Because we are water-based, it presents a problem when plant-based bioactives are not water-soluble.
Curcumin is the primary active molecule in turmeric root. It is a polyphenol, which acts as a powerful antioxidant.
But the problem is that curcumin does not dissolve in water. It is a very unstable substance, and the body quickly eliminates it.
Therefore it has very low bioavailability. With typical turmeric supplements, just a tiny amount reaches the bloodstream. So the need arises to be able to bond curcumin molecules with carriers that serve as a vehicle to carry this active ingredient to the cells and deliver the contents without degradation or elimination.
The particle size is also vital for the compound to be bioavailable as the smaller particles allow for easier transportation and utilization in the microscopic cells of our bodies.
Easy to Absorb for Full Benefits
With all of this in mind, Young Living knew they had to make sure their turmeric extract is easy for the body to absorb so that we can enjoy the full benefits it will provide.
The turmeric extract in the Golden Turmeric supplement is superior to standard extracts for three reasons.
First of all, the particle size is reduced to a tiny molecule, enabling easier absorption.
Secondly, a plant-based colloidal matrix encloses the non-water-soluble active ingredients, so they mix easily with water.
And finally, the few commercial water-soluble turmeric extract products on the market are emulsified with synthetic polymers such as polysorbates. Young Living’s Golden Turmeric supplement ingredients are entirely plant-based and free from ingredients that contain GMOs. (Genetically modified organisms.)
A question people may ask about Golden Turmeric is, “Where is the black pepper?” Also, “Isn’t it necessary for turmeric products to have black pepper in combination to absorb curcuminoids?”
The answer is not a simple yes or no.
Black pepper extract does improve the bioavailability of curcumin, but it is not the only way.
Other novel technologies can enhance bioavailability, which is the case with the ingredients used in Golden Turmeric.
The Golden Turmeric supplement is 24 times more bioavailable than most turmeric products on the market because your body can absorb the active compounds.
Research studies have found that your body absorbs the same amount of curcuminoids from just 300 mg of Golden Turmeric as it does from 1,926 mg of standard turmeric.*
So what are the four ways it supports your body?
Clinical research shows:
- Golden Turmeric supports the body’s natural response to inﬂammation.*
- It helps support joint health and mobility.*
- It supports recovery after physical exertion.*
- And it supports a healthy immune response.*
The Golden Turmeric supplement also contains Boswellia resin extract, commonly known as Indian Frankincense and Ginger root extract. These ingredients work synergistically to achieve these health benefits.
Infused with Essential Oil
Of course, this incredible supplement is also infused with Lime VitalityTM essential oil. Lime is a favorite citrus oil that adds a light, citrus taste to Golden Turmeric. (Learn more about Young Living’s exclusive Vitality line of essential oils.)
All of the ingredients in Young Living’s Golden Turmeric supplement are gluten-free, and the formula is also soy-free and milk-free.
There are no artificial flavors, no artificial colors, no artificial preservatives, and no artificial sweeteners.
