Curcumin

It can pose a challenge to achieve the ideal biochemical balance through diet alone, especially when it comes to chemicals such as curcumin which has naturally low bioavailability. This is where adding a supplement can be of value to maximise the health benefits that curcumin has to offer.

Curcumin Supplements

What is Curcumin?

Curcumin is the main ingredient in turmeric which gives the spice its yellow colour. Turmeric is considered to be one of the most effective nutritional sources, and it has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal herb. Studies are now demonstrating that it offers many benefits for the human body.

What are the benefits of Curcumin?

Studies have shown that curcumin has a positive effect on destroying malignant cancer cells and slowing liver disease.

Research suggests (Everyday Health & Healthline) that Curcumin may also:

  • Aid digestion;
  • Act as an anti-inflammatory;
  • Is a very strong antioxidant, neutralising free radicals;
  • Increase the efficacy of the body's natural antioxidants;
  • Increase the number of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (growth hormone in the brain).

Curcumin as an anti-inflammatory

Fighting inflammation is one of the most common remedies that curcumin is used for. It may, in fact, be a more effective anti-inflammatory than standard medications such as ibuprofen. Chronic inflammation is a feature of many chronic diseases, and so curcumin may be beneficial in treating symptoms of pancreatitis, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, heart disease, cancers, metabolic disease, Alzheimer's and other degenerative conditions.

Who can take Curcumin?

Curcumin has been taken for thousands of years in various forms, such as curcumin extract, tablets or capsules, by those seeking antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal effects. Though it is commonly found in the spice turmeric, curcumin does not absorb well into the bloodstream. Therefore, taking a curcumin supplement is recommended in order to achieve the amounts found to offer health benefits in research studies.
