Consumers are increasingly being made aware that inflammation is the root of all chronic degenerative conditions, and curcumin is one of the main leaders in fitting a supplement into that health-promoting paradigm.
Many studies have been carried out since 2014, revealing the health benefits of this ancient supplement. In 2019 alone, according to PubMed, 1,924 studies on curcumin were published, including 913 human trials. Of these published studies, many support its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, particularly in areas relating to cardiovascular disease (2), metabolic syndrome (4), colitis remission (5), brain health (6), depression (7), skin health (8) and joint health and arthritis (9).
All of this research into the varied ways in which curcumin can maintain heath has not gone unnoticed by consumers. Demand in sales has soared in recent years, with sales tripling from 2013-2016, according to SPINS. The global curcumin market size is expected to grow by $32.11 million between 2020 and 2024, predicts Technavio. This is an estimate that takes into account the surge in sales due to coronavirus.
Brands are now offering curcumin with techniques to boost bioavailability—an important goal because of curcumin’s difficulty in being absorbed. Black pepper, which contains piperine – a natural substance that significantly enhances the absorption of curcumin is usually found in curcumin supplements. Without this pinch of pepper, most of the curcumin just passes through the digestive tract, without delivering any health benefits.
