Curcumin Health Benefits
Joint, digestive, cognitive, and cardiovascular health
Curcumin is nature's most potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound. It enhances cellular resistance to oxidative damage and protection against DNA damage, 2 of the key factors involved in aging and stress-related toxicity*. It also increases glutathione S-transferase and cytochrome P450 activity in the liver, which further aids in response to environmental and metabolic stressors. Thousands of studies have been published demonstrating curcumin's nerve, liver, joint, GI, and cardiovascular protective properties*. For example, in multiple clinical studies curcumin has demonstrated improved joint function and activity in osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis patients*.
Curcumin is a polyphenolic compound derived from the plant Curcuma Longa, commonly known as turmeric. Curcumin has been used for centuries as both a food preservative and to treat a wide variety of ailments in Ayurvedic medicine. Modern in vitro and in vivo studies have confirmed curcumin to be a multitherapeutic agent with a range of beneficial biological consequences including; anti-carcinogenic, anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory effects.
Unfortunately, free curcumin has extremely low bioavailability in the body due to low intrinsic activity, poor absorption, rapid metabolism and rapid elimination from the body (1). This low bioavailability necessitates the use of extremely high doses (15 grams or more, per person) in order to obtain effective health benefits, or observe peripheral blood levels of curcumin.
Numerous approaches to increase curcumin bioavailability have been explored, including the use of absorption factors (such as piperine), liposomes, nanoparticles or a structural analog, however, none has yet been shown to fully solve the curcumin bioavailability conundrum. (2)
