Research has established that one of the many medicinal properties of turmeric is to reduce excess iron from the body. This graph and photo demonstrate the powerful effect of turmeric (aka curcumin) in reducing stored iron from the cells. As turmeric/curcumin levels increased, iron levels decreased.
Researchers from this study concluded that “curcumin is a biologically active iron chelator," exceptional news for people with hemochromatosis and iron overload!
Despite turmeric’s promise of many health benefits, there is one major challenge to using turmeric medicinally. The challenge is how to get the turmeric into the cells of your body.
Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, tends to be poorly absorbed by our digestive system. I’ve seen estimates that place turmeric’s absorption at about 5% so you are not likely absorbing much from diet alone. Ordinary turmeric capsules, powders, pills, or teas, are only going to be used by your body a very small amount. Oral absorption of curcumin is generally poor due to its low solubility and instability in the intestinal environment.
Hemochromatosis Help’s Turmeric Capsules provides the patented BCM-95® brand of turmeric, a special form of turmeric with enhanced methods of absorption. Laboratory testing has shown BCM-95® greatly increases curcumin stability and significantly enhances oral absorption when compared to ordinary curcumin. To date it has been the subject of more than 21 published studies and has been researched worldwide for over 12 years.
This innovative product takes the naturally occurring essential oils from turmeric to synergistically enhance the absorption of the curcuminoids. This process significantly improves the absorption and lasting effects of the turmeric to provide the most benefit for the body! This 100% whole turmeric formula creatively uses the natural essential oils already found in pure turmeric to provide superior absorption that lasts up to 8 hours.
Suggested Use: 1 capsule twice daily with food
