What You Should Know
Solaray Turmeric is one of those supplements that dieters should add to their daily regime even if clinical research is not yet conclusive. There are more than 60 clinical trials currently being completed involving the health benefits of turmeric. Turmeric is thought to reduce the risk of cancer, reduce inflammation, counteract stomach discomfort in patients with IBS and promote weight loss. With so many potential health benefits, there is little reason not to add a little turmeric to your diet.
Solaray Turmeric contains 200 mg of turmeric extract combined with other ingredients. Clinical studies may include more or less turmeric.
List of Ingredients
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) (root extract) 200 mg; Bromelain (from pineapple stem) 326 mg; Boswellia (Boswellia serrata) (gum extract) 50mg.
Turmeric is the topic of many health studies, but it is the weight loss studies that most influence dieters. According to one naturalist, turmeric binds to heat receptors in the body. The heat receptors control thermogenesis or body heat. If the receptors are bound, heat production increases and the body burns more calories for fuel. This is the impact of all supplements that increase metabolism, effectively, but turmeric does so without stimulating the central nervous system, so there is great hope clinical research reveal a definitive connection between weight loss and turmeric.
Even if the dieter were to learn turmeric will not increase metabolism, there are other health benefits associated with the spice. As is the case with green tea, we doubt the average dieter could add enough turmeric to food to support health, but that is where Solaray Turmeric comes into the picture. Supplements tend to contain massive amounts of a spice or natural substance so the dieter can take more without having to increase food intake beyond comfortable levels.

Sometimes we stumble upon a supplement that offers all benefits and no negative side effects. Turmeric, so far, is one of those supplements. Dieters wanting to gain the upper hand on weight loss and boost metabolism without feeling the negative side effects of taking more stimulants, may want to give turmeric a try. Even if some of the clinical studies come back negative, others are bound to show some health benefits. The dieter can feel free to continue taking their normal fat burner as there is no known interaction between proven weight loss ingredients like chromium, green tea and caffeine.
