Tripernol Plus ® from bio-mer: A Green Lipped Mussel / Curcumin Anti-Inflammatory & Antioxidant Supplement for Overall Health
Tripernol Plus ® is an exciting new anti-inflammatory supplement that contains both green lipped mussel oil and curcumin. Curcumin is the active ingredient in Turmeric. Turmeric is an orange colored rhizome (a rhizome is a root-like underground stem). Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a member of the ginger family. Turmeric has been used in India for thousands of years as a cooking spice, medicine, beauty aid and dye. Curcumin is a powerful anti-oxidant. It is 5 – 8 times more powerful than the antioxidants found in Vitamin E, and 3 times more powerful than the antioxidants in grape seed or pine bark extract.

A STUDY OF CURCUMIN’S EFFECTIVENESS FOR ARTHRITIS RELIEF
“This research, from Italy, was a three-month trial involving 50 patients diagnosed by x-ray with osteoarthritis of the knee. The Italian team was investigating the effect on arthritis symptoms of a curcumin-based preparation optimized for better absorption. Participating patients took the formulation in addition to standard medical treatment; those in the second group continued following their physicians’ recommendations. After 90 days, the researchers found a 58 percent decrease in overall reported pain and stiffness as well as an improvement in physical functioning among the curcumin group compared to the controls. They also found, via a standardized testing procedure, a 300 percent improvement in the emotional well-being of the curcumin patients compared with the others. And blood tests showed a 16-fold decline in C-reactive protein, a marker for inflammation. Patients in the curcumin group were able to reduce their use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs by 63 percent, compared to the other group.” (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/andrew-weil-md/turmeric-health-have-a-happy-new-year_b_798328.html, http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/QAA400915/Curcumin-or-Turmeric.html)
“The National Institutes of Health lists 24 current studies on the effects of turmeric and its chief active component, curcumin.”
- Curcumin seems to delay liver damage that can eventually lead to cirrhosis, according to preliminary experimental research at the Medical University Graz in Austria.
- Kansas State University research found that adding certain spices, including turmeric, can reduce the levels of heterocyclic amines — carcinogenic compounds that are formed when meats are barbecued, boiled or fried — by up to 40 percent.
- Rodent studies at the University of Texas indicate that curcumin inhibits the growth of a skin cancer, melanoma and also slows the spread of breast cancer into the lungs.
- Researchers from the University of South Dakota have found that pretreatment with curcumin makes cancer cells more vulnerable to chemo and radiotherapy.
- Epidemiologists have hypothesized that the turmeric that is part of daily curries eaten in India may help explain the low rate of Alzheimer’s disease in that country. Among people aged 70 to 79, the rate is less than one-quarter that of the United States.
- Laboratory studies suggest that curcumin acts as a weak phytoestrogen and seems to have cancer protective effects.
- Lab studies have also shown that curcumin induces programmed death of colon cancer cells, and clinical trials are investigating the use of curcumin in treatment of colon cancer.
- Curcumin suppresses micro-inflammation in the GI tract associated with inflammatory bowel disease.
