Supplement of the Month


June - Traumeric


Our bodies are fascinating and complex; incredible machines with the ability to adapt and heal. When we are injured, our body takes up several actions to aid in the healing process, but sometimes there are steps we can take to aid in our body's natural processes and to help with the pain that is sometimes associated with some of our body's more noticeable responses.

Orthomolecular's pharmaceutical-grade line of supplements includes Traumeric. Turmeric is a bright orange-colored spice that has been in use for thousands of years in cooking and in medicine. Turmeric contains the active ingredient curcumin, which is an antioxidant that demonstrates anti-inflammatory properties in conditions such as arthritis, muscle sprains and other injuries.

Inflammation is the natural reaction of the immune system to heal and protect the body. Acute inflammation is a swift response your body implements to quickly distribute immune cells to a site of trauma. A bruise caused by bumping your elbow is a simple example of a situation where the body reacts with an acute inflammatory response. Traumeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory, which balances and helps to inhibit the pain response associate with your body's natural response to its trauma.
