Sabina’s (East Windsor, NJ) Curcumin C3 Complex® and BioPerine® combination is reported to have considerable benefits in the management of knee osteoarthritis, according to a study out of the University of Medical Sciences (Mashhad, Iran).

The study titled “Curcuminoid Treatment for Knee Osteoarthritis: A Randomized Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Trial,”  was published in Phytotherapy Research. In the eight weeks, 53 subjects -pilot randomized double blind placebo controlled parallel group- suffering from mild to moderate knee osteoarthritis were administered Curcumin C3 Complex along with the natural bioavailability enhancer BioPerine (black pepper extract, piper nigrum) in three divided doses, reported Sabsina.

“We’re excited to see one of the many potentials of curcumin re-enforced, especially for consumers and marketing companies that use our patented Curcumin C3 Complex and BioPerine ingredients for this activity,” said Shaheen Majeed, marketing director, Sabsina. “Rather than using altered, oil based or other modified forms of curcumins that are out there in the marketplace, this study gives compelling evidence to simply add BioPerine for enhancing the uptake of curcumin.”

Sabinsa’s Curcumin C3 Complex has been the subject of over 25 clinical studies and 70 published researched papers, reported the company, adding the Curcumin C3 Complex® and BioPerine® combination was earlier studied in an independent clinical trial published by Tufts University validating its safety and quality of ingredients.
