As we age, a balanced immune and inflammatory response becomes critical to guarding our health.65-69 Research has shown Black Cumin Seed Oil to be particularly effective.70-78
Scientists have determined that black cumin seeds contain a broad spectrum of active compounds.70 Combined, these compounds provide powerful and wide-ranging immune support and promote healthy inflammatory response.70,71
A number of biological factors contribute to the body’s normal inflammatory activity, including cell-signaling chemicals and hormone-like messengers.77,78 In a series of scientific studies, Black Cumin Seed Oil has been shown to support the normal effectiveness of these inflammatory factors.70,71
Also, an aging, healthy immune system needs to orchestrate the activity of macrophages and helper T-cells. Black Cumin Seed Oil was also shown to support the optimal function of this vitally important defensive activity.79-81
By acting on both immune factors and inflammatory factors, Black Cumin Seed Oil supports a healthy immune system — which is increasingly important as we age — and facilitates a healthy inflammatory response!
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.
Bio-Curcumin® absorbs up to seven times better than conventional curcumin. And not only does this 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.
