this ingredient

Turmeric root extract, derived from the Curcuma longa plant, has been used for centuries in traditional medicine due to its potential health benefits. The primary active compound in turmeric root extract is curcumin, which is known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and a whole host of other benefits including:

  1. Anti-inflammatory effects: Curcumin has been shown to have potent anti-inflammatory properties helping to reduce inflammation in the body, which is associated with various chronic conditions such as arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and certain types of cancer.
  2. Antioxidant activity: Turmeric root extract possesses strong antioxidant properties that help neutralise harmful free radicals in the body. This antioxidant activity may help protect cells and tissues from oxidative damage, which is linked to aging, chronic diseases, and neurodegenerative disorders.
  3. Joint health: The anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric root extract may benefit individuals with joint conditions like arthritis. Some studies suggest that curcumin supplementation could reduce joint pain, swelling, and stiffness, potentially improving overall joint health and mobility.
  4. Digestive health: Turmeric root extract may aid in digestive health by stimulating the production of bile, which aids in the digestion of fats. It may also help reduce symptoms of digestive disorders such as bloating, gas, and indigestion.
  5. Brain health: Curcumin has been studied for its potential neuroprotective effects. It may cross the blood-brain barrier and exhibit antioxidant and anti-inflammatory actions in the brain, which could have implications for cognitive health and potentially reduce the risk of neurodegenerative conditions like Alzheimer’s disease.
  6. Heart health: Some research suggests that turmeric root extract may have cardiovascular benefits. It may help improve blood vessel function, reduce inflammation in blood vessels, and lower cholesterol levels, thus promoting heart health.
  7. Skin health: The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric root extract contributes to improved skin health and has been studied for its potential in managing skin conditions like acne, eczema, psoriasis, and wound healing.
The benefits of curcuma root extract for women’s health

Curcuma root extract – an extract from the turmeric plant’s underground stem and has been celebrated for centuries as both a spice and a medicine. As a part of the ancient Indian system of healing in ‘Ayurvedic’ medicine, use of the turmeric plant goes as far back as 2500 B.C.

Extensive scientific study has revealed it’s the curcumin in the turmeric plant rhizome (underground stem) that has the powerful health benefits, proven to aid in the management of oxidative and inflammatory conditions, arthritis, anxiety, and high cholesterol. It can also help in the management of exercise-induced inflammation and muscle soreness therefore enhancing the recovery and performance in active people.

The extract is also beneficial to skin, not only does it soothe and calm any signs of flare-ups in redness and skin irritation that many with sensitive skin types are prone to, it can also help those with acne-prone skin by regulating the skin’s natural production of sebum, this makes it easier to combat breakouts, with the high amount of antioxidant properties there will be a boost in brightness and radiance to skin.

In addition, a relatively low dose of the extract can provide added health benefits for people that do not have diagnosed health conditions, these benefits can be attributed to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
