What Is It?
Turmeric root, a revered East Indian spice, contains several types of curcuminoids, of which curcumin is the most potent and clinically studied. Curcumin-95 is a curcuminoid extract standardized to 95% pure curcumin.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory and has been traditionally used to support healthy joints, although large doses may be required for inflammation. It can help protect cells and prevent lipid peroxidation to cholesterol and cell membranes.
Secondary Uses: Curcumin also has antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral effects, blocks abnormal cellular growth, promotes healthy cholesterol levels and supports cardiovascular health.
Who Should Take It?
Curcumin-95 is best used by those looking for a great antioxidant in its most natural form that has not been altered by modern technologies.Free Yourself, with Free-Form Curcumin
Turmeric, Curcumin & Bioavailability – What's All The Hype About?Curcumin is well known for its anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties, which are well supported by clinical studies. These studies have shown that curcumin is highly effective for improving joint mobility and for reducing stiffness, swelling and pain. However, until recently, very high doses of curcumin (over 8 g per day) have been required to achieve these results due to weak turmeric extracts that provide only 2% curcumin, and to the poor bioavailability of curcumin. Studies suggest that you need to take more than 8g of a regular 95% curcumin extract, which is somewhere between 10 and 20 capsules, before it becomes detectable in your blood! Taking this many capsules per day just to achieve an effective dose is highly inconvenient and costly! Furthermore, many products on the market are highly misleading, and may not be effective at all! Being aware of what is actually in each product and taking advantage of the latest advances in nutraceutical technology can help to ensure that you are getting the best possible curcumin supplement, and therefore the most effective relief from pain and inflammation.Optimized Curcumin - Discover The Benefits
AOR's Optimized Curcumin products are based on proven Solid Lipid Particle™ (SLP) technology and have the following advantages:
• The only curcumin shown to be free from rapid breakdown within the body and remain in its free form within the blood stream for up to 24 hours! Other so-called bioavailable curcumins result in various metabolites in the blood that have been broken down (ie. glucuronides) and are no longer active or effective, making their improved bioavailability useless.
• Clinically tested bioavailability in human subjects, notably in diseased patients, with results published in the prestigious Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry (Gota et al., 2010).
• A 100-fold increase in bioavailability compared to regular curcumin. No other curcumin on the market has been proven to have this kind of bioavailability. Other so-called bioavailable curcumin products have maximum bioavailability improvements of 30-fold or less.
• Several recent human studies show that a low dose of 1 capsule of 80 mg Optimized Curcumin reduces blood levels of beta-amyloid and improves cognitive function and mood in healthy people in just 1 month!
• Vegan formula
Optimized Curcumin consists of Solid Lipid Particles™ (SLP). This process involves a unique combination of highly purified lipids that coat the curcumin particles, which are also significantly reduced to 1 millionth of a millimeter in size. This combination is organized in such a way as to increase bioavailability and absorption, and remarkably avoid being rapidly broken down within the body. This unique formulation allows for each solid lipid curcumin particle to be taken up through the lymph system, as opposed to being absorbed directly into the circulation and broken down by the liver, therefore avoiding “first pass metabolism” or glucuronidation. The liver is the major organ responsible for metabolizing or breaking down substances. When something is ingested, it is either glucuronidated or sulphated by the liver. This process involves adding a glucuronide or sulphate group to the substance, making it extremely soluble. It is then carried to our kidneys and bowel and is ready for excretion. When curcumin is able to avoid this rapid breakdown, it retains its activity as free form curcumin. When it cannot, it is excreted out of the body rapidly, which is unfortunately the case with all other curcumins on the market. Finally, the tiny particle size and the lipid coating allows the curcumin to be taken up into the body's cells quickly and put to use. This means that it delivers all of the health benefits of curcumin, including pain relief, reduced inflammation, antioxidant properties and other effects much faster and more effectively than any other curcumin product.
