Tumeric, the wonder herb…
The benefits of turmeric are numerous. Turmeric is an herb with very large leaves that is cultivated primarily in India. It is frequently used as a spice in Indian cooking, but also offers many health benefits.
The spicy part of the large-leafed turmeric plant is actually in the underground stems, which are called rhizomes. This part of the stem can be cultivated and used in cooking or as an herbal supplement.
The benefits of turmeric have been known since ancient times. It is a common remedy in Ayurvedic (Indian) medicine as well as in traditional Chinese medicine. The herb is an antioxidant as well as an anti-inflammatory agent and appears to be useful in reducing platelet formation and lowering cholesterol levels in the blood. The medicinal properties of turmeric extract are attributed to phytochemicals known as curcuminoids. Additional health benefits of turmeric include antibacterial and antifungal properties.
Turmeric Benefits the Liver.
The liver, in particular, can benefit from turmeric. Extracts from the herb can protect the liver and help treat jaundice, a condition that causes the skin and eyes to turn yellow when the liver is not functioning properly. Turmeric is also thought to increase the flow of bile from the liver. This is an important health benefit because bile is used to excrete fat-soluble toxins from the body. Turmeric may also protect the gallbladder, which stores bile, and works in concert with the liver to cleanse the blood of toxins.
Other Health Benefits
Turmeric is an herb that acts as an antioxidant. As such, it has the ability to boost immunity and protect the body from free radical damage. As a result, using turmeric may lower the risk of developing cancer. In fact, a study out of Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago suggests that diets containing significant amounts of turmeric are associated with lower rates of childhood leukemia. The spice seems to prevent leukemia cells from dividing and it also appears to protect the body from damage caused by exposure to cigarette smoke and the intake of certain kinds of processed foods.
Because of its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, turmeric benefits the skin in several ways and is also an excellent home remedy for coughs and colds. A paste made from turmeric can be used to treat skin inflammation and protect the skin from damage at the cellular level.
Skin care products made with turmeric are also known to enhance beauty in general by giving the skin a healthy glow. For coughs and colds, drinking hot milk with a pinch of turmeric mixed in can help to break up congestion and ease symptoms. This paste can also be applied to the nose or forehead to help alleviate cold symptoms.
While turmeric is generally safe and has no known side-effects it is very spicy and, when consumed in excess, may cause some stomach upset. People with gallstones or bile passage obstruction should consult a physician before using turmeric therapeutically. Also, the spice is not recommended for pregnant women or women who are breast feeding as it may cause uterine contractions

Just to tell you I placed a new order today for the Total Balance. I have now used it for 3 weeks, and I can tell you that it really gives a lot of energy. I use it before i go to the gym, and I really feel the difference, I replaced the Double X from Amway, and TB is definitely better. Besides, the craving for sweet is totally gone, my body feels satisfied. So thank you very much for your product.

My husband will be relieved. He complains every morning about no energy. Guess he’s a poster boy for Xtend-Life. Never believed in vitamins until I started giving him Xtend-Life, now he swears by them. Have a great day.
