Curcumin is a compound found in turmeric responsible for a variety of health benefits. A powerful antioxidant as well as a modulator of the body's inflammatory pathways, curcumin can be of great benefit to the body's immune system. Although the effects of curcumin are well documented and studied, achieving curcumin supplementation through the diet alone is nearly impossible. Turmeric contains around 3% curcumin by weight, requiring extremely high levels of turmeric to be ingested in order to benefit from the properties of curcumin. Additionally, when ingested in supplement form, curcumin is still absorbed poorly. Theracurmin utilizes a patented process that increases the bioavailability of curcumin 27 fold.
