Long-used, much-studied turmeric a key Protandim ingredient

When you first learned of Protandim, you probably researched to find out its ingredients. Some–maybe all–of these ingredients were new to you even though they’ve been used in other parts of the world for centuries.

One of Protandim’s five botanical ingredients is turmeric extract. Turmeric is a perennial plant of the ginger family Zingiberaceae. It grows in southern Asia, most specifically in India where it thrives in warm, humid temperatures and abundant rainfall.

Turmeric has been used in Chinese herbal medicine and by natives of India for more than 2,500 years, possibly much longer. The list of health conditions turmeric may help to alleviate is impressive. Research suggests it may be helpful for the following conditions:

• Indigestion
• Stomach ulcers
• Osteoarthritis
• Heart Disease
• Bacterial and viral infections
• Cancer
• Alzheimer’s disease

On its own, Turmeric is a weak Nrf2 activator; however, when it is combined with the other ingredients in the specially designed formulation, Protandim is a powerful Nrf2 synergizer.

Turmeric is also used to color cheeses, popcorn, cake icings, cereal, yogurt, dry mixes, salad dressings, margarine, mustard and chicken broth. It has also been used in India for wedding and religious ceremonies.

Scientists continue to study the effects and benefits of turmeric. You can enjoy its benefits along with those of four other ingredients in Protandim.
