Curcugen™ is a clean, highly concentrated, clinically-studied curcumin ingredient, fully derived from a turmeric base with a high, 50% curcuminoid concentration.
It is derived from turmeric oleoresin as base ingredient with a more comprehensive profile of turmeric bioactives than the industry- standard starting material, 95% curcuminoids.
The oleoresin is the native matrix where turmeric’s curcuminoids, essential oils and resins are found, which support its unique characteristics as a food and health ingredient.
The Curcugen™ oleoresin is optimized by the patent-pending SELFD™ platform technology. In this unique format, the natural ratio of curcuminoids is maintained, its beneficial essential oils are retained, and otherwise discarded resins are made functional. The functional resins in Curcugen™ add significant value to the ingredient, enhancing the bioavailability and dispersion properties.
This unique technology enhances free curcumin’s bioavailability 39 fold, delivers a self-dispersion profile for easy and versatile delivery options, and provides a sustained release mechanism for efficient dosing.
