Skin toner – what’s the rave?

Skin toners get all the rave for their ability to preserve and tighten skin. Unfortunately, many of these “wonder” products contain chemicals such as parabens, citric acid and potassium sorbate, which act to keep harmful microorganisms from growing in the facial toner and ruining the formula, some of which can not only be harmful and harsh on your skin, but also carcinogenic. Artificial fragrance is also common in facial toners, but the vague term “fragrance” can indicate up to 4,000 separate chemicals (1). The great news is that there’s a safe, clean, and eco-friendly alternative to these popular chemical-laden cosmetic products that you can access straight from your home.

Enagic Kangen water ionizers make a toner water of pH 4.0-6.0, which effectively improves skin tightness, softness, and prevents wrinkles – you might have even heard it was mentioned in Vogue! Unlike nearly any other toner water on the market, this toner naturally contains NO chemicals, fragrances, or additives! The water is created simply by the process of electrolysis, where the tap water from your sink is filtered and then passed through the machine’s platinum electrode plates, where the pH is changed. Because the water has no preservatives, it is best to use it fresh from the machine, but you can also fill a spray bottle with it to take it on the go!

It’s not just about alkaline, it’s about hydrogen!

istock45207098large.jpg

We’ve all heard about the benefits of alkaline water, but did you know that another key component of water is also how much hydrogen it contains? A study in fact found that the consumption of water containing a high concentration of hydrogen reduced oxidative stress and disease activity in patients who had rheumatoid arthritis. The great news is that Enagic Kangen water is not only alkaline, but also is highly hydrogenated! You won’t find that in most bottled alkaline waters. So, hydrogenation is a key component to being most hydrated, which means better skin, hair, and health! More info and purchasing options here!

Turmeric benefits

 

As you can see, the list of Turmeric benefits are aplenty. There’s good reason why this potent super herb has gained buzz in the natural wellness and health industry. So, read on below for more Turmeric benefits:

Turmeric provides an abundance of antioxidants capable of supporting cellular health. Here are several of the most well-researched benefits of turmeric.

1. Promotes Balanced Mood

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study in the Journal of Affective Disorders showed noticeable and promising results with turmeric for supporting a balanced mood. Two groups were studied over 8 weeks. The first group received curcumin daily, while the other received placebo. After 8 weeks, the depression and anxiety score tests completed by all of the participants showed significant symptom improvements compared to placebo. Could turmeric be a potential new option for stabilizing mood? [3]

2. Helps Wounds Heal Faster

Cut your finger? A study in the Sept 2014 issue of Life Sciences found that turmeric (curcumin) has beneficial properties that appear to speed the wound healing process. These modes of action include the modulation of redness and swelling and oxidation. As new studies come to light showing turmeric’s ability to potentiate the body’s natural healing processes and outcome, the possible breadth of applications could be enormous. [4]

An exciting study in the Oct 2006 issue of Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry demonstrated the efficacy of a topical turmeric application for wounds in rats. The results showed that turmeric increased collagen synthesis rates, improved wound contraction, and increased tissue strength and cell proliferation around the wound. Turmeric also showed antioxidant properties that helped the healing process. [5]

3. Helps Soothe Aches and Discomfort

An impressive study completed and published in the March 2014 issue of the Journal of Clinical Interventions in Aging looked at the effect of turmeric on knee osteoarthritis pain and function. In the 4-week study, two groups were randomized and divided; one group received turmeric extract, while the other group received the daily upper limit dose of ibuprofen.

Results showed that the turmeric group experienced discomfort relief just as much as the ibuprofen group. The turmeric group, however, seemed to enjoy more relief from joint stiffness. Those taking turmeric reported significantly less side effects than those taking NSAIDs. [6] A double-blind, placebo-controlled study in the December 2011 issue of Surgical Endoscopy looked at turmeric supplementation on postoperative discomfort and fatigue in patients who had gallbladder surgery. Patients taking turmeric experienced significantly less pain and fatigue (per pain scale log assessments) at intervals of 3 weeks, as compared to placebo. [7]

4. Encourages Balanced Blood Sugar

A novel investigative study published in the Nov 2014 issue of The Journal of Endocrinology looked at the effects of curcumin on the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas called Beta cells (or B-cells) and Islet cells, in relation to type-2 diabetes. Researchers treated B-cell lines and human Islet cells with preparations of turmeric and reported a number of positive benefits. [8]

5. Soothes Irritated Tissue

Turmeric has been shown in studies to be valuable in helping the body modulate and buffer excess irritation. The swelling response is a healthy and natural mechanism the body uses to usher soothing compounds in acute times of crises or repair. It’s believed that most people in today’s toxic, stress-laden environment are under constant inflammatory conditions, and a growing number of experts believe it to be the origin of many diseases.

A review published in the 2007 issue of Advances of Experimental Medicine noted the soothing effect of turmeric is likely exerted through its ability to inhibit inflammatory enzymes including cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), lipoxygenase (LOX), and nitric oxide synthase (NOS), among others. These three are particularly important enzymes that mediate and inform the inflammatory processes, though if poorly regulated can possibly lead to disease. Turmeric shows promise in helping the body adapt and regulate these enzymes. [9] [10]

6. Helps Stiff Joints

A randomized, pilot clinical study was published in the November 2012 issue of Phytotherapy Research. The goal of the study was to see the effectiveness and/or difference in the relief of active joint discomfort. One study group received the standard-of-care medication (diclofenac sodium), while the other received turmeric. Patients were given symptom score sheets (DAS/ACR) to assess results. Turmeric outperformed diclofenac sodium on all levels, including being relatively free from adverse side effects. [11]

7. Cholesterol Optimization

Turmeric’s ability to help the body regulate and balance cholesterol levels has been hypothesized and studied since the 1990s with varying levels of benefits. A couple of these studies show an impressive reduction in lipid profiles and cholesterol markers in turmeric-supplemented groups. One randomized, single-blind clinical study published in the November 2011 issue of Phytotherapy Research set out to investigate turmeric’s effect on cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

Group participants were given either turmeric (curcumin) in low or high doses, and a control group was given vitamin E only. After just seven days, the results proved statistically significant. Low-dose turmeric showed the most improvement as compared to the other two groups, with serum cholesterol levels being reduced by 17% and triglycerides being slashed a whopping 47%! [12]

Another study conducted a similar seven day trial. Results showed the turmeric (curcumin) supplemented participants had reduced serum cholesterol by 12%, reduced lipid peroxides (cholesterol byproduct marker) by 33%, and increased HDL cholesterol (the good kind) by an impressive 29%. Most importantly, these studies show that turmeric is consistently safe and has very low risk of side effect. [13]

8. Ulcers

India has long used turmeric in curry dishes as a taste and color enhancer. Another key reason turmeric has been used in so many cultural dishes in the East for millennia is because of its soothing properties on digestion. Researchers wanted to test the protective effects of turmeric on the lining of the stomach against acidic preparations (ethanol) used to induce stomach ulcers in test animals (representative of humans).

A preparation containing the essential oils from turmeric was administered prior to the ethanol and the results were impressive. Turmeric inhibited stomach ulcer formation by an impressive 85%. Lesions, tissue necrosis, and hemorrhaging were also greatly reduced. In addition, turmeric also appears to offer some impressive protection for stomach ailments. [14]

Supplementing with Turmeric

There are a lot of turmeric supplements on the market; some better than others. At minimum, make sure to only purchase organic products from reputable companies. Because turmeric is so popular, there’s no shortage of hucksters out there peddling low quality junk that’s produced under questionable circumstances. If you’re in the market for a turmeric supplement, we now carry a 100% organic ultra-potent organic supplement which you can find here. The feedback on this product has been incredible!

10 Proven Health Benefits of Turmeric and Curcumin

10 Proven Health Benefits of Turmeric and Curcumin
10 Proven Health Benefits of Turmeric and Curcumin

Turmeric is considered to be the most effective nutritional supplement available in the market and many high-caliber studies demonstrate that Turmeric has tremendous benefits for your body and also your brain.

Here are the top 10 evidence-based health benefits of Turmeric:

1. Turmeric Contains Bioactive Compounds With Powerful Medicinal Properties

Turmeric is the spice that gives curry its yellow color and has been used in India for thousands of years as not only a spice, but also a powerful medicinal herb.

Recently, the scientific community has begun to substantiate what Indians have since discovered long ago… and has proven that Turmeric actually does contain compounds with medicinal properties (1).

These compounds are called curcuminoids, the most important of which is curcumin (this is why it is important to make sure that you Turmeric supplement or Tea is high in curcumin levels – this Organic Turmeric Supplement and this Organic Turmeric Tea product have very high levels of curcumin and are trusted by the industry’s leading professionals).

Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric and has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant (Enagic’s Turmeric Supplement and Turmeric Tea product are abundant in curcumin, due to the rich soil it is grown in on the Blue Zone Island of Okinawa, Japan. This makes Enagic’s Turmeric products the very best and highest quality Turmeric products on the market considering that the curcumin content of standard turmeric is not that high (around 3%, by weight) (2).


Organic UKON Turmeric Supplement
Enagic Organic Turmeric Curcumin Supplement

Most of the studies on Turmeric are conducted using turmeric extracts that contain mostly curcumin itself, with dosages usually exceeding 1 gram per day. It would be very difficult to reach these levels just using the turmeric spice in your foods.

Therefore, if you want to experience the full effects, then you need to take a high quality extract that contains significant amounts of curcumin (we recommend this high-grade Turmeric supplement).

Because curcumin is poorly absorbed into the bloodstream, (3), most standard Turmeric supplements do not provide substantial bioavailability when ingested, unless it contains the unique blend of wild-cultivated strands – Enagic’s Organic UKON Turmeric Supplement is the only organic Turmeric supplement brand that combines and crafts this rare blend of quality-grown Turmeric strains and is 95% bioavailable!

Curcumin is also fat soluble, so it may be a good idea to take it with a fatty meal (Enagic’s Organic UKON Turmeric Supplement includes a careful blend of extra-virgin olive oil to ensure maximum absorption of its curcumin so you can take the supplement at almost any time of the day).

Bottom Line: Turmeric contains curcumin, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It is important to make sure that your turmeric supplement is high-quality and contains high amounts of bioavailable curcumin (this Turmeric Supplement brand is 95% bioavailable, which is very high compared to most Turmeric supplements on the market).

2. Curcumin is a Natural Anti-Inflammatory Compound

Turmeric in Wooden Bowl

Inflammation helps the body fight foreign invaders and also has a role in repairing damage.

Without inflammation, pathogens like bacteria could easily take over our bodies and kill us.

While acute (short-term) inflammation is beneficial, it can become a major problem when it is chronic (long-term) and inappropriately deployed against the body’s own tissues.

It is now believed that chronic, low-level inflammation plays a major role in almost every chronic, Western disease, including heart disease, cancer, metabolic syndrome, Alzheimer’s and various other degenerative conditions (4, 5, 6).

Therefore, anything that can help fight chronic inflammation is of great potential importance in preventing and even treating this variety of diseases.

It turns out that curcumin (in high quality organic Turmeric supplements) is strongly anti-inflammatory and is so powerful that it matches the effectiveness of some anti-inflammatory drugs (7).

Curcumin actually targets multiple steps in the inflammatory pathway, at the molecular level.

Curcumin blocks NF-kB, a molecule that travels into the nuclei of cells and turns on genes related to inflammation. NF-kB is believed to play a major role in many chronic diseases (8, 9).

Without delving too far into the details as the concept of inflammation is extremely painstaking, the main takeaway here is that curcumin is a bioactive substance that even fights inflammation at the molecular level (10, 11, 12).

In several studies, curcumin’s potency has compared favorably to anti-inflammatory pharmaceutical drugs… except without the side effects (13, 14).

Bottom Line: Chronic inflammation is known to be a contributor to many common Western diseases. Curcumin (found in high quality organic Turmeric supplements) can inhibit many molecules known to play major roles in inflammation. It is very important to make sure that your turmeric supplement is high-quality, organic and contains high amounts of bioavailable curcumin in order to ensure that you are gaining maximum effectiveness from curcumin (this Turmeric Supplement brand is very abundant in curcumin and is 95% absorbable by the body, which is very high compared to most other Turmeric supplements on the market).

3. Turmeric Dramatically Increases The Antioxidant Capacity of The Body

Turmeric in Bowl and Spoon

Oxidative damage is believed to be one of the mechanisms behind aging and many diseases.

It involves free radicals, which are highly reactive molecules with unpaired electrons. Free radicals tend to react with important organic substances, such as fatty acids, proteins or DNA.

The number one reason why antioxidants are so beneficial, is that they protect our bodies from free radical damage.

Curcumin happens to be a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals due to its chemical structure (15, 16).

Ingesting curcumin even boosts the activity of the body’s own antioxidant enzymes (17, 18,19).

In that way, curcumin delivers a strong line of defense against free radicals by blocking them directly and also stimulating the body’s own antioxidant mechanisms.

Bottom Line: Curcumin has powerful antioxidant effects. Curcumin neutralizes free radicals on its own, then stimulates the body’s own antioxidant enzymes. Again, it is very important to make sure that the curcumin supplement that you are taking is high-quality, organic and contains high amounts of bioavailable curcumin in order to ensure maximum effectiveness of the curcumin you’re ingesting (this Turmeric Supplement brand is trusted by industry leading professionals for its very abundant curcumin content and is 95% absorbable by the body, which is a very high rate of absorption compared to most Turmeric supplements on the market).

Years ago, it was believed that neurons weren’t able to divide and multiply after early childhood.

However, it is now known that this indeed does happen.

The neurons are capable of forming new connections and, in certain areas of the brain, can also multiply and increase in number.

One of the main drivers of this process is Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), which is a type of growth hormone that functions in the brain (20).

Many common brain disorders have been linked to decreased levels of this hormone, including depression and Alzheimer’s disease (21, 22).

Interestingly, the ingestion of high quality curcumin can increase brain levels of BDNF (23, 24).

By doing this, ingesting high quality curcumin may be effective at delaying or even reversing many brain diseases and age-related decreases in brain function (25).

Curcumin is also believed to help improve memory and enhance cognitive function, making it a potentially great solution for kids seeking a natural solution to ADD and ADHD, a conclusion that makes sense given its effects on BDNF levels (26).

Bottom Line: Curcumin boosts levels of the brain hormone BDNF, which increases the growth of new neurons and fights various degenerative processes in the brain. Again, it is very important to make sure that the curcumin supplement that you are taking is high-quality, organic and contains high amounts of bioavailable curcumin in order to ensure maximum effectiveness of the curcumin you’re ingesting (this Turmeric Supplement brand is trusted by industry leading professionals for its very abundant curcumin content and is 95% absorbable by the body, which is a very high rate of absorption compared to most Turmeric supplements on the market).

5. Curcumin Leads to Various Improvements That Could Lower Your Risk of Heart Disease

Large Wooden Spoon Filled With Turmeric Powder

Heart disease is the most common killer in the world (27) and has been studied for many decades.

It is believed that Curcumin may help reverse many steps in the heart disease process (28).

Perhaps the main benefit of curcumin when it comes to heart disease, is improving the function of the endothelium, which is the lining of the blood vessels.

It is well known that endothelial dysfunction is a major driver of heart disease and involves an inability of the endothelium to regulate blood pressure, blood clotting and various other factors (29).

Several studies suggest that curcumin leads to improvements in endothelial function. One study shows that curcumin as effective as exercise, another shows that it even works as well as the drug Atorvastatin (30, 31).

In addition to these benefits, ingesting curcumin (in high quality Turmeric supplements like this) also reduces inflammation and oxidation (as mentioned above), which have an impact on heart disease.

In one study, 121 patients who were undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery were randomized to either placebo or 4 grams of curcumin per day, a few days before and after the surgery.

The curcumin group had a 65% decreased risk of experiencing a heart attack in the hospital (32).

  • Bottom Line: Curcumin has beneficial effects on several factors known to play a role in heart disease. Curcumin improves the function of the endothelium and is a potent anti-inflammatory agent and powerful antioxidant for the body.
  • Again, it is very important to make sure that the curcumin supplement that you are taking is high-quality, organic and contains high amounts of bioavailable curcumin in order to ensure maximum effectiveness of the curcumin you’re ingesting.
  • We recommend ENAGIC’s Organic Turmeric Supplement, which is made by Enagic and trusted by industry leading professionals including Obama’s cardiologist, for its very abundant curcumin content and is 95% absorbable by the body, which is a very high rate of absorption compared to most Turmeric supplements on the market. Enagic is endorsed by top industry leading professionals including Dr. Horst Filtzer, M.D. a Harvard Medical School graduate cum laude and Cardiovascular Surgeon, as well as Gerald Bresnahan, M.D., FACC, who is the cardiologist to Barack Obama and previous presidents – you can purchase Enagic’s Organic Turmeric Supplement here.

6. Turmeric Can Help Prevent (And Perhaps Even Treat) Cancer

Cancer is a terrible disease, characterized by uncontrolled growth of cells.

There are many different forms of cancer, but they do have several commonalities, some of which appear to be affected by curcumin supplementation (33).

Researchers have been studying curcumin as a beneficial herb in cancer treatment. Curcumin can affect cancer growth, development and spread at the molecular level (34).

Studies have shown that Curcumin can reduce angiogenesis (growth of new blood vessels in tumors), metastasis (spread of cancer), as well as contributing to the death of cancerous cells (35).

Multiple studies have shown that curcumin can reduce the growth of cancerous cells in the laboratory and inhibit the growth of tumours in test animals (36, 37).

There is growing evidence that supplementing with a high quality organic bioavailable Turmeric supplement (like Enagic’s Organic Turmeric Supplement grown on the fertile rich soil of Blue Zone Island Okinawa in Japan, and which is 95% absorbable by the body) may help prevent cancer from occurring in the first place, especially cancers of the digestive system (like colorectal cancer).

In one study in 44 men with lesions in the colon that sometimes turn cancerous, 4 grams of curcumin per day for 30 days reduced the number of lesions by 40% (38).

Bottom Line: Curcumin leads to several changes on the molecular level that may help prevent and perhaps even treat cancer. Again, it is very important to make sure that the curcumin supplement that you are ingesting is high-quality, organic and contains high amounts of bioavailable curcumin in order to ensure maximum effectiveness of the curcumin you’re ingesting (this Turmeric Supplement brand is trusted by industry leading professionals for its very abundant curcumin content and is 95% absorbable by the body, which is a very high rate of absorption compared to most Turmeric supplements on the market).

7. Curcumin May be Useful in Preventing and Treating Alzheimer’s Disease

A Pile of Fresh Turmeric Roots

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common neurodegenerative disease in the world and a leading cause of dementia.

Unfortunately, no effective conventional treatment is available for Alzheimer’s yet.

Therefore, preventing it from showing up in the first place is of utmost importance.

There may be good news on the horizon, because curcumin has been shown to cross the blood-brain barrier (39).

It is known that inflammation and oxidative damage play a role in Alzheimer’s disease. As we know, curcumin has beneficial effects on both (40).

But one key feature of Alzheimer’s disease is a buildup of protein tangles called Amyloid plaques. Studies show that curcumin can help clear these plaques (41).

Bottom Line: Curcumin can cross the blood-brain barrier and has been shown to lead to various improvements in the pathological process of Alzheimer’s disease.

  • Again, it is very important to make sure that the curcumin supplement that you are ingesting is high-quality, organic and contains high amounts of bioavailable curcumin in order to ensure maximum effectiveness of the curcumin you’re ingesting (this Turmeric Supplement brand is trusted by industry leading professionals for its very abundant curcumin content and is 95% absorbable by the body, which is a very high rate of absorption compared to most Turmeric supplements on the market).

8. Arthritis Patients Respond Very Well to Curcumin Supplementation

A Plate Full of Turmeric Powder

Arthritis is a common problem in Western countries.

There are several different types, but most involve some sort of inflammation in the joints.

Considering that curcumin is a potent anti-inflammatory, it makes sense that it could help with arthritis. Several studies show this to be true.

In a study of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, curcumin was even more effective than an anti-inflammatory drug (42).

Many other studies have looked at the effects of curcumin on arthritis and noted improvements in various symptoms (43, 44).

Bottom Line: Arthritis is a common disorder characterized by joint inflammation. Many studies show that curcumin can help treat symptoms of arthritis and is in some cases more effective than anti-inflammatory drugs. Again, it is very important to make sure that the curcumin supplement that you are ingesting is high-quality, organic and contains high amounts of bioavailable curcumin in order to ensure maximum effectiveness of the curcumin you’re ingesting (this Turmeric Supplement brand is trusted by industry leading professionals for its very abundant curcumin content and is 95% absorbable by the body, which is a very high rate of absorption compared to most Turmeric supplements on the market).

9. Studies Show That Curcumin Has Incredible Benefits Against Depression

Turmeric Roots and Powder

Curcumin (found in high quality Turmeric supplements like this) has shown some promise in treating depression.

In a controlled trial, 60 patients were randomized into three groups (45).

One group took prozac, another group took a gram of curcumin and the third group took both prozac and curcumin.

After 6 weeks, curcumin had led to improvements that were similar to prozac. The group that took both prozac and curcumin fared best. According to this (small) study, curcumin is even as effective as an antidepressant.

Depression is also linked to reduced levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor and a shrinking hippocampus, a brain area with a role in learning and memory.

Curcumin boosts BNDF levels, potentially reversing some of these changes (46).

There is also some evidence that curcumin can boost the brain neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine (47, 48).

Bottom Line: A study in 60 depressed patients showed that curcumin was as effective as prozac in alleviating the symptoms of depression.

  • Again, it is very important to make sure that the curcumin supplement that you are ingesting is high-quality, organic and contains high amounts of bioavailable curcumin in order to ensure maximum effectiveness of the curcumin you’re ingesting (this Turmeric Supplement brand is trusted by industry leading professionals for its very abundant curcumin content and is 95% absorbable by the body, which is a very high rate of absorption compared to most Turmeric supplements on the market).

10. Curcumin May Help Delay Aging and Fight Age-Related Chronic Diseases

If curcumin can really help prevent heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s… then this would have obvious benefits for longevity.

For this reason, curcumin has become very popular as an anti-aging supplement (49), and is believed to help promote beauty naturally.

But given that oxidation and inflammation are believed to play a role in aging, curcumin may have effects that go way beyond just prevention of disease (50).

11. Suggestions for maximizing the effects and benefits of Curcumin in your regimen

There are several ways to properly and effectively incorporate Curcumin (Turmeric) into your daily regimen. We highly recommend a high-quality, bioavailable organic Turmeric supplement as the first method of ingesting curcumin. In a mass comparison and deep analysis of several leading Turmeric supplement manufacturers, Enagic Organic UKON Curcumin Turmeric far surpasses the standards of any other Turmeric Supplement on the market when it comes to quality, purity and bioavailability.

Okinawan Longevity Secrets: Ukon Turmeric – available in tea or supplement form

Called “ucchin” in Okinawa, ukon turmeric is a perennial herb of the well-known ginger family that originated in India, and was brought to the Ryukyu islands in the Age of Commerce. An ingredient in curry powder and known as “turmeric” in English, many people may have eaten it without knowing it as “ukon”. Its fleshy rhizome, which resembles ginger, contains a large amount of a component called curcumin (especially UKON Turmeric that is grown on the fertile volcanic soils of Yanburu, Japan, such as: Enagic’s Organic UKON Turmeric Supplement,    Enagic’s Organic UKON Turmeric Tea    and    Enagic’s Organic UKON Turmeric and Honey Soap Bar) , which possesses a variety of medicinal benefits, including the strengthening of liver function, anticancer action, active oxygen elimination action, digestive health effects, antithrombotic action, and sterilizing/antiseptic action. It is also believed to be highly effective against various conditions like cholangitis, gallstones, jaundice, hyperlipidemia, arteriosclerosis, angina pectoris, diabetes, high blood pressure, and hay fever and other nasal or sinus allergies. Ukon Turmeric is also indispensable as a hangover preventative for many habitual drinkers with overworked livers. Such a wide variety of processed products are available on the market, including dried tips, powder, beverages, and granules, that it is not at all unusual for people to always carry a compact case of pills stashed in their purse when going to the pub. It has been discovered that Ukon Turmeric that has undergone fermentative treatment possesses elevated antioxidant action, a fact that has attracted attention. This technique was developed through joint research between private enterprise and the University of the Ryukyus, where fermentation of Ukon Turmeric reportedly led to a reduction of fat and sugar, and an increase in protein, fiber, and mineral content, as compared to dried Ukon Turmeric. For this reason, it is said to produce a reduction in energy sources such as fat that tend to be consumed in excess, and be able to replenish fiber and minerals that are often lacking. In addition to regular drinkers, adding Ukon Turmeric Tea to water bottles has also become increasingly popular among individuals who are concerned about their health. The cancer prevention effectiveness of Ukon’s antioxidant functioning has also been announced at medical conventions, and this benefit was noticed by the Ministry of Welfare of Japan (now the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare), the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture of Japan, and the Science and Technology Agency of Japan (now the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology), who in 1995 launched the New 10-year Strategy to Overcome Cancer, under which was included a “project to prevent cancer through the Ukon pigment component curcumin”. There are three types of Ukon, based on the different times at which their flowers bloom: spring ukon (kyouou), fall ukon (ukon), and purple ukon (gajutsu). Of these, fall ukon contains the highest curcumin content at 3.6% (Enagic’s Organic Japanese UKON Turmeric Supplement contains a unique blend of both Spring Ukon and Fall Ukon to enhance the absorption and health benefits). The raw rhizome has a unique fragrance and bitterness, but is unsuitable for eating as-is and is best taken either as a high-quality organic UKON Turmeric supplement or in tea form.

In addition to consumption, ukon turmeric has also been used for dyeing. It was said that when babies were dressed in kimono that had been dyed with ukon, they would not be bitten by insects, and it was believed that clothing wrapped in fabric dyed with ukon would remain free of pests. In the Ryukyu Kingdom era, the reputed high quality of ukon produced in Ryukyu led to high demand in Osaka and elsewhere. As a result, the royal government of the Ryukyu Kingdom in 1647 established a monopoly and claimed all profits. History also tells that in the 1830s and 1840s, the Satsuma domain operated a monopoly, and sold ukon at high prices as medicine and dye, attaining significant profit. Ukon Turmeric is from the ginger family and grows in tropical areas of Asia. Varieties include Spring, Autumn, and Purple. Essential oils are characteristic of Spring and Purple turmeric while Autumn turmeric has high concentrations of curcumin (Enagic’s Organic Japanese UKON Turmeric Supplement contains a unique blend of multiple Ukon and varieties in order to enhance the absorption and health benefits).

Dr. Mercola: Organic Turmeric Benefits

Dr. Mercola: Organic Turmeric Benefits – “The Spice That Supports Your Body’s Astonishing Immune System*”

This antioxidant may also maintain cholesterol levels already in the normal range, and slow down the signs of normal aging.*

You may already know I place a strong emphasis on eating as much unprocessed, organically grown food as possible for optimal health.

Turmeric

One frequently overlooked way to enhance and optimize health with organically grown food is the use of herbs and spices – unprocessed and organic, of course.

One amazing benefit of these herbs is that they’re very low in calories, while being dense in vitamins and minerals.

In the same vein, they’re thermogenic, meaning they naturally support your metabolism to help you burn calories.* You feel satisfied more easily, so you eat less.* Studies show that consuming certain herbs and spices before each meal can potentially reduce your caloric intake.*

Due to their nutrient-dense status, they promote your overall well-being with antioxidants more potent than many fruits and veggies.*

Herbs and spices promote health and well-being in your entire body, not just in a particular area.

This “whole person” approach is why I believe these spices and herbs can benefit you so greatly.

But I consider one particular spice the “granddaddy” of them all, because its benefits are so amazing and far-reaching. After a long wait, I’ve brought back my Turmeric supplement under my own brand.

How This Ancient Spice Originated Thousands of Years Ago

turmeric supplement

India is the home of Ayurveda, recognized as an authoritative source of knowledge and truth in natural health promotion — with herbs and spices lying at the very heart of Ayurvedic practice. So it would make perfect sense to consider using herbs that were grown in India if you are considering Ayurvedic herbs.

That’s one of the reasons I traveled over 15,000 miles to India to find a high-quality source of these herbs. During my trip to India, I witnessed firsthand how the Ayurvedic holistic approach and organic processes work in unison.

And of the many herbs and spices I studied, the one in particular that caught my immediate attention was turmeric. It provides you with these whole-person benefits:

  • Supports your healthy joint function*
  • Promotes a healthy inflammatory response*
  • Promotes your radiant skin*
  • Helps improve your digestion*

And so much more…


The very best, more potent 100% and bioavailable Turmeric on the market:

Top organic Turmeric supplement 2016
Top organic Turmeric supplement 2016

Thousands of years ago, people in India and China used the spice. In fact, some stories suggest usage dates back 10,000 years in India when they say Lord Rama walked the earth.

And the ancient Polynesians carried turmeric with them on their incredible voyage across the Pacific Ocean to Hawaii. Today, Hawaiians still use this spice — known to them as Olena.

While in China in 1280 AD, Marco Polo recorded information on turmeric in his diary:

“There is also a vegetable which has all the properties of true saffron, as well the smell and the color, and yet it is not really saffron.

So, turmeric has been used as a substitute for saffron (an old world spice) in Europe for over 700 years.

One of the main healthful ingredients in turmeric is curcumin (a curcuminoid), which as I said, gives turmeric its yellow color.

Western scientists first isolated the curcumin molecule in 1815, obtained its crystalline form in 1870, and determined its overall structure in 1910.

Curcumin can potentially benefit you by:

  • Promoting your immune system*
  • Helping you maintain your healthy digestive system*
  • Supporting your healthy bones, joints, and overall skeletal system*
  • Helping you maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range*
  • Promoting your healthy blood and liver functions*

How Turmeric and Curcumin Provide Antioxidant Nutrients*

You probably know that antioxidants are important for your health.

I believe antioxidants are your body’s #1 way to neutralize free radicals and help you potentially slow down the signs of normal aging.*

Oxidation by free radicals can damage cells and organs — and thus impact your aging process* — something I’m sure you’d rather put the brakes on.

Antioxidants are also key nutrients in:

  • Supporting your memory function*
  • Promoting your heart health*
  • Supporting your immune system*

Turmeric’s antioxidants help protect your cells from free radical damage.*

The antioxidant content within turmeric comes from active compounds called curcuminoids.

These curcuminoids deliver antioxidants that may be:

  • 3 times more powerful than grape seed or pine bark extract
  • Strong enough to scavenge the hydroxyl radical — considered by many to be the most reactive of all oxidants*

How Turmeric Enhances Your Outer Beauty*

Speaking of antioxidant nutrients and their potential to impact the aging process, some of the first aging signs you may see as you get older are changes to your skin.

turmeric formula

Believe it or not, the organic ingredients found in turmeric (and organic, ultra-potent turmeric supplements like this) can help promote your healthy skin.*

How, you ask?

Curcuminoids support important blood and liver functions, healthy joints, and your overall well-being, which in turn helps promote radiant, supple skin.*

Turmeric has been considered to be “skin food” for thousands of years in India and other cultures.*

Turmeric helps:

  • Cleanse your skin and maintain its elasticity*
  • Provide nourishment to your skin*
  • Balance the effects of skin flora*

So, high-quality organic turmeric supplements can act as your one-two punch against normal aging with its skin promotion and antioxidant capabilities — outer beauty plus inner purity.*

Your Triple-Action Cellular Booster and Adaptogen*

Another potential advantage from turmeric usage involves the smallest living things within you — your cells.

Turmeric can assist your cells in three ways, by:

  • Helping neutralize substances that can cause cellular stress*
  • Maintaining your cells’ integrity when threatened by occasional environmental stressors*
  • Providing the antioxidants you need to help support your cells against excessive oxidation and free radicals*

Turmeric is also recognized as an adaptogen — helping to support your body against stress and providing immune system support.*

How This Ancient Spice Has Become Embedded in India’s Ayurvedic Practice

Turmeric, like other herbs and spices, is a principle herb in Ayurveda — India’s ancient holistic health system. Ayurveda means “knowledge of life” — with herbs lying at the very heart of Ayurvedic practice.

organic turmeric

Turmeric has multiple uses within Ayurveda, including blood cleansing and maintaining healthy skin.*

In Ayurvedic terminology, turmeric includes the following:

  • Verdana sthapana — promotes your healthy nervous system and helps you with occasional discomfort*
  • Sangrahani — supports your absorption of vitamins and minerals*
  • Anulomana — helps you in purging out wastes and building healthy blood*
  • Rakta stambhaka — promotes the wellness of your circulatory system*

And this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Ayurvedic turmeric uses.

What does this mean to you?

Simply, turmeric has been used in Indian culture for thousands of years for a multitude of health-promoting reasons.* An estimated 500 million Indians still use the spice today.

What Are Your Best Sources for Turmeric?

So by now, you might be wondering about potential sources of turmeric.

Well, you may already know you can find it in the spice aisle of your local grocery store. I don’t recommend using your local grocery store, due to the quality of their herbs and spices.

Even though there may be some good spices available there, it’s very difficult to verify their purity and potency.

Also, the turmeric powder you buy in your store is a spice. It doesn’t necessarily come from high-quality organic herbs — and is not produced using certified organic processes, causing you to risk missing its healthful benefits.

What’s more… with store-bought turmeric powder, you’ll probably just use it once in a while to cook with — not on a daily basis to consistently take advantage of the benefits it offers.

So, what other options do you have?

I recommend searching for a high-quality, organic-based turmeric supplement (and to be specific, I highly recommend this one made by Enagic).

But there are some things you should watch for when choosing a turmeric supplement.

Avoid Unnecessary Fillers, Additives, and Excipients

When I did my own research on available turmeric supplements, I found a surprising array of choices.

Besides curcumin and curcuminoid ingredients, I found products with questionable ingredients like fillers, additives, and excipients. An excipient is a substance added to the supplement as a processing or stability aid.

One ingredient, magnesium stearate (also known as stearic acid), is a potentially toxic metal additive from pill production.

Another ingredient I found in many turmeric supplements, Dibasic Calcium Phosphate (DCP), may even inhibit the absorption of essential minerals within your system.

There are others you may find as well, but the bottom line is… you don’t want or need these ingredients in your turmeric supplement. Some pose potential health risks — and all are unnecessary.

Use This Checklist to Find Your Highest Quality Turmeric

To take advantage of all the great benefits turmeric has to offer you, I created a checklist on what you should look for in a turmeric supplement (Enagic’s 100% organic Turmeric grown on the Blue Zone island of Okinawa, Japan fulfills all the items on this checklist! Find it here).

Whatever you do, don’t settle for second best.

Here’s my checklist to help you find the best turmeric source:

  • Contains only certified organic turmeric – Includes a turmeric extract standardized to at least 95% curcuminoids
  • Comes in supplement form — Don’t rely on your typically low-quality and unpredictable local grocery store spice. Additionally when you heat the spice during cooking many of the beneficial properties are lost.
  • Avoids fillers, additives, and excipients — No need for questionable “other ingredients” in the formula
  • Provides a vegetable capsule — Avoid gelatin-based capsules whenever possible
