CurcuVET® is a unique, patented curcumin product available exclusively from Thorne Vet. For centuries people throughout Asia have benefited from the healthful effects of curcumin. Curcumin is the orange pigment in turmeric (the primary ingredient in curry) and is a potent antioxidant that offers numerous health benefits including for joint health, hepatic support, gastrointestinal health, and cardiovascular function – by helping to maintain the animal's normal inflammatory response.
CurcuVET is a unique curcumin extract that is significantly better absorbed than other curcumin extracts. Whether taken as a supplement or from food, curcumin is generally poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. Scientists at Indena S.p.A., the worldwide experts in botanical extract technology, have uncovered the key to curcumin absorption – phytosome technology. Phytosomes are plant extracts bound to a phospholipid, in this case phosphatidylcholine (PC), an essential component of cell membranes. When taken orally, PC is very well absorbed. By attaching a curcumin molecule to a PC molecule, the PC ushers the curcumin across the cell membrane for superior absorption.
Curcumin has demonstrated its potential to help maintain the animal's normal inflammatory response. In numerous animal studies, curcumin has shown the ability to help maintain healthy intestinal mucosa under various adverse conditions. Among the effects noted in the various trials have been decreased nuclear factor-kappaB, nitric oxide, and free radicals in the colonic mucosa. For example, a small human pilot study on patients who had poor gastrointestinal health demonstrated that the administration of curcumin improved overall well-being, maintained the levels of biomarkers generally associated with the body's normal inflammatory response, and served as a non-drug adjunct that did not disrupt the use of conventional medications.
