Sabinsa Publishes Book on Tetrahydrocurcuminoids

November 1, 2012

Sabinsa says recent research has found that tetrahydrocurcuminoids are actually superior antioxidants compared to curcuminoids themselves.

Thanks to its expertise in curcumin, ingredients supplier Sabinsa (East Windor, NJ) has published a new book on tetrahydrocurcuminoids, which are metabolites of curcuminoids.

Sabinsa says recent research has found that tetrahydrocurcuminoids are actually superior antioxidants compared to curcuminoids themselves. Additionally, because of tetrahydrocurcuminoids’ own unique pharmacological activities, they should be highlighted for their own unique health-promoting properties. The company states, “Tetrahydrocurcuminoids are among the major metabolites of curcuminoids, irrespective of mode of administration. The recent discovery that intestinal organisms in [the] human gut possess specific enzymes for metabolizing curcuminoids into tetrahydrocurcuminoids has further accentuated the importance of tetrahydrocurcuminoids.”

The book is titled Tetrahydrocurcuminoids, Curcumin C3 Reduct: The Cascading Antioxidant. It discusses many aspects of tetrahydrocurcuminoids, including their chemistry, pharmacology, preclinical and clinical studies, and safety profile. It discusses the use of tetrahydrocurcuminoids not only as a dietary supplement but also in cosmetics and nutricosmetics. For instance, Sabinsa uses them in its branded cosmetic ingredients SabiWhite and TetraPure.

Sabinsa plans to send copies of the book-just the latest in its series of published books on ingredients-to customers and curcumin researchers. Sabinsa customers can request a copy from their sales representative.
