Premier Research Labs Turmeric is Grade 10 Indian Turmeric (rhizome) (Curcuma longa),
fresh-ground on site with nontoxic grinders, guaranteed not irradiated & is a bright yellow tuber (as used in curry) that has
been consumed for over 30 centuries in many countries for liver health.* The active
compounds in turmeric known as curcuminoids exert extraordinary liver
protection and rejuvenation properties. Curcumin is a potent antioxidant
showing activity as much as 300 times greater than that of vitamin E. Curcumin
helps stimulate the flow of bile and aids in fat digestion. Normal secretions
of bile are necessary for proper digestion as it alkalinizes stomach acids and
helps formation of chyme. Only the finest grade 10 quality Indian turmeric is
ground in PRL lab’s non-toxic grinder and then immediately encapsulated in 100%
vegetable capsules without any toxic excipients what so ever. Turmeric and
all raw materials used by their labs, must pass photoluminescent near- -infrared spectrum analysis to ensure
that all raw materials are non-irradiated and not contaminated with
Properties of Turmeric:
body’s healthy cells from the harmful elements of today’s environment can be a
challenge. With the extraordinary compounds in turmeric, such as curcuminoids,
the formation of free radicals can be prevented. Curcuminoids are highly active
phytonutrients proven to fight free radical formation in food as well as the
body's cells. They act to scavenge and neutralize existing free radicals.
Curcuminoids offer special protection and extraordinary building properties
for the liver. Nearly 200 scientific papers have documented the antioxidant and
immune modulating properties of curcuminoids, which act as essential protectors
against undesirable and potentially damaging elements. An example of the
significant immune-protective properties of curcuminoids is their ability to
reduce the stimulation of Long Terminal Repeat (LTR) gene and simultaneously
block it as described in a study conducted at Harvard Medical School in March,
1993. By reducing the activity of the LTR gene, undesirable compounds were
inhibited from being replicated. Another study showed that curcuminoids were
able to inhibit the activity of integrase, the enzyme that integrates a
double-stranded DNA copy of the RNA genome, synthesized by reverse
transcriptase into a host chromosome. This means the risk for mutagenesis or
runaway cell division is minimized. An interesting study examined the
population of Trinidad. About 40% of the population is of Indian descent and
uses curry in their diet extensively. (Curcumin is the pigment and active
compound in turmeric which is used as one of the ingredients in curry). Another
40% of Trinidad's population is of African descent and rarely uses curry. The
Trinidad study showed that persons of African descent were more than ten
times more likely to have health concerns than persons of Indian descent.
Although other factors may have influenced the results of the study, such as
sexual habits and genetics, the outcome is more likely due to turmeric’s
remarkable immune-protective properties. Another human trial studied smokers
and turmeric use. Sixteen chronic smokers were given 1.5 grams of turmeric
daily for 30 days, while 6 non-smokers served as a control group receiving no
turmeric. At the end of the 30-day trial, the smokers who received the turmeric
demonstrated significant reduction
in the level of urinary-excreted mutagens compared to the non-smokers. Urinary
mutagen levels are thought to correlate with the systemic load and efficacy of
detoxification mechanisms of the body. In addition, other research studies
demonstrate other detoxification properties of turmeric, including its ability
to inhibit benzopyrene, the carcinogen found in charcoal-broiled meat.
Joint Health: Perhaps due to their extraordinary
antioxidant potential, curcuminoids as found in turmeric may help the body
cope with immune stress without the toxicity of NSAIDs (nonsteroidal
anti-inflammatory drugs). In addition, many direct, immune-specific effects of
curcuminoids may be in part due to their inhibitory action on thromboxanes and
leukotrienes. Curcuminoids help stimulate the release of adrenal
corticosteroids and help increase sensitivity of cortisone receptors while
simultaneously preventing the breakdown of cortisone. This may explain why
curcuminoid supplementation has shown excellent results for improved morning
joint flexibility and overall joint health and function. Curcuminoids may be especially effective during joint “flare-ups”. In one double-blind clinical trial that
involved patients with joint concerns, the group taking curcuminoids showed
improvements in the duration of morning flexibility, walking time and joint
movement. The safety and excellent tolerability of turmeric and curcuminoids
compared to standard drugs is a major advantage. No toxicity reactions to
curcuminoids have been reported.
Daily Protection: Because of the proven liver cleansing and
rejuvenative properties of turmeric, supplementing daily with grade 10 Indian
turmeric may provide significant support the body’s primary detox organ, the
liver, as well as protection against environmental and dietary toxins.
