Antioxidants abound in these ingredients, but that's just the start!
Here's a brief survey of the benefits of each ingredient, with a focus on turmeric, since it is the star and the workhouse of this blend.
The items below are some of the most commonly repeated by wellness and health experts, doctors, and scientists. It reinforced the essential knowledge and respect I had for these ingredients from Ayurveda, my own experience and, of course, my mother. And it makes me more excited than ever to make Resilience Blend available to you!
Turmeric (Curcuma Longa):
Hundreds of health benefits have been attributed to Turmeric, many of them comparable to pharmaceuticals. The short version: It makes your body and mind more RESILIENT!

- cellular health/ healing (Curcumin, a major component of turmeric, has been studied extensively for it's potential effectiveness in prevention and treatment of various cancers.)
- mental acuity/ brain function/ helps preserve memory by reducing plaque build up in the brain (These plaques affect cerebral function in Alzeheimer's Disease.)
- anti-inflammatory (There is a ton of research and articles about Turmeric's benefits in the treatment of various autoimmune diseases.)
- antimicrobial/antibacterial/antiviral/antiseptic (stomach, digestive system, skin, and general health)
