Flora Force Turmerynne® capsules pack an antioxidant punch from turmeric. So it’s no wonder that this powerhouse supplement has become one of our most popular products. Recently, we adjusted the formula to contain more turmeric. Why? And what can you expect from new, improved Turmerynne®?

First, let’s meet the constituents of Turmerynne®

The principal components of Turmerynne® are turmeric root powder and cayenne fruit powder. Not only are these spices kitchen essentials, they’ve been valued for their medicinal benefits since long before your great-great-great grandparents were born.

And when we say “root” and “fruit”, we mean the whole root and the whole fruit, as provided by nature. Not extracts that are concentrated or standardised to a specific biochemical in the plant. You get the whole package as nature intended, and as used for centuries.

Turmeric (Curcuma longa)
One of the major active constituents in turmeric is curcumin. Scientific studies show that curcumin may have antioxidant effects. In other words, turmeric appears to help fight off the toxic free radicals that cause health problems and ageing. It helps to cleanse your body and maintain its good health. As an anti-inflammatory, turmeric may help relieve pain associated with arthritis, joint pain and headache, and gut problems such as gas and bloating. As Turmerynne® is made from whole root turmeric powder, it delivers the benefits of curcumin.

Cayenne (Capsicum minimum)
Cayenne helps circulation and acts as an antioxidant.

Black pepper (Piper nigrum)
Curcumin is not easily taken up by the body. Black pepper with piperine is added to the formula to help with absorption.

Dosage: New findings at the lab

Why change a winning formula? Enter modern science – and new research from the labs. Recent studies show that you need at least 1.5 grams of turmeric per day to experience its therapeutic effect. So we’ve altered the formula to conform with the new dosages. This is Turmerynne® as you know it, only better:

CONTENTS PER CAPSULE DAILY DOSE:2 x 3 capsules (was 2 x 2)
Curcuma longa 332 mg (was 215 mg) 1992 mg (was 860 mg)
Capsicum minimum 108 mg (was 215 mg) 648 mg (was 860 mg)
Piper nigrum 10 mg (was 20 mg) 60 mg (was 80 mg)

What is the benefit of using an antioxidant?

For those who haven’t read our blog about antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, here’s a re-cap…

Your body produces free radicals as oxygen interacts with certain molecules in your body. Free radicals are damaging atoms that are linked with human disease such as cancer, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and ageing. Luckily, your body also produces the antioxidants it needs to counteract the effects of free radicals. But outside factors such as smoking, stress, pollution, processed foods, unhealthy lifestyle and medications can help free radicals to multiply. And multiply. And (well, you get the picture…)

If, over time, you’re exposed to more free radicals than your body can handle, you’re likely to suffer long-term cellular damage. And that’s when disease develops, it starts at this cellular level.

Antioxidants help your body to neutralise and remove harmful free radicals. The best reason ever to follow a healthy diet and take a high-quality, whole-herb antioxidant supplement.

Why you need to reduce inflammation

Inflammation is your body’s immune response to infection and injury. For example, when you have the flu, your body triggers an acute inflammation to destroy the effects of the invading virus. That kind of inflammation is good; without it, infections can become deadly and wounds infected.

However when inflammation is ongoing (called chronic), such as happens if you have an arthritic condition, auto-immune disease or allergies, it can destroy your body’s natural balance. You can become more susceptible to disease. Poor lifestyle habits, excess weight, stress, smoking and pollution can also lead to chronic inflammation. Reducing inflammation eases these negative effects.

New improved Turmerynne® -‘the spice of life’ – helps maintain balanced health.
