Curcumin is a curcuminoid naturally occurring in the turmeric plant which, according to scientific investigations and positive feedback of innumerable users, possesses a variety of health benefits. The turmeric plant has been used in the realm of traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda for over 2,500 years (some sources even say 5000 years) due to its beneficial health effects. Even though modern science has been intensively studying the numerous medicinal properties of the turmeric plant and its primary active ingredient curcumin for about 50 years, curcumin supplements started to enjoy popularity in the Western world just a few years ago. If you look at the wide range of curcumins health benefits, ranging from a strong antioxidant effect, relief from digestion problems by promoting a healthy digestion, improving the function of the immune system, anti-inflammatory effects to anti-cancer effects, it becomes clear that every health-conscious person can benefit from a curcumin supplementation.
The dried and powdered root stem of the turmeric plant contains only 2 to 8% of the active ingredients, referred to as curcuminoids, which also include curcumin. Many of the curcumin products available on the market are made from pure turmeric root powder and their curcumin concentration is so low that you can not expect to experience any health benefits. If you think about buying products that contain turmeric extracts with a higher curcumin content, you should pay close attention to curcumin content these products are standardized for. Many manufacturers use turmeric extracts with a relatively low curcumin content, since these are much cheaper. If you know GN Laboratories, you will also know that we never skimp on the raw materials for our products - and this is also true with GN Laboratories Curcumin Plus. We use only the highest quality 50:1 turmeric extract standardized for 95% curcuminoids. You will not find a higher curcumin concentration in any other product!
Most of the curcumin you ingest is destroyed by the liver during the so called first pass. This means that only a small fraction of the total amount of curcumin you take will reach your body undamaged. Well, we would not be GN Laboratories if we had not found a solution for this problem. Scientific studies have shown that piperine, a substance contained in black pepper, is able to effectively prevent the breakdown of curcumin in your liver. The effects of piperine are so strong that the bioavailability of curcumin can be increased by 2000% (no, this is not a typo!!) when it is taken in combination with piperine. And as you probably have already guessed, GN Laboratories Curcumin Plus contains an effective dose of highly concentrated piperine extract for this reason.
The health benefits of curcumin are so diverse that we can only scratch the surface and describe the most important and interesting ones. A detailed description of all the positive qualities of curcumin could easily fill an entire book.
Curcumin has pronounced anti-inflammatory effects which are based, among other things, on a reduction of the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and prostaglandins and an inhibition of the enzymes cyclooxygenase-2, lipoxygenase and NO synthase (2). In addition, curcumin blocks a protein that is responsible for pain. These anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties of curcumin can help to alleviate joint pain and arthritis when taken regularly (3).
Curcumin stimulates your gastric juice production and the production and distribution of bile acid. This increased secretion of bile acid promotes fat digestion and increases the pH value in the intestines, which promotes a better and more active digestion. This can relieve symptoms of digestive problems such as bloating, constipation and other problems after eating fatty foods.
A whole series of scientific studies has shown that curcumin can help to protect your body against the development of cancer, as well as to fight cancer (4). Curcumin strengthens your cell membranes and makes them less susceptible to pathogens and carcinogens. In addition, curcumin actively inhibits the growth of tumors and the development of metastases by inhibiting the cell division of cancer cells.
Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant that can protect the cells of your body from harmful effects of free radicals (2). In addition, these unique antioxidant properties contribute to the previously described alleviation of joint pain and the anti-cancer effect of curcumin.
Curcumin inhibits the development of osteoclasts, which are responsible for a breakdown of bone substance. Scientific studies have shown, that curcumin is able to reduce bone loss and a decrease in bone density. (5)
Curcumin can lower high blood sugar levels and significantly reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes in people suffering from insulin resistance. A study conducted with insulin-resistant, prediabetic subjects showed that curcumin was able to improve insulin sensitivity and effectively prevented the development of diabetes (6). This effect is based on curcumins ability to stimulate the pancreatic beta cells, which are responsible for the production of insulin.
Scentific investigations have shown that curcumin can reduce the increase in cholesterol levels after a fatty meal by up to 20%. In addition to this, a seven-day supplementation with curcumin was sufficient to significantly reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels in subjects (7).
For people taking liver toxic medicine and athletes who use performance-enhancing substances that are harsh to the liver, it may be interesting to hear that curcumin can effectively protect their liver from harmful effects of alcohol and medicine. These effects are so pronounced that curcumin can even alleviate hepatitis caused by an overdose of paracetamol and prevent the death of liver cells (8).
As you can see, the health benefits of curcumin are more than overwhelming - and the above list is just a brief overview of some of the most interesting health benefits. Since curcumin is generally well-tolerated, it is not likely to cause unwanted side effects. You can only win if you supplement with GN Laboratories Curcumin Plus on a regular basis.
