Our science goes
The healing power of plants is nothing new. Civilizations have been using them to treat all kinds of conditions for centuries. What’s novel are the ways we can make plants more effective at healing.
Let’s take a look at curcumin. This bioactive ingredient derived from turmeric root has long been the subject of studies aimed at understanding its potential benefits. Curcumin has been proven to be effective at everything from treating inflammation to helping fight age-related chronic diseases. But the one hurdle science has historically had trouble overcoming is absorption. Getting curcumin to the right places in the body at the right time has been tough.
That’s where Moon + Mercury comes in. We’ve partnered with industry-leading scientists revolutionizing the way herbal supplements are absorbed by the body. Simply put, we attach curcumin to all-natural liposomes (fat cells) derived from palm and sunflower oil which act as the delivery system. Liposomes have been shown to greatly increase the absorption of herbs without the use of additives such as Bioperine® (black pepper extract).
It’s just one way we’re creating plant-based medicine that produces results you can actually feel. And it’s a feeling created by nature, and nurtured by us.
