or turmeric is a true miracle of nature.
Science validates its benefits.
The researchers measured the presence of curcumin in the blood. It is only effective when it is in our cells and must be bioavailable, so that the nutrient is assimilated and absorbed into the body, otherwise it will be rejected outright.
Initially, scientists observed that turmeric and its molecule were very poorly absorbed in the body, so could not bring the benefits that turmeric contains. For this reason, the challenge for researchers was precisely how to make it bioavailable.
Finally, after many years of research, the problem was solved, turmeric and its curcumin becomes bioavailable by adding fat, it will be said that it is fat soluble
In eastern countries where turmeric has been used for millennia, mixed with olive oils, the problem does not arise.
For this reason, for years, all natural health journals have stated that it is advisable to consume turmeric with a spoonful of fat.
Today, health professionals talk about liposomal curcumin.
According to scientists, the liposome will act on three points:
- Thanks to the enzymes of saliva and stomach acids to finish in the intestines, it thus acts on the digestive system by creating a wall to preserve the actions of curcumin, the liposome would thus protect the molecules of turmeric.
- The liposome will, so to speak, fuse with the membranes in the blood and cells.
- The molecules will be accompanied in the liver and heart.
An incredible list of benefits for the body.

Daily use of turmeric maintains the joints.
Just like when a bearing gets flu and eventually rusts, our joints need to be oiled to protect our joints and cartilage. These are cells called chondrocytes, responsible for replacing cartilage that is damaged by new. Not to mention that the daily use of turmeric also helps to protect the joints, fighting against free radicals that often trigger an inflammatory response.
When the chondrocytes are healthy, the cartilage covers the bones and absorbs shocks, so you don’t feel any discomfort in the joints.
