Curcumin has already been used in Asian natural medicine for several thousand years. In the meantime, there are more than 3,000 studies on the effects of curcumin. Curcumin Extrakt 45 has up to 40 times higher bioavailability than standard forms of curcumin.
Why is the Turmeric root more than just a spice?
Curcuma (Curcuma longa), also known as Turmeric root, belongs to the ginger family and is native to India and Southeast Asia. Many people are sure to be familiar with Tumeric from its use in the production of spice curry and as a natural colourant. Beyond that, Curcuma has been used in Indonesia (Ayurveda) and India for millennia. The most important ingredients contained are curcumin, other curcuminoids and tetrahydro-curcuminoids, which belong to the secondary plant compounds of phenols.
The bioavailability of curcumin is a problem.
However, the benefits of curcumin could not be fully utilised because the human body can only absorb a small amount of natural curcumin. Or, to put it in other words: the curcumin’s bioavailability through the intestine is very low. This is due to the fact that curcumin is fat-soluble, and therefore, it gets absorbed poorly in the aqueous environment of the intestine. Thus, 90% of the curcumin is excreted again. This can be seen if you look at a person’s intestines who has previously consumed curcumin: it is dyed yellow- a sign that the curcumin does not reach the metabolism, or only to a small extent. Until now, curcumin was mainly combined with piperine to improve its bioavailability. As a result, the blood concentration increases, but that only lasts one hour, and then it quickly drops to the original level. This explains why the sustainable absorption of curcumin can not be achieved with the substance piperine, which is irritating to the mucous membrane.
Curcumin capsules Dr Wolz: 45 times better bioavailability!
With Curcumin Extrakt 45 from Dr Wolz, we have succeeded in increasing the bioavailability of curcumin significantly. By providing the body with as much curcumin as possible, its benefits can be fully utilised. The bioavailability of Curcumin Extrakt 45 capsules from Dr Wolz is up to 40 times higher than that of pure curcumin powder or conventional preparations! How is that possible?
The fat-soluble (lipophilic) curcumin molecules are embedded in a ring of glucose molecules (a type of sugar, the so-called cyclodextrin) so that it results in a hydrophilic (water-loving) exterior and a lipophilic (fat-friendly) cavity inside. The curcumin molecule remains in this cavity until it reaches the intestine. There it is transported by the cyclodextrin molecules to the intestinal wall, where it can be absorbed individually, while the cyclodextrin is broken down and excreted.
Scientifically proven – Curcumin extract 45
The high bioavailability of curcumin has also been proven scientifically. During the test, the test persons were given normal curcumin once, as well as three different curcumin preparations of which the manufacturers claim that the bioavailability is particularly high – including Curcumin Extrakt 45 from Dr Wolz. The result: Curumin Extrakt 45 from Dr Wolz was absorbed over 40 times better than the pure curcumin powder! Curcumin Extrakt 45 from Dr Wolz provides our body with the therapeutic potential of curcumin to a much greater extent than previously available curcumin products.
