Health benefits of curcumin
Curcumin – one compound, many health applications
Curcumin has been studied and shown effective for a variety of health problems. Curcumin is the main active ingredient of turmeric, plants grown mainly in India and Sri Lanka. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. Curcumin works on multiple pathways in the body, simultaneously, which accounts for its ability to slow, stop, or prevent many different disease conditions.
Traditional medicine and modern research show that this amazing compound has the potential to prevent or cure an astounding range of illnesses. Curcumin with enhanced absorption is a natural way to treat diseases with an ingredient that is as potent – or even more so – as prescription drugs, but without potentially adverse side effects.
One of the reasons that curcumin works so well on such a wide range of diseases is because it has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Almost all chronic diseases – from diabetes through heart diseases and arthritis to Alzheimer’s disease – have something in common: uncontrolled, destructive inflammation. Unlike synthetic drugs, which typically work against only a single inflammation pathway, natural curcumin reduces inflammation through its effects on multiple inflammation targets at the same time.
Novel bio available Curcumin formulation
The major impediment towards to the use of Curcumin for health benefits is its poor availability in the blood and tissues. This problem can be trounced by our innovative preparation containing curcumin obtained from the turmeric rhizome, in which curcumin is a part of the full natural turmeric matrix , therefore is more available in blood.
Curcumin is a safe, effective and potential compound, finds its
application as an ingredient in food and medicines. In order to be effective as a medicine, it has to be more bio-available than usual forms. Even though the concentration in the composition is increased, it cannot be absorbed by the body. However, some formulations can.
Curcumin has been found to have potential benefits in treatment and prevention of several diseases.
Nevertheless, the low bioavailability makes a barrier for its use.
The bioavailability of CureIt, the novel bioavailable Curcumin formulation, compared with that of normal Curcumin, is found to be more than 10 fold more bio available than the normal Curcumin. And that´s why CureIt is so effective, why he has such great health benefits and why he is so popular with his users.
Curcuminoids are very effective at scavenging free radicals and neutralizing them. Turmeric is also believed to have capability of preventing development of free radicals. Thus it drastically reduces the risk of diseases and cell damage caused by free radicals.
It has been proved that curcumin with its strongly anti- inflammatory properties is so powerful that it matches the effectiveness of some anti-inflammatory drugs. Curcumin has been shown to influence the activity and the synthesis of enzymes that have been involved in the inflammation.
Curcumin possesses antioxidant, anti- inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal activities regarding its effect on skin health. Curcumin has been used to treat problematic skin conditions – heal and regenerate various types of skin wounds.
Curcumin nourishes and protects the brain in a variety of ways. It’s a potent antioxidant that readily crosses the blood-brain barrier to protect brain cells from free radical damage. Curcumin can increase the levels of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), a protein that stimulates the creation of new brain cells.
Turmeric helps control hyper nerves and soothes them down. It is also now proved that turmeric is a good antispasmodic. Turmeric is also known as an anti-ischemic agent. Thus, taking turmeric helps in regulating blood supply to peripheral nerves, which leads to their proper function.
Curcumin is believed to work by increasing two key neurotransmitters linked to depression, serotonin and dopamine. As a bioactive compound in turmeric, it can treat depression, anxiety, brain aging and more. Another way curcumin impacts depression is by reducing brain inflammation.
Curcumin improves the function of the endothelium, which is the lining of the blood vessels. It is well known that endothelial dysfunction is a major driver of heart disease and involves an inability of the endothelium to regulate blood pressure, blood clotting and various other factors.
Turmeric’s anti-inflammatory properties have a positive impact on joint and bone health. Certain types of joint pain are known to be caused by inflammation in the joint tissue. Turmeric has been used effectively for treatment of all types of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and for joint pain.
Curcumin offers an important adjuvant role in improving blocked airways caused by bronchitis. Turmeric helps to dilate the blood vessels that allows for better air flow, restores normal breathing patterns, relaxes the muscle spasms, thins the blood and gives relief from the asthmatic inflammation.
Turmeric helps by increasing gastric wall mucus which acts as a protective layer, so that our stomach withstands better digestive acids. Curcumin supports digestion, helps to release bile, increases absorption in intestine, promotes intestinal flora and also calms upper digestive system by getting rid of gas.
Curcumin helps protect liver from damage and supports regeneration of affected liver cells. It also supports enzymes to flush out known dietary carcinogens, leading to enhanced protection of liver. Curcumin improves the health of the gallbladder and helps to remove cholesterol from liver.
