Ginger is the Root of Antioxidants

leave a comment »

In April, I was introduced to Turcumin, the herbal food supplement that uses the ginger root as a source of antioxidants. Is ginger good for our body? Of course, it is. I wrote about it a month later – see The Fuss About Ginger, Turmeric and Turcumin. What is Turcumin? It is the brand of the herbal food supplement by Health Rich Pharma Corp. group. Every 500mg capsule contains Rhizome of Turmeric that helps in digestion and removes the free-radicals in our bodies. These free-radicals damage our cell membranes, tampers our DNA and may even cause death.

What is Turmeric? Is Turmeric good for our body? In my previous blog, I did a little research about Turmeric and the wonders it does. “In India, turmeric has been used traditionally for thousands of years as a remedy for stomach and liver ailments, as well as topically to heal sores, basically for its supposed antimicrobial property. Turmeric was a medicine for a range of diseases and conditions, including those of the skin, pulmonary, and gastrointestinal systems, aches, pains, wounds, sprains, and liver disorders. A fresh juice is commonly used in many skin conditions, including eczema, chicken pox, shingles, allergy, and scabies. The active compound curcumin is believed to have a wide range of biological effects including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antitumour, antibacterial, and antiviral activities, which indicate potential in clinical medicine.”

Since the time I wrote about it, I’ve taken one or two capsules after a hefty meal. Well, not religiously but if I remember to bring some or I remember at all. There’s a warm sensation a few minutes after taking it, which means those capsules are working inside your system. My term was “warm and fuzzy.” I’d always feel a little recharged or more. The Health Rich Pharma group says the turmeric, the rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plant of the ginger family, is working properly.

Turcumin comes in a box of 100 capsules that retails for 1,500 Pesos (or 15 Pesos per capsule). Not bad if you take two capsules per day or a P30 daily expense for better health.
