Metabolics Turmeric and Piperine supplement contains Turmeric extract derived from the rhizomes of Curcuma longa and is a well-known, vibrant yellow, spice from India, which is commonly used in curries. The main active ingredients are natural polyphenols called curcuminoids and are found in the rhizome, which is a horizontal; underground stem of the plant that sends out shoots and roots, of Tumeric (Curcuma longa). Curcumin is the most important of the curcuminoids in turmeric as it has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Metabolics sources a Turmeric extract that is standardised to contain a high level (95%) of Curcuminoids (as curcumin), which suppress many molecules known to play significant roles in inflammation, as discussed in the nutritional study “Curcumin: A review of its’ effects on human health”. Susan J. Hewlings and Douglas S. Kalman, Foods. 2017;6(10):92. Published 2017 Oct 22. doi:10.3390/foods6100092
In addition to this, Curcumin has significant anti-oxidant properties by neutralising free radicals and also having the ability to stimulate your body’s antioxidant enzymes.
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) has multiple health benefits. It supports heart function, blood circulation and helps maintain the health of skin, joints, bones and the liver.
This supplement also contains Piperine, which is a substance found in black pepper that gives pepper its “hotness”. Curcumin is known to have poor bioavailablity across the blood brain barrier, Piperine enhances curcumin absorption in the body by up to 2,000%, and has its own health benefits. Piperine has been shown to help relieve nausea, headaches and poor digestion and also has anti-inflammatory properties. Combining Curcumin with Piperine increases its potential health benefits.
Supporting multiple health benefits such as heart function, blood circulation, digestion and helping to maintain the health of skin, joints, bones and the liver. In particular Turmeric’s active ingredient curcumin, when twined with Piperine, has strong anti-inflammatory and anti oxidant properties.
If you are looking for a high strength nutritional source of Curcumin from Turmeric to support your body’s own natural inflammatory process or seeking support with general health benefits that Turmeric offers -this is a highly bioavailable form thanks to the presence of piperine and should meet your requirements.
