Turmeric + Black Pepper = Inflammation Fighting POWERHOUSE 💥
Did you know Turmeric is a multi-functioning hero for your body? 😯
Turmeric has LOADS of health benefits, but here are a handful of my favorites:
- The main active ingredient in Turmeric is Curcumin - Curcumin gives off powerful Anti-Inflammatory effects, while also serving as a strong Antioxidant.
- Additionally, Curcumin promotes production of a neural process called Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), which can increase growth of new neurons, can help to fight various degenerative processes in your brain, can improve overall brain function, and can even help improve some of the neurologic changes in those with depression!
- As if Curcumin wasn't already good enough, it may also be able to lower your risk of Heart Disease by improving the function of the part of your heart that lines your blood vessels.
- The anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin have been shown to help treat symptoms of arthritis.
Unfortunately, one "serving" of turmeric won't give you your daily dose of Curcumin. In order to experience the full effects that Turmeric/Curcumin have to offer, you can take a supplement to fill in the gaps! 😋
One of my all-time favorite supplements has to be my 🌟 Garden of Life Turmeric Gummies 🌟 I can't get enough! 🧡
Every day four times a day, I take one of my Turmeric gummies, and let me tell you... I am already feeling the benefits! 😍
One of the ingredients listed on the label of the Turmeric Gummies is "Organic Black Pepper Fruit." Black Pepper is proven to improve the overall effects of Turmeric due to the Piperine in the pepper. Piperine helps to significantly increase the absorption of Curcumin. When you combine the Curcumin in the Turmeric and the Piperine in the Black Pepper, they become a powerful inflammation-fighting powerhouse that can help reduce your discomfort and pain! 💥
Not a fan of gummy supplements? 😢 No problem! 😄 Garden of Life also offers a capsule version of the gummy for those who would prefer to take that! 💞
Check out both the Turmeric Gummies and Turmeric Supplements on my Amazon Store HERE, after you take the first one and you feel so AH-MAZING afterwards, you seriously won't look back!! 😍😍😍
