Turmeric is a traditional Indian culinary spice and
Ayurvedic medicine that has been utilized for a wide array
of medicinal purposes. Its most common traditional use
has been to promote proper digestion. Even the German
Commission E Monograph on turmeric describes it as an
approved medicinal herb for dyspeptic (indigestion)
conditions. In the last decade, turmeric has received
tremendous attention and numerous clinical studies have
confirmed its health-promoting effects and specifically
supporting a healthy inflammatory response.
Antioxidant nutrients are necessary to protect the body
from the destructive effects of harmful molecules that
cause oxidation. Because these molecules are highly
reactive, they are called reactive species and have a strong
tendency to grab an electron from other molecules and
damage delicate cellular structures, unsaturated fatty acids
and even DNA. Thus, the role of antioxidants is to prevent
this damage by balancing the pro-oxidative/anti-oxidative
states of the body. Oxidative stress is a term given when
oxidation outpaces the body’s ability to neutralize free
radicals and is a key factor in the inflammatory process.
These reactive radicals and oxidants may injure cells and
tissue directly via oxidative degradation as well as injure
cells indirectly by altering signaling processes that exist
within the tissue to be pro-inflammatory. Antioxidants
may help play a role in regulating inflammation by
neutralizing free radicals and contributing to a normal and
healthy inflammatory response.
Turmeric contains a group of compounds called
curcuminoids that have shown to possess potent
antioxidant properties. Curcumin is the main yellow
constituent of turmeric and most biologically active as a
potent antioxidant. Curcuminoids have also been shown to
inhibit the metabolism of arachidonic acid (a proinflammatory fatty acid) by inhibiting cyclooxygenase-2
(COX-2) and lipoxygenase enzymes. Collectively,
turmeric’s ability to support a healthy inflammatory
response is a function of its antioxidant properties and
inhibitory effect on mechanisms that support
inflammation. Curcumin Complex features Sabinsa’s
Curcumin C3 Complex®; made up of three main chemical
compounds: curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and
bisdemethoxycurcumin, collectively known as
Curcumin C3 Complex was the only turmeric chosen by
the National Cancer Institute (NCI) for clinical studies.
