Do the graphs showing comparative absorption rates of various curcumin products indicate the absorption of FREE CURCUMIN or metabolites?

Do the graphs showing comparative absorption rates of various curcumin products indicate the absorption of FREE CURCUMIN or metabolites?


Best Answer

Answer: Free Curcumin, not metabolites. Per the absorption study:

"Curcuminoids were quantified against external standard curves. Curcumin (CAS #458-37-7; purity >= 92.2), DMC (CAS #22608-11-13; purity >= 98.3%) and BDMC (CAS #24939-16-0; purity >= 99.4%) standards were obtained from Chromadex (Irvie, USA)"


The following screenshot image shows only Curcumin (not DMC or BDMC). 

Compare the "Native" results (which is the raw curcumin) with the "Micelles" data, which is the formula we use:
