Turmeric is a traditional Indian culinary spice and Ayurvedic medicine that has been used for numerous purposes. Specifically, Turmeric roots (and the curcuminoids within) are used for dealing with inflammation related to injury or arthritis.
Curcumin (which gives the the capsules the yellow color and is the main constituent of turmeric) is a potent and biologically active antioxidant. It also inhibits other acids and enzymes that support inflammation. So, it is a strong dietary supplement because the anti-oxidants help to heal injured cells and it regulates your body’s inflammatory response in a natural way.
For a quality curcumin supplement, you want to look for something that is standardized to no less than 95% curcuminoids. You also want to make sure the standardized amount is still high. Some curcumin on the market may start with a high amount, but the actual amount available for absorption is significantly lower.
Another common component of a curcumin supplement is black pepper extract or BioPerine® . This typically helps with absorption, as many curcumin supplements on the market are not high-quality enough to be easily absorbed by your body. This supplement DOES NOT contain either of these because it is very high-quality and not necessary. In fact, Curcumin C3 Complex (the curcumin contained in this supplement) has been the subject of many clinical studies and is the ONLY turmeric chosen by the National Cancer Institute for clinical studies.
We like to practice what we preach here at Gaspar’s Best. John Bellitti, the owner and a pharmacist at our affiliate pharmacy (HB Pharmacy), had back surgery for a herniated disk when he was younger. John still likes to exercise and stay active, but is sometimes limited by inflammation swelling in his lower back. John began taking 2 Gaspar’s Best Curcumin Complex pills at bedtime the night before exercising and sometimes after exercising on a particularly strenuous day. This supplement has significantly improved his ability to exercise normally and reduced the pain he experiences from exercising. Now, this doesn’t mean that you will experience the same results. Every person and every condition is different. As always, what’s most important is determining the root cause of your pain. If your pain is strictly an inflammatory issue, then we highly recommend giving our supplement a try.
