What is curcumin?
Curcumin is an extract of turmeric. It has been used as an anti-inflammatory herbal medicine for thousands of years. Turmeric, a popular flavouring for curries and spiced dishes, has been quietly fighting infection and disease for centuries among Asian populations, in which rates of colon and prostate cancer are generally low. A powerful antioxidant, curcumin helps the body fight invading bacteria and viruses and reduces the negative effects of potentially damaging reactions like chronic inflammation. Curcumin boosts the body's ability to fight and inhibit serious diseases such as Alzheimer's, cancer, Crohn's and arthritis.
How does Curcumin SR Slow Release work?
Curcumin in the diet can't generally have a beneficial effect unless turmeric is consumed in large quantities on a daily basis. This is because the curcumin molecule is 'hydrophobic', meaning it repels water molecules, making it difficult to transport into the bloodstream. In other words, it has low 'bioavailability'. The low bioavailability of curcumin is well known. Some supplements use piperine to improve bioavailability. However, piperine is known to interfere with the activity of medications and is potentially toxic. Curcumin SR Slow Release contains cyclodextrin, which forms a hydrophilic (literally 'water-loving') shell around curcumin, facilitating swift absorption without the need for piperine.
8 hour standard release
30 capsules - Dietary Supplement
Curcumin, derived from turmeric, is one of the most promising ingredients for promoting a healthy inflammation response. Unfortunately, curcumin is poorly absorbed and rapidly excreted, so until now, it has had to be taken in large doses continually to achieve an effect.
CurcuminSR overcomes these problems with an 8-hour sustained release formula.
