How Does the Active Ingredient Function in This Product?
Curcumin (Turmeric concentrate)Supports antioxidant status and promotes a healthy inflammatory response*
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a bright yellow spice and a traditional remedy that has been used as a medicine, condiment, and flavoring since 600 BC. The rhizome (underground stem) is the part of the plant that is harvested and ground to make the spice. The key bioactive constituents found in turmeric are three kinds of curcuminoids: curcumin, demethoxyl-curcumin, and bisdemethoxyl-curcumin. All three components are structurally similar, although curcumin seems to be the most effective constituent. Curcumin and these related curcuminoids appear to affect human health through antioxidant activity and possible modulation of 5-lipo-oxygenase (LOX) and cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes.
Antioxidant & Detoxification
Curcuminoids (or hereinafter referred to as curcumin) also exhibit strong antioxidant activity to help protect against cellular oxidation, and help maintain cellular integrity.* Curcumin also supports the body’s natural antioxidant glutathione levels, which, in turn, aids the liver in detoxification. Turmeric also has been found to have hepatoprotective (i.e., liver-protective) properties.*
In research on people with suboptimal joint function, curcumin supplement was found to be useful for promoting a healthy inflammatory response while promoting comfort and flexibility.* In a double-blind study, curcumin was found to be superior to a placebo or other study compounds supporting a healthy post-surgical inflammatory response.*
Other Health Benefits
Constituents of turmeric exert several protective effects on the gastrointestinal tract, most likely via its antioxidant activity. A doubleblind trial found turmeric helpful in supporting healthy digestion and effective in animal research in promoting healthy digestive function.*
Via its antioxidant activity, turmeric curcumin may help promote cardiovascular health, especially by decreasing the propensity of low density lipoprotein (LDL) to oxidize. Research continues to suggest that healthy cholesterol levels support cardiovascular health.*
