Have you jumped on the “turmeric train” yet? From supplementation to the famous golden milk drink, it has created quite the buzz in the natural health and wellness community over the last few years. Turmeric has three main bioactive components that make it a great addition to your health and wellness: desmethoxycurcumin, bisdemethoxycurcumin, and curcumin.
All three of these curcuminoids have many benefits including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antitumor, antibacterial, and antiviral properties.
According to a recent study with dyslipidemia patients- a metabolic disorder where the patient has high levels of lipids that are carried into the blood- researchers have found another amazing benefit to curcumin. The study found that when curcumin is taken with a phytosterol supplementation, the cholesterol-lowering effects of the phytosterols are enhanced. When these two supplements are combined, total cholesterol levels were lowered significantly, as well as LDL cholesterol, and the total cholesterol/ HDL ratio.
In addition to being beneficial to dyslipidemia patients with high cholesterol, it is also helpful for diabetic patients, helping reduce lipoprotein in the blood and increase HDL cholesterol.
If you find yourself struggling with high cholesterol, or you are looking for an all-around great supplement to help support your over-all health, we definitely recommend adding curcumin to your regular health routine!

Dr. Wipperman is friendly, knowledgeable and really cares about your health. The excellent information he has to share about your spinal health is more than you might expect! His staff is warm and friendly, and really helpful. While I started seeing Dr. Wipperman for one specific problem, over the course of my care, I am truly seeing the benefits to my overall health. I highly recommend Ballas Chiropractic!
