The Ancient Spice That Heals
Turmeric has been used for centuries as food and medicine, dating back at least 4000 years. Modern medicine has begun to recognize its importance as well — as indicated by the over 3000 studies dealing with turmeric that have been published within the last 25 years. Turmeric continues to garner attention from the health community, thanks to its antioxidant properties and potential to promote a healthy inflammatory response.*
Compound Phenol Formula
Curcumin is an active polyphenol in turmeric. Polyphenols are plant-based antioxidants, and evidence for their role in preventing degenerative conditions is increasing. NatureWise Organic Curcumin additionally includes organic ginger, a polyphenol with complementary antioxidant properties. The combined support of curcumin and ginger may assist in several protective functions in the GI tract and in the liver, and in several studies curcumin has demonstrated anti-inflammatory activity.*
Derived from Organic Turmeric
Unlike some products which use lab-created synthetic curcumin, we only use curcumin that is naturally derived from organic turmeric root, combined with organic ginger root and patented BioPerine black pepper extract.
Despite their extraordinary potential, many herbs can have limited benefits due to poor absorption. Our formula includes organic ginger and BioPerine black pepper extract to improve the bioavailability and benefits of curcumin. BioPerine has been clinically shown to increase absorption by as much as 4x, making NatureWise Organic Curcumin more effective than other formulas that do not contain clinically proven bioenhancers.*

It is an irresistible combination of fluffy hot-from-the-steamer rice drizzled with gulai ayam and served with easy-to-eat pieces of juicy fried turmeric chicken and burn-your-tongue-off sambal belacan that draws people to Warung Cikgu in Puchong.
Started in May 2005, the eatery was set up by Kelantan native Ariff Suqimi and managing the two outlets is Ariff’s primary school friend and fellow Kelantanese, Nik Mohd Faiz, 28.
The name of the place pays tribute to Ariff’s father who is popularly known as Cikgu Karim, a nod to his profession. This January, they expanded and opened another outlet in USJ1’s Regalia Business Centre.
What they serve here is nasi Mmanggey which is actually different from the other Kelantanese favourite nasi Kak Wok. Confused because both dishes look identical? Can’t say we blame you as they are both feature fried chicken.
Nik Mohd Faiz tells us there are slight differences between the two rice dishes that trace their origins back to Kelantan. He adds, “The concept is the same but the taste is different.”
For nasi Mmanggey, the fried chicken is marinated with turmeric powder, chilli powder and salt while the nasi Kak Wok chicken uses a marinade made from fresh turmeric. In terms of spice levels for the sambal belacan accompanying the rice, Nik Mohd Faiz explains to us that they increased the spiciness.
In Kelantan, nasi Mmanggey (RM5.50) is usually eaten for breakfast and lunch. At Warung Cikgu, you get to satisfy your cravings for the rice dish throughout the day.
Accompany your meal with their kelapa baldi (RM4.20) or fresh coconut water served in a small bucket. Nik Mohd Faiz tells us the coconuts are sourced from Bagan Datoh in Perak.
You also have Shake!Gu (RM3.70), their version of coconut shake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The word gu is Kelantanese slang for buddy.If you’re early, look for their breakfast items which are available till 10am. A must-try is the nasi lemak biasa (RM2.70). Simple but satisfying; the fluffy rice is delicious when paired with the fragrant, not too spicy sambal and crunchy deep fried ikan bilis. [...]
Arthritis affects around 10 million people in the UK
Symptoms include joint pain, swelling and redness.
Many sufferers relieve pain by taking paracetamol and ibuprofen.
However, research published earlier this year in the British Medical Journal revealed that taking the latter painkiller - or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) - could increase risk of heart attack or stroke.
Fortunately, there are natural ways to treat or prevent joint pain, according to Dr Sarah Brewer, a GP and nutritional therapist.
Avoid uneven ground
“For people who are experiencing age or activity related joint symptoms, low impact, aerobic exercises such as swimming, cycling and walking are most beneficial,” she said.
“Avoid prolonged kneeling, squatting or walking more than 2 miles per day, however, which may have an adverse effect on joints.
“You should also avoid walking on rough or uneven ground.
“Gentle, regular exercise helps to maintain joint mobility.
“As well as strengthening muscles it boosts the flow of oxygen and nutrients to joint tissues – especially vital for cartilage which does not have a blood supply and must obtain its nutrients by diffusion.
“Exercise also helps to maintain the layer of lubricating synovial fluid over the articular surface.
“Avoid exercising if a joint is inflamed or swollen, however, until symptoms have subsided.”
Add spice to your diet
Dr Brewer also recommends adding particular ingredients to your diet.
“There is a surprisingly long list of natural substances that can help knee pain, from those that provide structural building blocks to those that have analgesic and anti-inflammatory actions,” she said.
“The ones I have found most beneficial in clinical and nutritional medicine practice are krill oil, turmeric, rose hip extracts, devil’s claw, cherry extracts and ginger root extract.”
Along with hyaluronic acid, hydrolysed collagen, glucosamine and chondroitin, these ingredients can all be found in LQ Liquid Health Jointcare, a supplement for osteoarthritis sufferers by suppressing inflammation and repairing damaged tissues. [...]
