FDA Grants GRAS Status for Curcumin C3 Complex


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/01/2014 -- Curcumin C3 Complex® is the most potent form of curcumin available and it now has the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) coveted GRAS status. The “generally regarded as safe” designation means consumers who purchase a curcumin supplement utilizing the Curcumin C3 Complex® can do so with confidence.

“A product that has GRAS status means it’s been examined, tested, evaluated and considered safe by experts,” said VitaBreeze spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan. “It requires no testing before being offered in the marketplace.”

Manufactured by the Sabinsa Corporation, the company’s Curcumin C3 Complex® underwent stringent examination by an independent panel of international experts in multiple disciplines. The panel’s professionals explored multiple aspects and data connected with the product before issuing its GRAS designation.

Curcumin C3 Complex® is the most effective form of curcumin, the active ingredient in the culinary spice turmeric. Its properties as an anti-inflammatory are well documented and are most often used to ease the pain of arthritis.

Curcumin also excels as an antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals that damage cells and DNA. Free radicals accumulate over time, eventually overwhelming the body’s ability to repair itself fast enough. Free radicals are responsible for signs of aging that includes lines, wrinkles and the loss of taut skin.

Curcumin C3 Complex® is the most potent form of curcumin currently available. The curcumin found in turmeric continues to surprise researchers with its many properties. In addition to neutralizing free radicals and relieving inflammation, it’s also believed to be effective in supporting the immune system against a wide variety of bacteria, fungi and viral invaders.

In an article published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry, researchers found that curcumin almost tripled the ability of the immune system to fight bacterial, fungal and viral agents that the body had never previously encountered. The ability to enhance antibody responses was supported by research published in the Journal of Clinical Immunology.

The GRAS status awarded to Curcumin C3 Complex® allows consumers to purchase curcumin supplements containing the formula with confidence. Safe and effective, even for long-term use, curcumin provides powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, along with support for the immune system (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI).
