A Breakthrough in Curcumin Absorption
Featured in: Herbal Remedies and Formulations
At 20-45 x better utilization, CurcuminX4000™ is the most powerful and cost effective Curcumin supplement available. In a recent study 450mg CurcuminX4000™ delivered the equivalent benefits of 4000mg of ordinary Curcumin 95% capsules.
Has been used for thousands of years for its antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-infl ammatory & anti-fungal properties. Due to its inherent poor absorbency high doses of ordinary Curcumin95% have been needed to achieve the dramatic effects shown in worldwide studies. Now CurcuminX4000™ resolves this with its unique high utilization formulation.
Whether taken as a supplement or from food, regular curcumin is generally poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. Working with Indena S.p.A., the worldwide experts in botanical extract technology, we have found the answer to better curcumin absorption – phytosome technology. * Two studies have shown CurcuminX4000™ to be significantly better absorbed than a standardized curcumin extract.

The term “normal inflammatory response” may not mean much to you, but its physical impact on your body is vitally important. It can arise from trauma, infection, or other influences, and is a normal process that encourages healing. From the slightest seemingly harmless bump on your arm to a major health concern, the body’s normal inflammatory response is always at work to keep you as healthy as possible or to restore your health as best as it can. Of course, a lot of this depends on individual health.
The body’s normal inflammatory response is the protective response of the body’s tissues to irritation or injury. Sometimes this response can be prolonged due to a deficiency of essential fatty acids or other nutrients. In such cases, supplementation with beneficial fatty acids or other nutrients is often suggested. Sometimes there are other reasons for a prolonged inflammatory response and physical therapy or dietary changes may be helpful. For centuries, people have used natural chemicals found in plants (phytochemicals) to enhance the body’s normal inflammatory response to injury or wear and tear. For example, the bark of the willow tree was used to relieve pain and discomfort more than 2,000 years ago by the Greeks and Romans and evolved into the aspirin we use today.
At 20-45 x better utilization, CurcuminX4000™ is the most powerful and cost effective Curcumin supplement available. In a recent study 450mg CurcuminX4000™ delivered the equivalent benefits of 4000mg of ordinary Curcumin 95% capsules. Curcumin (from Turmeric) has been used for thousands of years for its antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties. Due to its inherent poor absorbency high doses of ordinary Curcumin 95% have been needed to achieve the dramatic effects shown in worldwide studies. Now CurcuminX4000™ resolves this with its unique high utilization formulation. Each capsule of CurcuminX4000™ contains 200mg of highly effective Curcumin Phytosome, which in a recent study showed an increase of utilization up to 45 X compared to ordinary Curcumin 95%.
The potential health benefits of curcumin are the subject of numerous ongoing clinical studies and have been featured in print media and television news programs. However, what makes curcumin so beneficial to the human body – its molecular structure – also makes it difficult to be absorbed into the bloodstream. If the curcumin isn’t absorbed, it can’t get to the body’s cells that need it. To address this issue, Thorne Research has teamed up with Indena S.p.A., the worldwide experts in botanical extract technology, to bring you CurcuminX4000, a well-absorbed curcumin extract.*
Phytosomes are plant extracts bound to phosphatidylcholine (fos-fa-tidal-ko-leen), which is an essential component of human cells. Our bodies make phosphatidylcholine, but we can also get it from food and supplements. When taken orally, phosphatidylcholine is very well absorbed.* To improve absorption, scientists at Indena found a way to attach curcumin to phosphatidylcholine – the result is CurcuminX4000! When you take CurcuminX4000 your body readily absorbs the phosphatidylcholine and the curcumin attached to it, resulting in more curcumin reaching the cells that can benefit from it.
A 2007 study published in the journal Cancer Chemotherapy and Pharmacology demonstrated CurcuminX4000?s superior bioavailability compared to a standardized curcumin extract. This animal study noted a significantly greater amount of curcumin in the blood and tissue after dosing with CurcuminX4000.
A human study compared blood levels of curcumin after dosing with 4 grams of a standardized curcuminoid extract to 450 mg CurcuminX4000 curcuminoids (bound to phosphatidylcholine), and found similar blood levels of curcumin.
