Curcumin NovaSOL® 500mg
Curcumin is an antioxidant that exerts multiple benefits throughout the body, including suppressing pro-inflammatory chemicals. Curcumin is usually poorly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. However, patented NovaSOL® solubilising nanotechnology gives SOLAL® curcumin unique properties resulting in better absorption and 185 times improved bioavailability. Curcumin assists with protection against inflammatory ageing.
Curcumin seems to have anti-inflammatory activity, possibly by inhibiting cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), prostaglandins, leukotrienes, and other cytokines involved in pro-inflammatory signalling pathways.
