Logo Unique Health Benefits of Turmeric

Turmeric, a plant related to ginger, is grown in many Asian countries and tropical regions. It’s a common ingredient in curry powders, common in many Indian and Asian dishes, and is used as a coloring for foods, fabrics and cosmetics. The underground portions of the plant can be dried and made into capsules, tablets, extracts, powders or teas.

Turmeric has long been used for medicinal purposes, dating back thousands of years. Turmeric has natural anti-inflammatory compounds called curcuminoids that have been associated with maintaining good health.*

Muscle Performance & Recovery
In a meta-analysis of 11 studies specifically related to sports performance, researchers looked at a wide range of curcumin supplement dosages, study timeframes, and outcomes such as recovery, inflammation, and muscle soreness. This research review found numerous benefits, with no adverse side effects reported, in athletes and subjects who were regularly physically active.

Lara Gomes Suhett, Ph.D.(c) of the Department of Nutrition and Health at the Federal University of Viçosa in Brazil, concluded that these results could be attributed to curcumin’s contribution to the reduction of inflammation and oxidative stress, reduction of pain and muscle damage, improved muscle recovery and improved gastrointestinal function.
