What is Turmeric?

Turmeric, the vibrant orange powder that comes from the root of the perennial Curcuma longa plant, has been used for centuries throughout Asia. It has a particular affinity for the blood, and is thereby able to circulate its powerful health benefits throughout the body. Turmeric has been used as an Ayurvedic remedy for 4,000 years. Its key antioxidant, Curcumin, boasts an array of researched-backed and time-tested benefits. It is revered as the holy powder for its proven medicinal properties. Curcumin has been shown to be beneficial at reducing inflammation, improving digestion and strengthening the overall energy in the body.

What is Hydrocurc®?

Hydrocurc® is the world's first cold water dispersible Turmeric extract, which has been specifically designed to increase the bioavailability of Curcuminoids in aqueous environments, such as the stomach. With over 85% Curcuminoids HydroCurc® is clinically shown to have the highest levels of bioavailability of Turmeric on the market. Hydrocurc® utilises the award-winning LipiSperse® technology, which is a patented delivery system that allows the Turmeric to disperse in water for maximum absorption in the body.

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.

Below are the comparisons based on a randomised, double-blinded pharmacokinetic study.

Here’s Why People Trust Us To Care For Their Body & Mind

We Create Unique Complexes

We’ve explored all corners of the Earth to find nature’s most potent herbs, plants and fruits for human wellbeing. Individually, these ingredients have been used for centuries. Together, they can truly transform modern wellness. Our complexes use cutting edge science to synergise these ingredients in ways that maximise absorption, giving you the most powerful results. 

We’re Backed By Science

Created by nature, proven by science. Each one of our Pillar ingredients is clinically peer-patented, using cutting edge methods and backed by extensive scientific literature. And because each one harnesses the highest bioavailability of each plant or herb, it’s hardly surprising that all three of our Pillar ingredients have won awards within the health and wellness space. 

We Honour Nature

Our ethos is rooted in a deep respect for mother nature. After all, Earth has given us the gifts we need to nurture our bodies and mind for thousands of years; we simply need to reconnect to this truth. That’s why we use the purest plants, herbs and fruits in our complexes and include zero fillers, anti-caking agents, binders or preservatives. So you just get the good stuff, exactly as nature intended.
