Turmeric C3 with BioPerine
By Ernesta Stripeikaite
Why it is important to take turmeric with black pepper
The main issue with turmeric
Turmeric and especially the active curcuminoids have received a lot of public attention recently for their many health benefits. Research papers keep showing that turmeric has incredible antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects that can help reduce the risk of many chronic illnesses and improve wellbeing.
The main difficulty when supplementing with turmeric has been its low bioavailability. The active components get metabolised quickly by the liver and very insignificant amounts reach the blood. However, this issue can be resolved by adding black pepper extract to turmeric.
How black pepper can help
Black pepper extract BioPerine, used in our new innovative turmeric curcumin supplement, is the only product sourced out of piperine to obtain a patented status for its ability to increase the bioavailability of nutritional compounds. Moreover, it is the only scientifically proven safe and effective black pepper extract.
Studies have shown that BioPerine increases the bioavailability of curcumin significantly, as displayed in the graph below. As you can see, a significantly higher amount of curcumin is found in the blood when BioPerine is added, compared to the curcumin alone.
• There are three possible mechanisms for BioPerine’s action. It promotes the absorption of curcumin by:
• increasing blood flow to the gastrointestinal tract, where the absorption happens
• increasing emulsifying content of the gut to improve the solubility of the compounds
• increasing active nutrient transport across the intestinal walls and in the blood.
Synergy in whole foods
Additionally, besides the main curcuminoids, turmeric contains many other known and unknown phytochemicals, which all work in synergy, assisting the effectiveness and absorption of each other. With this in mind we have added pure turmeric powder to the supplement to further enhance the healing qualities of the supplement.
The bigger picture
To help your body heal and maintain health, make sure to also get plenty of nutrients from your food. Focus on wholesome single ingredient foods, source local, organic and seasonal produce whenever possible. Grass-fed meat and dairy and wild-caught fish are far superior to the conventional varieties and will provide you with anti-inflammatory compounds. Also do not forget to include movement daily, whether it be walking, dancing, yoga, running, gym workouts or any other sport you enjoy. Not only will your body appreciate this, but also your mind. And finally, mindfulness practice is the icing on the (healthy) cake as the outlook towards life has been shown to also affect your physiology.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
