Structural formula
CAVACURMIN® is a cyclodextrin inclusion complex of curcumin with
gamma-Cyclodextrin (GRAS).

Curcumin is the principal curcuminoid found in turmeric and is considered its most active component. Turmeric has been used for centuries throughout Asia for medicinal purposes. Recent evidence shows that curcumin may have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities, linking traditional medicinal use and scientific evidence.

Curcumin itself is very water insoluble, and clinical trials in humans indicate that the systemic bioavailability of orally administered curcumin is very low. However Cyclodextrin complexed curcumin is water dispersible and a recent human clinical study showed that cyclodextrin complexed curcumin is significantly more bioavailable. CAVACURMIN® should be considered as a supplementary part of a balanced daily diet. It´s advisable to be taken with a meal - however there are no adverse effects reported when consumed without a meal.
