How can one spice offer so many health benefits and yet so few medical professionals talk about it? For thousands of years turmeric and its derivative curcumin have been used to relieve suffering, and in fact is one of the most important cornerstones of Ayuvedic medicine.
- Curcumin is one of nature’s most powerful anti-inflammatories
- Turmeric offers enhanced anti-oxidant capabilities to protect vital tissues from damaging free radicals
- Curcumin protects cardiovascular tissue and can improve circulatory function
- Turmeric enhances digestive function and helps protect against infection and infestation of the gut
- Curcumin boosts brain-derived neurotrophic factor, linked to improved brain function and a lower risk of brain diseases
- Turmeric helps to boost the immune system, building defences against common diseases
- Curcumin may help delay ageing and fight age-related chronic diseases
Those of you who enjoy Asian food, and in particular the curry lovers amongst you, will be no strangers to turmeric as it is one of the main ingredients used to flavour and colour food from this region.
Apart from the uses as spice, it is used as traditional medicine in Asian countries such as India, Bangladesh and Pakistan because of its beneficial properties(1) which have been recognised and enjoyed for thousands of years.
A cautionary tale...
In modern times there has been something of an explosion in interest in turmeric with companies all trying to get in on the act for this natural compound.
For instance there has been the ‘golden milk’ or ‘golden latte’ craze amongst the global coffee shop owners, where they claim that by introducing turmeric into their brews they are offering true health in a cup...
...however, whilst golden milk has been a mainstay of Indian medicine for centuries, the modern commercial equivalent is far removed from traditional haldi doodh, and it doesn’t come even vaguely close to offering the same remedial properties.
In the true version less than half a cup of piping hot milk is mixed with a full teaspoon of turmeric powder or grated fresh root, and a pinch of black pepper added. The resulting mix is a vibrant yellow rather than just a faint colouring. Variants on this include using tea or honey as a medium for the turmeric, also common in Ayuvedic medicine... adding a pinch of turmeric to coffee really doesn’t even come close.
Understanding how the body utilises turmeric/curcumin effectively and efficiently is what separates those who truly understand how this spice gives benefit from those who simply want to cash in on media hype.
This is why you need a very special preparation as your essential supplement...

Why choose Together Health?
Most people choose their supplement suppliers based upon the price they pay – often choosing the absolute cheapest option in the belief that all supplements are the same...
...but in most cases they may as well be throwing their money down the drain, because this is where the majority of those supplements will end up.
You see our bodies are very discerning about what they allow into them, and only the best will do – just because it says turmeric on the pack doesn’t mean that this will enter the bloodstream where it’s beneficial effects can be delivered throughout the body.

What the scientists say...
Like most natural remedies and supplements there isn’t a huge amount of scientific research undertaken as none of the big companies stand to benefit from doing it – but turmeric and curcumin have been extensively researched and here are a few of the conclusions reached:
“Turmeric has shown beneficial effects on major digestive tract organs such as the stomach, intestine, pancreas & liver, offering protection against infection and ulceration as well as boosting performance in digestion and absorption of key nutrients.“ Chattopadhyay I, Biswas K, Bandyopadhyay U, Banerjee RK. Turmeric and curcumin: Biological actions and medicinal applications. Curr Sci India 2004;87:44-53.
“Numerous animal studies have shown the potential of this spice against pro-inflammatory diseases (such as arthritis and auto-immune conditions like lupus), neurodegenerative diseases, depression, diabetes, obesity, and atherosclerosis.” Gupta, S. C., Sung, B., Kim, J. H., Prasad, S., Li, S., & Aggarwal, B. B. (2013). Multi-targeting by turmeric, the golden spice: From kitchen to clinic. Molecular nutrition & food research, 57(9), 1510-1528.
“Curcumin has been demonstrated to be safe in six human trials and has demonstrated anti-inflammatory activity. It may exert its anti-inflammatory activity by inhibition of a number of different molecules that play a role in inflammation.” Chainani-Wu, N. (2003). Safety and anti-inflammatory activity of curcumin: a component of tumeric (Curcuma longa). The Journal of Alternative & Complementary Medicine, 9(1), 161-168.
“The methanolic extract of the plant exhibited significant inhibitory actions against Escherichia coli, Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, Bacillus cereus, Micrococcus, Pseudomonas, Aspergillus and Penicillium. The plant extract compared favourably with the standard antibiotic used.” Ikpeama, A., Onwuka, G. I., & Nwankwo, C. (2014). Nutritional composition of Tumeric (Curcuma longa) and its antimicrobial properties. International J Scien Eng Res, 5(10), 1085-1089.
