Vitamin-D uses

Since memory goes down the lane, vitamin D is often referred to as the “sunshine” vitamin for the simple fact that our skin stands to benefit when we are out in the sun. Needless to say, this vitamin is essential for normal growth and development. Severely low levels of vitamin D can result in soft, brittle bones, bone pain, and muscle pain coupled with weakness. People over the age of 50 have an increased risk of vitamin D deficiency and this risk increases with age.

Vitamin D is also essential to control the amount of calcium in our blood since our body uses Vitamin D to absorb this mineral. However, it is Vitamin K that ensures that the calcium ends up in our bones instead of in the arteries.

Vitamin D is Required For –

Strong Bones – vitamin D is responsible for the absorption of calcium and it’s been shown to greatly reduce the risk of fracture in two ways. First, it helps with the formation of stronger bones and secondly, vitamin D helps to maintain balance and thus prevents falling by enhancing muscle contraction.

Weight loss – Deficiency of vitamin D makes us feel hungry all the time irrespective of how much we have eaten. This is so because low levels of vitamin D interferes with the effectiveness of leptin, the appetite hormone that tells us about our ‘fullness’ quotient.

Memory – Our brain tissues consist of vitamin D receptors which suggest that this vitamin plays a role in cognitive function and potentially, the risk for dementia. By virtue of its inherently contained antioxidant properties, vitamin D helps to protect brain function since it stimulates proteins that are important for nerve cell function.

Immune System – Vitamin D helps regulate as well as protect our immune system. It allows our bodies to absorb calcium effectively. Deficiency in vitamin D is associated with increased autoimmunity to an increased susceptibility to infection. Vitamin D turns on key peptides in the immune system that triggers a strong anti-microbial response, allowing us to quickly and effectively fight off foreign elements before they can develop into a full-blown infection.

Sources of Vitamin D

Food – There are few foods that inherently contain vitamin D. In the winter season, it may be necessary to get more of our dose of vitamin D from foods since sunshine is limited.  Food Sources of vitamin D are cod liver oil, salmon, mackerel, tuna, beef liver, cheese, and egg yolks. Adding ghee in cooking will make the food rich in vitamin D.

Sunlight – Exposure to about five to thirty minutes of sunshine (without using sunscreen) during peak hours I.e. 10 a.m. to 3 p.m, twice a week on our face, hands, and arms are adequate to meet our needs. Remember that the sunscreen with an SPF of 30 can block 95 to 99 percent of vitamin D production. However, after five to thirty minutes of exposure, ensure that a sunblock or a cover-up is applied to prevent damage to the skin.

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.
