Curcumin is the key compound that is in the root of the turmeric plant and is what gives turmeric its signature color. Curcumin is made up of many different beneficial molecules called curcuminoids. Unfortunately, curcumin and its beneficial curcuminoids only occur in a turmeric at very low levels in regular turmeric, only about 2%-5%. that's why we standardize our curcumin to 95% curcuminoids and include a full range of curcuminoids for maximum benefits.
BioPerine is a patented extract that comes from the famous spice black pepper. Turmeric is notoriously hard to absorb but by including one of the highest levels of BioPerine on the market in our supplement, we have solved that problem! BioPerine comes from extracting the compound known as Piperine from black pepper. Piperine is what gives black pepper its spicy pungent smell, and is the key ingredient in BioPerine.
Typically we recommend that you take at least two capsules in the first half of the day. This way you will feel the benefits throughout the day. You can take with food but it is not necessary. Turmeric is fat soluble so taking it with healthy fats may be helpful. Keep in mind it may take up to two weeks for you to start feeling the full effects and consistently taking your supplement is key, try not to skip days. If you have an acute condition you can safely double your daily dose to help.
