"Will Turmeric Help Joints?" - An Exploration by iüLabs

Unveiling iüLabs

Welcome to iüLabs, where science meets nature. Today's question: Will turmeric help joints?
Our journey has been all about unlocking nature's potential through technology. We've focused our expertise on creating wellness products using SoluSmart® technology, such as iüMove, our joint health supplement.

Turmeric: A Gem of Research

Turmeric is one of the best-researched plant compounds ever, not only a shining star in Ayurvedic medicine but also featured in thousands of scientific studies, confirming its various health benefits. Our story with turmeric is a bit more personal. Our co-founder Dr. Wolfgang, a scientist with a background in pharmaceutical research on inflammatory diseases, stumbled upon turmeric time and again. He saw its potential and decided to explore the question "Will turmeric help joints?" further.

Turmeric: A Safe Supplement

Human clinical trials have further underscored turmeric's appeal by demonstrating its safety. Turmeric hasn't been found to be toxic when given at doses of 1–10 g a day. In various studies, participants received doses of approximately 1–1.5 g a day but also up to 8 g a day, without encountering adverse side effects. This finding provides additional confidence in turmeric's use as a beneficial and non-harmful supplement, supporting its widespread application in health and wellness.

Turmeric as a Potent Polyphenol

Polyphenols are like nature's defense mechanism. They protect plants, and when consumed, they offer us health benefits too. Imagine them as soldiers fighting against invaders in our bodies.

Turmeric: A Polyphenol Powerhouse

Turmeric, with its potent polyphenol known as curcumin, has been the subject of extensive scientific studies, all pointing to its remarkable abilities. Curcumin has been shown to exhibit strong antioxidant properties, neutralizing free radicals that can damage cells and lead to inflammation. Moreover, its anti-inflammatory effects work at the molecular level, blocking specific pathways that trigger swelling and pain, making it a valuable ingredient in managing joint health and various inflammatory conditions.

Understanding Inflammation

Picture inflammation as a fire alarm in your body. When everything's fine, it's silent. But when there's an injury, the alarm goes off, calling for help. Chronic inflammation, one of the main reasons for joint pain, is like a fire alarm that won't turn off, causing discomfort, including joint pain.

Turmeric and Joint Health

When it comes to joint health, turmeric has been the subject of numerous studies. Its ability to quench the "fire alarm" has been demonstrated repeatedly, forming the scientific basis of our pursuit.

iüMove: A Special Blend for Joint Health

The iüMove Formula

Our iüMove contains a symphony of ingredients known for promoting joint health: turmeric, boswellia serrata, alpha-lipoic acid (ALA), ginger, and hemp extract. It's like a harmony, each note adding to the wellness melody. These ingredients work in synergy, with each one amplifying the effects of the others, creating a powerful blend where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. This synergistic approach aligns with iüLabs' multi-combinatorial philosophy, targeting oxidative stress, neurobiological processes, cellular energy, and inflammation in a concerted effort for optimal joint health.

SoluSmart® Technology

SoluSmart® was our eureka moment. This technology, based on multilamellar vesicles, ensures that the potent ingredients in iüMove are absorbed efficiently. Think of these multilamellar vesicles as tiny taxis for the plant ingredients. They navigate through the body, particularly the gut wall, delivering these natural compounds precisely where they're needed. Like skilled taxi drivers in a bustling city, they ensure a smooth journey, making the ingredients more bioavailable and effective in promoting joint health. No other joint supplements come with this amazing absorption technology.

The Evidence from Science - iüMove and turmeric will help joints

As mentioned above, turmeric has stood the test of rigorous scientific examination. But we didn't stop there.

How to Incorporate Turmeric into a Daily Routine

Using iüMove

Incorporating iüMove into your daily routine is simple and convenient. We recommend taking the drink in the morning. The best part about it is that you prepare it freshly on the spot. By shaking the drink, the multilamellar vesicles get formed just when you need them. This approach allows us not to include sugar or any other additives like so many other supplements do. It's like adding a pinch of wellness to your day, tailor-made and free from unnecessary extras, all aligned with our philosophy of natural and effective health support.

Dietary Sources

Cooking with turmeric has brought joy and health to our team lunches. Indian curries are the first thing that comes to mind, but don't stop there! Curcuma lattes and yellow overnight oats are excellent sources too, adding both flavor and vibrant color to your meals. It's an experience we encourage you to explore, expanding your culinary horizons while benefiting from turmeric's incredible health properties.
