Viridian Turmeric Organic 400mg (30 Veg Caps / 90 Veg Caps): A natural anti-inflammatory and pain reliever, turmeric is rich in antioxidants and iron, and so can aid anaemia.
In India, turmeric has been used traditionally as a remedy for stomach and liver ailments, as well as topically to heal sores. Researchers found in the 1970s that it contained anti-inflammatory compounds called 'curcuminoids' - the most important of these being curcumin.
Curcumin has rich stores of antioxidants which can help protect the body from a wide range of age-related ills and degenerative diseases. Antioxidants are powerful preservatives, which helps explain why turmeric has long been sprinkled on food to help retain its freshness.
As a natural anti-inflammatory, turmeric is also useful for joint problems (such as aching, swelling and stiffness). Curcumin is even considered a standard anti-inflammatory medication in India.
These properties also help digestive complaints such as flatulence, bloating and mild stomach upsets.
