CurcuminRich Theracurmin unlocks the power of curcumin, the yellow pigment found in turmeric (Curcuma longa). Turmeric is a member of the ginger family and is the principal spice used in curry. In India, turmeric root has been used for thousands of years in traditional Ayurvedic medicine, and modern science confirms that curcumin exerts many health benefits.

Curcumin has demonstrated significant activity in many experimental and clinical studies, but its effects have been limited because of poor absorption – until now. Natural Factors® Theracurmin is the #1 absorbed form of curcumin and represents a major scientific breakthrough in the use of curcumin to promote health. Many of curcumin’s beneficial effects are attributed to its ability to act as an antioxidant and help support balance in certain cellular functions.

Enhancing the benefits of curcumin
What research has continually documented is that curcumin is highly pleiotropic, meaning it exerts multiple actions. Foremost is curcumin’s ability to exert significant benefits in many experimental studies in cell cultures and animals. While many preliminary studies show curcumin has great promise, a major issue limiting its use in humans has been that it is not very well absorbed.

But, CurcuminRich contains Theracurmin – a natural preparation that utilizes advanced techniques to reduce the particle size of curcumin within a vegetable gum (gum ghatti) to dramatically increase its solubility and bioavailability. Detailed absorption studies have proven that Theracurmin is the best absorbed form of curcumin on the market on a milligram-to-milligram basis compared to all other curcumin supplements. This improved absorption with Theracurmin is extremely important in getting the health benefits curcumin provides.

What are the health benefits of Theracurmin?
Because Theracurmin enhances the absorption of curcumin, all of the benefits associated with curcumin are also enhanced. Existing double-blind clinical studies on Theracurmin demonstrate benefits for liver health, periodontal health, muscle and joint health, vascular health, heart health, and global quality of life scores. The results of every study have been truly remarkable. Currently, Theracurmin is being investigated for additional properties at some of the major universities and research centres in the world.

Scientific scrutiny revealed that Theracurmin was more bioavailable on a milligram-to-milligram basis than other leading*enhanced and regular forms of curcumin.

Anti-Inflammatory and Antioxidant Support
Turmeric has withstood the test of time. Its long history of use as a culinary staple and as a traditional Ayurvedic medicine is now supported by modern science – connecting its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to curcumin, the active component.

Once absorbed, curcumin has multiple actions in the body, helping to relieve the symptoms of both acute and chronic degenerative disorders. It supports the body’s natural inflammatory response and helps fight the oxidative damage caused by free radicals to support cardiovascular health (Gupta et al., 2013). Curcumin’s therapeutic effects are largely due to chemicals called curcuminoids that block various routes of inflammation. Animal and human studies have shown that curcuminoids support joint health by reducing stiffness and swelling, as well as stimulating the collagen in connective tissue, and slowing the breakdown cartilage (Chandran et al., 2012).

Curcumin is a safe and natural remedy for inflammation and is ideal for anyone concerned about chronic degenerative diseases, such as atherosclerosis.

Theracurcumin Enhances Absorption
Although its health benefits are well documented, curcumin in its regular form is difficult for the body to absorb and quickly excreted, limiting its therapeutic potential. To overcome this, CurcuminRich is made with Theracurcumin™ – a natural preparation of minute curcumin particles suspended in a vegetable gum matrix. It mixes well with water, is absorbed into the blood faster, and stays in the blood longer than other forms of curcumin, making it more effective while remaining safe and well-tolerated.

Safe and Reliable
Theracurcumin has maintained the safe, non-toxic reliability of curcumin. It supports a healthy inflammatory response and joint mobility, and is the best absorbed form of curcumin on the market on a milligram-to-milligram basis compared to all other curcumin supplements.

CurcuminRich is available in both regular and double strength formulas with a convenient dose of 1 capsule per day.
