Doctor's Best High Absorption Curcumin 500mg 120 Caps
About Vitamins.co.nz Doctor's Best High Absorption Curcumin 500mg
High Absorption Curcumin contains a standardized extract of curcuma longa root, commonly known as ‘turmeric’. Turmeric is the yellow spice that flavours curried dishes, but is valued beyond culinary uses. It has been employed in the Ayurvedic healing tradition for centuries. The active ingredients in curcuma longa are plant substances called curcuminoids. Collectively known as ‘curcumin’ they’ve demonstrated potent antioxidant properties in scientific studies. Curcuminoids benefit joints and other tissues by helping to neutralise free-radicals.
High Absorption Curcumin supplies 95% total curcuminoids, including curcumin, bisdemethoxy curcumin and demethoxy curcumin. BioPerine is an extract of black pepper fruit that contains 95-98% piperine. BioPerine is added as a natural bioenhancer to promote absorption of the product.
- Potent antioxidant protection for cellular health
- Protects cells and tissues by fighting free radicals
- Promotes Healthy Ageing
- Enhances Normal Detoxification
- Supports Joint Structure and Function
- Supports Healthy Brain Ageing and Activity
The numerous beneficial effects attributed to turmeric often stem from the antioxidant properties of the curcuminoids within it. This antioxidant activity can neutralise highly unstable molecules, or free radicals, that damage cellular structures through oxidative stress.
Joint structure and function
Several in vitro investigations point to the ability of curcuminoids to help regulate immune mediators involved in promoting normal joint function and to promote a balanced immune response in joint tissue. In vivo results from animal studies endorse this potential action of curcumin.
Healthy brain ageing
A 2005 study has investigated the ability and potential of curcuminoids to support healthy brain aging and maintenance of cognitive function. A large number of both in vitro and in vivo (animal) studies confirm the ability of curcumin to enhance neuron integrity, chiefly through the free radical scavenging abilities of this compound. When animals were administered compounds with known brain toxicity, subsequent administration of curcumin led to a significantly more balanced neurological outcome when compared to control animals.
