Turmeric is an ancient golden spice, often popular in cooking and used as a traditional herbal medicine. It is also a rhizome and a member of the ginger family. Turmeric contains many medicinal compounds, including one called curcuminoids – curcumin is one of these curcuminoids.

Curcumin is the key active ingredient in turmeric, making up approximately 3% of the root. It gives the spice its instantly recognisable golden glow and is responsible for many of the healing properties it has been used for, for thousands of years. open_in_new

Turmeric has received a great deal of interest from scientific and medical communities over recent years, known for its natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. In its natural form, turmeric isn’t very soluble, making it difficult for the body to absorb. With the majority of turmeric supplements being made using crushed turmeric, most of the dose passes straight through the body because it isn’t water soluble.

C3 Cura™ Technology provides a solution to this problem. Our unique, innovative, and patented technology transforms the poorly soluble natural compounds in turmeric into a radically soluble, nano-sized form. This means the curcumin can be absorbed by the body’s cells, faster and more efficiently, meaning you also need a smaller dose to get the same benefits.

Curcumin is one of many curcuminoids found in turmeric. Different dietary supplements vary in levels, with a turmeric supplement containing approximately 3mg of curcuminoids per 100mg. When choosing your supplement, check to see if a product is made from turmeric or curcumin, before checking the label to see the concentration of ingredients within the supplement. Because Yellow Root Liquid Curcumin is easily absorbed, 98% of nutrients are absorbed from each dose, compared to 10-20% of other curcumin capsules.
