To significantly enhance curcumin’s naturally poor bioavailability, Alkaline Method™ combined turmeric extract (95% curcuminoids) with BioPerine®, a patented black pepper extract and natural bio-enhancer, and added a time-release delivery method. The antioxidant, cell- protective, and immunomodulatory properties of curcumin have interested researchers for years. The therapeutic effectiveness of curcumin is limited due to its poor absorption from the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, rapid metabolism, and rapid systemic elimination. Instead of increasing the dose, Super Curcumin is formulated to increase the amount of curcumin absorbed and bioavailable. It combines turmeric rhizome extract (95% curcuminoids) with BioPerine, a patented extract of piperine from black pepper fruit. BioPerine has GRAS (generally recognized as safe) status and is a clinically validated bio-absorption enhancer. It works by optimizing the body’s natural thermogenic activity, thereby selectively providing a more efficient mode of nutrient transportation into the blood. Piperine improves the bioavailability of curcumin both in preclinical studies and in studies on human volunteers. At a dose of 2 g curcumin alone, serum levels were either undetectable or very low in human volunteers. But, curcumin administered with piperine produced much higher serum concentrations from 0.25 – one hour after ingestion with a 2000% increase in bioavailability. In animals, co-administration with piperine significantly increased time to maximum serum concentration, while elimination half-life and clearance were significantly decreased. Combining BioPerine with curcumin results in significantly increased utilization of smaller quantities for optimal clinical outcomes. But Super Curcumin doesn’t stop there. It also employs a patented, controlled-release delivery technology that prolongs GI transit time and increases curcumin’s bioavailability up to 30% over standard delivery systems. Curcumin is a phenolic phytochemical purified from turmeric (Curcuma longa)—an herb extensively used in both Chinese and Ayurvedic herbology to relieve a variety of complaints. Historically, turmeric has been used for its effect on smooth muscle function and its ability to improve digestion. More recently, the cell-protecting and immunomodulatory properties of curcumin have become areas of great interest to the scientific community.
