Turmeric, this spice from India, has been used years ago for its many virtues.
It has been proven by its traditional use but its effectiveness has also been proven by a lot of clinical studies.
However, it is not enough to add turmeric to your diet to feel the benefits, for one simple reason;
Turmeric in its initial form, is extremely poorly assimilated by the body. Indeed, you should consume a big quantity of turmeric (more than 1 kg per day!) to feel the effects.
Therefore, when you decide to take a turmeric-based dietary supplement, you should choose a bio-optimized turmeric extract, ie. which has been made highly assimilable by the body.
And this choice is difficult: why?
Because some laboratories, to improve the resorption of turmeric, mix it with chemicals, such as polysorbate 80 (or also called preservative E433). But this polysorbate is not without consequences, because it is present at very large quantities in the capsules. Thus, when you consume this type of products, you swallow more than 2g of this synthetic substance … Indeed, the tolerated dose in the EU for this substance is maximum 10mg / kg of body weight per day. If you do the math, you’re way over the limit!
What can be the side effects of polysorbate 80?
- Irritation of the stomach
- Disturbance of intestinal flora
- Laxative effect
- Possibly cytotoxic substance
