Turmeric’s Whole Year Benefits

Remember when immunity was a seasonal concern? And you could plan for supply and demand months in advance? COVID has made immunity a year-round focus. Not only immunity but stress/anxiety management and sleep support.

Enter our old friend Turmeric. Turmeric, or more specifically its primary bioactive compound, Curcumin, is one of the most popular nutraceuticals in use today. Curcumin has a wide range of potential benefits and has been studied widely for decades.

One of Turmeric’s major benefits is it’s ability to support Stress and Anxiety Management. Researchers have tested the effectiveness of curcumin in promoting resilience to chronic social stress in mice. Curcumin prevented anxiety-like behavior in the mice, and in addition, the mice released less stress hormone (corticosterone) following acute restraint stress and had lower levels of an inflammatory compound (peripheral IL-6).

One study on Curcumin supplementation in rats suggests it can help prevent the stress-induced decrease in serotonin, helping to overcome stress-induced behavioral abnormalities. In another rat study, curcumin supplementation helped restore serotonin balance when alcohol consumption had adversely affected it.

Connect – Elite Update

At Elite we are happily, and cautiously, moving forward in our post-COVID stride, We continue to press forward with improvements to our team and facility to fulfill our vision:

“To be the premier contract manufacturer of nutritional services in the industry, exceeding quality expectations, providing outstanding customer service in every way, and providing on-time delivery of every product.”

People –
The National labor shortage has impacted us all. We continue to look for new ways to recruit and hire new team members
As a thank you to our current team for their commitment and hard work, in September we rented a local favorite Ice Cream truck and treated the entire staff to a well-deserved treat! 

Elite partnered with Missoula College to create a ToolingU Lean Manufacturing Program. Successful completion of the program means receiving 24 credits towards an associate or baccalaureate certificate. The manufacturing presence in Missoula is growing and with it the demand for frontline workers with the appropriate skills.  We feel that the existing gap in talent is the largest threat to our future growth plans. Elite is delighted to collaborate with the Missoula College to further the development of its associates in core manufacturing concepts and support further growth of the manufacturing sector in the greater Missoula area.  These skills will equip our associates with the ability to make a significant impact on our operation.  With a strong program that produces ready-to-work frontline industrial manufacturing associates, the Missoula manufacturing community should have a steady talent pipeline to satisfy production needs for years to come. 

Elite is excited to invest in our team in this new way!
