Nature's Most Powerful Functional Food in a concentrated liquid extract
Turmeric is an excellent example of where the line between a culinary herb and a medicine is very fine. At the same time that it is adding flavor and color to your food its antioxidant properties protects our digestive systems from dietary toxins and harmful fatty acids, it assists our immune systems in fighting infections and reduces problems of excessive inflammation throughout the body. In this sense, the inclusion of Turmeric in curries in Asia was certainly not by chance, especially seeing that in hot tropical countries food becomes rancid in a matter of hours. Our Turmeric Liquid Gold is 100% pure Curcuma longa rhizome nano-particle extract and is rapidly absorbed.
Known as Kunyit in Malay / Indonesian, the rhizome of the herb Curcuma longa forms the basis of many traditional herbal systems of Southeast Asia and India. Turmeric and its active principle, curcumin, have been shown to have a wide range of therapeutic actions in both animal and human studies:
ANTIOXIDANT & ANTI-CANCER
The antioxidant and anti-cancer effects of Curcumin have been exciting scientific researchers for many years with several thousand clinical and laboratory studies to date. Numerous studies have also shown the cancer preventing action of curcumin in the following cancers; cervical, stomach, duodenal, colon, breast and skin, with an additional increase in the cancer-killing effects of radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Every month more than a dozen new studies are published in scientific journals making this one of the most well-researched antioxidant and anti-cancer herbs in the world.

In India, Turmeric is used traditionally for arthritis and asthma, with villagers consuming the powdered spice by the teaspoon during attacks. Research has found that Curcumin reduces inflammation both due to its antihistaminic action as well as by increasing the production of natural cortisone from the adrenal glands. In two double blind studies it was found to possess strong anti-inflammatory properties on patients with rheumatoid arthritis as well as for alleviating post-surgical inflammation.
Traditionally in Asia, Turmeric is used for indigestion, jaundice, liver and gallbladder disorders. Studies have shown that curcumin possesses properties that protect the liver from a number of toxic compounds. Turmeric also has a strong effect on promoting bile flow and while it is helpful to prevent gallbladder disease, it should be used with caution in gallstones. Liver damage due to food poisoning was also reversed. In a double blind study in Thailand, Turmeric was studies for its effects on relieving indigestion and gas. An impressive 87 per cent of patients receiving Curcuma responded positively to the treatment, which resulted in several patent medicines for indigestion containing standardized curcumin being developed. Turmeric also contains natural compounds that act as a natural antacid, protecting the stomach lining from excess acidity and ulcer formation.
Turmeric has also been shown to reduce platelets (a constituent of the blood involved in blood clotting) from clumping together, which in turn improves circulation and helps protect against atherosclerosis. Several studies have shown that a daily oral administration of Turmeric extract decreases significantly the LDL (bad cholesterol) and increases the HDL (good cholesterol) of healthy subjects. All the researchers concluded that Turmeric is useful in the management of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease.
Numerous cancer research institutes, including the Amala Cancer Research Centre in India have confirmed that curcumin significantly increased several parameters of immune activity in improving infection fighting and anti-tumor activity. Researchers have also initiated some studies on curcumin use for HIV infection, where it is found to have marked anti-HIV properties in the test tube. It was also found to protect from the subsequent infections from weakened immunity, such as Epstein-Barr virus (EBV).
