It’s absolutely necessary that you know about curcumin, a potent component of turmeric, a plant used in India as a spice and medicine for centuries. But when it comes to taking curcumin as a supplement, you don’t want to settle for the name without the absorption. Don’t be fooled by thinking that just using turmeric, or a curcumin that isn’t highly absorbable will get you the results you hear about when it comes to curcumin. It doesn’t work that way. This week we’ll continue on with why you have to understand what curcumin does and why it’s so important that you pick the right kind. It’s the all-in-one health solution, and now you will understand why.

I think your varicose veins will love you for taking this herb. If you’ve ever heard about resveratrol from red wine, take notice of its first cousin: red vine leaf. Another of grape’s great gifts can be found in the leaves of the red grape plant. Red vine leaf extract provides anthocyanins and other protective polyphenols. It has been clinically proven to relieve the pain and swelling associated with varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), problems due to poor circulation.
In one study, red vine leaf extract was found to be just as effective as compression stockings and other conventional methods of treatment. By the end of the study, red vine leaf extract reduced CVI symptoms, including lower leg volume and circumference of the leg due to swelling. Red vine leaf extract is also an excellent companion to butcher’s broom for CVI and circulatory health in general.
TODAY'S WORD From Joel and Victoria
He Laughs in the Heavens
Can you get a picture of God laughing in the heavens? Right now, God is on the throne. He's not mad. He's not worried about the economy. He's not upset with you and me. What's He doing? God is full of joy and laughing on the throne. It goes on to tell us in Psalm 37 that He's laughing because "He can see the destruction of the enemy coming." In other words, the reason God laughs is because He knows the end of the story. He knows the final outcome.
The good news is that you and I win. God always causes us to triumph Imagine you're watching the Super Bowl, but you already know the outcome. You already know who is going to win. No matter how far behind the winning team falls, no matter how bad it looks for them, you wouldn't get upset. You wouldn't be worried. Why? You've got inside information. You know the final outcome. That's what God is saying to us today. When it gets tough and things don't look like they're going to work out, we know with God, we are on the winning team! You can laugh with Him today knowing that He has favor, strength and victory for you in every area of your life!
