Highly bioavailable curcumin (derived from turmeric) formula, providing curcumin as Curcumin C3 Complex® and BioPerine®, a black pepper extract, for general inflammatory support.

Why choose Curcumin Megasorb?
Curcumin Megasorb is ideal for those looking for general inflammation support or a natural and gentle alternative to non-steroidal anti-inflammatories. It provides curcumin in the form Curcumin C3 Complex®, a patented, standardised combination of all three curcuminoid compounds contained in turmeric. Turmeric has a long history of traditional use in supporting many aspects of health, including inflammation. Of the curcuminoids, curcumin is the most active, and has the ability to support mulitple pathways to help control inflammation and provide potent antioxidant support. The additional curcuminoids contained in Curcumin C3 Complex® help to stabilise the curcumin and provide additional protective antioxidant benefits. C3 Complex is backed by extensive clinical research with numerous clinical trials having been conducted in universities and research institutes globally. Curcumin Megasorb combines Curcumin C3 complex® with BioPerine®, a black pepper extract, for enhanced bioavailability and provides a natural, safe and gentle alternative to non-steroidal anti-inflammatories.
What is Curcumin C3 Complex®?
Curcumin C3 Complex® is a patented curcumin complex with a unique composition ratio, providing curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin, collectively known as curcuminoids. It is an extract derived from the rhizomes (roots) of the plant Curcuma longa, also known as turmeric. Extracted from sustainably-grown, non-GMO crops of Curcuma longa, Curcumin C3 Complex® is a very high quality, consistent, safe and efficacious form of curcumin that has been studied extensively in a variety of research initiatives.
The additional curcuminoids contained in Curcumin C3 Complex® help to stabilise the curcumin and provide additional protective antioxidant benefits. Curcumin C3 Complex® is more soluble because of the inclusion of bisdemethoxycurcumin, making the formula more absorbable in the gastrointestinal tract, and able to provide more health benefits than curcumin alone.
Why is Black Pepper/BioPerine® important?
BioPerine® is a patented extract obtained from black pepper fruits (Piper nigrum). Typically, curcumin is not well absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract, but BioPerine® has been shown to help improve absorption of this compound by up to 2000% compared to bioavailability of curcumin alone. BioPerine® has been used as a bioavailability enhancer for over 20 years and has undergone clinical studies to substantiate its safety and efficacy for nutritional use.
Are curcumin and turmeric the same thing?
No, not exactly. Turmeric refers to the yellow-coloured Indian spice derived from the root of the plant scientifically known as Curcuma longa. Turmeric contains a number of naturally-occurring chemical compounds, known as curcuminoids, of which curcumin is the most active.
Why are standardised extracts important?
A standardised herbal extract is a specific concentration of one or more of the chemical compounds found in the plant. It guarantees that the potency and amount of active compounds contained in the product is the same as those advertised on the label and is consistent from batch to batch. With standardised herbal extracts, you know you're getting a sufficient amount of the beneficial compound, as determined by scientific evidence.
What other areas of health are supported?
Curcumin has such broad uses for a wide range of health conditions, having been shown in studies to be helpful for supporting, among others, joint health and mobility, brain function, digestion, skin and cardiovascular health.
