Not All Curcumin Based Supplements Are Created Equal

There have been many academic publications on the miracles of Curcumin for Aging Health. Here's a description of its therapeutic properties:  The desirable preventive or putative therapeutic properties of curcumin have also been considered to be associated with its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Because free-radical-mediated peroxidation of membrane lipids and oxidative damage of DNA and proteins are believed to be associated with a variety of chronic pathological complications such as cancer, atherosclerosis, and neurodegenerative diseases, curcumin is thought to play a vital role against these pathological conditions. The anti-inflammatory effect of curcumin is most likely mediated through its ability to inhibit cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), lipoxygenase (LOX), and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS). COX-2, LOX, and iNOS are important enzymes that mediate inflammatory processes. Improper upregulation of COX-2 and/or iNOS has been associated with the pathophysiology of certain types of human cancer as well as inflammatory disorders. Because inflammation is closely linked to tumor promotion, curcumin with its potent anti-inflammatory property is anticipated to exert chemopreventive effects on carcinogenesis. Hence, the past few decades have witnessed intense research devoted to the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin. In this review, we describe both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin, the mode of action of curcumin, and its therapeutic usage against different pathological conditions see: (Adv Exp Med Biol. 2007;595:105-25).

In our in vitro testing,  We found that all Curcumin based supplement are not created equal. By testing formulations on adult mesenchymal stem cells, we found widely varying degrees of cell migration. We found that the Curcumin needed to ground as fine as possible and conjugated with a lipid carrier. Too coarse and no carrier and no impact on the stem cells. We believe that Curcumin works therapeutically, by energizing stem cells to migrate to site of cell/tissue damage.

We use the formulation that best energizes stem cells in our StemTrophin Supplement. We use StemTrophin to treat our clients with Autoimmune and Degenerative Diseases. We test their blood serum for immune/inflammatory response, oxidative stress and stem cell activity factors (cytokines and growth factors). We found most show positive moderation when tested 6 and 12 months after commencement of their taking StemTrophin. These treatments typically include Stem-Kine + minerals (like selenium) and multi-vitamins.

StemTropkin works! It can help protect you from tissue damaging oxidants, age related aches and pains and speed recovery.
