Issues with regular Turmeric?
The Turmeric market is full with products that are poorly absorbed in the body, which diminishes Turmerics efficacy. When the body ingests Turmeric, it gets rapidly metabolised by the liver and is virtually non existent in the blood. This is why you will see most Turmeric brands combined with black pepper extract (piperine). The issue with most lipid carrier based forms of Curcumin is that they are mainly made up of the carrier, often containing just 20% of the actual Curcuminoids. For example, a 500 mg dosage of the popular Longvida® Curcumin extract delivers just 115 mg of Curcuminoids, at 23% Curcuminoid content.
Why we use Hydrocurc® in our Thrive Complex?
Hydrocurc® transforms Turmeric from placebo into effective. Hydrocurc’s® carrier, Lipisperse™ only accounts for 15% of the ingredient structure, delivering four times more Curcuminoids than other brands of Curcumin. This revolutionary technology is able to increase the surface area of lipophilic particles in aqueous solution, which makes it perfect for enhancing the bioavailability of Curcumin. HydroCurc is so bioavailable that you only need a comparably small dose in order to deliver the same amount of Curcuminoids.
Bioavailability of Hydrocurc®
While standard Curcumin is insoluble in water, HydroCurc® is dispersed in water resulting in significant bioavailability, delivering Curcuminoids to the body at a faster rate than standard Curcumin extracts.
