Theracurmin® starts off as raw turmeric, sourced and harvested from carefully selected farms and production areas in Asia.
The ingredients in Theracurmin® are raw materials that can be taken safely from the start. Theracurmin is made with everyone in mind and is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and non-allergic.
Starting as Turmeric, the raw materials are dried, ground, and transformed into curcumin. The raw curcumin powder is then micronized with patented technology and spray-dried. After being carefully inspected for quality control, the manufactured Theracurmin® is packed and shipped.
What is Turmeric?
Turmeric is a perennial plant of the ginger family and is widely spread throughout Southeast Asia. Commonly used as a spice, flavoring, and coloring agent and as a food preservative, turmeric is used often in curries.
What is Curcumin?
Curcumin is a polyphenol contained in the rhizome of turmeric and is the main active ingredient in turmeric. Curcumin gives turmeric its unmistakable, bright yellow color. Curcumin is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties, and for being a great source of anti-oxidants. However, when taken in a standard powdered form the benefits are not maximized due to low bioavailability. Studies are constantly being conducted on curcumin and its benefits.
What is Theracurmin®?
Theracurmin® was created in order to combat the low bioavailability and absorption rates that curcumin has. Using Japanese technology such as sub-micron particle processing and surface controlled technique, particles of curcumin are made to optimum size to be more easily absorbed by the human body.
Theracurmin® vs. Curcurmin
Theracurmin® is significantly reduced in size compared to regular curcumin particles, making it easily absorbable, and giving it a higher bioavailability than raw curcumin.

Absorption of Theracurmin®
The larger the particle size, the harder it is to be absorbed into our bodies. While turmeric has been used as a health supplement for centuries, a large amount needs to be ingested in order to see any benefits. Theracurmin® possesses high bioavailability, making it easier for our bodies to absorb and make use of its health properties.
Dispersion of Curcumin
The small particle size of Theracurmin® also makes it easy to blend in liquid. The dispersion of Theracurmin® in water remains the same color and opacity and does not settle compared to other curcumin preparations.
Dispersion in Action
Once stirred into a liquid, Theracurmin® does not clump together, sit on top of the surface or sink to the bottom, but disperses evenly throughout the liquid. Consuming Theracurmin® this way will not impact its health properties.
90 mg of Theracurmin® is over 42 times more bioavailable than 90 mg of ordinary curcumin. The study conducted was a randomized, open-label, cross-over study with 24 healthy participants. Findings showed that Theracurmin® is more easily absorbed in the body than regular curcumin, making Theracurmin® more effective.

What is the curcumin content of Theracurmin®?
The curcumin content of Theracurmin® is 30%, and no other active ingredients are used. This means 300mg of raw Theracurmin® equates to 90mg of active Theracurmin®.
What is the standard dosage?
Standard dosage depends on the regulation of each country. In reference to clinical studies, it is recommended to take 90mg twice a day for optimal effect.
Is Theracurmin® stable at high light intensity? At high heat?
Yes, Theracurmin® shows high stability in both Photostability and Thermal stability tests. It showed little changes at a light intensity of 500 Langley and 1000 Langley (500 Langley equivalent to UV of two summer days), and showed stable survival rate at 95°C and 120°C.
Does Theracurmin® have a distinct taste or smell?
Theracurmin® has close to no taste or smell when taken on its own, which makes the material compatible with various forms of food applications such as beverages and gummies.
Theracurmin® is clinically proven to have a positive impact on people’s health and can be taken by everyone. People wanting to improve or maintain their health can do so with Theracurmin®.
