Super Bio-Curcumin®
400 mg 60 vegetarian capsules
Item Catalog Number:
00407

Curcumin is impressing scientists around the world with its remarkable multiple health benefits. Curcumin is a polyphenol present in the spice turmeric and was first used by Indians over 3,000 years ago in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Modern science has found that curcumin has remarkable health benefits for nearly every organ system in the body13-18 … including its ability to inhibit enzymes that help produce inflammation in the body.19

Studies have tied inflammation to overexpression of a protein molecule called nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kappaB). NF-kappaB acts like a switch to turn on genes that produce the body’s inflammatory responses. Because NF-kappaB’s expression increases in aging adults, scientists have sought ways to modulate NF-kappaB and its effects in the body.

Curcumin has been shown to exert powerful inhibitory effects on NF-kappaB activation within the body.20-23 Curcumin inhibits overexpression of NF-kappaB. In addition, curcumin inhibits the metabolism of arachidonic acid, as well as activities of cyclooxygenase, lipoxygenase, and cytokines (interleukins and tumor necrosis factor).24-27

Other clinical trials suggest roles for curcumin in helping maintain healthy bowel and joint functions.28-36 Curcumin can also help maintain normal healthy platelet function,37-40 and have immunomodulatory effects by inhibiting histamine release from mast cells.41-43 Other studies show curcumin’s potential for supporting healthy brain function and offering neuroprotection.44-53

Curcumin may effectively support pancreatic islet health.54-59 Curcumin’s multifaceted effects include protecting against estrogen-mimicking chemicals,60-64 protecting against free radicals, and promoting normal cell cycle growth.

The problem is that curcumin is poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. Super Bio-Curcumin® absorbs up to seven times better than conventional curcumin. So this patented formula represents the most cost-effective way to supplement with this critical nutrient. Studies show that one 400 mg capsule a day of this turmeric compound can provide curcumin blood levels equal to ingesting 2,500–2,800 mg of commercial curcumin supplements. And not only does this turmeric formulation provide far greater peak blood levels, but the curcumin remains in the bloodstream almost twice as long as conventional supplements. And this enhanced absorption delivery complex provides other beneficial turmeric compounds in addition to standardized curcumin.

Each 400 mg capsule of Super Bio-Curcumin® is equivalent to 2,772 mg of a typical 95% curcumin extract.

Take it twice a day WITH FOOD, everyday for a few years so far and coincidentally have not been sick since I began. I used to have plenty of allergy and sinus issues and would get bad head colds every year but now I just take 2 of these per day and cross my fingers. So far, so goood! I recommend these to everyone I know and they have benefited many friends & family members. I am not normally the type of person to take something everyday but this is different, I am absolutely sure I have been a healthier person from daily Curcumin intake.

Good product but...

Regular daily use is hard on my stomach so I need to take it every other day even though I take it with food.

    Comments about Life Extension Super Bio-Curcumin®, 400 mg 60 vegetarian capsules:

    It states in fine print on the bottle that is is not to be taken by gall stone sufferers. I can attest to that as it caused continuous low level discomfort in the gall bladder area and brought on my first full blown attack. Would highly recommend for all others.

      Comments about Life Extension Super Bio-Curcumin®, 400 mg 60 vegetarian capsules:

      This is one of the best supplements you can take.
      The problems in the past is that curcumin doesn't absorb well. This product improves on that.

      This is what I do to make try and make it more absorbable.

      Since curcumin is insoluble in water but very soluble in an alkaline solution I use a shot glass and open up one curcumin capsule and one half teaspooon of baking soda. I mix these together good with the other end of the spoon.

      Because it is believed that curcumin absorbs better in a cooking oil I mix in one teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil and one teasoon of a liquid coconut oil. ( you can buy this in a liquid form.)

      I mix this together good and drink it. Making sure i get it all with the spoon. I have the worst stomach there is and this doesn't bother me.

      If your into vitamins like i am give this a try. It is better to try these things before illness strikes

        I use this product every day. It is fantastic. When I first started, my sphincter itched--to show its effectiveness. I usually make sure to use black pepper with food when taking, as I've heard that increases absorption, as well!

                    I like the fact you only need to take one per day.
                    This makes it more economical than other brands which require more doses.

                    No "burp up" after taste as in other brands.

                    Fast acting--love the product. Will continue to use.
