Premium Standardized Turmeric 95% Curcuminoids (much better than turmeric root powder!), Includes Black Pepper In The Form Of Bioperine (Much Better For Absorption!), Increased Bioavailability 2,000%, 1000mg Per Serving, 60 Capsules
Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric and responsible for its golden color, but it is not readily absorbed by the body. Once ingested, most of the curcumin gets quickly metabolized before it can get absorbed. Piperine (the heat in black pepper) helps make curcumin more bio-available as it temporarily slows the liver from removing it from the blood.
