What is Curcumin?
Curcumin, also known as turmeric extract and curry extract, is a constituent of the turmeric spice but is also found in smaller amounts in other food sources like ginger. It takes a bold, bright yellow hue, which is why it’s also used in cosmetics and food coloring. Curcumin is a polyphenol, which is a micronutrient with health-promoting properties. Our extract is standardized to 95% curcuminoids.
How to Take a Curcumin Supplement
Curcumin is not easily absorbed by the body and requires the help of an enhancement, otherwise the nootropic supplement is essentially going to waste. One way to ensure better absorption is to take Curcumin with black pepper extract (piperine). Curcumin is a fat-soluble nutrient which means it can be taken with a fat source for better nutrient absorption. Fish oil is a great way to enhance the antioxidant effect of Curcumin Powder.
How Does Pairing Curcumin with Piperine Work?
Piperine is most commonly used to enhance bioavailability of other supplements, most famously, curcumin. Research has found that a piperine supplement may increase the bioavailability of curcumin by as much as 2000% from baseline levels. Piperine is able to achieve this by inhibiting or downregulating inhibiting phase II detoxification enzymes as well as the glucuronidation process in the liver. Glucuronidation attaches a glucuronide molecule to compounds so that they can be excreted through the urine. Piperine inhibits this process which may lead to elevated levels of certain compounds in the blood.
As a dietary supplement, take 500mg of Curcumin 95% Extract once daily.
