Organic India's Turmeric Formula has been newly improved! Read on to discover more about how we’ve made a good thing even better.
- Our organic whole herb Turmeric is grown on small family farms using regenerative agriculture practices, carefully harvested and minimally processed to deliver all of the wisdom and nutrition of the whole herb. Turmeric has traditionally been used as a liver tonic, to support digestive function, heart health, a healthy immune response, and of course joint and muscle health.
- Adding organic Turmeric extract (standardized to 90% curcuminoids) ensures an efficacious dose of the well-studied compound curcumin.
- Finally, we’ve added organic whole herb Trikatu (ginger, long pepper, and black pepper) to improve bioavailability of the formula. Read on to learn more about why we swapped out ginger for this ancient Ayurvedic formula.
You aren’t what you eat, you are what you absorb!
You’ve probably heard that turmeric is an excellent source of curcumin, a well-studied phytochemical that plays a key role in the wide range of benefits ascribed to turmeric. Here’s the catch: curcumin is notoriously difficult to absorb!
Ginger has always been included in our Turmeric Formula because it supports digestive function, thereby increasing the bioavailability of curcumin. Our newly improved Turmeric Formula now contains trikatu: three “helper” herbs that assist your body in absorbing curcumin!
Trikatu (equal parts ginger, black pepper, and long pepper) is an ancient Ayurvedic formula known to support digestion and metabolism. Ginger lends digestive support, while black pepper and long pepper deliver a whole herb form of piperine. Piperine has been studied for its support of nutrient assimilation, specifically promoting the bioavailability of the curcuminoids in turmeric, tada!
In fact, research shows that piperine significantly increases the absorption of curcumin, compared to taking curcumin alone!
In the Ayurvedic tradition, trikatu is used to stimulate "agni", or digestive "fire," making it the perfect addition to our improved Turmeric Formula. We believe that by replacing ginger with trikatu, our Turmeric Formula is now better than ever (we still love you, ginger)!
