What is Turmeric?
Turmeric or Circuma longa is a type of ginger that has a number of healing properties. It is often used in as traditional and natural medication to treat aches and pains that over-the-counter pain medication is unable to alleviate. The dried root of the plant is ground down to a fine yellow powder that is often used in cooking.
Besides a natural pain killer, turmeric is also beneficial for diabetics, as an anticoagulant, anti-depressant and can also induce weight loss. In other words, besides alleviating pain, it can also make you feel good inside and out.
It also contains bioactive compounds that are known for their powerful medicinal properties. As an anti-inflammatory agent, it helps the body in keeping bacteria at bay and increased its anti-oxidant capacity as well. However, on its own, turmeric can do so much before being absorbed by the body. To enhance its effectiveness, it needs a boost that can allow it to remain in the body for longer and thus increase nutrient absorption at the same time. That is where BioPerine® comes into the picture.
What is BioPerine®?
BioPerine® is extracted from piperine, a black pepper fruit which promotes nutrient absorption when consumed. When it is mixed with turmeric, the result is a supplement that offers the best healing and properties compared to other spices. Piperine makes turmeric more ‘bio-available’ in the body which means that it allows the spice to saturate the body completely before its benefits are lost.
BioPerine® does this by triggering TRPV1. Also known as transient receptor potential vanilloid type-1, this agent is a natural pain killer. This is also why the supplement is recommended for arthritis patients and those who suffer from joint inflammation. BioPerine® is known for reducing otherwise incurable chronic pain within and outside the body while protecting the brain from degenerating.
