Experts Say Curcumin Neutralizes Free Radicals That Contribute to Aging


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/21/2014 -- Curcumin, the active ingredient in the spice turmeric, is attributed with a variety of benefits, but one of the most overlooked uses is for skin health. The cosmetic industry incorporates curcumin in a variety of products, and the same effect can be obtained with a curcumin supplement.

“One of curcumin’s most amazing properties is that of an antioxidant,” said VitaBreeze spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan. “An antioxidant can help rejuvenate skin naturally.”
Free radicals are the bane of those who want to appear younger than their chronological age. They damage cells and impair the body’s natural ability to repair itself. Curcumin is a botanical that attacks free radicals and neutralizes them.

Collagen levels decrease as individuals age, leading to fine lines, wrinkles and saggy skin. In clinical trials, curcumin was found to enhance collagen production, a protein that keeps skin supple, gives it elasticity and a youthful appearance. Information published by Advanced Orthomolecular Research also indicates the herb’s many abilities may hold promise for those with cancer.

Curcumin is a potent anti-inflammatory that can inhibit the body’s inflammatory response to conditions that include acne, psoriasis and vitiligo. Research studies involving human subjects have determined that curcumin is an effective antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal that can accelerate healing.

Curcumin has been used extensively by Asian and East Indian medical practitioners and is still an integral part of a medical practitioners’ repertoire. Today, consumers in India can purchase bandages with turmeric added as a disinfectant.

Experts recommend a 750mg daily dosage of curcumin. It’s essential that any curcumin supplement include a black pepper extract to enhance absorption. Curcumin passes quickly through the digestive system and a black pepper extract is essential in getting maximum benefit from curcumin. It can increase the rate of curcumin absorption by up to 2,000 percent for healthy skin.

Black pepper extract is also known as piperine and has its own medicinal qualities. Studies have determined that it can block the formation of new fat cells, enhance cognitive function and has anti-depressive properties. Research has shown it can improve the thermogenesis process for burning calories and improves the efficacy of nutritional supplements
