 turmeric helps reduce inflammationQ: I am supporting an anti inflammatory diet and have heard that tumeric is good to use. I also take fish oil. What do you think?

A: Turmeric is very good to use to help reduce inflammation and protect your cells.  C3 Curcumin by DFH is an excellent product to help with these issues.  Here is a list of benefits of curcumin (the active component of turmeric):

IMMUNE SYSTEM REGULATION
• Inflammation—injury, post-operative, joint wear and tear (osteoarthritis)
• Allergic reactions—asthma
• Autoimmune activity reduction—rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis in animals
• NK cell activity increase
• Reduced cancer development and spread in certain animal models of carcinogenesis: breast, prostate, colon, pancreatic, glioma, ovarian

ANTIMICROBIAL
• Antiviral, Epstein Barr, and HIV virus
• Antibacterial, antiparasitic

GI PROTECTION & HEALING
• stomach ulcer, Crohn’s or proctitis

CARDIOVASCULAR PROTECTION
• reduces cholesterol oxidation and levels, increases HDL
• reduces fibrinogen
• reduces platelet aggregation

BRAIN PROTECTION
• reduced brain damage following ischemia (reduced blood flow)
• reduced development and regression of Alzeimer’s disease progression in animal models
• reduced gliomas (brain tumors)
• antidepressant effects

LIVER PROTECTION from alcohol and aflatoxin (peanut fungus)

TOXIC METAL CHELATOR
• Effective chelator of copper and iron

ANTIOXIDANT

BILE SUPPORT

Taking a good quality fish oil also has a variety of health benefits, including reducing inflammation.  I see you’ve been taking Finest Fish Oil Capsules by Pharmax for a while now, which is an excellent brand!
