Curcumin, found in the spice turmeric, gives curry its unique flavor and yellow color. A member of the ginger family, its medicinal uses date back over
6,000 years in the Middle and Far East. But its uses in modern medicine weren’t extensively studied until the mid-1970s. Since then it has gained attention
for its multiple health benefits, including its ability to inhibit enzymes that help produce inflammation in the body.1-17
The benefits of curcumin affect virtually every organ system in the body. So no optimal health regimen should be without it.
The problem is that curcumin is neither absorbed nor retained well in the blood. So Life Extension uses BCM-95®, a patented,
bioenhanced preparation of curcumin shown to reach up to 7 times higher concentration in the blood than standard curcumin.18 This curcumin is organically grown, cultivated to maturity, and processed to preserve and deliver the turmeric root’s most complete nutritional profile.
In studies comparing the effects of BCM-95® to conventional curcumin, researchers observed:19-20
- Nearly twice the support for immune health.
- About twice the support for inflammatory issues.
- Almost double the antioxidant support.
And a separate study indicated that this antioxidant-rich curcumin extract21 provided powerful support for heart health.
A 400 mg vegetarian capsule of Super Bio-Curcumin® with BCM-95® supplies the
equivalent of 2,772 mg of commercial curcumin supplements. A bottle containing 60 vegetarian capsules of Super Bio-Curcumin® retails for $38. If a customer buys four bottles, the price is reduced to only $26.25 per
bottle. (Item #00407)
Curcumin is also available in a combination formulation as Black Cumin Seed Oil with Bio-Curcumin® to inhibit inflammatory
factors and provide immune support. A bottle of 60 softgels retails for $32. If a customer buys four bottles, the price is reduced to only $22.50 per bottle. (Item #01710)
Life Extension also offers Advanced Bio-Curcumin® with Ginger and Turmerones. After curcumin is extracted from turmeric, what
remains is turmeric oil rich in compounds called turmerones. Combining these potent compounds with BCM-95® Bio-Curcumin® increases
the amount of curcumin inside the cell. This formula also provides the greatest concentration of standardized ginger compounds, including beneficial
gingerols and shogaols, to complement the health benefits of curcumin. A bottle of 30 softgels retails for $30. If a customer buys four bottles, the price is
reduced to only $20.25 per bottle. (Item #01924) Click here to view ingredients.
