Each tablet contains 500mg of standardised Curcumin C3 Complex®.
Curcumin is the most medicinally active part of the spice turmeric. Typically, curcumin is not well absorbed. Therefore, the patented black pepper extract, BioPerine®, is added to greatly enhance the absorption of the curcumin.
Curcumin Megasorb contains Curcumin C3 Complex®, a patented curcumin complex with a unique composition ratio, providing curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin, that are collectively known as curcuminoids.
The Curcumin C3 Complex® in Curcumin Megasorb is a very high quality, consistent, safe and efficacious form of curcumin that has been used extensively in a variety of research initiatives and institutions. Studies continue to show the power of curcumin to help support the inflammatory processes and pathways within the body.
Curcumin has the ability to control inflammation in the body, across multiple pathways, all at the same time. It is known to help reduce pain, inflammation and stiffness. It may also help to protect and maintain the health of joints and bones, and their flexibility.
Nuclear Factor k-B (NF-kB) is the master regulator of inflammation in the body. When it is activated, COX-2 (Cyclooxygenase-2), an enzyme responsible for inflammation and pain, is turned on which leads to inflammation. Curcuminoids have been shown to be an inhibitor of NF-kB and therefore COX-2.
Conventional non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications can be harsh on the stomach lining. In contrast, curcumin is gentle on the stomach and suitable for sensitive individuals.
Curcumin has also been shown to be a potent free-radical quencher, and may also prevent the formation of free radicals. The curcuminoids have been shown to help support a healthy immune system.
Why are standardised extracts important?
Standardised extracts are a guarantee that the potency and amount of active compounds are the same as those advertised on the label. This is particularly important when choosing a botanical supplement.
Curcumin Megasorb is non-GMO, gluten, wheat and dairy free.
