What is Curcumin Complex?
Curcumin is the bioactive part of Turmeric and is extracted from the stem of the Curcuma Longa plant. It is known to have anti-inflammatory properties and fairly good evidence of relief from chronic pain and depression.
Our Curcumin Complex is formulated with Piperine, which is extracted from the Piper Nigrum plant that produces white and black pepper. Research has found that Piperine increases the absorption of some supplements that are consumed orally such as Curcumin.
This is why we have decided to formulate our Curcumin capsules with Piperine. Studies have found that the addition of Piperine significantly improves Curcumin’s bioavailability. Some research has found that the increase can be as much as 20-fold.
This natural complex has many health benefits, including:
- Supporting organ and joint health
- Helping to maintain a healthy cellular function
- Helping with pain management
Additionally, Curcumin seems to increase the synthesis of DHA and raise concentrations in the brain and liver. DHA is a chain of omega-3 fatty acid that is critical for brain protection and development. In vitro studies have shown protective properties against glutamate-induced cell death. This is believed to be due to a modification to the NMDA receptors or the preservation of BDNF concentrations. A human study found that 80mg of bioavailable Curcumin consumed daily resulted in about a 40% increase in circulating nitric oxide.
Curcumin with Piperine reportedly promotes organ health as this combination may allow Curcumin to increase the absorption of glutathione, which is known for its cellular health benefits in the liver. An in-vitro study suggests that this combination of compounds may support cellular health as well. Turmeric has traditionally been used to support joint stiffness and discomfort. Finally, one study on athletes found that a Curcumin and Piperine supplement significantly supported muscle recovery in athletes after a workout.

- Curcumin has weak oral bioavailability. This is partly due to its rapid metabolism and its low intestinal absorption rate. It is fat-soluble, so ingesting Curcumin on its own will not result in good absorption in the body. Absorption can be improved by pairing it with a fat source such as fish oil.
