Pukka Wholistic Turmeric capsules retain curcuminoids, turmeric essential oils and a full range of turmeric actives. This means we harness the effects of all 200 of turmeric’s bioactive compounds, not just those of the curcuminoids. Our unique wholistic extraction process enhances absorption and substantially increases potency.
What is turmeric good for?
The health benefits of turmeric are vast and include:
Turmeric contains some very potent polyphenols, also known as antioxidants, that help to protect us from the effects of day-to-day life. Our Turmeric Active tea contains turmeric and green tea to keep you feeling energised and refreshed throughout the day.
Turmeric also supports functions associated with blood flow through the liver, improving the efficacy of liver detoxification pathways but also stimulating cellular repair mechanisms in damaged liver cells. This improvement in blood flow and quality impacts significantly upon the quality of the skin, and turmeric can therefore be an excellent remedy for any afflictions of the skin.
What research is there on the benefits of turmeric?
Pukka is supporting a human clinical trial looking at the effects of our Wholistic Turmeric supplement on muscle recovery after exercise, with the University of Exeter. The study found promising evidence for its ability to relieve pain and improve physical function.
How we grow, source and harvest turmeric
Pukka has worked with Indian farmers for 15 years to increase the amount of land using ‘agroforestry’ to grow our organic turmeric. This is where plants and trees co-exist, protecting and nourishing each other, with coconut trees at the top, down to cacao trees, then to ginger and turmeric in the ground. This naturally replenishes the soil and is true biodiversity at work. So the turmeric in your herbal tea or supplement is the product of a community – not just of organic farmers but of different species of plants – all working in harmony.
