Curamin® Extra Strength

How it Works:

A unique combination, this formula combines ingredients with multiple mechanisms of action to support a healthy inflammation response and relieve occasional muscle pain due to exercise and overuse. Curcumin and boswellia support healthy COX-2 and 5-LOX activity. DLPA promotes positive mood and nattokinase increase circulation to move the beneficial compounds to the areas of the body where they are needed.*

DLPA
DL-phenylalanine is an amino acid consisting of equal parts D-phenylalanine and L-phenylalanine. D-phenylalanine helps maximize the effects of enkephalins. Enkephalins are associated with positive mood and have been shown to relieve occasional muscle pain due to exercise or overuse.* L-phenylalanine is converted into tyrosine, which in turn is used to produce the brain chemicals norepinephrine and dopamine.1-3

Boswellia (Boswellia serrata)
Clinically tested boswellia (BosPure®) helps support healthy 5-LOX activity.* A compound (beta boswellic acid) found in boswellia which interferes with its beneficial activity has been removed, greatly increasing the effectiveness of this extract.4,5

Curcumin (Curcumin longa)
Curcumin, a compound found in the spice turmeric, is associated with many benefits, including: immune system modulation, protection from oxidative stress, and support for a healthy inflammation response.* The specialized extract in this formula has up to 10 times the absorption and blood retention time of standardized 95% curcumin extracts.6-12

Nattokinase
The enzyme nattokinase helps promote blood flow, aiding the other ingredients in the formula to reach all areas of the body.*13, 14

FAQ's

Curamin® Extra Strength

Q: Does Nattokinase contain Vitamin K?

No. Nattokinase is an isolated and purified enzyme extract from natto (a fermented soybean food), which does not contain vitamin K.

Q: Is there a difference between Curamin® and curcumin?

Yes. Curcumin is the beneficial compound found in the root of the turmeric plant. Curamin is the name of the product which contains curcumin along with BosPure® boswellia, DLPA and nattokinase.

Q: Is there a difference between turmeric and curcumin?

Yes. Turmeric is the plant that provides curcumin. A typical turmeric root contains about 2-5% curcumin, so taking an unstandardized, powdered turmeric root product means that very large amounts would be required to get a beneficial amount of curcumin. Additionally, curcumin is poorly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. While turmeric is excellent when used as a spice, a bioavailable curcumin extract, such as the BCM-95 used in Curamin, is a better choice for health benefits.

Q: Is it okay to take Curamin® Extra-Strength and Curamin® at the same time?

You can take both of them at the same time, but you may want to start with Curamin Extra-Strength for initial intensive benefits, and then use Curamin as a daily maintenance supplement.

Q: What is the difference between Curamin Extra-Strength and the regular-formula Curamin?

Curamin Extra-Strength simply provides a higher level of ingredients in a different ratio and a more convenient dosage form. Just one or two tablets per day of Curamin Extra-Strength may be enough to provide the benefits people are looking for to support the body’s natural inflammatory response.*

Q: What makes the BosPure® boswellia in Curamin Extra Strength different than other boswellia extracts?

Because while most boswellic acids are associated with positive benefits, not all of them truly are best when you’re trying to support an active lifestyle. By ensuring at least 10% or more acetyl-11-keto-β-boswellic acid (AKBA), and reducing beta-boswellic acid to less than 5%, BosPure® provides much greater benefit than most standard boswellic extracts, some of which have up to 15-25% beta-boswellic acid!

Did You Know?

Curamin® Extra Strength

The beneficial health effects of the spice turmeric are primarily due to the presence of active compounds known as curcuminoids. The primary curcuminoid is curcumin, and most turmeric extracts are standardized to curcumin content. The other two most active curcuminoids are demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin. New research is focusing on the benefits for curcuminoids in boosting immune health, supporting brain function, promoting cellular health, and reducing post-exercise pain and supporting a healthy inflammation response.*
