Advanced Bio-Curcumin® with Ginger & Turmerones
30 softgels
Item Catalog Number: 01808

Curcumin is an active compound derived from the Indian spice turmeric. It has been widely acclaimed for its diverse health-promoting effects on nearly every organ system in the body,1-6 including its support for the body’s natural inflammatory response system.7 But most curcumin is neither absorbed well nor retained well in the blood—posing a challenge to those who wish to maximize its benefits.8

Life Extension® took the lead in resolving this issue several years ago by introducing Super Bio-Curcumin® containing BCM-95®, a patented, bioenhanced preparation of curcumin that has been shown to reach up to seven times higher concentration in the blood than standard curcumin.8

Now, an exciting next generation curcumin formula has become available. Advanced Bio-Curcumin® with Ginger & Turmerones provides additional compounds that further boost absorption of curcumin’s highly beneficial phytonutrients.9,10

In addition to BCM-95®, this new curcumin formula contains:

  1. Turmerones: After curcumin is extracted from turmeric, what remains is turmeric oil rich in compounds called turmerones.11,12 Combining BCM-95® with a high content of turmerones provides health consumers with more beneficial turmeric compounds that further multiply absorption.9 Scientists have shown that these potent turmerones not only support curcumin absorption, but significantly increase the amount of curcumin inside the cell as well.9
  2. Ginger: Curcumin and ginger are close botanical relatives. Research demonstrates that they have overlapping and complementary health benefits,13 and scientists are focusing on the therapeutic effects of combining these two plants.14,15 Advanced Bio-Curcumin® with Ginger & Turmerones provides a supercritical extract of ginger standardized to the greatest concentration of ginger compounds—including beneficial gingerols and shogaols.
  3. Phospholipids: This new curcumin formula also contains phospholipids, a type of emulsifying molecule known to greatly enhance absorption of poorly soluble active compounds.10

The enhanced bioavailability and potency of Advanced Bio-Curcumin® with Ginger & Turmerones is superior to conventional curcumin supplements. This product represents the most powerful and cost-effective way to supplement with—and receive the full benefits of—this very critical nutrient.

    Noticeable Effect

        Comments about Life Extension Advanced Bio-Curcumin® with Ginger & Turmerones, 30 softgels:

        I take this product in the morning before breakfast. If I don't eat I'll notice a warmth in my stomach. If you are a first time user you may want to take it with a meal the first few times even if you don't generally have food at the time you choose to take it.

        I've noticed that my knees are more resilient when I'm taking this. For example, I don't have serious issues but I will notice discomfort the day after crossing my legs for any length of time while sitting at my desk. While supplementing with this product my knees don't feel aggravated the next day.

        The first time I took this it was on an empty stomach. While I noticed the supplement I would not characterize it as upsetting my stomach but I would recommend someone with a sensitive stomach take this with food.

          I had taken the Super Circumin product without problems, but this product seemed to cause stomach upset and I did not tolerate it as well.

              Comments about Life Extension Advanced Bio-Curcumin® with Ginger & Turmerones, 30 softgels:

              I have taken the "real" Super Bio-curcumin for a while, and I accidentally bought this stuff. It is NOT equivalent. Would have returned it if I had realized my mistake in time. I do not experience anywhere near the effectiveness of the curcumin in this product (measured by facial twitch, which disappears with the "real" stuff), and my stomach burned on the ginger. Plus, this is more expensive.

              It was my mistake. All I can say is these two products are not equivalent, IMO. I'm a bit irritated at LEF for not providing a list of "stuff you ordered before" so that I might have found it harder to make this mistake.

                Another Life Extension product that would otherwise be very attractive, except for the use of a gelatin casing.

                Good precautionary supplement

                By Justin Nuther Reviewer

                from Washington, DC

                About Me Health Conscious

                Cons

                  Comments about Life Extension Advanced Bio-Curcumin® with Ginger & Turmerones, 30 softgels:

                  I take this new product daily after having taken the older Bio-Curcim formulation (orange-colored curcumin powder in capsule form).

                  I personally don't feel anything from the product, except for a pronounced "warm feeling" in my stomach from the ginger.

                  I do understand that somewhere in my body, it's supposed to help fight inflammation, which is said to be the root of many physical issues. So I consider it essential, like a multi-vitamin.

                    I use this in conjunction with DHA/EPA and Ubiquinol immediately preceeding breakfast as a synergistic 'tonic' to realize all of the benefits described in the most recent literature.
