Turmeric is the spice that gives curry its yellow color.
It has been used in India for thousands of years as a spice and medicinal herb.
Recently, science has started to back up what the Indians have known for a long time... it really does contain compounds with medicinal properties.
These compounds are called curcuminoids, the most important of which is curcumin.
Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant.
Increase Absorption of Curcumin Dramatically- Regular curcumin is absorbed at approximately 5-10%, the balance remains in the gastrointestinal tract and is lost.Liposomalized curcumin is absorbed at substaintially higher rate.
What Are Liposomes? Liposomes refers to creating micro particles of the active material one wishes to coat with liposomes. This requires expensive equipment and considerable time to complete. These micro particles are then inserted into special fat soluble materials resembling micro bubbles just a few millionths of an inch in diameter which are capable of sliding through the gut lining without being digested. The "bubbles" are now in the blood stream and are offered to the cells of the body as needed. As with the gut wall, the cell wall loves liposomes because they are made up of similar material (phosphatydal choline, lecithin, phosphatydal serine, CLA, etc) and the nutrients are delivered directly into the cell while the liposomes are used by the cell wall or for other functions within the cell.A huge advance in both efficiency and effectiveness of supplemental nutrients!
