Curcumin is a valuable antioxidant with numerous health applications, first used in India over 3000 years ago in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Curcumin may provide antioxidant protection and may provide joint, hepatic, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular support. The results of in vitro and animal models suggests the combination of R-Lipoic acid and Curcumin supports detoxification and elimination of toxins.*
Why Take Curcumin with Bio-Enhanced® R-Lipoic Acid?
- Both RLA and Curcumin have been shown to protect and strengthen the colon, bowel, liver, heart and joint functions.
- RLA and Curcumin have been shown to promote cardiovascular health.
- RLA and Curcumin has shown to protect against damaging free radicals by inhibiting their formation and scavenging them once formed.
- Each dose of R-PLUS-Curcumin® with 400 mg of Curcumin is equivalent to 2,772 mg of a typical 95% curcumin extract.
- The Curcumin used in this product is BCM95®, with bio-availability 6-7 times higher than common 95% extract. BCM-95® also delivers almost 7 times more curcumin to the bloodstream than ordinary standalone curcumin products.
BCM95® consists of Curcumin, Desmethoxy curcumin, Bis desmethoxy curcumin and the essential oils of the turmeric rhizome. Many researchers have concluded that the synergism of the essential oils and curcuminoids enhances the bioactivity of BCM95.
A well conducted Single Dose, Human Clinical, and Crossover study showed than BCM-95 is several times more bioavailable and retains longer in blood than commercially available turmeric 95% extract.
Absorption of Super Bio-Curcumin® in Humans (AUC: ng/mL x h)
Human clinical studies have proven that BCM-95® is several times more bio-available and retains longer in blood than the commercially available Turmeric 95% Extracts.
Comparison of BCM-95 ® with Turmeric 95% Extract
|BCM-95®||Turmeric 95% Extract|
|Several times more bio-available confirmed via Human Clinical Studies||Poor bio-availability|
|Retains longer in the blood, confirmed via Human Clinical Studies (up to 8 hours)||Major concern on retention (up to 4-5 hours)|
|High ORAC value (+13,000)||Low ORAC value (2,000 – 4,000)|
