The Benefits of Tumeric

I really missed my Turmeric in my supplement holiday since May.  I just began it again because my stomach is quieting down and in under 24 hours noticed an improvement.  Even with all the benefits, do not overdose.  It can thin you blood and other things.  But this marvelous herb addresses 1500 different health conditions including cancer.

Turmeric has been used in cooking and  natural health for centuries, solidifying its well-deserved status as a  superfood ingredient. Not only has it been shown to support a healthy  response to inflammation,  recent research has unearthed several other  potential benefits of turmeric capsules for the skin, mind and other  areas of the body.

Best of all, because it’s now available in convenient capsule form — including our own Turmeric Capsules — adding turmeric to your daily routine has never been easier.

So what are the benefits of taking  turmeric capsules, and how much should you take to get the most bang for  your buck? Let’s take a closer look.

What Are Turmeric Capsules?

Turmeric capsules are exactly what  they sound like: The spice turmeric in capsule form. This spice comes  from the turmeric flowering plant.

Selecting high-quality turmeric  curcumin capsules can maximize the potential health benefits of your  supplement and ensure you get the most for your money. Ideally, look for  a supplement that contains a high concentration of curcumin, which is  the compound responsible for the health benefits of turmeric. 

The best turmeric capsules should  also contain piperine, which is a chemical found in black pepper that  enhances curcumin absorption. While more studies need to be conducted,  one animal study indicated that the administration of piperine may  increase curcumin absorption by up to 2,000 percent.

It’s also recommended to opt for  organic turmeric capsules whenever possible and look for curcumin  capsules that have undergone fermentation, which may increase absorption  even further.

Benefits of Turmeric Capsules

Some of the top turmeric capsules benefits include:


  • Supporting healthy energy and combating fatigue
  • Supporting joint health
  • Encouraging a healthy response to stress
  • Supporting mental clarity and concentration

Here are some more benefits of turmeric capsules.

1. Supporting a Healthy Response to Inflammation

Some studies show that curcumin, the  main ingredient in turmeric, has the potential to help support a healthy  response to inflammation, which can help to support overall health. 

2. Support for Healthy Blood Sugar (already in the normal range)

Some research also shows turmeric capsules may support already healthy blood sugar levels. 

3. Mental Clarity Support

In addition to their effects on  physical well-being, some research has found that turmeric capsules  could help support mental clarity as well. Turmeric can also help  support healthy levels of DHA, which is an omega-3 fatty acid closely  involved in supporting healthy brain function.

4. Joint Health Support

Studies show that curcumin can act to support joint health and  and may play a central role in joint comfort.

5. Healthy Weight Management

While more studies need to be  conducted, an animal model conducted at York University showed that  curcumin was able to support healthy weight management in rats. It’s  also been shown to help study participants manage their healthy weight  in human studies.

6. Skin Health Support

In recent years, a multitude of  turmeric benefits for skin have started to come to light. Because of its  beneficial properties, research suggests that turmeric could help  support healthy cells,  healthy collagen deposition and support overall  healthy skin. For these reasons, you can often find turmeric in skin  serums and cosmetics, and many people often recommend turmeric capsules  to support skin health.

How to Use

So how much turmeric should you take a  day? Is turmeric safe to take daily, or should you limit your intake to  just a few times per week instead?

Although the ideal turmeric dosage  may vary based on many different factors, research typically suggests  that you should get at least one gram of curcumin per day to promote  better health.   However, you should always read the label and follow  the suggested use/directions on the label.

In addition to turmeric capsules — such as our Turmeric Capsules  — there are several other options for getting in your daily dose.  Turmeric powder, for example, can be used to make turmeric tea or added  to dishes for a bit of extra flavor and color. 

It’s also often added to skin care products to support skin right at the source.

Other Considerations

Despite the many potential health  benefits associated with turmeric, there can be side effects, especially  when high doses are consumed or when it’s applied directly to the skin  in concentrated amounts.

It’s best to follow the  manufacturer’s guidelines for how to use turmeric and consult with your  healthcare professional prior to starting any dietary or dietary  supplement program, including turmeric capsules.
