Curcumin is a natural polyphenol derived from turmeric spice and is responsible for giving turmeric its yellow-orange color. Body First’s Curcumin extract is a premium herbal extract of curcuminoids standardized from pure turmeric root. Curcumin has been observed to reduce inflammation, promote circulatory and cardiovascular health, improve digestive health and may possess anti-carcinogenic properties. *
Curcumin has been a popular candidate for exploratory scientific research surrounding cancer prevention. A 2010 study focusing on malignant brain tumors found curcumin to effectively inhibit the proliferation of tumor cells due to its interference with tumor gene expression. Multiple other studies have reached similar conclusions and although more research is needed curcumin’s anti-carcinogenic properties are very intriguing. *
Studies have also shown that groups supplementing with curcumin saw reduced oxidative stress, improved antioxidant capacity and a reduction in bodily inflammation. Additional research supports curcumin’s ability to significantly reduce the occurrence of colon cancer in rats when given a known carcinogen. Body First’s Curcumin extract is standardized to contain 630mg of total curcuminoids per capsule making it one of the most potent curcumin products on the market. *
