Yellow power 💛 Healthy facts about Curcumin Powder
Our Curcumin powder is extracting from the root of turmeric (Curcuma longa). Its colour is an orange-yellow crystalline powder with a natural food colour perspective and can be used in food and drinks as a yellow colouring agent.
Curcumin is a member of the ginger family and is the primary active component of turmeric - among others, it gives that spice the characteristic yellow colour. Curcumin is also a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
Curcumin was used in medicine as early as in ancient China. It was administered in the case of indigestion and stomach ailments.
Potential health benefits.
Curcumin can help fight inflammation and protects the body against chronic diseases. It is also known to have anti-cancer properties.
Curcumin can positively affect our brain and reduce the risk of brain disease. It also has a positive effect on the heart, specifically improving the functioning of the endothelium, the damage of which can lead to various heart diseases or pressure problems. In addition, curcumin slows down the ageing process, improves the overall condition of the body, and positively affects blood pressure.
Curcumin may help treat depression because it has anxiolytic and antidepressant potential. It has a positive effect on serotonin, which is also called the happiness hormone and dopamine, responsible for positive emotions such as joy and motivation to act.
Unfortunately, curcumin doesn't absorb well in the bloodstream and, because of that, may not give you the desired anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits.
But there is a way to help in curcumin absorption. Add a black pepper every time you consume curcumin/turmeric. Black pepper contains a compound called piperine, which allows the absorption of curcumin to be increased.
