Turmeric Lowered My Cholesterol 27% in Two Years!!
This is exciting! For years my wife filed my lipid profiles every time I had a physical. A year or so back, I saw the file and put the results in a spreadsheet.
I was SHOCKED to see the graphed results. At a high point, my triglyceride level was 460 and my cholesterol level was 261. How could I have ignored this silent killer? I never took lipid lowering drugs. But I did begin taking raw turmeric in 2015. I downed it twice a day for two years.
I had studied and learned what turmeric can do for cholesterol and then I got my lab results from my test in August 2017. With a healthy diet and turmeric, my triglycerides were at 87 and my cholesterol was 160!!! I was happy beyond words.
Over three years from 2014 to 2017, the results were as follows:
Cholesterol down 27%
Triglycerides down 63%
HDL (good stuff) up 16%
LDL (bad stuff) down 23%.
We now love downing our turmeric. For some people, powder in capsules may fit their lifestyle better. And for those on a specific regimen of curcumin extract to treat various conditions, we encourage them – as we do everyone – to supplement your powders and your pills with whole turmeric rhizome where possible.
We will soon offer GEORGIA GOLD and we are EXCITED that all our products are made from the WHOLE PLANT – both the rhizomes (roots) and the leaves. Our “Whole Plant Technology” combines leaves and roots in a curing and culturing process. The anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric are gently coaxed from the plant.
Thanks to our friends and family who also know that Mother Nature knows best, giving us an amazing gift which we call turmeric.
