NATURAL FACTORS - Theracurmin - 60 Veggie Capsule(s) - NPN: 80027669 -- Theracurmin represents a major scientific breakthrough in curcumin pharmacology, with both animal and human studies showing no side effects and significantly better results than other curcumin preparations. The first step in manufacturing Theracurmin is solubilizing it within a vegetable gum known as gum ghatti. The next step is grinding the curcumin mixture using a wet-grinding mill to produce microscopic particles that are 100 times smaller than regular curcumin powder. A homogenizer then disperses these particles to create a colloidal suspension that readily mixes with water. The combination of reduced particle size and improved solubility ensures that a therapeutically effective level of curcumin is absorbed into the bloodstream, where it lasts for hours.
