Why Turmeric?

For thousands of years Turmeric has been valued in Ayurveda, the traditional medicine system of India. Today, science has identified compounds in Turmeric, curcumins in particular, that support healthy inflammatory function— maintaining overall health and vitality.* The Turmeric Supreme family of products represents full Curcumin Synergy™ with optimal absorption for a healthy inflammatory response.*

Turmeric is commonly used to support the body from head to toe.* Turmeric:

  • supports a healthy inflammatory response, both every day and after a workout.*
  • maintains healthy levels of triglycerides (a type of lipid) in the blood.*
  • supports normal bile production in the liver.*
  • naturally stimulates the liver, as a bitter herb.*
  • supports digestion of fats by promoting healthy function of the gallbladder, whose enzymes are essential for breaking down that macronutrient.*
  • supports a healthy response to occasional pain.*
  • supports the production of proteins that naturally regulate immune cells.*
  • helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels already within normal ranges.*
  • supports the body’s natural detoxification pathways.*
  • promotes healthy cardiovascular function.*
  • helps support healthy neurological function.*

The fat-soluble active components of Turmeric, including its essential oils, need to pass the blood-brain barrier to offer neurological support as well as support for any of the other targeted areas we mentioned above.

An extract (such as a Liquid Phyto-Cap) provides a concentrated, potent serving designed for specific, targeted support. In addition to whole root Turmeric, Gaia’s Turmeric Supreme Extra Strength  also contains Turmeric extract and black pepper, which allows it to cross through the gut lining and offer support in specific areas in a short amount of time.*
