The most well-known natural activators of the Nrf2 system, curcumin, quercetin, resveratrol and sulforaphane. Transcription factor nrf2 is a universal regulator of longevity. NRF2 is activated when exposed to cell oxidative stress and induces the expression of many groups of enzymes such glutationreductase, which relieve oxidative stress, protecting the cell from disorders caused by stress.

Activation of Nrf2 under conditions of oxidative stress leads to enhanced enzymatic system by which foreign compounds with high and non-specific chemical activity is effectively neutralized and removed from the cells, and damaged their action the molecules prepariruetsya or replaced with a new one.

Therefore, curcumin work at the cellular level, causing cells to naturally increase production of protective antioxidant enzymes such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and glutathione synthase.

They also recorded a decrease in the levels of cholesterol and fat in the liver in this group of mice. Consumption of curcumin resulted in a suppression of microvascular density in adipose tissue, resulting in the observed decrease in growth of blood vessels and consequently a reduction of body fat. The study confirmed that the increase in adipose tissue is influenced by the processes of angiogenesis and accumulation of lipids in fat cells.

The authors of the study point to similar results obtained in the study of the effects of curcumin on cell culture, which were published in the Journal of Nutrition (Journal of Nutrition) in may 2009.

Scientists are of the opinion that the reason curcumin exerts its effects on the body, despite the issues with its bioavailability, it may be that in the plasma of humans (and rodents) it contains, mainly in conjugated form, such as, for example, glucoronic that allows curcumin thus "masked" in the blood.

Scientists from Mahidol University, found that curcumin is capable of 58% to slow the growth of cancerous tumors. The highest efficiency was found for cancer of the breast, prostate, pancreas.

Scientists explain that curcumin is a powerful antioxidant, thus has the ability to destroy carcinogens.

In clinical trials in 15 patients with advanced colon cancer showed high therapeutic activity of turmeric extract, equivalent to 180 mg of curcumin taken orally.
