Curcumin a “Miracle” Compound
Curcumin is the active compound of turmeric, which has been used for centuries in Chinese & Ayurvedic Medicine to reduce pain and combat inflammation.
Research indicates that this all-natural compound can help reduce pain, lower the risk of certain diseases, and improve cognitive performance.
A report published in the International Journal of Biochemistry & Cell Biology reviewed hundreds of published studies and concluded:
“Curcumin is an effective agent for the prevention and treatment of most chronic illnesses, including neurodegenerative, cardiovascular, pulmonary, metabolic, autoimmune and neoplastic diseases.
Research also found that curcumin improves mood and happiness just as well as the prescription drug Prozac. These conclusions were replicated in a joint study between John Hopkins and Howard University. They found that the antidepressant benefits of curcumin “stem from its ability to increase neurotrophic activity”.
But what’s the mechanism of action?
The benefits hinge on its ability to destroy inflammation. Curcumin exerts anti-inflammatory activity by inhibiting C-Reative Protein and a number of different cytokines and enzymes that play a role in inflammation. By reducing inflammation, curcumin has been shown to:
- Reduced disease risk
- Increased BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor)
- Increased insulin sensitivity
- Reduced symptoms of depression and increase mood
- Increase recovery time
- Protection against neural degradation
- Increase testosterone and improve muscle growth
Until now, there’s always been one drawback – poor bio-availability which means that only a small percentage of what you consume is readily absorbed by the body. Most research studies had participants taking dosages upwards of 15g per day.
Absorption is paramount in limiting the effectiveness of most supplements. The key to creating a truly groundbreaking product is finding a way to improve absorption.
Optimised Curcumin Absorption
Natural Stacks utilises patented NovaSOL technology to suspend the curcumin into liquid, instead of powder. A study using NovaSOL technology found that NovaSOL Curcumin (about 80 to 90 mg per day) is the bioequivalent dose of 12 to 15g of powder.
The product is optimised by suspending the liquid into organic coconut oil capsules to provide a pathway for rapid absorption into the body.
Natural Stacks Curcumin is 185X MORE BIOAVAILABLE than regular curcumin powder and 10X MORE BIOAVAILABLE than a fully standardised (95%) curcumin extract. It also remains in blood plasma for up to 24 hours.
Enhanced bioavailability and rapid absorption mean that you’re reducing inflammation, increasing cognitive function, and fighting chronic illness, faster than what was ever possible before.
