May 29, 2013 — EuroMedica is celebrating the fact that Benny Antony, PhD, was declared “Innovator of the Year” for 2012 by the Spices Board for his work developing high-absorption BCM-95 Curcumin. The Spices Board of India is the government-approved organization that controls all spice-related activities in the country.
Curcumin, the beneficial compound found in turmeric (Curcuma longa), has long been associated with good health. However, curcumin is difficult for the body to absorb in the digestive tract, and much of the research surrounding the compound has used very large doses (8-12 grams) in order to show results.
Antony’s research led to a significant development of new methods of absorption. BCM-95 Curcumin is micronized (made into a very small particle size) and then re-blended with turmeric oils for naturally better absorption.
“We’re very proud to hear about this richly deserved honor,” says Terry Lemerond, founder and president of EuroMedica. “Dr. Antony’s work has meant that the power of curcumin is much more widely available than before.
In fact, BCM-95 shows up to 10 times better absorption and blood retention times than standard curcumin extracts. Because of this, BCM-95 has become the preferred curcumin in leading research around the world.”
High-absorption BCM-95 Curcumin is found in Curaphen, an award-winning supplement for pain and many other EuroMedica products that support the body’s healthy inflammation response, including CuraPro, Inflama-Med, CuraMax, Rhulief Plus, and more†.
