Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/26/2015 -- The use of natural ingredients has been widely popular for the past few decades. This is due to the increasing prevalence of diseases that are preventable through a healthy diet and lifestyle. One of the most popular natural ingredients is a spice called turmeric.
Turmeric continues to dominate the international market. This ancient, medicinal spice has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. It is a kitchen ingredient that adds flavor and color to dishes and beverages, as well as a medicinal spice that is believed to fight a range of medical conditions.
"Today, turmeric can be used in a powder form or through supplementation," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
Curcumin supplements are widely available nowadays, and they can even be purchased in just a matter of clicks. Curcumin is a powerful phytochemical found in turmeric that contains a range of therapeutic properties. It is widely popularized by the antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties it contains.
People use turmeric powder when preparing a variety of delectable dishes and beverages. However, it is also used for medicinal purposes. It can be made into a paste to fight skin diseases and heal burns. The use of this spice is associated with a myriad of health benefits.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture reveals that 1.2 pounds of spices were used in the United States in 1996. However, by 2012, that number skyrocketed into 3.4 pounds. There are many spices available nowadays that are also believed to be therapeutic. What makes turmeric so unique is that it is believed to be the most widely-studied spice in the whole world.
According to research, the availability of turmeric per capita reached almost 70 percent from 2004 to 2011. This spice is believed to be very helpful for fighting inflammation-related ailments, such as arthritis. Curcumin supplements are even widely used by arthritis sufferers nowadays who reported that the natural alternative can help reduce pain and inflammation, and improve their mobility. It has become an excellent natural alternative to pain relief drugs such as NSAIDs. The use of these pain relievers has been associated with side effects, and this is why more and more people are using curcumin supplements.
Curcumin supplements are very popular natural alternatives nowadays. Many people rely on this supplement to improve their immunity against a range of diseases. Instead of incorporating turmeric powder in their diet, they simply take curcumin supplements to obtain the spice's therapeutic effects.
Today, the most popular curcumin supplements are those that contain a black pepper extract called BioPerine. Curcumin has low bioavailability, but when it's combined with BioPerine, the delivery of its therapeutic properties inside the body becomes efficient (amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Extract-Vegetarian/dp/B00VSVKJ8I).
