Curcumin

Our Curcumin is grown in India and further processed by Sabinsa Corporation in the USA.


Curcumin is a bright yellow chemical produced by some plants. It is the principal curcuminoid of turmeric (Curcuma longa), a member of the ginger family. It is sold as an herbal supplement, cosmetics ingredient, food flavoring and food coloring product.


Curcumin has anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory effects, supports immune health and is currently investigated as an anti-cancer treatment.


Sabinsa's curcumin, which comes from India, contains more then 95% of active Curcuminoids from rhizomes of turmeric to provide maximum antioxidant or bioprotectant activity. Later this unique and patented composition of Curcuminoids was marketed under the brand name “Curcumin C3 Complex®”—available as a dietary supplement/ nutraceutical/ functional food/ health food


Indian turmeric is considered the best in the world market because of its high Curcumin content. Turmeric can be grown in diverse tropical conditions from sea level to 1500m above sea level, at a temperature range of 20-35 oC with an annual rainfall of 1500 mm or more, under rain-fed or irrigated conditions. Though it can be grown on different types of soils, it thrives best in well-drained sandy or clay loam soils with a pH range of 4.5-7.5 with good organic status. Depending upon the variety, the crop becomes ready for harvest in 7-9 months after planting during January-March. The land is ploughed and the rhizomes are gathered by hand picking or the clumps are carefully lifted with a spade. The harvested rhizomes are cleared of mud and other extraneous matter adhering to them.


Curcumin C3 Complex® achieved a major landmark in 2013 when it received clearance from the FDA, which meant that it now could be used in the food category as well. There are more than 80 research papers including 45+ clinical studies that have been published in peer-reviewed journals and counting..! Today, Sabinsa’s Curcumin C3 Complex® enjoys the special status of being the “Most Extensively Studied and Clinically Documented” 


The journey of Sabinsa’s Curcumin C3 Complex® clinical trials has helped exploring the potential of Curcumin in preventive healthcare and has carved a unique place for Curcumin in the dietary supplement industry making it “The Most Trusted Brand” for over two decades.
