Because of its hydrophobic character, curcumin’s bioavailability is unfortunately quite low. Its quick breakdown in the liver and low absorption from the intestines result in its low level in the plasma.
In order to improve curcumin’s solubility, the manufacturers use piperine which increases its bioavailability up to 20 times. Curcumin’s absorption is also positively affected by fats present in diet (curcumin is soluble in fat). This means that it is worth to enrich your meal with e.g. coconut oil, avocado or olive oil when using the supplement.
Another important component is quercetin. The substance belongs to plant flavonoids and inhibits the activity of an enzyme responsible for curcumin inactivation. Natural quercetin sources are i.a. red wine grapes, capers, cabbage and bean.
What is turmeric root extract?
Turmeric root extract is powdered turmeric in reduced volume in order to achieve as high active curcuminoid concentration as possible.
Turmeric is a spice that gives dishes a characteristic yellow colour. However, apart from its culinary advantages, it is also valued for its great health-promoting potential, which is why it is sometimes called the “Queen of Spices”. The main active substance in turmeric root is curcumin, which has a strong anti-inflammatory effect. In turn, reducing inflammations helps to relieve pain and inhibit the development of cancer.
People who use turmeric extracts can notice an improvement in the parameters marking blood sugar levels and the condition of the cardiovascular system, which is visible in an optimised lipid profile, reduced hypertension, and enhanced blood flow. Curcumin also helps to inhibit DNA molecule damage and reduce oxidative stress. The advantages of curcumin can be experienced by people struggling with the symptoms of depression and anxiety disorders as well.
