As a representative of Ayurvedic herbs, the market heat of curcumin has been growing in the past few years, because the overall increase has slowed down due to the impact of the epidemic.
In the whole consumer market, people's demand for products with high bioavailability continues to grow. At present, the absorption of raw materials in human body is regarded as the "success or failure" in ingredient formulation, because it plays a vital role in determining dose effectiveness and quality. Over the years, the bioavailability of curcumin has always been the focus of the industry, although many enterprises have been solving it through technical aspects, such as microencapsulation technology, phospholipid composite embedding, raw material compounding, etc.
Recently, sabinsha's patented product curcumin C3 reduce was approved by the European Food Safety Administration (EFSA) for new resource food, officially opening a new starting point for the raw material in the whole EU market.
It is understood that in the past, curcumin was used as a food additive or pharmaceutical ingredient in the form of "more than 90% curcumin or aluminum lake" in the EU. The approval of sabinsha's patented product curcumin C3 reduce has broadened its application in the field of food.
Curcumin C3 reduce is a colorless hydrogenated derivative of curcumin, which contains curcumin like metabolite tetrahydro curcumin (THCs). According to the evaluation data released by EFSA, the product is safe for the target population of 140 mg per day. Sold as a raw material of food supplement, the maximum dose for adults is 300 mg per day, excluding pregnant and lactating women.
As an antioxidant, tetrahydro curcumin can provide many health benefits, one of which is related to colon health. At the same time, resident bacteria in the intestine also metabolize curcumin to tetrahydrocurcumin, which explains many of the benefits of curcumin.
Curcumin is the main active compound in the root of plant turmeric, and it is also one of the popular raw materials in the nutrition and health industry. According to market data 1 released by grand view research, the global curcumin market will reach US $94.3 million in 2022. This is consistent with the latest report of global market insights. 2 the data in the report predicts that the global curcumin market will exceed US $145 million by 2027.
Turmeric has been used as medicine and food for centuries. It has a long history in ancient India and China. Modern scientific research data are constantly promoting this raw material to a broader stage.
At present, as of February 2022, there are 18670 research papers related to curcumin on PubMed, most of which focus on anti-inflammatory and antioxidant aspects. Among them, 2021 is the year with the most research data at present, and the R & D investment in curcumin is still growing.
1. Daily chemical direction
As a functional ingredient, curcumin is becoming more and more popular in personal care and cosmetics industry because of its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and other properties. It is increasingly used in a variety of skin care products, such as bites, skin management and swelling. Driven by this, the sales of curcumin is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.3% in the forecast period from 2021 to 2031.
In addition, more and more consumers tend to use clean label cosmetics and skin care products, which encourages industry participants to use natural and plant ingredients such as curcumin, which in turn drives sales in the cosmetics field.
2. Sports nutrition direction
More and more studies have confirmed that curcumin has application potential in sports performance and recovery after sports. At the same time, the category of joint health is closely related to sports nutrition. At present, the raw materials in the joint health market are more traditional, such as ammonia sugar, chondroitin sulfate and dimethyl sulfone. The new raw materials represented by curcumin are constantly rewriting the new market and application pattern of the joint health market.
Through continuous in-depth research on turmeric, Zhongda Hengyuan has independently developed purcumin curcumin, and its absorption rate has reached 18.46 times that of general curcumin. CUHK is committed to the basic research of pulsumin and has made in-depth research and development on the effect of curcumin on inflammation and antioxidation; At the same time, further research found that it and ammonia sugar have more potential in the application of bone health. In the future, more energy will be put on the product research and development of bone health and sports nutrition, and enter the experimental process of nutritional intervention.
3. Pressure sleep direction
One of the more subdivided areas of curcumin is its effects on stress / anxiety and sleep, which is mainly related to serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that can stabilize people's mood and happiness. This neurotransmitter also helps sleep, eat and digest. In a 30 day double-blind crossover trial, the effect of curcumin (1 g / day) or placebo on the frequency of anxiety and depression symptoms in 30 obese human subjects 4. The severity of anxiety and depression was assessed at baseline and at weeks 4, 6 and 10 of the trial using the baker anxiety scale and the baker depression scale, both of which were scientifically validated. The results showed that the anxiety score of curcumin group decreased (P = 0.03).
Although in 2021, the global epidemic made consumers pay more attention to immune raw materials such as Echinacea, microbial D and elderberry, turmeric and curcumin are still one of the best-selling botanical drugs in the mass market and natural health food channels in the United States. Thanks to the health benefits continuously verified by scientific research, the health properties of curcumin will continue to receive attention.
