The root of the turmeric plant has been used has been used for centuries in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine to treat various inflammatory conditions. The natural phenol of turmeric responsible for its powerful anti-inflammatory properties is called Curcumin.
Curcumin is capable of interacting with a number of different molecular targets involved in cellular function.
Numerous studies over recent decades have substantiated the exciting mental and physical performance boosting benefits of curcumin. It’s has been shown to:
- Support normal health, vitality, and cellular function (1,2)
- Supports healthy brain function and may increase BDNF (Brain- Derived Neurotrophic Factor) (3,4)
- Supports normal, healthy metabolic function (5)
- Supports a calm mind and positive mood (4,6)
- Supports normal cellular and tissue recovery (7)
- Supports normal, healthy neural function (8)
- Supports normal, healthy hormone function (9,10)
Despite these potential benefits, curcumin powder has very low bioavailability… until NOW.
The downside for curcumin - and the reason it hasn’t (yet) fulfilled it’s potential as a health superstar - is that it has very low oral bioavailability, resulting from poor solubility in the aqueous phase of the digestive fluids, limited intestinal uptake, rapid metabolism, and urinary excretion. (11)
The science is too convincing and the benefits are too numerous to simply throw curcumin away due to “low bioavailability”. With Natural Stacks Liquid Curcumin, we’ve successfully created a curcumin product that overcomes the issue or absorption - providing you with a superior curcumin supplement that finally provides maximum value.
Creating a superior curcumin supplement
Unlike regular curcumin powder, we start with a standardized 95% curcumin extract - purified and concentrated from raw turmeric root. We use the patented NovaSOL solubilisation technology to suspend the curcumin extract in microscopic spheres called micelles which transform the dense and opaque extract into a body-ready liquid form. The liquid micelles are completely stable at gastric pH and are so microscopically small that the curcumin is readily absorbed and passed directly into the bloodstream.
A human clinical trial showed that NovaSOL Curcumin is 185X MORE BIOAVAILABLE than regular curcumin powder and 10X MORE BIOAVAILABLE than a fully standardized (95%) curcumin extract. It was also shown to be long lasting, remaining in blood plasma for up to 24 hours. (12)
To take it a step further, we combined the liquid curcumin micelles with organic coconut oil for superior bioavailability and additional health benefits.
NovaSOL Curcumin 185X MORE BIOAVAILABLE than curcumin powder and 10X MORE BIOAVAILABLE than a fully standardized (95%) curcumin extract.
According to scientists conducting independent research, “the liquid micellar formulation of curcumin significantly improved its oral bioavailability” and “Consumers will benefit dramatically from consuming relatively low doses of NovaSOL Curcumin (about 80 to 90 mg per day) as that is the bio-equivalent dose of 12 to 15 grams of curcumin powder.”
