It might not be widely known why turmeric curcumin is good for your heart – but you are in the right place here!

Why Is Turmeric Curcumin Good for your Heart?

the CDC reports that over 120 million Americans suffer from some sort of cardiovascular disease with the majority being either atherosclerosis (plaque build up in the arteries) or heart failure.  And it is one of the leading causes of death in both women and men in America. These are sobering statistics, but there is hope for those who want to reverse this cardiac decline in a natural way.

Unfortunately, researchers have disc9vered that most nutrition supplements listed online actually have very little research data to make the cardiovascular claim of promoting or improving your cardiovascular health!  That’s discouraging, considering all of the “heart-healthy” supplements on the market.  Fortunately, recent research on turmeric curcumin does seem to bring positive results for cardiac function.

The reason turmeric curcumin is effective for your heart is due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. Specifically, curcumin is slow down the inflammation process, and reduce the oxidative stress that contributes to atherosclerosis in the arteries.  In addition, it is believed to have reactive oxygen species (ROS) scavenging properties as well as an ability to protect our heart and genes from toxins and pollution nanoparticles.*

But Wait…. There’s a Problem With Curcumin…

One of the major drawbacks to taking turmeric curcumin in supplements is its poor absorption, rapid metabolism and rapid elimination.  That means you have to put a lot in, and it won’t last very long in the body!

Or…. you can add black pepper to the supplement and it will increase its bioavailability, absorption and the longevity of the effects of the curcumin.  Most studies and authorities agree that adding black pepper to your curcumin (as long as you do not have intestinal issues that might be aggravated by the black pepper) will enhance the uptake of the curcumin in the body.  Some reports indicate it could improve by as much as 2000%. 

So Where to Find Curcumin and Black Pepper Supplements?

We have done that job for you.  OliPura® Joint was specially formulated with curcumin, and black pepper combined with olive polyphenols that are high anti-inflammatory agents that have been proven to be very beneficial for your heart.  In fact, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has determined that a minimum 5 mg of hydroxytyrosol and its derivatives from olive oil should be consumed daily by individuals – to be used by olive oil producers to use a cardiovascular health claim.  EFSA is similar to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) here in the U.S.

Or you can try OliPura® Advanced, which combines the curcumin and olive polyphenols with high quality, Alaskan, fish oils with very high levels of DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) – both proven to be significant in lowering total cholesterol.
