Curcumin has more health benefits than a whole medicine chest. Curcumin is the active compound in turmeric, a bright yellow, ancient spice and a traditional remedy that has been used for health, as well as for condiment and flavoring purposes, based on records dating back to more than 2000 years. Turmeric has a long history of use in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic systems of health. Toniks Curcumin has 19 times the curcumin content of the ground turmeric spice.
The limiting factor with curcumin is its poor bioavailability – with 40% to 75% of curcumin passing through the digestive tract unchanged in animal research. For this reason, Tonik’s Curcumin contains a special curcumin extract called BCM-95. In research, the bioavailability of curcumin from BCM-95 was found to be 8.2 times higher compared to normal curcumin.
