100% Certified Organic and Independently Tested Turmeric Capsules With Black Pepper
Our most popular product, Organic Turmeric Capsules PLUS was the first turmeric powder formulation with ginger and black pepper in Australia – that’s right, we started it! We chose this combination because of traditional Ayurvedic knowledge, an inspiration which is firmly backed up by scientific research. Trikatu is an Ayurvedic formulation which contains black pepper and ginger as well as turmeric, and this was our main starting point when developing a new turmeric product. The main benefit of Trikatu is that it improves the absoption of foods and medicines. The most up-to-date scientific research of today supports this approach, as we now know that the active constituents in ginger and black pepper increase the bioavailability of other substances (including the curcumin in turmeric).
How much curcumin is in our turmeric capsules with black pepper? We love this question, and the short answer is that our turmeric is always between 3-5% curcumin by weight. So in every capsule, there’s at least 18.7mg of curcumin. This isn’t a particularly high dose of curcumin in and of itself, however our curcumin is extremely bioavailable. Unlike other turmeric products, we use the whole food. Studies show that tumerone and the other essential oil components of turmeric vastly improve the absorbability of curcumin, and in addition to curcumin, whole food turmeric also contains other bioactive constituents such as zingerene, cineole, eugenol, limonene, borneol, bornanol and p-coumaric acid. What this means is that you still get the effectiveness of curcumin without needing to take such a high dose.
What really convinces us, however, is the fact that our customers take our product and have a good therapeutic response to it. Our capsules are high in naturally occurring, bioavailable curcumin. We don’t sell an extract because the benefits of whole foods are too good to pass up.
Black pepper has now reached celebrity-status for its ability to increase the absorption of turmeric. This is because black pepper contains piperine, which is a p-450 enzyme blocker in the gastrointestinal tract and liver. When these enzymes are blocked, it means that the biological activity of other substances, such as curcumin, is increased. One of the main reasons we add black pepper and ginger is that this is a traditional, Ayurvedic method from India of taking turmeric. Research on the p-450 enzymes has further indicated that there is an amazing synergy between these two spices, which backs up knowledge that has been applied for thousands of years. For us, this is the best of both worlds. Modern science respecting and validating ancient wisdom inspires us.
