Ageing, unhealthy diet and lifestyle, stress, environmental factors and overactive immune response are risk factors that promote chronic inflammation – a persistent inflammation that can have long-term effects on the whole body.
Pain in the body, especially at the joint, is one of the most common symptoms of chronic inflammation. Joint discomfort includes joint pain, stiffness, swelling and some degree of disability.

Turmeric Powder vs Curcumin Extract vs Tetrahydrocurcumin (THC)
Turmeric is a spice and medicinal herb popularly used in India to treat joint inflammation, sprains, swelling caused by injury and allergy conditions. Its main active ingredient, curcumin, is a powerful antioxidant with anti-inflammatory property. But turmeric powder only contains 3% curcumin, which is very low.
Curcumin extract has to be converted into THC before absorption. As it is, curcumin extract is low in potency and does not get absorbed into the body easily. It is commonly identified by its distinct orange capsule form.
Tetrahydrocurcumin (THC) Extract
Since THC Curcumin C3 Reduct is already in the pre-converted form, the absorption barrier has been overcome and this makes it 250x more potent than regular curcumin. THC has more potent anti-inflammatory activity than curcumin. Sometimes referred to as white curcumin, it is usually in the form of white capsules.
Curcumin C3 Reduct is extracted from the dried rhizomes (underground stems) of turmeric (Curcuma longa) (final extract ratio 100:1) and standardised for a minimum 95% tetrahydrocurcuminoids (THCs).
Synergistic Quadruple Action with 4 Active Ingredients (functional dosages)
1. THC Curcumin C3 Reduct
250x more potent than regular curcumin, THC is already in its pre-converted form and does not require further conversion in the body, but gets absorbed directly. THC also offers extended biological benefits because of its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-glycation, cardioprotective and anti-hyperlipidemic properties.
2. BioPerine Black Pepper Extract (10 mg)
Used to enhance the bioavailability of another ingredient, BioPerine helps increase absorption of curcumin by up to 2000%.
3. Boswellin Super Boswellia Extract (30% AKBA)
Boswellin Super is a standardised herbal extract from the gum resin of Boswellia serrata (Indian frankincense). Boswellia extract had been used for its anti-inflammatory properties in Asian and African folk medicine for centuries. Among the four bowsellic acids in the extract, acetyl-11-keto-β-boswellic acid (AKBA) is most powerful in suppressing a pro-inflammatory enzyme to help provide relief for discomfort and support prevention of cartilage loss.
