Step 2) Calm your inflammation with Turmeric and Vitamin D.
Inflammation causes damage if left unchecked. By taking highly absorbable Turmeric and Vitamin D, you can decrease inflammation and reduce overall pain levels.
Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory with antioxidant properties. It comes from the root of a plant grown mainly in India and is a major ingredient in curry powder. It has been used for centuries in traditional Indian and Chinese medicine.
Curcumin is a major component of turmeric and is what gives turmeric its anti-inflammatory properties. When looking for a turmeric supplement, the amount of curcuminoids (curcumin and other related substances) is most important. There are many supplements on the market with 50-100 mg of curcuminoids, but you need at least 400mg of Curcuminoids per day.
Curcumin and turmeric both have low bioavailability, which means they don’t absorb into the blood stream easily. Turmeric supplements with black pepper or Piperine increases absorption. But piperine often upsets the stomach. Our Turmeric is made with Curcugen, a newly developed, highly-absorbable turmeric (39X more bioavailable than standard turmeric)*.
It is estimated that up to 70% of all Americans are deficient in vitamin D. They either don’t get enough of it from food or sunshine, or their bodies don’t produce it effectively. If you go outside regularly, you might think you are getting enough Vitamin D, but that is not necessarily true. You really have to have your levels checked by a healthcare professional to know for sure.
Most people link Vitamin D with Calcium because we have heard that you need a proper amount of Vitamin D for the calcium to be absorbed in your body. But Vitamin D is needed for much more than that! In an article written by Dr. Stewart B. Leavitt entitled “Vitamin D for Chronic Pain”, we learn that Vitamin D really should be thought of as a prohormone, not just a vitamin. Low Vitamin D will affect your sleep and the production of your sex hormones: estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. Vitamin D has its own receptors in almost every human tissue. Because of this, low levels of vitamin D really affects people with chronic pain. Low Vitamin D doesn’t create pain, but it does make people who are already in pain feel worse.
Although the FDA says the daily value for vitamin D is between 600-800IUs, we recommend taking 5000 IUs of vitamin D daily*.
