CurQFen®—Providing a New Benchmark in Curcumin Bioavailability
CurQFen® is a synergistic combination of curcumin and fenugreek for a highly bioavailable and potent ingredient that supports healthy stress response and optimal brain function.* CurQFen is now known to be more bioavailable in humans than other forms of curcumin, with recent research demonstrating its ability to cross the blood- brain barrier, thus setting a new benchmark for bioavailable curcumins.
One of the most intriguing and popular ingredients for nutritional products, turmeric is at the core of healing in Asia. Its active ingredient, curcumin, is well known for antioxidant properties and other health benefits. As many as 95% of curcumin products on the market are not well absorbed by the body and instead pass through the GI tract. CurQFen solves this problem with a unique and proprietary curcumagalactomannoside (CGM), a bioavailable form of curcuminoids from curcumin and galactomannans from soluble fenugreek dietary fiber. Recent research demonstrates both its enhanced bioavailability and efficacy.
- A 2014 study in the journal Food and Function notes that CGM was found to offer seven to 10 times higher bioavailability of curcumin in humans at a dose of 100 mg, as compared to the standard formulation.
- A 2015 study in the Journal of Functional Foods reported that CurQFen provided considerable stability of free curcuminoids to overcome the metabolic turnover to deliver high levels suitable for Blood-Brain Barrier permeability. As such, CurQFen possesses membrane permeability beyond its bioavailability to ensure adequate uptake to benefit cellular processes.
- 40 % Curcumin
- 60% soluble fiber (galactomannans) from Fenugreek.
