turmeric. Aside from reducing inflammation in body tissue, it is also a powerful antioxidant. The amount of curcumin in turmeric root is about 3%. However, the vegetable-glycerin-based extraction methods used by Leefy Organics can produce much more potent doses of this important compound. Our turmeric supplements liquid form allows for sublingual application which is much more effective in delivering the healing properties of the turmeric curcumin.
Modern medical research asserts that the underlying cause of most major Western diseases are due to chronic low-level inflammation within the human body. Unfortunately, almost all medications which treat this inflammation are marginally effective and have side effects. Turmeric and curcumin extracts are able to provide similar results without any of the side effects.
