Benefits backed by science
Bones & joints
Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant with natural anti-inflammatory compounds. Inflammation is incredibly important as it helps your body fight foreign invaders. It can become a major problem when it becomes chronic and inappropriately attacks your body’s own tissues. Curcumin acts to interfere and block inflammatory response pathways in the body, offering a protective effect and reducing painful inflammation.
Boswellia serrata, or simply boswellia as it is commonly known, is a herb that grows throughout the warmer climes of India. Like turmeric, it also has roots in ayurvedic traditions, having been used for centuries for many health applications. Recent studies have identified several compounds within boswellia with powerful wellness properties, including boswellic acid, which research shows is particularly helpful for joint health and comfort. Research also suggests that when combined, these singularly effective supplements prove more effective, offering synergistic benefits.
Curcumin is attributed to increasing the brain hormone BDNF, which improves the function of neurons, encourages their growth and strengthens and protects them. Many common brain disorders have been linked to decreased levels of this hormone, including depression and Alzheimer’s disease. Some recent studies on turmeric show that curcumin can increase brain levels of BDNF and by doing so, may be effective in delaying or even reversing many brain diseases and age-related decreases in brain function.
Heart & veins
Research suggests that curcumin may help reverse many steps in the heart disease process. Perhaps the main benefit of curcumin when it comes to heart disease is improving the function of the endothelium, which is the lining of your blood vessels. It’s well known that endothelial dysfunction is a major driver of heart disease and involves an inability of your endothelium to regulate blood pressure, blood clotting and various other factors. Several studies suggest that curcumin leads to improvements in endothelial function.
Due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric can contribute to healthy digestion. It’s used in ayurvedic medicine as a digestive healing agent. Now western medicine has begun to study how turmeric can help with gut inflammation and gut permeability, two measures of your digestive efficiency. Turmeric is even being explored as a treatment for irritable bowel syndrome.
Ginger has a long tradition of being very effective in alleviating discomfort and pain in the stomach. It’s regarded as an excellent carminative, a substance that promotes the elimination of excessive gas from the digestive system, and soothes the intestinal tract.
Why take our Curcuma Complex
Three powerful anti-inflammatories
Curcumin acts to interfere and block inflammatory response pathways in the body, offering a protective effect and reducing painful inflammation. Boswellia is particularly helpful for joint health and comfort. Research also suggests that when combined, these singularly effective supplements prove more effective, offering synergistic benefits. Ginger, too, has anti-inflammatory effects and, for those suffering with joint and muscle pain, could prove to be effective. Our team combined this trio of powerful anti-inflammatories to create what we believe to be, a market leading formulation.
Our Curcuma Complex contains a patented turmeric extract, with a high concentration of curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, which is made of 100% natural ingredients, perfect for vegans.
We have added piperine, the active ingredient in black pepper, which, when combined with curcumin, maximises its absorption and bioavailability. Research suggests that piperine enhances curcumin absorption in the body by up to 2,000%. Therefore, combining these spices magnifies their effects.
Curcumin is turmeric’s main active component and most widely studied polyphenol. It’s a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agent, and clinical research suggests that curcumin supports joint pain, blood lipid levels, depression symptoms and skin health – among other benefits.
Curcumin is generally safe and does not cause any significant side effects. Occasionally, some people may experience stomach upset, nausea, dizziness or diarrhea after taking curcumin at very high doses for an extended period of time. Curcumin is not recommended for people on anticoagulant medication. In addition, you should consult your doctor before beginning curcumin if you have gallbladder issues, diabetes, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, history of breast cancer, gastroesophageal reflux disease or iron deficiency.
Boswellia, also known as Indian frankincense, is an herbal extract taken from the boswellia serrata tree. Resin made from boswellia extract has been used for centuries. Four acids in boswellia resin contribute to the herb’s anti-inflammatory properties.
Ginger is loaded with nutrients and bioactive compounds that have powerful benefits for your body and brain. Here are some of the potential health benefits of ginger:
1. Ginger is high in gingerol, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
2. Studies suggest that relatively small amounts of ginger can help prevent various types of nausea, including morning sickness.
3. May help with weight loss.
4. Research suggest that ginger may lower blood sugar levels and improve various heart disease risk factors
5. There’s some evidence that ginger can lead to significant reductions in LDL (bad) cholesterol.
Most people find success taking turmeric either in the morning to start their day, or at night before bed to combat inflammation from the day's activities. We also recommend that you take Curcuma Complex with a meal since curcumin absorption increases when paired with healthy fats.
