Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/17/2015 -- There are many herbs and spices nowadays that are used by many individuals for health purposes. Some incorporate these natural ingredients in their diet while others take them in the form of a supplement. One of the most popular natural ingredients is called turmeric.
Turmeric is believed to be the best known spice in the United States. This ancient spice has long been used in India to remedy various health conditions. Today, many people are using it and aside from being a kitchen ingredient, it is also sold as a natural supplement.
According to studies, turmeric contains antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that can potentially be beneficial for overall health. The active ingredient of the spice known as curcumin, on the other hand, is believed to have the ability to reduce inflammation. There were several studies that suggest it could help ease the symptoms of arthritic conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. These symptoms include inflammation and pain.
"Various studies revealed that curcumin contains therapeutic substances that can increase one's protection from skin disease, high cholesterol, stomach ulcers, colitis and Alzheimer's disease," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
In the United States, turmeric is not just used in the form of dietary supplements. It has also long been used in cereals, cheese, chips, butter and other products. The country's Food and Drug Administration has declared turmeric, including its key ingredient curcumin, to be generally regarded as safe or GRAS. The spice was initially adopted by yoga communities, but it has continued to become one of the major household ingredients. Restaurant chefs across the United States are also using the spice for cooking a wide variety of dishes.
Consumers can purchase dried or ground turmeric or the capsules, which are often utilized by those who take it for health purposes. There are quite a number of turmeric supplements available nowadays, and choosing the right one can be challenging. Experts suggest consumers exercise prudent care in selecting the right product.
There are several ways to make a wise and well-informed decision when buying turmeric supplements. Consumers can do their research and check out which herbal company has the reputation of selling high quality supplements. They can also view the product label and see to it that they understand what the ingredients are for. Some experts also suggest that consumers choose turmeric supplements that contain a black pepper extract known as BioPerine, which promotes maximum nutrient absorption (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI/).
