Turmeric only provides 2 to 5% curcumin per dose. Standard curcumin is poorly absorbed & requires large doses. To overcome this and boost absorption, some curcumin supplements combine standardized curcumin with piperine. But piperine can affect the metabolism of medications. CuraPro a high-potency formula, featuring a clinically studied, enhanced absorption curcumin, provides up to 500 times more curcumin per softgel than turmeric, and has a sustained retention time at significant levels in the bloodstream. Additionally, the turmerones from turmeric essential oil in CuraPro not only increase absorption of curcumin but have many of the same clinical effects as curcumin. In fact this curcumin is the only patented curcumin in the world with these two exceptional compounds together.
