Let’s Talk Curcumin
As we age we want to ensure that we are winning the battle against inflammation. Now inflammation isn’t bad at first. It’s your body’s way of protecting itself from outside invaders and that’s a good thing. Thats when it’s considered acute inflammation and it’s very short-lived, meaning it doesn’t stay in your body for long.
But there are cases where the body makes too much inflammation and sometimes receives false signals that it needs to when it doesn’t and that’s not a good thing. This is called chronic inflammation and as the word suggests, it becomes ongoing.
Inflammation can cause a litany of issues when out of control. Some of the early signs can consist of joint swelling, pain, and stiffness to name a few. It can impact your muscles and most definitely your immune system causing flu-like symptoms as well. The longer (chronic) you let it go on the results to your health can be detrimental. We are talking about various forms of arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, and even the Big C. So don’t take it lightly.
But all isn’t lost. Like anything, being proactive can prevent things like inflammation build up in the body. For centuries the use of Turmeric has been a staple in some cultures. Especially for cooking. It adds flavors and color to dishes. I know I cook with it almost every day. It just so happens that a very important property of Turmeric helps combat the body’s build-up of inflammation. That property is Curcumin. I love to cook with both Turmeric, Curcumin, and black pepper to add more to my system but it’s not enough. For the amounts we need to deal with inflammation, I always suggest to my clients Source of Life Garden Curcumin. I supplement with it every day.
My clients who are recovering from injuries have all experienced quicker healing time and reduced swelling in joints as well. And if you have any foreign bodies in your body say from surgeries like pens or stables, etc, then consider that your body is constantly attacking them causing inflammation. I know about this first hand as I have had my share of surgeries and have pins in my bicep from rupturing one of my tendons as well as ulnar relocation in one arm. To this day I can still feel the areas and periodic inflammation build up and myofascial hardening. So I make sure to keep Curmin in my system as well as monthly maintenance visit my ART for some Graston release.
Give it a try and feel the difference.
