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.
Curcumin, a compound found in the spice turmeric, supports multiple pathways in the body and is a potent antioxidant. Some of the benefits associated with curcumin include immune system modulation and protection from oxidative stress.* The specialized extract in this formula has the highest absorption of any curcumin extract available for maximum health benefits.
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is the plant that supplies curcumin, considered its most valuable compound, so the proper product comparison is curcumin to curcumin. However, since many companies are comparing their curcumin absorption to turmeric, we provide this information as a service to our customers. Plain curcumin 95% delivers 20 to 50 times more curcumin as the same amount of turmeric. BCM-95 Curcumin has been proven to deliver up to 10 times more curcumin into the bloodstream as the same amount of plain curcumin.
