The poor oral bioavailability contributed by the insolubility and rapid biotransformation has been established as the major limitation for the ‘functional’ or ‘nutraceutical’ applications of curcumin. Though a number of bioavailable formulations with enhanced bioavailability of ‘curcumin metabolites’ have been reported and available commercially, oral delivery forms capable of providing curcuminoids in its native bioactive forms as ‘free (unconjugated)’ curcuminoids remains as a challenge.

Recent understanding on the relative bioactivity and permeability of ‘free’ curcuminoids have demonstrated that curcuminglucuronides (major conjugated metabolites) possess no anticancer, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities (Bioorg. Med. Chem. 2014, 22, 435; Food Chem, 2014, 151, 126; Antioxidants, 2015, ISSN-2937) and low membrane permeability(J Pharmacol. Exptl Therapeutics, 2008, 326, 196). Thus, the key factor responsible for the efficacy of a curcumin formulation is turned out to be the “free curcuminoids availability” in plasma and its cellular distribution. The mere number of folds of bioavailability as determined by the area under curve of curcumin metabolites in plasma as reported so far became questionable.

CurQfen® is a ‘new generation’ bioavailable curcumin, capable of providing ‘free’ curcuminoids into plasma and further into organ tissues with improved BLOOD-BRAIN-BARRIER permeability (Journal of Functional Foods, 2015, 14, 215). CurQfen® is a 100% natural, food-grade and non-NANO formulation prepared by a GREEN process (patented) employing only water (FenuMATTM technology). Various animal and human studies have also demonstrated ‘free’ curcuminoids bioavailability (45.5-fold), pharmacokinetics, relative distribution of ‘free’ curcuminoids (>70%) (Journal of Functional Foods, 2016, 22, 578) and enhanced efficacy such as reduction in aortic stiffness among young obese people (study by University Kentucky, USA) (Journal of Functional Foods, 2017, 29, 154), reduction of stress/anxiety/fatigue (human) (J ClinPsychopharmacol, 2016, 36, 1), etc.

The novelty of CurQfen® mainly lies in the unique formulation using fenugreek galactomannan dietary fibre as a non-covalently linked “Curcumagalactomannoside” complex and its method of delivery without interfering with the detoxification enzymes. CurQfen® protects curcumin against the in vivo enzymatic biotransformation to curcumin metabolites being a macromolecular complex.CurQfen® has ‘self-affirmed GRAS’, published safety studies in animals/humans and suitable forchocolates/cereal bars/sachets/soups/ yogurts/gummies etc, in addition to capsules/tablets/soft gels/brisk effervescence forms.

Capsifen®

However, the very strong pungency, skin irritation, respiratory tract allergies, possible gastrointestinal mucosa bleeding and ulcers limits made it a forbidden limit!


Capsifen® - Designed and tailored to meet the challenges associated with the handling, safety and consumption of pungent capsaicinoids without compromising its physiological benefits. Capsifen® is the pure hydro-ethanolic extract of red chili peppers, formulated in the beadlet form, employing soluble dietary fiber (Galactomannans) isolated from the spice, Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum gracum). A patent pending technology was for the uniform impregnation of capsaicinoids in beadlet forms. The slow delivery of the actives in colloidal forms helps the better absorption into the blood stream. The beadlets masks the pungency effectively and helps the easy handling without any discomforts to the skin and respiratory tract.


Capsifen® the unique, sugar and gelatin free, commercially available standardized capsaicinoid beadlets works on a novel principle substantiated by in vitro/in vivo studies on delivery kinetics. At suitable concentrations for 100 to 250 mg dosage daily.

A Novel Formulation Of Capsaicin Beadlets

Red Chili Peppers (Capsicum annum L)
More than a kitchen spice!

Red chili peppers (Capsicum annum L and Capsicum frutescens) are rich in Capsaicinoids – naturally occurring vanilloids (capsaicin, dihydrocapsaicin, nordihydrocapsaicin) along with antioxidant carotenoids β-carotene, capsanthin and capsorubin1. Recent advances in the molecular events have identified the potential of capsaicinoids for therapeutic intervention against thermogenesis and enhanced energy expenditure. The additional benefits such as lipolysis which helps to lower the plasma triglyceride levels5, lipid oxidation and sense of satiety have positioned red chili derived capsaicinoids as an attractive nutritional ingredient in the fight against obesity2. Capsaicin also shows to enhance metabolic rate and body temperature4. It inhibits the nuclear transcription factors like NFkB and AP-1 to provide anti-inflammatory action6. Also induces apoptosis and inhibit prostate cancer cell and small cell lung cancer proliferation.

Ginginoll®

Supercritical
Extracted 6-gingerol
rich gingerol concentrates

Ginger (Zingiber officianalis) – More than a kitchen spice!

Recent advances in molecular nutrition and phyto-research has identified the molecule, 6-gingerol (1-(4'-hydroxy-3'-methoxyphenyl)-5-hydroxy-3-decanone) as the most potent and bioactive among the various gingerol isomers present in ginger11. A meta-analysis published in 2006 substantiates the use of ginger against postoperative nausea and vomiting. In five randomized trials with a total of 363 patients, ginger was more effective than placebo12. Fresh ginger juice powder and dry ginger hydro-ethanolic extract powder are found to be better for nausea, morning sickness and as a digestive aid at 100 to 250 mg dosage 3 or 4 times daily.

 

We isolate 6-gingerol rich ginger extract powder combining supercritical extraction methods with the state-of-the art spray drying techniques to offer free flowing 6-gingerol water soluble powder - Ginginoll®.
