What is curcumin?

Curcumin is a well-tolerated natural anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant derived from rhizome (rootstock) of curcuma longa (turmeric).

Curcumin has a long history of use in Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine to relieve pain and inflammation associated with arthritis, rheumatism and other inflammatory conditions.

What is Cumerone®?

Cumerone® is an advanced bio-active curcumin formulation that significantly enhances curcumin absorption and bioavailability to improve onset of action and therapeutic effect.

Standard, raw or naturally occurring curcumin provides little therapeutic effect due to its poor solubility and poor absorption in the human body – it is said to have low bioavailability. In simple terms bioavailability is the degree to which a substance becomes available in the bloodstream for therapeutic use. As curcumin bioavailability increases, the amount of a curcumin required to produce the desired therapeutic effect decreases.

The key is how much curcumin is absorbed into your bloodstream not how much curcumin you consume.

With Cumerone® there is no longer any need to take high levels of curcumin. Cumerone® is one of the world’s richest sources of bio-active curcumin. It helps unlock the therapeutic power of curcumin … and is gentle enough to use every day.

How is Cumerone® different to other curcumin formulations?

Around the world a number of new curcumin formulations have been developed to improve curcumin absorption and bioavailability.

These new formulations differ from one another considerably not only in their structure but also in the way, the extent and the consistency with which they improve curcumin bioavailability.

Most of these new formulations simply blend curcumin with other ingredients known to assist absorption. Some wet-grind and homogenise their blend or recipe to reduce particle size to further assist – all help improve curcumin absorption and bioavailability.

However, a major disadvantage of these blends is that they are often unstable and can provide inconsistent delivery of curcumin into the bloodstream. The key is how much curcumin is absorbed into your bloodstream not how much curcumin you consume.

Cumerone® is different. Cumerone® binds curcumin to an oligosaccharide delivery molecule to form a stable molecular structure known as an inclusion or host-guest complex. The complex is then dissociated during a cholesterol exchange process (a well-studied and commonly used process in drug delivery) allowing the hydrophobic active component to be made bioavailable and quickly transported into the blood stream.

The Cumerone® bonded inclusion is highly stable and provides consistent delivery of curcumin across the cell membrane and into the bloodstream optimising its therapeutic effect.

How long does Nagestic Osteo take to work?

Typically you can expect to experience the therapeutic effect within two hours*.
