CurcuVET® is a unique, patented curcumin product available exclusively from ThorneVET. For centuries people throughout Asia have benefited from the healthful effects of curcumin. Curcumin is the orange pigment in turmeric (the primary ingredient in curry) and is an antioxidant that offers numerous health benefits including for joint health, hepatic support, gastrointestinal health, and cardiovascular function – by helping to maintain the animals normal cytokine balance.
CurcuVET is a unique curcumin extract that is significantly better absorbed than other curcumin extracts. Whether taken as a supplement or from food, curcumin is generally poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. Scientists at Indena S.p.A., the worldwide experts in botanical extract technology, have uncovered the key to curcumin absorption – phytosome technology. Phytosomes are plant extracts bound to phospholipids, essential components of cell membranes. When taken orally, phospholipids are very well absorbed. By attaching a curcumin molecule to a phospholipid, the curcumin is ushered across the cell membrane for superior absorption.
