What Is Curcumin?

Curcumin's Health Benefits

& why we included it in our new Joint Health Multi

We have all heard of turmeric, but have you heard of curcumin? 

Today we are going to discuss the ins and outs of what curcumin is and why you should take it!

So... What Is Curcumin?

Curcumin is an active ingredient in turmeric, the yellow spice popular in Ayurvedic medicine. Inside turmeric, there are 3 different types of curcuminoids: curcumin, demethoxycurcumin, and bisdemethoxycurcumin. 

But curcumin is the one we want to look at. It is the most active with the most health benefits.

What Does Curcumin Do?

Curcumin is a natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Curcumin’s anti-inflammatory response is as effective as other more common anti-inflammatory medications like NSAIDs without the negative side effects.

It blocks the NF-kB molecule that triggers inflammation in the nuclei of your cells. NF-kB (nuclear factor-kappa beta) is a protein that controls DNA transcription as it relates to cytokine production and cell survival.

Curcumin’s antioxidant properties neutralize free radicals and increase your body’s antioxidant enzymes.

Your Options For Curcumin Supplementation

Curcumin is found in turmeric which is a readily available spice; however, it is possible to find it in its isolated form in multivitamins and supplements.

Curcumin can be difficult for the body to absorb. Often it passes through your body undigested. To make it more bioavailable, it is often taken with piperine, a substance found in black pepper.

Dr. Meredith Warner’s new Joint Health Multi has been formulated to relieve sore joints while reducing inflammation over time with natural ingredients. It is meant to be a potential alternative to OTC or prescription NSAIDs. 

This formula includes several inflammation-fighting ingredients like PEA (Palmitoylethanolamide), turmeric, curcumin, ginger root extract, and piperine for fast and efficient absorption! 

These ingredients each have proven track records with regard to managing the symptoms and difficulties you have with arthritis and inflammation; together they are even better and more powerful for you and your health!
