Description of Optim Curcuma

Originally from India , turmeric (Curcuma Longa L) is a plant of the ginger family that has been used for centuries in traditional cuisine and medicine. To overcome the very low uptake of curcumin, the active principle of Turmeric, a group of researchers from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) developed this innovative formula. One capsule of Optim Curcuma provides the equivalent of at least 6 g of standard concentrated curcumin extract and
- participates to the reduction of oxidative stress and inflammation
- promotes comfortable joints
- supports cognitive related functions.

3 things you should know about curcumin, the active ingredient of turmeric:
1/ Curcumin levels in dry turmeric powder are only between 2 to 5%
2/ Curcumin is very poorly absorbed into the blood. It has been demonstrated that pure curcumin is not absorbed into the blood for doses up to 8 grams per day, i.e., the equivalent of over 200 grams of turmeric powder. (Lao 2006)
3/ Adding black pepper to curcumine powder does not increase the absorption of the free, or active, curcumin into the body (Begum 2008; Volak 2012).

After more than 10 years of research, the key to the effectiveness of the formula of Optim Curcuma was found in the SLCP patented process (Solid-Lipid Curcumin Particle). Curcumin powder is carefully covered with natural lecithin to form small particles that can increase up to 65 times the absorption of “free” curcumin in the body.
