Because curcumin has poor solubility and absorption, large doses of standard curcumin powder are typically needed for health benefits. Several companies have introduced enhanced forms of curcumin to address the issue of bioavailability. However, the study strengths vary based on a number of factors including study design, population, fed state, and number and variety of outcome measures. These variabilities and only testing a single enhanced ingredient against a standard curcumin powder make it difficult to directly compare one form against another.
In a well-controlled human clinical trial—the ﬁrst curcumin study of its kind—comparing commercial curcumin products, CurcuWIN increased relative absorption of total curcuminoids 46-times over standard curcumin and was signiﬁcantly more bioavailable than other enhanced forms. Produced using OmniActive’s proprietary UltraSOL Nutrient Delivery System, CurcuWIN contains a minimum 20% curcuminoids in the same profile as found naturally in turmeric.
Curcuminoids—the active compounds in turmeric—have been extensively researched and support multiple health benefits such as heart health, joint health, cognitive function and antioxidant protection. The significant interest in and proven benefits of curcuminoids has fuelled consumer demand for high-quality formulas. As more curcumin products enter the market it becomes increasingly important to differentiate your brand. CurcuWIN is a unique, highly bioavailable form of curcumin, proven to be better absorbed than other enhanced forms of curcumin.
UltraSOL delivery system is a unique approach to increasing the solubility of poorly absorbed nutrients like curcuminoids:
