Ukon™ (wild turmeric) has been recognized for centuries as a natural healer1. It has been known since the era of the Ryukyu Dynasty as a strong antioxidant, and India's ancient medicine (Ayurveda) has used turmeric as an analgesic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, and antioxidant for over 6,000 years.
Western modern medicine is finally catching up to what has been well-known throughout the rest of the world. As our technology advances, we gain scientific proof of the very thing our ancient ancestors trusted all along: turmeric is the key to complete and proactive health.
Dozens of recent scientific studies have reported wild turmeric's protective effect against ailments and diseases that plague our communities today. Preliminary findings from the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine suggest that turmeric - or, more specifically, the primary polyphenol of turmeric (called curcumin) - may have anticancer properties, and further research is being done to investigate the "potential role of turmeric in preventing acute respiratory distress syndrome, liver cancer, and post-menopausal osteoporosis."2
Even the American Cancer Society (ACS) notes that "several types of cancer cells are inhibited by curcumin in the laboratory, and curcumin slows the spread of some cancers in some animal studies." Curcumin was successful in killing cancer cells in controlled laboratory experiments! The ACS also reports that curcumin is being studied to see if it can help arthritis, Alzheimer's disease, stomach ulcers, lower "bad cholesterol," and improve the outcome in kidney transplants.3 Other published, peer-reviewed scientific studies have shown wild turmeric's effect against blood clots, rheumatoid arthritis, gastrointestinal and respiratory disorders, liver damage, diabetes and high blood sugar, cystic fibrosis, and more.
If you have access to the internet, you can easily investigate wild turmeric on your own. For reliable, scholarly information, go to scholar.google.com and search for "turmeric." You'll quickly find that wild turmeric is the one healing component your diet has been missing all along!
