|Turmeric is a golden spice derived from the rhizome (root) of the Curcuma longa plant. It has a long history of use dating back more than 4,000 years. Turmeric is prized not only as a culinary spice (to give color and taste to food), but also as a component of the traditional health systems of India and China. In recent years, turmeric has become one of the most thoroughly researched plants in history. At last count, its properties and components were the subject of nearly 10,000(!) peer-reviewed articles in the NIH (National Institutes of Health) PubMed database.|
|Youtheory® Turmeric Extra Strength boldly features Curcumin C3 Complex®: the most scientifically-supported turmeric brand in the marketplace. Scientists have studied Curcumin C3 Complex® for decades to better understand its wide-ranging health benefits and the biological effects of curcuminoids inside the body. The name “C3 Complex” refers to the three (3) primary curcuminoids found in turmeric – curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bis-demethoxycurcumin. Curcumin C3 Complex® is patented for its unique composition profile that conserves the natural ratio (76:19:5) of these three curcuminoids, as found in Mother Nature.*|
|Curcuminoids are yellow pigments that give turmeric its vibrant color and are responsible for the vast majority of health benefits attributed to this “super spice.”* While regular turmeric is only 4% curcuminoids, Curcumin C3 Complex®, found in youtheory Turmeric Extra Stength, is more than 95% total curcuminoids. That’s a 20x amplification above and beyond what is typically found in nature. Hence, one pill of Youtheory® Turmeric Extra Strength provides the dosage equivalency of almost 10,000 mg (10 grams) of regular turmeric powder!
|“Regular turmeric has long been known to have poor bioavailability, requiring high doses to achieve desired blood levels. To overcome this issue and to help optimize absorption, we’ve combined our high-potency turmeric with powerful extracts of black pepper: nature’s bio-enhancer. Studies suggest that piperine (a key compound found in black pepper fruits) can boost blood levels of curcuminoids by nearly 2000%! This simple spice combination is so effective at potentiating turmeric that it’s become the standard by which all turmerics (and turmeric products) are measured.*|
|“We stand behind the science of Curcumin C3 Complex®. A very important distinction is that the combination of Curcumin C3 Complex® + black pepper has been shown to increase blood levels of free curcumin (the active curcuminoid). Other competitors rely on bioavailability studies that measure curcumin metabolites (the glucoronide and sulfated metabolites of curcumin). There is no published data on the efficacy of these minor curcuminoid metabolites, which are pharmacologically inactive.*|
