The questions to which you should always know the answers.

While the studies and research are ongoing, the suggested benefits of Turmeric and Curcumin are supported by evidence from various randomized controlled trials (RCTs) — the gold standard of research.

Many studies indicate that chronic inflammation may be a critical factor in developing heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer's, and cancer. Curcumin has antioxidant properties that may help reduce inflammation in the body. In test-tube and animal studies, Curcumin has been shown to block specific biological pathways leading to inflammation.

As for Turmeric, several studies found that it may reduce knee pains and improve functioning in people with osteoarthritis. In another RCT, 120 overweight individuals took Curcumin supplements for three months and have witnessed reduced cholesterol levels.

Curcumin may also improve the quality of life for people with chronic kidney disease who are experiencing itchy skin. In one RCT, those taking Curcumin had decreased markers of inflammation and reported minor itching. Though less conclusive, other RCTs indicate Curcumin may play a beneficial role in heart disease, diabetes prevention, surgery recovery and irritable bowel syndrome.

While Curcumin has been touted to be a superfood, mainly due to its antioxidant, anti-cancer, and anti-inflammatory properties, it's tough to meet the medicinal properties of Curcumin associated with it just by adding Turmeric to our food.

Turmeric used in everyday cooking does not have enough Curcumin, the critical ingredient attributed to the primary health benefits. In general, there is 3% to 6% of Curcumin content in the Turmeric. We use less than a gram of Turmeric powder in our daily cooking, resulting in very little consumption. The body does not absorb even that due to poor solubility and bioavailability. Hence, the body does not get enough supply of Curcumin with everyday food.

So, we may need to turn to supplements like Holistic Curcumin if we want to get the health benefits of Curcumin.

While Curcumin, with its anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and antioxidant properties, is considered the superfood with a host of health benefits, even Turmeric has some significant health benefits, including antifungal, antibacterial and digestive properties.

There is no official consensus on whether it's best to take curcumin or turmeric supplements. Both Turmeric and Curcumin can reduce joint inflammation, cholesterol, blood sugar, and tumours, fungal and bacterial growth.

Many high-quality studies have shown that Turmeric has significant benefits for your body and brain. These benefits come from its main medicinal compounds called curcuminoids, the most important one, Curcumin. Besides, Turmeric has many active, therapeutic ingredients that work together as a team, along with Curcumin, to give goodness to our body. Fifty-four active ingredients, to be precise! The health effects were magnified when Curcumin was taken along with these other therapeutic compounds of Turmeric.

Our Holistic Curcumin supplements offer precisely that.

No, water-soluble and bioavailable are two different terms.

Bioavailable, by definition, is the proportion of a substance that enters the circulation when introduced into the body to have an active effect. In simple terms, how much and how quick your body can start using it.

A substance is water-soluble when it dissolves completely in water. Generally, water-soluble substances are also highly bioavailable, with very few exceptions.

Up to 60% of the human adult body is water. According to H.H. Mitchell, Journal of Biological Chemistry, the brain and heart are 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water. The skin contains 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79%, and even the bones are watery, 31%!

So water-soluble Curcumin is naturally poised to be bioavailable. Of course, our patented extraction and precision nano-technologies make it more bioavailable than any other.

Generally, fat-soluble products are complex in structure and take loads of effort for the human body to break down. Whereas water-soluble extracts are simple structures, and the human body is easily able to break them down to increase the efficacy of the medicine.

While Curcumin has the most therapeutic value among all the compounds of Turmeric, there are many other active ingredients in Turmeric, like peptides, essential oils, and turmerone, which have proven health benefits, as per many studies.

Most conventional market products, even those of leading brands, offer you finely ground curcumin powder in their capsules and tablets. Just grinding powder-fine offers NO benefits at all. Our patented nano-technology ensures that the curcumin particle size is below 50 nanometers. This is what is required to provide that our ever-efficient metabolism does not throw out the Curcumin. What we do is relatively simple. We reduce the Curcumin to a particle size small enough to get past the digestive enzymes of the gastrointestinal tract and enter the bloodstream intact to elicit the health benefits.

Further, our patented precision technology ensures that the curcumin molecules reach the parts of the body, which need the therapeutic properties of Curcumin.

Since this is an all-natural food supplement, there would be no dependency. In fact, as per some reports, prolonged consumption of Curcumin had shown the benefits of preventive care against some severe ailments.

Most of the benefits of Turmeric are credited to Curcumin.
