Discontinued, we refer you to other curcumin products
Jarrow Formulas Organic Curcumin 95 contains highly concentrated curcuminoids, which are lipid soluble antioxidants in the spice turmeric root. Curcumin and its metabolites support antioxidant status to minimize oxidative stress. Curcumin supports joint function.
Organic 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.
