What They Don’t Tell You About Curcumin

You’ve probably heard a lot about curcumin in the last couple of years. Some claim it’s the answer to everything from cancer to Alzheimer’s disease. They point to hundreds of positive studies. But there’s one little detail these cheerleaders usually leave out…

Your body has an awful time absorbing curcumin.

Turmeric is the spice richest in curcumin. But you may absorb as little as 5% of the curcumin in an ordinary supplement. In other words, you spend a lot of money for very little benefit.

But there’s an easy way to get more active curcumin into your body. Here’s what you should know…

Turmeric’s Benefits Aren’t a Miracle… They’re Science

Recent curcumin studies have created quite a stir. Here are just a few of the benefits they’ve revealed about curcumin.  It…

  • Supports healthy blood sugar and blood pressure levels
  • Promotes clear arteries for normalized blood flow
  • Stimulates better mood and working memory improvements
  • Encourages healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • Promotes less joint pain and stiffness.

I could point to dozens of other ways curcumin boosts your health – from better digestion… to eye and skin health… to exercise recovery. And so much more.

Curcumin works by blocking inflammation triggers.

You see, your body faces two kinds of inflammation: acute and chronic. Acute inflammation happens when you’re injured.

You may cut your hand or twist your ankle. The injured area quickly turns red and swells. This is caused by defensive molecules that begin repairs. It’s normal and natural.

But a poor diet, air pollution, stress, and many other factors cause low-level, chronic inflammation. It’s as if your body thinks it’s been injured everywhere… but just a little bit. That triggers release of small amounts of the same defensive agents your body uses to fight a cut or sprain.

When this low-level defense goes on and on, it leads to damage. And almost every health problem you can imagine. Heart trouble… sore, aching joints… abnormal cell division… even memory problems.

Curcumin can block the triggers that cause this low-level response. And thus defend against the damage they cause.

Well it can if you can absorb it. That’s why you need to know this little secret.

Making Curcumin Available – and Multiplying Its Power

Scientists working at St. John’s University discovered there’s an herb that boosts curcumin absorption. And not by just a little. By as much as 2,000%!

It’s called piperine. Combine it with turmeric, and you can absorb a lot more curcumin… and get the full benefit. And there’s only one form of piperine that’s been granted a patent for its ability to boost nutrient absorption.

It’s called BioPerine® – and it’s one reason Curcumin Triple Burn is different from ordinary turmeric supplements.

Anti-aging expert Dr. Al Sears formulated Curcumin Triple Burn to give your body the strongest defenses possible. That’s why he added three more potent herbs to back up curcumin’s anti-irritant action.

Ginger root inhibits a molecule called Nuclear Factor-kappa beta (NF- kB). NF-kB helps control more than 400 genes linked to systemic irritation. That’s why Dr. Sears saw ginger as a perfect complement to curcumin.

He also added galangal – a little-known anti-microbial herb – and holy basil.

Holy basil is an adaptogen, an herb that helps your body deal with stress. Research shows it helps ease levels of cortisol, your body’s main stress hormone. Less stress, less cortisol, less systemic irritation.

Finally: A Turmeric Supplement That Really Works

Dr. Sears has spent decades searching for herbal solutions in the most inaccessible places on Earth. And he’s poured all his years of experience and expertise into Curcumin Triple Burn.

This unique formula features a full 1,000 mg of turmeric root… BioPerine® for maximum absorbability… and three herbal “boosters” to enhance curcumin’s effectiveness. There’s simply nothing else like it available anywhere.

You can maximize your defenses against the low-level irritation that leads to joint pain, heart trouble, and a host of other health issues. Simply by maximizing the potency of your turmeric supplement.

Stress, air pollution, toxins, and all the other irritants out there never take a rest. Your defenses shouldn’t, either.

Do what I do – and choose the maximum defenses of Curcumin Triple Burn.
