Zuma Nutrition's Biodynamic Inflammation Tonic

Did you know that scientists now believe that chronic, low-level inflammation plays a major role in almost every chronic disease? This includes heart disease, cancer, metabolic syndrome, Alzheimer's and various degenerative conditions. Chronic inflammation can be caused by a number of factors—exposure to toxins, pollutants, and chemicals in the air or in food, untreated illness or infection, consuming high amounts of sugar and high-fructose corn syrup, consuming a lot of refined carbs, such as white bread, eating processed and packaged foods that contain trans fats, excessive intake of alcohol and processed meat, leading a sedentary or non-active lifestyle, and many others. There are also some cases of chronic inflammation that don’t have a clear underlying cause. When prolonged, chronic inflammation can have a negative impact on your tissues and organs.

Our Biodynamic Inflammation Tonic is a natural herbal supplement with incredible health benefits and a unique ability to potentially reduce chronic levels of inflammation in the body. One featured ingredient in this formula is organic turmeric, an herb that has many scientifically-proven health benefits, and is noted for being one of the most potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant herbs. Our formula uses three different extracts of organic regeneratively grown turmeric to get as many compounds from this amazing plant as possible.

A keynote on this formula is that our team formulated this tonic blend of herbs to boost the healing potential of each drop, this tonic formula contains the following synergistic ingredients:

Turmeric has been used in India for thousands of years as a spice and medicinal herb. Recently, science has confirmed that it really does contain compounds with medicinal properties. These compounds are called curcuminoids, the most important of which is curcumin. Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric, one that has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant.

Inflammation is an important healing function of the body. It helps your body fight foreign invaders and also has a role in repairing damage. Without inflammation, pathogens like bacteria could take over your body and kill you. Although acute, short-term inflammation is beneficial, it can become a major problem when it becomes chronic and inappropriately attacks your body's own tissues.

Curcumin is strongly anti-inflammatory. It is actually so powerful that it matches the effectiveness of some anti-inflammatory drugs, but without the side effects. Curcumin is a bioactive substance that fights inflammation at the molecular level by blocking NF-kB, a molecule that travels into the nuclei of your cells and turns on genes related to inflammation. NF-kB is believed to play a major role in many chronic diseases.

What many people don’t know about turmeric is that it is typically quite challenging for the human body to absorb, meaning that one can consume high doses of turmeric and receive little to no effect from it. What makes our inflammation tonic unique is our liposomal delivery system, which actually helps to maximize the absorption of the curcumin compound, making this tonic the most effective natural anti-inflammatory supplement on the market.

Liposomes are microscopic bubble-type particles which form a membrane made up of special molecules called phospholipids. Phospholipids are very similar to the membrane that surrounds each and every cell within our body. Many years ago, researchers discovered that these liposomes could be filled with therapeutic agents and nutrients. The membrane of the liposome can hold in a nutrient and will not release it until it reaches the bloodstream. This incredible technology protects nutrients from degradation as they pass through the harsh environment of stomach acids. Once they pass the intestines into the blood, the nutrients are delivered to the cells because the cell membrane is similar in chemical structure to the liposomes allowing the nutrients to enter the cells and replenish the body. 

Of course, lifestyle and nutrition are also essential factors when it comes to lowering inflammation in the body. Avoiding foods that promote inflammation—such as processed foods, foods high in sugar or vegetable oils, refined carbs, or foods containing toxic chemicals or grown with pesticides—and eating foods that help to reduce inflammation—such as fruit, vegetables, seeds, nuts, legumes, unrefined grains, and foods rich in antioxidants—as well as maintaining low stress levels, exercising often, and avoiding polluted environments are all important in reducing inflammation in the body. A healthy diet and lifestyle in combination with a powerful formula like our biodynamic inflammation tonic can dramatically reduce levels of inflammation in the body.
