Curcumin has been used in Ayurvedic, Western Herbal and Traditional Chinese medicines for centuries as a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.
Curcumin is the principal curcuminoid or ACTIVE COMPOUND in Turmeric root. Turmeric root is a member of the rhizome or ginger family.
It helps relieve pain and inflammation associated with joint conditions such as osteoarthritis but also helps support gastrointestinal and musculoskeletal inflammatory conditions. Turmeric counteracts free radicals in two ways: prevention of free radical formation; and quenching of preformed radicals.
Curcumin is recognized as GRAS (generally recognized as safe) by The United States Food and Drug Administration and there is no set limit for dosage. Therefore, it can be taken for long term at a recommend dosage. On its own Curcumin has poor bioavailability –it is not water soluble and needs fats and/or pepper extracts to increase the bioavailability or uptake by the body. Bioglan CurcuFlex however, contains a specific ingredient, BioperineTM, that helps enhance curcumin’s absorption up to 20 times!
