The Prevention Benefits of Turmeric Capsules and Turmeric Powder

When we talk about the power of prevention, you may immediately think of the big three factors: diet, exercise and lifestyle choices.  You’ve clearly done your research!  All-natural supplements are an excellent way to boost your preventative health efforts and Zokiva’s Turmeric Capsules and Turmeric Powder are a great place to start.  Turmeric has unique disease-fighting ingredients that will support your healthy body for years to come.

Internal swelling and irritation caused by a variety of pathogens and the natural aging process are the root cause of many diseases.  Many of the potentially harmful substances that enter our bodies are unavoidable in our modern lives.  They arrive via UV rays, food, water, cleaning solvents, beauty products and a host of other elements we come into contact with daily.  Short of living in a bubble (and even then you can’t stop the aging process), avoiding free radicals, toxins and other potentially damaging substances is just not practical.  Therefore, we have to do everything we can to prevent these negative effects.  Enter Turmeric!


Turmeric is packed full of antioxidants that help combat free radicals that threaten the health of our cells.  Turmeric contains an incredible compound called Curcumin that has powerful antioxidant and anti-swelling properties.  Curcumin is a rare ingredient and is what gives Turmeric its distinct color and flavor.  It also helps elevate the antioxidant enzymes found naturally in the body which makes it even more effective at prevention.

Why are antioxidants so important?  Free radicals can cause cellular oxidation and lead to mutations that cause disease.  But you have the ability to fight back with a diet rich in antioxidants and natural supplements like Turmeric Capsules and Turmeric Powder that boost your antioxidant intake exponentially.  Antioxidants can reverse cellular damage and protect future attacks to help keep your body healthy and operating smoothly.

Turmeric has been linked to many health benefits due to its antioxidant and anti-swelling capabilities.  Many life-threatening diseases including heart disease, diabetes, and brain degenerative conditions among others may be mitigated or potentially prevented with the help of Turmeric, according to studies.

Turmeric is especially helpful with painful internal irritation, both chronic and intermittent.  It is used to relieve pain for arthritis patients and can help with many digestive concerns including gas, bloating and IBS.  Turmeric has been used successfully for eye and kidney health issues as well.

Zokiva offers the health benefits of Turmeric in two easy-to-consume formats: Turmeric Capsules and Turmeric Powder.  Whether you prefer to take supplements in pill form or mixed in your food, you can reap the amazing power of prevention benefits of Turmeric.

What is Turmeric Powder?

You may not know Turmeric by name, but you certainly know it by color.  Turmeric is the spice most commonly used in curry that gives it its yellow tint.  So it is probably no surprise that Turmeric is native to India.  Turmeric is also found in other yellowy foods such as mustard, cheese and butter.  Most people don’t know that this brightly colored spice is full of a powerful active compound called curcumin, which has amazing disease fighting and antioxidant properties. 

Curcumin found in Turmeric is responsible for a host of full body benefits.  As an antioxidant, it helps subdue free radicals that cause oxidative damage to cells.  When cells deteriorate, the immune system becomes weak and the body begins to suffer.  Antioxidants like curcumin crush free radicals that attack cells and, extraordinarily, curcumin also bolsters the body’s own antioxidant quotient for a natural immune boost too.  Therefore Turmeric helps prevent and support treatment for a number of chronic diseases and conditions that are caused by internal swelling or cellular mutations.  These include the most life-threatening and life-altering, especially related to the heart and brain. 

Heart disease is the world’s number one cause of death.  One major factor that contributes to heart disease is weakened endothelium or lining of blood vessels that maintains many regulatory functions of the heart.  When the endothelium is not working properly, called endothelial dysfunction, it affects blood pressure, blood clotting and many other heart-related issues.  Studies also show that Turmeric reduces the incidence of heart attack in high risk patients.

Additionally, Turmeric is a remarkable superfood for the brain.  First, Turmeric helps block beta-amyloid that causes plaque to build in the brain and leads to degenerative diseases like dementia and Alzheimer’s.  Beyond protecting the brain from age-related deterioration, Turmeric also improves brain function.  Much like cells, neurons in the brain can not only make new connections, but also multiply.  Curcumin in Turmeric supports Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor, a hormone that controls the growth and function of neurons.  By increasing BDNF, curcumin helps improve cognitive function and memory, while also slowing the signs of aging on the brain and reducing depression, both associated with low BDNF.  In fact, curcumin is among the ranks of the most effective anti-depressant drugs and is believed to stimulate the feel good neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine.  Depression itself can impair brain function so treating it naturally is highly beneficial on many levels.

The phenomenal therapeutic and healing qualities of Turmeric extend to other areas of the body too.  Internal swelling can be an exacerbating element for illness and pain inside the body, but curcumin can ease internal swelling.  Turmeric is commonly used to assist in treating arthritis and joint pain.  It also helps painful skin sensations such as rashes, irritation, sores, bruises, bites and infections.  Curcumin soothes chest pain associated with lung infections, bronchitis and colds, as well as nerve issues such as fibromyalgia. 

Zokiva’s new Turmeric Root Powder is the most powerful way to enjoy the benefits of Turmeric.  It would be impossible to consume enough Turmeric spice to reap the incredible heart, brain and full body advantages.  However, adding a spoonful of Turmeric Root Powder to your meals will brighten your diet – literally and figuratively – for your health and wellbeing.
