What is Theracumin?

Before diving into what Theracumin is, let’s first discuss turmeric in general. Turmeric is an herbal plant that’s native to South East Asia and India. Popularly known for its bright yellow colour, turmeric has long been used in culinary practices, most notably curry dishes. Turmeric has also been used in Ayurvedic medicine for its potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. More specifically, the curcumoids that the turmeric root possesses gives this herb its medicinal capabilities. Curcumin is one of the three curcuminoids found in turmeric and makes up the bulk of its therapeutic properties. Curcumin is one of the most extensively researched natural health products, and scientifically proven to help fight pain and inflammation. While curcumin is available in turmeric spice, it’s not in high quantities, so most people turn to supplementation when looking to reap its therapeutic benefits. In supplement form, curcumin is available in a range of formats from powders to capsules, but it’s not very bioavailable on its own; therefore, it’s often mixed with piperine (black pepper) to enhance its bioavailability. Another reputable curcumin supplement on the market that offers enhanced absorption capabilities is Theracumin. This form has been scientifically studied 19 times, all concluding that Theracumin has superior absorption, benefits and safety. What separates Theracumin from the rest is its manufacturing process. Theracumin is made by grinding down the curcumin to offer smaller particles, making it easier for your body to absorb. It’s then mixed with vegetable gum (gum ghatti) and other beneficial ingredients. This whole process yields an extremely bioavailable, stable supplement in colloidal suspension. What is Theracumin Good For? Like curcumin, Theracumin can help support your health in many ways. Its obvious and most studied benefit is it’s ability to decrease inflammation and naturally reduce pain. Aside from that it can also boost skin health with its abundance of antioxidant properties, support healthy cell growth and support healthy mood balance.

Xylitol – The No-Impact Alternative Sweetner

This no-impact sweetener is low in calories and won’t impact your sugar. Xylitol can be purchased on its own and can be found in some sugar-free or low-sugar products like chewing gum. What is Xylitol? Xylitol, pronounced Zai-LUH-tall, is a type of compound called a sugar alcohol or polyol, and belongs in the same class as erythritol, sorbitol, and maltitol sweeteners. Most sugar alcohols act as no-impact sweeteners, meaning they do not impact your blood sugar. Xylitol is similar in sweetness to regular sugar but contains 40% fewer calories. Xylitol is derived from birch trees and hardwood, although it can be found in small amounts in some fruits and vegetables. Xylitol can be purchased on its own and can be found in some sugar-free or low-sugar products like chewing gums, candies and mints, plus some natural toothpaste and dental care products. Xylitol is sometimes confused with sorbitol, another sugar alcohol with a similar molecular structure. Xylitol and Blood Sugar The glycemic index (GI) assigns a value to foods and beverages based on their impact on blood glucose levels. Generally, goods low on the glycemic index will release glucose more slowly and steadily while foods higher on the glycemic index will release glucose quickly. The glycemic index of xylitol is 7, compared to regular sugar, which is 60-70. Sugar alcohols like xylitol do not raise blood sugar levels and do not count as net carbs. For this reason, xylitol and other sugar alcohols are popular sweeteners in diabetic and low-carb products. Xylitol is also generally believed to not break a fast when intermittent fasting.
