Curcumin for Multiple Myeloma

Curcumin (Cu) has been shown to inhibit the proliferation and survival of almost all types of (MM) tumor cells…

I am a long-term survivor of an incurable cancer called multiple myeloma (mm). I supplement with Life Extension Curcumin Elite.  

Curcumin has been researched to support a host of health issues including myeloma, heart, kidney, brain health, and many more.

It’s important to state that I take a maintenance dose of CU daily. I take one capsule (500 mg.) daily. I know of many MM patients who’s MM is active and they take more than 2 grams a day. 1000 mg. = 1 gram.

Scroll down the page to see Longvida as one of the top most bioavailable formulas of CU.

Not only has Cshown the ability to kill cancer cells, it has shown the ability to both enhance certain traditional chemotherapy’s efficacy as well as reduce toxicities.

Cu as nutritional supplement may help treat cancer, inflammation, ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteo arthritis, diabetes, depression, anxiety, cognitive function and fatigue, chronic anterior uveitis and other conditions.

Curcumin Elite   is approved by ConsumerLab.com for purity and labeled amount (you must be a member to access the report). Why do I supplement with Curcumin Elite?

  • Curcumin is well-studied, well-researched for its many health benefits-
  • Cost-effective at .63 cents-(.21 cents to $1.64 for 500 mg in ConsumeLab.com evaluation range)
  • Curcumin Elite is available through Amazon Prime-
  • 5% of your Amazon purchase will be donated to PeopleBeatingCancer to support cancer patients with research and education-

I am both a cancer survivor and cancer coach. Have you been diagnosed with multiple myeloma? What stage? I take Curcumin Elite  because I believe that is the most effective form of curcumin available.

Curcumin and Cancer Cells: How Many Ways Can Curry Kill Tumor Cells Selectively?

“Cancer is a hyperproliferative disorder that is usually treated by chemotherapeutic agents that are toxic not only to tumor cells but also to normal cells, so these agents produce major side effects. In addition, these agents are highly expensive and thus not affordable for most…

Cu has a diverse range of molecular targets, supporting the concept that it acts upon numerous biochemical and molecular cascades. Curcumin physically binds to as many as 33 different proteins, including thioredoxin reductase, cyclooxygenase-2, (COX2), protein kinase C, 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX), and tubulin. Various molecular targets modulated by this agent include transcription factors, growth factors and their receptors, cytokines, enzymes, and genes regulating cell proliferation, and apoptosis (6).

Cu has been shown to inhibit the proliferation and survival of almost all types of tumor cells…”


The Most BioAvailable Curcumin Formulas

“Based on a review of these studies, it is evident that better bioavailability of formulated curcumin (CU) products is mostly attributed to improved solubility, stability, and possibly low first-pass metabolism”

A search of the Pubmed database for the word curcumin yields 601 studies spaning health topics from multiple myeloma and colorectal cancer, to chemotherapies that synergizes with CU, to Alzheimer’s Disease, arthritis and more. Based on years of reading studies and personal accounts, I think it is safe to say that CU supplementation is safe and relatively inexpensive.

I have read about myeloma patients taking daily doses of CU from 400 milligrams to 8 grams (1000 milligrams = 1 gram). By almost any measure, CU is a safe, inexpensive wonder drug.

The only challenge is that CU is famously difficult to absorb in the body. In other words, a person has to mix curcumin with some sort of fat (coconut oil, chocolate, etc.) or take a brand of curcumin capsule that is already formulated to be more “bioavailable” in order to derive the full benefit of CU.

The study linked and exerpted below reviews different formulations of CU. The study itself lists the three most bioavailable formulation/brand of CU and I’ve added an excerpt from a further review from Consumerlab.com that lists four additional bioavailable brands of CU.

I consult the independent evaluation service Consumerlab.com frequently. For one low annual payment, I can read about and evaluate all of the nutritional supplement that I take.

Curcumin

CU is a bright yellow chemical produced by some plants. It is the principal curcuminoid of turmeric (Curcuma longa), a member of the ginger family, Zingiberaceae. It is sold as an herbal supplement, cosmetics ingredient, food flavoring, and food coloring.[1]

Bioavailable curcumin formulations: A review of pharmacokinetic studies in healthy volunteers

Curcumin is a widely studied natural compound which has shown tremendous in vitro therapeutic potential. Despite that, the clinical efficacy of the native curcumin is weak due to its low bioavailability and high metabolism in the gastrointestinal tract.

During the last decade, researchers have come up with different formulations with a focus on improving the bioavailability of curcumin. As a result, a significant number of bioavailable curcumin-based formulations were introduced with the varying range of enhanced bioavailability.

The purpose of this review is to collate the published clinical studies of curcumin products with improved bioavailability over conventional (unformulated) curcumin. Based on the literature search, 11 curcumin formulations with available human bioavailability and pharmacokinetics data were included in this review…

Based on a review of these studies, it is evident that better bioavailability of formulated curcumin products is mostly attributed to improved solubility, stability, and possibly low first-pass metabolism. The review hopes to provide a quick reference guide for anyone looking information on these bioavailable curcumin formulations.

Based on the published reports,

  • NovaSol® (185),
  • CurcuWin® (136) and
  • LongVida® (100)

exhibited over 100-fold higher bioavailability relative to reference unformulated curcumin. Suggested mechanisms accounting for improved bioavailability of the formulations and details on the bioanalysis methods are also discussed…”

Highly informative piece! Now since Life Extension has the new improvement over BCM-95, Curcumin Elite, how does it rank with Longdiva?

    Hi Frank-

    I upgraded my curcumin supplementation a year or so ago to Curcumin Elite. I decided that ginger and tumerones enhance bioavailability and had health benefits of their own.

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3282471/

    Bottom line is I don’t compare different curcumin brands anymore.
