Lifestyle and genetics play a huge role in the causes of heart disease, which affects many people in the UK. Heart disease is a major cause of death, with diet, stress, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, as well as many other health factors leading to a build-up of fatty substances in the arteries, causing heart disease.
Nature has provided some important products such as organic turmeric, which here at Wellology, we use in our Adaptogenic Turmeric to help fight against inflammation and fatty build-up in our arteries which lead to an increased strain on our hearts. Decreasing inflammation and fatty build-ups can help to prevent heart disease and heart attacks.
Heart disease and Curcumin
At Wellology, we work closely with important resources provided by nature, and we understand the science and health benefits of different natural products. In the Wellology Adaptogenic Turmeric supplements, the organic turmeric and its main component and most active compound, curcumin, has been scientifically proven to have many incredible health benefits.
Curcumin is a natural and powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Inflammation in our bodies is a component in many different conditions and it can play a role in diseases such as heart disease, Alzheimer's, and cancer. This is why it is important to take supplements that can help fight inflammation. The health benefits of curcumin include the potential to prevent heart disease by reducing inflammation and damage to our arteries.
How does it work? Well, organic curcumin works by fighting inflammation at a molecular level, it blocks NF-kB (a molecule believed to play a major role in many chronic diseases). The NF-kB molecule invades the nuclei of your cells and turns on your genes related to inflammation, so it is important to stop this from happening.
Curcumin is also a popular natural resource due to its powerful antioxidant properties. Antioxidants neutralise free radicals (molecules that react with fatty acids, proteins, and DNA), and this neutralisation reduces aging and the risk of diseases, also helping your heart's health.
What other ingredients are included and what are their benefits?
In addition to helping to prevent heart disease, the Wellology Adaptogenic Turmeric supplements also help to support healthy stress levels and brain function. The organic Ashwagandha is an adaptogen and has been used for centuries as a medicinal herb with many health benefits, including anxiety and stress reduction, boosting brain function, and improving overall well-being, as well as lowering blood sugar levels, while maintaining healthy levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
Curcumin is poorly absorbed into our bodies which is why we have also added black pepper to our Adaptogenic Turmeric. Black pepper contains a natural substance called piperine which enhances the absorption of Curcumin into our bodies. The use of black pepper to elevate the absorption of the curcumin into our bodies means that the important anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of the organic curcumin can take effect. Ginger root is also used to encourage a healthy inflammatory response and to boost the body's immune system.
