Research has discovered that curcumin may inhibit the activity and synthesis of cyclooxygenase and 5-lipooxygenase (5-LOX), which are enzymes related to inflammation.

Also,Turmeric Extract blocks NF-kB, a molecule that travels into the nuclei of cells and turns on genes related to inflammation. NF-kB is believed to play a major role in many chronic diseases

In one study conducted on rats, researchers discovered that Turmeric Extract profoundly helped reduce joint inflammation.

Brain Health


Curcumin has been found to support working memory, calmness, and satisfaction in coping with mental strain. Also, Turmeric Extract is attributed to increasing the brain hormone BDNF, which improves the function of neurons, encourages their growth, and strengthens and protects them.

One of the key features of a brain affected by Alzheimer’s disease is the buildup of clumps of a protein called amyloid-beta. Studies show that turmeric extract can cross the blood-brain barrier and has the potential to help clear these plaques.


Studies have shown that curcumin can reduce angiogenesis (growth of new blood vessels in tumors), metastasis (spread of cancer), as well as contributing to the death of cancerous cells.

Multiple studies have shown that Turmeric Extract can reduce the growth of cancerous cells, Inhibit the synthesis of a protein believed to play a role in the formation of tumors, and impede the transformation of cells from normal to tumor.
