Curcumin is a well-studied, scientifically-tested compound that acts as an antioxidant and an inflammation-supporting agent; it also promotes cognitive health and longevity*. Curcumin’s benefits are wide-ranging and impact several areas of your overall health
Curcumin, a component of the spice turmeric, has been studied and tested by medical researchers, such as MD Anderson Cancer Center for its effectiveness against diseases including cancer and Alzheimer’s. Researchers at the University of California looked at six human trials involving turmeric and concluded that it’s a safe and effective anti-inflammatory remedy. Curcuminoids also cause cancer cell apoptosis (programmed cell death). There are many diseases that are very inflammatory in nature, most being in the category of auto-immune diseases whereby the immune system breaks down and starts attacking itself. Curcuminoids have been shown to be very anti-inflammatory without any negative side effects and many additional positive benefits. They have the unique property of both preventing the formation of free radicals, and of neutralizing free radicals. Curcuminoids are considered to be bio-protectants due to their prevention and intervention activity.

Your immune system is a cooperating assembly of biological structures and processes within your body that protects you from infection and disease by identifying and eliminating pathogens, toxins and cancerous cells. Your immune system employs three main layers of defense: physical barriers, an innate attack system and an adaptive attack system based upon previous exposure and immunological memory. Certain vitamins greatly support all layers of your immune system.

“Six hundred and eighty-eight studies, more than 400 of them published within the last four years, confirm curcumin’s remarkable anticarcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. Within the last year, interest curcumin’s potential as a neuroprotective agent have been rising due to:
Epidemiological studies showing that in elderly Indian populations, among whose diet turmeric is a common spice, levels of neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s are very low.
A November 2001 study conducted at the Department of Plastic Surgery/National Burns Centre, Singapore General Hospital that demonstrated curcumin has excellent potential as a wound-healing agent.
And also last November, a study in the Departments of Medicine and Neurology at the University of California, Los Angeles that reported curcumin appears to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s in mice.”
