Curcumin is the principal curcuminoid of the popular Indian spice turmeric, which is a member of the ginger family (Zingiberaceae). urcuminoids, which also include desmethoxycurcumin and bis-desmethoxycurcumin, are natural phenols that are responsible for the yellow color of turmeric.
While turmeric is most commonly associated with the bright yellow spice, this flavorful root has been used as condiment, textile dye and health aid for thousands of years.
Curcumin, with the botanical name of Curcuma longa, is considered a powerful health supplement by today's herbalists and naturopaths. Tumeric has been used in both the Indian (Ayurvedic) and Chinese health systems for thousands of years.
PureBulk's Curcumin/Turmeric Extract Powder is non-synthetic and is 'full spectrum' containing curcumin as well as the curcuminoids, desmethoxycurcumin and bis-desmethoxycurcumin.

These curcumin bioavailability protocols facilitate consumption of very large serving sizes of curcumin, from 1.5 grams and up to 7.5 grams per day in some cases. The key factor to understand about concentrated curcumin is that it must be consumed in an emulsified fatty solution. The most commonly employed method of emulsifying curcumin powder is with the curcumin coconut milk protocol. Since coconut milk is already an emulsified fatty solution adding curcumin powder to the hot (almost boiling) coconut milk is easy, quick and effective.
Once added to 1 can of organic coconut milk (usually between 12 and 14 fluid ounces) the coconut milk can be heated on the stove in a sauce pan to 180°F+ and the 1.5 grams up to 7.5 grams curcumin powder added to the hot coconut milk will quickly dissolve (with stirring), making a smooth bright orange solution. After cooling to room temperature (and then refrigerating as needed for storage) the coconut/curcumin milk can be taken throughout the day as desired with fatty meals for maximal bioavailability. The coconut/curcumin milk can be added to foods or taken as a liquid with meals.
