CuraMed® (750 mg)

How it Works:

While the health benefits of curcumin, the active compound from the Indian spice known as turmeric, have been well-documented, it is also well-known that curcumin is not well-absorbed when taken orally (by mouth). Different methods have been used to increase absorption, including combining curcumin with lecithin or piperine (black pepper). The best absorption has been achieved when the extract is ground into a very small particle size and combined with turmeric oils and phospholipids. This combination is up to 10 times better absorbed than standard curcumin.

Curcumin

Curcumin, a compound found in the spice turmeric, supports multiple pathways in the body and is a potent antioxidant. Some of the benefits associated with curcumin include immune system modulation and protection from oxidative stress.* The specialized extract in this formula has the highest absorption of any curcumin extract available for maximum health benefits.1-12

CuraMed® (750 mg)

Q: Why the two milligram levels – 375 mg and 750 mg of CuraMed®?

Simply because everyone has different nutrient needs. For some, 375 mg softgels provide the perfect amount of healthy support. Due to the enhanced absorption of BCM-95® Curcumin, one 375 mg softgel is equivalent to 2,500 mg of curcumin 95%, the standard extract.

For others who require more intensive support, the 750 mg is the best choice. Here again, the superior absorption of BCM-95® Curcumin means that one softgel is equivalent to 5,000 mg of curcumin 95%.*

Q: How is CuraMed® different than Curamin®? Can we take them both together?

CuraMed® provides high-absorption BCM-95® Curcumin only, so it is a single-ingredient product. Curamin® provides BCM-95® Curcumin along with BosPure® Boswellia, DL–phenylalanine (DLPA), and nattokinase as a combination for occasional pain due to exercise or overuse.* It is perfectly fine to use them together according to your individual preferences.

Q: How does the BCM-95® Curcumin in CuraMed® compare to other curcumin and turmeric products?

The proper product comparison is curcumin to curcumin. However, since many companies are comparing their curcumin absorption to turmeric, we provide this information as a service to our customers.

    •  Plain curcumin 95% compared to turmeric delivers up to 50
        times the curcumin as the same amount of turmeric.
    •  BCM-95® Curcumin has been proven to deliver up to 10 times more curcumin into the bloodstream as the same amount of plain curcumin.
    •  Therefore, when compared gram per gram, BCM-95® Curcumin delivers up to 10 times more curcumin than plain curcumin 95% and up to 500 times more curcumin than that found in an equal amount of turmeric.

CuraMed® (750 mg)

Sometimes called the Indian Solid Gold for its beautiful golden color, the spice turmeric (which contains the beneficial compound, curcumin) has been valued as a food and a medicine for thousands of years. Turmeric is primarily grown in the southern areas of India. Although not a certified organic crop, the farming practices are traditional – animal manure is used as a fertilizer, the roots are dug by hand, the burned plant leaves are turned back into the soil for extra nutrients, and no synthetic chemicals or pesticides are used. After the roots are harvested, they are cleaned in water, cured and dried. After drying, the root is ground for use as a spice, or the curcumin is extracted to be used for its health benefits.
