How Curcumin Can Improve Your Gut Health

Did you know that 80% of your immune system health comes from your gut? Not only that, an unhealthy balance in your gut can lead to diseases and other major health risks. That’s why it is so important to take care of the walls of your intestines by eating the right diet and taking supplements.

One such supplement that is highly recommended you add to your diet is curcumin, also referred to as turmeric. 

Is Curcumin and Turmeric the Same Thing? 

You’ve probably heard curcumin and turmeric used interchangeably, but are they the same thing? Turmeric is a plant. Curcumin is the spice that is created from the plant by grinding it up. It’s the curcumin inside of a turmeric plant that gives you the health benefits. 

Eating Turmeric Alone Isn’t Enough

Simply adding turmeric to your food won’t give you the gut support you need. Curcumin only makes up 2-5% percent of the seasoning. If you want to help your gut health, you will need to take a high-quality supplement. 

How Curcumin Can Improve Your Gut Health

Studies have confirmed that curcumin offers therapeutic potential in aiding in your digestion. It has anti-inflammatory properties. Also, it is an anti-oxidant, anti-microbial, and anti-proliferative. These are the ways it helps your digestion: 

Intestines

It aids in your digestion because it relaxes the walls of your stomach. This allows the food to easily go through your intestines. It can also keep you from experiencing so much gas or feeling bloated after you eat. 

Stomach Lining

Curcumin causes your stomach to produce mucus, which protects the lining from bacteria. It can keep you from having inflammation and infection that leads to tears in the lining. The amount of mucus in your stomach is the reason you can house the number of bacteria in your gut to keep it balanced. 

Liver

It causes an increased production of bile which allows your body to get rid of more cholesterol. This is even more effective when you combine it with high fiber foods. 

Colon

If you are already suffering from a leaky gut, curcumin can help it to heal. It promotes a healthy balance between your gut flora and causes an immune response to help your body regenerate. 

Taking this supplement daily is a great way to help heal a leaky gut and keep your digestive tract healthy.

Distress or Chronic Stress

Distress or chronic stress is uncontrollable, prolonged, or overwhelming stress. Once stress becomes distress, the body manages to survive though not always to thrive. For example, when faced with periods of chronic stress, the body’s immune system function is lowered, and the digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems no longer function the way they should. In a state of distress, the cells of the immune system (and other body systems) are unable to respond normally and produce levels of inflammation which increase the risk of further health issues.

Homeostasis

Homeostasis refers to your body’s ability to regulate itself and maintain a comparatively stable internal environment despite external and internal conditions and events.

Your body is designed to be in a state of homeostasis, where all the systems within are functioning optimally.

Stressor

Stressor is anything that is perceived by the body as challenging, threatening or demanding.

Health Story

In the context of My Wellbeing Compass, your “Health Story” represents the combination of your dis-eases, conditions, symptoms and the history that binds them together. It is multi-layered and multi-dimensional. Unearthing and resolving the root causes at the core of your Health Story is the only way to truly rewrite this Story.

Natural Self-repair Mechanisms

The body is made up of intelligent, living cells that are dynamically connected. They communicate and just know what to do and when to do it in any given situation. They grow, replicate, repair, and age. Every 90 days, the body has a new bloodstream; every year, it manufactures billions of new cells; colon cells refresh every 4 days; the skin is entirely regenerated every 2-3 weeks; white blood cells regenerate in about 1 year; the liver renews itself at least once every 2 years; and the skeleton replaces its cells entirely every 10 years.

You are an incredibly complex, interactive, and dynamic living organism that is well-equipped with self-repair mechanisms that can fight infections, eliminate toxins, fix damaged DNA, destroy cancer cells, and even slow down aging.

This natural self-healing ability (also referred to as cellular intelligence or body’s innate intelligence) explains spontaneous remissions from seemingly “incurable” diseases.
