Curcumin is the main active ingredient in the Indian spice turmeric, and is responsible for the vibrant yellow colour. It has been used medicinally for more than 2000 years, as a potential antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal.
Curcumin is poorly absorbed in the body. To overcome this, Meriva® uniquely binds curcumin extract to the lipid molecule – phosphatidylcholine - creating a phytosome form, with increased absorption and bioavailability.
Each capsule of CurcuminX4000® contains 200mg of this highly effective formulation. A recent study showed the body was able to utilise between 20 – 45 times more curcumin phytozome compared to ordinary curcumin.
Supports the Body's Normal Inflammatory Response
Research suggests curcumin can help with the management of oxidative and inflammatory conditions, including metabolic syndrome, arthritis, anxiety, and hyperlipidemia. It may also help alleviate exercise-induced inflammation and muscle soreness, improving recovery and performance in active people.
It acts as an inhibitor of the COX-2 enzyme which is responsible for pain and inflammation. Studies also show it can also improve oxidative stress and reduce free radical damage. Now CurcuminX4000® can provide health benefits for a wide range of health conditions, with a lower dose, due to its high bioavailability and superior levels of absorption.
Studies also show that Curcumin promotes cardiac repair and ameliorates cardiac dysfunction following myocardial infarction.
Now with Added Fenugreek
Fenugreek is a herb from the same family as soy. Its small brown seeds have historically been used in cooking and as a natural medicine. Research suggests that it has a range of potential health benefits including lowering cholesterol, improving insulin function and regulator blood sugar levels.
Combining curcumin with fenugreek also further enhances the bioavailability, absorption and potential health benefits of curcumin. This CuruminX4000® formulation now includes 150mg fenugreek seed extract (per serving) so users can benefit from this powerful combination.
