Benefits of Turmeric for Hemochromatosis

Benefits of Turmeric for Hemochromatosis | Turmeric | Article | AC Healthy Solutions
Hemochromatosis - a genetic disorder that causes iron overload in the body.

Clinical research has shown that Turmeric is one of the BEST natural remedies, to reliably reduce the build-up of iron in the body. Turmeric can lower ferritin by chelating iron from the body.

Turmeric has numerous health benefits, and whilst medical researchers have long understood a wide range of turmeric benefits, a lot of the focus has been upon pain relief from this anti-inflammatory supplement. But the fact that a real, tangible turmeric benefit is to reduce too much iron in the body (like in Hereditary Hemochromatosis) is really intriguing.

Naturally, it is important to reduce the pain and inflammation related to hemochromatosis, however it’s even more intriguing to consider the possibility of reducing the build-up of iron overload. Fortunately, research has established that one of the many medicinal properties of turmeric is to reduce excess iron from the body. Turmeric (aka Curcumin) has a powerful effect in reducing stored iron from the cells. As turmeric/curcumin levels increase, iron levels decrease.

Researchers concluded simply: Curcumin is a biologically active iron chelator. This is exceptional news for people with hemochromatosis and iron overload!

Inflammation can contribute to pain and fatigue... one of the primary symptoms those with Hemochromatosis symptoms suffer from. This alone demonstrates how great the benefits of turmeric can be! But to also reduce the storage of too much iron?!? That’s awesome…..

There is one major challenge to using turmeric medicinally, which is how to get the turmeric into the cells of your body. Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, tends to be poorly absorbed by our digestive system. This is where Turmeric4You can be a major help. With its high-quality organic turmeric, containing 6% curcumin, black pepper and the 5 herbs and spices as well as the coconut oil and magnesium that all work together to enhance the absorption, giving approx. 100% uptake into the blood stream. Also, the Turmeric4You capsules with their enhanced curcumin are one of the few turmeric capsules in Australia to be listed with the Therapeutic Goods Authority, so you can be assured that you are using a top-quality product.

Better still is the noted turmeric benefit of reducing too much iron that has already accumulated in your body. Turmeric stands above all other remedies for its ability to actually reduce excess iron. Talk about one of the best ways to help restore your health!
