While the health benefits of curcumin, the active compound from the Indian spice known as turmeric, have been well-documented, it is also well-known that curcumin is not well-absorbed when taken orally (by mouth). Different methods have been used to increase absorption, including combining curcumin with lecithin or piperine (black pepper). The best absorption has been achieved when the extract is ground into a very small particle size and combined with turmeric oils and phospholipids. This combination is up to 10 times better absorbed than standard curcumin.
