THE AMAZING SUPERFOOD FOR THE WHOLE BODY & ITS MANY BENEFITS
People are finally realizing what Ayurvedic practitioners in India have known for thousands of years: turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory that can potentially help combat inflammatory disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, slow the rate of cancer growth, and improve cognitive function. More recently, researchers have even been examining the potential for turmeric to enhance weight loss and decrease insulin resistance.
It is also important to know what most people don’t: turmeric is poorly absorbed in the body and has minimal impact on blood levels when taken alone.
One way of enhancing turmeric / curcumin absorption is through fermentation. Through this process turmeric is activated and its key component curcumin is broken down into micronutrients for easy absorption and bioavailability making it easier for you to assimilate its medicinal properties.
What is Turmeric?
Turmeric, (botanical name: Curcuma Longa) is a plant in the same botanical family as ginger. The powdered turmeric you find in the spice aisle is made from the root of the plant by boiling, drying and finely grinding the roots of the turmeric plant.
Although it grows in many tropical locations, the majority of turmeric is grown in India, where it is used as a main ingredient in curry.
This vibrant yellowish / orange powder, often considered as the ‘Holy Powder’ in Ayurveda has been used for centuries by Ayurvedic and Chinese medical professionals as medicine for over 5,000 years. It is taken internally in the form of medicinally made juice, tinctures or specially made powder for the treatment of inflammatory disorders. It has an affinity for the blood and therefore able to circulate its powerful health benefits throughout the body. It is used to support a number of systems and functions in the body.
Over the last few years, modern medicine has increasingly acknowledged the importance of turmeric as well, particularly the benefits of curcumin, a well-known and most studied phytonutrient in turmeric. Curcumin, is the active compound found in turmeric, a substance with over 100 pharmacological actions, including a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Research has shown that Curcumin (turmeric extract) has a variety of proven medicinal benefits. It is one of the most widely researched natural substance with over 15,000 studies published to date.
Chronic inflammation is known to be a contributor to many common diseases. Curcumin can inhibit many molecules known to play major roles in inflammation.
Inflammation plays a vital role in fighting foreign invaders and repairing damage. If there is no inflammation, bacteria can overrun the body and eventually kill us. It’s when the inflammation becomes chronic (long-term) that issues begin and it’s believed that this can play a major contribution in every chronic disease. Alzheimer’s, cancer, heart disease, metabolic syndrome and various degenerative conditions can potentially be prevented and treated by addressing chronic inflammation.
Curcumin is known to target multiple steps in the inflammatory pathway, at the molecular level. This blocks NF-kB, a molecule that travels into the nuclei of cells and turns on genes related to inflammation. NF-kB is believed to play a major role in many chronic diseases.
Oxidative damage is believed to be one of the mechanisms behind aging and many diseases. It involves free radicals, highly reactive molecules with unpaired electrons. The main reason antioxidants are so beneficial, is that they protect our bodies from free radicals. Curcumin happens to be a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals due to its chemical structure and curcumin also boosts the activity of the body's own antioxidant enzymes. This makes Curcumin unique as it not only neutralizes free radicals on its own but it also stimulates the body's own antioxidant enzymes.
Antioxidants play a role in keeping our joints healthy. Your body uses antioxidants to combat free radicals. Free radicals are unstable particles that are created as a result of millions of chemical reactions in the body. They can cause oxidative stress and damage on a cellular level. When scientists examine the blood and joint fluid of patients that are suffering with joint discomfort, often times there is an increased activity of free radicals and lower levels of antioxidants. Curcumin being rich in antioxidants, can give you a healthy supply.
The connection between inflammation and cognitive health cannot be overstated. Neurons are especially susceptible to inflammation and the release of inflammatory compounds in the body can be neurotoxic. Curcumin may help protect those precious brain cells.
Curcumin boosts levels of the brain hormone BDNF (Brain-Derived Neutrotrophic Factor : a type of growth hormone that functions in the brain), which increases the growth of new neurons and fights various degenerative processes in the brain. By doing this, it may be effective at delaying or even reversing many brain diseases and age-related decreases in brain function.
A healthy heart consists of many factors, especially eating healthy and routine exercise. Adding curcumin as part of your healthy diet may have many benefits to protect your heart. Oxidized LDL (Low-density lipoprotein) particles (that have been disrupted by free radicals) may produce inflammation in the cardiovascular system. Studies suggest that the antioxidant effects of curcumin can help fight those free radicals.
Curcumin is also known to improve the function of the endothelium and is a potent anti-inflammatory agent and antioxidant.
Perhaps the main benefit of curcumin when it comes to heart disease, is improving the function of the endothelium, which is the lining of the blood vessels.
It is well known that endothelial dysfunction is a major driver of heart disease and involves an inability of the endothelium to regulate blood pressure, blood clotting and various other factors. Several studies suggest that curcumin leads to improvements in endothelial function.
Alzheimer's disease is the most common neurodegenerative disease in the world and a leading cause of dementia.
One key feature of Alzheimer's disease is a build up of protein tangles called Amyloid plaques. Studies show that curcumin can help clear these plaques. Curcumin can cross the blood-brain barrier and has been shown to lead to various improvements in the pathological process of Alzheimer’s disease.
Arthritis is a common problem characterised by joint inflammation. There are several different types, but most involve some sort of inflammation in the joints.
Given that curcumin is a potent anti-inflammatory, it makes sense that it could help with arthritis. Several studies show this to be true. Many studies have looked at the effects of curcumin on arthritis and noted improvements in various symptoms and in some cases more effective than anti-inflammatory drugs.
Studies have shown that curcumin may work by reducing certain key inflammation-promoting enzymes in the body. In some studies curcumin performed well in promoting comfort and flexibility without the side-effects; providing a natural supplement alternative. Athletes and weekend warriors alike are also using it for muscle and joint health recovery, too.
Your liver plays an important role in stabilizing and balancing the maintenance of your body. The health of your liver can be directly related to oxidative stress and pro-inflammatory substances. Curcumin may help boost antioxidant defenses to help the liver detoxify and restore balance.
Your immune system is a network of various organs, tissues, and cells that work together to protect your body. Curcumin not only helps to enhance the responses of certain antibodies and cells within the immune system but may also help down regulate the expression of certain pro-inflammatory substances.
Curcumin, being a very powerful natural antioxidant, helps reduce and neutralize free radicals, which damage and destroy your cells and DNA causing accelerated aging. Since most ageing disorders are driven by oxidative stress, this makes curcumin a very important daily supplement for aging adults
Researchers have been studying curcumin as a beneficial herb in cancer treatment. It can affect cancer growth, development and spread at the molecular level.
Cancer involves the uncontrollable growth of cells and while there are many different forms, they have some commonalities and they do appear to be affected by supplementing with Curcumin.
In several studies, researchers have noted that Curcumin is beneficial in cancer treatment and in affecting the growth, development and spread at a molecular level.
Studies have also shown that Curcumin can reduce angiogenesis (growth of new blood vessels and tumours), metastasis i.e the spread of cancer along with contributing to cancerous cell death.
Curcumin leads to several changes on the molecular level that may help prevent and perhaps even treat cancer.

As a naturopathic doctor in practice for 15 years, I have considerable experience with supplements of all types.
The Turmeric Elixir is unlike any other turmeric product I have ever tried. Within a few days, I noticed my digestion was more efficient, and although I do not have joint pain, I noticed that my whole body just felt easier. As if inflammation I didn’t even know I had was gone.
I’ve had bad diverticulitis for a very long time. Had used many things and taken all kinds of medication & nothing helped. I was at the end of my peddle with things trying to find something to sort my problem out. Unless, I took a lot of tables before or after, nothing would work. The tablets were making me sicker.
I was told to take more fibre which was fine. I’ve always walked past turmeric and then I started reading about it. I was speaking to a lady who sold magnesium and she had suggested that I should try your product as it might work as it is for the gut. She takes it and simply loves it. I called and spoke to a nice gentleman who spoke to us about the digestive system. He suggested for me to take 20mls for 4 days and when I started on it, I started feeling really good. I was not having my usual pains and got better and better. My appetite got better and now I am able to eat foods that I couldn’t eat before. My appetite has come back and I’m eating all the foods that I want. It’s been a blessing. I’m feeling far more relaxed. I am such a believer in this product now and I won’t give up on it.
I did not have a high tolerance of certain foods and now, I’m able to eat anything. The doctor just couldn’t help.
Now, I’m there flogging it out to women I know who have a similar problem. I had a lot of stress at my back and neck and that’s just gone. I used to go to the chiropractor for this and I haven’t been back to see him as the pain’s all gone. I just can’t believe it !!. It’s taken all the stress away from my neck and back. I haven’t had any medication since I’ve been taking this fermented turmeric probiotic elixir.
My bowel movements were fluid prior to this and now its working normal. It certainly is working for me. Even my girlfriend who had also bought at the same time does not have any digestive issues any more.
I’m 73 and I haven’t felt so good. Back to do all the exercises that I used to do. Really feeling a lot more confident. It’s just wonderful, just wonderful. You are really my life savers!!
I think the following is the bomb. My guts best friend, Fermented turmeric syrup loaded with probiotics. I have worked out after much official and non offical testing that pretty much for the last 7 years I have had leaky gut which was probably brought on from an excessive use of antibiotics to combat mycoplasma which I got while living in Singapore. The symptoms varied over that time but the two main ones were close to chronic fatigue for about two years where I spent a lot of time in bed, on the couch, body like lead and the most incredible brain fog. I worked out it was being caused by an intolerance to wheat (probLy caused by a compromised gut lining due to the antibiotics). Apple cider vinegar was recommended and that helped a lot. So the terrible fatigue was sorted out. Took a break from wheat, brain fog stayed, scattered, unfocused remained until three months ago I saw this Tumeric at our local market. He said only when tumeric is fermented can the body truly absorb the goodness of it. Well it has made the most incredible difference. I am not old, losing my edge, ability to be focused and truly productive! I was just crook and it was all about the gut!! Look into leaky gut, it’s quite incredible how many problem it can cause such as what I’ve explained above, other illnesses, back pain, joint pain, your moods and more. Bone broths, cutting back on gut damaging toxins and getting the right gut bacterial floral so to speak are some of the keys to incredible health. Highly recco this and many of my friends have bought now and enjoying it delicious taste and good results. Over and out Tesha x
I used to take Turmeric & Probiotic separately. Now that I’ve discovered your product, the Fermented Turmeric plus Probiotic in liquid form, I can easily merry up the 2 together.
Loving the convenience and the taste. I also give a tiny amount to my pet dog. I find that its helped my inflammation of my back which I’ve been suffering from for many years.

I have been on blood pressure tablets for a very long time and have been wanting to get off them. I’ve been on the lookout for something that works but have not had much success. Thank goodness! I came across this product, the Active Turmeric Elixir Probiotic. Ever since I have been taking it and it’s been about 3 months now, my blood pressure has gone normal and I have the go ahead from my doctor to stop taking the blood pressure tablets. I have been monitoring my blood pressure and its been amazing, its been normal. My husband too is in the same situation as myself and has the same results.
I sure am passing the good word around to my sisters, family and friends. My doctor too has started on it. I am so glad that I’ve come across something natural and that works for me and my family. Sure hope that this product never runs out as its the only thing that has worked for us.
Thank you SANITA for this. You cannot imagine how grateful we are.

I have started referring your Fermented Turmeric Probiotic to so many of my friends. Thank you
I am 70 years old and I’ve been suffering from heart palpitations and pain in my knee and as a result using a walking stick to walk but have not been able to walk for long. I have had to stop every 5 minutes to rest. Ever since I started taking the Fermented Turmeric Elixir, my palpitations have stopped, and I’ve been able to walk for longer periods without the pain. So glad that my daughter-in-law bought this product for me to try out. I’m so thankful for coming across this wonderful product. It has changed my life.
This drink is truly amazing! Tastes great, easy to take. I’ve tried many products over the years but nothing has had a bigger impact so fast.
Right away I noticed less bloating and being more regular. I will definitely keep taking this and I’m recommending it to everyone I know.
Thank you to the SANITA staff who had spent so much your time explaining to me about turmeric and its many benefits and how it should be taken to be effective in our body. Your knowledge is truly commendable, and I believe that you providing such a fantastic product. Thank you for your great service and quick delivery. One happy customer!!
A friend had bought your Fermented Turmeric Probiotic from somewhere. She has leukemia & very bad arthritis. Is in pain all the time.
In taking your product, her pain was relieved and has gone off medication. Had run out of your product. She went to the health food store and picked up another product and hates it. Does nothing for her. Can’t wait for Sanita's Turmeric Probiotic to arrive so she can get back on it again. Thank you!
I purchased your Fermented Turmeric Probiotic a few weeks ago. I have been having knee, ankle & hip pain and shopping was such a chore as I had to stop several times to rest as the pains were unbearable while walking.
After 2 weeks of taking your product, I’ve never felt better, feeling so good, no pain. I’ve been able to do my shopping at Woolworths, then went to Kmart and then Target without even stopping to rest and best of all, no pain. This product has done it!! Its done wonders for me and its so wonderful.
Not taking my pain killers anymore as there’s no need to.
Can’t do without this product now. I had only bought one bottle to trial it out and now I wish I had bought 2 at that point as I’ve only got 2 doses left. Please send my order through quickly as I sincerely cannot do without it. It’s God sent!! Thank you so, so much.
The Turmeric Probiotic arrived just in time. Three and a half weeks down and I’m extremely pleased with how much it has helped my pain, so quickly and effectively from my fibromyalgia. I have recommended this product far and wide, even to my family overseas.
I have been taking this product for several months now and find it to be highly beneficial to my health as a daily tonic and as a healing aid when I feel I’m coming down with something. I have bought this product for family and friends and they have all come back for more. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
Thank you for getting my order out so fast. I’d run out of it and I really felt the difference in not having the Fermented Turmeric.
I thank you for a quality product. LOVE IT !! LOVE IT !!
I’m so enjoying SANITA’s elixir & ashwagandha. Both of these products work well for me any my husband.
Thumbs up to you guys!!
