TONIK’s Curcumin: The Under-the-Radar Nutrient You Need to Know About

It contains a medicine chest’s worth of benefits…

As far as superstar nutrients go, curcumin might not be on your radar — but it should be. It’s the active ingredient in turmeric (aha, now THAT you’ve heard of!), which is loaded with health benefits. The Food Lover’s Companion (a classic culinary dictionary of sorts), gives a quick history on the root: First, it’s part of a tropical plant that’s related to ginger and often grows in India and the Caribbean. Another cool detail: in ancient times, turmeric was often to make perfume since it has a rich, earthy fragrance. Today, the spice is super popular in curry dishes, and also the primary ingredient used in mustard to give it that bright yellow color.

Think of curcumin as the hero of turmeric — it’s responsible for providing the bulk of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and holistic expert Dr. Andrew Weil estimates that two to six percent of the spice is made up of curcumin. So what’s the best way to get your fix, besides eating lots of curry and smearing mustard on everything? Tonik has a much easier solution: a 750 milligram supplement, which it now conveniently offers in a daily tablet form.

Pop one and here’s a quick overview of the wellness improvements you might notice…
