Ingredient Summary: BioCeuticals Theracurmin Triple
Studies have shown that regular curcumin has very poor bioavailability, due to its poor water solubility, degradation in the gastrointestinal tract at neutral and alkaline pH, rapid metabolism to sulfate and glucuronide conjugates, and rapid systemic elimination.[1,3,4] This makes it difficult to reach sufficient systemic levels to achieve significant clinical results. Theracurmin is an advanced curcumin product featuring a patented manufacturing technique that increases the bioavailability of curcumin. This preparation reduces the particle size of curcumin and suspends it in a unique matrix, dramatically increasing its solubility and absorption.
Clinical research has shown that Theracurmin has at least 27 times higher bioavailability than regular curcumin powder, and has enhanced gastrointestinal absorption as a result of colloidal dispersion.[1,3] It reaches peak plasma levels within one hour of ingestion and continues to be detected at significantly high concentrations in plasma at 24 hours post a single dose. The plasma concentrations of curcumin are shown to be significantly higher at the Theracurmin (30mg of curcumin) dose level than at the regular curcumin powder 30mg dose. Theracurmin features a reduced particle size of curcumin suspended in a natural matrix, dramatically increasing its solubility and absorption. Dispersed with minuscule colloidal particles, Theracurmin is highly soluble in water, and therefore highly bioavailable. It remains stably dispersed even after 28 days, whereas research shows curcumin powder begins to precipitate after one hour.
One of the mechanisms of curcumin may be associated with the inhibition of nuclear factor-kappa beta (NF-kB), which is pivotal in the regulation of inflammation.[3,5] Curcumin may also be a dual inhibitor of the arachidonic acid cascade, downregulating cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), lipoxygenase (LOX), arachidonic acid and interleukin activity; an inhibitor of inflammatory cytokine production, including tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), interleukin (IL) -1, -2, -6, -8, and -12;6,7 and help lower circulating levels of C-reactive protein (CRP).
Both turmeric and curcumin have potent antioxidant properties. Curcumin exerts its antioxidant effects via multiple mechanisms such as scavenging of free radicals including reactive oxygen (ROS) and nitrogen species (RNS), regulates specific enzymes that neutralise free radicals and also has the ability to stop ROS-generating enzymes like cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase. Additionally, there is a direct link between oxidative stress and inflammation, where both oxidative stress and inflammation can stimulate each other.
