learn about Turmeric and Inflammation

Turmeric and Inflammation.  As I’ve stated in the past, supplements and natural wellness are very popular in the U.S. today.  In fact leading experts expect profits from supplement sales to double between 2012 and 2020.  And like it or not, this really is a double edged sword.  On one hand it gives you free access to an amazing way to support health and wellness.  However, many corporations profit by selling products with false claims.  Today, we will explore a popular supplement many tout for inflammation.  And of course I’ll cover the latest research behind it.

Did you know that many Americans turn to turmeric as the go to supplement for inflammation?  In fact many people use it for both chronic inflammation and for swelling from injuries.  However, according to the NCCI*, extensive research shows turmeric doesn’t help in either case.  What’s more, this research looked at over 579 strong nation-wide studies.  These studies “cannot support claims that turmeric helps to reduce inflammation.”  So where exactly did this information come from?  You can find this research in PubMed and was published in 2013.  Of course it’s also important to realize that chronic inflammation can lead to many serious illnesses.  Which ones?  These ailments include type 2 diabetes, cancer, digestive problems and arthritis.

Support Healthy Inflammation Levels

So just what is the key to supporting healthy inflammation levels?  First of all, It’s important to realize that inflammation is a necessary part of our health.  As a matter of fact it is crucial in the early stages of wound healing.  On the other hand, chronic inflammation is a problem that plagues most Americans.  Why?  For starters, you can thank the all mighty SAD.  But just what is SAD?  It stands for the Standard American Diet, which is rich in simple carbs and the wrong kinds of fibers.  “SADly” (pun intended) this contributes to the very problem.  Another problem is that many Americans are deficient in the vital enzymes required to control and counter the inflammation process.  Through a combination of dietary changes, and the proper enzyme supplements we can support a healthy inflammatory response.
