Life Extension Super Bio-Curcumin is a dietary supplement with a high-quality turmeric extract (Curcuma longa) 25:1, standardised at 95% of curcuminoids with necessary essential oils which exhibit a high biological activity. The proprietary extract BCM-95® Bio-Curcumin® is 7 times more absorbable than the extracts commonly used in the dietary supplement market.
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) - used as a spice; a perennial species native to India, contains many biologically active substances, i.e. curcuminoids (curcumin, desmethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin), ferulic acid and essential oil, including turmeron, bisabolene, guaine, zingiberene, atlantone, xantorisal and curcumene. Traditionally used in stomach and intestine inflammations, flatulence, hepatitis and menstrual problems.
Curcumin (diferuloylmethane) - curcumin's yellow colourant; a very promising therapeutic substance in the study phase; a natural polyphenolic compound which comes from the turmeric rhizome; it appears to have various types of biological activity, i.e. it affects the transcription and growth factors, receptors, cytokines and many enzymes, among which are kinases. Black pepper - to be more exact, its component, piperine - increases its bioavailability up to 20 times.
Curcumin exhibits anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Used as a drug in the conditions of liver inflammations and failure and insufficient bile secretion.
Natural anti-inflammatory agent
It is common knowledge that chronic inflammations lead to a whole range of diseases, including neoplasms, arteriosclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), multiple sclerosis (SM), nerve inflammations, asthma, the inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and gastritis.
The central mediator of an inflammation is the complex of the transcription factor NF-kB. Curcumin inhibits the activation of NF-kB, thus impeding the development of the inflammation, oncogenesis, metastasis and the development of many inflammatory diseases.
Curcumin vs. cancer
Curcumin's anticancer properties have been confirmed in in vitro experiments and in laboratory tests on animals, where it proved to be antiproliferatively active and induced apoptosis in various cancer cell lines. Additionally, because of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, it appears to be a compound which could potentially protect the heart from damage resulting from the activity of anticancer drugs.
For the protection of the circulatory system
Curcumin supports the normal functioning of the cardiovascular system through, above all, its ability to support the natural antioxidant potential of the organism, preventing the occurrence of oxidative stress or reducing its intensity.
It has been demonstrated that curcumin has the ability to neutralise reactive oxygen species, such as: superoxide anion O2•− and hydrogen peroxide H2O2, reduce oxidative protein and lipid damage and prevent the oxidation of low-density lipoproteins (LDL). Moreover, it stimulates the production of prostacyclin (PGI2), which inhibits platelet aggregation, has a relaxant effect on blood vessels and reduces blood pressure.
Reducing the activity of xanthine oxidase and myeloperoxidase, the generation of free radicals and lipid peroxidation, curcumin prevents myocardial ischemia and reduces the myocardial infarction complications. At the same time, it boosts the activity of antioxidant enzymes, i.e. SOD (superoxide dismutase) GPx (glutathione peroxidase with selenocysteine), glutathione S-transferase and catalase.
Other properties of curcumin
- it reduces the level of glucose, cholesterol and LDL
- it protects the liver from toxins
- it prevents digestion disorders and the occurrence of gastric ulcers
- it kills many pathogenic bacterial and fungal strains
- it protects dopaminergic neurons
- it has an immunosuppressive effect through inhibiting lymphocyte proliferation
To sum up, Life Extension Super Bio-Curcumin is a versatile products with many benefits for health. Curcumin supplementation is recommended as preventive healthcare, as well as in treating specific disorders under the guidance of a specialist.
It was assumed that for beneficial health effects should be applied at least 1000 mg of curcumin, which is why a minimum daily dose is 2 capsules. Curcumin is a compound soluble in fat, so you should take it with a fatty meal or with coconut oil or olive oil. Combining it with black pepper dramatically increases its bioavailability.

Essential oils occur in all plants, in various amounts. These are complicated compounds not fully identified, each containing hundreds of components in microscopic amounts. They are found in all parts of the plant: the root, flowers, leaves, stems and fruits. On the amount, composition and structure depend not only on the aromatic, but also therapeutic properties. They work mainly by inhalation , getting into the bloodstream and externally (through the skin while rubbing into the body, bath or compress). They show the highest activity in herbal infusions. Their action is enhanced by stabilizing in the laboratory. They should be used only under medical supervision, as they can cause allergies. They are used to treat patients with headaches, insomnia, lack of concentration, flu, catarrh, cold. The use of essential oils in herbal spices stimulates the digestive system (stimulates appetite and increases the secretion of gastric juices), allowing for better absorption of food. Also used in the production of cosmetics. Available at: www.muscle-zone.pl
