AlphaCurcumin® Plus is a highly bioavailable curcumin complex with added Essential Turmeric oils, Bromelain and Quercetin.
Curcumin is ground from the root of the Curcuma longa L. plant (see picture below), a member of the ginger family which grows wild in the Himalayas and across South Asia. This yellow spice, also known as turmeric, plays a central role in ethnic cuisine in those areas, giving the traditional dishes of these regions their characteristic yellow colour. This spice has been a component of Ayurvedic medicinal systems of India, China, Tibet and the Middle East for over 2000 years.
It is also a powerful antioxidant, and overall it is regarded as one of nature's best protector nutrients and body cleansers, and is the subject of a great deal of scientific research.
The problem with Curcumin is that, not only is it not efficiently absorbed by the body, but you have to eat quite a bit of it to get the good effects.
The Really Healthy Company's AlphaCurcumin® Plus Curcumin Complex is a highly potent curcumin supplement with each capsule containing 250mg of BCM-95™, a form of curcumin extract that is many times more effective and absorbable than standard curcumin extracts due to the integration of specific essential oils steam-extracted from the turmeric rhizome. Also present in AlphaCurcumin is Bromelain and Quercetin, which enhance its overall anti-inflammatory effect, as well as AlphaBlend®, a proprietary blend of Klamath algae, enzymes and Bioperine® (black pepper extract) for further enhanced absorption. What is more, AlphaCurcumin contains 100% active ingredients, with no binders, fillers or any other excipient present.
BCM-95 also stays in the blood for 8-12 hours, much longer than standard curcumin extracts, making this formula one of the most potent curcumin complex currently available. This curcumin extract is 90% curcuminoids, with each capsule providing 225mg of curcuminoids.
