Curcumin is found in the spice turmeric and was first used by Indians over 3,000 years ago in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Modern science has found that curcumin has remarkable health benefits for nearly every organ system in the body including its ability to inhibit enzymes that help produce inflammation in the body. Studies have tied inflammation to overexpression of a protein molecule called nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kappaB). Curcumin has been shown to exert powerful inhibitory effects on NF-kappaB activation within the body. In addition, curcumin inhibits the metabolism of arachidonic acid, as well as activities of cyclooxygenase, lipoxygenase, and cytokines (interleukins and tumor necrosis factor). Other clinical trials suggest roles for curcumin in helping maintain healthy joint functions as well as supporting healthy brain function and offering neuroprotection.The problem is that curcumin is poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. Super Bio-Curcumin® absorbs up to seven times better than conventional curcumin. So this patented formula represents the most cost-effective way to supplement with this critical nutrient. Studies show that one 400 mg capsule a day of this turmeric compound can provide curcumin blood levels equal to ingesting 2,500–2,800 mg of commercial curcumin supplements. And not only does this turmeric formulation provide far greater peak blood levels, but the curcumin remains in the bloodstream almost twice as long as conventional supplements. Each 400 mg capsule of Super Bio-Curcumin® is equivalent to 2,772 mg of a typical 95% curcumin extract.
Recommended use: one capsule a day
