The people of India and Asia have taken Turmeric for thousands of years. It is used in curry, foods, and as a medicinal herb. The root is the part of the Turmeric plant that is utilized. The active ingredients in Turmeric are collectively called Curcuminoids, or Curcumin (kur-kyoo-min) for short. There have been hundreds clinical studies and research articles written on Curcumin studying a wide range of health conditions.
According to the research, Curcumin health benefits include: anti-oxidant, anti-carcinogenic, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, anti-fibrotic, anti-coagulant, gastro protective and anti-ulcer, and hepato (liver) and neuro protective.* Research has shown that it is helpful with the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, Arthritis, Cataracts, Cystic Fibrosis, Cardiovascular Disease including Myocardial Infarction, Diabetes, Multiple Sclerosis, etc.* It has been shown to inhibit Gall Bladder stone formation.* It is effective for relieving any type of pain due to its anti-inflammatory properties.*
The only problem with taking Curcumin is that it’s poorly absorbed into the cells due to its large particle size. The absorption rate is only around 3%. This is why most Health Practitioners recommend taking any where from 8,000 to 10,000 mg per day to be effective. One Planet Nutrition has found an answer to this problem. Nano Curcumin, which is a nano particle Curcumin from Turmeric extract, absorbs 40 to 60 times better than regular Curcumin. This formula represents the most cost-effective way to supplement with this critical nutrient. Studies show that 160 mg – 250 mg a day of this Turmeric compound is a therapeutic dose because it is 100% absorbed into the cells. Aqueous (water soluble) nanoparticle-encapsulated Nano Curcumin is around the size of 45nm, while biological absorption channels of the body’s cells have the size of 200nm. Therefore, Nano Curcumin absorbs quickly and completely, providing a much higher efficacy than Curcumin, which has a particle size of 250nm.
One Planet Nutrition’s Nano Curcumin provides 250 mg of aqueous (water soluble) nanoparticle-encapsulated Curcumin per veggie capsule. You only need to take one capsule per day because of its superior absorption.
