CoCurcumin: Using an in-house developed platform technology, Sustentials™ has developed a line of innovative specialised offering with curcumin. 

Curcumin, the extract from turmeric, one of the widely researched ingredients is known for its potent anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. It is largely limited by its low bioavailability as it suffers from poor solubility and rapid metabolism.

CoCurcumin, a patented line of products, are molecular complexes of curcumin with another synergistic nutraceutical resulting in highly bioavailable curcumin with longer systemic retention time in the blood plasma. The technology follows a multi-pronged approach to address all factors of bioavailability: from improving solubility steeply, surpassing liver metabolism in a biosafe manner without inhibiting any enzymes and effectively improving the amount of free curcumin delivered in the blood. With high dispersbility, the CoCurcumin complexes can be used in food and beverages apart from dietary supplement applications. Backed by efficacy, clinicals and comparative studies, the product and technology allows customers to have differentiated and unique offerings in their portfolio.

Current offerings: CoCurcumin-EGCG; CoCurcumin-FOS; CoCurcumin-Ferulic acid; CoCurcumin-Green tea with different bioavailability based on different application.

Phytoextracts: High quality and scientifically proven Indian herbal extracts with assured traceability, product consistency and farm-to-packaging process controls.
