Progressive Curcumin Turmeric, 30 Capsules
What is Turmeric?
Turmeric contains potent antioxidant chemicals, known as curcuminoids. They assist the body in neutralizing free radicals and help protect the liver from harmful toxins.
These same molecules have also proven to inhibit inflammation, thus acting as pain relieving agents. Turmeric has been shown to improve joint mobility and reduce the pain and swelling associated with all forms of arthritis. This activity is equivalent to the effect of some NSAID drugs.
Turmeric also lowers the level of harmful, or LDL, cholesterol and increases the level of helpful, or HDL, cholesterol. As well as improves circulation and blood flow. All of these properties make turmeric a good choice for individuals with compromised circulation, heart disease and high cholesterol.
What is an Antioxidant?
Antioxidants are nutrients that help to protect your body from the damage caused by free radicals - the toxic molecules that play a role in the development of diseases from cataracts to heart disease to arthritis. While our bodies produce some of these free radicals as the "garbage" from some its natural processes, we are now exposed to more and more of them from our environment than ever before.
The chemical pollution of our air and water now leave us exposed to very powerful free radicals that we have never been exposed to in the past. In combination with the nutrient depletion of our foods from modern chemical agriculture, we now also get less of the important nutrients from it that would normally help our immune systems fight these chemical invaders. This is why many nutritional doctors recommend their patients take supplements of antioxidants.
How Antioxidants Protect Your Cells:
When a free radical enters your body, it is attracted to the cells that make up the different tissues of it just like a magnet to metal. It then bonds to parts of the cell, which causes it to deteriorate in a way similar to that which oxygen causes metal to rust. If the cell gets damaged enough, it dies. Worse yet, if the cell DNA is damaged and then the cell reproduces, it reproduces abnormally as a result. When this happens to our skin, we get wrinkles; when it happens to our oxygen carrying blood vessels, we get hardening of the arteries; when it happens to our joints, we get arthritis.
Antioxidants work by bonding with the free radical before it can bond to the cells of your body, thus neutralizing it. This now harmless substance is then deconstructed or merely excreted.
Common Disorders Caused By Oxidative Damage
Cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, wrinkles, premature aging, cardiovascular disease are all affected and exacerbated by oxidative damage to different parts of the body. It is now widely accepted even among mainstream practitioners that free radical damage is a major cause of these diseases.
