Curcumin is the main biologically active ingredient in turmeric. It has anti-inflammatory effects and is a strong antioxidant. However, only 2% of turmeric’s weight is actually curcumin. Therefore, it is very difficult to ingest enough of this herb to achieve its full benefit.
BCM-95 is the product of a unique extraction process in which the bioactive compound Curcumin and the essential oils (Ar)-turmerone are extracted from turmeric at a high concentration. BCM-95 is 100 percent pure extract of turmeric with better bio-availability and bio-efficacy. It is a patented ingredient that is 7-9 x more bioavailable than conventional curcumin-95% extract. This is due to the combination of the curcumin and essential oil.
