Turmeric, a common spice in Indian cuisine, has garnered a lot of attention from scientists and doctors from across the world for its medicinal value. The rhizome of turmeric is derived from the curcumin plant (Curcuma longa) and modern laboratory methods have helped in turning this ancient remedy into a powerful natural medicine.
Researchers have found several biologically active compounds—called curcuminoids—in the plant that have the power to treat and manage a wide spectrum of diseases. However; in order to reap the benefits of turmeric, it is important that the active compounds are made available to the body in a concentrated form.
Turmeric, or more specifically curcumin has become the 21st century wonder botanical because of its potential to treat and heal several ailments. Curcumin offers a wide spectrum of benefits to the body because of its antioxidant and anti-inﬂammatory properties. It helps to prevent and fight a wide range of serious inflammatory diseases, such as, arthritis, metabolic diseases, cardiovascular disease and cancer though its powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, chemo-preventive (cancer-preventive), and antineoplastic (cancer-fighting) properties.
As an “all-in-one” super food, curcumin supports the body in several ways. It improves the function of our major organs, including the heart, liver, and kidneys; it controls the cell proliferation associated with cancer; and it promotes soft tissue regeneration. It also promotes optimal immune function by down-regulating inflammatory chemicals like COX-2 and Nuclear Factor-KB.
Despite its many benefits, the effectiveness of oral supplementation with curcumin has been limited by its poor absorption into the bloodstream through the digestive tract. Researchers have now found a way to make curcumin more stable, improve absorption, and extend retention time in the blood thereby making it useful as an effective therapy.
This is where BCM-95™, a bio-available form of curcumin that provides even greater pharmaceutical potencies to maximize curcumin’s efficacy, comes in. BCM-95™, a 100 percent standardized extract of turmeric, is produced by combining Curcumin with the essential oils of turmeric using a unique and patented process that delivers a superior-absorbing curcumin formulation that is 7 to 10 times more bio-available than conventional curcumin extracts!
A recent analysis of curcumin products with enhanced absorption shows that blood levels of BCM-95™ are not only much higher than other forms of curcumin, but that it also remains in the bloodstream for 8 to 12 hours.
BCM-95™ amplifies and potentiates curcumin’s effectiveness, explains Dr. Ajay Goel from the Gastrointestinal Cancer Research lab at Baylor University. “Abundant data point to the pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory efficacy of curcumin and these benefits are essentially drawn from its ability to suppress and inhibit the activities of two major pro-inflammatory targets within our cells: NF-kB and COX-2, an enzyme that causes inflammation.”
Dr. Goel’s research group demonstrated that curcumin acts as a specific COX-2 inhibitor, and plays an important role in not only reducing pain, but that it also has the capability to prevent chronic diseases that occur due to inflammation. Studies show the enhanced effectiveness of BCM-95™ on various ailments from joint disease and diabetes, to gastric conditions, cardiovascular disease and depression. According to many integrative medical groups and researches, BCM-95™ has emerged as the most promising curcumin available to us today.
