Can it be this easy to lower your cholesterol and LDL?
The following research compiled data from several randomized controlled studies that
investigated the effects of turmeric and curcumin on blood triglycerides, total cholesterol, LDL
cholesterol, and HDL cholesterol in subjects with metabolic diseases (Yuan F, et.al., 2019).
The above-mentioned compounds are all cardiovascular risk factors, with LDL cholesterol being
the most important one to keep low. The reason is that oxidized LDL cholesterol interacts with
macrophages a type of white blood cells and create atherosclerosis (Lara-Guzmán OJ, et.al.,
This is what the researchers found.
Turmeric and curcuminoids could lower blood triglycerides by 19.1 mg/dL, total cholesterol by
11.4 mg/dL, and LDL cholesterol by 9.83 mg/dL. HDL cholesterol was increased by 1.9 mg/dL.
Curcumin was more effective than turmeric.
Both turmeric and curcumin which is the major active ingredient in turmeric are not well
There is however now curcumin which has been made to significantly improve

- Curcumin is a good antioxidant but it is especially effective in helping to reduce inflammation.
- For these reasons, curcumin provides many health benefits.
- The raw material used in the Better Curcumin formula is the only form of curcumin shown to pass through the blood-brain barrier and improve memory.
- We added boron to provide even more benefits. There is no other formula like this.
