Let’s talk about the ben­e­fits of turmeric

The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR BODY -

Are you on the move, or you just want to move more eas­ily?

Turmeric is your so­lu­tion.

As the weather gets cooler, we move into train­ing for win­ter sports, and be­ing out­side is not quite as wel­com­ing as in the sum­mer months. Curl­ing up on the couch can seem a much bet­ter op­tion than get­ting ac­tive!

In the cold, it’s harder on our body and mind to get mov­ing.

Whether you’re an ac­tive per­son want­ing ul­ti­mate mus­cle and joint re­cov­ery from train­ing or com­pe­ti­tion, or some­one who wants to keep your mus­cles and joints in their best con­di­tion and sup­port com­fort, a com­bi­na­tion of turmeric and mag­ne­sium is worth a test run.

Turmeric has long been known as a yel­low cook­ing spice, but in its stronger form, it is much more.

This po­tent an­tiox­i­dant helps to pro­tect cells from free rad­i­cal dam­age.

Cur­cumin is the or­ange pig­ment in turmeric and of­fers nu­mer­ous health ben­e­fits, many of which are as­so­ci­ated with joint mo­bil­ity and com­fort.

It sup­ports joints and mus­cles, car­dio­vas­cu­lar func­tion, di­ges­tive health, and even youth­ful, ra­di­ant skin. Re­searchers recog­nise its pow­er­ful ac­tiv­ity and in­ter­ac­tion within the body.

Un­for­tu­nately, cur­cumin in its nat­u­ral state is poorly ab­sorbed. Meriva of­fers a patented de­liv­ery form of cur­cumin, where cur­cumin is at­tached to phos­pho­lipids.

This process has been shown to im­prove the bioavail­abil­ity of cur­cumin – the body can read­ily ab­sorb cur­cumin phos­pho­lipid com­plex, re­sult­ing in more cur­cumin reach­ing the cells.

A renowned min­eral for healthy joints and move­ment is mag­ne­sium. With­out mag­ne­sium we could not pro­duce en­ergy, so our mus­cles would be per­ma­nently in a state of con­trac­tion, hence mag­ne­sium is a nat­u­ral mus­cle re­laxer and con­sid­ered the an­tistress min­eral. Stress is not just a men­tal state – it is also phys­i­cal, and in ei­ther form, it de­pletes the body’s mag­ne­sium lev­els.

Adding mag­ne­sium in times of stress can ef­fec­tively sup­port the body’s re­cov­ery.

Light­house Turmeric Com­plex with Mag­ne­sium uniquely com­bines marine mag­ne­sium and meriva cur­cumin for mus­cle re­lax­ation and joint com­fort.

Nat­u­ral marine mag­ne­sium is sourced from sea­wa­ter and has a su­pe­rior ab­sorp­tion.

With no mag­ne­sium ox­ide, it is gen­tle on the stom­ach and suit­able for those who ex­pe­ri­ence ir­ri­ta­tion in the di­ges­tive tract from mag­ne­sium sup­ple­ments.

If you have pre­ex­ist­ing med­i­cal con­di­tions, or if symp­toms per­sist, con­sult a health pro­fes­sional be­fore use.

Al­ways read the la­bel and take as di­rected.

Tumeric is a po­tent an­tiox­i­dent and of­fers nu­mer­ous health ben­e­fits.
