Turmeric stops platelets from clumping together to form blood clots. Atherothrombotic cardiovascular disease is a major cause of death. Reference Here https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/29052850/

How often should I take turmeric?

Daily, including it with any food. Remember that turmeric maintains its anti-oxidants at a low pH. So acidic foods such as fruit juices, yogurts, or acidic veggies like V 8 and tomato juice are good. Our turmeric products have a pH of 3.3. Consuming turmeric daily allows it to become part of your defense system, improve your immune responses, and cleans up unhealthy cell formations such as removing plaque from our brains, lowering cholesterol, and repairing DNA. 

 

Turmeric is not toxic in any amount. A relatively small amount is good unless we need more for diagnosed health conditions. As an example, using turmeric daily has been shown to reduce cancer growth, lower anxiety, and interrupt DNA damage. Turmeric in higher amounts helps to manage inflammation,  metabolic syndrome, arthritis, anxiety, and hyperlipidemia. exercise-induced inflammation and muscle soreness. 

Does turmeric provide more therapeutic potential than curcumin alone?

Yes, turmeric provides more therapy than curcumin alone because whole turmeric has over 235 healing compounds.

Turmeric has a profound healing effect on almost all diseases. The research documenting its therapeutic effect is very broad. 

Recent research reports the increased therapeutic benefits that whole raw turmeric with its many non-curcuminoids magnify curcumin's absorption.

How can we know if stand-alone curcumin is safe? 

Require the manufacturer to provide proof!

Curcumin can be extracted from powdered turmeric using chemicals or it can be made synthetically. If manufacturers tell us the chemicals used for extraction and show test results from each lot, then we know what we are buying. There is no value in purchasing a synthetic chemical when the plant derived chemical is available. Our fresh fermented turmeric and pure laboratory tested powder is a certain way to obtain naturally derived curcumin.

How can I find independent research on a particular disease ?

There are thousands of human clinical trials that report specific findings regarding turmeric's ability to treat or prevent a variety of diseases or conditions. But you want to ensure that you are looking at legitimate, scientific studies. The best way to do this is to narrow your search to articles published by the US National Institutes of Health (NIH).  Search with the following format: ...turmeric  <name of condition or disease you are researching> and site:NIH.GOV. NOTE: For example, if you were interested in how turmeric might help with arthritis, you would type in the following: turmeric arthritis site:NIH.GOV.  Our recent search using those terms found 151,000 "hits". That will keep you busy for a while.

Does 95 % Standardized Curcumin mean that what I buy is 95% curcumin? 

 NO!

 Reasons for this  answer:

1. Is it possible that we are buying something besides curcumin?

Unless a manufacturer provides the analysis given by an independent laboratory for curcumin content and purity by same lot #,  there is no reason to believe that curcumin exists in that product at all or that it is pure curcumin without other chemicals. 

2.  How can we know how much curcumin we are buying?

Suppliers can say 95% Standardized but provide any % as long as it is standardized to a consistent amount. This does not mean that 95% of curcumin is in the product. Labels with 95% Standardized should state how many mg. of curcumin, its source, and proof of purity. 

 3. Is there a way to prove how potent the curcumin is?

Potency depends on two things: how much curcumin (measured in milligrams) is in each serving and laboratory analysis proving its purity. A recent study found that "Curcumin extracts described on the label of a supplement source may not be describing the same principal-agent  from brand to brand.."

Is it possible to take too much turmeric?

The National Library of Medicine's Toxicology Data Network states no adverse effects are expected at doses of up to 8,000 milligrams per day. However, please remember that turmeric should be consumed as a food. But - other than a potential gastrointestinal upset - there is nothing in the research that states that excessive turmeric has an adverse effect. Turmeric contains such powerful compounds that prescription drugs are made from them. The chemical structure of these compounds is altered. A patent is obtained and they are a legal drug. Therefore, taking turmeric could interfere with your use of that specific "drug". Ask your physician.

Cardiovascular Disease

The active ingredients in curcumin have been known to reduce the plaque-forming ability in blood vessels; hence, reducing the incidence of stroke and other cardiovascular events. A recent study concluded that curcumin decreases the levels of inflammatory molecules so it improves cardiovascular risk which is inflammation-associated.
Cholesterol Levels

Administration of daily doses of turmeric has been known to lower LDL level and to reduce overall cholesterol levels. There is a post in our blog which details the experience which one of us had in terms of turmeric greatly lowering cholesterol levels.

Diabetes

In 2009, a study published in the Biochemistry and Biophysics journal found that curcumin can be valuable in the treatment of diabetes because it brought about signifi­cant improvements in blood glucose and hemoglobin levels.
Atherosclerosis

According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, atherosclerosis is a disease in which plaque builds up inside the arteries. This plaque is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances found in the blood. Over time, plaque hardens and narrows the arteries. This limits the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the organs and other parts of the body. Atherosclerosis can lead to serious problems, including heart attack, stroke or even death. Curcumin has been found to have a strong capacity to prevent lipid peroxidation, stabilize cellular membra­nes, inhibit proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells, and inhibit platelet aggregation; all important ingredients in the development of arteriosclerosis.

Cancer

There has been a great deal of research on turmeric's anti-cancer properties, but results are still very preliminary. Evidence suggests that curcumin may help prevent or treat several types of cancers, including prostate, breast, skin, and colon cancer. Turmeric's preventive effects may relate to its antioxidant properties, which protect cells from damage. More research is needed. Cancer should be treated with conventional medications.

The curcumin in turmeric has demonstrated, both in vitro and in vivo, to have significant anti-inflammatory effects, thus potentially counteracting cancer-promoting inflammation, which is a hallmark of cancer. Curcumin modulates a plethora of signaling pathways in cancer cells. Furthermore, CUR confers properties of electron receptors, which destabilize radical oxygen species (ROS), explaining its antioxidant and anti-apoptotic effects. Although curcumin has a low bioavailability, its role in advanced cancer treatment and supportive care was addressed in numerous clinical trials.

Don't use alternative therapies alone to treat cancer. If you choose to use complementary therapies along with your cancer treatment, make sure you tell all your doctors.
