Curcumin Plus is a cutting edge curcumin (from turmeric) supplement. Curcumin is one of nature’s most incredible ingredients. One of the best sources of information is the Linus Pauline Institute through the University of Oregon.

Curcumin has low bioavailability….until now
The Linus Pauline Institute information acknowledges the biggest problem with curcumin: It has low bioavailability. The main reason is curcumin is poorly soluble in water. If you stir a teaspoon of standard curcumin powder to a glass of water, most of the curcumin separates from the water. To be well absorbed in our gut the curcumin needs to be soluble in water.
BioSOLVE® is the first patented water soluble curcumin extract. If you get a teaspoon of BioSOLVE and mix it into a glass of water it will rapidly dissolve. This means your gut can absorb the curcumin. This also means we no longer have to add piperine (black pepper extract) to enhance absorption. This is a bonus for sensitive stomachs as piperine can irritate the stomach.
Oxifend® OPC extract
This is the same extract we recently added to Cell-X. We include Oxifend® OPC in Curcumin Plus to significantly increase the antioxidant capacity. OPC is one of the most potent free radical scavengers helping to protect cells from oxidative (free radical) damage. This is widely accepted as the dominant cause of premature cell aging and damage. If we protect cells, we also protect the tissue those cells comprised. Additionally OPC has a strong effect on the immune system especially in helping regulate inflammatory processes.
Caution: Do not use Curcumin if taking warfarin or similar anti-coagulant medications without advice from your prescribing medical doctor. Adult use only.
