EuroPharma/Terry Naturally -CuraMed + OPC
This effective formula provides the targeted cellular protection you need to support healthy aging and reduce the risk of oxidative damage. It’s the right choice to promote overall well-being, every day.*
Powerful Cell Protection for:
CuraMed®+OPC features 3 full-strength ingredients with proven absorption and efficacy that can provide life-changing benefits:
- Clinically Studied Curcumin—up to 10 times the absorption and greater blood retention than plain curcumin
- High-absorption OPC French Grape Seed Extract VX1®—contains low molecular weight, tannin-free OPCs for high absorbability
- Turmerones from Turmeric Oil—turmerones (standardized to 60%); provide beneficial compounds for cellular health not found in standard curcumin or turmeric*
Why the extra turmerones and turmeric oil? Doesn’t the curcumin in CuraMed + OPC already have turmeric oil?
Yes, CuraMed® + OPC does contain turmeric oils to enhance curcumin’s absorption. However, the extra turmerones from the unique CO2-extracted turmeric oil provide additional benefits. Turmerones have been studied for their support of breast and liver cells, and enhance the overall power of the formula.*
Why is it so important that the French grape seed extract is tannin free?
Tannins are a form of proanthocyanidin (another OPC) found in grape seeds, stems, and skin. As a result, they are found in many grape seed extracts. However, they have a high molecular weight, too big for the body to absorb, and in any case, they don’t provide strong health benefits. CuraMed®+OPC provides only low-molecular weight OPCs, including a complex mixture of flavanolic monomers (catechin, epicatechin, epicatechin gallate) and flavanolic oligomers (dimers, trimers and tetramers).
What’s the difference between turmeric and curcumin?
Turmeric is the plant that provides curcumin. Typically, turmeric contains about 2-5% curcumin, so taking an unstandardized, powdered turmeric product means that very large amounts would be required to get a beneficial amount of curcumin. Additionally, standard curcumin extracts are poorly absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract. That’s why the curcumin in CuraMed + OPC is blended with turmeric oil to enhance absorption. While turmeric is excellent when used as a spice, the high absorption curcumin extract used in CuraMed®+OPC is a better choice for optimal health benefits.
