About Turmeric & Curcumin
Turmeric is widely used in curry dishes. In India it is know as the “spice of life”. Eastern medicine and cultural traditions have valued turmeric for its medicinal properties and warm, peppery flavor for more than 5,000 years. Curcumin is the bright yellow chemical produced in turmeric, a member of the ginger family. It is sold as an herbal supplement, used in cosmetics, food flavoring and food coloring.
Turmeric can be used as a spice in cooking and steeped in teas. Golden Milk is a soothing tea that many enjoy as part of their diet. Others prefer to use a Curcumin supplementation to gain the many benefits attributed to Curcumin.
Standard curcumin is poorly absorbed. We offer a product by Integrative Therapeutics called Theracurmin HP that is the first water-dispersible curcumin, dissolving quickly and maintaining solubility over time; resulting in a product that is 27x more bioavailable that the standard curcumin extracts.
Why Theracurmin HP?*
Turmeric is one of the most popular culinary and medicinal herbs around, and there’s good reason why. It’s been shown to support the body in digestion, purifying blood, reducing inflammation, metabolizing fat and healing wounds–to name just a few benefits.
A compound called curcumin–which gives turmeric its bright golden color–is an active component in the popular root. Studies have linked curcumin to a range of health benefits, including potential protection against Alzheimer’s, heart failure, diabetes, arthritis and premature aging. The problem is, curcumin in its natural state is not very bio-available.
Research shows that standard curcumin is poorly absorbed even at high doses. Enter Theracurmin HP. It is the first water-dispersible curcumin – dissolving quickly and maintaining solubility over time; resulting in a product that is 27x more bioavailable than standard curcumin extracts.
Besides being much more bioavailable than regular curcumin, Theracurmin HP® is also a triple-strength formula, so you can take just 2 capsules per day, gain many health benefits – and significantly cut back on the curry, if you like!
