What is curcumin?

.

Curcumin is a bioactive component of curcumin with potential anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and antioxidant effects. Studies suggest its efficacy in neurodegenerative diseases, heart conditions, and in offsetting oxidative stress. Curcumin is poorly absorbed, but its absorption is increased by, for example,  piperine (by 2000%)and.

Where does curcumin occur?

.

Curcumin is the main active ingredient in the rhizome of turmeric (also known as long oyster or Indian saffron), a plant belonging to the ginger family. Curcumin gives turmeric its characteristic intense yellow colour. It is therefore often used in the food industry as a colouring agent e.g. for pasta.

.

Curcumin - properties and effects

.

Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. Research indicates that it is effective in preventing and supporting the treatment of chronic conditions such as heart disease and cancer. Curcumin may also support brain function, reduce the risk of neurodegenerative diseases and alleviate symptoms of depression and arthritisand.

What effects does curcumin have?

.

Reduces inflammation

.

Inflammation is the body's natural response to infections, for example. It is a kind of alarm that mobilises your immune system to fight back. There's nothing wrong with this - what's more, it's essential for fighting off potential illnesses properly.

The problem arises when inflammation does not subside, i.e. it becomes chronic. Then it is risky for health and can lead to serious diseases such as atherosclerosis, hypertension or type 2 diabetesand. Curcumin is one of the best anti-inflammatory agents.

.

Firstly, it blocks signals in the body that fuel inflammation. And secondly, it helps fight free radicals - the unstable particles that are created in excessive inflammation and cause damage to your cellsand.

There's more.

In addition, curcumin helps to reduce symptoms of inflammation. This is particularly important for gastrointestinal conditions such as ulcers or bowel disease .

What does the research say?

.

A study was conducted on dozens of obese teenage girls in 2019. The patients were divided into two groups - one took curcumin and the other a placebo. After 10 weeks of regular supplementation, group one had both lower inflammation and levels of oxidative stress in the bodyand.

Shows antioxidant activity

.

Free radicals are unstable molecules that are formed in the body as a result of various metabolic processes and from exposure to environmental pollutants.

Excess free radicals lead to oxidative stress, which is one of the causes of many chronic diseases such as diabetes and cancer.

Curcumin protects your cells by combating free radicals. What's more, it supports the body's overall antioxidant activity, which improves your natural defence capabilities.

It doesn't stop there, curcumin also has a positive effect on the concentration of glutathione in the body. This is a compound that is considered by many to be one of the most powerful antioxidantsand.

A meta-analysis of four studies conducted on 308 patients in 2019 examined the effects of curcumin on oxidative stress. The mean age of the participants was 28 years, the duration of supplementation was 67 days and the dose of curcumin was 645 mg per day. The meta-analysis showed that curcumin increased the body's antioxidant defences and also reduced malondialdehyde (MDA) levels, which is considered an indicator of oxidative stressand.

Promotes heart health

.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. The World Health Organisation reports that 17.9 million people die each year from cardiovascular conditions. That's about 49,000 people per day, 2,000 people per hour, 34 existences per minute - that's how many people died when you read the previous paragraphand.

Healthy living is the main way to prevent heart disease. However, research suggests that curcumin may also be an effective helper.

His anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects counteract the development of atherosclerosis. This is a heart condition that causes abnormalities that result in restricted blood flowand.

What's more, studies have shown that curcumin can improve the function of the endothelium, the layer of cells lining the inside of your blood vessels. Its malfunction is one of the main factors leading to the development of heart diseaseand.

A study of 39 healthy postmenopausal men and women, aged 45-74 years, found that giving them curcumin (2000 mg/day for 12 weeks) improved endothelial function in small arteries (by 37%) and large arteries (by 36%) .

Can support cancer treatment

.

Cancer treatment is difficult and complicated, which is why doctors are constantly looking for new, effective therapies. Among the natural substances that promise results in this area is curcumin.

Curcumin.

Probably it has the ability to target and destroy cancer cells without damaging healthy ones. Studies conducted show that it may have the ability to induce apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in cancer cellsand.

Curcumin for cancer is also able to inhibit angiogenesis, or the formation of new blood vessels. Cancer cells often use angiogenesis to gain access to nutrients and oxygen, enabling them to grow and spread rapidly in the body. Curcumin's inhibition of angiogenesis limits the tumour's ability to growand.

Last, but not least, is curcumin's ability to inhibit metastasis, the process by which cancer cells spread to other parts of the body .

.

Despite promising research results, it is important to emphasise that the use of curcumin is not a stand-alone anti-cancer therapy and cannot replace standard cancer treatment.

It is, however, a valuable supplement that can help in the fight against this dangerous disease. As always, any use of supplements, especially in the context of a serious illness, should be discussed in detail with your doctor.

Testing

A 30-day study conducted on men with colon cancer lesions examined the effect of supplementation with 4 grams of curcumin daily. The cancerous lesions of patients taking this dose decreased by 40%and.

.
Curcumin may interact with anticancer drugs, so taking supplementation should be discussed with your healthcare provider.

Inhibits the development of Alzheimer's disease

.

Alzheimer's disease is a chronic degenerative brain disorder for which no cure has yet been invented. However, as it turns out, curcumin may play an important role in supporting people with this disease.

Research suggests that curcumin crosses the blood-brain barrier. The effect of this is to support nerve cells under attack from free radicals, as well as fighting inflammationand.

Furthermore, one of the medical symptoms of Alzheimer's disease is the accumulation of so-called amyloid plaques in the body. These are the structural changes that make Alzheimer's disease so dangerous. Preliminary research suggests that curcumin may promote the removal of these plaques from the patient's bodyand.

Reduces symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis

.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease that attacks the joints and beyond. It manifests as pain, inflammation, and stiffness and swelling in the joints and feetand.

Some studies suggest, that curcumin supplementation is more effective in supporting the treatment of this condition than anti-inflammatory drugs. Other trials, on the other hand, have focused on symptoms and found that taking it reduces painful symptomsand. However, according to MSc Pharmacy, one should be careful:

.
.
Anti-inflammatory drugs used in rheumatoid arthritis - with prolonged supplementation - can cause ulcerative gastroenteritis.

Supports the treatment of depression

.

Depression is a common mental disorder, affecting approximately 5% of the world's adult population. It is associated with a significant decrease in mood, loss of interest in daily activities and sleep disturbancesand.

Research suggests that curcumin may be an effective treatment aid for depression. One study divided patients into three groups:

  • taking an antidepressant drug,
  • .
  • supplementing with 1000 mg of curcumin daily,
  • .
  • using both an antidepressant drug and a curcumin supplement,
  • .

The group that took the supplement had a better sense of wellbeing after week 6 of the study than the group that took the drug alone. In contrast, in the group that took both the drug and the supplement, the effects were even betterand.

.
Curcumin's mental enhancement effects probably depend on its effects on the microbiota-gut-brain axis.

Helps women with premenstrual syndrome (PMS)

.

Premenstrual syndrome manifests as fatigue, mood changes, and sleep or concentration disorders. Research suggests that curcumin may be an effective agent to support the treatment of this condition.

One study evaluated the effects of curcumin on PMS symptoms. The study involved a total of 70 women, who were divided into two groups: one took curcumin capsules, and the other a placebo, for seven days before menstruation and for three days after menstruation - for three consecutive menstrual cyclesand.

The study was conducted by the authors of the study.

After three cycles, the average severity of PMS symptoms in the curcumin-taking group decreased compared with the placebo group .

.

Positive effects on weight loss

.

While curcumin alone is not the best weight-loss remedy, with the addition of piperine it can really do a lot (below on why you should combine the two).

In 2015, a study was conducted in which participants were given 8 mg of piperine and 800 mg of curcumin daily. After 30 days, a reduction in body weight and waist and hip circumference was noted in the subjectsand.

Remember, however, that curcumin is not a typical weight-loss agent and should never be used exclusively for this purpose. It can only be a support to a proper diet and physical activity.

Curcumin - what else does it work forand?

.
    .
  • Helps the function liver.
  • May relieve post-workout muscle soreness.
  • .
  • Slows the aging process of the body.
  • .
  • Promotes the digestive system.
  • .
  • Provides a positive effect on the cardiovascular system.
  • .
  • Promotes lipid metabolism.
  • .

Applications of curcumin - where is it used?

.

Curcumin is mainly used in medicine and dietary supplements. All of the above properties mean that you can find it both as a main and additional ingredient in many preparations. In addition, it also has other uses.

  • Spices. Curcumin, rich in curcumin, is often used as a spice in South Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines. It adds a unique flavour and intense yellow colour to dishes.
  • .
  • Cosmetics. Curcumin is also a common ingredient in cosmetic products. Its potent anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties make it commonly used in skin care formulations.
  • Colorants. Because of its intense yellow colour, curcumin is often used as a natural dye in the food, textile and pharmaceutical industries.
  • .

Curcumin versus curcumin - which is better and how do they differ?

.

Curcumin and curcumin are terms that are similar to each other - both in terms of spelling and the characteristics themselves. Despite this, many people use these names interchangeably, and they refer to two different things.

  • Curcuma is a natural spice that is made from the root of the plant of the same name. It is widely used in cooking, especially in Indian and Asian cuisine (e.g. for curries), as well as in traditional medicine, such as Ayurveda, for its strong anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.
  • Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It is this particular compound that is responsible for most of the positive health effects attributed to turmeric. Curcumin accounts for only about 3.14% of turmeric by weight. Despite this, it is being intensively researched due to its potential health benefits, which are described aboveand.
.
Curcumin is extracted from the rhizome Curcuma longa.

Where can you buy curcumin?

.

You can buy curcumin both in pharmacies, herbal shops and online shops. Keep in mind, however, that stationary the choice will most often not be very large. On the internet you can find such brands of curcumin supplements as Aliness, HealthLabs, Solgar, Silver or KFD. The price of curcumin is most often a few tens of zlotys, but this depends on the manufacturer.

.

Curcumin with piperine - why are they often combined?

.

As you already know, curcumin exhibits a number of health-promoting properties. However, its bioavailability (ability to be absorbed and utilised by the body) is very low. This is most likely due to its rapid metabolism in the gut and liver, as well as its low solubility in waterand.

Piperine, the active ingredient in black pepper, can increase the bioavailability of curcumin, by up to 2000%. This happens by reducing the metabolism of curcumin in the liver and increasing absorption through the intestinal membranes, resulting in more curcumin in the bloodstreamand.

In a nutshell: curcumin + piperine together work better, faster and more effectively than separately.

.
Piperine can irritate the gastric mucosa, so people with peptic ulcer disease should be wary of it.

Is there curcumin in the form of a medicine?"

.

Curcumin does not exist in drug form. All preparations available on the market are dietary supplements.

In what forms does curcumin occur?

.

Curcumin comes in many forms. Some are suitable only for cooking, others are for supplementation, and others are cosmetics that support beauty.

  • Natural turmeric. This is the raw rhizome of turmeric containing natural curcumin. It is mostly poorly absorbed but can be a good addition to a variety of dishes.
  • Curcumin powder. One of the most popular and easily accessible ways to consume curcumin. The powder is extracted from dried turmeric rhizomes. It has good bioavailability and is convenient for supplementation.
  • .
  • Turmeric tablets. Contains concentrated turmeric extract and is often enriched with additives to increase the bioavailability of curcumin (such as piperine).
  • Liquid curcumin. Liquid curcumin usually comes in drop form, which is recommended for people who have difficulty swallowing curcumin capsules.
  • Creams, ointments, lotions. Curcumin is used in many skin care products for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Market available curcumin most often contains about 77% curcumin in the form of curcuminoids.

What is liposomal, micellar and micellised curcumin?

.

Micellar curcumin is a curcumin that is encapsulated in micelles.

Type

.

Characteristics

.

Liposomal curcumin

Liposomal curcumin is curcumin contained in liposomes, which are small, sheathed membranes formed from lipids. The liposomes increase the bioavailability and absorption of curcumin in the body, allowing it to maximise its health benefits.

Micellar curcumin

.

Micellar curcumin is curcumin that has been encapsulated in micelles. A micelle is a small, spherical structure that can penetrate the permeable intestinal wall, allowing for increased absorption of curcumin.

Micellized curcumin

Micelised curcumin has undergone a micellization process. It increases its bioavailability by converting it into small molecules (micelles), which are more easily absorbed by the body.

How to dose curcumin?

.

The dosage of curcumin depends on its form, as well as the expected effects. If you are using curcumin from natural turmeric, in the form of a spice, then limit yourself to 3000 mg per day. In this form, it is a good idea to add it to a variety of dishes or drinks.

Dosages in supplements, on the other hand, vary depending on the intended use. However, effective daily servings are 1000-2000 mgand.

.

Contraindications to the use of curcumin

.

Curcumin is generally considered a safe substance that can be taken by most people. However, as with other remedies, there are groups of people who should avoid it.

Contraindications to the use of curcumin includeand:

.
    .
  • pregnancy,
  • .
  • breastfeeding period,
  • .
  • diseases of the liver or gallbladder,
  • .
  • blood clotting problems,
  • .
  • taking hypertension or antidiabetic, anticoagulant medication,
  • .

These contraindications relate primarily to dietary supplements. In the kitchen, you can use turmeric as a spice without fear - if you do so in moderation, of course.

Curcumin - side effects

.

Most often, the consumption of curcumin has no side effects. Side effects do occur in sensitive individuals, and those who heavily overdo the dosage.

Side effects of taking curcumin includeand:

  • abdominal pain,
  • .
  • nausea,
  • .
  • diarrhea,
  • .
  • zgaga,
  • .
  • headaches,
  • .

Most often these symptoms appear a few hours after an overdose of curcumin. If you experience them, stop taking this remedy immediately. In case these side effects persist - see your doctor.

.
.
Some people who supplement with curcumin may experience side effects. In most cases, however, these are those who overdo the dosage of supplements or the seasoning of dishes. I would also point out that drinking water with turmeric, especially on an empty stomach (a popular way to supplement), can irritate the stomach.

Curcumin - doctor's opinion

.
.
High doses of curcumin are not recommended for long-term use. Studies are still lacking to confirm its safety. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends taking 3 mg/kg body weight.

FAQ

.
. Can curcumin be taken with contraceptive pills?.

Yes, there are no studies that indicate direct contraindications to combining curcumin with contraceptive pills. However, be aware that curcumin may affect the metabolism of drugs in the liver, potentially altering their effectiveness. Therefore, it is always advisable to consult your doctor.

. What formula does curcumin have?.

The chemical formula of curcumin is: C21H20O6.

. Can curcumin help treat diabetes?

Yes, research suggests that curcumin may play an important role in supporting the treatment of people with type 2 diabetes. Curcumin has potent anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic properties and affects the regulation of blood sugar levels.

. Can I take curcumin during pregnancy?.

No, one of the contraindications to the use of curcumin is pregnancy. Although curcumin is a natural substance and is generally safe, not enough studies have been conducted on pregnant and lactating women to confirm its safety.

An exception to this contraindication is other doctor's recommendations.

. Can curcumin support mental health?.

Yes, curcumin has potential mental health benefits. It has neuroprotective effects, meaning it protects neurons from damage. In addition, studies have shown that curcumin may contribute to reducing symptoms of depression. It has also been observed to have beneficial effects on improving memory and concentration.

. Can curcumin be consumed with alcohol?.

While the spice, when used in small amounts in dishes, will not cause an interaction with alcohol, this is not the case with supplements.

Consuming alcohol during curcumin supplementation may increase the risk of side effects. Furthermore, there is a lack of research on the interaction of curcumin with alcohol, so it is better not to abuse alcoholic beverages during supplementation.

. Does curcumin have analgesic effects?.

Yes, research suggests that curcumin may act as a natural analgesic. Curcumin's anti-inflammatory effects may reduce pain caused by conditions such as arthritis.
