In January I began taking a supplement that had turmeric in it. I did so for a month and intermittently made smoothies with fresh turmeric. I’d read good things such as; regulating inflammation, keeps pimples at bay, clear pimples scars, fights sings of ageing detoxifies liver and improves heart health. Naturally, as a 40 plus lady this root was ticking all the boxes for me. Then, I received an invitation to Bioglan’s pop breakfast featuring their new product Active Curcumin. After the event, I received on box of the product to trial. This is my Bioglan Active Curcumin review.
What is Curmum
Curcumin is one of 3 different curcuminoids in tumeric but isthe one with the most active biological properties. If you have seen in pics of Insta you will have noticed that Turmeric looks like ginger, well… because it is a type of ginger. It is curcumin that gives turmeric its characteristic yellow colour.

Bioglan’s Curcumin has been on the market in Australia for 2 1/1 years. It’s their hero product. The English market is now ready for it. So, at the pop-up breakfaster, diners were brought up to speed on the benefits of curcumin. Bioglan says after 30 days of Active Curcumin, you will notice the difference.
I began my trial of Bioglan’s Active Curcumin in February. I was interested in its claims and an anti-inflammatory and muscle recovery treatment
Curcumin has long been thought to have anti-inflammatory properties and in depth studies have shown that it decreases diseases or conditions where inflammation is implicated. It doesn’t discriminate where it reduce inflammation, mostly by reduction in cytokines. This means it is important in a range of different therapeutic uses including against ulcerative colitis, osteoarthritis, kidney conditions. (Chainani-Wu 2012, Hanai 2006, Khajehdehi 2012
I regularly use Omega suppliants for a similar reason. So, I was concerned that the supplements would make each other in-effective. Bioglan informed me, while omega works best for heart health, curcumin would be best for all round good health and muscle recovery. They also assured me, I could continue with my turmeric smoothie treats. Up to 500 mg can be taken without any side effects.
The benefits of Active Curcumin include: muscle recovery, joint inflammation, digestive and antioxidant.
I’ve been taking one curcumin capsule daily after breakfast. The best test was the day after a sporty photo shoot that I took part in. I was certain that I’d be in pain and discomfort for days after. As if by a miracle, I was perfectly fine. Perhaps I may have had a jumpstart because of the turmeric supplement I was taking prior to Active Curcumin. I’m not sure but I can say for the past month, I’m been slowing increasing the intensity of my workouts but I suffer next to no aches the following day. Best of all, the additional benefit of clear skin.
Bioglan’s Active Curcumin is suitable for ages 18+. The 30 days supply is available at Holland & Barretts RRP£25
