Turmeric and Metabolism


Contributed by Dr. Damian Rodriguez, DHSc, MS

With the recently launched Turmeric Dual Chamber Capsules came a brilliantly simple answer to the biggest problem with conventional turmeric/curcumin supplements: bioavailability. Combining curcuminoids with turmerones merges the best of Mother Nature and modern science for antioxidant support and promotion of healthy inflammatory response.* But, did you know the Turmeric Dual Chamber Capsules may also support healthy metabolism?*

The metabolism-benefitting properties of the Turmeric Dual Chamber Capsules come from both chambers: the active compounds in the plant extract (curcuminoids) and the whole Turmeric essential oil.

Curcumin

Extensive research shows that curcumin may support the proper management of inflammation and oxidative stress, but that isn’t its only benefit1.* According to a review examining over 200 related studies on turmeric and its effects on metabolism, the compound may possess a number of wonderful benefits2.* Another study suggests that ingestion of curcumin may support healthy glucose and lipid metabolism3.*

Turmerones

Not present in the extract, but present in significant concentrations in the essential oil, turmerones have a host of benefits, not the least of which is supporting healthy metabolism. Similar to curcumin, experimental research has shown that internal use of Turmeric essential oil may support healthy glucose and lipid metabolism4,5.* The results of a clinical trial also suggest that internal use of Turmeric essential oil may support weight management6.*

Conclusion

While further research needs to be conducted, combing turmerones and curcuminoids may be a perfect complement to Slim & Sassy® and Cassia in your essential oil-based, metabolic-supporting regimen. Take two Turmeric Dual Chamber Capsules daily as part of your active lifestyle, not only to support healthy joints and connective tissue, but healthy metabolism as well.*
