Turmeric is a perennial herb of the ginger family that is extensively cultivated in India, China, Indonesia and other tropical countries.
In Ayurvedic medicine Turmeric was prescribed for the treatment of many conditions including poor vision, rheumatic pains, coughs and to increase milk production in nursing mothers.
Turmeric's properites are best known as:
ANTIOXIDANT - the active constituent known as curcumin has been shown to protect against free radical damage to DNA. Turmeric and its derivatives have been shown to raise the body's own antioxidant systems through increasing glutathione levels.
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY - Curcumin reduces inflammation by lowering histamine levels and by increasing production of natural cortisone by the adrenal glands. A preliminary trial in people with rheumatoid arthritis found curcumin to be somewhat useful for reducing inflammation and symptoms such as pain and stiffness. A separate double-blind trial found that curcumin was superior to placebo or phenylbutazone (an NSAID) for alleviating post-surgical inflammation.
LIVER PROTECTIVE - Curcumin protects the liver from a number of toxic compounds, and has been shown to be an active choleretic, increasing bile acid output by over 100%. Curcumin also aids in the excretion of cholesterol, bilirubin, and increases solubility of bile.
CARDIO-PROTECTIVE - Curcumin has been shown to reduce platelets from clumping together, which in turn improves circulation and may help protect against atherosclerosis.
DIGESTIVE TONIC - Turmeric and curcumin improve gastric integrity through increasing mucin content of the stomach, thus may protect against ulcer formation.
Dosage: One to three capsules to be taken daily.
Viridian Nutrition: the fundamentals
Nutrition is the fundamental cornerstone to human health. Every single reaction, biochemical pathway, and physiological event that takes place in our bodies, requires nutrients at some stage. An elaborate and perfectly organised sequence of vitamins, minerals, fats, and amino acids, allow our bodies to function on a day to day basis. However, when our needs in this area are not met, things can quickly begin to go awry. Therefore it is essential that we pay serious attention to our daily diet. A diet based around whole foods, fruits vegetables, and the right types of fats can be the greatest health insurance we can have. Nutritional supplementation is also a practical tool. It is a sad fact that in today’s modern world, we cannot rely 100% upon the quality and nutrient density of even the best fresh produce, due to intensive farming, depleted soils and environmental factors. Coupled with this, we have far greater physical demands placed upon us, meaning that very often our requirements for specific nutrients are higher than they ever have been if we are able to cope physiologically. Nutritional supplements, when used correctly can be a valuable tool in addressing such issues.
Government surveys have identified the following groups of people as being at especial risk from low vitamin and mineral intakes: highly active people, menstruating women, vegetarians and vegans, the elderly, slimmers, pregnant and breast-feeding women, smokers, drinkers and faddy eaters.
