Swanson – Theracurmin
For hundreds of years, India’s Ayurvedic herbalists have treasured turmeric (Curcuma longa) for its health-affirming properties, and modern science has validated many of the herb’s traditional uses. Turmeric contains unique phytochemicals known as curcuminoids, of which curcumin is the most studied. Curcumin has been shown to exert powerful antioxidant effects and to boost the activity of the body’s endogenous antioxidant enzymes, protecting organs and tissues throughout the body, from the brain and central nervous system to the cardiovascular system to the joint tissues that make comfortable movement possible.
Despite its tremendous potential, curcumin’s usefulness has always been limited by its poor bioavailability. Due to its low water solubility and limited ability to withstand the acidic environment of the stomach, curcumin is typically poorly absorbed, rapidly metabolized and quickly excreted by the human body. Once in the plasma, however, it is actually quite stable and even able to reach hard-to-access tissues like those of the brain and central nervous system. The challenge has been to find a way to get curcumin into the bloodstream before it breaks down. That’s where High Absorption Theracurmin comes in.
Theracurmin is a proprietary turmeric preparation featuring finely milled turmeric in a colloidal suspension with glycerin and gum ghatti, a complex polysaccharide derived from the sap of the ghatti tree. The emulsifying properties of gum ghatti give Theracurmin excellent stability and solubility, dramatically enhancing bioavailability to increase curcumin levels in the blood. Human trial show that Theracurmin is over 27 times more bioavailable than standard curcumin, finally giving us the opportunity to take full advantage of turmeric’s protective potential.
Whether you take turmeric for your liver, brain, heart, joints or all of the above, you should consider making the switch to High Absorption Theracurmin. With its unprecedented bioavailability, it gives you more of what you take turmeric for.
