Curcumin Supplements Vary Widely in Strength and Efficacy


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/23/2014 -- With the myriad of curcumin dietary supplements available, many individuals purchase one of the first products they encounter. Few people know what the optimum strength for a curcumin supplement is or how other ingredients can affect its efficacy.

Curcumin dietary supplements are over-the-counter products taken to enhance joint health and provide relief from arthritis pain. Curcumin is a botanical with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It works at the cellular level to provide the body with needed nutrients that support soft tissues to reduce inflammation that causes pain.

All curcumin supplements are not created equal. Curcumin supplements vary in strength, potency and manufacturing practices. Dietary supplements aren’t regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and labels may not contain full disclosure on ingredients. They may contain fillers, preservatives and elements that can cause allergies.

Most supplement manufacturers offer a 500mg capsule and recommend taking two to obtain a daily dose of 1,000mg. Consumers seeking the optimum dosage to address joint pain should look for a product that offers 750mg of curcumin. Clinical research, field trials and laboratory tests indicate that 400 to 750mg of curcumin should be taken per day by adults for those experiencing a mild to moderate level of pain.

The patented Curcumin C3 Complex® is the most recognized and trusted source of curcumin. Supplements containing this extra potent formula are believed to provide an additional anti-inflammatory and antioxidant boost, and offers support for the immune system. Curcumin supplements provide individuals with an alternative to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) that can cause detrimental side effects.

From ancient times, healers have understood that combining specific ingredients increases the effectiveness of the mixture. A product that includes the black pepper extract BioPerine® facilitates the body’s ability to absorb curcumin, allowing it to begin working faster.

“Our product provides all of these at a great price,” said VitaBreeze spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan. “Each capsule of our turmeric curcumin supplement contains 750mg of Curcumin C3 Complex and 5mg of BioPerine for optimum results.”

Curcumin dietary supplements provide consumers around the world with an alternative to costly and potentially dangerous prescription medications. Individuals seeking relief with a curcumin formula should select their supplement carefully to ensure it contains Curcumin C3 Complex® and BioPerine® for the greatest level of effectiveness.
