Curcumin is one of the main active ingredients in turmeric, which is a common ingredient in many curries and other foods. It adds flavor, color, and nutrients.
It's a natural antioxidant and is by far one of the most potent anti-inflammatories.
It is also very difficult for your body to absorb, partly because your stomach acid destroys it. Most of what remains passes through your body without having any health benefit.
Taking larger doses is not only more expensive but hard on your already inflamed system.
Adding BioPerine (also known as piperine or black pepper extract) helps you absorb more, but it may not be safe for you. Recent studies show that BioPerine can cause overdosing of some medications and might reduce the blood’s ability to clot. That alone is a scary warning.
According to WebMD, RXlist, and Consumerlabs, piperine should be avoided for anyone taking prescription anti-cancers, antibiotics, or anti-infectives. Because of the danger of overdose, BioPerine is not recommended for anyone taking medications for common things like cholesterol or urinary tract infections.
So what is the solution? How can you safely get the MOST benefit from your curcumin?
We've created a proprietary patented process that we call Optisorb™.
Optisorb™ has been shown to increase the bio-availability of curcumin by up to 15x more! It is also safe.
