Curcumin for Athletes 

Curcumin has dramatically increased in popularity during the past few years. Curcumin is a cucuminoid found in turmeric and has recently been a big player in the supplement industry.

“What benefits can pharmaceutical grade curcumin provide?”

Turmeric is a well-known culinary spice, but it also has profound medicinal properties that are just now being realized and utilized in the Western world. In contrast, people in India have been using turmeric for centuries to help treat laryngitis, bronchitis and diabetes. Turmeric, which is derived from the plant Curcuma Longa, includes the active ingredient, curcumin. Curcumin accounts for approximately two to six percent of the spice and has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Curcumin as an Anti-Inflammatory

Curcumin provides strong natural pain relief.

Anti-inflammatory products and medications are important in the Western world because chronic inflammation plays a role in almost every major Western disease, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Muscle Wasting

Acute inflammation can be a normal physiological process (especially if you exercise) and can be a natural part of living a healthy life and repairing the bodily damage. However, inflammation can become a major problem if it becomes chronic and untreated.

Curcumin fights this problem by targeting multiple areas of the inflammation process. Curcumin blocks NF-kB, a molecule that is responsible for the inflammation of many cells and subsequently, plays a role in many chronic diseases.

Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant mineral, and one of the main active ingredients responsible for the health benefits provided by the herb turmeric.

Not to be confused with cumin, another popular herb used in curries, curcumin is found primarily in turmeric, the bright yellow herb. This herb can be added to just about anything, including herbal tea, and works best when taken with black pepper.

Since the discovery of its many health benefits, curcumin is also available in capsule form, and as a pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplement.

Anti-Inflammatory Properties of Curcumin


Curcumin structure

The anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin have been used in traditional eastern medicine for years. Anti-inflammatory action can work internally to combat pain or disease, and externally for skin care and swelling.

Medical studies have described the anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin.

Similar to the action of some steroids and anti-inflammatory pain relief medication such as ibuprofen, yet without the adverse effects.

The anti-inflammatory properties have been found helpful in the treatment of chronic pain caused by arthritis.

Anti-Oxidant Properties of Curcumin

Cucurmin powder benefitsCurcumin contains powerful anti-oxidants that work against the oxidative damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals attack the bodies cells causing disease and degradation.

Curcumin also helps boost the bodies natural ability to fight free radicals. Both effects increase the bodies overall ability to combat cell damage, preventing disease, improving health, and reducing the effects of aging.

Anti-carcinogenic Properties of Curcumin

Studies have shown that curcumin, a polyphenol, can reduce the growth of cancerous tumors, and even kill cancer cells at a molecular level.

Laboratory and animal studies have shown significant benefits, although the testing in humans is not complete, many studies indicate curcumin’s anti-inflammatory action. This naturally sourced supplement can block cancerous growth, and contribute to treatment and prevention of cancers, especially those in the digestive system.

Chronic Disease

Modern research has linked cell inflammation or free radical damage to the cause of most chronic diseases, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, cancer, and heart disease.

Besides anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, curcumin has a number of other actions that help fight chronic disease. Curcumin is shown to improve endothelium function to regulate blood pressure and clotting which protects against heart disease.

Curcumin improves BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor) a growth hormone which improves memory, reduces the risk of neurological disease, and helps fight depression. Studies have shown curcumin to assist in regulating blood sugar levels by enhancing the processing of sugars in our diet.

Curcumin versus Turmeric

Turmeric vs Curcumin powder

Regularly adding turmeric to our diet will help aid general health, wellbeing, and protection. We would need to use quite a lot of turmeric to get enough curcumin to combat any chronic disease.

In this case, it is beneficial to take curcumin supplements directly, rather than turmeric.

Best with Black Pepper

Studies have found that there is a vast increase in absorption rates when curcumin is combined with piperine, a substance that occurs naturally in black pepper.

These spices together make a perfect combination for many sauces, for adding to rice, stews, or vegetables. Or served combined, black pepper, turmeric, and ginger sprinkled in green tea, or just with hot water make a refreshing hot drink.

Summary of Benefits of Curcumin

Curcumin can be an incredibly beneficial natural treatment for pain, depression, heart disease, detoxification, and anti-aging, and prevention of chronic disease.

If you’re on Nutent Therapeutic’s site, you probably understand the value of turmeric, and its active ingredient curcumin. However, we here at Nutent Therapeutics are always looking for new and innovative ways to implement turmeric and curcumin in our diets and lifestyles. Of course, one practical and easy way to get the amazing health benefits turmeric possesses is by taking a turmeric or a curcumin supplement. One great, new option in terms of turmeric products is VOLT03, which is the first highly purified and well-regulated pharmaceutical-grade curcumin supplement. This product utilizes the most widely-studied plant-derived medicinal chemical in modern science, curcumin. Furthermore, this curcumin is purer and more effectively absorbing. This allows for full utilization of the miracle characteristics curcumin possesses. Seeing a need for a purer, more effectively absorbing curcumin, Nutent Therapeutics developed, tested and launched VOLT03. VOLT03 delivers the full effect of curcumin to your body at a rapid rate. Curcumin’s absorption in VOLT03 is improved through the complexation with gamma cyclodextrin, boosting solubility and ultimately bioavailability. It dissolves completely in water and reaches the bloodstream in high concentration (39 times more than common curcumin), therefore being more potent, less frequently dosed and available in smaller, easy-to-take capsules.

Bioavailability and Other Advantages of a Curcumin Supplement

hiThe bioavailability offered in VOLT03 brings up the immense health effects of curcumin, especially as administered via curcumin supplements. Curcumin is a natural anti-inflammatory compound (and inflammation plays a part in almost every major disease), it also increases the antioxidant capacity of the body (oxidative damage causes aging and several diseases), curcumin boosts brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) which improves brain function and lowers your susceptibility to brain diseases, and also can help prevent cancer by reducing angiogenesis, curcumin lowers your risk of heart disease, curcumin is helpful in preventing Alzheimer’s Disease by crossing the blood-brain barrier, curcumin helps combat depression by increasing brain-derived neurotrophic factor, curcumin helps delay aging and promote longevity by fighting oxidation and inflammation and lastly, curcumin supplements have helped arthritis patients treat their inflammation.

Other Ways to Obtain Curcumin

But curcumin supplements are not the only way to absorb all of those valuable nutrients. Turmeric can also be used in your diet. Turmeric tea is one way you can get the nutrients offered by curcumin and turmeric- you can brew turmeric tea with a variety of spices including nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, allspice and black pepper. You can also make a turmeric tonic with fresh ground curcumin. You can also implement turmeric in a number of dips and spreads. Hummus is one good spread that can use turmeric. You can also use it in cheese style spreads. Another good way to start using turmeric in your everyday diet is to add a pinch of turmeric into the next smoothie or milkshake you make. Another great way to use turmeric at dinnertime is to infuse it into the grains you use for pasta and other entree dishes. You can throw turmeric powder into the pot while you cook, or you can add a few pieces of fresh turmeric and remove it when you’re ready to serve.

The Nutent Therapeutics Difference

Of course, utilizing turmeric in your diet does not get you all of the health benefits available with a curcumin supplement, such as VOLT03, as offered by Nutent Therapeutics. It has the best to offer in terms of curcumin and turmeric supplements, which you can find on our site.

In our last blog posts, we discussed recipe ideas for cooking with turmeric. But some of them may have seemed a little sophisticated. In this blog post, we take it back to basics and give you some good ways to introduce turmeric into your diet with yummy recipes you won’t even realize contain a magic mineral. Read below for exciting ways to spice up your daily vitamin intake!

Moroccan Chicken

Chicken is a crowd-pleaser for almost all people and all cultures. A good way to introduce your friends and family to the wonders of turmeric is by utilizing something as widely loved as chicken to be the vessel that carries the magic mineral into your loved one’s mouths. Read on to discover steps for an amazing recipe that implements our favorite spice in a palatable manner.

Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven set over medium heat. Add onions, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Add garlic, paprika, cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, and cayenne and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add chicken broth and bring the mixture to a boil. Meanwhile, sprinkle chicken pieces with pepper, then add to the pot along with preserved lemon. (It’s okay if not all the chicken pieces are fully submerged in the broth.) Cover, turn the heat to medium-low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is tender and almost falling off the bone, 50 to 60 minutes. Use a pair of tongs to transfer the chicken to a platter.

Add olives and lemon juice to the pot. Raise the heat to high, bring to a boil, and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 5 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, and spoon the sauce over the chicken. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve hot.

Persian Frittata

Frittatas have become popular in recent years, due to their simplicity and ability to be dressed up in various ways. This persian frittata is a spin on the classic breakfast dish and it showcases the miraculous turmeric. Read on to find out how you can add a little middle eastern flavor to your daily routine.

Preheat oven to 400°F. Whisk together eggs, garlic, flour, turmeric, salt, and a few cracks of black pepper. Whisk in herbs, walnuts (if using), and dried fruit (if using). Heat butter or oil in a 10-12″ skillet over moderate heat. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and use the back of a spoon to spread it out evenly. Cook until the eggs start to set around the edges of the skillet, about 2 minutes. Place the skillet in the oven and bake until the eggs are completely set, about 5 minutes. To test, cut a small slit in the center.

Serve hot or cold, cut into wedges. This dish is especially delicious with a dollop of yogurt.

Superfood Baked Potato

This delightful, new-age spin on the classic baked potato features a slew of superfoods: kale, quinoa, salmon and our favorite, turmeric. It’s a little complicated, but follow the directions below to have your body feeling super!

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Rub potatoes lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place in a foil-lined baking pan and roast for 50 to 60 minutes or until the potato can be easily pierced. Next, direct your attention to the salmon component of the baked potato. Pat the salmon dry and remove any visible pin bones. Steep tea leaves in hot water for 5 minutes, then strain them out and stir soy sauce and rice vinegar into the green tea. Pour the mixture into a deep dish, and place the salmon in it, skin up.

In the last 20 minutes of baking the potatoes, remove the salmon from the marinade and pat dry. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper, and roast, skin-down, in the upper third of the oven for 12 minutes or until it can easily be flaked with a fork. Then, shred the cooked salmon for serving. Now you’ll want to focus on kale- wash chopped kale thoroughly then pat dry. Over medium heat, heat the coconut oil in a deep sauté pan. Add minced garlic and ginger and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute or until fragrant. Pour in lemon juice and water, cover the pan, and cook for 10 minutes or until the kale is cooked and tender but still toothsome.

Now our favorite part- turmeric yogurt. To make, whisk the turmeric into boiling water, then whisk in maple syrup. Whisk into yogurt, making sure the turmeric is completely stirred in. Lastly, to make popped quinoa, heat a deep pan over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons quinoa and cook undisturbed for 1 minute or until you hear a tiny pop. Watch for all the seeds to pop lightly and turn a darker golden color. Remove and cool.

To serve this delicious, healthy treat, split a baked potato down the center and top with the turmeric yogurt, kale, salmon, popped quinoa, flax seeds, and pomegranate arils.

BOCA RATON, Fla., July 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The first highly purified and well-regulated pharmaceutical-grade curcumin, the most widely-studied plant-derived medicinal chemical in modern science, is now commercially available.

If you’re not a fan of adding turmeric to your diet in dishes like turmeric soups, smoothies or as a spice for meat, you may try a turmeric supplement. Turmeric supplements also contain higher percentages of curcumin than naturally occurring turmeric, which is great because curcumin is really the star player behind turmeric, and its there that you will receive all the fantastic health benefits of turmeric supplements, curcumin supplements and other nutraceuticals.

Major Health Benefits of Turmeric and Curcumin

If you can’t remember what these health benefits are, here’s a little recap.  Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory compound (and inflammation plays a part in almost every major disease), turmeric increases the antioxidant capacity of the body (oxidative damage causes aging and several diseases), curcumin boosts brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) which improves brain function and lowers your susceptibility to brain diseases, turmeric can help prevent cancer by reducing angiogenesis, curcumin lowers your risk of heart disease, curcumin is helpful in preventing Alzheimer’s Disease by crossing the blood-brain barrier, curcumin helps combat depression by increasing brain-derived neurotrophic factor, curcumin helps delay aging and promote longevity by fighting oxidation and inflammation and lastly, curcumin supplements have helped arthritis patients treat their inflammation.

How To Take a Turmeric Supplement

So how should you take a turmeric supplement? How do you ingest curcumin in general? Well, turmeric has a poor oral bioavailability (a low percentage of what you consume is absorbed into your body and entered into your circulation) and thus should be taken with other agents such as black pepper extract. Supplements also help to pair turmeric and its subsequent curcumin with chemicals that help increase its bioavailability. Increased bioavailability is desirable unless you want the active ingredient curcumin in your colon (it is a colon anti-inflammatory and can aid with digestion), in which case you wouldn’t pair it with an enhancement.

turmericHow Much Curcumin To Take

And how much curcumin should you take? Well, doses that include up to eight grams of curcuminoids (in humans) have been shown to not be associated with many adverse effects at all and in vitro tests suggest curcumin has quite a large safety threshold. The acceptable daily curcumin dosage is three mg/kg body weight (three mg for every kg of bodyweight), according to the European Food Safety Authority Panel. It is important to follow these dosage guidelines, because turmeric supplements are comprised of a much larger curcumin concentration than natural turmeric is. Organic turmeric only contains between two and seven percent curcumin. Curcumin and turmeric supplements, however, are manufactured to contain a higher dosage and concentration of curcuminoids. Some of these supplements are standardized to contain a concentration of curcuminoids as high as 95 percent, so make sure you are cognizant about the dosage and not taking too much (or too little for that case, you still want it to be effective).

If you want the best in turmeric supplements, turn to Nutent Therapeutics. We have the highest quality, most effective curcumin supplements, turmeric supplements, and nutraceuticals on the market today.

Do you know about the powerful effects of turmeric and curcumin? Turmeric, a naturally occurring plant and spice contains the powerful compound curcumin, which is known to boast a number of significant health effects, especially when ingested orally or taken as a nutraceutical or regular pharmaceutical drug. Pharmaceutical curcumin is far more powerful and important than you may imagine. More and more studies have been proving the same thing, so we must deduce that this ingredient really is miraculous. Additionally, there are no adverse effects of curcumin, which is not the case of almost any pharmaceuticals currently on the market. Curcumin supplements offer all the power of a commercial medication while also providing the gentleness and lack of side effects as a natural remedy. Of course, curcumin and turmeric come from plants and are still being learned about. Nevertheless, they have been involved in many studies, from which we are obtaining information about them. We are now aware of the main benefits of curcumin and turmeric. Let’s check out the ones that are 100% guaranteed. Below, we list some of the primary benefits.

Curcumin Can Help With Alzheimer’s and Other Brain Diseases

Although this type of research is still new, there is a high likelihood that it will be more than successful. Scientists have discovered that curcumin may help you in preventing and treating Alzheimer’s Disease. So, what does it do? Basically, the curcumin will remove the Amyloid plaques, which are known to cause the disease in question. Furthermore, curcumin is just perfect in regulating the levels of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF). This is a hormone, which is similar to the growth hormone you may have heard of. Well, curcumin is an excellent way to increase the levels of this hormone. As a result, you can expect a much lower risk of brain disease and your brain function will be better.

Curcumin Aids Those With Arthritis

Pharma grade nutraceuticals have long been appreciated by people who suffer from arthritis. The ingredients are known for anti-inflammatory properties, which makes them ideal for this purpose. Several types of research confirmed the same thing, that people with arthritis recorded improvements after curcumin therapy.

Turmeric has a warm and bitter taste. It often is added as a good complement to curry powders, butters, cheeses and mustards.

Another important thing to note about turmeric is its active ingredient, curcumin. Yep, this is where the magic happens. Curcumin is a powerful compound known to have curative and anti-inflammation powers alike. Furthermore, curcumin has antioxidant properties and it’s a known fact that oxidation is terrible for you.

If you are interested in burning fat in an easy and natural manner, you may be interested to know that you can achieve this effect via earth’s ingredients, turmeric and curcumin. As you’ll recall turmeric is a powder grounded from an indian herb. Inside turmeric lies the compound curcumin, the active ingredient and star player, in terms of health benefits. Curcumin and turmeric are known to have powerful healing properties.

For example, turmeric is an antioxidant and it’s a known fact that oxidation is terrible for you. Furthermore, turmeric and curcumin boost brain derived neurotrophic factor aka BDNF which is linked to better brain health and lower rates of brain disease, act as a phytoestrogen and subsequently helps with menopause and cancer, lower heart disease rates and assist in pain relief for such ailments as arthritis, ulcers, stomach problems, fibromyalgia and headaches.

But did you know that it could help you burn fat too? Well, a lot of people didn’t until a recent study conducted by Tufts University.

In this study, animals ingested curcumin and some did not. It was found that the animals that ingested curcumin had less total body fat. This is because curcumin suppressed the expansion and growth of fat tissue by inhibiting the development of new blood vessel in fat tissue. Though this is just one study, it has huge potential to delve further into a world of turmeric fat burning.

And not to mention that turmeric and curcumin are great for you in other ways. Of course, fat burning is a big plus, and it is a real struggle to find a reputable, natural fat burner. But there are a million ways that turmeric can help you. It can protect against viruses and ease symptoms of depression- often why people brew themselves a cup of turmeric tea- so as to protect from flu season as well as seasonal affective disorder.

However, turmeric is a great vibe for the summer as well. You can add turmeric to a smoothie, a lovely treat on a hot day. You can add turmeric to your diet in a number of dishes with both vegetables and meat. You can make turmeric salad dressing. You can even implement it into your skincare regimen via a turmeric mask or soap.

Or, there is always the option of a good turmeric or curcumin supplement. Nutent Therapeutics is the gold standard for the industry of turmeric supplements and natural supplements in general. Their turmeric supplement is a pharmaceutical-grade product varied by successful clinical trials and clinical expertise.

Nutent Therapeutics will commercialize pharmaceutical-grade products that will be differentiated through successful clinical trials across multiple therapeutic areas.
