Curcuma Phytosome* (Curcuma longa extract (root) ...11.3 mg.
Curcuma longa, also called Tumeric, has been used traditionally as a hepatoprotectant and cholegogue in both Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. Its beneficial effects may be due to the fact that the constituent, curcumin, is a potent antioxidant and it helps maintain a normal anti-inflammatory response.
Pyridoxal 5'phosphate (Vitamin B6) ....1.3 mg.
Pyridoxal 5'phosphate acts as a cofactor for enzymes, catalyzes reactions with amino acids, and aids in the synthesis of nonessential amino acids.
