What is Turmeric?
Turmeric (Curcuma Longa) is a golden rhizome root related to ginger. It has been used for thousands of years in Chinese traditional medicine and in Indian Ayurveda as a therapeutic and healing herb. It also has a long history as a spice and food additive, even giving mustard its iconic yellow color. Along with its popular use, it is one of the most well researched plants in the world, with hundreds of clinical and scientific studies done on the medicinal properties and benefits of turmeric and its main active ingredient, curcumin.
Highly Bioavailable Formula – Scientifically Developed
BioEmblem has designed a special blend of ingredients to improve bioavailability and to increase the overall benefit to the body.
- 95% Standardized Curcumin Extract: Curcumin is often regarded as the main active ingredient in turmeric. But raw turmeric rhizome (as used in foods) has only around 3% curcumin content, so we've included this highly concentrated form of curcumin extract that has been standardized to ~32 times the typical dosage of curcuminoids.
- Organic Turmeric Root Powder: Ground powder from non-GMO, organic, whole food sources. While lower in curcumin content, studies show there are other beneficial compounds found in whole turmeric root. Amongst them is natural dietary fiber, which helps the absorption of curcumin into the body.
- BioPerine®: This trademark black pepper extract (piperine) has been clinically studied to increase bioavailability of curcumin by 2000%. Since some studies show curcumin to not be easily absorbed into the bloodstream, this addition is extremely important to the potency and effectiveness of our formula.
- Safe, Effective Dosage: The amount and ratio of ingredients are balanced so they can provide the most benefits while minimizing potential side effects (such as upset stomach).
