Curry Tree Leaf

Curry Tree Leaf

What Is It:

Curry tree leaf comes from a sub tropical tree native to India.    

Historic and Ancient Usage:

Well known for its aromatics, M. koenigii is consumed in many Asian cuisines. The leaves have been reported to possess the same pharmacological activities as stimulants, tonics, and carminative agents to treat influenza, fever, bronchial asthma and animal bites. Used as both a spice and medicine for thousands of years, curry tree leaf is recognized for its medicinal properties by the ancient Ayurvedic medicine system. Our curry tree leaves come from the same tree that produces the culinary spice used in curries.

 How It Works:

Curry tree leaf is one of nature’s most abundant sources of a class of natural compounds that are key regulators of the circadian clock. Not surprisingly, since new research shows that glucose levels are impacted by circadian rhythm, these special compounds have also been shown to help modulate blood sugar levels.

Why It Matters:

The chemistry in curry tree leaf has been shown to stabilize circadian rhythm.

SCIENCE GEEK ALERT

Science Proves It:

The pharmacological activity of M. koenigii and its carbazole alkaloids are well studied. In addition to stabilizing the circadian clock function, this ingredient has been shown to be a free radical scavenger, anti-inflammatory, hypoglycemic, hepatoprotective, anti-microbial, cardioprotective, memory enhancing, weight balancing, anti-diarrheal and anti-hyperlipidemic.  The very latest research continues to study how this ingredient positively effects our circadian clocks.
