Coconut Curry Turmeric Chicken ( Whole30, Anti Inflammatory)

Let’s get cooking with spices!
contributed by: Dr. Cynthia van Hellemond DC

Curcumin is an important chemical and one of the most well-studied bioactive ingredients found in Turmeric. The Turmeric plant grows in India and Indonesia and is responsible for the production of the flavourful, yellow-pigmented spice found in curry we know as Turmeric. The amazing benefits - read more
Curcumin Active (Natural Tumeric Medicine) works quickly to help relieve severe pain and conditions that stem from inflammation such as arthritis and chronic pain. Studies have shown curcumin is as effective as various common NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) in osteoarthritis sufferers, but much safer. Curcumin helps reduce gastrointestinal inflammation and promotes healthy cell growth. It is also known to be a powerful anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, skin and wound healer, liver and gallbladder support, digestive aid, cardiovascular support and much more.

Those with severe osteoarthritis and joint pain, chronic inflammation and intestinal inflammatory disorders may greatly benefit from Curcumin Active.

 WHY IS THIS DIFFERENT? The key to the Curcumin Active's effectiveness lies within its ability to remain free. This free state of curcumin is achieved due to the formula’s ability to avoid being rapidly broken down within the body. Because free curcumin retains its “unbroken” form, it is then taken up through the blood stream where it is stable, concentrated, and retains maximum effectiveness for up to 24 hours.
