Me First Living, LLC is a company founded by a young woman who wanted to find a safer, more natural way to fight pain and ailments. Inspired by her Vietnamese mother she set out to produce a safer supplement to better the human body. Our first product, Me First Living Turmeric Curcumin with Black Pepper is the first of many solutions for these all too common pains.
Turmeric, an Asian plant of the ginger family, is mostly known for its culinary purposes in southern Asian cuisines such as curry. It has long been used for medicinal purposes in ancient Chinese medicine and Indian Ayurveda practices. Due to its most active ingredient, Curcumin, Turmeric possess numerous benefits including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-fungal, anti-septic, the list goes on! It is believed by many scientists and researchers that inflammation may be the root cause of most chronic diseases including pain, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, Crohn’s disease, heart disease, and even cancer. Prior to its scientific discovery in western culture, Turmeric has been used for centuries in the east to help enhance liver function, immune health, digestion, metabolism, mood, skin complexion, and even more!
Although there are anti-inflammatory drugs on the market produced by large pharmaceutical companies, they present many health risks and are not safe for extended use. For that reason, many pharmaceutical companies have tried on multiple occasions to patent turmeric but have been denied every time due to turmeric being a natural ingredient (fortunately for us!).
There are several scientific studies by universities internationally to suggest Turmeric has amazing and effective healing properties. The majority of these studies have only been conducted on animals which show promising results. However, human studies have not yet been conducted and because of this these studies are still in their infancies so no solid claim is able to be made at this time. Although a claim cannot be made, the evidence is overwhelming. Many doctors and scientists believe in this miracle spice that nature has provided us.
