The active ingredient of curcumin in Turmeric has been named as one of the three spices that are effective against cancer according to the Director of the Anti-Inflammation Research Institute in San Diego.
Spices contain various compounds that can fight oxidation and inflammation. These two processes are underlying in most chronic diseases including cancer. The curcuminoid properties in turmeric can help with preventing oxidation and this results in chronic and low-grade inflammation that can trigger or advance many lifestyle diseases.
The research proves that when curcumin is taken as a supplement, it can be as effective as and if not more than some pharmaceutical drugs without any unwanted side effects.
A suggested curcumin formulation from Robert Redfern is CurcuminX4000™ which contains 600mg of Meriva® (root) Curcuma longa extract for superior bioavailability and absorption into the bloodstream. A recent study has shown that each CurcuminX4000™ capsule contains 200mg of highly effective Curcumin phytosome and this shows an increase in utilisation by up to 20-45x compared with ordinary Curcumin.
Along with taking a daily dose of Curcumin, it’s highly recommended to follow an active and healthy lifestyle and to ensure you take the right nutrients along with taking Curcumin on a daily basis.
