5 Top Anti-Inflammatory Botanicals to Get in Your Diet

  1. Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) has been cited as a potentially effective natural supplement for reducing inflammation. It’s a powerful antioxidant and studies have shown that it may have a range of health promoting capabilities, from maintaining heart health to improving liver detoxification. ALA is a naturally occurring thiol antioxidant, otherwise known as a sulphur containing chemical produced in plants and animals.

The good news is that there is a vast range of foods that contain ALA, as well as supplement drinks known as nutraceuticals. While you’ve almost definitely already heard of broccoli, kidneys, sprouts, eggs, and cauliflower, you might now be wondering:

What does nutraceutical mean, and can nutraceuticals be as effective as pharmaceuticals?

Nutraceutical is a combination of the words “nutrition” and “pharmaceuticals.” Put simply, nutraceuticals include ingredients that may have additional health benefits that originated from a natural food source.

So, if you’re considering nutraceuticals, iüLabs might be the perfect choice. Committed to helping people improve their quality of life through the combination of science, technology, and nutraceuticals, iüLabs offers an innovative solution for all.

  1. Turmeric

You may be familiar with turmeric as a popular spice in Indian cuisine, but what you don’t know is that it’s packed full of over 300 compounds – the main one being a powerful antioxidant called curcumin, which may have many anti-inflammatory properties.

  1. How to take turmeric

Turmeric only contains around 3% curcumin by weight, and your body doesn’t absorb it well. One of the best ways to ensure you’re getting the right turmeric dosage is to take it in combination with SoluSmart® technology.

So, does curcumin reduce inflammation? Various studies have indicated that curcumin may inhibit the activation of pro-inflammatory signalling pathways that lead to chronic inflammation.

  1. Boswellia Serrata

Most commonly known as Indian Frankincense, boswellia serrata extract itself has been an important part of natural medicine for many centuries. The active ingredient in boswellia serrata is boswellic acid, and it has shown significant pharmacological activity in the treatment of various inflammatory diseases.

Effectively, a boswellia serrata supplement may be the best natural anti-inflammatory to support you with arthritis and inflammatory bowel diseases.

  1. Hemp Extract

Hemp has gained quite the reputation across the globe for helping to soothe anxiety. Due to its high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids, specifically omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, hemp extract has been associated with beneficial effects.
