Added black pepper forsuperior absorption
A major drawback in the use of Curcuminoids is that they simply do not absorb well into the body. To help with the absorption, recent research has identified a second natural substance that promotes curcuminoid absorption.

These extracts – also known as BioPerine® – have been added to our Turmeric3 to naturally increase the absorption of the important components, especially curcumin itself.
