PEN-Cur's Bioavailability & Metabolism

High bioavailability and the steady release of free curcumin into the blood (12 hours) is the most important quality of PEN-Cur's unique formula, and it has been developed through innovative encapsulating technology utilising natural non-toxic biodegradable edible polymer nano-capsules.

Pre-clinical pharmacokinetics revealed that polymer encapsulated nano curcumin demonstrated at least a 9-fold increase in oral bioavailability when compared to curcumin administered with piperine as an absorption enhancer and 39 times greater bioavailability than standard curcumin that are currently being sold in the market.

PEN-Cur's nano curcumin particles are smaller than bacteria, viruses and red blood cells.
