Curcumin also stops platelets from clumping together to form blood clots.

According to Dr. Weil MD, a holistic health professional, "Turmeric contains more than two dozen anti-inflammatory compounds, including six different COX-2-inhibitors (the COX-2 enzyme promotes pain, swelling and inflammation; inhibitors selectively block that enzyme)." 

Turmeric is also jam packed with anti-oxidants, anti-oxidants are said to provide the additional benefit of fighting free-radicals. Free-radicals are atoms with an additional electron.

Anti-oxidants prevent cellular damage.

Ceramides: Ceramide is the main component of the stratum corneum and of the epidermis layer of human skin.

Together with cholesterol and saturated fatty acids, ceramides create a water-impermeable, protective organ to prevent excessive water loss due to evaporation as well as a barrier against the entry of microorganisms. With aging there is a decline in ceramide and cholesterol in the stratum corneum of humans.

Our skin is protected from germs and infections by the lipid barrier. In addition the lipid barrier helps keep moisture in. Ceramides play a vital role in both infection protection and moisture retention within the lipid barrier.

Many skin care products use plant structures and characteristics to improve their efficacy. Boli Phytoceramides are no different.  Derived from rice, Boli’s phytoceramides contain lipids that are the same as those found naturally in our skin; and they may mimic their actions to provide moisture to the dermal layers of our skin. Ceramides stimulate collagen production which improves the structure of the skin and ultimately plumps it up. With phytoceramides it has been surmised to have the opportunity to improve your skin from the inside out.
