What is Curcumin?
Curcumin is the bio-active compound found in turmeric root, and its phenols give turmeric its yellow color. It’s been used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicines for centuries for promoting a healthy inflammation response in the body.*.
What does Curcumin do?
Curcumin promotes joint comfort and flexibility, and studies show that curcumin may suppress some inflammation-promoting enzymes in the body. It has also been studied for heart and brain health. There is, however, one major problem: curcumin is poorly absorbed. The body must first convert curcumin to tetra-hydro-curcumin before it can be utilized—an inefficient process in which benefits are lessened*.
What’s special about C3 Reduct®?
Ten years ago, 95% curcumin extract became widely available. This was a giant leap forward, but absorption and bioavailability problems remained. Today, there’s C3 Reduct®, an award-winning extract containing 95% tetra-hydro-curcumin— the most bio-active form that the body can use. This makes C3 Reduct® 3X more powerful than Curcumin extract, allowing you to take fewer pills to notice benefits.*
Why InnovixLabs’ High-Absorption Curcumin?
In addition to C3 Reduct®, the body-ready form of curcumin, our product is time-released for prolonged activity and benefit. We also include BioPerine®, a patented black pepper extract clinically shown to further enhance absorption.*

How does this compare to Healthy Origins version which uses Meriva Phytosome complex and claims to increase the bioavailability by 29x and is 1000mg per 2 caps. Thanks.
Hi TA, Meriva is a technology that enhances Curcumin absorption by mixing Curcumin with lecithin. There are several other competing technologies offered by various companies that claim to have superior absorption. Some, like Meriva claim 29X improved absorption. Others claim 10X and some even 350X. While some of that might be a stretch, all of these modern Curcumin technologies are better absorbed than traditional Curcumin extracts.
There haven't been any third party comparison to show which technology is best.
C3 Reduct is not an absorption technology, but rather a 'pre-digestion' technology. All Curcumin must be digested by the body and converted into Tetra Hydro Curcumin before many important benefits can be felt. This conversion is inefficient and a bottleneck, regardless of the absorption technology used. With C3 Reduct, this bottleneck is completely bypassed because your body does not have to make this inefficient conversion. This makes C3 Reduct about 3X more powerful than regular curcumin extracts.
I currently have to take 2 curcumin pills, three times a day. Jarrow Curcumin 95 brand. The label states “Tumeric concentrate (Curcumin C3 complex) (Curcuma longa) (95 % total curcuminoids) (rhizome) 500 mg.
How many pills of this product would I have to take? Matthias
Hi Matthias – both C3 Complex used in the Jarrow product and the C3 Reduct used in the InnovixLabs product are made by the same ingredient manufacturer, Sabinsa. According to them, 100 mg of C3 Reduct is roughly equal to 300 mg of C3 Complex. You currently consume 3000 mg of C3 Complex. Theoretically, this means you could get a similar effect by taking 1000 mg of C3 reduct. Each InnovixLabs product contains 200 mg of C3 Reduct, so it would be five tablets. - InnovixLabs Customer Service
Your single dosage is 200 mg whereas many other formulas are as much as 2000 mg per dosage. Is this because the extract is more concentrated? Do you make a formula with a higher dosage or is 1-2 pills/day sufficient? Thank you. Karen
Hi Karen – great question. We are talking apples and oranges. Pardon the Chemistry lesson: the root is Turmeric. Turmeric root contains 1 to 5% active ingredient called Curcumin. Once you’ve consumed Curcumin, your body must covert Curcumin to something called Tetra Hydro Curcumin before you feel the health benefits. It is important to know that only some of the Curcumin you take is converted to Tetra Hydro Curcumin or THC. Turmeric to Curcumin is concentration. Curcumin to THC is similar to metabolization. The 200 mg in this product is Tetra Hydro Curcumin. This is an end-product of Curcumin digestion or metabolism. Put another way, Turmeric root is the cow. Curcumin is the milk. THC is the butter. Now it becomes clear that comparing 2000 mg of cow to 200 mg of butter is not the same. Generally speaking, 200 mg of this product is roughly equivalent to 600 mg of Curcumin extract. The other point to make is that the 2000 mg per dosage is for multiple pills. It could be for 2 pills or 4. With the InnovixLabs products, most people need just one to two pills daily. Occasionally, people working with doctors have taken 4 to 6 per day under doctor supervision. - InnovixLabs Customer Service
Is your Curcumin product USP or GMP tested or certified?? I can not find any information on this issue. You mention 3rd party testing, who performs these tests?
Hi Peter – yes, it is made in a cGMP certified facility. All products are tested internally (in our lab) and also at Covance before release for sale. - InnovixLabs Customer Service
