Curcumin is the active ingredient of the curry spice Turmeric, ground from the root of the plant called Curcuma Longa. Curcumin is believed to be one of natures' most powerful antioxidant with many health benefits. Asian culture use to believe it has important natural anti-inflammatory qualities and can act as a bacteria-killer in the stomach. Studies show Curcumin may help regulate chemical messengers that cause inflammation in the body, but its beneficial properties highly depend on its bioavailability. Among the occurring bioactive components of turmeric, the curcuminoids Curcumin and its derivatives Demethoxycurcumin and Bisdemethoxycurcumin have shown the strongest biological activity against oxidation (acting as natural potent radical scavengers). Tests in vitro showed that Curcumin and then Demethoxycurcumin have the strongest activity with a wide spectrum of biological actions including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and also anticarcinogenic and antimutagenic activities (though exciting research is still ongoing, extremely promising clinical results have highlighted the cancer-fighting properties of curcumin).HealthAid Curcumin 3 is standardised in its purest and concentrated form providing 95% of active curcuminoids especially its three main chemical coumpounds - Curcumin, Demethoxycurcumin, Bisdemethoxycurcumin - combined with the highest quality of Piperine extract. Piperine, the active ingredient in black pepper enhances the serum concentration and bioavailability of curcumin by inhibiting hepatic & intestinal glucuronidation, the main detoxification pathways in the body. Therefore, the curcumin is not destroyed by the digestive enzymes and can be absorbed into the blood system; and penetrates easily the brain for maximum effect.
