What do apple slices have to do with turmeric?
You are a kid who loves apple slices. Each day you go to the local fruit stand and give him your dollar. He gives you an apple slice and you are so happy. You are “Keeping the doctor away.(?)”
You go to visit your cousin who also loves apple slices. When you accompany him to his local vendor he gives the man a dollar and a half and the man gives him 19 apple slices.
How do you feel about your vendor and the apple slice you get? You are getting only 5% while your cousin is getting 95%.
From Apples to Turmeric
You see, this is like turmeric. If one is taking turmeric from the grocery store spice aisle, he or she is only getting about 5% curcumins, the active ingredient in turmeric root. If he or she is taking Shaklee’s Turmeric Boost, they are getting 95% curcumins. Shaklee is using a Standardized Extract of turmeric. Standardized! Understand how much more value and benefit is there in a standardized extract. Standardized Turmeric extract is heads above Turmeric root.
Turmeric has been used for ages as a seasoning for food. Many began to see the health benefits of this spicy root as well. As with any food item, the nutritional value varies from product to product. This orange may have many times the vitamin C as that orange. Growth and processing methods also affects the nutritional value of foods.
I only began using turmeric when Shaklee introduced Turmeric Boost. After a short time, I noticed a big difference in a cranky hip. It is so much better now that I am being consistent with my “curcumin” intake.
