Curcumin also slows down growth of fat cells and stimulates fat burning.

background reading

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.

Joint Health
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.

Jarrow Formulas Curcumin 95™ is a natural botanical extract from the spice turmeric root. Curcumin 95 contains 95% curcuminoids (including curcumin, demethoxycurcumin, and bisdemethoxycurcumin), which are scientifically well-documented antioxidants. Specifically, curcumin and its derivatives support DNA integrity and protect cells against oxidative damage induced by reactive oxygen species.

Should I worry about my cholesterol levels?

Recently, new guidelines were introduced for what is deemed to be a healthy cholesterol level. While formerly, it was adviced to introduce cholesterol lowering drugs when your 'bad' cholesterol level amounted to over 2.5 mmol/litre, that number now dropped to 1.8.
This big drop will probably result in a vast increase of people that are being administered cholesterol lowering drugs.

But what if I told you, cholesterol is a poor marker for heart health?

For decades, cholesterol testing has served as that warning for many. An elevated level of "bad" LDL cholesterol has been just the warning people needed to change their ways. It has played that role for several reasons. People like tests because the results seem objective. Reliable measurement of cholesterol is easy and relatively inexpensive. It makes sense biologically. LDL cholesterol, a protein-wrapped package containing fat and cholesterol, tends to slip out of the bloodstream and lodge in blood vessel walls, forming the plaque that leads to clots and heart attacks.

And it makes sense statistically. The correlation between lowering your LDL and lowering your chances of having a heart attack or developing other forms of heart disease is well documented. Indeed, exercise and dietary changes are good for the heart partly because they lower LDL cholesterol levels.

Usefulness of herbal medicine in modern times

Natural plant products have been used throughout human history for various purposes. In fact, written records of the use of herbal medicine date back more than 5000 years, and for much of history, herbal medicine was the only medicine.

Today, plants are being used to treat a number of health concerns and conditions, including allergies, arthritis, migraines, fatigue, skin infections, wounds, burns, gastrointestinal issues and even cancer, proving that it’s true that food is medicine. These herbs are less expensive and they’re a safer means of treatment than conventional medications, which is why so many people are choosing to go back to this traditional idea of medicine.

Why is turmeric such a magical herb?

Recently, it became once again evident how mainstream media is being manipulated by Big Pharma to scare the public away from using well-known and empirically proven supplements towards using pharmaceutical medicine.
One such health scare tactic was aimed towards the use of curcumin, which has become one of the most popular health supplements , among which to support people recovering from breast cancer.
Apparently, one effect of curcumin is that it speeds up detoxification processes in the liver, which results in medicine being broken down more easily.
In this particular health scare, that's an undesirable side-effect because tamoxifen, a frequently used post-treatment drug, is also broken down more rapidly and hence, becomes less effective at lower dosages, when combined with high dosages of curcumin.

While this was touted as proof how dangerous it is to take unproven herbal supplements, this is nothing out of the ordinary. Many other products can speed up the liver detoxification process, with the most famous of them being the mood-enhancing herb St. John's Wort.
However, there are other products that do the contrary, among which grapefruit as well as green tea , which slow down the same detoxification liver enzyme.

Some of you may not be aware yet why both turmeric and curcumin have become such popular condiments as well as food supplements. Therefore we present you a breakdown on what curcumin is about.

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 winter

There’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.

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.
