Benefits of high-potency 7% Curcumin Turmeric powder vs store bought Turmeric powder
Not all Turmeric powders are made the same or deliver the same effect.
Here’s 6 reasons why Turmeric Life’s high potency 7% Curcumin Turmeric powder is potentially a better choice compared to supermarket-bought Turmeric powder, particularly when making Golden Paste.
1. Higher Concentration of Curcumin
High potency turmeric powder typically contains a higher concentration of curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric that has been shown to have numerous health benefits. Store-bought Turmeric powder often contains only 2-3% curcumin, whereas high potency turmeric powder can contain up to 7% Curcumin.
2. Greater Bioavailability (Easier to Absorb)
Curcumin is notoriously difficult for the body to absorb, but our high potency Turmeric powder is formulated to increase its bioavailability. This means that more of the curcumin is able to enter the bloodstream and exert its beneficial effects.
3. More Consistent Quality
Store-bought Turmeric powder can vary in quality and potency, depending on factors like where the turmeric was grown and how it was processed. Our high potency turmeric powder is made using a standardised process, which ensures that the product is consistent from batch to batch.
4. More Potent Anti-inflammatory Effects
Curcumin has been shown to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties, and high potency Turmeric powder may be more effective at reducing inflammation than store-bought turmeric powder due to its higher concentration of Curcumin.
5. Has Additional Health Benefits
In addition to its anti-inflammatory effects, Curcumin has also been shown to have potential benefits for a range of health conditions, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, and cognitive decline.
6. All Natural
The good news is that our Turmeric Powder is all natural with no nasty additives making it all the better for you.
Is Supermarket-Bought Turmeric Powder Any Good?
Supermarket-bought Turmeric powder is not necessarily bad. It can still provide some health benefits and add flavour to your dishes. However, as mentioned, the quality and potency of store-bought Turmeric powder can vary, and it may contain lower levels of Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric that provides many of its health benefits.
Additionally, store-bought Turmeric powder may be mixed with other ingredients or additives to enhance its colour, flavour, or shelf life, which can reduce its overall quality. Some of these additives may also be harmful or cause allergic reactions in some individuals.
To ensure you are getting the best quality Turmeric powder, look for natural or non-GMO options with a high-potency, and check the ingredient list to ensure it contains only Turmeric powder with no added fillers or additives.
