What is Turmeric?
Turmeric is an ancient spice, which has been used for thousands of years in India as a powerful medicinal ingredient. Turmeric is widely used throughout India and Indonesia, and is a main ingredient in curry. Curcuminoids are the chemical component of curcumin, which is one of the most important compounds found in turmeric.
Research has shown that curcumin contains powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and effects. It is now known that the curcumin content of turmeric in its natural state is approximately 3% by weight, which is quite low. Since the quantity of curcumin in turmeric is so low and is difficult to absorb, it is challenging to truly benefit from turmeric by simply using the spice in your food.
Turmeric is notorious for being poorly absorbed by the body. As such, there have been several attempts at increasing the absorption and bioavailability of turmeric mainly through the use of additives or adjuncts, such as black pepper, in supplements. Unfortunately, they have come with various limitations to their potential use in food or as therapeutic entities.
Overcoming the Barrier of Poor Absorption
After extensive research in conjunction with their partners in India, they have developed a technology to unlock turmeric’s full medicinal potential by overcoming the obstacle of poor absorption. The key is in their PNS (Polar Nonpolar Sandwich) Technology, whereby the curcuminoids PLUS over 250 other highly beneficial turmeric root nutrients are extracted, preserved and re-packaged inside of a natural turmeric matrix…thereby eliminating the need to use additives and adjuncts, such as black pepper (piperine)!
Their research has substantiated that the association of curcuminoids within its own natural turmeric matrix may be an excellent strategy to overcome the limitations seen in other technologies as the healthy nutrients well protected inside a stable, easily digestible molecule.
As such, their premium, scientifically derived formula is the first and only turmeric supplement to provide 100% turmeric root nutrition, in its natural matrix. Furthermore, their product has been clinically proven to remain in the bloodstream for 24 hours, and to have superior absorption compared to the standard 95% curcumin offered in other turmeric supplements by 10-fold.

Dosage – How much turmeric per day as suggested by Dr. D's?
