What Is The Asia Wonder Spice?

 

The Asia Wonder Spice TurmericIt seems that every year there is a new super food craze that guarantees miraculous health benefits. From kale and quinoa to keffir and coconut oil (and don't forget your Tahitian Noni juice!) It just seems like one weird, expensive food after the other! Some definitely are fads, but others really do have some well researched health benefits.

You might have heard that there is a lot of fuss right now about a so-called 'Asian wonder spice'. Maybe a whisper of some secret, mysterious spice that has amazing health benefits and is curing all sorts of diseases? That those in the know (or are up to date on their Instagram feed...) are buying supplements, making smoothies and healthy teas so they can reap the amazing health benefits of this magical, mystical spice? (It's not magical or mysterious at all, but it is very good for you.)

So, do you want to know what all the fuss is about without all the hype? Read on.... you will be astounded at the science that is actually proving these radical health claims. Plus we tell you exactly where you can buy the best quality at a great value.

In fact this humble spice has been used all around the world for years as a way to improve health and well being without all the nasty side effects of medications. The 'Asia Wonder Spice' has even being claimed by some to be a $1 magical cure all!

Now that's a pretty big claim, but maybe they are not far of the mark, and the latest medical research is even backing up some of these extraordinary claims! (see our extensive list of  just some of the diseases that are being helped below). Along with the essential nutrient Omega 3 oil, the 'Asia Wonder Spice' is by far one of the best natural supplements available on the natural health market for you to buy.

Whilst this 'secret' Asia wonder spice is actually quite a well known household spice, there are some marketing 'gurus' who are selling it as a mysterious $1 magic pill. But in actual fact, it has been around for thousands of years, and is used every day for cooking in many parts of the world. Whilst it is recommended to take it as a supplement to amplify it's health effects, you can buy it for much cheaper than $1 per pill. We will show you exactly where you can buy this 'wonder spice' cheaply, and still get the highest quality. But first, a bit about this mysterious spice, and it's amazing health benefits!

 

Where Does The Asian Wonder Spice Come From?

In areas where the local people eat this spice every day, many of our modern chronic diseases such as Alzheimer's, heart disease and cancer are virtually non-existent. People live to a ripe old age and they live well, not merely surviving, laid up in hospital beds or nursing homes. So what is the Asia wonder spice, and what are the known health benefits of it?

Native tumeric-minThe mysterious Asian wonder spice is actually Turmeric. Widely used in Asian cooking, particularly Indian and Sri Lankan, Turmeric is often eaten in every meal of the day.

Turmeric is a yellow powder that is made from the roots of the Curcuma longa plant and has a tough brown skin and a deep orange flesh.

It has a peppery, warm and bitter flavour and a mild fragrance slightly reminiscent of orange and ginger, and while it is best known as one of the ingredients used to make curry, it also gives ballpark mustard its bright yellow colour.

Used for more than 4000 years to treat a variety of ailments, Turmeric was traditionally called "Indian saffron" because of its deep yellow-orange colour, and has been used throughout history as a condiment, healing remedy and textile dye. The active ingredient in Turmeric is curcumin, and it has long been used as a powerful anti-inflammatory in both the Chinese and Indian systems of medicine. Unfortunately the curcumin found in the spice is not very well absorbed into the body. Studies show that formulated capsules have much more bio-available curcumin.

 

Western Medicine Versus Eastern Tradition.

In the West, traditional eastern medicines are not usually recognised until there is scientific evidence to back it up. Well, in the case of turmeric, there is!

In fact there is so much evidence that it is being called everything for 'the $1 cure all pill' to a 'wonder drug'. And it's not even a drug (and you can buy it cheaper than $1, much cheaper)! Here are just some of the research results.

(1) Kills 16-times more cancer cells than the leading chemo drug Eloxatin — without harming healthy cells (International Journal of Oncology)

(2) Performs better in memory tests than the drug Aricept (the most widely prescribed Alzheimer's drug) — Salk Institute for Biological Studies

(3) Lowers cholesterol and triglyceride levels better than the statin drug Lipitor (Journal of Drug Research and Development)

(4) Beats Celebrex for relieving knee arthritis pain (Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine)

(5) Relieves rheumatoid arthritis pain better than Ibuprofen (Journal of Phytotherapy Research)

(6) “Therapeutic effects are comparable to pharmaceutical NSAIDs... but with a major difference in that this compound is nontoxic and free of side effects.” - Vanderbilt and University of Pittsburgh researchers (Journal of Surgical Neurology International)

(7) “More effective in stopping the protein fragments from forming than many other drugs being tested to treat Alzheimer's” - UCLA Alzheimer's Department and Veterans Affairs researchers (Journal of Biological Chemistry)

(8) “It's 400-times more potent than the diabetes drug Metformin” — reports Auburn University researchers (Journal of Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications)

(9) More effectively treats Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) than Prozac — without Prozac's devastating side effects, according to a randomized, controlled study.

(10) Treats chronic uveitis — a leading cause of blindness — better than corticosteroids... the only available prescription treatment (Journal of Phytotherapy Research)

(11) “Could enhance erectile function with more efficacy and more prolonged duration of action than Viagra” (International Journal of Impotence Research)

(12) Destroys more colon cancer stem cells than FOLFOX (one of the most widely prescribed chemotherapy protocols) - Baylor University researchers

This is quite an impressive list of health benefits, and you can see that this is some serious research from top Universities and published in highly respected peer-reviewed medical journals.

So how come you have never heard about it before?

Because the pharmaceutical industry doesn't want you to know. The pharmaceutical industry basically owns health care in the western world, and because turmeric is totally natural, they can't patent it, and therefore cannot profit from turmeric. The pharmaceutical industry is worth a staggering $1.2 trillion a year. You better believe they don't want you to know about it.

Can you imagine the massive dent in the pharmaceutical industries profit if everyone knew that they could reverse serious disease totally naturally, without any side-effects, and for much less than $1 a day! Read more about the "Health Care System' here.

When you think about the money at stake, it really is not surprising that the pharmaceutical industry is not telling you about studies that are showing that turmeric:

  Reverses memory loss from late-stage Alzheimer's in just three monthsJournal of Alzheimer's Research and Therapy  
  Kills cancer stem cells (“the root cause of cancer”) — Journal of Anticancer Research  
  Shrinks tumors with 81% success rate — Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry

  Eliminates symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) with 60% success — Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine
  Reverses Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) in 6 weeks Journal of Clinical Psychopharmacology

 

 

In total it's proven to treat 619 diseases. Way more than we can list here.

Look at a few of these facts.

114 studies confirm it can stop and even reverse Alzheimer's!

And 900 studies prove it can heal over 100 types of cancer — lung, breast, colon, prostate, you name it.

Over 24 studies show its ability to treat pancreatic cancer alone — one of the deadliest cancers.

And that is all without harming healthy cells — or any nasty side effects like pain, nausea, or hair loss!

Turmeric Is A Powerful, Natural, and Safe Anti-Inflammatory and Anti-Oxidant.

Time magazine calls inflammation "The Silent Killer." That's because chronic inflammation is fast becoming recognised as a major underlying cause of most disease. Chronic inflammation has been linked to all the 'big' diseases such as heart disease, arthritis, cancer, among others. But why is it such a problem?

Acute inflammation is a normal process that repairs and protects the body following physical injury or infection. It is an important part of the healing process after injury.

Chronic inflammation however, occurs when whatever initially caused the acute inflammatory process persists. Chronic inflammation can then last for days, months, and even years. Unfortunately, this can result in tissue damage.

It is this tissue damage that is thought to be the precursor to most chronic disease, so any substance that can reduce inflammation has got the potential to be beneficial for your health. Again, the pharmaceutical industry is well aware of this, and have invested vast resources into anti-inflammatory medications. The problem with all of these drugs are the side effects.

This is the huge advantage of turmeric. It has been shown to be as effective as the best anti-inflammatory meds, but with absolutely no side effects (and it is much cheaper!)

Turmeric works because it can deactivate a molecule called Nuclear Factor-kappa B (NF-kB), which is basically the inflammation command center. By deactivating NF-kB, it effectively stops the inflammatory process. Drugs have so far not been able to this, instead they have their affect further down the chain of the inflammatory process, and causing other problems on the way.

Another natural anti-inflammatory that is also an essential nutrient for humans is Omega-3 fish oil. Read about it's amazing health benefits here.

 

 So Is It A Miracle Cure?

Whilst Turmeric, the Asia Wonder Spice, is starting to look like a miracle cure, I don't like to put that label on anything. But from all the evidence it is probably the closest we have to one right now. It's incredible anti-inflammatory properties are showing amazing results with a whole range of illness, from back pain, arthritis, cancer, Alzheimer's, heart disease, dementia etc. This 'Wonder Spice' is readily available to everyone at an affordable price right here.

Although this sounds like it might be the answer to your health problems, you do need to be aware that even though turmeric, the Asia Wonder Spice, is very effective at decreasing inflammation naturally with out side-effects, the presence of inflammation is the result of something else. This is the real root cause of disease! Inflammation is just your body's response to some underlying irritant. Usually that something is an unhealthy lifestyle choice you are making. It could be diet related, joint dysfunction, mental stress, whatever. This is where you need to focus some attention so you can make the right choices on your journey to optimal health.

Read more about healthy choices and what causes back pain for a better understanding.

If you are looking for a more natural way to improve your health and wellbeing, without the nasty side effects of medications, we highly recommend incorporating a turmeric supplement into your daily health plan.

The best selling Doctor Danielle's Turmeric/Curcumin with Bioperine is the highest quality turmeric supplement available on the market right now. It also contains Bioprene which has been shown to increase the levels of bio-available curcumin by up to 2000%! It is what HealthySpines.org recommends.

  1. Tumeric, the Nature’s wonder,. I’ve heard about the good of Tumeric
    But I’m awed by the long list of benefits. Thank you for sharing the scientific evidence.
    And I subscribe to your perspectives on the role pharmaceutical industry play in the healthcare and wellness market. In the WWW era and the higher and easier accessibility to tonnes of information, I hope for more informed choices can be made by consumers before they take supplements. Thank you again for sharing the wonders of Tumeric.

    • HI Cheng,

      It is really amazing when you read the actual scientific evidence behind turmeric. I have been recommending it, and taking it myself for several years now, so I was really excited to be able to compile all this evidence to share with everyone.

      Along with a high quality Omega oil, it is the only other supplement that I take regularly. The rest I get from a nutrient dense diet.

      Have an amazing diet.

  2. G’day Brad

    What a great article. Alzheimer’s, cancer, type 2 diabetes, etc, seem to be such common problems in today’s world. I had absolutely no idea about the wide ranging benefits that humble Turmeric offer.

    • HI Andrew,

      It is quite amazing isn’t it? It is a real shame that this is not common knowledge, it may not help everyone, but it can probably help a lot of people.

      Have an amazing day!

      Dr Brad

    • HI Gabrielle,

      HealthySpines.org is all about natural ways to be as healthy as possible, particularly related to spinal health. Most illness is the end result of an unhealthy lifestyle, and by following a healthy lifestyle we can prevent illness is the first place!

      Thanks for the kind words,

      Dr Brad

  3. Asian wonder spice?

    Never heard of it. Now I will definitely try it because I am a really big fan of natural and holistic methods to stay healthy and in shape.

    Thank you for this informative article.

    • Hi Noelle,

      This particular product is not available in Australia as far as we are aware.

      For Australia we recommend finding a health care practitioner who stocks Metagenics. Usually chiropractors or naturopaths and some GP’s. Inflavanoid is the product you want.

      Hope this helps.

      Dr Brad

  4. I tried to convince my sister to give this to my niece – who recently died of brain tumours, age 9…. but instead she went for what the ‘experts’ suggested…. CHEMO and brain surgery…. didn’t work… I have read that tumeric is MUCH more effective when combined with ‘Piperin’… what are your thoughts on this??

    • Hi Steve,

      So sorry to hear about your niece, it must have been a very emotional time.

      You are right about ‘Piperine’. It is an active ingredient from black pepper and is usually marketed as the extract bioprene. Some studies have found that it increases the bio-availability of curcumin by 2000{95f364b8aea3ba4afb976a81c1dcc2e8147daac1866ef443968911255633a999}!

      All good quality turmeric supplements will include it in their formula. The Pureclinica Turmeric we recommend has it, and is also much more potent than other turmeric supplements (contains more curcumin).

      Thanks!

  5. I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis (and scoliosis and scheuermanns disease) late last year and was told that not only was it incurable but I had it bad enough that I would never be able to work again! At 57 I don’t see this as promising.

    I do get severe pain even when on high doses of Tramadol and at times it is quite debilitating, enough of that though.

    I made the mistake of telling my GP that I was going to find a “cure” for arthritis, and not the medical definition of cure either (if symptoms do not re-occur within 5 years you are regarded as cured). He told me I was being “silly” and that the medical approach was the only approach, yet he could not (and neither could the specialist) tell me how arthritis “infected” people – they have no idea.

    I have done some of research and found that a low carb / high protein diet was better than a good diet recommended to me by a dietitician (three meat and vegetables), super doses of vitamins and a reasonable level of exercise is potentially something which will allow me to reverse the effects of arthritis.

    My only concern is that the damage that is already done may not be reversible.

    Your comments here indicate that my researched approach may be “on the mark” and that medical science is not going to provide me with an answer. I understand the pharmaceutical industry’s vested interests. Having a “Dr” make these comments and provide reference material is important.

    How do I purchase your product here in Australia?

    • Hi Steve,

      Your poor spine!

      Gentle exercise and diet is the cornerstone to good health, as well as easing the severity of OA. I don’t believe that a ‘high protein’ diet is the healthiest way to eat. It is great from a sales point of view, telling people what they want to hear, right.

      HIGH VEGETABLE DIET with moderate amounts of protein, some complex carbs and no processed foods has been shown again and again to be the healthiest diet for human beings (that’s all of us, by the way!).

      This particular Turmeric supplement is not available in Australia as far as we are aware.

      For Australia we recommend finding a health care practitioner who stocks Metagenics. Usually chiropractors or naturopaths and some GP’s. Inflavanoid is the product you want.

      Hope this helps.

    • Hi Sheila,

      You take 1 tablet twice a day.

      Often people will only take one per day as a ‘maintenance’ dose. But if you are not well, take the recommended dosage.

      Kind regards,

      Dr Brad

  6. What dosage of tumeric and what brand is the best for penetrating the spinal cord for inflammation? I have Adhesive Arachnoiditis.

    • Hi Julie,

      Sorry to hear about your Adhesive Arachnoiditis, I hope you don’t suffer too much.

      Healthyspines.org recommends Pureclinica Turmeric supplements because it has double the amount of bio-available curcumin (not to be confused with the amount of turmeric, curcumin is the active constituent), and it also contains Bioprene to help with absorbtion. The recommended dosage is 1 tablet, twice a day with food.

      Dr Danielle also has a good quality Turmeric supplement available here: http://amzn.to/2cM1onW

      There are reports of AA sufferers having good results for pain relief with medicinal marijuana, if you are inclined to try that.
      Also look at some physical therapy such as Cranio-Sacral Therapy, or a Chiropractor who specialises in Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT). They are both gentle techniques that may help to reduce dural tension.

      All the best,

      Dr Brad

  7. What about taking real turmeric from the root? I buy organic turmeric and grate it into my tea. How much would a recommended daily dose be?

    • HI Kathy,

      You can absolutely take fresh tumeric, and making a tea from it is a great way. However, when researching this article we found that tumeric, when taken in it’s natural form, is broken down very quickly by the body.

      It is recommended that if you are trying to get the health benefits of tumeric by taking it in it’s natural form, that you ingest some black pepper at the same time. This will slow the body’s ability to metablise the tumeric, allowing it to have the time to benefit your health and wellbeing.

      Kind regards,

      Dr Brad

  8. I was privileged to read your incisive article on tumeric and curcumin. I am interested in trying it out. But l live in Nigeria. So how can l go about it? Can l purchase it from you online?

    • Hi Emmanuel,

      Sorry, we do not directly supply the products ourselves.
      By clicking on the links above, you will be able to see if the suppliers will deliver to Nigeria for you. I believe that Amazon does indeed deliver to several African countries.

      Best of luck!
      Dr Brad

  9. I have always loved nature and all the goodies tumeric, coconut oil, moringa and so many more are nature’s wonder. Some 3 years ago I had gastric ulcer lived-in constant pain for 2 whole years I was told there was no cure but I searched for natural remedies and discovered coconut oil. Believe me you am totally free from gastric ulcer no managing it whatsoever. Nature cures, nature rocks.

    • Hello Hilary!

      I love the spice turmeric and try to incorporate it into several meals every week including curries, smoothies, teas, and even salad dressings. I like the earthy flavour, the bright yellow colour, and of course the health benefits!

      The only problem with the powdered spice is that our bodies break down the active ingredient, curcumin, very rapidly. Black pepper (bioperine) slows the breakdown considerably and means that the curcumin is bioavailable for longer, so it’s highly beneficial if you add pepper to the dish as well.
      But this might not be so palatable in say, a smoothie, even though I always prefer to get my nutrition as naturally as possible by eating whole foods! And of course some people do not like the taste of turmeric.

      Dr Danielle’s Turmeric supplement that we recommend contains bioperine, making it an easy and convenient way for people to maintain a regular dose of this wonderful spice.

      Hope this answers your question.

      Kind Regards,
      Dr Brad

  10. How can it be said that taking this turmeric supplement with Bioprene to increase the levels of bio-available curcumin, can REVERSE TYPE 1 Diabetes?!?!?! I have a strong disbelief in your statements and have searched for any type of documentation stating one instance of this happening. I simply do not believe you and it hurts me to think you have no credibility. Type 1 diabetes is an auto immune disorder that causes my body to destroy my insulin producing cells. How could curcumin possibly change that?

  11. Hi Dr Brad,
    I’m in Australia and have been making turmeric and ginger tea by grating the raw root and boiling, then adding honey, lemon and black pepper. It’s very tasty, almost overpowering, but is a lot of trouble to make. Taking the pill would be much easier. However, I have a few questions about the differences between the raw food and the extract.

    The main ingredient which I believe is extracted from the Turmeric, is Curcumin. Do you know what quantity or weight of the raw root is used to provide the amount of Curcumin available in each capsule?

    Also, are there other ingredients in the raw root, apart from Curcumin, which might also have health benefits which one wouldn’t get from the capsule?

    Is it possible that in order to get the same quantity of Curcumin that one capsule contains, it might be necessary to consume too much of the raw root in relation to other ingredients which might cause discomfort, such as Diarrhea or stomach ache?

    • Hello Vincent.

      Apologies for the late reply. I saw in a recent article that you would need to eat quite a substantial amount of the raw turmeric root to achieve the health benefits that research is showing is possible. To acieve the required doses, it is suggested that you take supplements.

      You have done the right thing by including black pepper in your own concoction as it helps with the absorption of turmeric. But to get the most from it, you are better off with a supplement. Metagenics make excellent product, and are available at many natural health professionals such as chiropractic offices.

      All the best,

      Dr Brad
