Natural Factors - Double Strength Theracurmin 60 mg. - 60 Vegetarian Capsules
Natural Factors Double Strength Theracurmin supports the body’s natural inflammatory response as well as joint and heart health. Curcumin is the yellow pigment of turmeric valued for its many health benefits. With curcumin, it’s not how much you take, it’s how much you absorb. Theracurmin is an enhanced form that increases absorption over 30 times compared to regular curcumin. Natural Factors Double Strength Theracurmin contains no artificial colors, preservatives or sweeteners; no dairy, gluten, wheat or yeast.
What are the Benefits of Theracurmin?
What research has continually documented is that curcumin is highly pleiotropic, meaning it exerts multiple actions. Foremost is curcumin's ability to influence many factors involved when normal inflammatory processes get out of balance. It has also demonstrated significant effects in preventing the accumulation of compounds associated with premature aging. For example, beta-amyloid is a compound linked to aging in the brain. It is kind of like a biochemical scar in brain tissue that reflects damage due to inflammation. Curcumin is showing great promise in preserving brain health by preventing the accumulation of beta-amyloid. However, in order for this benefit to be realized, it must be absorbed. Here are some of the other benefits shown with curcumin:
How much Theracurmin do I need?
The suggested usage of Theracurmin based upon clinical evaluation is 150 to 300 mg per day. Although this amount is significantly lower than many other forms of curcumin, keep in mind that the amount of curcumin you take is not as important as how much you absorb.
