It is a herbaceous plant from south-eastern Asia, widely used in India, due to its properties: anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, pain-relieving, regenerative.
Its qualities have led us to choose it as the main ingredient of our scientific office and our toothpastes.
The only flaw is that it is very low absorbed by our body. This is because it has a low bioavailability, that is, once ingested, it is almost completely expelled into the faeces and urine, dispersing most of its positive effects.
Our studies have focused precisely on this: being able to make our body absorb a higher percentage of this substance using a toothpaste.
As a result 4 times higher absorption was achieved compared to products containing the same active ingredient, this has very positive implications such as:
- An improvement in the health of the oral apparatus;
- A major prevention of many dental symptoms
The beneficial effects of Curcumin on your mouth are:
- Lowers the level of pathogenic bacteria;
- Regulates and improves the microenvironment of the mouth;
- Restores the physiological gingival flora;
- It has a regenerative effect on the bone cells around the tooth, very useful for those with dental prostheses and even more so for those who have to put them;
- Decreases tooth decay;
- Helps maintain a healthy dental structure in the long term.
Turmeric is therefore a spice rich in beneficial properties. For example, consumption:
- Improves the functioning of the stomach and intestines and moreover helps to fight cholesterol, since it facilitates the disposal of excess lipids;
- It has anti-inflammatory properties;
- Antioxidant properties;
- Choleretic properties;
- Anti-tumor properties;
- Healing properties;
- Digestive properties;
- Antidepressant properties;
- Antibacterial properties;
- Pain-relieving properties;
- Detoxifying properties;
- Prevents and reduces inflammation;
- Relieves joint pain;
- Beneficial for brain and nervous system;
- It is a natural painkiller;
- Protects the liver;
- It helps digestion;
- It limits the action of free radicals;
- Strengthens the immune system;
- Prevents type 2 diabetes;
- It helps the body to detoxify;
- Prevents bacterial infections;
- Promotes wound healing;
- Contributes to the effectiveness of antidepressant drugs;
- Increase memory;
- Increases the brain’s ability to self-heal;
- Helps prevent and fight cancer.
Taurine is active in reducing muscle fatigue and improving concentration.
Some research suggests that:
- It stimulates the muscles to work harder and longer
- Limit the factors responsible for muscle fatigue
- protects muscles from cell damage and stress.
Taurine counteracts the aging process thanks to its anti-free radical action.
- taurine is active in reducing muscle fatigue and improving concentration;
- it regulates the heartbeats, prevents the hyperactivity of brain cells and has a role of primary importance in the visual process, contrasts the excessive activity of brain cells and is essential in the visual process.
Furthermore, some research suggests that:
- It stimulates the muscles to work harder and longer (especially in animals);
Increases the ability of muscles to contract and produce strength (always in animals);
- It helps “liminate” the factors responsible for fatigue in men;
- Protects muscles from cellular damage and stress in humans;
- Increases fat burning during exercise in humans;
- Reduces fatigue and muscle damage during training (in mice);
- In human studies, trained athletes who took taurine as a supplement found an improvement in their physical performance. Cyclists and runners were able to travel longer distances with less effort.
Its stimulating property acts on all systems thanks to its ability to temporarily increase function and activity in a rapid manner with consequent improvement of reflexes, acceleration of the nervous response, reduction of mental fatigue and enhancement of physical endurance, and memory, making it suitable for those who study or have an intense sporting activity.
As a supplement, melatonin is mainly used for sleep disorders, especially for insomnia due to external causes (different time zones, work shifts, etc.) but also to regulate the sleep-wake rhythm of those who simply have difficulty falling asleep. This substance in fact, works very well in the initial phase of insomnia as it decreases the time needed to sleep by slowing down the body’s functions and thus reconciling rest.
The main role of melatonin, whose production by the body is minimal in the first months of life, is the regularization of the circadian rhythm.
It has excellent calming properties, in fact it is called a relaxing herb.
Helps to regularize the sleep-wake rhythm.
