Doctor's Best Curcumin With Bioperine 500mg
Potent Antioxidant Protection For Cellular Health!
Best Curcumin C3 Complex with BioPerine tablets and Best Curcumin w/BioPerine capsules contain a potent standardized extract of Curcuma longa root, commonly known as turmeric. Turmeric is the yellow spice that gives flavor to curried dishes. The herb has been employed in the Ayurvedic healing tradition for centuries as a folk remedy. The active ingredients in Curcuma longa are a group of plant substances called curcuminoids, a class of compounds that have demonstrated potent antioxidant properties in scientific studies. Curcuminoids may benefit the joints, brain, heart and the circulatory system by helping to neutralize free-radicals. Curcuminoids are responsible for turmeric's distinctive yellow color. Although the term "curcumin" is used as a name for curcuminoids, "pure" curcumin is just one of the naturally occurring curcuminoids.
Curcumin C3 Complex supplies 95% total curcuminoids, including "pure" curcumin, bisdemethoxy curcumin and demethoxy curcumin. BioPerine is an extract of Black Pepper fruit that contains 95-98% piperine. BioPerine is added as a natural bioenhancer to promote absorption of the product.
Turmeric- History and Traditional Usage
Native to Southeast Asia, Curcuma longa is a tall tropical shrub with large oblong leaves and pale yellow flowers. The genus "Curcuma" belongs to the Zingiberaceae family, which includes ginger.1 The plant possesses a large root structure with fleshy, bulbous underground parts called "rhizomes". These rhizomes, known as turmeric root, are harvested at maturity, dried and cured for commercial use. Chemical analysis shows that dried turmeric contains essential and volatile oils, with a curcuminoid content of 2.5 to 5.0 %.
In addition to its popularity as a spice, turmeric is used as a dye for cloth and as a coloring agent in foods and cosmetics, thanks to its rich yellow color. Turmeric also serves as a preservative, probably owing to the antioxidant and antimicrobial properties of curcumin. Extracts of Curcuma longa have demonstrated in vitro antibacterial and anti-fungal effects.
Turmeric is named in ancient Ayurvedic and Chinese herbal texts as a traditional folk remedy. Historically, turmeric was used externally for wounds, and sprains, and internally for digestive health, joint support, enhancement of liver health, and immune wellness.
