Health Benefits at a Glance:
Like its "little-brother", Curcumin Elite™ Turmeric Extract, Advanced Curcumin Elite™ Turmeric Extract, Ginger & Turmerones is packed with highly-bioavailable free curcuminoid compounds. The main difference between these two formulas is that Life Extension® has added extra compounds to this formula by adding turmerones from turmeric oil and a potent ginger extract to supercharge the health benefits. The result is a state-of-the-art curcumin supplement.
Why it Works:
Life Extension® has overhauled all their curcumin supplements with a formula that delivers 45,5 times more free curcuminoids and provide 270 times better absorption, compared to standard formulas.
To boost this formula, Life Extension® have enhanced the health benefits of this unique supplement by adding extra nutrients that promote the health benefits of this formula.
Phospholipids boost curcumin’s cellular absorption, while standardized ginger compounds and turmerones from turmeric oil complement its ability to help promote a healthy inflammatory response. The extra compounds also enhance curcumin’s other health benefits [5,6]. Therefore, the ingredients in this formula can:
Inhibit inflammatory factors in the body
Curcumin extract inhibits inflammatory factors, thereby promoting joint and vital organ health [7,8]. The extracts in this formula also inhibit the metabolism of certain types of inflammatory compounds. These include arachidonic acid, as well as the activities of cyclooxygenase, lipoxygenase and cytokines. Curcumin’s ability to inhibit these compounds promotes a healthy inflammatory response [9-11].
Offer support from antioxidants, support healthy cholesterol levels, cardiovascular health & more
This formula also offers protection from antioxidants [23-25]. Moreover, it also supports healthy cholesterol levels already within normal range, inhibits inflammatory factors to promote cardiovascular health and more [9,26]
Support brain- and immune system health
Curcumin extract promotes immune system health by inhibiting inflammatory factors in the body [12-14]. It also offers antioxidative support. It can even benefit your brain and mind. Studies suggest that it supports healthy brain function and also offers neuro-protective benefits [9,15-17].
Promote digestive, joint and pancreatic health
Research has suggested that curcumin helps promote healthy bowel function as well as joint health [18-21]. Furthermore, it can also support healthy pancreatic function by encouraging pancreatic islet health [9,22].
The Science Behind the Product:
As soon as curcuminoid compounds enter the body, they undergo conjugation. This is a normal chemical reaction where one compound attaches to another. But conjugation is a problem, if you want to get the most out of your curcumin supplement. That’s because conjugated curcuminoids do not necessarily provide the same health benefits as non-conjugated ones [1,2].
This formula, however, protects curcuminoids from conjugation. It does so by combining curcumin with galactomannans, a type of fiber derived from fenugreek seeds.
Clinical and pre-clinical data shows that combining the two produces 45.5 times more bioavailability and broader tissue distribution of free curcuminoids compared to unformulated curcumin [3,4].
In a clinical study, more than 70% of total plasma curcuminoids were still in their free form five hours after they had been ingested . This, in turn, translates into more comprehensive whole-body health support from this supplement formula.
