Oregon Wild Harvest Turmeric Extract
This balanced formulation is both safe and effective. Whole turmeric powder is poorly absorbed; therefore we have used the standardized extract to deliver the curcumin more efficiently. To further enhance absorption, we have added Bioperine®. Scientific studies show that the addition of Bioperine® improves curcumin absorption, increasing bioavailability to the body.
Studies show that concomitant administration of 20 mg of piperine with 2 g of curcumin increases the bioavailability of curcumin by 2000%. The addition of whole turmeric powder provides all the synergistic constiuents that have been removed in the standardized extract.
As an herbal supplement, take one capsule one to three times daily with food.
