Do Not Confuse Turmeric Root with Curcumin!
Turmeric root supplements absoltuely do not offer the same benefits as those containing isolated curcumin. Curcumin is the most potent component of the turmeric root. Unfortunately, turmeric root contains less than 2% of curcumin making it ineffective for any health benefits. In addition over 95% of all clinical studies have been conducted using isolated curcumin and NOT with the turmeric root. Even 750mg of a 10:1 ratio extract of turmeric will deliver no more than 150mg of the active curcumin. But given the poor bioavailability (the amount of the active compound that reaches the target site or site of action) of this compound, the amount you actually get is likely far les sthan that. Clinical studies suggest that the bioavailability is less than 5%, making even standard 95% curcumin formulations fairly ineffective. As for a significantly weakened turmeric root formula? That becomes essentially useless!
Researchers recommend taking a dose of 3 to 4 g of 95% curcumin per day in order to obtain any health benefits like pain relief, inflammation reduction, or improvements to heart health or diabetes. This 3-4g dose is equivalent to taking six to eight capsules of curcumin 95%, or between twenty to thirty capsules of a high potency 750mg 10:1 ratio extract of turmeric root! Clearly taking this amount of capsules per day is unreasonable.
New Technology – Better Products!
Over the last ten years a great deal of research has been done to develop formulations that improve the bioavailability of curcumin. The goal has been to deliver more of the active molecules to the body in a much lower daily dose; as few as one to three capsules per day. There have been a number of technologies developed, but the one that has provided the most compelling evidence is nano-technology.
Active Curcumin is one such formula based on this proven technology. It has the following advantages:
Clinically tested with results published in 2010 in the prestigious Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. In the study, patients with cancer of the bone experienced significant relief of pain, inflammation, improved quality of life and well-being.
A minimum 100-fold increase in bioavailability compared to regular curcumin.
Patented by the University of California
Another study showing positive effects in Alzheimer's disease in patients is soon to be published.
Other benefits are:
One 133mg capsule is equivalent to over 13g of curcumin! This would require taking 30 capsules of regular 95% curcumin extract or more than 100 capsules of 750mg
turmeric root extract!
Curcumin Active TM consists of solid lipid particles (SLP) which are tiny nano-sized (1 billionth of a meter) particles that have a protected layer that provides a phenomenal increase in stability, potency and effectiveness. Unlike regular curcumin that is easily broken down by stomach acids, Curcumin Fast Relief particles are resistant to acid breakdown. Even more important is the fact that these tiny particles are absorbed very rapidly. This means that they deliver all of the health health benefits of curcumin, including pain relief, reduced inflammation, antioxidant properties and other effects much faster than any other curcumin product. Try Curcumin Active TM today and start feeling the benefits of a real high-potency, high-bioavailability curcumin supplement.
