Turmeric is a golden spice which is derived from the root of the Curcuma longa plant, belonging to the Zingiberaceae family. It has been used for centuries in traditional Ayurvedic remedies and is now widely used as a modern-day natural medicine for reducing inflammation as well as having antioxidant properties.
Turmeric contains many active compounds called curcuminoids and Polysaccharides. Curcumin is the most abundant curcuminoid found inside the turmeric plant, however as it is fat-soluble and found in small proportions in the turmeric root; around 3% by weight. Curcumin is extracted from the Turmeric rhizome using polar solvents like Ethanol. The bioavailability of Curcumin is considerately low, this means that a large amount of turmeric would have to be taken to reap the benefits. As it is very poorly absorbed into the body on its own, it will need to be combined with another substance (for example, Piper nigrum, otherwise known as black pepper) to increase its bioavailability to show its full benefits.
Turmerosaccharides are bioactive polysaccharides which are naturally water-soluble, hence they are absorbed much faster and better in the body than curcuminoids. Tumarcin®, is the first-ever water-soluble extract of turmeric, containing Turmerosaccharides. They are extracted from Turmeric rhizome using non polar solvents like water and hot steam. They are 100% naturally bioavailable.
Avalife Full Spectrum Turmeric, is formulated combining the polar component – Curcumin and non polar component Turmerosaccharides in Turmeric. This polar & non polar blend making it the most beneficial product on the market for your body and overall wellbeing.
The recent clinical trials results show the effects of tumerosaccharides on your body are astounding, especially if you’re active or suffer from soreness from overexertion.
A recent study found that turmerosaccharides reduced joint tenderness, crepitation, swelling, and effusion related to overuse, while increasing joint function and flexibility. Patients with primary knee osteoarthritis received either turmerosaccharides, glucosamine sulfate, a combination of turmerosaccharides and glucosamine sulfate, or a placebo for 42 days. The efficacy of the different treatments was assessed during the treatment period, on both day 21 and day 42 of the study. The analysis of post-treatment scores following the administration of turmerosaccharides at each clinical visit showed a significant decrease in joint issues compared to the placebo. The turmerosaccharides treated group also showed a significant decrease in the use of their standard medication, along with clinical and subjective improvement compared to placebo.
Another study on turmerosaccharides’ effect on human knee cartilage, found that it protects cartilage homeostasis, which means that it balances out the natural rate of synthesis and degradation, keeping joints happily balanced. Interleukin 1 beta (a natural protein involved with inflammation) and hydrogen peroxide (which is generally toxic to cells) are both bad news bears for chondrocytes, which are your cartilage producing cells. This study looked at the effects of turmerosaccharides by exposing these chondrocytes to these toxins with and without the turmerosaccharides, then measuring markers indicating cell degradation, aging, and death, as well as cartilage creation, degradation, and general inflammation. The presence of turmerosaccharides decreased cartilage cell destruction and general inflammation in the knee cartilage cells, and also protected compounds that improve cartilage creation, such as glycosaminoglycans and type II collagen.
In other studies done on animals, turmerosaccharides were shown to significantly reduce acute and chronic inflammation and support a balanced inflammatory response as well as increase gene expression of type II collagen. Somehow, this ancient molecule is acting as a sort of rocket fuel for the joints, which is wonderful news for any fitness enthusiasts, aging individual, injured athlete or anyone else who needs a hefty dose of natural joint support.
