Immune health, inflammatory response, and aging
Finding a way to balance immune support and healthy inflammation response are essential for maintaining optimal health in normal aging. 1-3 That's where a unique oil derived from the seeds of the black cumin plant come into play. Black cumin seed oil has been clinically shown to be uniquely effective at balancing both immune support and inflammation response because of a wide range of active compounds that benefit human health. 4-15
Supports a healthy inflammatory response
A healthy response to inflammatory factors is a crucial part of preserving robust health. In a wide-ranging series of studies, black cumin seed oil has been shown to support the effectiveness of many biological factors that contribute to the body’s normal inflammatory activity, including those critical cell-signaling chemicals and hormone-like messengers. 16-18
Boosts the immune system
Studies also show that black cumin seed oil supports immune health by facilitating optimal function of a healthy, aging immune system. It does this by supporting the vital defensive activities of macrophages and helper T-cells that work together to bolster your immune defenses. 19-24
The added benefits of curcumin
The addition of curcumin to this unique formula provides another layer of support. One of the oldest medicinal herbs, curcumin has been used for thousands of years to benefit virtually every organ system — supporting brain, breast, pancreas, and even colon health. Curcumin also promotes healthy inflammatory response as well as healthy cell division.
Two powerful nutrients in one supplement
Life Extension has combined these two extracts into one novel formulation that delivers all of their complementary benefits in one convenient softgel. By acting on both immune factors and inflammatory factors, our Black Cumin Seed Oil with Bio-Curcumin® supports a healthy immune system and facilitates a healthy inflammatory response.

Life Extension's Vision
Our goal at Life Extension is to increase the quality and longevity of human life with science-based, “cutting edge” formulations. The unique ingredients included in Life Extension products are sometimes five to ten years ahead of the products sold by commercial vitamin companies.
Every week, Life Extension's in-house research staff analyzes thousands of scientific studies, reviews dozens of the world's leading peer-reviewed scientific, health, and medical journals, and interacts with leading anti-aging researchers to uncover the very latest breakthroughs as they relate to nutritional supplementation. This information is then passed on to their product development team which develops scientifically innovative, health-promoting formulations.
For over 25 years, Life Extension has developed nutritional supplements with the highest degree of quality, potency, and purity. Unlike discount supplement providers, Life Extension differentiates itself through quality, not price. Many discount products, for example, use low grade vitamin C imported from China that contains traces of arsenic, lead, and iron. Since the FDA does not believe anyone should take more than 100mg a day of vitamin C, the FDA permits the importation of this contaminated vitamin C. Many Life Extensionists take over 3,000 mg of vitamin C a day, so it is crucial that they use top-quality vitamin C that has gone through 18 purification steps to remove contaminants.
Life Extension’s complete line of nutritional supplements includes vitamins, minerals, amino acids, phyto-nutrients and standardized herbal concentrates.
Life Extension's Commitment to Scientific Research
Commercial companies have made huge profits on products such as coenzyme Q10, melatonin and DHEA, each of which was introduced to the U.S. market by Life Extension at considerable risk. Life Extension performed the research on these products, determined their validity and viability, and subsequently brought them to market based upon the strength of evidence behind them.
In the past seven years, Life Extension has funded over $21 million in research through their affiliations with such esteemed institutions as U.C. Berkeley and Mt. Sinai Medical Center. In 2004, Life Extension's scientists were awarded a $900,000 grant to continue their pioneering work, and they collaborated with BioMarker Pharmaceuticals and scientists at the National Cancer Institute to develop new anti-aging and anti-cancer therapies. This resulted in a recently accepted publication in the prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
In addition, Life Extension has funded life span studies at the Universities of Wisconsin, California at Riverside, and Arkansas, gene transfer studies at the Gerontology Research Center in Baltimore, neurotransmitter studies to find the key to brain aging at the University of California at Berekely, and resveratrol studies BioMarker Pharmaceuticals in collaboration with Harvard Medical School and Critical Care Research.
