Today, after a short break, I have reintroduced Curcumin to my daily compliment of natural health products, which, I understand, will reinforce the continued positive impact of SerraPlus+ (Serrapeptase). I hope that Curcumin will provide another element of support for my digestive system, circulation and joints.
Curcumin stimulates the production of Glutathione and may assist with eye problems and has been identified in pharmacology and professional journals as being anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiviral, anti fungal and much more. Curcumin is the substance that gives Turmeric, found as a typical kitchen spice, its yellowish colour. Curcumin is the main biologically active part of Turmeric, which only contains 4% Curcumin, whereas Curcumin contains 95%. Over 500 references to articles on Turmeric and Curcumin have been published and peer reviewed. Turmeric has long been revered as the foundation of an herbal program for health. In India’s system of Ayurvedic medicine, it has been recognised for thousands of years as a key balancing and detoxifying herb and is considered one of the very best all-round herbs for general well-being. Benefits:
- Cell Division
- Brain Ageing
- Blood Flow
- Immune System
- Digestive Tract
- Joint Support
No side effects have been found taking high doses of Curcumin; rare cases of stomach upset or diarrhoea may be resolved by temporarily reducing the dosage and taking with food.
In October 2010, working with Indena S.p.A., the worldwide experts in botanical extract technology, Good Health Naturally, introduced Curcumin, which includes an answer to better Curcumin absorption – phytosome technology.
Phytosomes are plant extracts bound to phosphatidylcholine (fos-fa-tidal-ko-leen), which is an essential component of human cells. Our bodies make phosphatidylcholine, but we can also get it from food and supplements. When taken orally, phosphatidylcholine is very well absorbed. To improve absorption, scientists at Indena found a way to attach Curcumin to phosphatidylcholine – the result is Curcumin! When you take Curcumin your body readily absorbs the phosphatidylcholine and the Curcumin attached to it, resulting in more Curcumin reaching the cells that can benefit from it.
