The Power of Curcumin: Unveiling Turmeric’s Healing Properties

Sameed Ijaz

Turmeric is a mainstay of herbal healing. It’s a plant in the ginger family. It is native to southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent and is best known for its bright orange rootstalk. Turmeric is a staple of many Asian cuisines, famously giving curry its bright color and providing a warm, bitter flavor. Curcumin is a polyphenol and the main pharmacologically active component of turmeric from which it derives its yellow color and, many assume, its healing properties. Indeed, there are numerous potential health benefits of turmeric/curcumin. But here, we will focus on its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties as well as its potential to boost BDNF levels.


Ancient Medicine

Amazingly, Ayurvedic practitioners have used Turmeric and, by extension, its derivative curcumin since around 500 BCE. However, it’s important to note that ancient medical systems like Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, and Native American medicine always employed whole single herbs and blends of the same.

There is likely some wisdom in this. Isolating and refining molecules from whole foods is generally a bad idea. This is because nature sends messages, and natural, whole foods send a specific message to our incredibly complicated bodily supercomputer. 

Refined ingredients are like a completely alien message that our body may not interpret as intended. And, this can have unexpected consequences mid to long-term, even if the immediate effects appear to be strictly positive.


mygotostack Supplement Creation

All things considered, our aim in using curcumin in mygotostack products was to provide the single best source on the planet for the supplements recommended by FLCCC leaders Dr. Pierre Kory, Dr. Paul Marik, and famous pandemic freedom fighters like Drs. Peter McCullough and Zev Zelenko.

We’ve achieved this without the addition of any harmful inactive ingredients like silicon dioxide or magnesium stearate, which are found in all other similar formulations on the market today.

The cost of creating supplements without these inactive ingredients is twice as much as the industry standard. This is because we pack our supplements by hand instead of using large-scale industrial machines. The inactive ingredients are what allow them to pass through the manufacturing process without jamming or damaging the machines.

In addition, when evaluating different turmeric/curcumin products, it’s important to know that combining curcumin with piperine from black pepper has been shown to increase its bioavailability by up to 2000%.

Now, let's examine curcumin's anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and BDNF-boosting properties.

Curcumin & Inflammation

Normally, Inflammation is your body’s immune response to germs, pathogens such as SARS-CoV2 Spike protein, foreign objects such as splinters, external injuries, and other irritants.

However, in the case of chronic inflammatory diseases such as Rheumatoid arthritis or Crohn’s disease, your immune system seems to fight against your body’s own cells (seems to, because your body's innate superintelligence’s prime directive is to keep you alive no matter what, even if that means maneuvering in strange ways around a toxic environment).

Inflammation occurs when your body produces substances known as inflammatory mediators. These substances increase blood flow to the affected area. The blood flow allows more immune cells to access the damaged tissue.

There are four key components of inflammation:

Inducers: These are triggers like an injury or an infection.

Sensors: They detect the triggers and signal that there's a problem.

Mediators: These are the messengers that spread the alarm and cause inflammation.

Effectors: They are the ones who carry out the inflammation, like causing swelling or pain.

Curcumin halts inflammation by binding to the sensors and interrupting the mediator response. In this way, it acts as an anti-inflammatory.

In lab studies, curcumin also appears to decrease the levels of certain inflammatory mediators, such as Interleukin-6, which is involved in the response to spike protein and SARS-Cov-2 infection.

Curcumin As An Antioxidant

Oxidative stress occurs when your body contains more free radicals than antioxidants.

Free radicals are molecules that contain both oxygen and unpaired electrons. Free radicals want to either share their unpaired electrons with other molecules or take electrons from them. This exchange of electrons can lead to chain reactions that cause oxidation.

To clarify, oxidation is a natural process necessary for certain bodily functions, such as cellular respiration.

Antioxidants are substances that halt or inhibit oxidation. When free radicals outnumber antioxidants, oxidation occurs at a rate that can lead to the breakdown of cellular tissue and even DNA. In fact, studies link oxidative stress to diabetes, Parkinson's, ALS, multiple sclerosis, and cancer, among other serious conditions.

Fortunately, curcumin binds to and helps remove reactive oxygen, nitrogen, and toxic heavy metals, preventing oxidative stress.


Curcumin & BDNF Levels

Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is a protein that plays a crucial role in learning and long-term memory. Curcumin has been shown to increase BDNF levels. Elevated BDNF levels may help combat neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and multiple sclerosis.

Curcumin & Clotting

Curcumin has anti-clotting effects that are important for supporting the body's ability to respond to the atypical amyloid fibrin microclots found in spikopathies, as well as helping to calm down activated platelets found in many chronic illnesses.

The Root That Gets To The Root

Of course, like all the best therapeutics, curcumin also has effects that target the real root cause of issues like viruses. For example, it has antiviral effects in infection and direct anti-spike effects post-infection or injection.

When comnbined with nattokinase and bromelain it has been shown to effectively detach spike from receptors, release it from microclots and digest to be flushed out in the urine.

We’ve put the Nattokinase and bromelain in a separate product, DETOX [spike buster], since they should be taken on an empty stomach and can’t be combined with the curcumin found in our IMMUNITY [herbals] product, which is to be taken with food.  

The Benefits of Curcumin Summarized

To sum up, curcumin can help reduce inflammation, relieve oxidative stress, aid in brain function, and root out the underlying causes of disease. 

Curcumin has specific utility for COVID-19/Long Haul/Cov-Vax injuries, as it can reduce inflammation by binding to appropriate sensors, halting mediator responses, and directly lowering Interleukin-6 levels. What’s more, curcumin has anti-clotting effects that help reduce the atypical amyloid fibrin microclots found in all spikopathies.

IMMUNITY [herbals] from mygotostack

At mygotostack, we’ve combined curcumin with piperine extract to boost its absorption and bioavailability. In addition, our formula also contains important supporting and synergistic herbs:

Organic Nigella Sativa: hailed for centuries as the cure for all diseases, it is recommended by the FLCCC for its anti-spike effects, including blocking specific spike-induced effects like inflammation and clotting.

Organic Dandelion Leaf: potently inhibits spike binding to the human ACE-2 receptor. It has a strong antiviral and anti-inflammatory effect for SARS-CoV-2. We included this optional add-on from the FLCCC protocol due to its synergistic activity. We opted for Dandelion Leaf instead of an inert filler because there was enough room in the capsules for it.
