Are you using curcumin, but feel no effects?
That may be because it has no turmerones!
Turmerones are the major part of turmeric essential oils, which are found in the roots of the turmeric plant. Similar to curcumin, they are one of the active molecules in turmeric.
- Curcumin is not easily absorbed by the body.
Turmerones are important because they allow your body to absorb curcumin.
- Curcmin cannot travel easily to its site of action in the body.
Turmerones are responsible for transporting curcumin to your cells to improve your health.
Turmerones, in addition to curcumin, have potent anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, which are essential to your health.
A well studied form of curcumin combined with turmerones is marketed under the name BCM-95®. BCM-95® is a highly absorbable form of curcumin. It is present in supplements such as Curaphen® and CuraMed®.
Be sure to check your turmeric or curcumin supplements for either turmerones or BCM-95®.
