Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is the spice that gives curry its yellow color. Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric. By itself, turmeric contains a low level of curcumin, about 3%, by weight.
If you want to get the benefits of turmeric, this percentage is very low. This is why the Turmeric & Ginger supplement incorporates turmeric extract and turmeric root, offering much higher concentration of curcumin.
Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a root traditionally used in nausea and indigestion.Ginger has been found in studies that helps the relief of the symptoms of colitis while protecting the stomach.
Curcumin is poorly absorbed by the body, but in combination with the consumption of black pepper, which contains piperine, a natural substance, enhances the absorption of curcumin by 2,000%.
Turmeric & Ginger supplement uses black pepper extract which provides 95% piperine and is of high quality. Try taking turmeric with a fat-containing meal, as this can further increase absorption.
