Turmeric, ey? What’s it good for?
As it turns out, quite a lot!
With its usage dating back over 3,500 years to traditional Ayurvedic medicine, we’re finally starting to understand the incredible benefits this super root provides.
It’s no secret – turmeric packs a punch and here we’re going to take you through the 5 biggest turmeric shot benefits you can expect to see from adding this powerful ingredient into your routine. Let’s power on!
Looking for a quick, convenient way to add turmeric, ginger and other naturally powerful ingredients into your diet?
The team at The Turmeric Co. have got your back. Check out an all-natural range of cold-pressed turmeric shots and start experiencing the amazing benefits for yourself!
Great things come in small packages. Here are 5 of the top rewards you can expect to reap from regular turmeric shot consumption:
The impact of oxidative stress on the body can increase the risk of cancer, reduce immune capabilities and even cause loss of eyesight.
Antioxidants protect you from dangerous free radicals and when your body isn’t able to produce enough, a few extra go down a treat!
Turmeric’s primary active ingredient, curcumin, is a seriously strong natural antioxidant that can help counteract the effects of free radicals in the body – keeping you fighting fit.
If you’re on the quest for a healthy mind and body, inflammation isn’t to be overlooked.
When left unchecked, inflammation can cause a whole host of bodily aches and pains, not to mention infections and illnesses.
With everything going on in our busy lives, it’s easy to see why the management of something you can’t see might take a back seat!
But anti-inflammatory ingredients like turmeric could well have a hugely positive impact on your physical and mental wellbeing – it’s certainly worth giving it a go!
As a potent natural anti-inflammatory, turmeric’s active ingredient – curcumin – blocks NF-kB, a gene known to create inflammation that’s frequently associated with many chronic diseases.
The belief that your brain stops growing after childhood is a myth.
Scientists have now proven that, with the right help, you can continue to create new neural pathways late into adulthood. This is called neuroplasticity.
One of the key hormones behind this incredible bodily function is Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) and, you guessed it – turmeric helps your body to create it!
The benefits of increased BDNF go well beyond boosting memory – there’s research to suggest it could even help combat age-related brain diseases!
Curcumin, turmeric’s active ingredient, also boasts antidepressant properties, with research suggesting it can increase the concentration of the ‘happy chemicals’ – serotonin and dopamine.
Depression has also been linked to lower levels of BDNF, meaning regular curcumin consumption could yield double the benefit.
A lot of us wish we could turn back the clock. Although there’s no magic ingredient to strip the years off, research shows that turmeric may be able to reduce the speed at which physical ageing occurs.
Turmeric achieves this both as a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, but also by improving natural skin quality.
With the ability to heal wounds, brighten dark circles and reduce acne scarring all in its arsenal, turmeric could well help you look and feel younger.
You know how they say frozen or boiled food is less nutritionally dense? The same principle applies to turmeric. Some manufacturers will use heat or even chemical processes to extract juice from the turmeric root, both of which can significantly reduce the benefits you’ll get from consumption. Condense the juice into a powder, and the majority of what precious active ingredients were there before are likely gone for good. Extraction methods make all the difference. In fact, if you’ve tried turmeric in the past and were let down by the results, it could well be down to how it was produced.
In short – if it’s raw turmeric, no. If you’ve heard of people experiencing side effects from turmeric supplementation, they will more than likely have been taking it as a highly-concentrated powdered form.
Since the bioavailability of turmeric’s active compounds decreases from raw root to powdered form, manufacturers often increase quantities to far beyond what the average consumer needs. This, very rarely, can lead to some irritation.
All of our products use 100% fresh, raw turmeric root that’s been spared from questionable extraction methods. With us, you get the root, the whole root and nothing but the root.

I suffer from psoriatic arthritis and wanted to try something natural before starting medication for this condition. I was a little sceptical, but after taking these every morning for a month, I can definitely see a difference. I have less pain and inflammation in my joints and more energy.

I’ve been using these turmeric shots for a few months now and my rheumatoid arthritis flares have lowered significantly, and the fact they taste so good is a massive bonus!! They work really quick too as I started of with the 7day sample box and by the end of that wk i felt like a different person!!

Obviously, it's hard to be certain, but using the mixed box has certainly correlated with my knees feeling an awful lot better. When lockdown began, I moved from the elliptical machine in my (closed) gym to running. Going from 0 to 12km didn't agree with my old knees, but I'm now managing a pain-free 10km pretty easily. I quite like the taste too Read more about Obviously, it's hard to be certain,- it's like a little wake-up shot first thing in the morning : ) Plus - my cat loves the box!

Truly amazed at the power of these shots, I’m almost scratching my head and thinking, what could the ‘magic’ secret ingredient could be? There isn’t one of course and it’s just the power of the combined ingredients - a “natural high” - genuinely remarkable. As a result I’ve found myself back in the gym after a seven year absence due to a very nastRead more about Truly amazed at the power of thesey emergency appendectomy (Xmas 2012) and ran 5km on the treadmill for the first time in 7 years (41.18 mins). Nagging aches and pains have literally disappeared now. Amazing and will be ordering more every month. Thanks guys and I’m so glad I read the story in the i newspaper.
