ASIN : B0013OVSUS
Description : Curcumin 95 is an 18:1 extract of the antioxidants found in the spice turmeric root. Curcumin 95 contains 95% curcuminoids (including curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin), which are antioxidants. Specifically, curcumin and its derivatives protect DNA against oxidative damage induced by reactive oxygen species.
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a bright yellow spice and a traditional remedy that has been used as a medicine, condiment and flavoring since 600 BC. The rhizome (underground stem) is the part of the plant that is harvested and ground to make the spice. The key bioactive constituents found in turmeric are three kinds of curcuminoids: curcumin, demethoxyl-curcumin, and bisdemethoxyl-curcumin. All three components are structurally similar although curcumin seems to be the most documented constituent. Curcumin and these related curcuminoids appear to affect human health through antioxidant activity and possible modulation of 5-lipo-oxygenase (LOX) and cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes.*
Turmeric root extract promotes a healthy inflammatory response* and protects DNA from oxidative damage*.
Contains 95 percent curcuminoids.
Antioxidant & Detoxification
Curcuminoids (hereinafter referred to as curcumin) also exhibit strong antioxidant activity, enhance cellular resistance to oxidative damage, and provide antioxidant protection against DNA damage.* Curcumin also enhances the body’s natural antioxidant glutathione levels, which in turn aids the liver in detoxification.* Turmeric has also been found to have hepatoprotective (i.e., liver-protective) properties against a variety of liver-toxic chemicals.*
In research on people with suboptimal joint function, curcumin was found to be useful for promoting a healthy inflammatory response, while promoting comfort and flexibility.* In a double-blind study, curcumin was found to be superior to a placebo or other study compounds supporting a healthy post-surgical inflammatory response.*
Other Health Effects
Constituents of turmeric exert several protective effects on the gastrointestinal tract, most likely via its antioxidant activity. A double-blind trial found turmeric helpful for people with indigestion and effective in animal research in promoting healthy digestive function.*
Via its antioxidant activity, curcumin may help promote cardiovascular health, especially by decreasing the propensity of low density lipoprotein (LDL) to oxidize.* Research continues to suggest that oxidized LDL is one of the more pernicious forms of cholesterol in relation to cardiovascular health.*
Jarrow Formulas is a natural botanical extract from the spice turmeric root. Curcumin 95 contains 95 percent curcuminoids (including curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin), which are scientifically well-documented antioxidants.* Specifically, curcumin and its derivatives support DNA integrity and protect cells against oxidative damage induced by reactive oxygen species.*

Review : Jarrow Curcumin-95 50 mgs
I bought these because I’d been reading that curcumin (an ingredient in turmeric) is helpful in controlling psoriasis. I’ve been on Soriatane, a prescription capsule, for several years and taking a half dose (one Soriatane cap per day) plus two capsules of the curcumin seems just as effective as the full dose of Soriatane with way fewer side effects. Soriatane is insanely expensive and can really beat up your liver, so the curcumin experiment seemed reasonable to me. Two months in and it appears to be working just fine. My doctor is pleased with my latest labs and my psoriasis is manageable (not gone, but better than it was on just the half dose of Soriatane — about the same as it was on a full dose of Soriatane), so I’m happy with this product. Note: psoriasis flares and wanes and you usually never know why, but usually in January mine is really bad. This year it’s not too bad, though a half dose of Soriatane does not control it. I definitely think the curcumin has helped, and…
