Side Effects/Warnings

Turmeric is used widely in Asian cuisine.  It is a traditional Indian culinary spice and Ayurvedic medicine that has been utilized for a wide array of medicinal purposes. Its most common traditional use has been to promote proper digestion. In the last decade, turmeric has received tremendous attention and numerous clinical studies have confirmed its health-promoting effects and specifically supporting a healthy inflammatory response.

Turmeric contains a group of compounds called curcuminoids that have shown to possess potent antioxidant properties. Curcumin is the main yellow constituent of turmeric and most biologically active as a potent antioxidant. Curcuminoids have also been shown to inhibit the metabolism of arachidonic acid (a proinflammatory fatty acid) by inhibiting cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and lipoxygenase enzymes. Collectively, turmeric’s ability to support a healthy inflammatory response is a function of its antioxidant properties and inhibitory effect on mechanisms that support inflammation. Curcumin Complex features Sabinsa’s Curcumin C3 Complex®; made up of three main chemical compounds: curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin, collectively known as curcuminoids. Curcumin C3 Complex was the only turmeric chosen by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) for clinical studies.
