Why Turmeric Gummies? The Gummy with Superpowers

Turmeric Gummies

We don’t need to tell you about the superpowers of turmeric. You’ve likely been taking turmeric (or curcumin) and enjoying its benefits, or you’ve read about one of the many scientific studies extolling its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. So what are the best turmeric supplements? There is a catch with turmeric; it’s hard for our bodies to absorb its active ingredients; technically speaking, turmeric suffers from “poor bio-availability.” That’s why we decided to use Seattle Gummy’s (SGC) gummy technology to create delicious, quickly absorbed, and highly bio-available turmeric gummies

What is Turmeric?

Multiple scientific studies reference turmeric as the universally acknowledged “Wonder drug of life.” And, as study after study examines turmeric and its active polyphenol compound, curcumin, it’s no wonder that ancient humans used this powerful plant to treat inflamed organs, liver issues, digestive problems, and to heal wounds. 

Turmeric, or Curcuma longa, is an herbaceous plant that grows a rhizome, which is a tuberous stem, and has a similar structure to roots. Unlike roots, which primarily offer stability, a rhizome’s main purpose is to store nutrients and help the plant reproduce. The turmeric rhizome is rich in many plant compounds, but the one we’re most interested in is a polyphenol called curcumin. 

Turmeric for Health: What Can I Use Turmeric For?

Turmeric is used as a food and medicine all over the world. Making up the base of many popular curry recipes, turmeric is a staple spice across Asia and the Middle East. Its popularity extends worldwide as many cultures embrace its delicious taste and powerful health benefits. It’s also been used in traditional Chinese (TCM) and Indian (Ayurveda) medicine for thousands of years. 

Studies suggest that turmeric and its active component, curcumin, are potent antioxidants and support a healthy response to inflammation. This gives turmeric a wide range of applications…a better question is: what can’t you use turmeric for? And since you know that absorbability is key to accessing the superpowers of turmeric, let’s discuss how your turmeric gummies can support you. 

Can I use Turmeric for Arthritis? 

With its anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric shows promise as a supportive agent for those with arthritis, an inflammatory joint disease. This review examined studies that compared non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and turmeric with subjects suffering from osteoarthritis in the knee. A small number of studies suggest that turmeric use offers similar results as NSAIDs with zero adverse side effects. A similar review shows results as the previous one with about 1 gram of curcumin taken daily. 

Can I use Turmeric for Pain?

As we saw in the previous section, turmeric and pain from inflammatory conditions like arthritis are well-studied. Turmeric’s potential use applies to more than painful joints; it may also be able to help treat post-operative pain. Postoperative algesia, or pain after surgery, can be a deterrent to healing if not managed effectively. A recent study in the Indian Journal of Veterinary Surgery tested a turmeric ointment on post-surgical wounds in rats and suggests that turmeric supports faster wound closer, reduced pain, increased collagen levels, and improves overall wound maturation rates. 

Can I use Turmeric for Inflammation?

Curcumin, the main active compound in turmeric, is considered an anti-inflammatory by the scientific community. This study reviews turmeric’s potential effect on inflammatory conditions like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), atherosclerosis, and psoriasis. Curcumin’s anti-inflammatory effect is thoroughly outlined, from the regulation of inflammatory signaling pathways to the inhibition of inflammatory mediators. IBS, atherosclerosis, and psoriasis may all benefit from the use of turmeric. 

Can I use Turmeric for Anxiety?

This study examines turmeric and its effect on anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Use of turmeric in rats suggests that it reverses stress-induced cognitive and behavioral changes and may have a protective effect on the nervous system. Researchers say that results indicate turmeric may be beneficial for anxiety. 

Can I use Turmeric for Depression?

Studies suggest that turmeric may be beneficial for depression. Nine eligible studies on turmeric and depression were chosen for review. An overall significant effect was found when depressed subjects took turmeric, and researchers suggest that further study into the connection between turmeric and depression is warranted. 

Can I use Turmeric for Weight Loss?

These twenty-one studies revolved around turmeric and subjects’ weight who have metabolic syndrome and related disorders. One study observed a decrease in BMI and liver fat after eight weeks of turmeric (curcumin) supplementation in patients with fatty liver disease. Researchers think that results may indicate that turmeric has a positive effect on BMI and a healthy weight.
