Turmeric for Joint Health
For several years now, turmeric has been elevated to the rank of “superfood” because of its many benefits: cancer prevention, reducing gastrointestinal disorders, liver detoxification, and more! Indeed, much could be said about the positive health effects associated with turmeric. Most of them are directly related to the anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric. However, to take full advantage of the virtues of turmeric, it is necessary to know how to consume it in order to optimize its assimilation by the body.
This is why Genacol designed its Genacol Anti-Inflammatory product, which aims at reducing inflammation and joint pain. Read on to learn more about this product.
Power of Curcumin
Curcumin is the main antioxidant compound in turmeric. Antioxidants help protect our body against molecules that are involved in the development of several diseases, including cardiovascular diseases and cancer. In addition, by reducing inflammation, regular consumption of curcumin can have a direct impact on reducing joint pain. But turmeric must be consumed in the right dosage and in the right form! Indeed, since turmeric is a spice, we rarely consume enough of it on a daily basis to enjoy all the effects of curcumin.
To observe a real effect on joint health, a good dosage must be consumed regularly and for a significant length of time. That means turmeric supplements represent a relevant addition to dietary habits. This is particularly true for people with joint pain, including osteoarthritis.
3 Genacol ingredients for joint health
As a pioneer in the management of joint pain, Genacol has studied the powers of turmeric and its active ingredient, curcumin. We have thus developed our Genacol Anti-Inflammatory product, which combines high concentration of curcumin with BioPerine® and our AminoLock® Collagen. Each ingredient plays a key role in preventing joint pain.
Curcumin standardized to 95% curcuminoids (the active compound) contains 40 times more anti-inflammatory compound than turmeric in its natural form. You then get the most out of the anti-inflammatory benefits of turmeric.
BioPerine® is a patented black pepper extract. It needs to be combined with turmeric to promote its assimilation by the body. Thus, our BioPerine increases curcumin absorption by 20x for maximum benefits.
Finally, our AminoLock® Collagen helps reduce joint pain, in addition to preventing it by participating in the regeneration of cartilage. Collagen is indeed an essential component of our body that contributes to the elasticity of tendons, ligaments and cartilage, and therefore to joint health. The AminoLock® Collagen specific to Genacol® has a low molecular weight, always with the aim of improving its absorption by the body.
Who is Genacol Anti-Inflammatory for?
This product may be beneficial for people who suffer from joint pain in the knees, hips, shoulders, hands, etc. The pain associated with osteoarthritis and inflammatory joint diseases can thus be greatly reduced. Moreover, the Genacol Anti-Inflammatory product is gentle on the stomach, unlike some of the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
If you take medication or have health problems, you should consult your pharmacist before including the Genacol Anti-Inflammatory supplement in your daily routine.
