What is it
Curcumin is the active compound found in Turmeric (Curcuma longa), a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, making it a great choice for relieving inflammation especially in the joints.
Simple Curcumin is not very well absorbed by our digestive tract. Our Bio-Curcumin95 blend is a natural extract from Curcuma longa, containing 95% Curcuminoids – including Cucumin, demethoxycurcumin and curcumin-bisdemetoxin (BDMC).
To increase the absorption and therefore its efficiency, Curcuma Pro™ includes lecithin containing phosphatidylcholine (a phospholipid component of lecithin).
In addition, it is blended with concentrated Catechins extracted from Camellia sinensis (Green Tea), which then act in synergy as antioxidants.
The addition of Piper nigrum (Black Pepper) – a source of Piperine – which is well known for and essential in further enhancing the absorption and bio-availability of Curcumin.
