You have probably heard a lot the last years about the benefits of turmeric and curcumin thanks to recent, highly-publicized studies that highlight how beneficial they are when it comes to digestion, arthritis pain, immunity, migraines and much more!
And you might have been confused because you cannot decide which would provide you more benefits and what to take.
Are turmeric and curcumin the same thing? Which one is better to take as a supplement?
Turmeric is a plant scientifically known as Curcuma longa. When most people refer to turmeric, they are referring to the spice which is made by grinding up turmeric root, especially used in Indian cooking and herbal tonics. The resulting powder has a bright yellow-orange color and a peppery, somewhat bitter flavor.
Curcumin is a compound that is naturally found within the turmeric plant’s roots. Scientific examination of turmeric has shown that its impressive health benefits of turmeric are due to the presence of this compound called curcumin and other “curcuminoids”.
So, if curcumin could be found in turmeric, does it matter which one you take? Is one better than the other? Can you just eat turmeric straight to get the benefits of curcumin?
Unfortunately, no. Curcumin only makes up about 2-5% of turmeric powder, so if you eat turmeric as a whole spice, you’re only getting a tiny portion of curcumin. However, in turmeric extracts, the concentration of these is often increased to as high as 95%.
Our Turmeric Supplement consists of 1500 mg pure 95% Curcuminoids extract per serving. In our Turmeric formula you could also find 15 mg Bioperine® and 300 mg of our anti-inflammatory blend (ginger, rosemary, cinnamon, feverfew). No useless materials in “Others ingredients” such us magnesium stearate, rice flour concentrate and silicon dioxide.
With absolute composition of 95% Curcuminoids, our turmeric extract capsules are about 19x stronger than other brands.
