Turmeric-derived curcuminoids are among the most popular nutraceuticals consumed today. The global curcumin market size surpassed $70 million in 2020 and is projected to climb over $162 million by 2028. Rheumatoid arthritis-marketed dietary supplements contribute greatly to this high growth, which is why NOW is the time to get started on your next private label product. And if you believe in your dietary supplement brand, then you’ll want prospective customers to believe in it too. How to gain that belief? Why, by partnering with Makers Nutrition, of course.
What is turmeric?
Turmeric, or “Indian saffron,” is a bright yellow spice that comes from a tall plant with a yellow-orange stem. This golden spice is not just for curries or tea, though popularly used for both. Historically, traditional Indian medical physicians administered turmeric for healing effects. Today, research continues to suggest that curcumin, the active chemical in turmeric, may have health-benefitting properties for rheumatoid arthritis, or RA.
What is rheumatoid arthritis?
Rheumatoid arthritis is a long-term autoimmune condition in which the body mistakenly attacks healthy joint tissue. As a result, it causes joint inflammation, pain, and stiffness. Let’s see how curcumin can help those who deal with daily, and often painful, RA symptoms.
Scientific Studies and Curcumin
It is believed that curcumin’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties help the body on a journey towards remission. There is an abundance of research focusing on the effects of curcumin, turmeric’s main active compound, rather than turmeric as a whole. Here are some study findings.
A 2017 study that involved 36 people with RA tested a bioavailable formulation of curcumin. After some days, the subjects of the study reported significant improvements in their inflammation and pain compared to those in the placebo group.
A 2018 study assessed the effects of curcumin in a rat model of rheumatoid arthritis. Results suggested that curcumin reduced joint inflammation and redness in these rats by blocking an intracellular signaling process called the mTOR pathway. While more research is underway, there are many consumers looking for turmeric-containing supplements for their RA symptoms.
How turmeric works
The biggest factor for pain associated with RA is inflammation. The curcumin in turmeric blocks specific enzymes and cytokines that lead to inflammation. Curcumin has been used by people with inflammatory diseases, infections, and cardiovascular disease. While these are areas that need more research for concrete evidence, it is widely believed that curcumin can have beneficial effects on each.
Types of Turmeric Supplements
While many people enjoy a hot cup of turmeric tea or add it to their favorite salads, smoothies, and curry, curcumin has poor bioavailability. As a result, people turn to turmeric supplements manufactured by a safe, dependable private label health brand. These supplements, often combined with other absorption-enhancing ingredients, are manufactured in the form of:
- Capsules: easy to swallow, can fit multiple ingredients to help absorb nutrients
- Tablets: easy to swallow, may be crushed
- Powders: can be mixed into a flavorful smoothie while offering the health benefitting effects of turmeric
- Gummies: can be chewed and taste great through innovative flavor systems
Most popularly manufactured into capsules, curcumin/turmeric can provide your customers suffering with RA symptoms the boost on life they have been needing, no matter the format you choose.
The Powerhouse Combination of Turmeric and Black Pepper
Many of the market’s top-selling turmeric or curcumin supplements include black pepper, which contains piperine, a type of antioxidant that helps lower the risk of heart disease, neurological conditions, and atherosclerosis. Piperine also cooperates with curcumin, making it more absorbable for the body to use.
