Curcumin is the active ingredient of turmeric, and is also found in limited amounts in Ginger. It is a potent anti-inflammatory and cancer preventative molecule, and similar to Fish Oil it seems to be an effective metabolic syndrome band-aid. Black Pepper greatly enhances absorption.
Curcumin is the yellow pigment associated with the curry spice, Turmeric, and to a lesser extent Ginger. It is a small molecule that is the prototypical ‘curcuminoid’, and has effects similar to other polyphenols but unique in a way as it is a different class of polyphenol (relative to the other classes of ‘flavonoid’, ‘stilbene’, etc.)
It exerts potent anti-inflammatory effects, and these anti-inflammatory effects seem to be quite protective against some form of cancer progression. However, curcumin has additional anti-cancer effects that are independent of its anti-inflammatory effects and thus is a heavily researched molecule for both cancer prevention and treatment.
Other areas of interest as it pertains to curcumin are alleviating cognitive decline associated with aging, being heart healthy by both electrical means and reducing lipid and plaque levels in arteries, and both reducing the risk of diabetes and being a good treatment for the side-effects associated with diabetes.
It has a poor oral bioavailability (a low percentage of what you consume is absorbed) and thus should be enhanced with other agents such as black pepper extract, called piperine. This is unless you want the curcumin in your colon (as it is a colon anti-inflammatory and can help with digestion), in which case you wouldn’t pair it with an enhancement.
Doses up to 8g curcuminoids in humans have been shown to not be associated with much adverse effects at all, and in vitro tests suggest curcumin has quite a large safety threshold.

WHAT IS AN IMMUNE SYSTEM?
We need to understand the answer to this question before we go any further. Your body needs a system of defence against infection. One definition says it is ‘the processes within your body that protects against disease’. Think of it like your own personal army guarding your body against attacks from invading viruses, bacteria, parasites & fungi. We all have a system that is made up of a network of cells, tissues & organs. This system identifies threats from foreign and harmful invaders. It recognizes & responds immediately by attacking organisms and substances that invade the body and cause disease. It is therefore very important to have a strong system armed with the correct weapons to win the battles against illnesses.

CURCUMIN C3 COMPLEX®
You are probably familiar with CURCUMIN (curcuma longa root) commonly known as ‘Turmeric’. It has been used as a spice, food colouring, textile die and it is also a medicinal extract. This traditional Ayurvedic remedy has a long history of use to improve body immunity.
It is a perennial plant and is related to the ginger root family. The extract has a bright orange-yellow colour.
Curcumin C3 Complex® is a patented compound developed by Sabinsa Corporation and we use this standardized extract in our easiHEALTH IMMUNE BOOSTER. The active ingredients are a group of plant substances called curcuminoids (3 main chemical compounds) that protects the cells from free radical damage. The curcuminoids in the turmeric root are responsible for its real health benefits as a “Super Antioxidant” and first of its kind Bioprotectant. This extract has been used in a significant number of clinical trials and research activities.
SAFE, EFFECTIVE & CLINICALLY TESTED
This is one of the most multi-purpose plants in Southern Africa. It is also known as cancer bush/kankerbos, as scientific and clinical studies are being conducted on the plant for its potential use in cancer therapy. It can be recognised by its silvery foliage, bright red flower, balloon seed pod and bitter taste. Related to the pea family, this extraordinary medicinal plant has been used by the Khoi & San as a ‘cure for almost any ailment’. It is indigenous to South Africa and can be found in the Cape (West Coast) and the Karoo amongst other areas. The extract from this healing plant can be used as an immune system booster, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and analgesic. It can be considered as a ‘Quality of life tonic’ and appetite stimulant for patients with compromised immune systems. This ingredient may function as an adaptogen (a substance that invigorates & strengthens the immune system, increasing resistance to disease and stress).
A FEW KEY PREVENTION STRATEGIES TO SURVIVE THE FLU SEASON
Try to remember that the key to a cure for colds and flu’s lies in your body’s immune system. You can either aid or inhibit the immune system by the things you eat, drink or do. A poorly functioning immune system may contribute to frequent cold & flu symptoms. The best solution is to keep your immune system in peak condition all year round.
The answer is a combination of proper diet (include lots of brightly coloured fruit & veg), reduce stress (maybe try meditation or yoga), regular moderate exercise with lots of fresh air, frequent hand washing and drink lots of water! With so many health benefits, why don’t you give easiHEALTH IMMUNE BOOSTER a try?
