A new curcumin, 185 times more powerful

In Europe, statistics show that one in two men and one in three women will develop cancer in their lifetime. Among these cancers, the most common are those of the colon, breast, prostate and lung.

In India, the incidence of these cancers has been found to be 10 times lower than in Europe!

There, prostate cancer is even a rare disease.

After years of research, scientists have managed to unravel this mystery. They came to the conclusion that this almost miraculous phenomenon was the result, at least in part, of the abundance of turmeric in Indian cuisine.

Thanks to this research, we now know the mechanisms behind anticancer benefits of turmeric. Professor Philippe Chollet, an oncologist at the Jean-Perrin Center in Clermont-Ferrand, explains that “curcumin is a cancer prevention agent”.

It is first of all its so-called “pro-apoptotic” virtues that give it this power. Apoptosis is neither more nor less than suicide of the cancer cell. It rids your body of dangerous cells that reproduce abnormally and form tumors.

“Turmeric plays this role of vacuum cleaner” dangerous cells, says Professor Bommelaer. More precisely, curcumin will slow the development of cancer cells [1] and help your body to eliminate them more easily [2].

At the Clermont – Ferrand hospital, cancer researchers and the medical team are conducting a unique experiment in France. Since 2013, they have combined the use of curcumin with conventional anti-cancer treatments, particularly for the most advanced breast and prostate cancers.

Curcumin soon prescribed by all oncologists?

According to the head of the department of Clermont-Ferrand Regional Center for Cancer Control, curcumin is used to increase the effectiveness of chemotherapy and reduce their side effects (nausea, diarrhea, fatigue, pain, weight loss …) [3] ].

All studies to date have shown that curcumin is safe and very well tolerated even at high doses.

The anticancer effects of curcumin are so promising that many researchers are convinced that in the coming years, when other clinical studies have been published, curcumin will be prescribed by all oncologists and for all types of cancer.

In addition to its benefits against cancer, curcumin has also shown dramatic results against many other diseases.

Stronger than ibuprofen against rheumatism

As you probably know, rheumatism is mainly caused by inflammation. Curcumin will act at the heart of your joints to extinguish the fire caused by inflammation [4].

In 2014, a study of 40 people with osteoarthritis of the knee clearly showed that supplementation with 1500 mg of curcumin daily for 6 weeks reduced knee pain .

These people felt more comfortable doing daily tasks such as going down and climbing stairs, driving a car, shopping, getting out of bed, cleaning [5] …

Another study indicates that turmeric is as effective as ibuprofen against osteoarthritis, with fewer side effects (ibuprofen can cause holes in the stomach [6]).

Curcumin soothes fire in your intestines

Studies have shown that curcumin aids digestion and alleviates even severe intestinal disorders.

For people with irritable bowel syndrome, curcumin stimulates intestinal mobility and food fermentation by intestinal microflora [7]. This action reduces symptoms in 67% of cases, according to a study [8].

The anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin also relieve Crohn’s disease and rectocolitis. In addition, the effects are visible after only two months of supplementation [9]. Thanks to this action, the risks of aggravation decrease (colon cancer, bowel obstruction).

Beneficial for the heart and fragile arteries

Numerous clinical studies have highlighted the beneficial effect of curcumin on cardiovascular disease .

One of them was performed on 121 people who underwent coronary bypass surgery. These people are known to be much more likely to have myocardial infarction.

The results show that curcumin consumption before surgery reduced the risk of myocardial infarction by 56% [10].

It slows the aging of the brain

In addition to protecting your heart, curcumin slows the aging of your brain and prevents Alzheimer’s disease. How do we know?

As for cancer, the prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease is four times lower in India than in Western countries. One study even confirmed that people who consumed the most turmeric were those who were least affected by Alzheimer’s disease [11].

The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin have been shown to protect neurons [12]. But, more interestingly, studies have shown that curcumin reduces the formation of amyloid plaques as well as the formation of fibers within neurons, two factors related to the onset of Alzheimer’s [13] . It also helps your brain to create new neurons [14].

The true potential of curcumin is still ignored!

Despite the many studies already conducted, scientists believe that the field of action of curcumin is only partially explored to date. In other words, certain virtues remain to be discovered .

As inflammation plays a major role in most chronic diseases , researchers believe that the anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin could offer hope to millions of additional patients.

For example, those with neurodegenerative diseases (dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease), lung diseases, autoimmune diseases (multiple sclerosis, lupus, scleroderma) and tumors (cell clusters) [15].

But the price of turmeric is low compared to competing medicines and therapies. It is a gift of nature accessible to all.

However, as I told you, not all curcumines are the same.

The different curcumin

The problem with turmeric found in grocery stores is that it is not very rich in curcumin, the active ingredient that affects our health. You should absorb very large amounts to start benefiting from it.

In addition, curcumin is not easily assimilated by the body . By nature, curcumin is quickly eliminated. It is said that it is not very bioavailable. This limits its effectiveness [16].

Several techniques have therefore been developed to increase its absorption: purification, the addition of piperine (an active ingredient extracted from black pepper), the nanoemulsion or its combination with phospholipids. These techniques have increased the bioavailability of curcumin up to 29 times. These first advances were encouraging but not sufficient therapeutically.

The discovery that changes everything

Clinical studies showing a beneficial effect of curcumin on health have sometimes used up to 12 grams of curcumin per day, which is equivalent to more than 20 capsules of a food supplement containing first-generation curcumin which I have just to talk to you

Fortunately, researchers in the University of Stuttgart, Germany, developed a breakthrough in 2014 that “encapsulates” curcumin inside fatty acid molecules.

This impressive technological advance has made it possible to multiply the bioavailability and therefore the effectiveness of this new form of curcumin by 185 compared to a classic curcumin [17]!

A patented product

This new form of patented curcumin is called “NovaSol® Curcumin”. It is the most powerful curcumin in the world .

You only need 2 capsules per day (1000 mg) to receive the equivalent of 11 g of classic curcumin, a therapeutic dose recommended by specialists .

A clinical study was conducted with NovaSol® Curcumin in patients with a brain tumor. The results revealed that after only 4 days of supplementation , detectable amounts of curcumin were found in the tumor and impaired its energy metabolism [18].

You find this effectiveness against other health problems for which curcumin has demonstrated its benefits: osteoarthritis, body aches, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, risk of cardiovascular events (heart attack, stroke …), Alzheimer , diabetes, hypertension, obesity, depression, liver problems, ulcers, psoriasis, immune weakness.

By taking NovaSol® Curcumin, you also avoid the risks associated with preparations using piperine, as this active ingredient can interfere with certain drug treatments and have a long-term negative effect on the intestinal wall, resulting in food allergies, intolerances, even autoimmune reactions. You also avoid the risk of allergies associated with the use of curcumin mixed with liposomes made of soy lecithin.

How can you get this powerful curcumin without breaking the bank?

Products containing Novasol® Curcumin remain affordable compared to products containing basic curcumin.

The ingenious manufacturing process is not so expensive and everyone can access this powerful curcumin without breaking the bank .

However, it is a difficult product to find because of its recent discovery. Few distributors offer it and many pharmacists and doctors have not heard of it yet. The only sources available in France for the moment are under the two known brands Solgar (1 box of 30 days (800 mg / day): 49.90 euros), in organic store, and Cell’Innov (1 box 30 days (1000 mg / day): 39.90 euros), cheaper but only on the Internet.

Cheers !
