Liquid, Capsule or Tablet?
We’re often asked what the difference is between taking Turmeric Plus Oral Liquid and taking other forms of turmeric. For some people, popping a tablet or capsule is a convenient option. It’s the usual, western way- most of our pharmaceuticals and medicines are in tablet form. Turmeric Plus Oral Liquid requires a bit more attention when it’s included in your health regime. The small effort required will make you more conscious of its positive effects.
Personally, I like to see and taste what I put into my body, food or medicine. I like to feel its goodness as my body absorbs it. So it is with Turmeric Plus Oral Liquid. Its vivid yellow tells me that it’s full of vital curcuminoids. Watering it down as suggested, dilutes the colour so that it doesn’t stain the mouth. Another glass of water to follow will take any of the remaining yellow curcumin with it, absorbed by internal tissues all the way down.
Fresh turmeric has quite a bitter taste. The higher the level of curcumin, the more bitter the turmeric. Our biochemists have taken the edge off the bitterness with a little lemon oil and ginger extract, and you can taste it. The flavour is great. It tastes naturally powerful.
Benefits of a Liquid Herbal Extract
- For maximum therapeutic benefits, it is important to take herbs in the form that best captures and preserves their active ingredients. Liquid herbal extracts deliver more bioavailable constituents than any other form of herbal supplement.
- As a herbal extract, nothing is disguised…you get what you see and taste. Tablets contain fillers, binders and other ingredients necessary to compress the active ingredients into tablet form.
- Liquid herbal extracts bypass the digestive system and enter the bloodstream immediately. Capsules are better than tablets but still require the digestive system to break down the capsule material (cellulose). If your digestive system is sluggish, the therapeutic benefits are diminished.
- Liquid herbal extracts capture and preserve the active ingredients. Most herbs in tablet or capsule form lose their potency over time unless bound with other ingredients.
- In liquid herbal extracts, the active ingredients are immediately assimilated into the body; the bloodstream, glands and organs.
