C3® Reduct: 'First to deliver curcumin as a metabolite' - Tetrahydrocurcuminoid: the directly active form of turmeric

C3® Reduct allows to use the active form of turmeric curcuminoids from Curcuma longa, and move away from the myth of bioavailability. A white, highly stable powder, C3® Reduct is equally suitable for gummies, gels, bars, tablets, capsules, premixes, etc...Curcuminoids exert their effects via gastrointestinal and systemic routes. They are metabolised by intestinal bacteria into tetrahydrocurcuminoids (THCs), also depending on their bioavailability. .C3® Reduct overcomes the limited bioavailability of curcuminoids in the most functional way, by providing the active metabolite directly. Preliminary studies have shown that THC has a much higher bioavailability than curcuminoids by up to 72 times..Research has shown that C3® Reduct is a remarkable antioxidant, superior even to curcumin itself in this respect..The beneficial impact of THCs on colon health has also been the subject of solid scientific reports. .THCs are also an excellent anti-inflammatory and anti-glycation agent...Regulation: .Many 'improved' turmeric extracts include new technologies, new processes or formulations with chemicals, supposedly to increase bioavailability, in plasma and sometimes to the detriment of biologically active forms. In addition, there is the challenge of being considered as novel foods since they were developed after May 1997..C3® Reduct, which directly contains the metabolites of curcuminoids - THCs - has obtained Novel Food approval from EFSA (published 06/2022), for a dosage of up to 140mg. This is probably the first time that a metabolite of a nutrient has been approved as a Novel Food. C3 Reduct means you don't have to worry about the current regulatory concerns inherent in turmeric extracts...It is a creamy white crystalline powder (easier to clean from equipment), with a total content of 95% THCs, the hydrogenated derivatives of curcuminoids, it contains a minimum of 95% tetrahydrocurcuminoids (THC), namely tetrahydrocurcumin (THC), tetrahydrodemethoxycurcumin (THDMC) and tetrahydrobisdemethoxycurcumin (THBDMC)...Studies: Regular studies are carried out with THCs (most recently: efficacy in the treatment of mouth ulcers and gingivitis).
  • Pharmacokinetics: Preliminary studies have shown that THC has a much higher bioavailability than curcuminoids (up to 72 times) - THC is more stable at physiological pH than curcumin, which may also favour its transport in the biological system.
  • Powerful antioxidant : A series of studies conducted by Sabinsa Corporation showed that THC was more effective than curcumin in its ability to catch free radicals.
  • AMP-Kinase - Energy: THC increases phosphorylation of AMP-activated protein kinase (stimulates production of ATP and inhibits its consumption) - THC is 100,000 times more potent than metformin (curcumin: 400 times)
  • Anti-glycation - Anti-ageing: An anti-glycation agent such as THC can prevent the formation of AGEs (collagen and elastin often affected by glycation in the dermis, which contributes to skin slackening).
  • Anti-inflammatory: THCs are said to have superior effects to curcumin in inhibiting levels of pro-inflammatory mediators and suppressing the expression of COX-2.
  • Oral health - Gingivitis - leukoplakia - Canker sores (clinical study): reduction in symptoms of canker sores and gingivitis - Food supplement: 2 chewable tablets of 100 mg/day // Cosmetics: 2% gel 5 times/day
..In cosmetics, it has a strong whitening effect on the skin and has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and tyrosinase inhibiting effects. Also effective against fungal infections of the skin, hair and nails (antifungal) - see our TetraPure..There's various articles on our website: https://www.becarre-natural.com/news/65/C3-Reduct-R-Reductive-Bioavailable-Curcuminoid-Metabolites , as well as information in our brochure on pages 5 and 26.

Curcuma - Free curcumins, 3 peaks, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, digestion ...

Curcuma longa is a plant of the ginger family that has been used for centuries in Asia, also known as Indian saffron, it is among the oldest natural medications in the world. Indeed, the rhizome of this perennial plant has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine.
In China, its rhizomes were dried and powdered to be used to soothe pain and treat congestion. In Ayurvedic medicine, curcuma was immediately appreciated for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It can even be seen in the Atharva-Veda - a sacred text of Hinduism - around the 4th century. It is referred to there as "Hrudroga", meaning a remedy useful in the treatment of heart problems.
Many properties are recognized for curcuma: anti-inflammatory, helps digestion, IBD, regulator of blood sugar (type 2 diabetes), hepatoprotector, anti-cancer ...
The curcuma rhizome contains a set of substances, curcuminoids, of which curcumin is the most abundant. Chemically, these substances have marked antioxidant properties, as well as anti-inflammatory properties. In addition, curcumin has shown, in cell cultures, an ability to block the multiplication of several types of cancer cells. Curcuminoids are metabolized in the body, especially to tetrahydrocurcuminoids.
