Each evening, my husband and I savor the comforting warmth of two cups of Golden Turmeric. This blend of smooth mango rose brings us joy while we sip, then it gets busy restoring multiple systems while we sleep.
It has become a cherished ritual, shared in togetherness, that truly enhances our overall well-being.
Why do we love it so much?
Because the benefits of turmeric are CRAZY with over 6000 publications on this plant!

The one I love is grown in south India where the roots are harvested in a clean environment. After 10 months of growing they are manually harvested and the roots are steamed or boiled then dried and stored manually.. then the turmeric is extracted and sent to France for formulation.
The result is a seed to seal turmeric extract that is 24 times more bioavailable than your standard turmeric extract!!!

well researched benefits of Turmeric
Turmeric, the key ingredient in golden milk, is renowned for its potential health benefits. Here are some of the benefits associated with turmeric:
Curcumin, the active compound in turmeric, has shown promising anti-inflammatory effects. Consuming turmeric may help reduce inflammation in the body, which is linked to various chronic diseases.
Turmeric is rich in antioxidants that neutralize harmful free radicals in the body. These antioxidants may help protect against cellular damage and support overall well-being.
Turmeric has traditionally been used to support digestive health. It may help alleviate symptoms of indigestion and promote a healthy gut.
Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric may also support joint health by reducing inflammation and easing discomfort.
Research suggests that curcumin in turmeric may have positive effects on brain health. It may help improve memory, mood, and overall cognitive function.
Curcumin has strong anti-inflammatory effects and may help reduce chronic inflammation, which is believed to contribute to many chronic diseases.
Turmeric is a potent antioxidant, helping to neutralize harmful free radicals and protect cells from oxidative damage.
Some studies suggest that turmeric can be as effective as over-the-counter pain relievers in managing pain, especially in conditions like arthritis.
Turmeric's anti-inflammatory properties may help alleviate symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, improving joint function and reducing pain.
It may also help reduce symptoms of indigestion and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Curcumin may improve heart health by improving the function of the lining of blood vessel), reducing inflammation, and lowering blood pressure.
Some studies suggest that curcumin can increase brain levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). Neurotrophic factors are of great interest in neuroscience and neurology because of their potential therapeutic applications. They are being studied for their ability to promote nerve regeneration after injuries, protect neurons from degenerative diseases (such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease), and enhance the recovery of function in various neurological conditions.
Turmeric supports a growth hormone that functions in the brain. This may delay or even reverse brain diseases and age-related decreases in brain function.
While more research is needed, some studies have shown that curcumin may inhibit the growth of cancer cells and prevent the spread of tumors.
Turmeric has been used traditionally for skin conditions. It may help improve the appearance of acne, eczema, and psoriasis when applied topically.
Curcumin may help lower blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity, potentially aiding in the management of diabetes.
Immune System Support
The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric may boost the immune system, helping the body fight off infections and illnesses.
Turmeric may support liver health by enhancing the detoxification process and reducing liver inflammation.
It's important to note that while turmeric offers numerous potential health benefits, the bioavailability of curcumin (the active compound) can be low.
