HydroCurcumin™

Curcumin is a natural ingredient extracted from turmeric rhizome. Its health benefits such as anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-cancer have been proven by numerous scientific researches. And it is known that curcumin promotes healthy liver and brain function. But curcumin’s poor solubility limits its benefits and makes its application very difficult. HydroCurcumin™ enables solution-like dispersion of curcumin so that it can be used for various products with better bioavailability.
In an in-vivo test in rats to compare HydroCurcumin™ with raw curcumin, HydroCurcumin™ showed about ten times higher absorption profiles (AUC 9 times, Cmax 12 times).
And also we affirmed that HydroCurcumin™ has a strong anti-hangover efficacy through lowering the level of acetaldehyde.
