Turmeric root has been used since ancient times as a potent spice and is known for its impressive range of health benefits including its antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and liver supportive properties. Turmeric root consists of over 100 different compounds, including volatile oils, sesquiterpenes, polysaccharides and curcuminoids. The phenolic compounds, curcuminoids, are among the most researched plant actives of turmeric root and known for their antioxidant activity.
The ancient art of fermentation is the process of converting complex carbohydrate molecules to a pre-digested, simpler form. This enhances nutrient bioavailability, increases digestibility and antioxidant activity. Terranova combines both fermentation and fresh freeze-drying methods to create the most exceptional biochemically active and nutritionally enhanced products.
Fermeric™ is Terranova’s new innovative fermented turmeric rhizome powder. Via the fermentation process, Lactobacillus plantarum, converts curcuminoids into their tetrahydrocurcuminoid metabolites. Research shows that these curcuminoid metabolites have higher stability, higher bioavailability and higher antioxidant potency than the original curcuminoids. When fermentation is complete, the microflora strain is inactivated. Research shows that these ‘parabiotics’ maintain health-promoting effects such as immune-modulation and fortification of intestinal barrier integrity.
Freeze dried whole turmeric root contains the entire range of health-promoting phytonutrients found in turmeric in a more concentrated form than when fresh, but in ratios that are consistent with the fresh plant’s natural content. By combining Fermeric™ and freeze-dried whole turmeric root powder, this product has the advantages of both.
