Quality Of Life Labs Curcumin-SR Healthy Inflammation Support - 30 Vegetarian Capsules
Quality Of Life Labs Curcumin-SR Healthy Inflammation Support is unique in that it delivers the curcumin in a special micronized, sustained-release matrix. This means that it is released over time, stays in the blood longer, and is therefore active longer than regular curcumin. Curcumin, derived from turmeric, is one of the most promising ingredients for promoting a healthy inflammation response. Unfortunately, curcumin is poorly absorbed and rapidly excreted, so until now, it has had to be taken in large doses continually to achieve an effect. Curcumin-SR features the MicroActive Curcumin complex, which delivers curcumin in a special micronized, sustained-release matrix to increase absorption and bioavailability.
- Delivers sustained release over 8 hours.
- Released slowly over time so blood levels stay consistently elevated.
- Is absorbed faster.
- Elevates blood levels more quickly than regular curcumin.
- More bioavailable than regular curcumin.
Quality of Life Questions & Answers
Are their products vegetarian?
Whenever possible. Quality of Life formulates their products to be vegetarian and provides them in vegetarian capsules made from vegetable cellulose. However, many of the most-researched nutritional ingredients are derived from animal products, such as vitamin D3, chondroitin, collagen, and Neptune krill oil. Because of their commitment to clinically efficacious products, when they have to choose between a vegetarian form of an ingredient (such as vitamin D2) or an animal-derived, yet more efficacious form (such as vitamin D3), they choose to prioritize the more scientifically validated form.
Can your products be safely taken together?
In general, yes. Because their products are formulated for specific conditions, there is very little ingredient overlap among them. In some cases, where an ingredient has multiple functions (such as vitamin D), it may be included in several products, but rarely at the upper intake level (the highest level of a nutrient that can be taken ongoing with no side effects). For example, the upper intake level for vitamin D is 4,000 IU and the vitamin D content of Quality of Life products ranges from 400 to 2,000 IU per day.
Are their products safe to use while pregnant/breastfeeding?
As with any nutritional supplement, you should always consult with a health care practitioner when assessing the safety of any Quality of Life product while pregnant or breastfeeding.
When is the best time to take their products?
Some products are best taken on an empty stomach, while others are better taken with food. The very best time to take your supplements is when you remember to take them! When it comes to results, consistency is more important than timing.
Do their products contain any allergens?
Quality of Life complies with the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act, which took effect January of 2006 and mandates that any product containing one of the eight major allergens - milk, egg, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, wheat, peanuts, and soybeans - be clearly labeled.
