What is Curcumin taken for?

Turmeric has been used for thousands of years in traditional and natural medicine for a whole range of health complaints. Turmeric is one of the most studied herbs with literally hundreds of scientific papers written on it's effects. Confusingly, the active ingredients in turmeric are called Curcuminoids, the principal being called Curcumin. Curcumin is produced from the roots of the turmeric plant (Curcuma longa), and has nothing to do with the herb Cumin, produced from the seeds of the cumin plant (Cuminum cyminum).

In modern times curcumin and turmeric extract capsules have been extensively studied and found to have numerous benefits including anti-inflammatory properties, ease symptoms of arthritis and increase levels of antioxidants.Turmeric extract capsules can also contribute towards improved brain functions such as memory, decrease oxidisation of the blood and also help to alleviate the symptoms of depression.

Curcumin also contains beta-carotene, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), calcium, flavonoids, fibre, iron, niacin, potassium, zinc and other nutrients.

Why is inflammation damaging?

Did you know that cancer, heart disease, arthritis, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes, along with many others, are all classed as inflammatory diseases? Inflammation is the body's own defence to protect against disease, but a diet that includes sugar, cheap vegetable oils and refined carbohydrates stimulates this anti-inflammatory defence to protect against "unnatural foods".

Your GP may recommend eating a "balanced" diet but that may include bread from bleached, processed flour, cereals with little fibre and lots of sugar, tinned vegetables with added salt, sugar, colours and preservatives. A "balanced" diet such as this will keep your body's anti-inflammatory response running at full speed, trying to target and neutralise the inflammation-promoting foods.

Why Tumeric Root Extract and Black Pepper?

The human body finds it difficult to absorb turmeric extract alone. It is estimated that up to 80% of the active ingredient, Curcumin, can't be used by the body without the addition of black pepper extract. It is the black pepper extract that helps the absorption process of tumeric and allows you to reap the full benefits of curcumin.

    Pepper capsules

    Posted by Kiran on 6th Apr 2018

    I bought these for my mother who had recently been put on palliative care after 9 years of chemotherapy not helping any more. She started these capsules 10 weeks ago. Since then she has had a complete turn around of life, She has more energy, her kidney function has never been better. Most importantly her myleloma markers have reduced!!! Some of this could be attributed to stopping chemotherapy, but even the consultant was baffled to see a reduction in cancer. I would definitely recommend this product, with the support of a physician of course.
    We had tried other brands but this was the the best so far, so mum is sticking to this brand.

    Great for fighting colds.

    Posted by Vicki Mason on 3rd Dec 2017

    Didn't think these tablets were having much effect until it came to the dreaded winter cold & flu season. Both me & my husband normally get hit with a bad cold at the 1st sign of one going around, and in fact we have been surrounded by friends & colleagues that have been full of a virus but we have not gone on to develop it which is extremely unusual for us. The only thing we do differently now to any other time, is take these tablets every day. So yes we would certainly recommend this product especially to be taken during the long winter season.

    For dogs as well

    Posted by Lado Planko on 20th Nov 2017

    A poodle of mine had been prescribed cortisone for 6 years - the recommended duration being 3-4 months! As she was getting older and weaker, the cortisone side-effects started to threaten her health to the same extent as the original illness, which was Addison's (disfunction of the adrenal glands). In order to help her with the cortisone induced colitis (bowel inflammation), I reduced the cortisone (stopping it could be life-threatening) and gave her a combination of curcumin capsules, licorice solution and nigella sativa oil. With the curcumin (one capsule a day) the colitis got better and the diarrhea stopped at once - astonishing, I wouldn't dare to dream of something like that. The combination of the two substances, mentioned above, without curcumin did not show the same effect, better: did not show any effect upon colitis at all. So curcumin seems to be THE medicine against inflammation in the years to come.
