When your passions in life revolve around being active, looking after yourself becomes vitally important, especially as we get older. This is how dressage and fitness enthusiast Anne Evans came to discover the power of turmeric. Anne, aged 57 from Cirencester, has been riding horses for 20 years as well as having a keen interest in gardening. Despite Anne leading an active lifestyle, she began to find her joints were not quite what they used to be.
Anne, along with her husband, began to search the joint health ranges at various supplement companies. It was this research that led her to turmeric.
“I consider myself to be fit and active, however age does eventually creep up on you and you notice these little niggles occur on a more frequent basis.” said Anne. “Those little niggles can have an impact on the amount of fun you have, I was determined that was not going to happen to me.”
It was just over a year ago that Anne’s search for a solution got underway and that led her to Turmeric+, a supplement developed by Cambridge based brand FutureYou.
Anne commented, “After much research with the help of my husband, a bio chemist who has a very good understanding of how the body functions, I decided that the curry spice turmeric was something I should try.”
“There are numerous published studies that demonstrate its benefits, the next challenge I faced was deciding on the best way to incorporate it into my diet.”
Whilst millions of us love adding turmeric to our meals throughout the week, research shows that you need to consume it daily to really reap the benefits. The other obstacle need to be overcome is ensuring we absorb enough of what we eat into our bodies.
The component of turmeric that is known to be beneficial is curcumin, however this only accounts for 3% of standard turmeric powder.
What convinced Anne to trial Turmeric+, was the fact that it only contains the curcumin from turmeric, and that is supported by more clinical studies than any other turmeric supplement.
Anne noted:, “It was the study at the Olympic Research Centre in Barcelona that really caught my eye. Knowing it was used by international footballers and elite athletes made me think it must be able to do something for me.”
The curcumin in Turmeric+ is combined with soy lecithin, it is this patented combination that allows the curcumin to be absorbed by the body. Studies have shown that the formulation is 30 times more absorbable than standard turmeric. Not only is it highly bioavailable, it has 28 published clinical studies demonstrating its effects.
It is now almost a year since Anne started taking Turmeric+ and it is proving to be a real winner. Anne is horse riding, attending the gym, taking part in Pilates and much more on a weekly basis, on top of that she is keeping up with day to day activities much more than she used to.
Anne said, “I love the product and have told many of my friends about it. When you discover something this good, you need to share the benefits. This fits my mantra of being fit for your life.”
