What Is It?
Curcumin Active is a high dose of fast-acting Optimized Curcumin. Optimized Curcumin was specially formulated to provide a solution to the curcumin conundrum of low bioavailability, poor absorption and rapid breakdown. Although bioavailability and absorption help determine effectiveness, the key lies within its ability to remain free. This free state of curcumin is achieved due to the formula's ability to avoid being rapidly broken down within the body. Because free curcumin retains its “unbroken” form, it is then taken up through the blood stream where it is stable, concentrated, and retains maximum effectiveness for up to 24 hours, making it the most effective, absorbable curcumin available.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: Curcumin Active works quickly to help relieve severe pain and conditions that stem from inflammation. Studies have shown curcumin is as effective as various common NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) in osteoarthritis sufferers, but much safer. Curcumin also helps reduce gastrointestinal inflammation and promotes healthy cell growth.
Secondary Uses: Curcumin is also known to be a powerful anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, skin and wound healer, liver and gallbladder support, digestive aid, cardiovascular support and much more.
Who Should Take It?
Those with severe osteoarthritis and joint pain, chronic inflammation and intestinal inflammatory disorders will highly benefit from Curcumin Active.
Take 1-2 capsules daily with/without food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
