Is Turmeric For Weight Loss?
If you’re one of the millions of Americans who have spent many years struggling with the scale, this might be of interest to you! Turmeric, best known as a savory spice used in Indian cuisine, has amazing anti-inflammatory properties. It is known to be effective in assisting with such conditions as memory loss, dementia, Alzheimer’s, blood sugar issues such as type 2 diabetes and prediabetes, and even cancer.
But here’s where it gets interesting. Recent studies show that curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, helps combat obesity by promoting the use of energy by the body. It does this via a complicated biochemical reaction in the body that frees the body to turn white fat into brown fat. White fat cells are stored in areas like the abdomen, while brown fat cells are active in burning fat for energy. The more brown fat cells you have, the better you can burn fat, use your calories more efficiently, and ultimately lose weight.
This is not a get-thin-quick plan but rather a re-programming of fat cells. It’s helpful to people who have sluggish metabolisms caused by years of off and on diet programs that just don’t work for the long haul. Turmeric may be something you want to consider adding to your nutritional routine, in tandem with a healthy diet and gentle exercise.
At our office, we recommend an extremely pure line of natural food supplements, available only through doctors, called Standard Process. Standard Process has researched how turmeric is absorbed by the body and their formula is effective and well utilized by the body. Most of the turmeric found in stores does not absorb well and you will not reap the benefits that an effective turmeric can give you.
Throughout the month of July 2019, I’m offering 20% off your first bottle of their Turmeric Forte. Ask me about it during your next appointment. Turmeric Forte is part of the Standard Process MediHerb line of specialty products which are standardized to ensure optimal strength and quality.
