Curcuminoids-95+ 95+% Curcuminoid Extract Stronger than OPC’s
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) Curcuminoids are the brilliant orange pigments of Turmeric (Curcuma longa). They belong to the family of polyphenols that includes all bioflavonoids, flavans and flavanols. All polyphenols are antioxidants, with certain groups being stronger than others. Among the most powerful are curcuminoids.
Vibrant Health's Curcuminoid-95+ delivers 250 mg. of extract of Turmeric in each Vegicap, 60 capsules per bottle. Maximized Curcuminoids 1000 provide a full gram of those same, wonderful, bright yellow curcuminoids.
The extract is more than 95% curcuminoids (curcumin, demethoxycurcumin & bisdemethoxycurcumin), bio-active phenolic compounds renowned for free radical scavenging and antioxidant activity.
Basic Attributes Curcuminoids have traditionally been used to relieve digestive disorders, liver disease and jaundice, urinary disorders, and skin problems, and to aid in wound healing, arthritic and allergic inflammations. In this last application, research demonstrates anti-inflammatory activity comparable to indomethacin and phenylbutazone. Whereas Curcuminoid-95+ is a potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antihistamine, Maximized Curcuminoids 1000 is truly meant for therapeutic applications.
The Technical Side The anti-inflammatory power of curcuminoids comes from their inhibition of enzymes that synthesize inflammatory leucotrienes, prostaglandins and prostacyclins from arachidonic acid, the ubiquitous omega-6 fatty acid so widespread in the western diet. Additional anti-inflammatory support comes from direct free radical scavenging. Curcuminoids’ antioxidant power also significantly blocks serum lipid peroxidation (as do many antioxidants), resulting in significant reduction of serum peroxides and cholesterol.
The curcuminoids have shown ability to inhibit mutagenesis and carcinogenesis in laboratory animals, to enhance the urinary excretion of tobacco mutagens, and to inhibit aflatoxins, potent carcinogens generated by the mold Aspergillus parasiticus found commonly on corn and peanuts. Curcuminoids also benefit the gastrointestinal tract by inhibiting growth of gram positive and gram negative pathogenic bacteria, fungi and intestinal parasites.
Who Can Use Curcuminoid-95+? Curcuminoid-95+ or Maximized Curcuminoids 1000 will support cardiovascular, intestinal and joint health, cancer prevention, anti-aging, general nutrition, athletic performance, post surgical recovery, and environmental protection.
Ingredients The primary curcuminoids of Turmeric, curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin, have shown anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-parasitic, anti-fungal, anti-mutagenic and chemopreventive properties.*
