Curcumin Turmeric Extract has been used in India for thousands of years as a spice and medicinal herb. Recently, science has started to back up what the Indians have known for a long time… it really does contain compounds with medicinal properties.
These compounds are called curcuminoids, the most important of which is curcumin. Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. However, the curcumin content of turmeric is not that high… it’s around 3%, by weight. We offer a 98% pure curcumin extract naturally derived from turmeric. We do not use synthetics in any of our products.
If you want to experience the full effects, then you need to take an extract that contains significant amounts of curcumin and mix in piperine, a natural substance that enhances the absorption of curcumin by 2000%.
