Most of turmeric's healthful properties stem from curcumin, its primary active ingredient. This wonder compound is one of three curcuminoids in the spice (the others being bisdemethoxycurcumin and demethoxycurcumin) and has come under the microscope repeatedly owing to its therapeutic potential.
Curcuminoids, of course, are the vibrant orange pigments of turmeric which belong to a family of polyphenols comprising all bioflavonoids, flavans and flavanols. Though curcuminoids give turmeric its signature hue, they are notoriously poorly absorbed into the bloodstream.
Some estimates suggest that just 1-2% of ingested polyphenols in 95% curcuminoid extract is ever absorbed.
Since most turmeric supplements use a standardised 95% extract, the benefits of switching to Maximized Turmeric 46x are obvious.
CurcuWIN® delivers highly bioavailable curcuminoids in the same profile as is naturally found in turmeric. Using patented UltraSOL™ technology, CurcuWIN "increased relative absorption of total curcuminoids 46 times over standard curcumin and was significantly more bioavailable than other enhanced forms," as noted in the aforementioned study.
As well as CurcuWIN®, each capsule contains BioPerine® (black pepper extract) for added bioavailability and absorption. The body absorbs curcumin much more easily with the aid of this vital bioactive ingredient.
Maximized Turmeric 46x is supplied in tubs of 60 capsules with a recommended serving of 1 capsule per day. Capsules are free from gluten, dairy, soy and GMOs.
CurcuWIN Turmeric extract Curma longa Rhizome (Minimum 20% Curcuminoids), BioPerine Black Pepper Fruit (Piper nigrum). Other ingredients: povidone, vegetable cellulose (capsule), microcrystalline cellulose, silicon dioxide, vegetable magnesium stearate, stearic acid.
Q: What does the 46x mean?
A: 46x alludes to the greater bioavailability of the product, in comparison to standardized turmeric extracts. When tested in a double-blind placebo controlled study, CurcuWIN® – 500mg of which is in each capsule – was shown to deliver 46 times the number of curcuminoids into the bloodstream than an equivalent dosage of 95% standardized turmeric extract.
Q: What exactly are curcuminoids?
A: Curcuminoids are fat-soluble, polyphenolic pigments – in other words, they are what give turmeric (Curcuma Longa) its bright orange colour. Like other polyphenols, curcuminoids are strong antioxidants; they have played a substantial role in health care throughout the East for thousands of years.
Q: What are the benefits of turmeric?
A: The primary curcuminoids of turmeric – curcumin, demethyoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin – are widely famed for their antioxidant, anti-microbial, anti-mutagenic, anti-parasitic, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties.
