Hispanic Americans is one the highest growing populations. It has also become one of the highest risked groups to develop several health complications. Due to the western diet, many Hispanic Americans have been at high risk of developing diseases that were once considered under the radar.
The American diet or western diet consists of high saturated and trans fats, sugars, high-calorie processed foods, refined starches, fried foods, and red meat. Nothing listed states antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, or enzymes. Why? Because food scientists have discovered that we love this stuff! It’s pleasing to palate and its great business. Therefore, we are stuck with the consequences such as diabetes, arthritis, liver disorders, allergies, acne, digestive distress, free radicals, and inflammation.
Fortunately, Natura-Genics® has introduced Curcumin. This chemical compound or yellow pigment is found in turmeric and is derived from rhizomes (underground stems). Curcumin is considered a strong antioxidant with anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiarthritic properties. Furthermore, curcumin has shown therapeutic actions.

According to curcuminhealth.com in a small study of human volunteers, researchers stated a highly significant (29%), increase in HDL among subjects who consumed one-half gram (500 mg) of Curcumin per day for seven days.
