The Benefits Of Turmeric Oil
If you browse our store, you’ll come across a range of Black Seed & turmeric products. Many of these mix the oil with other ingredients to create even more potent healing solutions.
This combo of super ingredients has an amazing effect on your overall health. Now, we’ve spoken about the many benefits of black seed oil before, so we won’t wax lyrical on those. However, Turmeric has a range of its own benefits that make it a potent healer in its own right. And when combined with Black Seed Oil, those benefits magnify enormously.
Let’s dig into what they are.
Benefit #1 – Lower Risk of Heart Disease
Heart disease is one of the biggest killers in the country. Generally speaking, exercising regularly and maintaining a balanced diet will help you to fight against it.
But Turmeric will certainly give you a boost.
It all comes down to a pretty complicated medical term – endothelium.
This is the name for the material that lines your blood vessels. Naturally, you want to make sure this lining stays in place so that your blood flows properly. Unfortunately, this material breaks down over time, which makes heart disease more likely.
Turmeric can improve the function of your endothelium. In fact, studies show that Turmeric is as effective as exercise when it comes to strengthening this important building block of the blood vessel.
Benefit #2 – It May Help With Eye Conditions
This benefit is still very much in the research phase, but it’s worth mentioning here.
In a 2018 study, researchers applied Turmeric in the form of eye drops to a collection of rats. They also had a control group of rats that had no treatment applied. They found that the untreated rats experienced 23% more cell deterioration in the retinas over a three week period.
This suggests that Turmeric may have benefits for those who have struggled with their eyesight. However, the jury is still out on whether capsules have a similar effect as Turmeric eye drops.
Benefit #3 – The Antioxidant Boost
We’ve spoken about the importance of antioxidants before.
These compounds do battle with the free radicals roaming around your body. It’s these free radicals that accelerate the signs of ageing. They also play a role in many age-related medical conditions. For example, free radicals attack cells and weaken them, which means your body can’t function as it should.
Now, Turmeric is a potent antioxidant on its own, which means it’s always worth adding to your diet.
But what makes it particularly impressive is that it also stimulates the production of your body’s own natural antioxidant enzymes. That essentially means that you’re getting a double dose of antioxidants when you consumer Turmeric.
Benefit #4 – It Gives You Better Skin
Following on from the point about antioxidants, Turmeric can reduce the cell damage that leads to a variety of skin conditions. The end result is that your skin cells are stronger and recover faster, which gives you happier and healthier skin.
One study, published in Open Access Macedonian Journal of Medical Sciences back in 2018, digs into the specifics. It found that Turmeric can provide a safe and effective treatment for the inflammatory skin conditions psoriasis. Better yet, the researchers examined the effects of Turmeric when taken orally. That means our capsules should provide similar results. This is a great relief for those who thought they may have to find a way to administer Turmeric directly to their skin!
Benefit #5 – It Boosts Your Brain
Memory loss is one of the biggest fears that many people have. Unfortunately, it’s also something that can come naturally with age. And it’s accelerated in those who are afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease.
Unfortunately, there are no known cures for Alzheimer’s disease. However, early research indicates that Turmeric may be able to play a part.
One of the few things that we know about the condition is that it’s a result of something called oxidative stress. When combined with inflammation, this stress takes a toll on the brain, which leads to the memory issues associated with the disease.
Turmeric’s status as an antioxidant means that it can combat oxidative stress.
However, what’s most important is that research shows that Turmeric can cross what scientists call the “blood-brain barrier”. This means that it’s capable of leaving your bloodstream and entering the brain. As a result, it’s able to combat the issues that affect your brain more directly.
The research into this is still in its early stages. However, several studies show that Turmeric can slow down the processes related to Alzheimer’s disease. That means regular consumption of it clearly has a positive effect on your brain’s health.
Benefit #6 – It Can Lower Blood Sugar
Having high blood sugar is the chief cause of Type-2 Diabetes. Often, this is a result of having a poor diet that’s loaded with carbohydrates. However, the situation intensifies when your body starts to develop an insulin resistance.
Insulin is the chemical that your body uses to break down the sugars in your blood so that you can use them as fuel. But too much sugar leads to an overproduction of insulin, which makes your body resist the chemical. You can think of it as being similar to taking too much of any type of medicine. Eventually, your body starts to build up an immunity to the foreign substance that you’re introducing into it.
Several studies show that Turmeric can reduce the amount of sugar in your blood. Furthermore, it also appears to decrease the amount of insulin that your body produces. This suggests that it does some of the work of insulin on behalf of your body, which means you need to create less of the stuff to handle your blood sugar.
The Final Word
The amazing benefits of Black Seed Oil are enough reasons to try our range of products. But when you combine that with the benefits of Turmeric, you have a potent healing combination for a healthier body.
