Two hundred and fifty-six curcumin papers were published in the past year according to a search of the U.S. National Library of Medicine. "I frequently recommend turmeric supplements, and I believe whole turmeric is more effective than isolated curcumin for (healthy inflammatory function)... The bottom line that the therapeutic advantages of turmeric and curcumin are almost too numerous to list." Dr. Andrew Weil, MD For more information about Turmeric, please see Turmeric: The Ayurvedic Spice of Life by Prashanti de Jager. Shouldn't Turmeric have Black Pepper or Piperine to help absorption? Curcumin, the "good stuff" in turmeric, is very hard for the body to absorb. Black Pepper or Piperine are often added to increase absoprtion because it heats up the digestive system, but there are better alternatives. Our Turmeric Formula contains Ginger, which is "hotter" than Black Pepper. Shogaol, which is produced when Ginger is dried, has a Scoville Heat Unit rating of 160,000, compared to Black Pepper which is at 100,000. Additionally, Ginger does not irritate the digestive tract, as Black Pepper can. Finally, Ginger has been shown to have epigenetic properties whose benefits are only beginning to be understood. All in One! Turmeric parallels the actions of: glucosamine, chondroition and arnica.
