Thera-C is the first product in Malaysia to combine curcumin with Lignosus rhinoceros that contains potent anti-inflammatory and cartilage rejuvenating hydrophilic (water soluble) ingredients that are scientifically proven to be natural, safe and highly bioavailable.
Curcumin is the major yellow-orange pigment of turmeric, a common spice
and coloring agent derived from Curcuma longa. Curcumin is not only a health food, such as a food additive and dietary supplement, but also a drug candidate with prospective multipotent therapeutic applications.
When consumed directly, the absorption (bioavailability) of regular curcumin is quite poor. This is due to curcumin’s relative inability to dissolve in water and before the cells of the body can absorb it, it is rapidly metabolized and excreted out from the body. But the curcumin in Thera-C utilizes advanced techniques to reduce the particle size of curcumin to microscopic levels within a vegetable gum (gum ghatti) to dramatically increase its solubility and bioavailability. The definition of submicron is something shorter or smaller than one millionth of a meter.
