Blood Sugar Levels

Cardiovascular diseases have become the normal killer of people across the world and the blame should go on our entire lifestyle. From the type of food, we eat and high-stress levels to poor weight management. Only a handful of individuals fall prey to this disorder due to their faulty genes. Before we dwell deeper into the disease, let’s understand what the function of the cardiovascular system is. Also known as the circulatory system, the cardiovascular system does an important job of supplying all the parts of the body with blood. This organ system comprises of the heart, blood vessels (arteries, veins, and capillaries). The major cardiovascular disease related to some of the life-threatening events includes stroke, heart attack, and aneurysm. Some of the common symptoms of the cardiovascular disorder are a pain in the chest (angina), nausea, cold sweat, shortness of breath, nausea, and fatigue.

Many facts prove that turmeric is a great spice to good health including keeping the cardiovascular system healthy.

How does it do that? Turmeric, the golden spice which is very popular in Asian countries has a polyphenolic compound called curcumin in it. All the health benefits of turmeric can be attributed to the presence of curcumin. Curcumin has the ability to lower cholesterol levels and thus help in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Dyslipidemia is the term given to an abnormally high level of triglycerides, cholesterol, and fat phospholipids in the blood. This is one of the major risk factors for any cardiovascular disorder.

cardiovascular diseases with Curcumin

Turmeric and curcumin have the following effects on the overall cardiovascular system:

  • The process of oxidative stress is one of the most common causes of many health concerns. Since curcumin is a great antioxidant agent, it attenuates oxidative stress. It has this miraculous property to scavenge all the free radicals in the body which lowers the risk of oxidative stress.
  • Studies also show that curcumin can help in preventing the clogging of arteries. Due to high lipid levels in the blood, plaque formation takes place on the walls of the arteries leading to atherosclerosis; a risk factor for strokes and heart attacks.
  • At the genetic level, curcumin is shown to affect the gene signaling pathways in such a way that plaque buildup at the molecular level is minimum.
  • Curcumin is also a potent agent that inhibits the process of angiogenesis in the adipose or fat tissue.
  • Turmeric seems to prevent cholesterol production in the liver and block cholesterol absorption in the gut. This results in the lowering of LDL or bad cholesterol oxidation in the arterial linings.
  • Turmeric also protects the heart by improving the endothelial function (improving the health of cells that line the blood vessels). The anti-inflammatory action of curcumin helps to suppress the inflammation, thus improving endothelial function.

In a study that was done in recent years in which the data showed that the daily intake of curcumin could reduce the lipid indices (non HDL and Lp (a)) which in turn reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases. It was also proven that the daily intake of curcumin did not have any side effects as such on the majority of the consumers. This is an excellent breakthrough because Statin, the most commonly prescribed drug for dyslipidemia is associated with many dangerous side effects like damage to the digestive system, mental fuzziness, liver damage, muscle pains, and aches, etc. It is advisable to discuss the use of turmeric with your physician if one is under some kind of medication.

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.
