Turmeric root has long been prized in Asian medicine.
The term “curcumin” refers to turmeric’s trio of yellow-orange “curcuminoid” compounds.
Lab and preliminary clinical studies confirm that curcumin supports immune and brain health in unique and powerful ways.
However, curcumin is not well-absorbed after it’s been extracted from turmeric ... unless it’s accompanied by turmeric volatile (essential) oils.
Fortunately, our curcumin supplement includes the full spectrum of turmeric volatile oils.
Recent research shows that these essential oils also enhance the benefits of curcumin and provide their own ... yet other curcumin supplements rarely include any.
Clinical studies show that our curcumin is absorbed six to seven times better than the curcumin in conventional supplements (Antony B et al. 2012).
This huge absorption advantage means that one 500mg serving (two softgel capsules) of Vital Choice Curcumin is equivalent to about 3,000mg of a typical 95% curcumin supplement.
To further bolster the benefits of our premium turmeric extract, we deliver it in a healthy dose of omega-3-rich Vital Choice Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon Oil.
Folk history and modern research
Turmeric grows wild in the forests of South and Southeast Asia, and is cultivated for culinary and medicinal use.
It's also a key ingredient in the yellow-orange curry spice blends used in many Indian, Persian, Thai, Chinese, and Indonesian dishes.
The ancient Indian medicine tradition known as Ayurveda has long featured turmeric in healing.
Together with modern epidemiological evidence from India, where turmeric root and turmeric-rich curries are dietary staples, that ancient tradition has triggered extensive, promising research into its health-promoting properties.
Among other effects, curcumin appears to exert beneficial effects on gene switches affecting stress- and aging-related degenerative processes.
