Curcumin is a powerful anti-inflammatory* and for years LIDTKE has sourced the curcumin in our formulas from Sabinsa. There is a lot of synthetic curcumin on the market and we want to be sure we are sourcing authentic material of the highest quality and in an ethical and sustainable way.
Turmeric is a root that has been used as a spice for thousands of years, and it has long been suspected that it plays a role in the health and longevity of the populations which consume a high amount of turmeric, such as in India.
Curcumin is the most active ingredient in turmeric, and has been studied extensively for its many health benefits. This curcumin extract is widely held as being "complete" because it contains all three of the curcuminoids observed in whole turmericcurcumin (75%), demethoxycurcumin (17%), and bisdemethoxycurcumin (3%), standardized for 95% total curcuminoids. It is also the exact one used in dozens of studies.
One contribution of Sabinsa is pairing curcumin with Bioperine®, which has been shown to increase the bioavailability of curcumin by 2,000% in humans.1 Enhanced blood serum concentration of CoQ10, iron, selenium, carotenoids and various vitamins have also been observed.
Bioperine® should not be used by everyone, so please read the precautions below. Intense clinical studies have shown health supporting potentials of curcuminoids:
Supports healthy cholesterol levels*
Supports healthy blood sugar levels*
Blocks platelet aggregation*
Protects liver from toxic compounds*
Stimulates macrophages to clear the central nervous system*
Specifically inhibited virus replication in tested viruses*
As a result of clinical trials, the Curcumin Complete 95 formula is used by some hospitals to provide additional support to patients.
Whatever the reason you decide to use Curcumin Complete 95, we at LIDTKE truly hope you benefit from the innate power of curcuminoids, one of nature's finest antioxidants.
