Lamberts® Curcumin Ultra contains a technically advanced turmeric extract that has been specially prepared to greatly increase its absorption from the digestive system.
One established problem with curcumin is that it does not easily dissolve in water and it is this feature of the compound that is believed to significantly limit the amount that can be absorbed from our digestive systems. For this reason a number of turmeric extracts with 'enhanced absorption' have been developed and this product contains one of these called CurcuWIN®.
CurcuWIN® is manufactured utilising proprietary UltraSOL„¢ technology. This is a molecular dispersion process that enhances the bioavailability of poorly absorbed nutrients and increases water dispersibility of fat soluble ingredients such as curcumin.
Importantly, another benefit of CurcuWIN® is that it provides the curcuminoids in the same profile as they are naturally found in turmeric. In your practice, Curcumin Ultra can be used in any situation that you are currently recommending turmeric for, with the huge advantage of being significantly better absorbed. It can be taken on a long term basis as the nutrients provided by the formula are at safe levels.
We are delighted to introduce Rosehip to the Lamberts® range, which has been prized by herbalists for centuries. Our product is one of the UK's strongest with 500mg of standardised rosehip extract per tablet, from 10,000mg of dried rosehips, which is a level that is consistent with published studies of note. We achieve this by careful sourcing of the finest grade raw material.
Rosehips are a naturally rich source of vitamin C, which contributes to normal collagen formation and the normal function of cartilage, gums, skin and blood vessels, as well as the normal function of the immune system.
The key active constituent in turmeric is curcumin, which is found within the root of the plant, and it is this part which is responsible for its bright yellow colour.
Studies have already shown how the curcumin in turmeric can inhibit the compounds involved in the inflammatory response. Consequently, practitioners often combine turmeric with glucosamine sulphate to combat problems such as joint stiffness. Also turmeric is increasingly being added to formulations for back problems. However, almost all of these formulas provide only token levels of this spice.
Positive results have also been shown by researchers in a recent trial using to help ease some symptoms of irritable bowel. In a relatively short time, some long-standing sufferers saw positive effects on the problems that had plagued them for more than 10 years.
Lamberts® Turmeric extract is a high potency root extract standardised to provide 95% curcumins, which is the level generally used in studies. Each tablet contains 500mg turmeric root extract, which is equivalent to 20,000mg of turmeric spice and is equivalent to four heaped teaspoons worth of spice. Many other turmeric supplements provide just 400mg of culinary spice per tablet, which highlights just how much stronger Lamberts® Turmeric 20,000mg really is.
Daily intake: 1 tablet
Turmeric has a long history of traditional medicinal use, and the large number of conditions it can address make it a true core essential nutrient for practitioners. Each tablet contains 200mg of turmeric root extract, equivalent to a full 10,000mg of turmeric spice (or two heaped teaspoons). It is standardised to provide 95% curcuminoids, which is the level generally used in studies. Furthermore, our Turmeric tablets are fast release, disintegrating between 15 and 30 minutes for speedy absorption. Plus, these one-a-day tablets are suitable for both vegetarians and vegans.
We are delighted to introduce Eyewise® Omega 3 to the Lamberts® range. This unique high potency, one-a-day formula is a synergistic combination of lutein, zeaxanthin and omega-3 fatty acids from pure fish oil, plus natural vitamin D3.As with our hugely successful original Eyewise® product which is still available, we have included a full 20mg of pure 'free-form' lutein that is ready to be absorbed, as well as zeaxanthin.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids that are not made in the body, and so they must be obtained from the diet, most notably from green leafy vegetables. In plants, lutein is produced to help protect the cell contents from damage by sunlight. Our bodies can use lutein in the same way as it is deposited in the macula where it filters out the harmful wavelengths in sunlight that can damage the delicate light receptor cells of the macula. Like all carotenoids, lutein is an antioxidant, and it is therefore believed to play a role in protecting the macula tissue from the damage caused by harmful free radicals. Numerous studies indicate that omega-3 fatty acids, may also be especially important in preserving and maintaining healthy eyes, especially as we age. We have included a full 356mg of omega 3s per capsule, including 250mg of DHA which contributes to the maintenance of normal vision.
Moreover, the pure fish oil we use is certified from sustainable fisheries.It's becoming common knowledge that vitamin D is important for far more than bone health. Indeed, there is now emerging evidence from studies that links vitamin D with eye health. Eyewise® Omega 3 provides natural vitamin D3 at 100% of the Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) for adults.
Artichoke's use as a herb was first documented in the 4th century BC. The herb belongs to the plant family Asteraceae, which includes milk thistle. Also known as globe artichoke, the plant produces large purple and green flower heads and is distinct from Jerusalem Artichoke, the edible root vegetable.
Traditionally, artichoke has been used to help ease the discomfort in the upper abdomen or lower chest experienced by some people after eating. Modern research has led to practitioners extending its use to patients experiencing disrupted bowel health, and for those with impaired fat digestion.
It is the leaves of the artichoke plant that contain the active compounds, the most important one being cynarin. Lamberts® Artichoke is a high potency artichoke extract standardised upon 5% cynarin, to give a relevant level of 16mg cynarin per tablet.
This versatile root has an incredible range of applications that have proved useful to mankind. Ginger is known to be a carminative, which means that it can help release excessive gases from the digestive system. Some practitioners have found that ginger is useful for other gastrointestinal complaints, such as the discomfort in the upper abdomen experienced by some people after eating.
More recently Ginger has been used as an aid to headache sufferers (Please note; undiagnosed headaches should always be investigated by a GP). Ginger is also growing in popularity with practitioners for use in programmes designed to help maintain healthy joints.
At Lamberts®, we use a standardised extract that has the active ingredients of ginger concentrated down to a dark rich paste that is dissolved into sunflower oil and supplied in capsules. Using this method ensures that the active constituents such as the gingeroles and zingerone are preserved. It takes over 14 grams of fresh ginger root to produce 120mg of ginger extract, the amount found in just one of our capsules! Each capsule provides 24mg of gingerols, which are volatile compounds that are easily lost if ginger is cooked, dried or crystallised. Very few supplements provide this level of gingerols, and in fact many do not even declare a level on the label.
