Often times, people will be confused about what exactly curcumin and turmeric are. Curcumin has recently stepped into the scientific limelight, as it may offer a variety of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Turmeric is a spice that has long been used for its perceived medicinal properties. For example, it has been used traditionally in India as a treatment for bronchitis, diabetes, laryngitis, and as a disinfectant. Often used in cooking, this culinary spice gives Indian curry its yellow color and contains the powerful antioxidant, Curcumin. As the most active ingredient of turmeric, it makes up two to six percent of the spice.

The Evidence for Curcumin

Scientific studies have been conducted on India’s population, where they have significantly lower rates of Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s begins as an inflammatory condition of the brain and Curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties have been shown to help. There has been much speculation regarding whether the increased turmeric (and subsequently, curcumin) consumption by Indians has led to a decreased rate in related inflammatory disease in that region. Research has shown that the polyphenol curcumin can aid in the curative management of inflammatory and oxidative conditions that plague a large percentage of populations in developed countries. Anxiety, arthritis, metabolic syndrome and hyperlipidemia are conditions that also may benefit from curcumin supplementation.

Curcumin

To obtain curcumin, the rhizomes of the plant turmeric are grinded or grated and then

added to foods. Traditionally, turmeric is mixed with other spices in Indian cuisine to create curry powder, which is a staple in traditional Indian cuisine. Supplementing with Volt 03 or using turmeric as a rub or marinade may have profoundly beneficial effects on your health; however, turmeric rhizomes do not contain nearly as much curcumin as Volt 03.

Many studies of turmeric and curcumin have shown promising and surprising benefits, such as:

 

  • Alleviation of knee pain associated with osteoarthritis and reduced joint pain in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Curcumin seems to have cancer-protective effects by acting as a phytoestrogen.
  • Curcumin supplementation has been shown to treat many different types of cancer, such as prostate, skin, breast, and colon cancers.
  • Curcumin supplementation has been shown to decrease the disease relapse rate for those who are in remission from ulcerative colitis when compared to a placebo.

Scientific Evidence for Curcumin Supplementation

In one study, it was found that patients who received 400mg of curcumin three times a

yellow capsuleday for six days experienced an 84.2 decrease in post-surgical pain intensity when compared to the placebo group. This was due to a decrease in postoperative inflammation. After the experiment was conducted, Curcumin was shown to produce a better anti-inflammatory response than a placebo.

Volt 03 – A Pharmaceutical-Grade Complex of Curcumin

Our Product – Volt 03 – provides enhanced bioavailability, giving users over 80 mg of curcumin in each capsule. Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, has been shown to improve brain function, have anti-inflammatory benefits, provide relief from arthritis, and may help lower the risk of heart disease and Alzheimer’s.

If you’ve never heard of curcumin, try this. Go into your cupboard or pantry and look for a bottle of yellow spice. If you have a bottle of turmeric lying around, this bright-yellow spice is the source for curcumin, a powerful phytoestrogen and antioxidant. Turmeric is extracted from the root of the Curcuma longa plant and has been used throughout Southeast Asia and India as a spice, folk remedy, fabric dye, and as a preservative.

Curcumin wasn’t very well-researched until the 21st century rolled around. Since it’s discovery as a medicinal cure-all, scientific studies and experiments have been popping up from around the globe. Almost 3,000 research studies have been published (and that’s just for the journals in the English language)! Studies have shown that curcumin may play a role in helping the body develop a positive response to inflammation, all the way down to the cellular level.

Curcumin: A Potent Antioxidant

Curcumin has shown promising results by helping cells repair the damage done by free radicals. Curcumin exhibits a number of different mechanisms to help neutralize free radicals. By scavenging reactive

cutting board with knife and spicesnitrogen, peroxyl, and oxygen radicals, as well as managing enzyme activity, curcumin helps reduce oxidative stress. In turn, this benefits us on the cellular level by supporting the structural integrity of cells and by maintaining healthy cellular function

By supplementing with curcumin, this antioxidant can help facilitate an optimal response to inflammation. Considered nature’s most powerful anti-inflammatory, you should consider supplementing with curcumin for the management of diseases that can be brought on by chronic inflammation. Many of these diseases can be caused by chronic inflammation:

  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Alzheimer’s

Curcumin is shown to block the mechanism of action of a number of enzymes that are involved in the body’s inflammatory response.

Help Reduce Blood Glucose Levels with Curcumin

One study has shown that by reducing the hepatic glucose production, curcumin can help reduce blood glucose levels in individuals who are worried about blood sugar levels. This is a great, natural supplement to take for individuals who are suffering from diabetes or a pre-diabetic condition. Combined with a healthy diet and exercise, curcumin can help decrease inflammation while stimulating glucose uptake. This will help increase the production of insulin from the pancreas to aid in a healthy blood sugar level.

Best Curcumin Supplement

One of the drawbacks of supplementing with curcumin is the poor availability of the substance. This is due, in Curcumin’s natural state, to poor bio-absorption, rapid systemic elimination and half-life, and very rapid metabolism. Many supplements have added compounds such as bioperine is an

heart balloonsextracted form of black pepper and has been used as a bioavailability enhancer for years with a number of different supplements and compounds.

Our product, Volt 03, uses a compound that is even stronger than bioperine and aids in the absorption of the polyphenolic compound Curcumin. We use a pharmaceutical-grade cyclodextrin complex that was found that, compared to other curcumin supplements, our cyclodextrin-complexed curcumin showed the highest plasma concentrations of curcumin, demethoxycurcumin, and total curcuminoids. When compared to standardized unformulated curcumin, it showed a 39-fold increase in total curcuminoids.
