Anti-inflammatory Benefits of Turmeric

Adding all-natural turmeric supplements to you diet can help manage your inflammation

The all-powerful turmeric is an anti-inflammatory.  Combined with piperine, a compound in black pepper is turmeric’s natural supercharger. It increases the bioavailability of turmeric by up to 2000%! Bioavailability refers to the amount of a substance that’s absorbed or used by the body. This powerful combo is nature’s best anti-inflammatory. We believe you deserve the best we have to offer, and Limber Up is it. To reach the amounts of turmeric and curcumin shown to provide benefits, you’ll have to turn to supplements.*

Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a culinary spice that has been famous for centuries due to its medicinal value, used in traditional medicine like Chinese medicine, Ayurveda, and Unani. Turmeric dietary supplements are made from dried rhizomes and typically contain a mixture of curcuminoids.

Piperine is an alkaloid like capsaicin, the active component found in chili powder and cayenne pepper. It helps desensitize a specific pain receptor in your body, which can further reduce feelings of discomfort.

Limber Up may also help manage exercise-induced inflammation and muscle soreness, thus enhancing recovery and subsequent performance. Black pepper may improve the absorption of drugs and should use caution when combined with certain medications.*

Inflammation is the body’s defensive response against cell damage or microbial infection to remove the cause of injury and repair the injured tissues.

Inflammation presents with symptoms of redness, heat, pain, and swelling. It causes stiff and aching joints, fever, headache, loss of appetite, and fatigue.

Cautions About Taking Turmeric

Take charge of your health—talk with your health care providers about any complementary health approaches you use. Together, you can make shared, well-informed decisions.  If you want to take turmeric to relieve pain and inflammation, talk to your doctor.

Turmeric and Bleeding Problems

Piperine can slow down blood clotting. People with bleeding disorders should avoid turmeric, even if they aren’t on other blood thinners.  In theory, taking black pepper in amounts more significant than food might increase the risk of bleeding in people with bleeding disorders.

Turmeric can increase bleeding during and after surgery. It’s recommended to stop taking curcumin supplements at least 2 weeks before a planned surgery.

Turmeric and Gallbladder problems

Turmeric may increase bile secretion and worsen gallstones, cholangitis (inflammation of the bile duct), bile duct obstruction, acid reflux, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and other biliary diseases. Since turmeric limits iron absorption, you shouldn’t take it if you are on iron supplements. 

Turmeric and Pregnancy

Turmeric acts as a uterine stimulant, so it can induce contractions that result in miscarriage. 

Turmeric and Anemia

Turmeric supplements can impede iron absorption, shouldn’t be taken with iron supplements.

Turmeric and Diabetes

Black pepper might affect blood sugar levels. It can also interfere with diabetes medications and result in dangerously low blood sugar levels.

Turmeric contains oxalates, which can increase the risk of kidney stones. Supplemental doses of turmeric can significantly increase urinary oxalate levels, increasing the risk of kidney stone formation in susceptible individuals.

Turmeric might interfere with certain chemotherapy drugs, as seen with some medicines used to treat breast cancer, so always check with your doctor to see if you should avoid this spice.

People with infertility, iron deficiency, liver disease, hormone-sensitive conditions, and arrhythmia should not take turmeric include. 

If taken in high doses, turmeric may cause side effects such as nausea, vomiting, stomachache, diarrhea, or in rare cases, dizziness.  

Turmeric is generally safe when taken short-term and can also be applied topically to the skin by mixing into a paste with water.
