In the last decade, preclinical studies conducted on various generic and proprietary curcumin preparations (including BCM-95 and other preparations) have reported that curcumin acts on multiple biological targets and has cellular effects that suggest anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and immunomodulatory activities.2,3,5 Numerous reviews in the past several years have detailed the potential mechanisms by which curcumin and curcuminoid mixtures might benefit human health. Researchers have examined potential health benefits related to oral hygiene12 and oral cancer,13 eye health,14 vascular health,15,16 metabolic syndrome,17 diabetes,18 inflammatory bowel disease,19 ulcerative colitis,20 neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease,21 and depression.22 In addition, the results of preliminary clinical studies of curcumin or curcuminoid formulations as adjunct treatments for certain cancers are promising.4,23
