Turmeric (Curcuma longa)
- Joint pain and other pain
Curcumin – Superior Relief from Pain and Inflammation
from turmeric root is well known for its anti-inflammatory and pain
relieving properties, which are well supported by clinical studies.
These studies have shown that curcumin is highly effective for improving
joint mobility and for reducing stiffness, swelling and pain. Due to
its widespread mechanisms of action, curcumin has been studied for
conditions such as cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, irritable bowel disease
(IBD), colitis, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, viral infections such as
hepatitis, drug-resistant bacterial infections, healing of skin
conditions, and more.
However, until recently, very high doses of
curcumin (over 8g per day) have been required to achieve these results.
Furthermore, many products on the market can be highly misleading, and
may not be effective at all! Being aware of what is actually in each
product and taking advantage of the latest advances in nutraceutical
technology can help to ensure that you are getting the best possible
curcumin supplement, and therefore the most effective relief from pain
Why is CurcuVIVA better?
is based on the latest in curcumin technology, and provides the most
bioavailable curcumin extract on the market. This new technology uses
tiny curcumin nano-particles encased in a lipid (fat soluble) coating.
This patented Solid Lipid Particle TechnologyTM improves
bioavailability by more than 100 times compared to ordinary curcumin!
This means that each 80 mg capsule of CurcuVIVA is equivalent to 8 g
or about 20 capsules of a 95% curcumin extract, and around 60 capsules
of a 750 mg turmeric root extract! The result of all of this is a fast
acting, highly effective curcumin supplement in a dose of just one
capsule per day!
The Problems with Other Turmeric and Curcumin Products
is essential to understand that turmeric root and curcumin are not the
same thing! Curcumin is only a small component of turmeric root, but it
is the component that is associated with health benefits. The vast
majority of clinical studies have been conducted using curcumin, not
turmeric root! As such, most turmeric formulas, which contain as little
as 2% curcumin, are essentially useless!
problems do not stop there. Even if you are getting a high proportion of
curcumin (like in a 95% curcumin extract) it is important to consider
the bioavailability of the product. Curcumin on its own is absorbed very
poorly by the body, meaning that it has extremely low bioavailability.
Low bioavailability means low effectiveness. Studies suggest that you
need to take more than 8g of a regular 95% curcumin extract before it
becomes detectable in your blood! Taking this many capsules per day just
to achieve an effective dose is highly inconvenient and costly!
is currently being heavily studied for use as an adjunct to
conventional cancer treatments. Unfortunately, most of the studies have
noted minimal results despite promising in vitro and animal studies.
Researchers have recognized that the cause for the poor results is
curcumin’s poor bioavailability.
and colleagues did a safety and bioavailability study on healthy
volunteers and patients with non-responsive bone cancer. Subjects were
given doses between 400 and 1,200 mg of curcumin in solid lipid particle
form (equivalent to 3 to 9 capsules of Curcumin Active). All doses
showed significant absorption into the bloodstream over 8 hours with no
adverse events. This is especially significant since previous studies
giving 8,000-12,000 mg of pure regular curcumin barely showed any blood
levels or clinical improvements. In addition, the 1,200 mg dose
produced blood levels of curcumin necessary to reduce isoprostanes,
TNF-α, and amyloid-β, which are markers for diseases like cancer and
is also significant interest in its ability to reduce amyloid-β plaque,
which is thought to be a causative factor of Alzheimer’s disease. In
vitro and animal studies have shown that curcumin can significantly
reduce levels of amyloid-β and preserve Alzheimer model animal memory.
Finally, a recent human study has shown that just 80 mg of curcumin can
reduce amyloid-β in humans. The curcumin that was finally able to do so
was Longvida® curcumin SLP, and in just one month.
Longvida Curcumin in Humans
human trial on curcumin showed statistically significant effects on
clinical endpoints in a healthy population. The fact that such a low
dose (80 mg) was needed to achieve effects in only 30 days is an
interesting and unique finding as well, and adds to the substantial
amount of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data compiled on
Longvida®. The results of the study suggest that curcumin can produce
beneficial effects in people who are without immediate disease states.
The study was conducted on 38 healthy middle aged people between the age
of 40 and 60 who were either given a dose of 80 mg/day of Longvida®
curcumin extract for four weeks or were a part of the 19 person placebo
group. The study is particularly interesting because the relatively
small dose of curcumin, from Longvida® which was used, exerted a variety
of health promoting effects leading researchers to presume that a
significant amount of the curcumin was absorbed, although not tested
Blood sample readings collected from test subjects to
assess nitric oxide and sICAM molecules which are relevant to assessing
cardiovascular risk and related to blood pressure and atherosclerosis,
were notably affected by the curcumin. Both readings corresponded to a
decreased risk of cardiovascular disease. The study also indicated that
curcumin may have a positive effect on liver health maintenance as was
noted from the reduction of indicators used to mark liver injury.
Participants had lowered levels of triglycerides which relates to other
research demonstrating that cholesterol could potentially be lowered in
relatively healthy persons given higher dosages of the substance, thus
benefiting those with or at risk of having cardiovascular disease.
other markers of inflammation and free radicals/toxic species that
cause inflammation and damage to cells were also significantly lowered.
Both direct and indirect antioxidant actions of curcumin were evident in
the subjects; these findings are consistent with in vitro and animal
studies used to measure increases in curcumin induced antioxidant enzyme
supplements on the market contain the curcumin extract of turmeric or
just straight turmeric extract. However, many of these are poorly
absorbed and offer little value in terms of therapeutic benefit due to
their poor bioavailability.
New Technology – Better Products!
the last ten years a great deal of research has been done to develop
formulations that improve the bioavailability of curcumin. The goal has
been to deliver more of the active molecules to the body in a much lower
daily dose; as few as one to three capsules per day. There have been a
number of technologies developed, but the one that has provided the most
compelling evidence is nano-technology.
Longvida curcumin was introduced to Canada exclusively by
AOR in 2011. CurcuVIVA’s advanced technology allows it to be absorbed
very rapidly by the body, meaning that it is an excellent choice for
rapid pain relief. Furthermore, with an effective dose of just one capsule per day CurcuVIVA is more convenient and more economical than most other curcumin supplements out there!
AOR’s CurcuVIVA is based on this proven technology and has the following advantages:
tested with results published in 2010 in the prestigious Journal of
Agricultural and Food Chemistry. In the study, patients with cancer of
the bone experienced few to no adverse effects and good tolerability of
the equivalent of up to 15 capsules of CurcuVIVA.
- A 100-fold increase in bioavailability compared to regular curcumin
- Patented by the University of California
- Published study showing positive effects in reducing beta-amyloid levels in humans at 80 mg in just one month
consists of solid lipid particles (SLP) which are tiny nano-sized (1
billionth of a meter) particles that have a protected layer that
provides a phenomenal increase in stability, potency and effectiveness.
Unlike regular curcumin that is easily broken down by stomach acids,
Curcumin Fast Relief particles are resistant to acid breakdown. Even
more important is the fact that these tiny particles are absorbed very
rapidly. This means that they deliver all of the health benefits of
curcumin, including pain relief, reduced inflammation, antioxidant
properties and other effects much faster than any other curcumin
