Inflammation is part of our natural healing process, but when it doesn't go away it can be physically debilitating and interfere with daily activities. Also, persistent inflammation is believed to be a major contributing factor to many chronic diseases including diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and asthma.


TURMERIC (Curcuma longa) is a tropical plant grown for its rhizome which is used in Indian cuisine, for example, giving curry its rich golden color. However, turmeric's curcumin content is only 2-5%. CURCUMIN is one of the curcuminoids found in turmeric, but if you are looking for therapeutic action, it is best to use supplemental turmeric which has been standardized for 95% curcuminoids.

Unfortunately, curcumin is not easily absorbed into the body, so even at 95% you may not be getting what you need to stop pain now. Fortunately, we have two really great products which have been proven in scientific studies to be very well absorbed and to remain active longer than regular standardized curcumin.


THERACURMIN from Natural Factors is created using advanced techniques to reduce the particle size of curcumin (by over 100 times) and increase solubility by mixing it with emulsifiers making it highly bioavailable. Theracurmin's increased absorption has been proven in several clinical studies.


CURAMED and CURAMIN from EuroPharma contain BCM-95, a form of curcumin that is 10 times stronger than plain curcumin products. It, too, has been clinically proven to provide consistent and long-lasting effects. Curamed is BCM-95 alone while Curamin has BCM-95 plus BosPure boswellia (an antiinflammatory herb that has been clinically shown to be up to 10 times more powerful than non-standardized boswellia), DL-phenylalanine and nattokinase.


Curcumin has been used to treat:

  • Alzheimer's
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma & Bronchitis
  • Cancer
  • Cirrhosis
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • IBS
  • Psoriasis
  • Wounds


DL-PHENYLALANINE is an amino acid that inhibits the breakdown of endorphins, our built-in pain killers. NATTOKINASE is an enzyme that enhances the healing process by promoting blood flow.
