LET’S DIVE IN! SO WHAT EXACTLY IS THIS MAGICAL HERB
No doubt you have heard of turmeric, and if you haven’t well let us tell you more about it. Chances are you have heard all the buzz about curcumin. Turmeric has been argued to be one of the most beneficial herbs on the planet! It is one of the most mentioned medicinal herbs that have a strong library of studies backing its powerful benefits. Turmeric has a long history of use and is backed by over 12,000 peer-reviewed research articles. Turmeric has been widely researched for its role in inflammation involving arthritis, heartburn, stomach pain, gastrointestinal inflammation, hemorrhage, diarrhea, stomach bloating, loss of appetite, jaundice, liver function, irritable bowel syndrome, gallbladder dysfunction, cholesterol metabolism, and fatigue.
WHY TURMERIC AND NOT CURCUMIN
Curcumin is a nutritional compound located within the rhizome, or rootstalk, of the turmeric plant. The key components of the entire turmeric plant work together to produce the maximum potential health benefits of the whole plant. It is estimated that roughly 40%-85% of curcumin passes through the GI unchanged. Many supplements on the market today have been highly processed and marketed to you. Speaking of herbs specifically, most herbs before bottling are received as a ground-up powder, making it impossible to visually inspect the product. This may seem insignificant, but how else can you know exactly what you are getting without seeing the whole plant? Natural turmeric powder has low bioavailability- most of the turmeric ingested is not absorbed by the intestines.

Why Wellness Way herbs?
The Wellness Way herbs are only sourced in two ways. They are either grown organically or they are wild crafted. We use liquid herbs for one primary reason, potency! Powdered herbs are not able to achieve anywhere near the same potency as their alcohol extracted liquid counterpart. 100% pure alcohol is used as part of a percolation or maceration process. The most effective extraction technique for each herb is utilized. Because of the extraction process and resulting potency, there is no question why we choose liquid herbs. As a bonus, there are only three ingredients in the bottle: the herb, water, and the pure alcohol in the highest potency ratio.
