Curcumin Extreme™ is a supplement that promotes numerous biological functions, including overall liver health and normal production of detoxification enzymes, helping to scavenge toxins in the body that can build up over time. Curcumin Extreme also promotes overall cell integrity, cognitive health, and maintenance of healthy glutathione levels. Glutathione is known as the master antioxidant in the human body that preserves and protects the liver, brain and other body tissues from free radicals. Furthermore, glutathione supports two other powerful antioxidants, vitamins C and E.*
Curcumin Extreme features the patented and significantly researched ingredient, Curcugreen™†. Scientists have long been aware of the wide array of health benefits from the Indian spice Curcuma longa (common name: turmeric), which is the source of the phytochemical curcumin. In general, most curcumins have poor bioavailability (poor absorption), often requiring high serving sizes or enhancers in order to promote better absorption. Unlike many curcumin products on the market, Curcumin Extreme™ with Curcugreen†™ provides exceptional bioavailability so you can actively receive maximum benefits.
Curcugreen™ is safe and does not contain any synthetic enhancers.1 It also delivers a significant amount of bioactive curcumin into the blood and demonstrates high bioavailability. Unlike many of its competitors, Curcugreen™ is a turmeric extract, containing a proprietary blend of curcuminoids and turmeric oils.1 The AR tumerone± compound in turmeric supports the bio-activity and absorption of the curcumin in Curcugreen™ without harming the integrity of the product.1
Curcumin Extreme also includes broccoli seed extract, a powerful source of sulphoraphane glucosinolates. Sulforaphanes support the normal production of phase II liver detoxification enzymes including glutathione synthase, heme-oxygenase and catalase. Glutathione is considered the master antioxidant in the human body that serves to protect the brain and other body tissues from free radicals.
This product is free of these common allergens: gluten, soy, wheat and dairy.

Curcugreen™†is a branded curcumin ingredient made from turmeric extract which contains a proprietary blend of curcuminoids and turmeric oils. Though most curcumins have poor bioavailability, Curcugreen offers a high level of oral bioavailability in order for the body to reap the full spectrum of health benefits curcumin can provide.*
Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. Turmeric, used historically for health and cosmetic purposes, as well as a fabric dye and a culinary spice, comes from the Curcuma longa plant. Curcumin, in and of itself, has also been used to support health and for cooking. Presently the science community has shown an interest in learning more about curcumin and its possible benefits.*
In studies, curcumin has shown evidence of being able to support immune, cognitive and liver health. It also appears to boast antioxidant properties and to protect the body from free radicals. Curcumin has been shown to support the production of enzymes for glutathione and its synthesis, as well as metabolism.2 Glutathione is produced naturally by the body and has antioxidant properties.*
In addition to its immune-supporting activity, curcumin has been shown to support normal Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and NF-kappaB (NF-kB) levels in the body through multiple mechanisms. NF-kB is a transcription factor, meaning that it functions to support the normal formation of a specific protein encoded by a gene – specifically the COX-2 gene.3*
Curcumin has been shown to help maintain neurological health and cognitive function. Curcumin may help by promoting healthy levels of amyloid-β protein (a protein fragment) in the brain. In recent studies, researchers have linked normal levels of amyloid-β protein to neurological and cognitive health, such as memory and mood. Another neuroprotective property of curcumin is its ability to promote normal levels of glutathione, superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase in the brain, which can help maintain the health of neurological tissues. SOD and catalase are enzymes that protect cells.*
Curcumin supports liver health and its functions. In studies, curcumin has shown to support the normal production of phase II detoxification enzymes in the liver. These detoxification enzymes promote the body’s natural defense systems and function as powerful indirect antioxidants, helping to neutralize harmful heavy metals, toxins and pollutants. For example, curcumin’s support of glutathione synthesis supports the detoxification function of glutathione transferase. Curcumin also promotes normal liver tissue. *

‡Curcuminoids are compounds in the spice, turmeric. One of these compounds is curcumin, which is the main active ingredient.
What is curcumin?
Curcumin is present in the spice turmeric and frequently used in Indian food. Its chemical makeup is responsible for the yellow coloring of turmeric and is its most active ingredient. For thousands of years, curcumin was used to promote health in India and other parts of Asia. Curcumin is known for being a powerful antioxidant in addition to offering many other health benefits.*
What is glutathione and why is it important?
Glutathione is an antioxidant made of amino acids that the body produces in the liver. It plays an important part in phase II of the detoxification process, helps protect the body against toxins, combats against free radicals and oxidative stress, and promotes immune health.*
I’ve heard that curcumin’s bioavailability is not high. Does that mean Curcumin Extreme™ will absorb poorly?
Curcumin does in fact have poor bioavailability and is rapidly metabolized – meaning it needs a little help to make the most of its benefits. Curcumin Extreme™ tackles this issue with Curcugreen™†, a safe, clinically studied ingredient with excellent bioavailability so your body can better reap the health benefits of active curcumin.*
Who should take Curcumin Extreme™?
Anyone 18 years of age or older can take Curcumin Extreme™, especially those who want to support normal liver detoxification activity, help maintain healthy glutathione levels, and promote neurological health and a strong immune system.*

What other Market America products work well with Curcumin Extreme™?
Due to the multitude of environmental stressors that can cause oxidative stress, leading to multiple free radicals forming, we need a combination of powerful antioxidants to help protect all areas of our bodies. In additional to Curcumin Extreme, Isotonix OPC-3® is another important antioxidant with multiple benefits to the body. Oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) are bioflavonoids (complex organic plant compounds) found in fruits, vegetables and certain tree barks that provide exceptional nutritional benefits to the human body. Studies have shown OPCs to be more powerful than vitamin C and vitamin E in neutralizing free radicals.*
Prime™ Joint Support Formula by Isotonix® is another product that helps neutralize the end products caused by inflammation. The body’s inflammatory response is a natural process. It is an essential component of the body’s defense system and can be triggered from numerous internal and external factors. Incorporating Prime™ Joint Support Formula into your daily regimen can help support relief from temporary inflammation associated with the normal aging process and daily activity, as well as maintaining healthy joint fluidity and flexibility.* You should always consult your physician before adding new supplements to your daily routine.
