Turmeric- The natural pain and inflammation reliever

By Judi-Ann Smith Lindeli

For thousands of years all across the world, we know that Ginger is one of the most healing roots; it helps with colds, upset stomach and nausea. Did you know that turmeric can help with those things too and also pain and inflammation?

This mysterious root that we mostly hear about (commonly found as an ingredient in our curry) on the outside looks like your typical ginger, but when you cut into it, there is this vibrant orange color. In Ayurvedic medicine, they call turmeric “The Queen of All Herbs”.

This beautiful root is used in Japan and China for its powerful yet safe balancing and liver detoxification. They juice this root daily for all of its healing properties. This is essential for all of us “Liquor Connoisseurs” out there before and after a night on the town!

In turmeric, the active ingredient is called Curcumin. This helps your body with inflammation or swelling due to Stress, Overwork or Overuse of muscles and Injury. When we say we are in pain, majority of the time it is due to a swelling of some sort: joint pain such as swollen knees, sore back, or as simple as a headache.

Here at Umeke, we highly recommend the following (3) top sellers, which contain Turmeric:

1. Curamin - by Eurofarma

(2) capsules contain a whopping 1,005 mg of curcumin, and curcuminoid. These active ingredients get right into the sections of your body, which cause pinching, or swelling and immediately brings it down.

Curamin can combat chronic arthritis, back and knee pains due to overuse or injury.

2. Turmeric Force - by New Chapter

an organic soft gel capsule, which is a “Supercritical” extract. This means your body will absorb all of what it needs to take care of inflammation and pain. Tumericforce is great for headaches, migraines and your joint problems. I personally use this and its replaced my Aleve that I used to carry in my bag every day.

3. Turmeric Tea - by Dr. Andrew Weil and Ito en

a Japanese tea brewed from the turmeric root in highly purified water. This liquid elixir is a powerful antioxidant that supports gastrointestinal health, healthy heart and healthy nervous system. I personally drink this tea right after a great workout for better recovery time. It really gets rid of my lactic acid build up and minimizes dehydration in my system.

The most exciting feed back from our customers and staff alike is that they are finding positive results. One of our long time customers commented that just standing too long made her back pains unbearable. For years she took Tylenol, Advil and multiple doses of Aleve daily. After taking “Curamin,” by Eurofarma, her back pain is gone not within days but hours!

Come in and ask us about Turmeric products from liquid to pill.

Make it A Healthy Day!!!!
