A visually appealing golden yellow aromatic herb, Turmeric or Haridra as it is called in Sanskrit, is highly admired in Ayurveda for its quaintly charming properties. Sutraveda brings you the substantial benefits of organic turmeric in an easily consumable form - Sutraveda organic turmeric caplets. The golden yellow spice helps balance all the three doshas and is exceptionally good for pacifying Kapha and Pitta. It supports the normal healthy functioning of various systems in the body, including gut health. Sutraveda organic turmeric caplet promotes a healthy intestinal flora, helps ensure a normal Agni (digestive fire), and thus aids good inflammatory support.
RASAPANCHAKA / AYURVEDA ENERGETICS
Rasa – Tikta (Bitter), Katu (pungent)
Guna – Ruksha (Dry), Laghu (light)
Virya – Ushna (Hot)
Vipaka - Katu (Pungent)
Dosha karma - Tridosha Shamaka - especially Kapha and Pitta balancing
The active ingredient in turmeric, Curcumin helps reduce inflammatory changes in the body. When consumed as a spice in the daily diet in powder form, only a very minute quantity of active ingredients from turmeric enters the body. Also, turmeric when taken alone, Curcumin gets metabolized or excreted from the body before it reaches the bloodstream. But, when combined with piperine, the bioactive constituent in black pepper (Piper nigrum), the bioavailability of Curcumin increases in the body. Sutraveda organic turmeric caplets are potentiated with organic piperine powder which further enhances the absorption and bioavailability of active constituents in Turmeric.
Rich in antioxidants, the organic turmeric caplet retains the active component of turmeric, Curcumin in its purest form. The herbal properties of Curcumin combined with piperine powder strengthens the natural defense mechanism of the body, skin health & joint wellbeing. The hot potency (ushna virya) and bitter (tikta), pungent (katu) tastes of turmeric aid a mobilizing and cleansing property in the body. It also helps in maintaining optimum blood glucose levels and supports respiratory health by expelling the accumulated Kapha.
Why We Are So Good!
All Sutraveda products are essentially based on ancient Ayurvedic wisdom, combined with most modern research findings. As per Ayurveda, the same herb can act differently when consumed in different forms like Churna (powder), Kalka (paste), Swarasa (concentrated juice), etc. Studies have also shown that the active components in Turmeric include lipid and water-soluble constituents. We believe in providing the complete efficacy of the herb without compromising the quality and hence came up with a unique combination of different extracted forms of turmeric in a single caplet. To further enhance the bioavailability of the golden herb, the caplet is enriched with an optimum quantity of organic piperine powder as well! Studies have shown that piperine can enhance the bio-availability of curcumin, thereby pronouncing the health benefits of turmeric*.*Majeed M. et al. (1998). Planta Med.;64(4):353-356

Our Love For Turmeric & The Story Behind It
Saying Is One Thing ,
But Proving Is Another
Ayurveda, the ancient system of healing is still vaguely understood in all its essence. But at Sri Danvanthari Madom, we support evidence-based Ayurveda and depend on scientific research to provide what you truly deserve. We referred extensively and compared the different pharmacological aspects of Turmeric explained in the ancient Ayurveda texts with the available research studies.
Ayurveda has well-documented the benefits of turmeric in various inflammatory conditions of the body affecting the digestive system, respiratory system, musculoskeletal system, etc. Research proved that the curcuminoids present in turmeric inhibit the nuclear factor kappaB (NFkB), a transcription factor responsible for triggering the inflammatory mediators in the body. Curcuminoids are also shown to offer antioxidant support, natural immune support and potentially prevent connective tissue breakdown that aids in a healthy aging process.*Aggarwal B. et. al.(2006). Turmeric: The Genus Curcuma. pp 297-368)
The inflammatory responses are considered as deranged Pitta -Kapha activity in the body according to Ayurveda and turmeric is revered for its Pitta- Kapha pacifying property since ancient times. This makes Turmeric an effective herbal supplement in Arthritis, cardiovascular conditions, neurological diseases, liver-related disorders, and digestive problems.
Curcuminoids are also found to be effective in blocking the transformation, proliferation, and invasion of metastatic tumor cells, signifying Turmeric’s potential anti-cancerous activities*. Turmeric also helps maintain healthy blood glucose levels in the body*. Ayurveda documents Madhumeha as a condition with deranged Kapha dosha, quite similar to Type 2 diabetes. Turmeric is also known for its Kapha balancing properties because of its hot potency, bitter and pungent tastes proving its role in maintaining healthy blood glucose levels.Kuttan G. et al. (2007). Adv Exp Med Bio/.;595:173-84), Endocrinology 2008; 149(7): 3549-3558, BMC Complement. Altern. Med. 2010; 10:67, Biochem. Biophys. Res. Commun.2009;388(2):377-82.
Inspired by the Ancient Art
While we were brainstorming for our label design and tried to understand what inspires us the most, we ended up looking at dance, music & the fine arts! That's when we decided that we will pay tribute to the cultural heritage of the world. We started with the closest one to home. Kathakali.
Kathakali is one of the most fascinating traditional art forms in India’s rich cultural heritage. The intensely complex heavy theatrical makeup of the performing artists, the surreal picturesque costumes, unbelievably graceful gestures combined with an equally glorious and harmonically tuned background music is indeed a visual treat.
Most often, the ancient mythological stories constitute the main theme of Kathakali which represents the aesthetic cultural heritage of India. The strikingly graceful dramatic art took form and became more popular after the 17th century and has evolved beautifully ever since. The performance may last as long as 16 hours and takes the audience through a realistic yet very mystical experience.
Our love for art is a journey that we just started out. So we will be showcasing more art forms from different parts of the world on our labels. Keep an eye out for more, if you have more ideas please fell free to ping us.
Because The Earth Was Organic!
Thousands of years ago, when the wisdom of Ayurveda formulations was conceived, the entire herbs in this earth were organic. Ayurveda proposes that the individual is an integral part of mother Nature. Hence the harmful chemicals used in Nature will lead to serious after-effects in the individual. It is mentioned in Ayurveda, that any herb grown in a polluted environment loses its innate Rasa (taste), Guna (qualities), virya (potency) Gandha (smell), etc, thus affecting its pharmaceutical actions. The cultivation of plants whether for consumption or medicinal use should be done sustainably, with minimum interaction from chemicals, to ensure good health and longevity, creating a more positive impact on mental and emotional health. Ayurveda, a holistic wisdom of health, places immense importance on the purity of herbs. We at Organic Ayurveda Inc by Sri Dhanvanthari Madom believe healing herbs need to be as pure as certified organic, sourced sustainably, consumed responsibly.
