Curcumin 500mg 120 capsules - turmeric extract | Jarrow Formulas
Jarrow Formulas Curcumin 95 is an 18:1 concentrate of the antioxidants found in the spice turmeric root. Curcumin 95 contains 95% curcuminoids (including curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin), which are antioxidants. Specifically, curcumin and its derivatives protect DNA against oxidative damage induced by reactive oxygen species.
Curcumin also slows down growth of fat cells and stimulates fat burning.
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a bright yellow spice and a traditional remedy that has been used as a medicine, condiment, and flavoring since 600 BC. The rhizome (underground stem) is the part of the plant that is harvested and ground to make the spice. The key bioactive constituents found in turmeric are three kinds of curcuminoids: curcumin, demethoxyl-curcumin, and bisdemethoxyl-curcumin. All three components are structurally similar, although curcumin seems to be the most effective constituent. Curcumin and these related curcuminoids appear to effect human health through antioxidant activity and possible modulation of 5-lipo-oxygenase (LOX) and cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes.
Antioxidant & Detoxification
Curcuminoids (or hereinafter referred to as curcumin) also exhibit strong antioxidant activity, enhance cellular resistance to oxidative damage, and provide antioxidant protection against DNA damage.
Curcumin also enhances the body’s natural antioxidant glutathione levels, which, in turn, aids the liver in detoxification. Turmeric also has been found to have hepatoprotective (i.e., liver-protective) properties against a variety of liver-toxic chemicals.
In research on people with suboptimal joint function, curcumin was found to be useful for promoting a healthy inflammatory response while promoting comfort and flexibility. In a double-blind study, curcumin was found to be superior to a placebo or other study compounds supporting a healthy post-surgical inflammatory response.
Other Health Effects
Constituents of turmeric exert several protective effects on the gastrointestinal tract, most likely via its antioxidant activity. A double-blind trial found turmeric helpful for people with indigestion and effective in animal research in promoting healthy digestive function.
Via its antioxidant activity, curcumin may help promote cardiovascular health, especially by decreasing the propensity of low density lipoprotein (LDL) to oxidize. Research continues to suggest that oxidized LDL is one of the more pernicious forms of cholesterol in relation to cardiovascular health.

Why do we get the flu in winter?Being cold doesn’t literally make you catch a cold, but it certainly seems likely how the coldest season is, as a matter of fact, the 'cold' season. Why is there a substantial increase in common colds and flus as soon as it gets cold outside?
The flu really does thrive in winterThere’s no doubt that the flu virus somehow thrives in the cold.
As it turns out, the virus is basically designed to jump from person to person when the air is cold and dry. Studies have shown that transmission rates are highest when temperature and humidity are both low. Because cold air naturally holds less water, low humidity levels are typical for winter.
Even when we make our homes comfortably warm, the air stays just as dry unless we use a humidifier.
But why do viruses thrive in cold air?Cold air may help the flu virus survive longer outside of a human host, making it easier to linger after a cough or sneeze. And apparently the virus does a better job of circulating in low humidity.
An infected individual exhales virus encased in tiny water droplets, and those droplets evaporate more quickly if the air is dry. If the flu droplet shrinks fast enough, it can become so light that it circulates around in the air instead of falling to the ground.
Magical turmericTurmeric (Curcuma longa) is a spice grown in India and other in tropical countries in Asia . This spice has been part of religious ceremonies in India for thousands of years. Turmeric is related to ginger with which it shares some of its active ingredients.
What causes muscle soreness?Delayed onset of muscle soreness (DOMS) is a type of pain that most will experience after doing unusual exercise for the first time.
