Curcumin – the most active constituent of turmeric – is one of the most powerful botanicals in the world. Proven to support a healthy inflammatory response, this compound modulates inflammation and its damaging effects. But, the benefits of curcumin have been hampered by poor absorption and limited availability to inflamed tissues.  

Bio-Curcumin® BCM95® boasts a 100% natural turmeric extract, delivers up to seven times more free and bioactive curcumin into the bloodstream than many regular curcumin extracts plus it remains bio-active for over eight hours. 

It is a patented synergistic blend of curcuminoids and ar-turmerone, produced using a combination of modern and traditional knowledge. 

Available to purchase at leading health stores, health pharmacies in the United Kingdom, Ireland and South Africa, as well as Wellness Warehouse and Dischem in South Africa.
