Nutrition Journal | Abstract | Diverse effects of a low dose supplement of lipidated curcumin in healthy middle aged people

Curcumin extracts of turmeric are proposed to produce health benefits. To date, human intervention studies have focused mainly on people with existing health problems given high doses of poorly absorbed curcumin.

 

In this small study, absorbable low doses of curcumin were seen to produce positive effects in healthy middle aged people. The results of the small study indicate that curcumin helps to protect health heart, brain, and immune system function.
