We are almost around the time of the year when the exams are starting. Times are so, that students of any class are experiencing a tremendous amount of pressure to do well. All thanks to parental pressure, peer pressure and the fear of not doing well in life. The saddest scenario is that these days, students don’t study to gain knowledge but just to score marks which results in high-stress levels. In the same breath, I would also like to add that not at times, this exam pressure can also help you keep focussed and most of the other times it makes the stress skyrocketing high!
What do the common signs and symptoms of exam stress look like?
- Mood swings
- Feeling low and overwhelmed
- Lack of motivation
- Headaches and tensed muscles
- Feeling sick and having an upset stomach
- Losing touch with friends
Some of the reasons that can be responsible for the stress build-up which adds up to the above symptoms can be that the students feel that they are underprepared for an exam. They at times also feel the need to compete with others and get a certain percentage. It can also happen that they don’t have adequate time to prepare for the exam. Few students also feel the pressure as they find it hard to understand what they have been taught e.g. a particular topic or a subject.
A lot of suggestions are given to deal with the stress and anxiety related to exams. Some work and some don’t. Some work for a few people and not for everyone. One natural remedy which will also benefit students who are dealing with high-stress levels due to exams is the regular intake of curcumin. What is curcumin? It is a naturally yellow compound and a component of an Asian spice called turmeric.
Apart from helping to manage stress, curcumin also has many other medicinal benefits as stated in Ayurveda.
- DHA or docosahexaenoic acid dip in the brain can lead to high-stress levels along with anxiety. Curcumin increases the levels of DHA in the brain as well as liver tissues which in turn helps to improve the cognitive functions of an individual. This can lower the stress levels considerably.
- The cell regulatory effect of curcumin is well known for repairing the process of neurodegeneration. Neurodegeneration can cause stress, worry as well as depression. A rich antioxidant, curcumin helps to protect the proper functioning of the brain.
- A good night’s sleep is an essential element before writing an exam or even for a fruitful study session. Many studies have proven that curcumin can help an individual to achieve better quality sleep.
- Having a good mood helps an individual to have a positive frame of mind. Curcumin helps to enhance brain chemicals such as serotonin and dopamine. This results in good memory and better learning.
Please note that it is advisable to take good quality curcumin. The correct way of taking curcumin is along with a pinch of pepper for better bioabsorption of curcumin. Last but not the least, try and keep a positive frame of mind and calm for better performance in the exam. Wishing all the students the very best of luck for all their future endeavors!
Clinical Trial & Our Product
Since health care & medicine is an industry, formulations are controlled through intellectual property rights denying easy access to common people and maintaining the buoyancy for the interest holders.
Formula’s can be patented and that covers business interests that drive innovations these days.
So instead of conducting trials on the raw root, almost all companies promote clinically tested formulations of extracts to make it appear better then how the phytochemical was in its original state. Its like extracting an important organ from the body and then putting it on support system, expecting it to perform better in insolation then how it could perform when in it was in its natural form. The truth is, that the best way to consume a plant based medicine is in its raw form. Curcumin is one of the active ingredients in the root Curcuma Longa.
Since its more important to know what your food ate then what you ate, its important to know that the supplements you are using based on curcumin has curcumin from a gene modified variety of curcuma longa which suffers from an imbalance of every other mineral. You see a plant also behaves how a human body behaves when it is injected with steroids to gain muscle mass for body building purpose. The plants have higher levels of curcumin but all other secondary minerals found along curcumin in the plant get compromised as the plant can not feed all nutritions equally when it is designed to feed most of its nutrition towards developing higher levels of curcumin. It has severe side effects on the health of the plant and apparently on the people consuming such plants or extracts coming from these plants. However marketing and promotions have evolved to divert attention very wisely.
An extract of any herb can never be stored in its original state and hence needs base agents, preservatives which hardly leave it how it must be. We believe that access to medicine and healthcare is a basic right of every human and animal living on planet earth. Hence we do not first extract and then add preservatives or agents like pepperine to make the extract bio-available. This is the reason we never patent any of our products. We instead hand process the whole root we cultivate in our farms and share it with the people under different brand names for different health conditions based on the concentration of minerals present at testing. You can also buy the seed from us and cultivate it but it will certainly not be as potent as you get from us.
How potent is the active ingredient in the plant depends on the quality of seed, soil, water and environment. Our products work far better then most of the curcumin based supplements globally being used for Therapeutic benefits.
We do not intend to formulate or patent our products. So instead of choosing a supplement with an extract, choose wisely and go for the best and not the Cheapest.
All our products are cultivated, harvested, hand processed and distributed directly from our own farms to ensure that people who depend on our products for their acute and chronic problems get consistent supply of highest quality, ultra premium, medicinal grade, Non-GMO, Indigenous, Naturally enriched with curcumin, Wild Strand curcuma longa powder for therapeutic benefits. We cultivate this in the middle of a national park which happens to be the best breeding ground for Bengal tigers in India called Bandhavgarh.
