Naturally occurring supplements such as herbs and spices sometimes hold amazing benefits that promote a more healthy, balanced life. With more and more research surrounding the substances our ancestors and other cultures have used for thousands of years, it's no wonder one specific spice has gained popularity over the last 10 years. That's right, we're talkin' turmeric. This root, which has been used in Indian culture for centuries to give curry its yellow color, yields some amazing properties which not many of us are taking advantage of. Let's take a closer look at what makes turmeric so special and why we've included it at an optimal ratio in our Grass-Fed Bone Broth Collagen.

To warm things up, turmeric may behave as a very powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants work in the body to fight free radicals which can help combat aging and potentially ward off certain illnesses. Turmeric may support the body's stimulation of its own antioxidant enzymes, which again helps with overall health. Aside from the antioxidant properties, turmeric has been shown to support anti-inflammatory effects in the body that may help nearly everyone live a more healthy life.

According to MedicalNewsToday*, long term (chronic) inflammation can cause cancer, heart disease, liver disease, and a myriad of other life threatening illnesses. Studies also indicate that curcumin, the active compound found in turmeric, works to block inflammation on the molecular level with little to no side effects, and that curcumin acts as an anticoagulant, reducing the risk of blood clots. Again, what sets turmeric apart is that there seems to be comparatively fewer side effects unless taken in very excessive amounts.

Lastly, studies have shown that turmeric may support healthy insulin levels, helping to burn body fat while still gaining muscle. Although the studies around this are still somewhat unproven, the additional benefits of turmeric mentioned above alone warrant its daily use. If it does indeed increase insulin sensitivity, then praise the health gods, this spice is gold! With all this information now at your fingertips, the choice to add this beneficial spice to your daily regimen lies with you.
