No. 1 Absorbed Form of Curcumin‡
The health benefits of curcumin are widely recognized and diverse. Studies have shown positive results for memory, supporting a healthy inflammatory response, joint support, and the whole body benefits associated with antioxidants. However, curcumin’s effectiveness has been limited by poor absorption—until now! Theracurmin unlocks the power of curcumin with proprietary dispersion technology that increases absorption and makes it the most bioavailable form of curcumin on the market on a milligram-to-milligram basis.‡
Four New Supercharged Formulas
To fully express the power of Theracurmin, the No. 1 absorbed form of curcumin,‡ each of Natural Factor’s new CurcuminRich Optimizer products is formulated with a synergistic blend of other key nutrients and herbal supplements to enhance a particular attribute of curcumin:
• Memory Optimizer for mind and memory health
• Joint Optimizer for healthy joint function
• Whole Body Optimizer for healthy heart and brain function
• Cardio Optimizer for healthy heart and vascular function
CurcuminRich Memory Optimizer provides comprehensive support for cognitive health and brain function throughout life, and particularly in our later years. This innovative formula includes key botanical extracts that also support a healthy inflammatory response, promote healthy neurotransmitter function, and protect cell membranes, neurons and synapses. It combines Theracurmin with ResveratrolRich, EMIQ, bacopa, green tea phytosome and other key brain-boosting nutrients. It is specially formulated to support brain health at any age.
CurcuminRich Joint Optimizer synergistically combines Theracurmin with supercharged supplement extracts of white willow, devil’s claw, boswellia and Ultra Fruit Polyphenol Complex to exert powerful antioxidant activities and support a healthy inflammatory response. Together, they help support joint health, comfort and function. What is more, white willow includes a natural source of salicin, and Ultra Fruit Polyphenol Complex is a complex of seven whole-fruit concentrates that are rich in flavonoids that support healthy inflammatory responses.
Whole Body Optimizer
CurcuminRich Whole Body Optimizer supports cardiovascular and cognitive function by promoting a balanced inflammatory response while providing strong antioxidant protection. It combines Theracurmin with the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, boswellia, Ultra Fruit Complex and astaxanthin, for a multifaceted approach to whole body wellness and helps support healthy inflammatory responses.
Supporting healthy inflammatory responses and quenching free radicals are important for promoting cardiovascular health. CurcuminRich Cardio Optimizer contains Theracurmin and 600 mg of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids for synergistic support for healthy heart function. CurcuminRich Cardio Optimizer provides an optimal 2:1 ratio of EPA (400 mg) and DHA (200 mg) alongside 30 mg of Theracurmin in each soft gel to nourish the heart and vascular system.
Theracurmin Enhances the Benefits of Curcumin
Theracurmin is a natural preparation that utilizes advanced techniques to reduce the particle size of curcumin, as well as dramatically increase its solubility. The process in producing Theracurmin is actually quite simple. Curcumin is mixed with a vegetable gum (gum ghatti) and then ran through a machine that grinds the particle size down. Together, the curcumin and the gum produce a water-soluble suspension that can be dried and put into capsules, soft gels and powders.
The average particle size of the curcumin in Theracurmin is more than 100 times smaller than the average particle size of regular curcumin powder. This reduced particle size combined with the improved solubility in water is what makes Theracurmin so well-absorbed.
Because Theracurmin enhances the absorption of curcumin, all of the benefits associated with curcumin are also magnified. Theracurmin has shown better results in more double-blind, placebo-controlled studies than any other form of curcumin on the market. One of the key advantages with Theracurmin is its clinical results in so many different applications in these clinical trials. That accomplishes answering questions on proper dosage, safety, and efficacy.
These four new supercharged CurcuminRich Optimizer products further enhance the benefits of Theracurmin.

‡ Scientific scrutiny revealed that Theracurmin was more bioavailable on a milligram-to-milligram basis than other leadingo enhanced and regular forms of curcumin.
