What is Curcumin?
Curcumin is the active ingredient found in the spice turmeric which is derived from the plant Curcuma longa Linn – a member of the ginger family which has been used in Asian countries as a spice and for health purposes for centuries.
Curcumin is the principle curcuminoid extracted from turmeric, they are a rich source of anti-inflammatories and anti-oxidants with other key benefits.
Curcumin is one of the oldest spices in the world, it has been used for over 3000 years and is still used today as part of a healthy and effective diet. Turmeric has stood the test of time and then some.
Curcumin has been shown to be very effective against specific ailments as well as being an efficient health booster for your body.
Research has shown curcumin to be first and foremost a great natural anti-inflammatory agent.
This is important as many of the health issues we experience today are a result of inflammation occurring in different parts of the body. Whilst you may argue that inflammation is a necessary response in helping the body identify something is wrong, often the inflammation cascade is an overreaction and the process often ends up being more damaging for the body than beneficial which is why turmeric has so much potential.
We have carefully dosed all the ingredients in CurcuBlast to complement each other both biologically and flavour-wise.
Ingredients that increase the bioavailability of curcumin have been added in the correct dosage so as to have a marked effect but not to cause irritation of the digestive tract.
We have added turmeric root powder to our formula instead of curcumin extract – the thinking behind this is that although curcumin extract is a very potent and beneficial ingredient, turmeric root powder contains health benefits that are not only attributed to curcumin and provides more of an all-round balanced profile.
What is Bioavailability?
Bioavailability is the term for how much of the active ingredient is actually absorbed/consumed by your body. We have carefully dosed the ingredients so that the bioavailability of curcumin is optimised and has the best effect.
We have included only high-quality sourced ingredients into our shake which we feel will be reflected in the results. We have stayed away from fillers and useless by-product ingredients and have only included what we felt was necessary.
We have engineered this product so that ultimately, it’s a pleasure to drink and not a chore.
The typical vegan-based protein shakes have historically been given bad press and with good reason too, if they haven’t tasted bad then they don’t stack up nutritionally, and if they have an impressive nutritional profile then they don’t taste very pleasant, hemp protein notably has notorious elements of chalkiness to it.
In recent times soy protein sources have received negative reviews so we decided to work solely with plant-based protein sources.
When developing a product which is based on a powerhouse ingredient like turmeric it’s important to figure out how much you want it to play a part in the overall taste and end profile of the product – we decided we wanted there to be enough turmeric in there to have an effect but not too much so that the end taste isn’t overpowered by it.
The texture of CurcuBlast is the one thing we really tried to improve and be better than any other vegan shakes on the market. When using plant source proteins especially hemp it can leave an unwanted chalky aftertaste which leaves many users unsatisfied or simply put off from trying vegan shakes, which we feel is a shame. It’s hard enough for vegans to find a protein shake which is nutritionally very healthy and tastes nice. We feel we have achieved both with CurcuBlast and hope you feel the same.
