After a century of experimentation with artificial compounds designed to alter body chemistry through pills and vaccines, people are waking up to the fact that good health does not come from a pharmacy. Highly processed diets full of sugar and chemicals, combined with sedentary lifestyles, create metabolic disorders that lead to poor health and premature death.
Drugs are designed to treat symptoms, not cure or heal, creating lifelong customers whose health steadily declines. Amidst a growing demand for healthy alternatives, researchers are revisiting natural compounds derived from food for achieving and maintaining optimal wellness.
Tumeric and its derivative polyphenol, curcumin, have earned their place among top superfoods that support health and longevity. But you don’t need to eat more spicy foods to leverage cucumin’s amazing properties. Now, you can reap the natural health benefits of curcumin via intramuscular (IM) injections.
Discover Curcumin’s Amazing Health Benefits
Curcumin is a yellow polyphenol compound found in the spice tumeric. In the United States, turmeric can be found in the spice aisle, labeled as “Cumin.”
Polyphenols are naturally occurring organic compounds found in plants, made up of a variety of phenol units. You are probably familiar with the flavor of tumeric if you love Mexican, Indian or Middle Eastern cuisine.
In addition to punching up the flavor of a broad range of popular international dishes, tumeric and its derivative curcumin have long been lauded for their positive impact on human health. Today, new research confirms a plethora of health benefits that can be obtained by consuming curcumin.
Curcumin for Inflammation
One of the most destructive consequences of modern high-stress lifestyles is chronic inflammation. Whenever you face an imminent threat, your body releases fight-or-flight hormones that heighten your ability to respond. But when your immune system is perpetually on high alert, those same hormones can cause chronic inflammation that harms your health.
When you combine chronic stress and inflammation with poor diet, inadequate sleep and lack of exercise, you are setting yourself up for metabolic syndrome, a cluster of symptoms marked by:
- high blood pressure
- heart disease
Tumeric’s anti-inflammatory properties can help to calm chronic inflammation and reverse metabolic syndrome, especially when you adopt other healthy lifestyle behaviors.
Tumeric for Pain Relief
Everyone experiences joint and muscle pain from time to time, whether from traumatic injury, overuse during sports or exercise, or conditions like arthritis associated with aging.
In most cases, pain and inflammation go hand-in-hand, because excess interstitial fluid compresses nerve endings and inhibits nerve gliding, sending hyper-sensitized pain signals to the brain. Tumeric’s anti-inflammatory properties work to eliminate excess fluid, to put out the fire that contributes to and intensifies pain.
Curcumin’s Anti-Aging Properties
Aging can be defined as an irreversible progression toward physiological decline, marked by a number of age-related conditions, such as:
- metabolic diseases
- musculoskeletal dysfunction
- neurodegenerative disorders
Oxidative stress is known to damage DNA found in the cellular nuclei and mitochondria, leading to mitochondrial dysfunction, physiological changes and cell death throughout the body and brain.
Curcumin’s anti-aging properties support cellular health by combatting cell destruction from oxidative stress. Cucumin is also known to slow the progression of cancer cells. To protect and repair DNA and combat aging, combine curcumin injections with NAD IV therapy.
Tumeric and Brain Health
Cognitive dysfunction is on the rise world-wide. Once considered diseases of old age, conditions like dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other neurological disorders are appearing in ever-younger populations, placing a burden on caregivers and leading to premature death. Modern lifestyles and environmental toxins are thought to play a significant role.
Curcumin is an effective agent for the prevention and treatment of brain diseases. It combats brain disorders by:
- Acting on certain target proteins
- Working as an antioxidant
- Reducing chronic inflammation
- Protecting nervous tissue
- Preventing telomere shrinkage
When combined with healthy lifestyle choices, curcumin can be a game-changer that promotes brain health and improves overall quality of life.
Oral Supplements vs Curcumin IM Injections
Using curcumin to spice up your favorite dishes is one way to leverage its health advantages, and curcumin can also be taken as an oral supplement. However, when taken orally, curcumin often has poor bioavailability, mostly due to low absorption and rapid elimination during the digestive process.
When delivered by IM injection, curcumin rapidly enters your bloodstream, becoming immediately available for metabolic processes. Regular boosters ensure that you get the same potent dose of curcumin each time, eliminating guesswork and saving you money on supplements that don’t work.
Unlike drugs that target symptoms without improving health, curcumin has no known toxicity, and no negative side effects.
