Curcumin was first used by Indians over 3000 years ago in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Modern science has found that this extract from the common spice turmeric has remarkable qualities as an antioxidant.82-84 Over time, as our cells continue to be affected by free radicals, or oxidants, organs begin to degenerate and aging accelerates. The body has built-in defense mechanisms to protect itself from free radical damage, but eventually, aging depletes the body’s ability to keep oxidants at bay.
Curcumin can also help maintain normal healthy platelet function and the normal process of bile excretion.85-87
New studies have tied inflammation to overexpression of a protein molecule called nuclear factor-kappa beta (NFkB). NFkB acts like a switch to turn on genes that produce the body’s inflammatory responses. Because NFkB’s expression increases in aging adults, scientists have sought ways to modulate NFkB and its effects in the body.
Curcumin has been shown to exert powerful effects within the body,109,110 Curcumin inhibits overexpression of NFkB and acts on substances that activate NFkB.* For example, by binding iron and copper in brain tissue, curcumin reduces NFkB activation.
Curcumin’s multifaceted effects include protecting against estrogen-mimicking chemicals, protecting against damaging free radicals, and promoting normal cell cycle growth.*
