Turmeric is a plant in the ginger family that is native to Southeast Asia and grown primarily in India. It is most commonly used in traditional medicine practices such as Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine for its high levels of curcumin, which is a polyphenol (chemical compound found in plants) that is a powerful aid in managing inflammation, metabolic syndrome, arthritis, anxiety, and more.

The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin are the two primary mechanisms that contribute to the health benefits of this powerful plant. Inflammation has been shown to be an underlying factor in many chronic diseases and conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, psoriasis, diabetes, obesity, depression, and fatigue- to name a few. Curcumin has been shown to suppress inflammation and therefore, could aid in the treatment of some of these conditions.

Along with this, curcumin has been shown to be helpful for improving symptoms of Metabolic syndrome, which can include: insulin resistance, hyperglycemia, hypertension, obesity, and cholesterol levels. The curcumin found in turmeric has been shown to aid in improving insulin sensitivity, suppressing adipogenesis (the formation of fatty tissue), and reducing high blood pressure, inflammation, and oxidative stress. With this being said, overweight and obesity are linked to chronic low-grade inflammation and at the root of this are pro-inflammatory cytokines that are released by the body. These cytokines (proteins that regulate intensity and duration of immune response) are figured to be at the core of certain complications associated with cardiovascular disease and diabetes. With this being said, tackling inflammation is crucial to live a healthy life!

Cymbiotika’s Adrenal Supertonic contains an organic turmeric root juice that has been freeze dried for optimal preservation and bio-availability. This type of turmeric juice is 80x more potent than crude (raw) ginger juice and contains zero additives or fillers. We chose to use this juice in our Adrenal Supertonic because it has retained its flavor profile, enzymes, amino acids and nutritional properties-- making it the most potent form of turmeric to add into this formula for its numerous healing benefits.
