- Premium- grade turmeric extract, 95% curcumins
- Added Vitamin B12 for normal neurological and psychological function
- With 50% NRV for zinc, for normal cognitive function
- And the unique properties found in rosemary extract
This premium grade formula combines turmeric’s beneficial compounds, the curcumins, with one of the most important dietary carotenoids, known as lutein. This cutting-edge formula contains the same level of turmeric extract that guarantees a minimum of 95% curcumins together with 10mg of pure, free base lutein per two tablets.
So why lutein?
Recently, interest in lutein has grown beyond its association with eye health with the discovery that it is the main carotenoid concentrated in the brain. Researchers have uncovered a link between lutein accumulation and areas of the brain rich in fatty acids, including DHA; suggesting it may play an important role as an antioxidant. And since the average daily intake of lutein from dietary sources is estimated as low as 1-2mg (when in fact researchers believe a relevant intake should be nearer 10mg daily), then adding lutein to the formula makes sense.
A secondary reason for buying Curcumem was that I also of an arthritic knee so the anti-inflamatory properties of turmeric was a plus.
