The Wonders of Turmeric and Curcumin

Many of the most influential and dependable ingredients are those found in nature. That’s why it’s no surprise that a widely-used ancient herb known for adding an Indian flair to food is also one of the most dependable holistic anti-inflammatory ingredients. If you enjoy Indian cuisine, you will probably be familiar with the vibrant yellow characteristic of authentic curry sauce. As the main ingredient in many traditional recipes, turmeric is responsible for the bold color and the distinct earthy and bitter flavor profile. Yet, as delicious as it is, turmeric offers more profound benefits to consumers than a tasty meal.

What is Turmeric?

Derived from the ginger-like root of the flowering Curcuma longa plant, turmeric is most often seen after it has been dried and ground into a fine, deep orange powder found in spice shops or grocery stores. Turmeric is a potent and decisive ingredient, dense with various unique plant compounds, like curcuminoids on a microscopic level. Most notably, the primary curcuminoid in turmeric is curcumin, the component responsible for many of turmeric’s rich color and many of the health benefits it can offer.

Turmeric and curcumin have been used for ancient medicinal purposes for over 4,000 years. As a versatile ingredient known to promote health and healing, ancient uses for it include:

  • When burned, smoke that came from turmeric was breathed in as a treatment to clear airways, helping with breathing and congestive issues.
  • When made into a paste, turmeric was applied topically to treat several skin-related ailments.
  • The juice of turmeric was used on wounds, as it was believed that the antioxidant properties of the liquid would expedite healing.

With modern medicine evolution, many of these ancient uses served as inspiration for developing supplements containing this powerful ingredient. Since the mid-1800s, the Western world has benefitted from these potent compounds, too. Seen as both an exotic and tasty spice and a wellness “cure-all,” it didn’t take long for turmeric and curcumin to make their way to the shelves of health stores.

Today, health experts have tapped into the many remarkable benefits of turmeric and curcumin and have found convenient, ideal ways to make them part of one’s everyday health routine. In recent years, curcumin, the most potent curcuminoid in turmeric, has stolen the spotlight. High-end wellness products featuring curcumin have become a staple in the daily lives of wellness enthusiasts worldwide.

In the supplement aisle of your local store, you will undoubtedly find several products featuring the ancient ingredient to choose from. From a curcumin-rich capsule designed to reduce inflammation in the body and offer a wide range of beneficial antioxidants to curcumin-infused multivitamins and supplements intended to elevate everyday products by adding the unparalleled power of curcumin to the mix – the choices are plenty.

In recent years, CBD infused with curcumin has become one of the most popular and dependable products to feature this peerless antioxidant, making it easy and dually beneficial to incorporate curcumin into one’s daily routine.

Understanding CBD

Like turmeric and curcumin, hemp has long been celebrated for its extensive list of benefits, industry, and health. Tracing back to its use as a textile in ancient Mesopotamia nearly 10,000 years ago, hemp, a plant in the Cannabis Sativa plant family, is considered one of the most important crops in history. Early uses of hemp range from clothing, rope, and sails to hemp plastic, paper, and fuel. Hemp also has an extensive history of offering a breadth of ancient medicinal benefits, as the seeds and flowers were used to treat many ailments.

Within the leaves, stalks, and flowers of the hemp, over 100 impressive compounds (including CBD) can play an essential role in a balanced health and wellness routine and offer unprecedented physical and emotional benefits.

Because hemp and marijuana both stem from the Cannabis Sativa plant family, many people confuse the two plants; However, since 2018, the US federal government legally distinguished the two as distinctly different plants. Making all the hemp plant derivatives legal for purchase and use, as long as the product contains .3% tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta 9 THC to be exact) or less.

Delta 9 THC exists in both hemp and marijuana and is known for producing mind-altering side effects, though it is found in much lower hemp levels. When a product complies with federal law (the Farm Bill of 2018), it offers consumers the ability to enjoy all of the positive facets of hemp and its many beneficial cannabinoids (like CBD, CBG, CBN, Delta 8 THC, and more) without fear of euphoric side effects.
