Turmeric root, a revered East Indian spice, contains several types of curcuminoids, of which curcumin is the most potent and clinically studied. Curcumin-95 is a curcuminoid extract standardized to 95% pure curcumin. Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory and has been traditionally used to treat joint pain and various types of chronic pain, although large doses may be required for inflammation. It can help protect cells and prevent oxidation of cholesterol and cell membranes. Curcumin also has antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral effects, blocks abnormal cellular growth, promotes healthy cholesterol levels and supports cardiovascular health, despite its main use for arthritis and joint pain.
