Did you know that inflammation is a common factor in many diseases?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The four horsemen of the medical apocalypse — coronary artery disease, diabetes, cancer, and Alzheimer's — may be riding the same steed: inflammation.¹ When talking about anti-inflammation, turmeric has been used for millennia and what sages of the past knew intuitively has now been confirmed by modern science. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The active constituent of turmeric is known as curcumin, which has been shown to have a wide range of therapeutic effects due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For example, in a review on joint arthritis, curcumin supplements showed benefit after 8–12 weeks.² In another double-blind study 700mg of turmeric extract twice a day reduced lipid profile (cholesterol) in subjects³.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Due to the modern lifestyle of refined carbs, alcohol, dairy and often living in air polluted cities, many of us could benefit from a source of anti-inflammatory properties and if you are not consuming turmeric every day, you could greatly benefit from mother natures neon-orange-hand-staining-anti-inflammatory gift.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In every single dose of Ode, there is 300mg of turmeric extract which is the equivalent of 150mg of curcuminoids which may assist in keeping inflammation to a minimum.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
