Developing Curcumin supplements for the “Silver Generation”

author:Naturalindate:2015-09-24 16:10Click: times

Worldwide, the 65+ generation is proving more able and willing than ever to proactively turn to nutrition to help delay the onset of age-related decline in form and function.Aging is inevitable; The perception of aging from being seen as a challenge to revived individuality opens the door to processors of nutritional support products that foster self-care and enhanced functioning.

The senior demographic tends to eat smaller portions and less often than younger people. They value nutritious products that are in small portions, are convenient and taste good. Recent advances in processing and delivery technologies have elevated the potency and efficacy of a prodigious number of beneficial ingredients to support practically every aspect of age-related decline or health vulnerability for this demographic.


Curcumin in turmeric (Curcuma longa), a relative of ginger, is considered especially powerful for eye health. Curcumin catalyzes the production of heat-shock proteins (HSPs) which play an important role in ensuring proper cell function and overall retina function. Glaucoma or ocular hypertension is caused by faulty antioxidant defense systems.Curcumin inhibits the production of COX-2 enzyme that builds up in the eye’s aqueous layer and uses osmotic effect to lower intraocular pressure.

Lutein and zeaxanthin play another vital role in vision, too, protecting the eyes from the in-side. These powerful antioxidants are deposited as a protective layer in the macula, a small spot in the back of the eye responsible for central vision. They work like internal sunglasses to protect the eyes from damaging light from the sun and even computer screens. Lutein and zeaxanthin are essential daily nutrients, because the body does not make them.

For the 65+ age group, supplements containing curcumin are extremely important, not only for the previously describe benefits but for cognitive support and a wide range of inflammatory conditions that are inevitable with aging. Curcumin has become one of the more heavily studied botanical compounds recently, especially for its cerebroprotective benefits. More than 3,500 reports of experimental research and clinical trials show curcuminoids in turmeric are powerful antioxidants for a number of inflammatory conditions.

Such “green chemoprevention” with simple plant powders and extracts such as powder to prevent disease is not only less expensive but also is easily incorporated into one’s routine, no matter what the diet. For processors, premixes of
these powders can also be the base for fast and effective nutrition in formulations that let seniors attain their daily allowance of fruits and vegetables without difficulties or change in routine.
