Tetrahydrocurcuminoids are among the major metabolites of curcuminoids irrespective of mode of administration. The recent discovery that intestinal organisms in human gut possess specific enzymes for metabolizing curcuminoids into Tetrahydrocurcuminoids has further accentuated the importance of Tetrahydrocurcuminoids.
Tetrahydrocurcuminoids are devoid of the yellow color of curcuminoids and have long found applications in cosmetic industry. Sabinsa pioneered their use in many cosmetic applications with its branded products such as SabiWhite® .
Recent research has uncovered that the Tetrahydrocurcuminoids are in fact superior anti-oxidant than curcuminoids themselves. In addition Tetrahydrocurcuminoids possess interesting array of pharmacological activities that accord Tetrahydrocurcuminoids a separate status for being considered for their health promoting properties.
Keeping in pace with future of studies on curcuminoids, Sabinsa’s scientific team has brought out its latest book “Tetrahydrocurcuminoids, C3 Reduct®- The Cascading Antioxidant”. This book discusses many aspects of tetrahydrocurcuminoids including its chemistry, pharmacology, preclinical, clinical and safety profile.
