If you could take only one supplement, would you choose curcumin?
For leading experts in natural health like Terry Lemerond of Terry Naturally, the answer would be a resounding “Yes!” Terry’s credits include 45 years of natural health research, two incredibly successful supplement companies, and countless awards to his credit – the fact that curcumin would be Terry’s first choice should tell you something!
The turmeric root has been a stellar botanical in both Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine for centuries, and has finally gained the recognition in science and medicine it deserves. Curcumin is the active compound of tumeric. It is what gives it its many health benefits.
As I write this, there are scores of human clinical trials taking place on the health benefits of curcumin for a plethora of health concerns.
If you’ve been wondering if curcumin should be a part of your daily supplement regimen, study what these experts in natural health and medicine have to say. I think you’ll be impressed.
Three Health Experts Praise Curcumin
Ajay Goel, PhD
When you have credentials like Dr. Ajay, people listen. He is the Director of the Center for Gastrointestinal Research and Director of the Center for Epigenetics, Cancer Prevention and Cancer Genomics at Baylor Research Institute and Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at the prestigious Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas.
He is also one of the top scientists in the world researching botanical interventions!
Dr. Ajay has contributed to 192 articles in PubMed, but there are 13 articles specifically on the benefits of curcumin. Here are just a few highlights:
- Efficacy and safety of curcumin in major depressive disorder: a randomized controlled trial
- A randomized, pilot study to assess the efficacy and safety of curcumin in patients with active rheumatoid arthritis
- Curcumin as “Curecumin”: from kitchen to clinic
Take 15 minutes to hear Dr. Ajay discuss the merits of curcumin in this interview with The Natural Medicine Journal. It’s time well spent.
Jacob Teitlebaum, MD
Dr. Teitlebaum is the Founding Diplomate of the American Board of Holistic Medicine, Director of the Center for Effective CFIDS/Fibromyalgia Therapies, and Medical Director of Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Centers. A nationally known expert in fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, pain and sleep, Dr. Teitlebaum has made many appearances on popular media programs like Good Morning America, CNN, Fox News, Dr. Oz and Oprah & Friends.
Dr. Teitlebaum has himself suffered from chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia, and through his own research, discovered alternative treatments not known to mainstream medicine. He has since dedicated his life to help those suffering from CFS and fibromyalgia.
So you can imagine someone with his background might know a few things about supplements that work – and those that don’t!
In an article from Taste for Life on The Power of Curcumin” Dr. T said:
The only form that I will use is the one called BCM-95, which increases absorption approximately 700 percent by adding in turmerone oils. I suggest usage of 500 milligrams twice a day for depression or 750-1,500 milligrams twice a day for those with cancer.
In this video, Dr. T talks about natural pain management.
Sayer is widely known as the founder of GreenMedInfo.com, which ranks in the top 10 sites in the world. He is Vice Chairman of the Board of the National Health Federation, a Strategic Advisor for Fearless Parent™, a Steering committee Member of the Global GMO Free Coalition, and a reviewer for the International College of Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine.
If you aren’t familiar with GreenMedInfo.com you should be. Their mission is “to provide convenient and open access to the biomedical research available today on the therapeutic value of natural substances in disease prevention and treatment.”
The information they provide is not intended to treat diagnose, cure or prevent any disease, but you will find a plethora of scientific data on “natural substances and modalities” that would take you a lifetime to research! In fact, just the turmeric page in GreenMedInfo has almost 1,500 studies cited! Doesn’t that tell you something about the benefits and credibility of this remarkable botanical?
Sayer Ji and the well-credentialed members of GreenMedInfo have put five years into researching turmeric’s long-revered health benefits. The article Science Confirms Turmeric As Effective as 14 Drugs is enough to win someone over to taking curcumin, but here are just 3 things you may find valuable:
- Turmeric has been the focus of 5,600 “peer reviewed and published biomedical studies”
- This research shows turmeric’s potential for over 600 (restorative curative remedial) purposes/functions
- Curcumin provides “175 distinct beneficial physiological effects”
If you’d like to take advantage of the wealth of information from this health and wellness tool, you can get an overview below.
Sayer Ji and GreenMedInfo have gained the attention and respect of millions of natural health advocates around the world.
