Prebiotics & Probiotics: What's the deal?

By Res-Q editor Yesterday 15 Views No comments

Learn how they work together to make you healthy.

Prebiotics are the fuel that allow probiotics to do their work. Prebiotic fiber goes through the small intestine undigested and then help probiotics flourish when they reach the large intestine, or colon. You can get prebiotics from food sources like garlic, onions and bananas.

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that contribute to a healthy microbiome. They help relieve common digestive symptoms such as flatulence and bloating and play a vital role in supporting a healthy immune system. Res-Q ProBiotic is a great product to help you build heathy gut flora.

5 Superpowers of Curcumin

By Res-Q editor 1 month ago 211 Views No comments

Curcumin contains powerful compounds with medicinal properties. These health benefits largely stem from its powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Let’s take a closer look.

1. Lowers inflammation. Curcumin is a powerful natural anti-inflammatory. It inhibits the COX-2 enzyme, the same enzyme targeted by NSAIDs. This means curcumin can act as a natural pain-reliever, as well as reduce your risk for many chronic illnesses.

2. Potent antioxidant. It prevents free radicals from causing harmful effects in the body. We are all exposed to free radicals, so having plenty of antioxidants on board is essential for staying healthy.

3. Benefits the brain. Curcumin appears to protect the brain and helps to prevent conditions such as dementia and Alzheimer’s. Studies have also shown that curcumin can boost memory and improve mood.

4. Protects the heart. Curcumin has been shown to promote heart health through various mechanisms. It has been shown to reduce cholesterol, improve endothelial health (the endothelium is the inner lining of your arteries), helps prevent arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythm), and has been shown in studies to help prevent heart attack.

5. Helps fight cancer. Curcumin has been shown to affect cancer growth, development, and spread on a molecular level. Lab studies have also shown that curcumin may help prevent several types of cancers, including prostate, breast, skin, and colon cancer.

Almost everyone can benefit from curcumin’s powerful effects. Look for a supplement like Res-Q CurcuminULTRA which has Piperine.

This inhibits the metabolic breakdown of turmeric compounds in the gut and liver, allowing higher concentrations of curcumin to remain in the body, substantially increasing bioavailability.
