Theracurmin® HP

Theracurmin® is a novel preparation of turmeric that utilizes patented, colloidal dispersion technology to enhance bioavailability and dramatically increase curcumin levels in the blood.*1

Unlike other forms of curcumin, Theracurmin is water-dispersible, thereby improving curcumin's overall absorption.

HOW IT WORKS

THERACURMIN® IS OVER 27 TIMES MORE BIOAVAILABLE THAN STANDARD CURCUMIN EXTRACTS

Standard curcumin is poorly absorbed even at high doses. Human clinical trials show that Theracurmin® is over 27 times more bioavailable than a standard curcumin extract and is many times more bioavailable than other commercially-available curcumin supplements.1,2 Theracurmin® has been clinically shown to support detoxification pathways, healthy cardiovascular function, muscle recovery after acute exercise and provide relief of minor pain due to occasional overuse.*1,3-5

BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF CURCUMIN

For over more than three decades, in vitro and in vivo research demonstrates that curcumin supports detoxification and cytokine pathways.*6,7 While mechanisms of action are still under investigation, the chemical structure of curcumin directly influences antioxidant pathways, with its phenolic hydroxyl group behaving as an electron donor.7 Based on in vitro and in vivo studies, curcumin's indirect effects on antioxidant pathways include modulating cellular redox homeostasis and enhancing the activity of antioxidant enzymes like catalase, superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase and glutathione-S-transferase, enzymes that also support detoxification and cytokine pathways.7

FAQs

  • A. Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a distinctive yellow spice that has been used for thousands of years in Southeast Asia, China, and India for cooking and medicinal uses.1,2 Although the traditional uses of turmeric are still used today, advances in modern medicine have revealed curcumin to be the key ingredient responsible for the activities and therapeutic properties of turmeric.*3 Curcuminoids are a family of active compounds within turmeric. Curcuminoids are polyphenolic pigments and include curcumin, demethoxycurcumin, and bisdemethoxycurcumin. Curcumin is the primary curcuminoid in turmeric and the compound for which most studies have been done. Sokmen M, Akram Khan M. The antioxidant activity of some curcuminoids and chalcones.
