More of the natural turmeric

Curcugen delivers a concentrated, highly bioavailable source of curcuminoids of natural turmeric composition, plus includes the other beneficial components of the spice that have been previously overlooked or even discarded in attempts to maximally concentrate and purify the curcuminoids alone. The Curcugen formulation retains the turmeric essential oils and turmeric polysaccharides—synergistic components that offer independent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits—and the turmeric dispersible resins that help improve the surface area of the lipophilic curcuminoids. This allows them to be more fully absorbed and actualize their bioactivity potential.
