REVIEW OF BIOGLAN HIGH STRENGTH CURCUMIN SUPPLEMENT

Turmeric is the spice du jour due to its ancient health benefits. But the active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin makes up only 2- 5% of turmeric. So if you were eating turmeric primarily for the health benefits, you would need to eat at least 10g of turmeric a day. Curcumin from turmeric is not very bioavailable so much of this would not be absorbed or would be metabolized very quickly. Therefore, a high strength curcumin supplement is preferred to supplement for health benefits.

 

Turmeric is the spice du jour due to its ancient health benefits. But the active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin makes up only 2- 5% of turmeric. So if you were eating turmeric primarily for the health benefits, you would need to eat at least 10g of turmeric a day. Curcumin from turmeric is not very bioavailable so much of this would not be absorbed or would be metabolised very quickly. Therefore, a high strength curcumin extract is preferred to supplement for health benefits.

Bioglan’s new high strength Active Curcumin supplement is one of the highest strength turmeric or curcumin currently on the market.  Bioglan Active Curcumin formulation uses a 95% curcumin extract and contains a high strength curcuminoid input- 600mg per tablet. Most human studies used 400mg – 600mg of active curcumin with demonstrable results for many different conditions without too many side effects.

As curcumin is not orally bioavailable, Bioglan have added BioPerine (black pepper extract) to help increase the absorption of Curcumin in the body. The formulation also includes additional Copper, Vitamin D & Vitamin C.

Whilst there are many conditions with which a curcumin supplement health can help, it is particularly recommended for joint health and is recommended by Arthritis UK. It has strong anti-inflammatory properties which explains how it might alleviate joint conditions such as osteoarthritis. These anti-inflammatory properties may be protective against cancer progression. Curcumin has also been shown to reduce cognitive decline, help protect the heart, reduce lipid and plaque levels in arteries and reducing the risk of diabetes. There are some test tube studies which have suggested that high doses of curcumin can suppress the immune system but this has not been shown in human studies.

Bioglan Active Curcumin 30 Tablets is now available online at the Bioglan website or in-store at Holland and Barrett for £24.99.
