The Science

For decades, scientists searched for a way to enhance the absorbability of curcumin, the primary active compound in turmeric. Until our experts succeeded! 

We've developed a groundbreaking process that cleanly extracts curcumin and transforms it into a form most easily absorbed by your body. In fact, our micellar curcumin is over 1000 times more absorbable than unformulated curcumin, making it the world's only high-potency, 100% plant-based micellar curcumin.

In Kurk, the best of nature meets the best of science—amplifying curcumin's powerful anti-inflammatory properties.

What Is Curcumin?

Curcumin is at the core of Kurk, derived from the Turmeric plant's root. This potent and biologically-active compound offers profound health benefits.

Despite its potency, the body's limited ability to absorb it has hindered its full potential. But with Kurk, that's no longer the case—we've unlocked the full power of curcumin.

Curcumin studies

With over 20,000 peer-reviewed articles on, the scientific community is excited about the positive effects of curcumin on human health.

And now, Kurk offers you the most effective and delicious way to consume curcumin.

What is a Micelle?

Curcumin's crystal nature makes it challenging for the body to absorb—it's neither water-soluble nor fat-soluble. In typical supplements, much of the curcumin is expelled from the body before absorption.

Kurk uses small, spherical, plant-based eco-structures that create a protective bubble around curcumin, allowing it to be efficiently absorbed throughout your digestive tract.

Cellular Inflammation

Kurk is carefully crafted for optimal curcumin absorption—helping to reduce a transcription factor called NFkB from binding to DNA. This plays a vital role in helping the body control dysregulated inflammation. [1][2][3]
