Jarrow Formulas Curcumin 95, 500mg, 120 Capsules


Curcumin 95 is an 18:1 extract of the antioxidants found in the spice turmeric root. Curcumin 95 contains 95% curcuminoids (including curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin), which are antioxidants. Specifically, curcumin and its derivatives protect DNA against oxidative damage induced by reactive oxygen species.

Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a bright yellow spice and a traditional remedy that has been used as a medicine, condiment and flavoring since 600 BC. The rhizome (underground stem) is the part of the plant that is harvested and ground to make the spice. The key bioactive constituents found in turmeric are three kinds of curcuminoids: curcumin, demethoxyl-curcumin, and bisdemethoxyl-curcumin. All three components are structurally similar although curcumin seems to be the most documented constituent. Curcumin and these related curcuminoids appear to affect human health through antioxidant activity and possible modulation of 5-lipo-oxygenase (LOX) and cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes.*

Antioxidant & Detoxification

Curcuminoids (hereinafter referred to as curcumin) also exhibit strong antioxidant activity, enhance cellular resistance to oxidative damage, and provide antioxidant protection against DNA damage.* Curcumin also enhances the body’s natural antioxidant glutathione levels, which in turn aids the liver in detoxification.* Turmeric has also been found to have hepatoprotective (i.e., liver-protective) properties against a variety of liver-toxic chemicals.*

Joint Health

In research on people with suboptimal joint function, curcumin was found to be useful for promoting a healthy inflammatory response, while promoting comfort and flexibility.* In a double-blind study, curcumin was found to be superior to a placebo or other study compounds supporting a healthy post-surgical inflammatory response.*

Other Health Effects

Constituents of turmeric exert several protective effects on the gastrointestinal tract, most likely via its antioxidant activity. A double-blind trial found turmeric helpful for people with indigestion and effective in animal research in promoting healthy digestive function.*

Via its antioxidant activity, curcumin may help promote cardiovascular health, especially by decreasing the propensity of low density lipoprotein (LDL) to oxidize.* Research continues to suggest that oxidized LDL is one of the more pernicious forms of cholesterol in relation to cardiovascular health.*

Jarrow Formulas is a natural botanical extract from the spice turmeric root. Curcumin 95 contains 95 percent curcuminoids (including curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin), which are scientifically well-documented antioxidants.* Specifically, curcumin and its derivatives support DNA integrity and protect cells against oxidative damage induced by reactive oxygen species.*

    I’m surprised there aren’t more reviews on this product. Curcumin is an extract from TUMERIC. It is now being researched for its anti-inflammatory properties especially involving blood vessels. Cardiovascular disease starts out as an inflammatory condition and progresses from there. It is a potent antioxidant which protects your genes and can be considered prevention against cancer. Jarrow is a well respected company that has a long track record for quality. There is a slight controversy. Should you use the whole herb tumeric or the extract Curcumin? I would use both combined with cayenne pepper and Hawthorne berry root. Add some Garlic extract and fish oil and you have a superior heart healthy nutrient mix. This is a very good product. And don’t leave out the Coenzyme Q-10.

    I bought these because I’d been reading that curcumin (an ingredient in turmeric) is helpful in controlling psoriasis. I’ve been on Soriatane, a prescription capsule, for several years and taking a half dose (one Soriatane cap per day) plus two capsules of the curcumin seems just as effective as the full dose of Soriatane with way fewer side effects. Soriatane is insanely expensive and can really beat up your liver, so the curcumin experiment seemed reasonable to me. Two months in and it appears to be working just fine. My doctor is pleased with my latest labs and my psoriasis is manageable (not gone, but better than it was on just the half dose of Soriatane — about the same as it was on a full dose of Soriatane), so I’m happy with this product. Note: psoriasis flares and wanes and you usually never know why, but usually in January mine is really bad. This year it’s not too bad, though a half dose of Soriatane does not control it. I definitely think the curcumin has helped, and I’m not one of the “nature is best/drugs are bad/eat healthy and you’ll cure anything” crowd…I was skeptical but willing to give it a couple of months. So far, so good.

    For some reason I began getting boils about 2 years ago. They never went away and really became something awful to have to deal with . I had at least one all the time. I tried several home remedies and other natural products. Then I read about these Curcumin supplements. I would have given anything a try. I began taking one per day after lunch in March, 2010 – in May, I noticed I hadn’t gotten any new boils. I was afraid to think I had found a cure. It will be August in a few days and I haven’t had a boil in 3 months! That may not sound like a long time but it is forever for someone who suffers from boils! I am THRILLED. I have had no side effects that I can tell. I consider this a wonder drug – so far…so good!
