10 Things You May Not Know About Curcumin

You may not know this, but those innocent spice jars in your cupboard have a rich and incredible history. The spice trade was once the world’s biggest industry and helped lay the foundation for the modern world.

Not only did it lead to the discovery of new continents and trade routes, but the rise and fall of nations were closely tied to these spices, as they were valued as highly as gold and silver.

For thousands of years, only a select handful of goods were transported great distances across the world in trade – among the most valued spices were cinnamon, pepper, clove, nutmeg, and turmeric.

Spices were valued for their ability to flavor foods and because they had several medicinal {other, health-boosting} properties, too. Today, they are scientifically known as anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, but back then, people just knew they were good for you.

One of the most valuable spices is turmeric. Its value lies in the curcuminoids contained within it. Many consider turmeric a ‘super spice’ because it is highly antioxidant and has powerful anti-inflammatory properties.

Used in ancient Ayurvedic traditions to beautify the skin, improve digestive health, and even treat cuts and burns, many people don’t know that turmeric has been shown in research to help with diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and much more.

India produces nearly all of the world’s turmeric and consumes 80% of it, and statistics from the Indian subcontinent consistently show lower rates of Alzheimer’s than many other countries, which is believed to be linked to their increased consumption of turmeric.

Here are ten more reasons why this plant is such a miracle:

  1. Curcumin helps with weight loss. Studies have shown that curcumin intake among patients with metabolic syndrome and related disorders was correlated with a significant reduction in BMI, weight, waist circumference, and leptin, and a significant increase in adiponectin levels (a hormone that helps maintain blood sugar), but did not affect heart rate(2).
  2. Curcumin helps against aging. Everyone wants to live as healthy as possible, and it turns out that curcumin may help you do just that! Oxidative stress is one of the most important causes of aging and age-related diseases, and many age-related disorders such as cancer, neuro-inflammation, and infections are due to a low-grade chronic systemic inflammation. Curcumin, a powerful antioxidant and polyphenolic compound isolated from the Curcuma longa, has been shown to exert anti-aging characteristics.(3)(4)

     

  3. Curcumin may help fight depression. There is growing interest in the use of curcumin, a plant polyphenol with potent anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and neuroprotective properties, in the field of mental health. In fact, research shows that antidepressant effects have been demonstrated in both animal and human trials and have been confirmed by several different studies.(5)(6)

     

  4. Curcumin is good for your heart. Heart disease has killed more people than any other disease and has been the #1 killer for more than 50 years running. Turmeric contains substances such as curcumin that have positive effects on heart function and atherosclerosis(7). That’s why it makes sense to add curcumin to your daily routine!
  5. Curcumin is good for your liver. When it comes to detoxing the body, your liver is a key organ that needs to be cleaned. Research suggests that curcumin/turmeric might have a favorable effect on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in higher doses of 500mg or more(8), and curcumin supplementation has been shown to exert a favorable effect on liver ultrasonographic findings, reduced serum liver enzymes, total cholesterol, and BMI in participants with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease(9).
  6. Curcumin helps protect against Alzheimer’s and other neurological diseases. Alzheimer’s disease occurs because certain proteins (particularly tau proteins) and amyloid plaque build up in the brain. A study conducted at UCLA found that curcumin may help macrophages (which play an important role in the immune system) to clear the amyloid plaques found in Alzheimer’s disease.(10) Epidemiological studies have shown that prevalence of AD is lower amongst Indian-Asians as compared to people of western origin.(10)

In short, turmeric and curcumin are great for your brain(11) and especially for memory!(12)

  1. Curcumin may alleviate symptoms of arthritis and improve joint health. (rheumatism and osteoarthritis). Turmeric has been used in Asia for centuries as a pain reliever, but now science is backing up centuries old wisdom. In a study to determine whether supplementation with turmeric or curcumin extract affects pain and physical function in individuals with knee osteoarthritis (OA), eleven randomized controlled trials with a total of 1258 participants with primary knee OA were reviewed and meta-analyzed. What the researchers discovered was incredible: Both low- and high-dose curcuminoids have similar pain relief effects and adverse events in knee OA, and curcuminoids are associated with better pain relief than non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs.(13) If you’re looking for an effective yet harmless pain reliever, curcumin is a good option.
  2. Curcumin lowers LDL-C cholesterol. Turmeric works wonders for your blood. In fact, according to research, taking curcumin leads to a significant improvement in cholesterol profiles and is shown to significantly reduce serum LDL-C and triglycerides(14).
  3. Curcumin promotes good digestion by improving gut health(15). Research suggests that with its unique anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory activities and ability to modulate gut microbiota, curcumin is a potentially useful agent for IBS(16) without adverse side effects. If you have gut issues, you may want to give curcumin a try!
  4. Curcumin supports healthy DNA. Our DNA naturally gets damaged every day, which contributes to the aging process. While it’s generally unavoidable, there are ways to support healthy, natural aging. In research, turmeric, ginger, and rosemary were found to be powerful and quality superfoods for supporting healthy DNA and cells(17).

As you can clearly see, curcumin has a long history of use(18) and a ton of incredible health benefits. But the problem is that it is not easily absorbed by the body. This means that even if you eat turmeric and the curcuminoids in it every day, most of the curcuminoids are flushed from your body before they can work their magic.

But now there’s a better way.

What is it?

It’s called CPRO® BioSoluble® Curcumin™, and it’s a revolutionary delivery system that enables curcumin to be absorbed by your body before it is flushed out.

Here’s how it works.

The team of researchers behind CPRO® BioSoluble® Curcumin™, devised a brilliant way to wrap curcumin in a protein or low-glycemic sugar molecule, which enables it to be delivered to the bloodstream before it passes out of your system. This allows your body to take full advantage of curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties.

This revolutionary delivery system is like putting a letter in an envelope and sending it in the mail for safe delivery. It will only be opened when it reaches its destination safely.

If you’re looking for a powerful way to take advantage of all of the benefits that curcumin provides and give your body the support it needs, then CPRO® BioSoluble® Curcumin™ is exactly what you’re looking for.

The ancient Hindus were masters of discipline, strength, and stamina. For thousands of years they have been at the forefront of many cutting edge tools that we still use to this day, and curcumin is one of the most powerful of those tools. And now, thanks to the research team, it has the cutting edge delivery system it needs that enables your body to take full advantage of its powerful anti-inflammatory properties.
