For decades, scientists searched for a way to make curcumin more absorbable. Our experts cracked the code.
We have developed a process that allows us to extract curcumin, distill it and break it down into the form most easily absorbed by your body. Over 1000x more absorbable than unformulated curcumin, this is the world's only high-potency, 100% plant-based micellar curcumin.
In Kurk, the best of nature meets the best of science—and curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties are amplified.
What Is Curcumin?
Curcumin is the beating heart of Kurk. This potent, biologically-active compound is derived from the root of the Turmeric plant—and delivers profound health benefits.
It’s a powerful ingredient, but it's potential has been limited because it’s naturally difficult for the body to absorb. Until now. Until Kurk.
With over 20,000 peer reviewed articles on PubMed.gov - it is clear why the scientific community is excited about the results of curcumin in human health. Kurk is the most effective way to consume curcumin, deliciously.
What is a Micelle?
The body has difficulty absorbing curcumin because it is neither water-soluble nor fat-soluble. To improve the absorption of curcumin, it must be converted into a micelle structure. However, the body does not easily or quickly convert curcumin into micelles, so it is usually expelled from the body before it can be absorbed.
With KURK, the curcumin is disguised as oil-soluble and the micelle structure is pre-made, allowing it to be easily and quickly absorbed by the body.
A breakthrough in absorption
We've cracked the code! After 4 years of R&D in our purpose built lab in Twickenham, we have made a true world-first.
Each batch of Kurk is made without using harsh petrochemicals or solvents, and is easily the most effective solution in the world.
100% Plants :
Filtered Water, MyCurc+™ (Filtered Water, Natural Flavouring: Cinnamon extract; Tea Saponin, Soy Lecithin, Curcumin from Turmeric), Natural flavouring, Vitamin B12.
Made in UK
Kurk is made at our purpose built innovation lab in Twickenham where we have setup a clean and green research facility to ensure we continue to innovate and enhance natural plant compunds.
Liquid gold for health.
Exceptional absorption powers.
Our experts have distilled curcumin and made it into the form that’s most easily absorbed by your body—liquid. It’s the ultimate supplement for optimised health—supporting immunity, brain function, and pain-relief.
The curcumin content of turmeric is tiny—only 3% on average. Our experts have discovered a process that delivers the curcumin content of 8kg of turmeric into 100ml of active, effective liquid curcumin.
Now joined by an unparalleled team of doctors, fitness experts, wellness professionals, and food scientists, the founders of Kurk are using science to unlock nature’s power—and optimise your health.
