Nature’s Way Curica Turmeric is a natural supplement product meant to help people who are trying to live a more active lifestyle for better health or weight management. This product is geared specifically toward easing the pain that can occur from overextension during a fitness routine or other physical workout.
While Nature’s Way Curica Turmeric is not meant to help dieters directly with weight loss, it can play a helpful role in making sure the exercise component of the weight loss strategy is an effective one.
This particular formula is based on the curcuminoids found within turmeric, but it has been carefully designed to ensure that they are bioavailable. The reason is that the benefits of turmeric may have considerable potential, but the substance can be difficult for the body to absorb. Therefore, choosing products or forms of the ingredient that are more bioavailable – that is, that the body will absorb more readily – is quite important.
One serving of Nature’s Way Curica Turmeric is two capsules. These two capsules contain 600 mg of theracurmin (which is the enhanced bioavailability version of the turmeric rhizome complex). That ingredient is 30 percent curcuinoide, offering 180 mg of that substance. The package directions suggests that you take 2 capsules per day, but if you’re unsure, it’s always wise to speak to a doctor about the right dose for your specific needs and expectations.
The supplement is based on turmeric. This is a commonly used spice that finds its way into many foods in several parts of the world. It is bright yellowy orange and tastes somewhat like mustard. That said, it has also been used medicinally for hundreds of years. It is known to have anti-inflammatory properties, which helps to explain why it has been used for conditions such as joint pain and arthritis, stomach pain, heartburn, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, high cholesterol, headaches, colds, lung infections, irritable bowel syndrome, skin inflammation, fibromyalgia and many others that are related to swelling and pain. It is also believed that regular consumption of this ingredient may help to reduce the risk of some cancers.
For people who are exercising, this type of product may be helpful because of the anti-inflammatory properties, as well. It can help to overcome pain and discomforts after an intense workout, during the time that the muscles are recovering. That said, this is not meant to be used for the treatment of chronic pain or as a treatment for an actual injury unless directed to do so by a doctor.
