Restore your tired-looking skin with one of the best turmeric supplements on the market.
In this blog, we’ll go through why turmeric and curcumin are important for your skin and what their health benefits are. Stick around!
Why Does Our Body Need Turmeric?
Our body encounters several health concerns as we age, including inflammation. Inflammation occurs when the immune system wrongly assumes intruders are attacking the body’s defense mechanism. Examples of this are harmful bacteria and viruses. This triggers an abundance of white blood cells to enter the bloodstream or tissue where the supposed attack is taking place, which causes swelling and pain.
Turmeric from the curcuma longa plant is typically used for cooking but it also has many health benefits. Clinical research shows that an active ingredient called curcumin, which is found in turmeric powder, is proven to have anti-inflammatory properties. It also helps improve the immune system. Inflammatory cytokines can aggravate swelling from inflammation but curcumin regulates their levels. This makes curcumin supplementation a promising treatment for joint pain and arthritis.
The benefits of turmeric are countless. It also plays a role in helping with gut issues because of curcumin’s ability to lessen the effects of inflammation. It also helps treat IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). The turmeric root helps strengthen the intestinal barrier by smoothing the muscles on the gut walls. This resultantly allows food to pass through without irritation or pain. It therefore lessens the effects of gut inflammation and helps restore the gut to normal functioning.
How Does Turmeric Affect Our Skin?
In today’s world, a torrent of free radicals and oxidative stress swarm the body. These are caused by several factors:
- Enviromental pollution
- Cigarette smoke
- Excessive stress
An imbalance of free radicals can have damaging effects, namely oxidative stress. Because free radicals are both chemically unstable and reactive molecules, they are quick to attach themselves to other substances. This therefore includes our skin cells. Free radicals and oxidative stress weaken the activity in the mitochondria which accelerates the aging process.
Turmeric, however, has antioxidant properties that neutralise these free radicals. This prevents the from damaging skin cells.
Why Our Skin Needs Turmeric Supplements?
Dietary supplements containing turmeric help boost your intake of curcumin. Curcumin by itself, despite its powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, has poor bioavailability. Essentially, it’s difficult for the ingredient to be adequately absorbed.
Tablet and capsule supplementations are both harder to break down than liquid supplements, worsening the problem.
How YourZooki is Revolutionising Supplement Delivery
YourZooki is increasing the absorption of antioxidants and vitamins with a revolutionary delivery system using something called liposomes. They’re taking the supplement industry to a new level.
Nutrients must be both water and oil-soluble for effective absorption. This is so they can bypass the destructive environment in the gut. Liposomes and micelles encapsulate the nutrients in a small sphere. This prevents them from being prematurely absorbed or damaged in the gut. YourZooki ensures its products are highly bioavailable because the ingredients are better absorbed in the bloodstream, unlike other supplements that prematurely excrete the nutrients.
Here are Dermoi’s 6 YourZooki products:
Turmeric Zooki contains high doses of Vitamin E for extra anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. It detoxes the skin and neutralises free radicals.
This product hydrolyses collagen into separate collagen peptides. Collagen Zooki expertly breaks down the large collagen molecules and dissolves them into the body for greater cartilage regeneration and skin protection.
Glutathione contains high levels of riboflavin (Vitamin B2). This contributes to the maintenance of normal cell growth and the function of cellular mitochondria.
Vitamin C Zooki is a potent antioxidant that is extremely effective at protecting the body against air pollution and other environmental stressors. It’s great for tackling the causes of premature aging.
