CanPrev Curcumin-Pro Details

CanPrev’s Curcumin-Pro™ is an innovative and pure curcumin product, providing antioxidants that assist in the maintenance of health and the relief of joint inflammation. It delivers an impressive 1200mg of curcumin daily, the principal curcuminoid of the popular Indian spice turmeric, which has been used as a component of Indian Ayurvedic medicine since 1900 BC to treat a wide variety of ailments.

However, clinical trials in humans indicate that the systemic bioavailability of orally administered curcumin is relatively low. We have therefore added phosphatidylcholine (a component of lecithin, natural source) to enhance curcumin’s bioavailability, as well as bromelain to further improve curcumin’s absorption and add to its anti-inflammatory characteristics.

CanPrev Curcumin-Pro Contains:

Curcumin

Curcumin is the main biologically active phytochemical compound of turmeric. turmeric is a spice derived from the rhizomes of curcuma longa, which has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. curcumin is extracted, concentrated and standardized (in this case, to 100% curcuminoids). Extensive research has been conducted over the years on curcumin and research supports a wide range of health benefits including antioxi- dant effects, modulation of the production of inflammatory signal molecules, inducing apoptosis in cancer cells and increasing cellular glutathione levels.

Bromelain

Bromelain is a natural anti-inflammatory enzyme that assists in breaking down proteins to further improve digestion. it is a proteolytic (protein-digesting enzyme) derived from pineapple juice pulp.

Phosphatidylcholine

Phosphatidylcholine is a phospholipid found in egg yolks and soy and a major component of human cell membranes. 

Combination Rationale of CanPrev Curcumin-Pro

CanPrev's curcumin-Pro™ provides a pure and therapeutic dose of the principal cur- cuminoid of the popular indian spice turmeric. in humans, systemic bioavailability of orally administered curcumin is relatively low. curcumin, on its own, is unstable in the gut and the traces that do pass through the Gi tract rapidly degrade or are conjugated through glucuronidation. canPrev's curcumin-Pro™ contains phosphatidylcholine and bromelain for enhanced absorption and bioavailability of curcumin.

Recent research shows that phosphatidylcholine can increase the bioavailability of curcumin. Phosphatidylcholine has a highly polarized head, with the negative charge of a phosphate group and the positive charge of the choline ammonium group, and can complex a variety of poorly soluble phenolics, including curcumin. CanPrev has also in- cluded bromelain in the formulation for added synergist anti-inflammatory effects and enhanced bioavailability.

In addition, herbalists often recommend that turmeric be taken with a proteolytic enzyme, such as bromelain, to improve absorption. 

Curcumin:

Neutralizes free radicals that help prevent and soothe osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, high cholesterol, cancer and infections ...

Turmeric

You are probably familiar with turmeric as the spice that gives curried dishes their characteristic colour and flavour. Turmeric contains antioxidant chemicals, called curcuminoids, for neutralizing free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that cause damage to the body's tissues when they bump into healthy cells. Thus turmeric can be used to stop infections, protect the liver from toxins and may be useful for cancer.

The same molecules inhibit inflammation, thus acting as pain relieving agents. Turmeric has been shown to improve joint mobility and reduce the pain and swelling associated with all forms of arthritis. This activity is equivalent to the effect of some NSAID drugs. Turmeric lowers the level of harmful, or LDL, cholesterol and increases the level of helpful, or HDL, cholesterol. It also increases circulation and blood flow. All of these properties make turmeric a good choice for individuals with compromised circulation, heart disease and high cholesterol.

Turmeric can be used as a spice, encapsulated herb, dried herb, tincture or liquid extract. Better quality supplements are standardized which is an assurance that the product contains turmeric and has some active properties. Turmeric is found as a component of pain relieving, anti-inflammatory and cholesterol lowering formulas. Turmeric may be found in topical creams or gels for pain relief. Turmeric supplements are sometimes labelled as curcumin.

Turmeric contains substances that decrease your blood clotting ability therefore those with active bleeding, or those who use blood thinners, aspirin or NSAIDs should use caution. For the same reason, stop using turmeric 2 weeks prior to surgery or dental procedures. Turmeric may alter the effectiveness of some heart and cholesterol medications. Turmeric may irritate the gastrointestinal tract and liver or gallbladder, in some individuals, because it causes the release of digestive juices.

Bromelain:

The stem of a pineapple contains bromelain, which is very helpful for protein indigestion, inflammation, arthritis and sinusitis ... 

The bromelains are a group of naturally occurring protein-digestive (proteolytic) enzymes. They are found in the stem of the pineapple. Other components of the stem, including various enzymes and calcium, are also present in commercial bromelain preparations.

Besides being used as a protein digestive aid, the enzymes in bromelain inhibit inflammatory chemicals called prostaglandins. The anti-inflammatory effect has been studied for its effectiveness in inflammatory conditions like arthritis and sinusitis.

In order to get substantial amounts of bromelain from pineapple you must eat the fibrous stem, therefore it is much easier to use a supplement form. Bromelain can be purchased in capsules. Enteric-coated capsules limit the use of bromelain in food digestion. They have been studied, with mixed results, for anti-inflammatory conditions. Bromelain is found as a component of digestive, multi-enzyme or anti-inflammatory formulas. Supplements should be standardized as an assurance of the enzyme activity of the preparation.

Phosphatidyl Choline:

Breaks down fats, builds the cellular membrane and synthesizes the neurochemical acetylcholine.

Phosphatidyl choline (PC)

Phosphatidyl choline (PC) is widely used in the food industry as a food emulsifier. Emulsifying means that it makes fat soluble in water. As a supplement, PC breaks down fats, builds the cellular membrane and synthesizes the neurochemical acetylcholine.

PC's emulsifying properties allow it to prevent fatty build-ups in the body, for example in the blood vessels, gallbladder and liver. By decreasing fatty build-up on arteries it helps to regulate blood pressure. PC is a large component of all cell membranes because it regulates the passage of substances into and out of the cell. It can cross the blood-brain barrier to produce brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that aid in memory - in particular acetylcholine. 

The protective coating of the brain and nerve cells are also composed of choline. In this respect PC helps to make the sheath (myelin) that surrounds the nerves that conduct messages from the brain to the muscles and organs of your body, performing a similar function to the insulation sheathing of electrical wires. If this protective sheath degenerates (as in MS), a "shorting out" of the message that the nerve is carrying occurs. Natural health practitioners for alcoholic liver damage, Alzheimer's disease, gallstones, hepatitis, atherosclerosis, memory loss, nerve degeneration and depression recommend PC.

PC supplements are made in capsules but lecithin is found in capsules or as granules. Lecithin granules should be refrigerated for freshness because the essential fatty acid component can go rancid. Lecithin contains 10-20% PC. Newer lecithin supplements, made from fresh egg yolk, contain a higher percentage of PC.
