*Absorbed 7-9 times better than standard curcumin extracts.


Turmeric grows wild in the forests of South and Southeast Asia, and is cultivated for culinary and medicinal use. It's a key ingredient in the yellow-orange curry spice blends used in many Indian, Persian, Thai, Chinese, and Indonesian dishes.

The ancient Indian medicine tradition known as Ayurveda has long featured turmeric in healing*.

The orange-yellow "curcuminoid" compounds that give turmeric its rich hue are believed responsible for the root's potential health benefits*.

Researchers use the term "curcumin" in reference to three specific curcuminoids, which appear largely responsible for its beneficial effects.

Together with modern epidemiological evidence from India, where turmeric root and turmeric-rich curries are dietary staples, its ancient healing tradition has triggered extensive research into the possible health-promoting properties of curcumin. (To learn more, click here.)

Among other things, curcumin appears to exert beneficial effects on gene switches affecting inflammation, which is a factor in many degenerative processes*.

The Vital Choice Curcumin advantage
In its "raw" form, curcumin is very poorly absorbed.

Thankfully, clinical studies show that the curcumin extract we use - Curcugreen® - is absorbed 7 to 9 times better than curcumin in conventional supplements (Antony B et al. 2008).

This advantage means that one 500mg serving (two softgels) of Vital Choice Curcumin is equivalent to about 3,000mg of a typical curcumin supplement.

And curcumin is absorbed much better when it's consumed along with fats, so we mix it into Vital Choice Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon Oil, which provides beneficial omega-3s fatty acids (Goindi S et al. 2010; Jäger R et al. 2014).

The Curcugreen® extract includes turmeric's volatile compounds (e.g., turmerones, curcumenes, zingerbene), which enhance the absorption of curcumin, and provide benefits of their own.

Last but not least, the Indian firm that makes our curcumin extract is widely recognized for its pioneering "green" practices (see their video at YouTube).

Curcumin cautions and drug interactions

  • Dietary turmeric may inhibit the anti-tumor action of chemotherapeutic agents such as cyclophosphamide.
  • Curcumin may interact with drugs that are substrates of P-glycoprotein (P-gp) or cytochrome P450 enzymes.
  • The oxalates in turmeric promote formation of kidney stones, but these compounds are virtually absent from curcumin.
  • Curcumin prevents gallstone and kidney stone formation in rodents, but promotes contraction of the gallbladder, which could exacerbate gallstone problems in human patients. People with bile duct obstruction, gallstones, or GI disorders, including stomach ulcers and hyperacidity disorders, should consult a physisican before taking this supplement.
