Health Benefits at a Glance:
Curcumin is an extract of turmeric root known to promote healthy inflammatory and immune responses. That makes it an excellent complement to black cumin seed oil, which has been shown to promote immune response and help inhibit inflammation to support whole-body health. Get your daily dose of both nutrients in this one convenient formula.
Why it Works:
Managing a healthy immune and inflammatory response are both critical for maintaining your health. Finding a way to balance these two aspects of your physiology is a very important part of maintaining optimal health [1-3].
The Black Cumin Seed Oil with Curcumin Elite™ Turmeric Extract formula both contains black cumin seed oil and a unique curcumin extract and has been carefully developed to deliver targeted nutrient support for immune health and the inflammatory response in equal measure [4-16].
Curcumin is an extract of the turmeric root. Native to the Indian subcontinent, it has been used in Ayurvedic treatments for centuries - and for good reasons. Curcumin is a potent nutrient-packed with compounds called curcuminoids. These compounds are known to help inhibit inflammation, which in turn supports a healthy heart and joint health [17-21]. It also encourages a healthy immune response [17-21].
The new, proprietary Curcumin Elite™ turmeric extract is rooted in scientific studies and has been carefully developed to deliver 45 times more free curcuminoids and over 270 times more total curcuminoids than standard turmeric extracts . That translates to more health benefits for your entire body.
Black Cumin Seed Oil
Black cumin seed oil has been shown to support the body’s healthy inflammation response. It does so by moderating the effect of critical cell-signalling chemicals and hormone-like messengers [6,8,11,15]. Maintaining healthy cell signalling as you age is key to both a healthy inflammatory response as well as immune system function [2,23].
Together, the ingredients in Black Cumin Seed Oil and Curcumin Elite™ from Life Extension® helps you maintain a healthy immune system while promoting a healthy inflammation response with a single (capsule/product). Coming in two daily easy-to-swallow softgels, this formula allows you to support both of these important health aspects with a convenient supplement formula.
The Science Behind the Product:
The active ingredients in this science-backed formula have been scientifically studied to provide the most optimal dosage that this formula can offer. All ingredients have been chosen for this formula to offer science-backed support for the immune system and the inflammatory response.
Black cumin seed oil supports the body’s natural defences by encouraging the optimal function of a healthy immune system. It does so by helping to maintain the vital defensive activities of macrophages and helper T-cells that work together to bolster your immune system [15, 26-30].
Furthermore, curcumin promotes immune system health and supports a healthy inflammatory response [31-34].
The free curcuminoids in turmeric extract, which is also part of this formula, supports the body’s healthy inflammation response as well [18.19]. Moreover, they also help inhibit inflammatory factors like arachidonic acid, cyclooxygenase, lipoxygenase, and cytokine compounds to support heart health, brain health and whole-body health [16,24,25].
