Life Extension Curcumin Elite™ Turmeric Extract is a high strength curcumin & turmeric supplement which is absorbed 270X more than conventional curcumin supplements. Curcumin's health benefits are impressing scientists around the world with its remarkable antioxidant and cell protective properties. Curcumin is a polyphenol present in the spice turmeric and was first used by Indians over 3,000 years ago in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Modern science has found that curcumin has remarkable antioxidative, immunomodulatory, proapoptotic, hepatoprotective and antiangiogenic properties. Curcumin is also found to increase detoxifying enzymes and promote healthy DNA function.
Studies have tied inflammation to overexpression of a protein molecule called nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kappaB). NF-kappaB acts like a switch to turn on genes that produce the body's inflammatory responses. Because NF-kappaB's expression increases in ageing adults, scientists have sought ways to modulate NF-kappaB and its effects in the body.
Other clinical trials suggest roles for curcumin supplements in helping maintain healthy lipid profile, bowel, and joint functions. Curcumin tablets can also help maintain normal healthy platelet function, and have immunomodulatory effects by inhibiting histamine release from mast cells. Other studies show curcumin's potential for supporting healthy brain function and offering neuroprotection.
The benefits of turmeric root comes from compounds called curcuminoids. The "free" ones that your body can use are hard to get, even from the best turmeric extracts. Curcumin Elite™ is formulated in a way that delivers 45.5 times more bioavailable free curcuminoids (and 270 times better absorption of total curcuminoids) than standard curcumin. Because better health benefits come from better bioavailability, Curcumin Elite™ provides more health benefits for your heart, mind, joints, immune system and beyond.
