BioPerine Considered Key in Increasing Bioavailability of Turmeric


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/02/2015 -- Turmeric is one of the most widely used medicinal spices today, commonly used by arthritis sufferers. However, it is known to have low bioavailability, meaning it is difficult for the body to absorb in useful quantities. One of most popular ingredients believed to increase bioavailability is BioPerine.

"Many experts believe that BioPerine can increase nutrient absorption by inhibiting the digestive enzymes in the intestine," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

Research shows that the presence of BioPerine can increase nutrient absorption by 1000 times. This black pepper extract, otherwise known as piperine, has been used by thousands of international herbal companies in increasing the bioavailability of their turmeric supplements.

The Journal of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine published a study that found the effects of BioPerine to increase curcumin bioavailability may be taking place in the intestine. Curcumin is the active ingredient found in turmeric. Bio-enhancement otherwise known as nutrient absorption pertains to the ability of the black pepper extract to increase the body's capacity to absorb nutrients such as coenzyme Q, beta-carotene, selenium, and vitamin C.

"Nutrient malabsorption can be a serious problem and it is something that should not be overlooked. Many individuals who are suffering from medical conditions that cause malabsorption may be able to use supplements that contain BioPerine for increased absorption," added O'Sullivan.

Due to the efficacy of BioPerine in increasing the bioavailability of turmeric, more and more sufferers of arthritis are making well-informed and wise choices in choosing curcumin supplements. Those who want to make the most out of the best benefits of the natural ingredient choose supplements that have BioPerine in them.

Curcumin supplements are becoming increasingly popular, with thousands of arthritis sufferers using these supplements to achieve pain relief. Experts suggest that patients should take time in finding a product that contains the black pepper extract for maximum benefit
