CURCUMINOIDs are polyphenols extracted from the plant Curuma Longa.
Curcumin has been used for over 3000 years traditionally by Indians, Chinese and Indonesians as a natural remedy for a variety of ailments. Modern Medicine has found that this extract has remarkable qualities such as:
1) Anti-oxidant - Scavenging free radicals. Over time, as our cells continue to be affected by free radicals, or oxidants, they begin to degenerate and AGING is accelerated. As we age, our body's ability to fight free radicals reduces.
BIOCURCU can enhance the production of GLUTATHIONE, an important intracellular antioxidant.
2) Anti-tumor - IMMUNE SYSTEM- A report in 2007 indicates that the extract in BIOCURCU may suppress the oncogene MDM2, involved in mechanisms of malignant tumor formation. This extract has been found to induce cell cycle arrest and APOPTOSIS in a variety of cancer cell lines grown in culture.
3) Anti-Amyloid- BRAIN AGING - Alzheimer's disease is considered a form of dementia, a brain disorder, that primarily involves the parts of the brain that control thought, memory and language. Its cause is unknown and no cure is available yet. The extract in BIOCURCU has been found to help avert the insidious evolution of amyloid beta plaques in the brain and Inhibit the formation and extension of beta amyloid fibrils- 2 key abnormalities found in the brain of Alzheimer's patients.
4) Anti-inflammatory- JOINT SUPPORT - Suppressing Inflammatory Cytokines. BIOCURCU has been shown to exert powerful anti-inflammatory effects within the body, by inhibiting the overexpression of NF_kB ( Nuclear Factor _ kappa B ).
BIOCURCU may help in reduction of NF_kB's activation and inflammatory responses. NF_kB works like a switch to turn on INFLAMMATION. Because NF-kB's expression increases as we age, using BIOCURCU may help tomodulate the effects of NF_kB.
Other benefits of the Curcumin extract are: Cardiovascular support, Colon Health, Neuroprotective , Protecting against ESTROGEN mimicking chemicals, Promoting normal cell cycle growth, Potential activity against Cataract Formation,Promoting Digestive Tract Health and Lung's function.
