Turmeric, the golden colored strongly flavored spice, is an ancient spice is celebrated for centuries as both food and medicine, has resurfaced within the health and nutrition communities thanks to CURCUMIN the healing substance which supplies its vibrant color.
CURCUMIN has significant anti-inflammatory properties and a powerful antioxidant and has been shown to protect healthy cells, particularly those found in the colon, from cancer-causing agents. CURCUMIN aids the body in destroying mutated cancer cells before they have a chance to spread to other areas. CURCUMIN also helps to lower cholesterol and prevent heart disease.
Turmeric’s botanical name is CURCUMA LONGA, a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plant of the ginger family.The medicinal properties of turmeric, the source of CURCUMIN have been known for thousands of years ;however the ability to determine the exact mechanism(s) of action and to determine the bioactive components have only been recently investigated. CURCUMIN also called diferuloylmethane is the main natural polyphenol found in the rhizome of CURCUMA LONGA . CURCUMA LONGA has been traditionally used as a medicinal herb due to its antioxidant , anti- inflammatory, anti mutagenic, anti microbial and anti cancer properties.
CURCUMIN unfortunately is poorly absorbed by the body and cannot be utilised because of its poor bioavailability due to its rapid metabolism in the liver and the intestinal wall. Combining piperine — a known inhibitor of of hepatic and intestinal glucuronidation, helped the absorption levels of CURCUMIN to rapidly increase — ( studies exist to prove the absorption levels to even go up by as much as 2000%).
THE BIOTEX CURCUMIN+ has a 10 mg of piperine extract ( black pepper fruit extract) with every 500 mg of CURCUMIN – 500 mg to ensure a high level of bioavailability by which all the desired effects of CURCUMIN are derived to the full.
