Benefits of Turmeric Curcumin Root Powder Supplements

Nearly every day a couple of clients probe me with the question of which supplements have proven health benefits.

For the last couple of months, I have written articles on other supplements until I realized that these special supplements could not be omitted in my list. 


These are the supplements from the turmeric plant. Tumeric ( Curcuma longa L.),  have been widely used as medicine and spices in curry for over 2500 years especially in the Asian continent. However, lately it has also been incorporated in the Latin America and African cuisine.


Curcumin is the primary and the most active component of Turmeric, which gives this herbal supplement its yellow color. Nearly 700 studies that have been conducted on Turmeric globally have shown remarkable potential health benefits of organic turmeric root powder supplements.  Therefore, this article will precisely outline some of the health benefits of low dose supplement of organic turmeric root powder supplements.

A Low Dose Of Curcumin is Very Effective

These benefits are results of an empirical experiment that was conducted on healthy middle-aged people (40-60 years old) with a low dose of curcumin (80mg/day) in a fat soluble form that eased absorption process.  Blood and saliva samples were taken and analyzed to find the potential health benefits of curcumin for four weeks. Unlike other studies, which uses people with health issues or animals, this particular study used the healthy middle-aged people.

Benefits of Turmeric Curcumin For The Heart

Curcumin found in organic turmeric root powder supplements produced positive results on saliva and plasma measurement that are crucial for optimal health. The supplements lowered the plasma triglyceride values but did not affect the various cholesterol reading. This gives contradicting results compared to experimental animal studies where all various cholesterol readings are affected. However, various studies suggest that turmeric root powder supplements may control cholesterol level under certain stress conditions. The lowering of triglyceride and cholesterol value by curcumin is beneficial for the heart and the circulatory system.

Cardiovascular Benefits of Turmeric Curcumin

The study also reveals that curcumins in turmeric can promote cardiovascular health. The dose of turmeric curcumin increased plasma contents of nitric oxide molecules, which shields the body against high blood pressure. The lipidated curcumin dose was also seen to lower the soluble intercellular adhesion molecule (sICAM) concentration. Lowering of sICAM molecules is important for cardiovascular defects regulation since these molecules are responsible for combating atherosclerosis, the building up of plaques that can block blood vessels and lead to stroke or heart attack.

Turmeric Curcumin Can Reduce Inflammation and Pain

Curcumin supplementation but not placebo also raised the myeloperoxidase concentrations, which is part of both normal and inflammation functions. This ability of curcumin to manage inflammation is very important to anyone engrossed in maintaining a healthy heart since inflammation is the key factor in heart diseases and the other ailments associated with it. Organic turmeric root powder supplements also provide a future promise of the fight against osteoarthritis pain. However, a more detailed analyzes need to be carried out to determine if curcumin alone can fight osteoarthritis pain or it is the combination of Turmeric components.

Turmeric Curcumin May Protect the Liver From Damages

Another major effect of curcumin is the reduction of plasma ALT activities, which are used in indicating and showing liver injuries. The results of this study are consistent with other experimental results conducted on animals with chemically induced liver injuries. The study shows that lowering of plasma ALT activities by use of organic turmeric root powder supplements can be very beneficial in heart maintenance process of healthy middle-aged people.

Turmeric Curcumin May Protect Against Alzheimer’s Disease

It would be fascinating to hear that curcumin can have a positive effect on Alzheimer’s, the deadly memory-robbing condition. A study showed a possibility of curcumin working against the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Curcumin was responsible for the decrease in plasma beta, amyloid protein concentration, which is one of the components that cause the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Though the percent decrease was not big, a significant decrease can occur through longer intervention and help prevent neurodegenerative diseases.

Turmeric Curcumin is A Powerful Anti-Oxidant in Low Doses

 Curcumin has great potential to scavenge free radicals and reactive species. A low dose of curcumin showed both direct and indirect antioxidant actions among the healthy middle-aged people.  The various experiments that have been conducted suggest that an increase in plasma activity level is important in fighting cardiovascular diseases. This also suggests that the antioxidant properties of curcumin could help prevent various types of cancer.

Prevention Is the Most Effective Action Against Diseases

One study suggests that organic turmeric root powder supplements have powerful health benefits. These health benefits include protection of cardiovascular system and brain, decrease in cell death and free radical damage, triggering of tumor cell death among others. The supplements are not only useful for people with health issues but also on healthy middle-aged people.


FOOD IS YOUR MEDICINE. Adding some peperine, a tiny dash of black pepper to Turmeric root powder boosts the health effects of curcumins according to latest research by up to 2000%. As a herbal remedy Turmeric curcumin has been found to be safe in very large doses, which are often unnecessary, since combination of Turmeric root powder mixed with black pepper is very effective and potent in low amounts used to make turmeric spiced foods or herbal tea.

Turmeric has several different curcumins that are behind the most potent properties as a natural
support for the body in healing from many inflammatory ailments. Turmeric has been used as a spice, herbal supplement and herbal remedy to support heart health and to boost liver function and detox in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. 

Turmeric root powder is a very good source for minerals and vitamins like, Manganese, Iron, B6 Vitamin, Copper and Potassium, which you miss when taking supplements that contain isolated ingredients from Turmeric root powder and black pepper. Recent studies show turmeric root powder is a powerful natural antioxidant and healing remedy.
