Turmeric (lat. Curcuma longa) is a spice obtained from an underground tree (rhizome), characteristic of India and Southeast region. Turmeric has a rich history in India as a spice, preservative and coloring agent, and has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries where it is well documented as a natural therapeutic agent.
The characteristic yellow color comes from polyphenol called curcumin, which is an active ingredient from the group of curcuminoids.
Native curcumin has extremely low bioavailability.
What is bioavailability?
Bioavailability is the ratio of nutrient inputs to the body and nutrients that are actually digested, absorbed and metabolized by conventional biochemical processes. Simply, it’s that part of the dose of a drug or food supplements that is actually available for activity at the targeted location.
Bioavailability is an important factor when it comes to product activity, but it is not the only one when the product is compared and when its effectiveness is evaluated.
Patented and protected extract of black pepper Bioperine® was added to the product Curcuma 95% extract of & Bioperine® to increase the bioavailability of curcumin and thus made it more usable to our body, up to 20 times.

Clinical study on St. John’s Medical College which was published in Planta Medica magazine provided clinical evidence of the role of piperine in increasing the bioavailability of curcumin (Majeed M. et al., 1998, Planta Med., 64 (4): 353-356).
The active effect of curcumin is much stronger than the effect of turmeric spices because it contains only 3-5% of curcuminoides while the curcunin extract contains 95% of curcuminoides.

High purity of the extract is essential to the bioavailability of the active substance because if the purity is higher the bioavailability of the curcumin is better.
BioPerine® was added to the product to increase the bioavailability of curcumin and thus made it more usable,up to 20 times, in our body.
BioPerine® significantly increases the bioavailability of various nutrients through increased absorption.
