How Turmeric Can Help Soothe Your Tummy Troubles

How Turmeric Can Help Soothe Your Tummy Troubles

Turmeric, commonly known as Curcuma longa, is the root of a ginger-related flowering plant. Turmeric, like ginger, has been used in cooking, particularly in Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian cuisines. Turmeric is widely used in nations such as India as it is believed by some to have numerous health benefits. Turmeric has also gained popularity as a nutritional supplement in recent years.

Turmeric root, like ginger, is available in various forms: fresh, dried, or powdered. And when combined with black pepper, the absorption of turmeric has been said to increase. 

Turmeric's main component, curcumin, is a potent antioxidant and has been frequently acknowledged as the "wonder spice".

Turmeric and our Tummy

Turmeric is known as a golden wonder spice to support the immune system’s health, stomach, liver, and joints. It has been praised by many for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities.*

Research has suggested that turmeric may assist enzymes in the stomach for healthy digestion while also supporting stomach mucus production. This mucus is the body's principal defense against stomach acid. 

Here are some more points where turmeric may help with your stomach troubles:

 

Assisting metabolism*

Digestion is a complex process that involves salivating, esophageal muscles transporting food, and the gallbladder producing bile to break down food. Our digestion involves so many organs and activities, so the process may easily be disturbed if you don't obtain enough required vitamins and minerals to support those organs and their functions.  

Instead of making drastic dietary adjustments to acquire all of the vitamins and minerals the body requires, why not try adding a spoonful of Turmeric to your cuisine every day. Its anti-inflammatory qualities, antioxidants, and fiber may help aid this process.

 

 

 

Promotes Gut Health*

You may be unaware of how significant your gut health is to your overall health. If your stomach is unhealthy, you may be more likely to suffer from different health problems. Improving gut health can have far-reaching impacts. Nutrient absorption can be enhanced, to help the body receive all it requires.

Probiotic supplements and fermented foods are usually the first things that spring to mind regarding gut health. Yet, adding a turmeric supplement to your diet, on the other hand, may help with promoting a healthy gut and general digestive health.



 

Helps with Gas Build up*

Too much gas in the stomach may be uncomfortable and even embarrassing at times. The food we take may have corrosive qualities, impacting the intestinal and stomach walls daily. With turmeric’s digestive qualities, it may help to soothe the digestive system and gas build-up. 

 

Turmeric is said to have compounds that assist digestion and help your body with the acids that cause flatulence. When you have gas, try adding a spoonful of Turmeric into an eight-ounce glass of juice and see if this helps these unexpected sources of gassiness.

Why take turmeric curcumin supplements?

The bioavailability of turmeric and black pepper (BioPerine) is one of the primary reasons why many people choose this concentrated supplement formula instead of just turmeric alone. It is important to opt for a high-grade supplement which is subjected to tighter safety testing and quality control to guarantee the ingredients for helping with absorption levels without impurities.

There are several more suggested usages for using turmeric that you may not be aware of. But, at the very least, you now know the relation between this spice and your stomach. Adding a dab of turmeric powder or curcumin extract to your diet may help support your healthy digestion. You may also incorporate Turmeric into tea, milk, and juice as an alternative for everyday drinks.

As mentioned before, some experts may also advise taking your turmeric supplement with BioPerine (black pepper extract). BioPerine supports bioavailability and circulatory absorption.

Why Omega 3 Fish Oil May Support Your Dry Eyes

Eye comfort is primarily dependent on enough moisture in the eye. Aside from the comfort of not having dry and irritated eyes, moisture on the eye’s surface protects them. The cornea’s outer layer is the “tear film,” the moisture-laden surface of the eye. The integrity of that wet film is dependent on the proper operation of three linked layers.

When our eyes do not generate enough tears to keep them wet, or when your tears do not work effectively, you may experience dry eyes. This can irritate your eyes and, in rare cases, cause vision problems.
