Curaphen contains a uniquely bioavailable form of curcumin called BCM-95®. Curcumin is a compound from turmeric‚ used traditionally as a spice‚ food ingredient‚ and as a botanical in Ayurvedic medicine. Benefits associated with curcumin include: immune system modulation‚ protection from oxidative stress‚ and support for the body's natural inflammatory response. However‚ although curcumin has shown great promise for these many benefits‚ it is not easily absorbed.
Efforts to make curcumin more bioavailable have included standardization (to 95%)‚ and combining with lecithin and/or piperine. While standardization is common‚ it still hasn't resulted in absorption and plasma levels of curcumin needed to see the most benefit. In fact‚ clinical trials have used increasingly larger dosages (up to 10-12 grams daily) in order to get even a small amount into the bloodstream. Adding lecithin is one option that does increase absorption to a point (up to 5-fold in a small rat study)‚ but piperine presents potential issues with significant prescription interactions and liver function. Fortunately‚ one curcumin extract BCM-95 has been clinically tested and shown to have up to 10 times the bioavailability and greater blood retention time than standard 95% curcumin extracts‚ and 6.3 times more than curcumin complexed with lecithin and piperine. It is this curcumin formula that is featured in Curaphen.
