Curcumin has become one of the most widely researched and supplemented herbal extracts in the world. As the active ingredient found in turmeric root, curcumin has a wide variety of health applications. Curcumin’s health benefits can generally be attributed to its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant actions, inhibiting the action of NF-Kappa B and decreasing TNF-alpha levels for chronic inflammatory conditions.
Clinically, curcumin is best known for its ability to reduce pain, decrease stiffness and increase range of motion in chronic pain conditions such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Research trials have also shown that curcumin can benefit other conditions with obvious inflammatory processes like inflammatory bowel disease and post-exercise muscle soreness. However, an explosion of recent research has found that curcumin can benefit conditions as diverse as mood disorders, poor cognition, hypertriglyceridemia, diabetic blood sugar regulation and allergic rhinitis.
The problem with curcumin is that it is poorly bioavailable in its natural form. This limits its potential as an effective health supplement. Fortunately, Cyto-Matrix’s Curcummatrix represents a significant technical advancement by providing an extremely concentrated curcumin in a liposomal formula that is uniquely soy-free and highly bioavailable.
Each Curcummatrix softgel contains 42mg of curcumin in a 60:1 extract to provide a dried herb equivalent of 2,520mg of curcumin. Moreover, the liposomal formula actually increases the bioavailability by 7.5x when compared to a standard curcumin extract and by 5x when compared to soy-based liposomal curcumins. Bioavailability studies have shown peak blood levels of curcumin reach 333 ng/mL after 5 hours with 2 capsules of Curcummatrix. This is significantly greater than most curcumin formulas, with peak blood levels typically only reaching <50 ng/mL. Collectively, the concentrated curcumin extract and unique liposomal formula makes Curcummatrix a predictable and dependable option for acute and chronic inflammatory processes.
