Contains a form of curcumin extract which is absorbed up to 700% better than standard extracts.

Description

PHARMACOLOGICAL ACTION
Turmeric’s active constituents are curcuminoids including curcumin. It seems to have anti-inflammatory activity, possibly inhibiting COX-2, prostaglandins, and leukotrienes. It also exhibits chemopreventive and growth inhibitory activity against several tumor cell lines. It seems to induce apoptosis in cancer cells an may inhibit angiogenesis. It may also have antithrombotic effects. Preliminary research suggests it might inhibit platelet-activating factor and arachidonic platelet aggregation, possibly by interfering with thromboxane synthesis. Further preliminary research suggests that turmeric might also have antioxidant and immunostimulatory effects. Since bioavailability is very low after oral administration, the Fortifood product uses a patented extract proven to enhance absorption by up to 700%.

INDICATIONS
Curcumin’s benefits are so diverse that they affect virtually every organ system in the body. It has been used as an anti-inflammatory in India for thousands of years. It has been proven to be effective in the treatment of dyspepsia (indigestion) and is also a powerful antioxidant and immuno-booster. Preliminary studies of its use in the prevention and treatment of various cancers also show promising results.
