How Turmeric+ is helping Anne stay fit to enjoy life
When your passions in life revolve around being active, looking after yourself becomes vitally important, especially as we get older. This is how dressage and fitness enthusiast Anne Evans came to discover the power of turmeric.

Anne, aged 57 from Cirencester, has been riding horses for 20 years as well as having a keen interest in gardening.

Despite Anne leading an active lifestyle, she began to find her joints were not quite what they used to be. Anne, along with her husband, began to search the joint supplement ranges at various supplement companies. It was this research that led her to Turmeric+.

'I consider myself to be fit and active, however age does eventually creep up on you and you notice these little niggles occur on a more frequent basis.' said Anne. 'Those little niggles can have an impact on the amount of fun you have, I was determined that was not going to happen to me.'

It was over a year ago that Anne’s search for a solution got underway and that led her to Turmeric+, the leading product in our Joint Health range. ‘After much research with the help of my husband, a biochemist who has a very good understanding of how the body functions, I decided that Turmeric+ was something I should try,’ she says.

While millions of us love adding turmeric to our meals throughout the week, research shows that you need to consume Turmeric+ daily to boost levels in the body1.

As with any ingredient, there’s an obstacle to overcome; you need to make sure that you are absorbing enough of what you eat into your body. The key component of turmeric is curcumin, but this only accounts for 3% of standard turmeric powder and most of it is broken down by the digestive system before it can be absorbed.

'It was the research at the Olympic Research Centre in Barcelona2 that really caught my eye. Knowing it was used by international footballers and elite athletes made me think it must be able to do something for me.'

The curcumin in Turmeric+ is combined with lecithin. This patented combination allows the curcumin to be absorbed by the body. Studies have shown that the formulation is 30 times more absorbable than standard turmeric3, even when it is consumed with food, and it has been the subject of more scientific studies than any other bioavailable curcumin supplement.

It is several years since Anne started taking Turmeric+ and it is proving to be a real winner. Anne is horse riding, attending the gym, taking part in pilates and much more on a weekly basis, while also keeping up with all of her day-to-day activities.

'I love the product and have told many of my friends about it. When you discover something this good, you need to share the news. This fits my mantra of being fit for your life.'
