Institute of Chemistry – Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology is the first unit of Vietnam to successfully extract Nano Curcumin from yellow turmeric plant to treat stomach ulcers. The therapeutic effect of Curcumin is almost 40 times more than that of Curcumin extracted in the conventional way.
According to GS. Dr. Dao Van Phan, former Head of the Department of Pharmacology (Hanoi Medical University), turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a precious medicinal plant that is appreciated among countless traditional medicinal plants.
The main active ingredient that causes the yellow color and effect of turmeric is Curcumin. Many experimental and clinical studies have proven that Curcumin has many valuable biological activities such as anti-gastric ulcer, anti-cancer, liver and kidney protection…
However, to cure the disease, the patient must continuously take up to 12-20g of Curcumin, which is equivalent to 24 to 40 500mg Curcumin tablets or four to six ounces of turmeric powder (because turmeric has only 3% curcumin). This is a very high dose, which the patient cannot comply with due to the unpleasant taste and gastrointestinal irritation.
Moreover, the main limitation that limits the application of Curcumin in the treatment of stomach pain, gastric ulcer and other chronic diseases is its very low solubility and absorption.
GS. Dr. Dao Van Phan said: “Although curcumin is taken at a high dose, its concentration in the blood and place of action is still low. Because curcumin is insoluble in water, easily destroyed in the intestine, easily metabolized and eliminated in the liver, it is only absorbed into the blood by 2 to 5%.
Therefore, in order to achieve a blood concentration sufficient to be effective, patients must use high doses of Curcumin or use high-tech dosage forms to increase absorption into the blood.
In order to maximize the absorption of Curcumin , there are many methods such as adding piperine auxiliaries, chelating curcumin with metals, liposomal curcumin, and especially nanochemistry.”
And to overcome this limitation, recently, Institute of Chemistry – Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology is the first unit of Vietnam to successfully extract Nano Curcumin from yellow turmeric plant. Nano Curcumin has a nanoparticle size of 50-70 nm, a water solubility of 10%, with the same quality standard as the US Nano Curcumin preparation.
Professor Phan explained: “Nanotechnology helps to create Nano Curcumin particles with microscopic size, equal to 1/80,000 of a human hair, which penetrates well into cells and the absorption can be up to 90-95%.
Nano Curcumin maximizes strong anti-inflammatory effects, heals ulcers, inhibits the growth of Hylicobacter Pylori bacteria, increases mucin secretion to regenerate and protect gastric mucosa, destroys free radicals, Helps prevent progression to stomach cancer.
Not only curing gastritis, Nano Curcumin destroys cancer cells, limiting complications that progress to cancer in patients with chronic peptic ulcer disease.
According to research at Vietnam National University, Hanoi, Nano Curcumin has the ability to penetrate into cancer cells and inhibit gastric cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer and colon cancer cells right in the skin. low concentration.
Nano Curcumin could be a new solution to treat chronic stomach ulcers with herbs instead of western medicine.

* Some outstanding properties of the active ingredient Nano Curcumin in yellow turmeric starch:
– Nano Curcumin is the most powerful cancer-killing agent by the mechanism of step-by-step destruction of malignant cells, while benign cells are not affected. Curcumin has been considered by world scientists to be the most representative substance for a new generation of anti-cancer agents that are both very effective and safe, without causing side effects.
– Nano Curcumin has a strong ability to eliminate free radicals and carcinogenic enzymes found in food and drink we use every day, so Curcumin both helps prevent and fight cancer in a positive way.
