Benefits of CurQfen®:
Anti-inflammatory • Supports joint health • Free form, bio-accessible, long-lasting
Curcumin is a substance from the turmeric plant, a spice commonly used in curry dishes that has clinically confirmed health benefits. The challenge is that it is not easily absorbed and it breaks down quickly in the body.
Curcuminoids in CurQfen® are made more accessible to the body in two ways. The first is by turning them into tiny nanoparticles.
The second is to combine curcumin with the fibres of another Indian herb, fenugreek, which allows the curcumin to adhere to the gut lining where it is slowly absorbed for long-lasting therapeutic effect.
