Ancestral to many cultures, these two products with anti-inflammatory properties are now combined in a revolutionary functional product from Symbeeosis.
It is widely accepted among Nutrition Science researchers that our consumption habits are cultural and, to a large extent, based on local customs: food is a cultural heritage, but we can understand more and include or exclude food choices. On the one hand, although many countries such as India have known about the properties of turmeric and consumed it for thousands of years, it is only in recent years that western countries have become familiar with its flavour and extraordinary anti-inflammatory properties.
On the other hand, honey is an ancient food whose infinite antioxidant, medicinal, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties are well known. Its use is ancestral and there are cave representations of honey showing human interest in the attractive qualities of this ambrosia.
Recent discoveries confirm that multiple diseases such as cancer, type 2 diabetes, autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases are associated with chronic inflammation: in fact, recent studies claim that more than 50% of deaths worldwide are associated with some form of inflammation.
The main problem with chronic inflammation is that it is a silent disease; that is, it can cause the body’s tissues to suffer damage for years without any symptoms, discomfort or pain. So how can we know if we are suffering from chronic inflammation? To do this, we need to review our habits and our physical condition. Poor diet, poor sleep, stress, obesity, exposure to chemicals, lack of exercise, smoking and alcohol are all factors that trigger an inflammatory response in the body in different ways. If, on the other hand, we eat a diet rich in fibre and plant foods, low in sugars, fats and processed meats, maintain a healthy weight, exercise, keep stress at bay and sleep well, we will be much less likely to suffer from this disease in its various manifestations.
Thanks to Nutritional science, we know that there can be foods whose chemical composition makes them particularly interesting for preventing or treating inflammation. Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and cabbage, natural probiotics such as kefir, sauerkraut or kombucha, which regenerate the intestinal flora, or green leafy vegetables, are foods with anti-inflammatory properties that we should incorporate into our diet.
However, there are two foods that stand out in particular: turmeric and honey. Turmeric contains an active compound called curcumin, which has been shown to match the anti-inflammatory effect of certain drugs without side effects. On the other hand, recent studies have identified components in honey called H-VLNs, nanoparticles (membrane-bound particles containing proteins, lipids and ribonucleic acid) that stand out for their anti-inflammatory capacity.
