When it comes to massive marketing of products, nothing compares to the pharmaceutical industry.
Worldwide pharmaceutical revenues topped $1.25 trillion in 2019, increasing from $390 billion back in 2001.
Clearly, incessant advertising in every form of media known to man, swaying doctors, strongly influencing (aka designing) the curriculums in our medical and nursing schools, and basically owning the mainstream media works.
But there’s a dirty little secret behind every single pharmaceutical drug that you hear communicated very rapidly in drug commercials as you’re looking at the smiling, happy actors on the screen…
The reason for that is ALL drugs are chemicals that your body was never meant to ingest! And they achieve their desired result by shutting down, destroying, blocking, or otherwise impairing one or more of your body’s innate functions, chemicals, processes or systems.
Putting it bluntly, we can’t outsmart Nature, no matter how hard we try, and when we mess around with it, it backfires on us.
But when you instead USE the power of Nature to help or support your body’s healthy functioning, you can feel a whole lot better, and help to fight or prevent disease!
And one superstar of Nature that continues to support strong health in a myriad of ways is…
Here’s the scoop:
A L-O-N-G history of creating health
Although there is evidence that turmeric was used as far back as 6,000 BC as a remedy for jaundice and leprosy, this humble spice has truly come into its own over the last few decades.
In fact, turmeric’s therapeutic properties have been the subject of over 12,000 peer-reviewed studies!
That’s about 12,000 more than any drug pumped out by Merck, Glaxo Smith Kline or Pfizer.
And get this—even pharma-sponsored WebMD acknowledges turmeric’s potential health-enhancing properties!
Here are some of the awesome benefits of this wonder spice:
1- Better skin
Turmeric is a very effective anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. As such, studies are suggesting that it can help prevent cell damage, support healthy collagen and enhance wound healing.
In addition, turmeric has been shown to help treat other skin issues including psoriasis!
2- Less joint pain
Turmeric’s anti-inflammatory properties are a superstar here too, and can help ease the pain associated with inflammatory conditions like arthritis.
As a matter of fact, some studies have shown it to be MORE effective at reducing joint swelling and tenderness than diclofenac sodium—a common arthritis medication!
3- Improved mood
A review of six studies published in the Journal of the American Medical Directors Association found that turmeric was effective at reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety within just four to eight weeks!
Although this is impressive, it’s no mystery. Studies are showing that inflammation and depression are closely linked. Since turmeric helps reduce inflammation, it can help with mental health too!
Plus, turmeric can also help increase your body’s level of DHA, which is an Omega-3 fatty acid that is vital for proper brain function.
4- Weight loss
Turmeric has been shown in studies to help boost fat-burning!
In addition, in an animal study conducted at York University, turmeric was shown to help limit weight gain and the growth of fat tissue in rats.
5- Fight autoimmune inflammation
Turmeric can help relieve inflammation by blocking the activity of several enzymes involved in the inflammatory process.
This is especially important to people with autoimmune conditions such as Crohn’s, colitis, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and MS—all diseases that are characterized by chronic inflammation.
6- Blood sugar control
Research shows that turmeric can help maintain proper blood sugar levels by increasing insulin secretion by the pancreas and supporting the absorption of glucose out of the bloodstream into the cells.
But wait! There’s more!
Turmeric has also been shown to help inhibit virus-induced inflammatory “cytokine storms.”
Cytokines are proteins that regulate the intensity and duration of immune responses. So when you trigger an inflammatory cytokine STORM, you are faced with inflammation on the warpath.
And it is this “cytokine storm” that arises in severe COVID-19 cases, and plays a significant role in the fatalities from the virus.
But turmeric’s natural anti-inflammatory actions can help “calm the storm” and stack the deck in your favor toward healing and recovery.
In addition, studies have shown that turmeric can be used to help counteract pneumonia, acute lung injury and acute respiratory distress resulting from coronavirus infections.
Embrace the power of turmeric!
When it comes to turmeric, there are two ways that you can get it—in your diet and supplementation.
Unfortunately, the amount of turmeric you would get from eating Indian cuisine and other spicy foods is not nearly what your body needs to counteract an inflammation avalanche.
So, supplementation is the best way to make sure you’ve got therapeutic levels of turmeric!
That’s why I designed and created our very own Optimal Turmeric Blend.
There are many turmeric supplements out there, but they are not all created equal! Experts state that a quality supplement should contain at least 500 milligrams of curcumin per dose and should be fully standardized to 95 percent curcuminoids.
The best supplements should also contain black pepper fruit extract, which helps enhance absorption of the soothing turmeric.
And Optimal Turmeric Blend fits the bill in all cases! And the turmeric is organic to boot!
I personally take Optimal Turmeric Blend every day to help fight and tame inflammation from my long runs and intense karate workouts! At age 57 I’m certainly no spring chicken, but thanks to Optimal Turmeric Blend I sure feel like I am!
Give it a try and see all it can do for YOU!
To your health,
