Curcumin Description

Steadfast Nutrition’s CURCUMIN provides 500 mg of curcumin and 5 mg of piperine, which helps boost immunity, reduce inflammation, improve bone and joint pain, boost skin, heart, and brain health, and maintain gut health.

The curcumin extract (turmeric) in Steadfast Nutrition’s CURCUMIN is derived from the rhizomes of curcuma longa, a horizontal underground stem that sends out shoots and roots of turmeric, a vibrant yellow spice from India, commonly used in cooking. Curcumin accounts for turmeric’s health-boosting, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. It supports heart function and blood circulation and helps maintain skin, joint, bone, and liver health. However, turmeric contains only 2-5% curcumin, making supplements a good option.

Steadfast Nutrition’s CURCUMIN contains piperine, a substance found in black pepper. Curcumin has poor bioavailability across the blood-brain barrier- piperine enhances curcumin absorption by up to 2,000% and has anti-inflammatory properties, relieving nausea and headaches. Combining Curcumin with Piperine increases its potential health benefits.

Health Benefits of CURCUMIN


1. Promotes Comfort and Flexibility 

Studies have shown that curcumin reduces certain key inflammation-promoting, promoting comfort and flexibility without any side effects. It is a boon for athletes and fitness enthusiasts to support muscle recovery and joint health.

2. Supports Healthy Joints and  Bones 

Antioxidants play a role in keeping our joints healthy. The human body uses them to combat free radicals- unstable particles created as a result of millions of chemical reactions in the body that can cause oxidative stress and damage on a cellular level. Research shows blood and fluid in joints of patients suffering from joint discomfort have a higher activity of free radicals  and lower levels of antioxidants- curcumin is in antioxidants that support the joints by combating inflammation and free radicals due to its chemical structure.

3. Promotes Youthful and Radiant Skin

Curcumin, a powerful, natural antioxidant, helps reduce and neutralise free radicals, which may damage and destroy cells and DNA, accelerating ageing. Since most ageing disorders are driven by oxidative stress, CURCUMIN can be a beneficial daily supplement for ageing adults.

4. Boosts Immunity 

The immune system is a network of organs, tissues, and cells that work together to protect our body- curcumin helps enhance the responses of antibodies and cells within the immune system and may help down-regulate the expression of pro-inflammatory substances.

5. Promotes Heart Health 

Studies have shown curcumin helps reduce the oxidation of low-density lipoprotein- oxidised LDL can react with surrounding tissues, leading to inflammation and organ damage. Free radicals disrupt oxidised LDL, which can produce inflammation in the cardiovascular system- studies suggest the antioxidant effects of curcumin can help fight free radicals and protect the heart.

6. Improves Gut Health 

Curcumin boosts gut health by encouraging the growth of gut-friendly bacterial strains such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli, among others, and reducing the pathogenic strain of bacteria. Studies have shown treatment with curcumin decreases microbial richness and diversity, particularly that of a species found as cancer-related. 

7. Reduces Inflammation

The polyphenolic components of curcumin help reduce inflammation by suppressing the activity of 'NF-κB', a protein complex that causes inflammation. 

8. Improves Eye Health

Several clinical studies suggest the polyphenolic component of curcumin helps treat various eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataract, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, corneal neovascularisation, corneal wound healing, and dry eye disease.

9. Improves Digestion

Curcumin calms the digestive system, relieving gas, bloating, and other stomach and bowel issues. It works differently than probiotics or enzymes, naturally soothing the gut and reducing the overproduction of acid.

10. Supports Liver Health

The liver helps stabilise and balance the maintenance of the body. Liver health can be directly impacted by oxidative stress and pro-inflammatory substances- curcumin may help boost antioxidant defences to help the liver detoxify and restore balance.

11. Supports Brain Health

The connection between inflammation and cognitive health cannot be overstated. Neurons are especially susceptible to inflammation. The release of inflammatory compounds in the body can be neurotoxic. Curcumin may help protect those precious brain cells.
