What is Turmeric Root Extract?
Turmeric Root Extract by Solgar is a food supplement made from turmeric extract. Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a plant that has been traditionally used in the Ayurveda, a natural health system created in India more than 4000 years ago. Today, it is still regarded as one of the main spices capable of preventing and treating a wide range of diseases.
Properties of Turmeric Root Extract
Several studies show that curcuminoids, the active ingredients of turmeric, have a strong anti-inflammatory effect, partly due to their ability to inhibit the synthesis of inflammatory prostaglandins. Curcuminoids also protect the cells against the oxidative damage from the free radicals and prevents their destruction while avoiding the replication of damaged cells.
Turmeric also contributes to the digestive health, enhancing the secretion of digestive enzymes, reducing the formation of gases. In addition, curcuminoids also stimulate the bile flow to the intestine, improving the digestion of fats. It can also relieve the symptoms of digestive disorders such as gastritis or hyper-acidity.
Moreover, turmeric is also a good intestinal antimicrobial agent since it inhibits pathogenic bacteria, viruses and fungi. Additionally, it supports the functioning of the liver by increasing the glutathione content and the activity of glutathione-S-transferase. These substances protect the organ against the harmful effect of toxins and free radicals.
Turmeric is used to improve the digestion, supporting a normal hepatic function, stimulating the release of digestive fluids and improving the digestion of fat. On top of that, it also helps to preserve the proper functioning of the immune system while providing significant antioxidant properties.
