NutriSHIFT Liposomal Curcumin includes 250 mg Curcuminoids per serving.
Curcumin (also known as curcuminoids) is the active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. The biggest challenge of using curcumin products is its bioavailability. Curcumin is poorly absorbed because it is mostly lost in the digestive process before it reaches the bloodstream. Liposomal Curcumin provides 250 mg of curcuminoids delivered in phosphatidylcholine liposomes for optimal absorption and bioavailability. These liposomes transport the curcuminoids trough the intestinal wall into the bloodstream where it can reach the intended target.
A liposome is a phospholipid (important molecules that provide structure and protection to cells) that forms a barrier around its contents, in this case the curcuminoids. This protective barrier is resistant to enzymes in the mouth and stomach, alkaline solutions, digestive juices, bile salts, and intestinal flora that are generated in the human body, as well as free radicals. Liposomes pass through the digestive process without degrading the curcuminoids so that more of it enters the bloodstream and reaches the intended cells and tissues.
