This is the whole plant form of Turmeric, containing a small amount of curcumin along with turmerones and the many other constituents that naturally exist in the rhizome. New Chapter's clean extraction practices make this is as close to fresh Turmeric as you could hope for in a supplement!
Produced with clean solvent methods including water and supercritical extraction, which is a solvent for oils using pressure to capture a wide spectrum of oil-soluble components. By utilizing these methods, New Chapter's end product contains a wide spectrum of both water and oil soluble components of the whole Turmeric. This is a concentrated version of the whole food!
Take as food: The paste is also delicious to cook with, making it a great "travel" spice... just squeeze a capsule into your stir-fry, soup, or curry. I like using a fork to poke a hole then squeeze carefully...it will stain your fingers and cutting boards.
These vegetarian capsules are a good way to get a clinical amount of Turmeric... into your daily routine... or as needed.
Turmeric is an ancient super food with a long history of use. We know turmeric as a spice in Indian food. Turmeric tea is also beloved in many cultures as the first line of defense for a cold or other achy situation.
Turmeric lends a great deal of support for inflammation and is a safe, food approach to help manage aches and pains.
No Black Pepper is needed!!The isolated component of Turmeric (curcumin) is not well-absorbed when taken out of the whole plant. Studies have shown that piperine from Black Pepper enhances the bio-availability of curcumin, the isolated form of Turmeric. Really the studies show piperine help with absorption of curcumin. However, New Chapter's product is the whole and naturally occurring form of Turmeric, which is well-absorbed and has been consumed as food for centuries.
