‘I have on-going inflammation throughout my body from my joints to my bladder, and being allergic to anti-inflammatory painkillers, supplementing turmeric helps to alleviate this.’
Chantelle has found that using a turmeric oral spray alleviates the symptoms. ‘I find the results with the spray are much quicker and more consistent.’
What is the most effective way to take turmeric?
Curcumin is a compound that gives turmeric its rich golden colour and is the main source of the root's health benefits. However the content of curcumin in turmeric is only 3%. Curcumin extract will give significant health benefits compared to turmeric as a food spice.
Curcumin is very poorly absorbed and its molecules clump together when in contact with water in the gut. The key is to bypass the digestive system and be absorbed straight into the bloodstream.
To get maximum health benefits from turmeric it's best taken as an oral spray supplement, which is absorbed through the inner cheek.
BetterYou™ Turmeric Daily Oral Spray is the world's first turmeric supplement in oral spray form ensuring superior absorption to tablets and capsules... guaranteed.
