Curcumin Solution + Triple C
Curcumin Solution + Triple CCurcumin Solution + Triple CCurcumin Solution + Triple C

Curcumin Solution is a high-tech formulation containing curcumin, the most biologically-active ingredient in turmeric. It has been developed to maximise curcumin absorption and to enable its potential to be fully exploited.

Numerous studies have demonstrated curcumin’s exceptional properties, particularly in relation to inflammation and mutations that cause cell proliferation.

Who is Curcumin Solution aimed at?

With its wide-ranging properties [anti-inflammatory (2-4), antioxidant (5), immune-modulating (6), pro-apoptotic (7) and anti-angiogenic (8-9)], Curcumin Solution is designed for anyone who wants to improve their daily life and optimise their health.

It is particularly recommended for:

  • those experiencing pain of various sorts (particularly when related to arthritis);
  • those with digestive problems (bloating, stomach ache, nausea, feelings of heaviness, loss of appetite);
  • those suffering from chronic inflammatory problems or systemic inflammation;
  • those at risk of cardiovascular problems;
  • those affected by hyperlipidaemia (elevated LDL-cholesterol and/or triglyceride levels) ;
  • those exposed to oxidative stress and/or high levels of carcinogenic oxidants (pesticides, cigarette smoke, pollution, chronic stress, etc.);
  • those with liver problems;
  • those who feel they’re ageing rapidly.

How does Curcumin Solution differ from other curcumin supplements?

Curcumin is an exceptional natural molecule but its efficacy depends on the amount absorbed by the body. Absorption is normally very low due to its instability in acid conditions, poor solubility in digestive fluids and difficulty crossing the intestinal wall (10-12).

The advantage offered by Curcumin Solution is that it significantly increases this absorption by micronizing the curcumin and making it soluble in digestive fluids using micelles (microscopic beads that mix easily in water). This is a highly ingenious process: it increases curcumin’s ability to cross the intestinal wall by a factor of 185 compared with standard curcumin. This huge increase in absorption raises the amount of curcumin circulating in, and retained by, the body (curcumin’s half-life is normally very short). By way of comparison, all other strategies employed to increase its absorption are less effective: with the addition of piperine, for example, its absorption is only multiplied 20-30 times (13-14), while incorporating curcumin into lecithin liposomes barely increases it by a factor of four.

An independent study has demonstrated that this is indeed the most bioavailable curcumin supplement on the market (15). Taking two capsules of Curcumin Solution a day results in 10-15 grams of curcumin circulating in the body, whereas it would take more than 25 capsules a day (containing 600mg of standard curcumin) to have any chance of reaching these levels. As a consequence, it’s possible to take fewer capsules and spend less money and still achieve an unparalleled level of circulating curcumin.

How does curcumin act in the body?

Curcumin is the most biologically-active compound in the rhizome of Curcuma longa. It has an impressive number of biological benefits and acts against multiple cellular targets involved in cancer (16), diabetes (17), cardiovascular problems (18-20), neurodegenerative diseases (21), rheumatism (22), etc. Its effects on inflammation and elevated blood lipids have been demonstrated in several animal and human studies (23-25). In particular, it inhibits cholesterol production by the liver (26) and reduces absorption of dietary cholesterol (27-29).

But the property which most interests researchers is curcumin’s ability to inhibit the proliferation of cancer cells. It does so by intervening at various points in their development and by stimulating the production of enzymes that facilitate their elimination (30). The problem is that the amounts shown by in vitro tests to be effective are difficult to achieve in the body - which is precisely why Curcumin Solution has been developed – to maximise its absorption.

In 2018, researchers took a giant leap forward when they identified the effects of curcumin on a protein involved in cancer cells (31).

Note: It’s important to point out that Curcumin Solution 60 Licaps™ is not meant to rival the supplement Super Curcuma 500mg, one of the best products in our catalogue and one which regularly receives high praise from our customers. Curcumin Solution 60 Licaps™ is designed more to produce systemic benefits as the curcumin it contains reaches the bloodstream more easily. As far as the digestive system is concerned, Super Curcuma 500mg remains without doubt the best turmeric supplement on the market because it concentrates the curcumin more specifically in this area.

Additional steps to maximise the benefits of Curcumin Solution

To maximise the efficacy of Curcumin Solution, the following measures can also be adopted throughout the supplementation period:

1) Take Curcumin Solution capsules at mealtimes. Curcumin is always best-absorbed when consumed with some dietary fat because fats slow down intestinal transit and increase the micelles’ contact time with the intestinal wall.

2) Increase your intake of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 from oily fish and fish oil have powerful anti-inflammatory properties, but the amounts needed are difficult to obtain from diet alone. It’s therefore better to opt for EPA and DHA supplements (3 softgels a day).

3) Increase your consumption of fruit and vegetables, and at the same time, reduce that of pro-inflammatory foods rich in omega-6 (usually highly-processed foods).

4) Incorporate anti-cancer foods into your diet. The best-known are the red fruits (as they contain ellagic acid, anthocyanidins and proanthocyanidins), citrus fruit (vitamin C, polyphenols and terpenes), cruciferous vegetables (glucosinolates) and alliaceous vegetables (allicin, thiosulfinate, thiosulfonates, monosulfides, disulfides and trisulfides).

This new curcumin formulation brilliantly combines modern technology and ancient tradition. Technology, because its development has involved a feat of scientific skill (micro-encapsulation of the curcumin). Tradition, because it maximises the potential of a substance recognised by ancient systems of medicine for at least 4000 years.

It’s a timely response to unprecedented global interest and constitutes a perfect way of benefiting from the considerable therapeutic properties of turmeric.

Note : this product should not be used as a substitute for a varied, balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. It’s important to follow the guidelines on how to take it and the recommended dose, and to use it by the ‘best before’ date. It is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or for children under 15. Keep out of children’s reach. Store in a cool, dry place.

Triple C, a combination of three forms of vitamin C

Why Triple C? In order to offer the most comprehensive and advanced formulation possible, our dietary supplement Triple C combines three specific forms of vitamin C in a single capsule:

  • ascorbic acid, the best-known water-soluble form of vitamin C;
  • calcium ascorbate, another water-soluble form of vitamin C;
  • ascorbyl palmitate, a fat-soluble form of vitamin C.
  • These three forms of vitamin C act synergistically within the body.

The essential role of vitamin C

What role does vitamin C play? The importance of this vitamin to human health is widely recognised. Confirmed by numerous scientific studies, vitamin C’s properties are beneficial, if not essential, to several vital functions. Vitamin C is best-known for its key role in maintaining the immune system, for improving the body’s natural defences. It is also recognised as a powerful natural antioxidant that helps combat oxidative stress, free radicals and cellular ageing. And vitamin C’s benefits do not stop there. On the contrary, it is involved in a multitude of metabolic reactions, with the most active form, ascorbic acid, working at many levels within the body:

  • it helps produce collagen, a protein providing mechanical resistance to stretching of the tissues;
  • it is involved in the formation of neurotransmitters such as dopamine and noradrenaline;
  • it helps produce carnitine which is central role to the transport and use of fatty acids by the mitochondria to produce energy;
  • it participates in the synthesis of red blood cells;
  • it encourages the absorption of plant-source iron;
  • it protects cells from the ageing process, acting in synergy with vitamin E, beta-carotene, le selenium, and zinc.

An essential intake in vitamin C

Where can we obtain vitamin C? The majority of mammals are able to produce vitamin C themselves, but humans lost this ability a long time ago, which is why this vitamin is classified as essential – we need to ingest it from the diet. While everyday foods such as fruit and vegetables are rich in vitamin C, they may not provide sufficient levels to cover our daily requirements. Vitamin C is fragile and is easily destroyed by light and heat. Vitamin C supplements have therefore been developed as a way of obtaining an optimal intake. Often taken to safeguard against vitamin C deficiency, vitamin C supplements are also indicated for preventing and treating a number of ailments. Of the vitamin C supplements we offer, Triple C is therefore the most popular with our customers.

Health-beneficial supplementation

What are the benefits of supplementing with vitamin C? Ensuring an optimal intake of vitamin C is essential in order to prevent deficiency or compensate for any shortfalls. Supplementation can also offer preventive and therapeutic benefits. Hence its widespread use for combatting oxidative stress, improving iron absorption, boosting the immune system, fighting temporary tiredness, preventing colds and ‘flu, lowering blood pressure and preventing hypertension, reducing the risk of heart disease, and preventing both cognitive function decline and cataracts.

Triple C, a comprehensive, optimal vitamin C formulation

Why choose Triple C? Popular with our customers for its efficacy and value for money, Triple C is produced from top quality ingredients. It has been specifically formulated to combine three forms of vitamin C in a single capsule, providing an optimal dose of 200mg of ascorbic acid, 300mg of calcium ascorbate and 15mg of ascorbyl palmitate. Its efficacy is further enhanced by the addition of 50mg of flavonoids. Available to purchase from our website, the recommended dose for this vitamin C supplement is one to two capsules a day. Ordered in just a few clicks, and delivered within a few days, you could soon be benefiting from this comprehensive formulation.
