Why Curcuminoids Matter
The name C3 Complex refers to the three main chemical compounds that this complex contains (Curcumin, Demethoxycurcumin, and Bisdemethoxycurcumin) collectively known as Curcuminoids. Curcuminoids are the most potent compounds in turmeric. They are the active ingredients in the root that offer up all the incredible health benefits that turmeric is known for.
Patented for its unique composition ratio and use, research shows C3 Complex offers consumers a wide range of health benefits. Due to its broad positive impact on many physiological activities in the body, C3 Complex is the first of its kind in a category of nutrients described in 1995 as Bioprotectant. C3 Complex provides optimal protection and integrity to biological systems.*
Turmeric acts as an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory agent. It reduces the production of inflammatory molecules, such as prostaglandin and COX-2. In recent clinical studies, the anti-inflammatory action of turmeric was successful in promoting inflammation support. Another controlled trial found that when turmeric was taken daily, it decreased the swelling of joints.
Turmeric Promotes Joint and Skin Health
The organic ingredients found in turmeric can help promote healthy skin.* Curcuminoids support important blood and liver functions, healthy joints, and overall well-being,* which in turn may help promote radiant, supple skin.* Studies have shown that turmeric can also be effective at reducing skin elasticity issues induced by the sun.*
So, turmeric can act as a one-two punch against normal aging with its skin promotion and antioxidant capabilities–outer beauty plus inner purity.*
Turmeric Supports Immune, Digestive, and Liver Health
American and Danish scientists have found Curcumin increases levels of a protein called CAMP that helps the immune system to fight off bacteria and fungi the first time they try to attack.*
Supporting a healthy digestive system, turmeric is anti-inflammatory to the mucous membranes, which coat the throat, lungs, stomach and intestines. Turmeric decreases congestion and inflammation from stagnant mucous membranes, which in turn benefits the digestive system.*
Turmeric shares similar liver protectant compounds that milk thistle and artichoke leaves contain. This has been shown to support liver health.*
BioPerine® is an extract obtained from the black pepper fruit that is cultivated in the damp, nutrient-rich soil regions of southern India. The delicate pepper berries are harvested just prior to ripening and then sun dried to assure optimum maturity and quality. The extract of piperine, called BioPerine® in the patented form, has been clinically tested in the United States. BioPerine® significantly enhances the bioavailability of various supplement nutrients through increased absorption.
