The Lesser-Known (Amazing) Benefits Of Turmeric


Turmeric has become one of the most studied herbs in medical science.  This remarkable adaptogen is so versatile that we created not one, but two separate PHONEME INFUSED™ formulas, HI-HEALTH and SHREEM BRZEE TURMERIC.  

The ‘golden goddess herb’ is believed to cleanse the 72,000 invisible “Nadi” channels of the body, thereby enabling the free flow of life-force energy.

Our unique PHONEME-INFUSION™ process creates uncommon Turmeric formulas. supercharged by sacred sound vibrations selected by our Founder, Dr. Baskaran Pillai, according to ancient Siddha medicine tradition.   

While the  anti-inflammatory properties of Turmeric are well-known, today we’ll take a look at some lesser-known but equally powerful benefits:

Turmeric Lifts Moods

In a study called Efficacy and Safety of Curcumin in Major Depressive Disorder, researchers divided subjects with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) into three groups. One took the anti-depressant Prozac. Another took curcumin, the active ingredient of Turmeric, in an oil-based form. A third group took a combination of the two. The combo group performed the best in tests of mood and other symptoms after six weeks. The other two scored roughly the same, with the Prozac group doing just a couple percentage points better. Don’t take this as advice to drop your medications. That’s not within our domain. The point is that this, and other studies, show that Turmeric is good for moods. (1)

Turmeric is Antifungal, Antiviral & Antibacterial

Turmeric in milk slows milk from spoiling and reduces fungal growth in bread. Applying Turmeric to cuts and burns may accelerate healing of the tissues, reduce inflammation and burn pain, and prevent infections (2). It also improves blood flow to speed healing.

Turmeric Protects the Brain from Cognitive Decline, Improves Memory & Contentment

A 2015 Australian study found that Curcumin, taken orally, improves working memory and attention as people age, partly due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Curcumin is the main active ingredient in Turmeric. The same researchers also noted greater contentment and positive moods. (4)

Don’t Forget the Piperine!

A compound called piperine, found in black pepper, increases the amount of curcumin you absorb from Turmeric by up to 20 times (5). It may vary according to the quality of the Turmeric and black pepper, as well as the amounts of curcumin and piperine you ingest. Nambu’s Hi-Health Formula contains a black pepper extract that standardizes the quality and quantity of piperine.


Hi-Health Formula is PHONEME INFUSED™ with sound vibrations that support self-esteem, resilience and willpower. These are essential ingredients for achieving your goals.
