Optimal Curcumin is a highly bioavailable curcuminoid formulation. It contains a unique combination of three bioactive, health-promoting curcuminoids: curcumin, bisdemethoxycurcumin and desmethoxycurcumin, along with turmeric oil. The three curcuminoids are the strongest, most protective, and best-researched constituents of the turmeric root.
The crystalline structure of curcumin renders it difficult to absorb in the GI tract. According to researchers, “The potential health benefits of curcumin are limited by its poor solubility, low absorption from the gut, rapid metabolism and rapid systemic elimination.” For this reason, Optimal Curcumin is manufactured using a new process, which is an all-natural formulation that improves the absorption and delivery of curcumin. This process uses a proprietary blend of turmeric oil, sunflower lecithin, and vitamin E, without the use of potentially harmful surfactants. This delivery technology increases the absorption rate and reduces the absorption time for nutrients and may allow for superior effects through lower dosages.
Naturally occurring turmeric root powder contains only 5-7% curcumin, while the blend in Optimal Curcumin is formulated to contain 70% curcumin (as part of a total of 95% curcuminoids). Thus, this product provides a much higher concentration of the active compounds than would typically be obtainable from food alone.
