Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric, the spice often used in curries. Turmeric has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years for various inflammatory conditions. Recently, there has been a lot of positive scientific research confirming these benefits. Not surprisingly, several new curcumin products have become available.
Curcumin is like fish oil in that it has multiple benefits. Curcumin is used for pain/inflammation, brain health or cognitive decline, cancer prevention, heart health and even alleviating depression. Many of these seemingly unrelated disease conditions trace back to inflammation and reducing inflammation is how curcumin works. So it is not surprising that curcumin appears to do so many different things. Anyone taking fish oil ought to seriously consider adding curcumin to his or her supplement regimen.
Curcumin is very poorly absorbed but is safe even at very high doses. Taking turmeric spice is not recommended, as it is barely absorbed. Several competing technologies that provide higher-absorption curcumin have become available. Most of them claim to be better than the other types of curcumin.Read more ›
When my husband's neurologist recommended taking turmeric/Curcumin to help to slow the progress of memory loss, I researched it further. Curcumin is the plant source of turmeric used in curry powder. The incidence of Alzheimer's disease in India where this spice is heavily used is the lowest in the world.
According to Indian medical studies, Curcumin decreases beta-amyloid brain plaque that is connected to Alzheimer's disease. Curcumin delays neuron decline and acts as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant in the body. The overall memory in patients with vascular dementia and Alzheimer's disease improved.
First couple of days I noticed a remarkable difference in my elbow discomfort, but I dismissed this as just a transient comfort associated with not exacerbating the tendinitis. During the time I was taking the pills I experienced a significantly reduced pain in the elbow, not completely gone, but acceptable. I thought that my tendinitis had run its course and I was back to my old self. WRONG!!! When I ran out of the pills, within several days my elbow started up again. UhhhhhhhhH!!!! So back to Amazon I went to get some more. This time I went with Jarrow's Formula to see if there was a difference (other than price). Since then my elbow is lovin' this stuff. So yea, I agree with the other users that this stuff is actually efficacious.
One thing that I did do, and I did some extensive research on this, was that you MUST take this product with piperine (Bioprerine), or curcumin may not work. This was suggested on many of the sites that I viewed before my decision and purchase.Read more ›
