The Uniqueness Of Composition Of BCM-95®

The Uniqueness Of Composition Of BCM-95®

Essential oils Essential oils are found naturally in turmeric rhizomes and have often been used for flavouring and colouring purposes. Essential oils constitute of various molecules such as ar-tumerone, α-tumerone, β-tumerone, etc. These have been clinically proved to offer a wide array of health benefits including inflammatory and cellular ones.

A study published in 2006 (H Kishida, et al, J Agric Food Chem 2006) suggested that the essential oil supported healthy blood glucose levels. Another study published in Food Chemistry 2012 (J Ling, et al.) used the essential oil to analyze its anti-hyperlipidaemic and antioxidant effect. Essential oils were shown to support healthy blood lipid levels and significantly suppressed oxidative reactions. The oils also prevented the damage of liver tissues induced by a high fat diet. On the basis of these observations, it was shown that ar-turmerone deserves further investigation as a natural agent for cellular health and prevention. Turmeric Root Extract Curcumin, which is widely used in the research field, is a molecule found in the rhizome of the turmeric plant.

BCM-95(CURCUGREEN) is a unique combination of Curcumin and AR-Turmerone enriched Turmeric Essential oil . This makes BCM-95 (CURCUGREEN) , uniquely 100% Turmeric Extract.

Typically, commercial curcumin consist of 71.5% curcumin, 19.5% demethoxycurcumin and 9.1% bis-demethoxycurcumin. Phenylpropenes, vanillic acid, and vanillin have also been identified in turmeric.

Terpenes To date, at least 185 compounds of terpenes have been isolated from leaves, flowers, roots and rhizomes of turmeric. Dried rhizomes usually yield about 1.5 – 5% essential oils, the components of which are responsible for the aromatic taste and smell of turmeric. Ar-turmerone, alpha turmerone and beta- turmerone are the major sesquiterpenes in turmeric oil and together account for about 40% of the essential oil.
