It seems like everyone wants to know about the turmeric health benefits and recommended daily amount to take as the awareness of this wonder herb grows. But the key is to make it effective or most benefits will be lost.tumeric health benefits

The main turmeric benefits are that it is a powerful antioxidant and has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Antioxidants help to stop the damage to our healthy cells, which increases as we age. It is curcumin which is the active ingredient that most benefits come from.

It has been shown to stop cancer in all stages, and one scientist even stated that it is "one of the most perfect designer substances for fighting cancer." It will also protect the heart and lower your bad (LDL) cholesterol, and new research is showing great promise in the treatment of Alzheimer's.

The turmeric health benefits and recommended daily amount go hand in hand, as you need the right amount and delivery method to gain these incredible benefits.

The best way to take it is in the form of a multi health supplement and I have seen many companies advertizing over 1000mg per tablet, but they have no special coating and so are a waste of time. Let me explain.

To get all the benefits the supplement must have a natural enteric coating otherwise all the goodness is lost to the stomach acid. This coating allows safe passage through the stomach and into the upper intestine where all the benefits can be had, and where the maximum amount can reach the bloodstream.

The reason 99% of companies don't is down to price as it will cost them more to produce, but it is vital to have. The next really important factor is synergy.

The turmeric health benefits and recommended daily amount really depend on what other nutrients it is combined with. For example when mixed with piperine, from black pepper, the absorption rate into the bloodstream can increase by up to 2000%!

This is important as turmeric is not easily absorbed on its own, it really needs the right combination. Also when these and other ingredients like green tea and ginkgo biloba extract are put together they create synergy, which means you get the direct benefits of each nutrient and the benefits from their interaction with each other.

Look for a supplement with 95% pure curcumin extract at around 50mg a tablet to get the maximum health benefits.

In closing, I hope I have shown how the turmeric health benefits and recommended daily amount are connected to the delivery method and combination, and if you follow this advice you will be going along way to avoiding many of the degenerative diseases further down the line, whilst enjoying improved health in the present.
