AlphaCurcumin Plus reformulated with Phytosomal Curcumin Complex

1st August 2017

Our popular AlphaCurcumin Plus has now been reformulated with Phytosomal Curcumin Complex, which is superior to even liposomal curcumin. This new formulation ensures that AlphaCurcumin remains the top curcumin complex supplement.

The big problem with the beneficial compounds in curcumin is that they have very poor oral absorption. As a consequence, impractically large amounts are needed to derive the full benefits of curcumin. A solution to this problem has been found by finely mixing the curcumin with lipids, as curcumin is fat-soluble rather than water soluble, and this vastly increases absorption by basically having the lipids carry the curcumin into the body.

By finely mixing the curcumin either with curcuminoid oils or with a phospholipid medium to produce curcumin liposomes, the curcumin is surrounded by fats. This increases the absorption substantially, but the resulting mixture is not ideally stable and requires a large ratio of oil molecules to curcumin molecules to make it effective.

A newly developed superior method to this lipid approach is to use a proprietary process to directly bond the curcumin molecules with phospholipid molecules in a 1:1 or 1:2 ratio. This produces a stable curcumin-phospholipid complex called a curcumin phytosome complex (curcumin-phosphatidylcholine complex), which is more effective and efficient than curcumin liposome complexes. The curcumin processed in this way has an absorption rate many times greater than that of ordinary curcumin complexes found in most food supplements, and this unleashes the full healing power of curcumin complex.

AlphaCurcumin now contains 250mg of this phytosomal curcumin, as well as other ingredients that can help in the healing process such as Bromelin and Quercetin.
