I am so excited to share that I am in the process of launching a tasty drink mix made of curcumin, black pepper and prebiotic (inulin). This can be added into your liquid of choice - water, juice, almond milk - the choices are endless.
You might be wondering what curcumin is. If you have ever seen a bright yellow Indian curry, that curry is made with the spice turmeric. Curcumin is the active ingredient in the spice turmeric and the source of all its amazing wellness benefits.
Why do I think you will like my curcumin and prebiotic mix as much as I do? Read on to find out.
WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF CURCUMIN?
Studies suggest that curcumin can help break down fat, and is a natural anti-inflammatory. Chronic low-level inflammation can have severe health consequences over time, including heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease. Preventing inflammation, along with good digestion and maintaining a healthy weight, are key aspects of long-term overall wellness. Curcumin can support this.
Curcumin may also increase the antioxidant capacity of the body, increase levels of BDNF protein, and lower your skin of heart disease while supporting the immune system.
As you can see, the benefits of circumin are considerable.
WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF PREBIOTICS?
Prebiotics are different than probiotics – though many more people have heard of the latter. Probiotics are tiny microorganisms that include bacteria and yeast. Probiotics are vital in maintaining a balanced gut flora, and can support a healthier heart and even a better mood. Probiotics occur naturally in fermented foods like tempeh, yogurt, and sauerkraut.
Prebiotics, by contrast, are a type of fiber that human beings cannot digest, and that probiotics eat. Prebiotics are present in many foods that are part of a healthy diet, like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Prebiotics may support better calcium absorption for stronger bones, change how quickly the body can process carbohydrates, and aid in the priobiotic growth of gut bacteria. In doing this, prebiotics support reduces inflammation as well.
The type of prebiotic in my Golden Immunity Instant Drink Mix is called inulin. In addition to containing the other potential prebiotic benefits I just mentioned, inulin can help treat and improve digestive problems–specifically, constipation.
WHY TAKE CURCUMIN AND PREBIOTICS TOGETHER?
Taking curcumin and inulin together in a mixable drink, like the one I am launching, may offer synergistic benefits. These include:
Enhanced absorption and gut health
While curcumin has many wellness benefits, it is dificult for the body to properly absorb on its own. Inulin may help “carry” the curcumin to the probiotic bacteria so it can be better absorbed, thereby supporting improved gut health. Similarly, because both inulin can help with constipation, it is well-complemented by curcumin’s ability to help break down fat, supporting overall better digestion.
Anti-Inflammatory and antioxidant effects
Because, as I mentioned, both curcumin and inulin have anti-inflammatory properties, combining them may make each more effective. This is true for their antioxidant properties as well.
Blood sugar regulation
By slowing down carbohydrate digestion, inulin may help regulate blood sugar levels. Curcumin, on the other hand, may help support healthy glucose metabolism. Bllod sugar regulation an help prevent serious health problems like heart disease, loss of vision, and kidney disease.
My curcumin and prebiotic mix is a convenient and tasty way to access a wide range of potential benefits with little effort. I am excited for you to introduce it into your daily wellness routine so you can go about your day feeling your best, just like I do.
In the initial formula, we have added fructose and we recommend that it be taken by non-diabetic patients as a replacement for caffeine and/or soda drinks. Add extra honey to taste if the mixture is not sweet enough for you.
We are coming with a new formula without fructuose, and with xylitol. It will help support happier gums and overall oral wellness as well.
