Curcumin has shown to help control, adjust, boost and adapt the function of our immune system to the body’s health needs, when confronted with pain, illness and disease. It may amplify the body's defence against infection, reduce cell damage and deterioration, prevent inflammatory conditions and prevent the onset of lifestyle diseases.

Curcumin has potent antioxidant qualities that protect the body from the negative effects of free radicals. In excess, free radicals cause unnatural damage to cells, protein and DNA. Studies suggest, Curcumin’s abundant antioxidants may help scavenge these free radicals, reduce oxidative stress and inhibit the onset of chronic diseases.
