You may be familiar with turmeric already, especially if you enjoy making curries and other Indian dishes. But, did you know it’s available as a supplement as well and that it can be quite beneficial for maintaining good health?*

What Are The Health Benefits of Turmeric

So, what is turmeric? Turmeric is a spice used in Indian and Middle Eastern cooking that gives dishes their yellow color. It contains compounds called curcuminoids, and of these compounds, curcumin, the most important one, has multiple health benefits. Here are the reasons you should consider adding a turmeric supplement like Osteo Bi-Flex® Triple Strength + Turmeric to your daily regimen.

Antioxidant

Oxidative stress may be involved in the natural aging process. Antioxidants can help fight free radicals, which may contribute to the premature aging of cells*. Curcumin is a plant-based antioxidant from turmeric root that can help fight free radicals.*

We hear a lot about antioxidants as they can come from a variety of different foods and vitamins. Antioxidant values can be measured in the lab by their total antioxidant capacity or “total antioxidants” using the oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) test. Take wild blueberries for example, one cup has over 13,000 total antioxidants! Other antioxidant-rich fruits and veggies that rank at the top of the list include, beans, artichokes, apples and berries.

But, did you know that spices such as turmeric are also an excellent source of antioxidants? In fact, on a per gram basis, dried turmeric was found to have a higher total antioxidant capacity than fresh wild blueberries in the ORAC laboratory test. However, it can be a challenge to regularly consume large quantities of turmeric as part of your daily routine. Curcuminoids are the key compounds in turmeric that are recognized for their antioxidant properties and give turmeric root it’s yellow color. Turmeric naturally contains 2-5% curcuminoids, but Osteo Bi-Flex concentrates their turmeric extract to provide 95% curcuminoids.

 

Joint Movement

Aside from its antioxidant properties, curcumin may help to deliver turmeric’s joint health benefits.*.*

No matter how much you love Indian food, it’s not possible to get enough turmeric through foods alone. That’s why you need a supplement like Osteo Bi-Flex® Triple Strength + Turmeric. It contains Glucosamine HCI, which can help strengthen joints and maintain joint cartilage essential for comfortable joint movement. In addition to Glucosamine HCl, this supplement also contains Joint Shield™ 5-Loxin® Advanced and Turmeric which has been standardized for 95% Curcuminoids to provide the most optimal levels of Curcumin available.

    I have heard of the benefits of using Turmeric powder. In fact, I have a small jar in my cupboard. I like supporting my joint health.
  2. I usually take turmeric for joint pain. I'll have to check this out.
  3. I had no idea this brand has one with tumeric in it! I love the health benefits of tumeric but due to heartburn am unable to take it. With these tablets being coated, maybe I'll be able to handle them better!
  4. I haven't really heard about the health benefits of turmeric before, so this was interesting. I use turmeric when I cook curries! x
