Turmeric's Many Benefits
Herbs and spices have more antioxidants than any other food group. Turmeric is among these potent antioxidants. With its use, one could help prevent DNA mutations that lead to cancer and other disease. The number of cells with DNA damage could essentially be cut in half with just a little bit of this yellow magic.
A number of clinical trials have tested Curcumin (the pigment in Turmeric that yields its bright yellow color) against a number of diseases. The trials have shown this spice to play a significant role in the prevention and/or treatment of brain diseases, a variety of cancers, lung diseases, and painful joint conditions.
SUPPLEMENT VS. RAW
In raw form, it doesn't take much to make an impact. However, many do not enjoy the taste of this spice or choose to cook with it often enough to make a long-term difference. Until recently, supplementation was rather controversial due to Turmeric's inability to remain active in the body long enough to provide the wide array of benefits it is capable of. Any use is still good use, but optimizing the amount of time Turmeric remains active in the blood and the body, is rather essential. Many supplements use piperine, black pepper, to help increase the absorption rate.
One published clinical study really caught some attention. A bio-enhanced manufacturing method was able to deliver a remarkable 96% absorption with this new technology. Until recently, this was unheard of.
BCM-95® Turmeric/Curcumin was able to reach a peak in the bloodstream within one hour, dip briefly at two hours post-dose, and reach a second even higher peak at 4 1/2 hours post consumption. Even after 8 hours, Curcumin was still detectable in the blood.
The formulators were able to reincorporate the components of raw turmeric root, normally removed during extraction, and greatly enhance the bio-availability of the active constituents in the process.
Chart 2. Super Bio-Curcumin® (BCM-95®) showed 6.9 times greater bioavailability (absorption and sustainability over 8 hours) in humans compared with conventional curcumin (as measured by the area under the curve [AUC] in a plot of blood levels against time, that is, the total amount of curcumin absorbed by the body over 8 hours).
Chart 3. Super Bio-Curcumin® (BCM-95®) showed 6.3 times greater bioavailability (absorption and sustainability over 8 hours) in humans compared to plant-bound curcumin with piperine (as measured by the area under the curve [AUC] in a plot of blood levels against time, that is, the total amount of curcumin absorbed by the body over 8 hours).
Our Flamasil® product contains an exciting 150mg of BCM-95®, one of many extremely beneficial ingredients in this comprehensive formulation!
