Turmeric, also known as the golden spice, is a tall plant that grows in Asia and Central America. It gives curry its yellow color and has been used in traditional Indian medicine for thousands of years to treat various health conditions.
The key compounds in turmeric are called curcuminoids. Curcumin itself is the most active ingredient and appears to be the most important. As a polyphenol, curcumin has severaladvantages to health. It ’s a strong antioxidant and has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.
However, one of the greatest downfalls of curcumin is that it ’s not well absorbed in the body. As a result, you could be missing out on its advantages to health. However, adding black pepper can help. Research supports that combining the piperine in black pepper with the curcumin in turmeric enhances curcumin absorption by up to 2,000%. There are currently two theories on how this works. First, piperine makes it easier for curcumin to pass through the intestinal wall and into your bloodstream. Second, it may slow down the breakdown of curcumin by the liver, increasing its blood levels. As a result, combining curcumin with piperine increases its potential health benefits.
Black pepper contains the bioactive compound piperine, which is an alkaloid like capsaicin, the active component found in chili powder andcayenne pepper. Piperine has been shown to help relieve nausea, headaches and poor digestion and also has anti-inflammatory properties.
While curcumin and piperine each have their own health benefits, they ’re even better together. Both turmeric and black pepper have key active ingredients that contribute to their anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and disease-fighting qualities.
Some people may experience nausea, diarrhea and mild stomach distress, especially when taking high doses for prolonged periods of time. Tulsi is a herb that soothes anupset stomach. It treats indigestion, ulcers, vomiting, gastric irritation, acidity and stomach cramps. So combining tulsi will help to prevent or relieve any associated gastric symptoms.

What is Curcumin?
Curcumin is a bright yellow chemical compound isolated from the rhizomes of the Turmeric plant (Curcuma longa), which is a member of the ginger family (Zingiberaceae). It is the principal curcuminoid and an important bioactive ingredient of Turmeric. It forms a primary ingredient of herbal supplements and cosmetics.
How is Nano Curcumin different than plain curcumin?
Curcumin is the most active ingredient present in Turmeric and has several advantages to health. It’s a strong antioxidant and has anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and many health promoting properties. In human, the biological activity of curcumin depends on its bioavailability. However, the major drawbacks for the successful therapeutic applications of Curcumin are its low water solubility, poor bioavailability and rapid metabolism. Researchers have solved these obstacles by encapsulating curcumin into nanoformulations (nanocurcumin).
The advantages of Nano-curcumin over Curcumin (native) are:
- Increased solubility and bioavailability (approx. 9-fold increase)
- Increased circulation time in body
- Longer retention in the body
- Overcome physiological barriers
- Far better health benefits than plain curcumin
- Enters organs that are almost unable to enter by curcumin rendering more effectiveness
- Higher intracellular absorption capacity (this property is important to target intracellular pathogens for infectious diseases)
- 60 folds of increase in the biological half-life
- Reduced unintended toxicity to surrounding normal cells/tissues.
Thus integrating curcumin into nanocarriers is an appropriate and fruitful choice to increase the biological effects of curcumin.
What are Nano curcumin’s health benefits?
Nano-curcumin has similar but more potent effects as compared to that of Curcumin. It possesses various biological actions like, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-mutagenic, anti-microbial, anti-tumoral, wound healing and anti-angiogenesis.
Existing research data provides evidence to support Nano-curcumin’s beneficial effects on different human diseases like:
- Cancer (Lung, Liver, Breast, Prostate, Pancreatic, Carcinoma, Myeloma and Melanoma)
- Heart Diseases
- Lung Diseases
- Chronic Kidney diseases
- Neurological Disorders (Alzheimer, Parkinsons, etc.)
- Liver Problems
- Digestive Disorders
- Viral, Bacterial and Fungal Infections
- Inflammatory Diseases
- Eye Problems
- Skin Diseases
- Cystic Fibrosis
What are the side effects of Nano Curcumin?
Curcumin supplements are considered safe and no adverse side effects have been reported at low doses. Yet, a small proportion of people may experience some mild side effects at higher doses. These may include mild digestive issues such as bloating, acid reflux, flatulence and diarrhea, and headache. The long-term effects of taking curcumin in humans are unknown.
How does Nethika Naturals Nano Curcumin work and what are its added benefits?
NETHIKA NATURAL’S CURCUMIN SUPPLEMENT contains Nano Curcumin combined with Black Pepper or Piper nigrum (natural source of Piperine) and Basil (Ocimum sanctum). Research supports that combining the piperine in black pepper with the curcumin in turmeric enhances curcumin absorption by up to 2000%. As a result, combining curcumin with piperine increases its potential health benefits.
Tulsi or Basil is known to soothe an upset stomach and helps relieve indigestion, vomiting, gastric irritation, acidity and stomach cramps. Some people may experience nausea, diarrhea and mild stomach distress, especially when taking high doses of Curcumin for prolonged periods of time. So the Tulsi present in the supplement may help to prevent or relieve any associated gastric discomfort.
What is the Dose of Nano Curcumin?
1 capsule once or twice a day after meals or as directed by a physician.
Is Nano Curcumin a good option for an immunity booster?
Curcumin helps in boosting immunity due to its anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal activities. It helps to fight against viral infection. It possesses anti-viral properties by virtue of which it inhibits the replication of the virus and thus reduces the viral load. It also reduces the damage caused by viruses due to its anti-inflammatory effect. It helps to reduce the associated symptoms and provides relief. Thus it is definitely a great Immunity Booster.
Should I be worried about anything while taking Curcumin supplements?
Turmeric/curcumin supplements are generally safe, but can cause problems only for people with gall bladder disease, kidney stones, or those taking blood-thinning or blood-sugar-lowering medications. So those people should consult a health practitioner before taking Curcumin based supplements.
