Is Theracurmin better absorbed than other curcumin formulas - and can it really help lower my blood pressure?
Reviewed and edited by Tod Cooperman, M.D.
Answer:Theracurmin™ is a branded form of curcumin that has been reduced in particle size to form "nanoparticles" which are then microencapsulated. Studies of its absorption and effect on blood pressure have been conducted and are discussed, along with information about other forms of curcumin such as BCM-95, Meriva, and CurcuWin, in the Turmeric and Curcumin Supplements Review >>
