In Ayurvedic medicine, which is native to India and surrounding countries, Turmeric has been used for over 3000 years. Turmeric has the active component called Curcumin and this is what the Ayurveda (traditional medicine doctors) believe helps support health in a number of ways.
Also it is good to know that Health Leads encapsulated products only contain the pure herbs, no bulking agents, anti-caking agents, Silicon Dioxide, Magnesium Stearate or Stearic Acid.
Why do Health Leads not use these other materials?
These extra materials are not added to provide nutritional value, they simply make it easier for the main powdered product to flow through the machines used to fill capsules and make tablets. They prevent the active ingredients from sticking, which makes the machinery easier to clean, and reduces the down time periods required for cleaning. Bulking agents make the capsule look as though it contains more product.
At Health Leads we believe these materials should not be added and there are many reports showing that these are harmful.
