Curcumin 500 with Bioperine®
- Features Curcumin C3 Complex®, a well-researched form of curcumin
- Includes Bioperine® to increase curcumin absorption
- Promotes antioxidant defence
Curcumin 500 with Bioperine® provides powerful antioxidant support to maintain good health. Bioperine® is a black pepper extract that contains the alkaloid piperine. Research reveals that it has the potential to enhance the bioavailability of curcumin, promoting its absorption. Curcumin supports the body’s natural antioxidant defence system. This action is associated with its beneficial effects, including promoting free radical scavenging abilities and increasing the activity of the antioxidant enzyme catalase. Curcumin C3 Complex® has been the subject of numerous scientific investigations. Most recently, it has demonstrated the potential to decrease the serum level of malonedialdehyde (MDA, a marker of lipid peroxidation), while increasing the level of reduced glutathione (GSH, an important endogenous antioxidant).
