A Look at Turmeric’s Use in Traditional Medicine
First, let’s talk about turmeric and why it’s such a nutritional and medically beneficial supplement. You may be familiar with turmeric from the golden-yellow hue that it lends to foods like curry. This native Southeast Asian plant is not only used in many cuisines around the globe, but it’s also been an essential component of many cultures throughout the world, especially through healing rituals and traditional medicines.
There’s a good reason that turmeric has been used as a medicinal aid for centuries. Many of these benefits come from the main active ingredient, known as curcumin.
As with all of the ingredients in our supplements, Shaklee only uses natural and organic ingredients from the Earth. With turmeric, the science and benefits are sound. Many studies indicate the benefits of this long-used spice.
A wide variety of health benefits can be derived from turmeric and the compound curcumin. However, to truly get the health benefits, it helps to take a concentrated supplement. Shaklee has your solution.
Support Your Health With Powerful Antioxidant Properties
The Shaklee Turmeric Boost is the perfect way to get a full daily dose of turmeric and reap the health benefits this ancient spice can offer. Our extra-strength formula contains 500 mg of turmeric extract in each capsule, with a standard of 95% curcuminoids with each dose. Black pepper extract is added to help your body absorb the nutrients. Black pepper extract contains 95% piperine, which is a key ingredient that increases bioavailability.*
Compared to other brands on the market, Shaklee offers a superior amount of turmeric. As we mentioned, to get the most out of turmeric and its powerful medicinal properties, you need a concentrated amount of the curcumin it contains — much more than you could get by adding the spice to your food. With Shaklee, you can make sure you get everything you need.
You can enjoy your Turmeric Boost any time of day, but it’s best to take it with a meal or shake. This helps increase absorption and ensures you get the most benefit.* It is important to note that our Turmeric Boost is not intended for children or women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. To see if Turmeric Boost is right for you in these scenarios, be sure to consult your physician.
Turmeric Boost is, however, vegan and Star-K Kosher certified, so it’s extremely convenient to incorporate into nearly any lifestyle or diet. Additionally, we only use the best natural, organic, and sustainably sourced ingredients here at Shaklee. You can count on all of our supplements and vitamins to forgo the artificial colors, additives, sugars, and preservatives that you might find at other supplement companies.
Enjoy the Benefits of Curcumin
With our Turmeric Boost, you can truly get the full benefits of curcumin.
If you’re still fuzzy on turmeric, curcuminoids, and curcumin — let’s break it down. As you might expect, these terms aren’t interchangeable. Turmeric refers to the spice, which is part of the ginger family, that is used across the world in cooking and medicines. Curcuminoids is the collective name for the family of active compounds found in turmeric. The primary compound in turmeric from this family is known as curcumin, which is the ingredient that provides most of turmeric’s powerful health benefits, such as its antioxidant properties.*
Keep in mind that although enjoying turmeric on your food can provide you with some of the health benefits we’ve outlined, this isn’t the best way to get concentrated doses of curcumin. With our Turmeric Boost, you’ll get everything you need to get the highest concentration of curcumin, along with the ingredients you need to more readily absorb the curcumin in your body and increase bioavailability.*
If you want to truly get the health benefits of turmeric, Shaklee can help.
