Again, the actives in turmeric support the antioxidative enzymes, reducing oxidative stress and aiding collagen synthesis. And, with an integral relationship between oxidative stress and inflammation, the inflammatory markers can also be reduced.
Solely based on the two parameters of exercise and joint impact, there is evidence that turmeric, through its major component curcumin, can help the body’s natural processes to aid recovery. However, this is only one component of many.
Turmeric contains many bioactives, consisting of curcumoids, curcuminoids & essential oils, all of which can help support antioxidative processes, but have roles in a range of biological functions including insulin sensitivity, supporting the microbiome and acting as a skin conditioner.
TurmerAid has taken this one step further; by using a range of supporting ingredients, both the efficacy and extension of the bioavailability of active components have been enhanced. Polar lipids, saponins and various flavonoids enhance absorption, whilst naturally occurring compounds such as piperine and quercetin increase the activity of bioactives before they are removed from the body. This means that the turmeric in TurmerAid is really put to work, and makes an ideal supplement for equine athletes, like polo ponies.
