Taking a Curcumin supplement may help to sustain healthy bone density levels. The study conducted on patients with asymptomatic bone density conditions assessed the safety and efficacy of a Phytosome formulation of Curcumin (Meriva, by Indena).
The study looked at 57 healthy subjects who were inflicted with a bone mass condition, randomised into two different groups based on their ages and gender.
The experimental study period lasted for 6 months and during this time the control group had their bone density controlled with standard management techniques. The supplement group had 1g of a Curcumin oral-based supplement along with the standard management.
The results showed that the supplemented group had a +7.1% and 4.8% increase in levels of bone density of the upper jaw and small finger. At the end of the study (Week 24), this was shown to coincide with a decrease of 21% of ultrasound transmission values.
This study is just one of thousands on Curcumin that have been shown to have many benefits for improving health and preventing conditions from getting worse. Meriva is continuing to lead the role in modern, clinical development in the turmeric space. More studies are needed however to look into the benefits for bone density and how this is connected with using a unique formulation of curcuminoids.
Curcumin’s Role In Relieving Inflammation
Curcumin has been shown to be highly beneficial for promoting healing in a wide variety of health conditions, enabling the body to naturally heal itself over time. This is because Curcumin has a natural COX-2 inhibitor (COX-2 is an inflammatory enzyme) and inhibitors of this type have been shown to help relieve common everyday inflammation, triggered by a range of lifestyle factors.
However, ensuring that Curcumin is readily absorbed into the body to support bone density is a different story. Curcumin has the ability to antioxidise against free radicals. Research suggests that these important properties in Curcumin when used as a regular addition in your diet, may help to support and heal a wide range of health problems.
Curcumin: Nature’s Miracle Spice is a book by Robert Redfern of Naturally Healthy Publications that shows the health benefits of taking Curcumin for a wide range of conditions.
Due to its high levels of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory capabilities, Curcumin is excellent to use as a daily supplement as part of your overall health and wellness regime.
