Full-Spectrum, Whole Food
Human beings have used herbs and botanicals to support health for millennia. The body of “Otzi the Iceman”, a bronze-age human, was discovered perfectly preserved in the alps. On his person were over a dozen different plants and fungi, many of which are known to have beneficial properties. Today we realize the many health benefits of turmeric, elderberry and ashwagandha.
What has drawn us to these remedies, time and time again, across the centuries? Is there still a place for ancient medicinal knowledge in this day and age? Consuming whole herb supplements offers many benefits when compared to their synthetic, isolated counterparts.
We all know fruits, vegetables, herbs and fungi contain the ingredients we need to survive and thrive. Synthetic supplements are re-creations of those found naturally in foods. Although they deliver high concentrations of a single substance, lab-made supplements lack the supporting compounds that accompany what we’re after. This can affect bioavailability and digestive comfort. Additionally, synthetic supplements lack the benefits of antioxidants, phenols, and prebiotic fibers typically found in whole herbs and foods.
“Extracting one active constituent or concentrating a single phytochemical is like trying to write a symphony using only one note”, says Jeremy Stewart, Gaia Herbs Vice President of Scientific Affairs. The individual vitamins and minerals are important, of course, but the ensemble of associated compounds is just as important. Together they create a synergistic effect, a sum greater than its parts.
How can we ensure we are getting everything we need? A whole-herb based supplement, coupled with a balanced diet, is a good bet. It’s especially yummy when you supplement with convenient herbal gummies.
New Turmeric Gummies
Many people are familiar with turmeric for its body-soothing properties. The spice is extremely high in antioxidants and other beneficial compounds, making it one of the most anti-inflammatory foods there is. Many turmeric supplements only contain curcumin, identified as the “key” ingredient in turmeric. Studies have shown that while curcumin does indeed support healthy inflammation responses, it is just one of a family of curcuminoids. That’s why new full-spectrum Turmeric Supreme gummies use the benefits of the entire plant in their formula.
Full-spectrum turmeric gummies also contain piperine, AKA black pepper extract. This is an equally important ingredient as piperine has been shown to boost the absorption of curcuminoids. The practice of combining black pepper with turmeric is an ancient one, originating over 2,000 years ago in Ayurvedic medicine. Lemon peel, ginger and a fruity apple mango blend round out the chews for daily inflammation support satisfaction.
Elderberries have been used to support general health for centuries. The dark purple berries are extremely high in vitamin C, fiber, phenols, and flavonols. As with many richly-colored fruits and veggies, they are also high in anthocyanin, a powerful antioxidant.
