Let’s face it, there is a vast array of turmeric capsules on the market today, with different claims on the amount and strength, so how do you select the very best?
Turmeric or more notably its main ingredient curcumin is responsible for a whole range of excellent health benefits including cancer prevention, helping to lessen the effects of Alzheimer’s, lowering cholesterol and many more.
This makes it vital to make the right choice when selecting turmeric capsules to benefit from its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
They can range in strength from 10mg to 600mg or more but the key here is delivery and combination. Let me explain.
Regarding delivery, most on the market have veggie caps which dissolve in the stomach and therefore most of the benefits are lost as they don’t enter the bloodstream. You need an enteric coating so it can pass unscathed through the stomach and into the upper intestine where all the benefits are realized.
As long as it contains at least 95% pure curcumin extract than 50mg is perfect, and be aware that many turmeric capsules do not have this pure form.
With regard to combination there are many nutrients that are synergistic with turmeric and will greatly enhance its performance.
To illustrate the most important one, when combined with piperine, from black pepper, turmeric absorption increases by up to 2000%! So no high doses are necessary. It also mixes well with green tea and ginkgo biloba extract to increase its anti-aging and cancer preventing abilities.
When these ingredients are put together they create synergy, which means you get the direct benefits of each nutrient and the benefits from their interaction with each other.
So you can see how vital it is to get the best type of supplement so you can gain all of the amazing health benefits, especially in a good quality multi supplement.
You simply won’t get this from standalone turmeric capsules, as it is money down the drain.
We all want to live longer healthier lives and this is now possible thanks to the right dietary supplements, so make it a point to select carefully and using the tactics I have outlined, you will reap the most rewards.
