How to choose a good quality turmeric or turmeric root extract?
As the world's largest supplier of turmeric raw materials, India occupies a leading position in the market. Turmeric is one of the traditional medicinal materials of India, not only the cultivation technology is mature and the environment is suitable.
The main active ingredient in turmeric root extract is known as curcumin. Numerous scientific kinds of literature at home and abroad have shown that turmeric has significant effects in terms of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
However, despite the many health benefits of curcumin on the human body, its bioavailability is very low after oral administration, so major manufacturers have tried their best to improve the absorption of curcumin in the human body.
In fact, in the natural turmeric root, there are turmeric ketones that can help the human body absorb curcumin. As an additional ingredient in turmeric root, turmeric is often overlooked by the public and is easily lost during the extraction process. Turmeric can inhibit the P-glycoprotein in the small intestine and prevent curcumin from being excreted as exogenous substances by the body, thereby improving the bioavailability of curcumin in the human body.
