Curcumin has been at the forefront of my recovery plans for 16 years. It was so rare when we first introduced it and because of handling problems it was difficult to find a lab to produce supplements in the USA. Our first offering was in tablet form from a single specialist lab in France. It took a few years to persuade labs in the USA that it was worth setting up the special encapsulation labs needed to work with Curcumin. The challenge is that due to its small molecules they were so light they would not easily flow into a capsule.
What is Turmeric?
I am sure you know but in case you have just arrived on this planet, turmeric is an inexpensive spice that has been used for thousands of years for its health benefits, food flavouring, as a morning health drink (in coconut milk) and as a dye for cloth.
What is Curcumin?
Curcumin is an extract from turmeric that provided numerous benefits that built its reputation as a health food. Only 2% by weight of Curcumin can be extracted from turmeric so therefore you would need to consume 50x more turmeric to consume the same amount by weight of turmeric.
Curcumin does not easily pass through the intestines into the bloodstream and only approx. 7% of the curcumin in a capsule will pass through. The rest simply ends up in the toilet. Most companies now mix the Curcumin with piperine that is an extract of black pepper to increase absorbability of curcumin.
Even Better News!
I did use this formulation up to 8 years ago but then found something better. It was well known that taking turmeric with a fatty meal improved the health benefits. A lab in Italy managed to bind the tiny molecules to a fat (lecithin) that made it easier to encapsulate. There was even better news when they conducted studies to compare not just absorbability but effectiveness of this delivery system compared to ordinary curcumin. The studies show better results with health outcomes of between 2,300% – 4,000% compared with curcumin. This superior curcumin is called CurcuminX4000 and the results in every day circumstances are outstanding
