NutraCos – Separating science from verbosity – comparison of branded curcumins
NutraCos, European and among pharmacists highly respected magazine, in one of its researches compared several branded curcumin products in EU and United States market. It also gave special emphasis to the bioavailability of the curcumin as many producers recommend reduced daily dosage of the Curcumin based on higher – amount of presumed bioavailability. This is not a healthy approach as these formulations are merely increasing the biologically insignificant phase II metabolites rather than increasing the active metabolites or Curcumin itself. Bioavailability is an important aspect of nutrient metabolism and its concept should not be used for just marketing purpose.
