Curcumin & Turmeric

Curcumin (Turmeric) Suppresses Arthritis Symptoms

Curcumin (turmeric) is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Now researchers have found curcumin may also help underlying causes of inflammation and reduce damage to bone and cartilage. (2, 8)

Curcumin is Superior to Steroidal (SAIDS) and Non-Steriodal (NSAIDS) Anti-Inflammatory Drugs

Research shows curcumin acts as a scavenger of nitric oxide and inhibits COX-2, a pro-inflammatory substance. Also a potent scavenger of superoxide, the anti-inflammatory activity and superoxide scavenging property of curcumin are proven correlated. Clinically, curcumin has worked as well as cortisone or phenylbutazone for rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and post-operative inflammation. (1-5)

Compare the effect of curcumin and NSAID phenylbutazone on reduction of post-operative inflammation

The anti-inflammatory activity of curcumin was evaluated in a group of patients who underwent surgery or suffered from trauma. A double-blind controlled-trial in which three groups received curcumin (400 mg/day), a placebo, or phenylbutazone (100 mg/day) for five consecutive days after surgery. Treatment with curcumin resulted in reduced inflammation more effectively than phenylbutazone. (5)

Phenylbutazone is a powerful analgesic (painkiller) and an NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug). Unlike NSAIDS, which have dangerous side-effects and black-box warnings, curcumin is safe and has no side-effects, even at doses up to 8,000 mg per day. (10, 11)

Curcumin has similar anti-inflammatory action as NSAIDS, but without side effects. Unlike aspirin and other classical COX-inhibitors, curcumin selectively inhibits synthesis of inflammatory prostaglandin thromboxane without affecting prostacyclin synthesis, and curcumin thereby protects against vascular thrombosis. (16-21)

NSAIDS and COX-inhibitors have dangerous side-effects, in fact, COX-2 inhibiting drugs must include a "black box" warning--the strongest alert the FDA can require. Whereas curcumin is safe, even at doses of up to 8,000 mg per day. (10, 11)

Curcumin also inhibits COXs better than indomethacin, a currently prescribed mixed COX inhibitor. (6, 7)

A double-blind crossover study in patients with "definite" rheumatoid arthritis compared the antirheumatic activity of curcumin (1200 mg/day) with phenylbutazone, a corticosteroids drug (300 mg/day). The curcumin therapy resulted in "significant" improvements over corticosteroids. Curcumin better relieved morning stiffness and joint swelling, and improved walking time. Best of all, curcumin was well-tolerated and produced no side-effects. (2, 8)

Curcumin Suppresses Systemic Inflammation Markers

Another published study found curcumin substantially suppresses systemic inflammation markers MMP-3 by 48% to 99%, and MMP-13 by 45% to 97%. Researchers concluded curcumin could be useful for reducing cartilage degradation (resorption by MMPs) in arthritis. (2 ,9)

How Much Curcumin Can You Absorb?

Unfortunately, even pure curcumin (including all known curcuminoids) is very poorly absorbed into the bloodstream after oral ingestion due to rapid metabolism in the liver and intestinal wall, and rapid systemic elimination. (4, 16)

Natural Pathway for Oral  Curcumin Absorption

Other 95%-standardized curcumin products are mostly excreted as waste. (23)

Unlike other 95% curcumin/curcuminoid products which rely upon purification of curcuminoids, BIOMOR® Curcumin is formulated with components of turmeric normally removed during the extraction process. This proprietary formula thereby relies on the inherent synergy of turmeric's natural components to dramatically increase blood levels of curcumin. The manufacturing process is patented and the subject of on-going clinical trials. (8,24)

Hi there. I have been taking your BioMor Curcumin for about 6-8 months now. I will always take it. I have a bad back and it helps alleviate swelling and pain from that but I have done some reading about the longer term benefits of taking it and am so glad to be a customer... Thank you. —Mr. Ed K.*

My husband is a lumber grader and so he uses his shoulders and arms a lot. He has been taking 2 BioMor Curcumin and 2 Flavay Plus per day and he noticed how his shoulders and arms are feeling better. Even his psoriasis is better. Thank you for helping us with something that helps my husband so much! —Ms. D.E.*

Both my wife and I are taking Biomor Curcumin. It has been very effective for both of us. We have tried many brands of curcumin, including one that appears very similar except the other is manufactured using stearates. I felt a very significant difference between Biomor Curcumin and the other brands. I also found Biomor Curcumin is less expensive because I take less, with better results. I'm very happy with Biomor Curcumin —Mr. J.S.*

Thank God I found your Biomor Curcumin! My nutritionist recommended I take 5,000 mg curcumin per day, so I tried several brands of curcumin. Of one brand with piperine, I took 8 per day of 580 mg per capsule (4,440 mg per day). Of another brand, also with piperine, I took 6 per day of 875 mg per capsule (5,250 mg per day). Both of the curcumin products with piperine caused me to feel extremely exhausted, to the point where I couldn't do anything but rest. It seems the piperine reacted with my medications. So, I'm so glad to have to have found Biomor Curcumin. I began feeling good with only one 500 mg capsule before bedtime, and I will begin to take another in the morning (1,000 mg per day). I feel great taking Biomor Curcumin. —Mr. N. Smith*

I want to tell your company that your Biomor Curcumin is doing wonderful things for my wife. We've tried various curcumin products and this one is the best. —Mr. R.B.*

It (Biomor Curcumin) has been working GREAT for my arthritic knees!!! I was going to have additional shots but decided to try these instead. AMAZING RESULTS!!!! —Mr. B.C.*

My daughter takes Biomor Curcumin for boils and I want to tell you it really helps. —Ms. T.C.*

I judge by my knees! My brother gave me a bottle of Biomor Curcumin and it works much better for me than the other brands of curcumin. —Mr. M.V.*

I'm getting relief from arthritis symptoms in my right knee (taking both Flavay and Biomor Curcumin). Sitting for long periods or getting out of my car was very painful for those first 5-10 steps, but no longer. The swelling in my knee has also subsided and the range of motion has come back... I'm definitely much better and in less pain than before. Another benefit I also noticed is that dry skin in both of my lower legs/ankle area has disappeared. —Mr. B.M.*

Thank you for Biomor Curcumin. I have a muscle disease which affords me little strength, and severe osteoarthritis. I cannot take NSAIDs or steroids due to severe diverticulosis. Biomor Curcumin gives me the flexibility to be able to move about freely. I was about to enter a nursing facility and was introduced to your fine product. —Mr. Kenneth W.*

I am not one to review products, but i can't deny some of the benefits i've experienced using both your curcumin and flavay products. I've been taking both for a few months now, and the two major benefits i've noticed are 1) joint strength and mobility (for workouts) as i am lifting much heavier weights without injury 2) I am a paroxsymal Afib sufferer, and my episodes have gone from 2-3 per week down to zero (most weeks). This can't just be a coincidence. I think there is definitely something in your formulas that stop inflammation and get your body in balance and healing itself. —Mr. B.V.W.*

I am your best Fan...Go BIOMOR...Ra Ra Ra... 😊 😊 —Mr. George D.*

I can't believe what this stuff (BioMor Curcumin) has done for me! I just can't believe it! I was in three car wrecks and so I could hardly move and I was so stiff. But after about 3 weeks jumped out of bed! —Mr. Mike T.*

I've been taking one BioMor Curcumin a day for a long time. It does help. It works well, that's all I'll say. —Mr. John R.*

My husband's hands were hurting so bad but after Biomor Curcumin his hands feel aren't hurting! —Ms. Wanda M.*

Thank you so much for your quick response. The Biomor Curcumin has helped me so much with my Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis and M.S. When I don’t take the Biomor you can see the swelling worsen in my joints, it has helped me so much since I started taking them, and will now add an extra pill or two during the times my inflammation is at it’s worse. I will also continue to advise others to research, and purchase Biomor through Healthy Source. —Ms. B.H.*
