Studies Show Turmeric Supplements May Be Absorbed 1000 Times Better with BioPerine


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/29/2014 -- Natural treatment options are becoming increasingly popular nowadays and turmeric is one of the widely used ingredients for supplements. Turmeric has been known for its powerful health benefits and many people use it for a wide variety of medicinal purposes.

Although many people incorporate turmeric with their meals, it doesn't typically give a significant enough dose to receive the therapeutic benefits of the ancient spice. Turmeric is not easily absorbed by the body, but this should not deter people from using the healing spice.

“Turmeric has low levels of bioavailability, meaning it is difficult for the body to absorb. BioPerine significantly helps make the spice more bioavailable. Experts believe that this takes place due to the black pepper extract’s capacity to inhibit intestinal digestive enzymes,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

According to studies, turmeric may be absorbed as much as 1000 times better with BioPerine. This black pepper extract, also called piperine, is widely known for its capacity to increase absorption of nutrients in the body.

An article in the Journal of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine stated that BioPerine’s effect on absorption is known to be taking place in the intestine. This ability to increase nutrient absorption is also known as “bio-enhancement” and it refers to the black pepper extract’s capacity to increase absorption of nutrients such as selenium, beta-carotene, vitamin A, coenzyme Q, and vitamin C.

“Those who are suffering from medical conditions that hinder nutrient absorption in the body can benefit from BioPerine. Arthritis sufferers who experience malabsorption should consider choosing turmeric supplements that contain BioPerine,” added O’Sullivan.

Turmeric has been widely available today through curcumin supplements. These supplements contain an extract of the active ingredient in turmeric also known as curcumin that offers multiple health benefits.

Trials conducted to test turmeric and BioPerine have involved both humans and laboratory animals. In one study, the bioavailability of curcumin when administered together with BioPerine increased by 2000%.
