Frequently Asked Questions
What is Turmeric?
Turmeric is a spice that is a member of the ginger family and is commonly mixed with other spices to make curry that people use to make certain dishes. Turmeric has a deep golden color. It has been used for centuries not only for its rich culinary flavors but also because of its many health benefits. Today, scientists have isolated the bioactive ingredients from turmeric called CURCUMIN that is responsible for turmeric’s wellness properties. Over 11,000 publications can be found online researching turmeric’s and curcumin’s many potential health benefits.
What is Curcumin?
CURCUMIN is the active ingredient found in turmeric that is responsible for turmeric’s health benefits. Unfortunately, only 3-5% of curcumin is found in the turmeric root. Furthermore, curcumin found in the turmeric root is very poorly absorbed by the body. Therefore, it has always been a challenge to maximize the benefits of curcumin by consuming regular turmeric or curcumin extracts.
Why is ARYA (The Heart of Turmeric) different from others in the market?
ARYA’s proprietary method of preparing curcumin has resulted in a curcumin blend that has superior absorption, is highly water soluble without the bitter turmeric aftertaste. Each of our ARYA drinks and gummies will provide you the benefits of one tablespoon (or 7 grams) of turmeric powder in terms of curcumin that is absorbed by your body. Therefore, you can enjoy the refreshing natural taste of ARYA Sparkling Water just like any sparkling water in the market while enjoying the benefits of our highly absorbed curcumin.
Why are the ARYA Sparkling Waters and Gummies golden yellow?
Since ARYA contains curcumin, the bio-active heart of turmeric, ARYA also retains the natural turmeric golden yellow color.
