How Turmeric helps with Autoimmune Disorders

Updated: Jul 13, 2023

Recently, more and more positive results have been coming in from studies and scientific research regarding whether or not supplementing with turmeric can help with autoimmune disorders. The positive feedback we have received from customers who have bought our Turmeric and Black Pepper capsules has been amazing!

Turmeric is a spice that comes from the turmeric plant and comes from the ginger family : Zingiberaceae. It is often used in Asian food and has a warm, bitter taste. The most active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin which has potent medicinal properties.

An autoimmune disorder happens when the body's immune system can't tell the difference between its own cells and foreign cells, causing the body to mistakenly attack normal cells. There are more than 80 autoimmune disorders that affect different areas of the body. Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis and Irritable Bowel Syndrome are three common examples.

So how exactly does Turmeric help with autoimmune disorders? Put simply, it's the powerful anti inflammatory properties in this amazing spice that alleviates the pain and symptoms associated with autoimmune disorders. Turmeric contains over three hundred phytonutrients ("phyto" refers to the Greek word for plant). Among the benefits of phytonutrients are antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities in the body. Phytonutrients also enhance the immune system and intercellular communication, repair DNA damage from exposure to toxins, detoxify carcinogens and alter estrogen metabolism.

Nutrient Nirvana's turmeric comes with a small amount of organic black pepper to aid absorption.
