How do its active ingredients work?
Its anti-inﬂammatory properties appears to be mediated through the inhibition of induction of important enzymes that mediate inﬂammatory processes like COX-2, LOX, and iNOS production of cytokines such as interferon-gamma and tumor necrosis factor, and activation of transcription factors like NF-κB and AP-1. In addition, it has antioxidant and anticancer properties, strengthens the immune system, helps the liver to filter toxins from the organism and slows down the aging process.
It increases curcumin bioavailability (by 20-fold), due to piperine’s inhibition of hepatic glucuronidation and intestinal metabolism of curcumin.
They possess antioxidant (they protect the body from the damage that free radicals can cause), anticancer, and immunostimulant properties. In addition, they are precursors of vitamin A.
Medium chain fatty acids
Coconut pulp contains around 65% of medium-chain fatty acids. These, in addition to being highly digestible and favoring curcumin absorption, possess anti-inflammatory properties, balance intestinal microbiota, strengthen the immune system, protect the brain and cognitive function (since they are capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier and provide energy to the brain), and have anticancer properties (they decrease replication and favor apoptosis of carcinogenic cells).
