Curcumin is a fantastic anti-inflammatory – but it is such a large molecule that it is hard to absorb. Theracurmin is curcumin that has been reduced in particle size to nanoparticles (a way to make the molecules extremely small). They are emulsified with polysaccharides derived from gum ghatti and are much better absorbed than regular curcumin.
What is really exciting is that it has a half-life of 13 (+/-3) hours! This is wonderful for fighting inflammation. Theracurmin also has about 40x blood levels and 27x higher AUC (more bioavailable) than regular curcumin powder. It is the most bioavailable form of curcumin available – and stays available in the body much longer.
