Curcumin is the key bioactive curcuminoid found in the roots of the turmeric plant (Curcuma longa) that has a long history in traditional medicine.
In a 2013 randomized double-blind and placebo controlled study on 100 type 2 diabetics, curcumin supplementation was shown to significantly reduce both fasting blood sugar and HbA1c. The researchers suspect the glucose lowering effect is due to the ability of curcumin to reduce free fatty acids in the blood.1
Researchers in a 9 month study with 240 pre-diabetics reported that compared to 16.4% of participants in the placebo group, 0% of the curcumin group developed type 2 diabetes during the study. They also reported curcumin improved the overall function of the beta-cells in the pancreases of the participants.2
Curcumin may help lower blood sugar levels and prevent the development of type 2 diabetes.
In addition to curcumin found in Curcumin Complex by Beyond Vita®, there are several other nutrients and herbs which have been shown to help balance blood sugar. We combined them into one simple formula called Blood Sugar Support by Beyond Vita®.*
