Curcumin is derived from turmeric. Turmeric is one of the earliest recorded medicinal plants. The turmeric spice extract has been studied for over 250 years and used for thousands of millennia in Ayurvedic medicine. Curcumin is the health-promoting chemical compound in turmeric responsible for giving the spice its deep, golden, yellow colour.
It’s important to note that turmeric is not curcumin. Curcumin that is isolated from the turmeric spice as a phytochemical (belonging to a class of compounds known as curcuminoids) is thousands of times more powerful.
Historically, turmeric has been used to heal conditions like wounds, sprains, coughs, colds, burns, and arthritis. Today, curcumin works as a powerful antihistamine, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antifungal, antiviral, anti-mutagenic, anti-diabetic, and even antidepressant compound with a remarkable Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) score of up to 1,500,000. Curcuminoids also boost levels of our body’s most potent antioxidants: glutathione, superoxide dismutase, and catalase.
Curcuminx4000® includes the high-quality, bioavailable Meriva® Curcumin, which studies show can absorb up to 45x more effectively than alternative curcumin products.
Supports the Body's Normal Inflammatory Response
Curcumin acts as an inhibitor of the COX-2 enzyme which is responsible for pain and inflammation. Studies show it can also improve oxidative stress and reduce free radical damage.
Research suggests curcumin can help with the management of oxidative and inflammatory conditions, including metabolic syndrome, arthritis, anxiety, and hyperlipidemia. It may also help alleviate exercise-induced inflammation and muscle soreness, improving recovery and performance in active people.
Now CurcuminX4000® can provide health benefits for a wide range of health conditions, with a lower dose, due to its high bioavailability and superior levels of absorption.
