The use and benefits of the ingredients present in Curalyc are outlined below:

1. Curcumin C3 Complex®:

Curcumin C3 Complex® is a patented and clinically well-evaluated “Bioprotectant” composition obtained from the dried rhizomes of Curcuma longa (turmeric) and is standardized for minimum 95% Curcuminoids.

The name ‘Curcumin C3 Complex’ has reference to its three main chemical compounds: curcumin, demethoxycurcumin (DMC) and bisdemethoxycurcumin (BDMC)―collectively known as “curcuminoids”.

Curcumin C3 Complex® has the ability to neutralize free radicals, thus help support healthy inflammatory response, as well as vast associated health benefits.

It is thought to counter free radicals in two ways:

  • PREVENTION of free radical formation
  • INTERVENTION, whereby already preformed radicals are quenched

Curcumin C3 Complex® has been well recognized for its proven protective and therapeutic potential against several health conditions (Majeed et al., 2015).

2. Lycopene:

Lycopene is a bright red carotenoid found in fruits and vegetables, such as Gac, tomatoes, carrots, watermelons, pink grapefruit, pink guava and papaya. Gac fruits (Momordica cochinchinensis) are the rich source of lycopene (contain the highest amount of any known fruit or vegetable > 76 times higher than tomatoes) (Ishida et al., 2004).

Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant that provides protection against cellular damage caused by free radicals and, therefore, may play an important role in disease prevention (Dillingham and Rao, 2009).

In an 8-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled intervention study, a daily dose of 12 mg lycopene was able to significantly reduce oxidative DNA damage (p<0.01) (Zhao et al., 2006).

3. Vitamin C:

Vitamin C is a water-soluble free radical scavenger, which also goes by the name ascorbic acid. Although vitamin C is known to play vital function in the human body, its role in maintaining optimal health is discussed mostly in relation to its ability to counter free radicals as a potent antioxidant.

Its significant effect on cellular function has been implicated in processes associated with aging, including vascular, inflammatory damage and other degenerative diseases (Barrita and Sánchez, 2013).

Moreover, vitamin C is known to regenerate vitamin E in cell membranes in combination with GSH or other compounds capable of donating reducing equivalents, thus both vitamin C and E work in conjunction with one another (Nimse and Pal, 2015).

4. Vitamin E:

Vitamin E, also known as α-Tocopherol is a fat-soluble vitamin, which has the most significant role to play in human health. As an antioxidant, vitamin E protects all cells with fatty acids from being destroyed by free radicals, fights inflammation, and therefore help naturally slow down aging of cells.

It is also required for proper functioning of many organs, enzymatic activities and maintaining immune system (NIH, 2016; Moriguchi and Muraga, 2000).

5. Rosmarinic Acid:

Rosmarinic acid is a polyphenolic phytoconstituent found in many herbs of Lamiacea species like Rosemary, Sage, Basil, Thyme and Lemon balm.

Apart from being used as a preservative in foods and cosmetics, rosmarinic acid is also known for its potential antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory and antimicrobial activities.

In an in vitro-based assay system, rosmarinic acid (500 µg/mL) showed a significantly higher antioxidant potential than other compounds (Hakkim et al., 2012).

In another study, compared to caffeic acid and its other derivatives, rosmarinic acid was one of the compounds which strongly inhibited the free radicals activity (Chen et al., 1999).
