Turmeric is a yellow root, which belongs to the ginger family and originates from tropical areas in Southeast Asia and India. It has been used there for a very long time as a versatile agricultural and medicinal plant. Turmeric is becoming more and more popular in Europe which is why we are happy to introduce you to our new turmeric and piperin capsules.
Curcumin is probably the most known ingredient in turmeric. Belonging to the so-called curcuminoids, which give turmeric its typical yellow tone, this bioactive secondary plant substance scores with anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory properties. For this reason, preparations containing curcumin are often used for digestive problems or inflammations.
In order to work to it’s full potential, turmeric needs the assistance of another natural spice.
Piperine - a special extract of black pepper is known to significantly improve the bioavailability of turmeric. This synergetic effect is further supported through the other added ingredients in our turmeric capsules.
Aside from turmeric and piperine, we have added other substances that make the capsules indispensable. Papain, an enzyme extracted from the seeds and the green skin of papayas helps to improve the uptake of curcumin. Barley fibre and alfalfa further support this process. Alfalfa is a popular sprout with a high nutrient content, which makes every immune system happy.
