Turmeric Curcumin with BioPerineby Stark Forde Health care products
While on the hunt for the best way
to look healthy and beautiful, we often rely on medications and cosmetic
surgeries. Other things also emerge like fat burners, blood thinning drugs,
acne creams, and supplements in addition to our everyday routines.
But in this article, we’ll be
focusing specifically on supplements.
Spices and herbs have been used for
their health benefits for centuries.
Whether that be in liquid form or
used in food, it remains a popular choice for the people who want to maintain a
well-balanced lifestyle. It also works on those who have health issues that
worry about the possible side effects of commercialized medicines. That’s why
natural remedies are so popular.
I’ll be discussing some things about
one natural remedy in particular, and that’s turmeric
curcumin with BioPerine. Most of us are familiar with the bitter yellow
spice, right? Many of us have it on our kitchen shelves. But did you know that
it’s also a popular supplement?
To start off, let's check these
So, we know at least that. But do we
know exactly what it does so well that it’s been extracted to be packed in a
Do we know the benefits of this
spice, as well as its potential and enhanced health benefits when paired with
Also, speaking of BioPerine, what
exactly makes it such a great combination when paired with turmeric curcumin?
Is it just for the sick and aging?
All of these questions will be
answered shortly, just keep on reading further to get some more info!
First things first, what is turmeric
curcumin? Let’s start this one off with turmeric.
Turmeric is a popular, native spice
found in India and can be found in many other countries in Asia. It typically has a bitter taste and it gives curry its
famous yellow tinge which is also why it is popular when making vegan dishes.
In medicine, specifically supplements in this case, the root of the turmeric is
Now for the curcumin in “turmeric
curcumin,” it is a bright yellow component that is found in some
This is also found in turmeric which
would explain its color.
It is a component in turmeric, which
helps in treating an array of different health-related problems. These health
issues include heartburn, inflammation, joint pain, headaches, bronchitis,
common colds, appetite issues, jaundice, liver problems, fevers, and even
in its natural form.
Curcumin also has antioxidant
properties. It is even speculated to possess cancer-fighting properties as well
as acne-fighting abilities.
There have also been some studies
suggesting that turmeric curcumin may be used to help manage diabetes. It can
treat colitis and stomach ulcers, viral infections, and possibly even the
common cold of the mental health world: depression.
Now, as great as the spice is and
its benefits, there are still some side effects that may occur. Just because it
is natural doesn’t mean that it’s faultless.
It’s not a one size fits all kind of
deal, either. Some people respond well to turmeric, others who are more
sensitive to the components of the spice may find themselves shocked at
experiencing any side effects!
Thankfully, the common side effects
aren’t life-threatening and nowhere near as harmful as the side effects found
in synthetic medicine.
Sure, painkillers may work quicker
at a higher potency and are more well-regulated than supplements. However, when
you consider the long-term effects of these types of drugs in our bodies, is it
worth it? Switch over to natural remedies and your arteries will thank you.
These are two of the most common
side effects due to turmeric being known to stimulate bowel movements. This
stimulation is a positive aspect for people who need to use it as an enema for
inflammatory bowel disease.
However, for people with sensitive
stomachs, this is not a welcomed effect. If you are prone to stomach ulcers,
it’s best to keep the dosage below the maximum recommended dose which is 1500
mg. That also goes for pregnant women, as well. Beyond this, expect the side
effects to be much apparent.
As sad as it sounds, there is such
thing as “too much of a good thing.” And we know that turmeric curcumin is very
good, though it can cause some scary problems if you take too much of it!
The maximum dosage of turmeric
curcumin is 1500 mg a day. If a person takes a dose that is higher than
this, you can bet on an unpleasant trip to the bathroom.
Taking more than the maximum mg a
day will also cause dizziness and nausea. Worst of all, your heart, the organ
that you should be protecting, is at risk because you go beyond the 1500 mg.
You will experience palpitations leading to insomnia and possibly an
Drug interactions with popular pain-relieving
medicines can be dangerous to your health when being taken alongside turmeric
supplements. Just think of painkillers, blood thinners, and drugs used for the
management of diabetes.
That’s why consultation with a
physician should always be considered before you take this or any supplement
for that matter.
First of all, what is this weird
science word? Bioavailability is the degree and rate at which a substance such
as a drug, which is turmeric curcumin in this case, is taken in my a living
organism. One of the biggest issue with turmeric curcumin is that without
BioPerine, it pretty much flops.
Let me explain: turmeric curcumin
naturally has very low bioavailability.
This means that a small percentage
is actually absorbed by our bodies when we consume it. It is why you’d find
yourself taking more capsules of a supplement that doesn’t have the added
So, let’s talk about why BioPerine
is related to Turmeric Curcumin.
BioPerine is a standardized peperine
composition that is taken from black pepper extract. Black pepper, also lovingly nicknamed “The King of Spices”
like turmeric, is also a native spice of India. It can be found all over the
world as well.
So, why is BioPerine so often
combined with turmeric curcumin? This is because BioPerine is known for its
That is just another fancy name used
to describe its effect on helping our bodies with the absorption of nutrients
and vitamins from the intestine. It also explains why it's popular as a
treatment for people who possess conditions that impedes the full absorption of
nutrients and causes malnutrition.
BioPerine is also used in addition
to many supplements to enhance the absorption of the main extract of the
Now, the reason why we are focusing
on the BioPerine and turmeric curcumin pairing is because it offers the most
healing benefits and preventive aspects.
Does Piperine Work?
Piperine assists our bodies in the
absorption of the turmeric extract to experience the benefits that a turmeric
supplement will give us.
This will make the reduced
inflammation, lessened pain, and skin-clearing benefits to a whole new
level. It is more effective in this aspect than turmeric curcumin without the
When paired with BioPerine, the
bioavailability of turmeric curcumin increases by a staggering 100%!
It is also known to trigger the
transient receptor potential vanilloid type-1. It is a fancy-schmancy term to
describe the effect on the body that reduces the reception of internal and
This is evident in the usage of this
in topical creams. It is also why you see a lot of beauty shops and brands
promoting this stuff.
You thought the benefits that
Turmeric Curcumin bring are more on physical pain, right? I also thought it has
no effect on the mental and emotional aspect before I looked more into some
Now, if you’re not suffering from
some chronic pain or injury, BioPerine can still work wonders in your health.
Take cigarette smokers, for instance.
According to some research, black
pepper tends to curb a smoker’s craving for tobacco.
So, you don’t need to have a major
injury, life-threatening disease or depression to need turmeric curcumin with
BioPerine supplement. Why? It is because it aid many health-related problems
regardless of the severity.
Turmeric curcumin with BioPerine is not
an anti-depressant. There is no research to claim that this, in any way,
“cures” mental illness such as depression, either.
However, there is research
suggesting that the mood-stabilizing effects can actually improve a depressed
person’s overall well-being. Take note, again, that there are still many
negative drug interactions with turmeric curcumin with BioPerine.
If a person is taking certain
medications used as a treatment for depression, there is still the risk of
possibly aggravating symptoms.
So, if you are one of the millions
of people in the world who are looking for a natural way of dealing with your
diagnosis, then perhaps a supplement like this can help you out! Again, always
consult your physician and therapist first!
I hope that this has helped in
informing you about the turmeric
curcumin, where it's from, what it does, its
benefits and possible adverse side effects, and why it’s a popular herbal
choice for many.
Now, you also know that it’s not just
for people with joint pains or a way to manage diseases like diabetes or
ulcers. Also, an understanding of why turmeric curcumin is often best paired
Given the information that you just
read above, I bet that you’re relieved to know that there is a more affordable
and less dangerous way of pain management. We’ll take over-the-counter
painkillers out of the picture!
