Curcumin is an extract of the spice turmeric and benefits nearly every organ system in the body. It can help support brain, breast, pancreas, and even colon health, as well as promote healthy cell division and a healthy inflammatory response. Which is why no whole body health regimen is complete without it. While curcumin is typically poorly absorbed, Super Bio-Curcumin® features BCM-95®, a patented curcumin that absorbs up to 7 times better than standard curcumin supplements.

Curcumin has been shown to exert powerful inhibitory effects on NF-kappaB activation.14-19
