Curcumin is the active compound in turmeric, a bright yellow ancient spice, and a traditional remedy that has been used for health, as well as for condiment and flavouring, based on records dating back to more than 2000 years.
The herbal compound Curcumin has a mechanism of action as a natural COX-2 inhibitor (COX-2 is an inflammatory enzyme). Inhibitors of this type have shown to have the capability to help relieve common everyday inflammations triggered by a host of lifestyle factors.
Curcumin also has well-established properties that compare to supplemental vitamins C and E, in their own abilities to antioxidise against free radicals.
Research suggests that these two important properties in Curcumin, used as a regular dietary addition, may help to support a healthy digestive system, particular liver health, the gallbladder, anti-inflammatory processes, and eye health.
Each capsule of CurcuminX4000™ contains 200mg of highly effective Curcumin Phytosome, which in a recent study showed an increase in utilization up to 20-45X compared to ordinary Curcumin 95%.
Curcumin (from Turmeric) has been used in the diet for thousands of years for its antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory & anti-fungal properties. However, due to its inherent poor absorbency, high doses of ordinary Curcumin 95% have been needed to achieve the dramatic effects show in worldwide studies.
Now CurcuminX4000™ has a unique high utilization formulation to avoid the need for high doses.
What is Meriva® (root) Curcuma Longa extract?
Curcumin, a substance in turmeric, is a compound that has been isolated from the curry spice turmeric. The root of turmeric has long been used in traditional Asian medicine. Reports suggest it may be worth investigating for important anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and perhaps even anticancer properties, and this research continues.*
Preliminary studies have found that antioxidants, such as those produced by dietary Curcumin, may contribute towards the inhibition of the formation of amyloid plaque, a major cause of dementia. Research in this area is ongoing and positive. *
When ingested, Curcumin, as a natural nutrient, itself interacts with various biochemicals in the body. Curcumin's molecular structure is what makes it so beneficial to the human body, but also is the same reason why it is difficult to be absorbed into the bloodstream. Whether taken as a supplement or from food, regular curcumin is generally poorly absorbed.
Working with Indena S.p.A., the worldwide experts in botanical extract technology, we have found the answer to better curcumin absorption – Phytosome Technology. The scientists found a way to attach curcumin to phosphatidylcholine. The result is Meriva Curcumin Phytosome, a well-absorbed curcumin extract. Meriva® is a highly bioavailable curcumin and a breakthrough in its absorption.
