4. What are the ingredients and what are they good for?
||Per 2 vege-caps
|Cavacurmin® Turmeric Curcuminoids Complex (rhizome) (Turmeric root extract, gamma cyclodextrin) (minimum 14% curcuminoids)
- Turmeric root is traditionally used in India and South-East Asia to alleviate aches and pain.
- Curcuminoids are the active components of turmeric; however they are large, fat-soluble molecules that are difficult to absorb orally. Curcumin is the most important curcuminoid in turmeric root extracts.
- Cavacurmin® Turmeric Curcuminoids Complex (rhizome) combines turmeric root extract with gamma-cyclodextrin, a type of glucose molecule with a hydrophobic (fat loving) center and a hydrophilic (water loving) exterior. It essentially binds to and wraps around the curcumin, allowing it to become water dispersible, making it easier to absorb.
- A small, human clinical trial indicates that Cavacurmin® Turmeric Curcuminoids Complex (rhizome) is more than 40 times more bioavailable than standard curcumin.
- Curcumin helps to promote a normal inflammatory response, and preliminary evidence suggests that curcumin may help to support optimal joint overall health.
- Clinical trials indicate that curcumin helps reduce everyday joint aches and pains, while improving joint flexibility and function.
- Curcumin has also been shown to a maintain normal inflammatory response by decreasing the presence of key markers of inflammation in the body.
|White Willow Extract (bark) 50% salicin
- Willow bark has been used throughout the centuries in China and Europe, and continues to be used today for the treatment of pain
- The bark of white willow contains salicin, which has been shown to help promote a normal inflammatory response by working on several enzyme pathways which means it helps alleviate everyday aches and pains.
- Compared to placebo, willow bark extract helped alleviate everyday aches and pains at the end of a two week trial.
- Helps promote a normal inflammatory response.
- In addition to salicin, willow bark extract contains flavonoids that help protect joints against oxidative stress.
- Helps relieve everyday aches and pains.
- Several studies suggest that white willow bark extract helps relieve everyday lower back pain.
|UC-II® Standardized Chicken Cartilage (providing 10 mg Undenatured Type II Collagen)
- UC-II® is a patented undenatured form of cartilage derived from chicken sternums. It is processed under low heat to preserve the structure of the collagen.
- It is the only undenatured form of collagen on the market—all other type II collagens are denatured (hydrolyzed) which may reduce their effectiveness.
- Studies indicate that UC-II may be twice as effective as glucosamine and chondroitin in maintaining joint comfort, mobility and flexibility.
Some of your product labels list Cavacurmin® Turmeric Curcuminoids Complex (rhizome) and some say Cavamax® W8 Curcumin Complex®. What is the difference?
These are the same curcumin, prepared in the same exact way with the same exact potency. The vendor changed the name, and some of our labels were printed before the name change and some were printed after. You are getting the same ingredient either way.
5. Are there any ingredient standardizations?
