The Many Benefits of Tumeric and Green Tea

Many herbal compounds act to reduce inflammation and enhance our body's immune system. Two of the most well-researched anti-inflammatory, immune-strengthening herbs are turmeric and green tea. These are great components to add to your daily regimen to strengthen your immune system and protect against colds, flus and the development of chronic disease.

Some foundational principles to keep the immune system strong include avoiding sugar and environmental toxins and reducing stress. Additionally, getting regular exercise and having good sleeping habits is extremely important as well. Finally, incorporating immune-boosting herbs such as turmeric and green tea will provide the extra push that the body needs to overcome major weather changes and other stressors.


The orange Asian herb turmeric has been traditionally used for centuries by Ayurveda and Chinese medicine. Curcumin is the most powerful active anti-inflammatory compound within turmeric. Curcumin has been shown to be a powerful suppressor of chronic inflammatory mediated disease processes.  Tumeric offers superior liver cleansing, antioxidant power and immune modulation. 

Many Asian cultures use turmeric in nearly every meal. They rave of its anti-aging and medicinal benefits. Western medicine has just begun to research it its components at a very deep level to better understand turmeric's remarkable health properties. Over 500 studies have appeared in the mainstream literature demonstrating curcumin's cancer-protective effects.

Turmeric is a powerful healing tool. The curcuminoid compounds boost levels of the bodies most potent antioxidants including glutathione, superoxide dismutase and catalase. These molecules are critical for the body to limit oxidative-stress-related damage to the vital organ systems.

The active compounds in Tumeric known as curcuminoids exert extraordinary liver protection and rejuvenation properties. Curcumin is a potent antioxidant showing activity as much as 300 times greater than that of Vitamin E.  Curcumin helps to stimulate the flow of bile and aids in fat digestion. Normal secretions of bile are necessary for proper emulsification of fats and helps the formation of chime.   Curcumin regulates tumor suppressor pathways and triggers mitochondria-mediated death in the cancer tissue. Curcumin is anti-angiogenic, which means that it shuts down the ability of cancer cells to develop the extra blood supply that these cells use to fuel on. This effect makes cancer cells more vulnerable to pharmacological treatments such as chemotherapy and other cancer control drugs.

Perhaps due to curcumins' extraordinary antioxidant potential, it may help the body to cope with inflammation without the toxicity of drugs such as cortisone and phenylbutazone.  Curcumin has shown excellent improvement in morning joint stiffness and overall joint health and function.  Curcumin may be especially effective with inflammatory "flare ups".

Therapeutic Turmeric - Potency BEYOND Store-Bought Turmeric

Cancer Prevention, Anti Inflammatory, Liver, Brain and Cardiovascular Health

Turmeric (Curcuma longa) a perennial herb of the ginger family, it is most popularly known as the major ingredient in curry. Used extensively in both the Chinese and Ayurvedic systems of medicine as an anti-inflammatory agent and in the treatment of cases ranging from bloody urine to colic. It definitely has been shown to live up to its name as a “Holy Powder.” Just add to any dish with pink salt, nutritional flakes and tomato concentrate for an awesome super food meal!

Turmeric has been described as following from studies and research articles: 

  • Antioxidant- especially in lipid peroxidation (protecting fats in the body)
  • Anticarcinogenic- in all steps of carcinogenesis: initiation, promotion, progression and regression. Studies have shown it to induce apoptosis (cell death) in lung and colon tumor cell lines as well as reduce levels of urinary mutagens (abnormal cells).
  • Anti Inflammatory
  • A Cardiovascular Protectant- shown to lower cholesterol levels and inhibit platelet aggregation (blood sticking together).
  • Hepatoprotective (Liver Protectant)- Protects against liver injury. Increases excretion of bile salts, cholesterol and bilirubin (waste products) from the liver, while bile flow.
  • A Gastrointestinal Carminative and Protectant- shown to inhibit gas formation, intestinal spasm while increasing the secretion of digestive enzymes. Also shown to increase the protective mucus content of the stomach while protecting against ulcer formation.
  • Protects Neurotransmitters
  • Antimicrobial- inhibits the growth of most organisms.

Curcuminoid - A Powerful Antioxidant 

The active compounds in turmeric known as curcuminoids are potent phytonutrients that contain powerful antioxidant properties, showing activity as much as 300 times greater than that of vitamin E. Curcumins help to counteract the damaging effects of free radicals in the body, help relieve arthritis pain and stiffness, possess powerful anti-inflammatory properties, exhibit anti-tumor properties, and exert extraordinary liver protection and rejuvenation properties. 

This is NOT your Store-Bought Turmeric

Turmeric is a very delicate root whose nutritional content begins to degrade as soon as it is ground. The problem is that all turmeric found in the shelves of markets and most of them found in health food stores, are not properly stored and are not encapsulated. This poses a problem because its very exposure to air degrades its healing capabilities, leaving the turmeric only good for seasoning food, not for its therapeutic qualities.

Premier Research Labs is one of the only companies to encapsulate the turmeric immediately after it is ground, therefore preserving its therapeutic value. PRL is so determined to provide you with the best, that their employees must work overtime just to make sure that every bit is encapsulated that day. Furthermore, all bottles are made with a special violite that prevents light from coming in contact with the nutrients. This is vital, because just like air, light too can degrade its therapeutic nature. Therefore, PRL is the only way to truly see what Turmeric can do for you health as all other brands simply offer you a pixie dust amount of value.

Premier Turmeric, a Supplement and a Spice to Add to Your Food

Premier Turmeric can be taken daily in capsule form or can be enjoyed as an everyday spice you add to your food. Try adding it your oatmeal, grains and beans, or vegetable dishes. Whichever way turmeric is consumed, it will provide many wonderful benefits, especially for those with health issues related to inflammation, digestive issues, and skin issues.



Organic, Grade 10 Indian Turmeric (rhizome) (Curcuma longa) (500mg)

Premier's Tumeric is the finest Grade 10 Quality Indian Tumeric.  No hybrids are used. Premier's Tumeric is certified organic and protected from sprays and irradiation.  It is grown far from pollution and in mineral rich soil.  Premier Tumeric is provided in vegetable capsules for maximum purity.

For optimal curcumin absorption, it is necessary to combine the turmeric with good fats such as coconut oil or milk or olive oil. You will also want to add a dash of black pepper for the piperine molecule that enhances curcumin uptake.

For individuals with chronic inflammatory diseases such as cancer, it is recommended to supplement with high-dose curcumin.

Green tea:

Green tea is a common Asian drink that has picked up popularity throughout North America. As a trendy drink, many are searching out green tea as a healthy alternative to coffee and other warm drinks. Research has shown that green tea is rich in polyphenol antioxidants that have extraordinary health benefits.

A November 2005 issue of Antiviral Research demonstrated how EGCG inhibits the flu virus from replicating in a cell culture. Scientists found that it blocks the hemagglutinin enzyme in the virus, which inhibits its ability to infect other cells. It also suppresses viral RNA synthesis by altering key properties of the viral cell membrane.

ECGC has been shown to suppress pathogenic viruses such as Epstein-Barr, herpes simplex, HIV-1 and the influenza virus. Green tea contains high levels of L-theanine which has been shown to activate human gamma-delta T lymphocytes to proliferate and make interferon gamma (If-G). If-G is a potent antimicrobial cytokine that is the first line of defense in the blood stream against infection.

Green tea also contains small amounts of alkylamines which are also present in pathogenic organisms. When we drink green tea, the alkylamines present act as relatively weak antigens that don't fully activate the immune system but get it in a ready state. This primes the immune system against bacterial and viral invaders.

Green Tea’s Secret for Cancer and Protection from Radiation
The key phytochemicals in green tea, called polyphenols, have captured the attention of many scientific studies. They give green tea its special power. Dr. Yukihiko Hara, noted researcher and a world authority on green tea, has found that its polyphenols help promote anti-hyperglycemic, anti-hypertensive, anti-hypercholesterolemic, and fat-reducing effects.
Polyphenols have also been shown to protect DNA from damage inflicted from harmful chemicals and even radiation. Green tea’s polyphenols are also extremely effective as antioxidants capable of inhibiting mutation and formation of cancerous cells as well as providing extraordinary protection for the heart, kidneys and the skin. Protection from Radiation Radiation can cause the reduction of leukocytes in the blood and weaken immunity. In animal tests, it's found that polyphenols in green tea can retard the damage of immunity cells caused by radiation, help repair the damaged white blood cells and protect marrow cells from radiation. Polyphenols and Cancer Free radicals are dangerous compounds caused by many things such as exposure to radiation or internal chemical reactions that can attack your body’s cells and harm your DNA. Free radicals can multiply, work together and initiate cascading chain reactions that, over time, can trigger pathological cell mutations which may lead to cancer. The extraordinary bio-availability of the polyphenols in Super Nano-Green Tea allows it to easily outperform other green tea sources delivering antioxidants that neutralize free radicals, halting their potentially lethal cascade and converting them to nontoxic compounds. Polyphenols have also been shown to protect healthy cells from mutation and cancer. One study on the anticarcinogenic properties of green tea showed a 44% inhibition of prostate cancer with no toxic side effects. Another study indicated that 50% of mice treated for tumors with orally administered green tea polyphenols remained tumor-free with a 70% overall increase in life expectancy. The antioxidant “oomph” of green tea has also been recommended as a preventative measure for heart disease, kidney disease, and skin damage from ultraviolet light exposure. Anti-Aging Effect Scientific research shows a direct correlation between the aging process and the accumulation of harmful compounds called Advanced Glycation End products (AGEs) within the body. In one cutting-edge study conducted by the University of Shizuoka, researchers observed that the formation of AGEs were suppressed by the polyphenolic action of green tea, thus acting as an agent to greatly decrease the risk of age-related disease. Fat and Cholesterol Blocker Green tea is also an excellent addition to any sensible weight control program. Fat digestion is reduced through green tea’s inhibition of the enzymes responsible for fat breakdown, so rather than accumulating fat in unwanted places, your body simply passes it through. Green tea’s thermogenic effects also help to maintain normal body weight. A compelling study showed that taking three 90 mg. doses/day of green tea extract burned 266 more calories per day than those who did not use the extract. That is more calories than an average session on a treadmill (and they weren’t even using a nanized version). Additionally, green tea polyphenols help prevent LDL cholesterol from forming atherosclerotic plaques. That’s great news for those concerned about heart and artery disease. Diabetes and Green Tea The news about fat and cholesterol may be of special interest to the millions of diabetics who have to watch their weight to maintain their health. What’s more, green tea is able help quell hyperglycemia by inhibiting α-amylase, the enzyme that converts carbohydrates into glucose. For those who struggle with high blood sugar levels, green tea may provide a key benefit.

Why Use Organic Alcohol?
Top grade, organic alcohol is nature's perfect preservative. Its indigenous vasodilative properties function as a perfect transporter of nanized phytonutrients into the blood to deliver almost immediate uptake. For centuries, Oriental Medicine has known that nutrients preserved in alcohol directly target the liver, getting a faster, deeper response than when no alcohol is used. The organic alcohol used in this formula is superior (pesticide and heavy metal residues not detected via lab testing.)

Want to Avoid Alcohol?
In a typical dose (1/2 tsp.) of "nano" liquid, you receive about 1/90 of an ounce of alcohol. For those who want to avoid alcohol but still get the benefits of this product, simply place a dose of the "nano" preparation (usually 1/2 tsp.) in 1/2 cup of warm, purified water. Wait for 5-10 minutes for the alcohol to gas off.
