- Articulations & Antioxidant
The only curcumin that dared to compare itself to others!
Ensuring the correct absorption of curcuminoids means guaranteeing the traditional benefits of Turmeric on the articular and antioxidant spheres. The comparative clinical study on TurmiPure Gold® Bio demonstrated superior bioavailability compared to other patents for vectorized curcumin.
Ensuring good bioavailability means avoiding high doses of Turmeric while ensuring its effectiveness. The toxicological clinical study on TurmiPure Gold® Bio has demonstrated its good tolerance and long-term safety. This study also allowed deciphering the mechanism of absorption and metabolism of curcumin.

Origin and "starification"
Curcuma longa is a rhizome (an underground stem) of the Zingiberacae (or ginger) family. It contains curcuminoids, which are polyphenols, responsible for the yellow-orange pigmentation in turmeric. For twenty years, the frequency of publications on turmeric has continued to grow , revealing a real craze for this plant, which has become known throughout the world.
In the Ayurvedic tradition (from South Asia), it is used as a medicinal herb to allow good mobility of the joints, or to preserve beautiful skin from various problems. . But in general, turmeric is widely known and recognized for its antioxidant and soothing properties, especially on the intestinal sphere for example  ...
Curcumin, nutraceutical asset
But what does turmeric contain and who makes it so popular? Among its many molecules of interest, the famous curcuminoids (1 to 6%) remain those that have attracted the most attention of researchers. There are in fact 3 sub-categories of bioactive molecules within this family :
- Curcumin (60-70% of curcuminoids),
Curcumin has widely recognized antioxidant activity . An antioxidant, by its definition, is able to act in very small amounts on the oxidative attacks that the body must face. This is why turmeric is a real asset in the fight against the premature aging of our cells.
Choosing your turmeric
But if it sounds so much like an ideal nutraceutical, why isn't it so easy to effectively upgrade turmeric capsules?
Well, because there is a "But", and it's a big one. Indeed, scientific data has undoubtedly highlighted the low bioavailability of curcumin and that the conjugated form (weakly bioactive) appeared as the most abundant form in plasma (after oral intake) while only a very low percentage of the free form (bioactive) is thought to pass into the blood [5–8]. In addition, pure curcumin is insoluble in water and in many fats, giving it poor absorption and bioavailability (absorption capacity) characteristics. Basically, while curcumin is beneficial, taking turmeric capsules does not guarantee sufficient assimilation by the body, let alone the desired effects.
Assessment of the races, several nutraceutical challenges arose:
- Optimize the concentration of curcuminoids,
- And increase the bioavailability, that is, the ability of curcuminoids to pass into the blood so that they can reach target tissues.
It is in this context that Nutri & Co has carefully considered the best solutions to optimize the effectiveness of turmeric.
In this new version of our Curcuma², we have combined an extract that has demonstrated its high bioavailability compared to standard extracts and its tolerance: TurmiPure Gold® Bio. In addition to the consistent results in the studies to its credit, its characteristics make it an ideal candidate: 30% curcuminoids and vectorization (emulsion and microgranulation).
In the clinical pharmacological study conducted on TurmiPure Gold® Bio, the intake via 300 mg of the latter was equivalent to 2264 mg of turmeric with 95% curcuminoids + black pepper (piperine), i.e. a 22 times greater bioavailability [9 ].
If we systematically refer to curcumin as the main molecule of interest in turmeric (the majority among the curcuminoid family), its stability profile suggests that its benefits are driven by some of its metabolites. This same clinical pharmacological study has precisely demonstrated the fate of curcumin and its effective and predominant transformation into tetrahydrocurcumin (THC), one of the metabolites most highlighted by scientists today.
Turmeric is often the subject of controversy in terms of safety. The clinical intestinal tolerance study carried out on TurmiPure Gold® Bio on 60 subjects proved its tolerance and safety at an intake of 1000 mg (ie 300 mg of curcuminoids) .
Turmeric and benefits
In general, it should be noted that the mechanisms of action of bioactive molecules in turmeric and in particular curcumin (more widely studied) are poorly described. However, here are the scientific leads that we have in hand. Turmeric owes its beneficial action to 3 major different processes:
- Decreased histamine production,
- Strengthening the action of the adrenal hormone (kidneys), cortisol,
- Improves circulation by removing toxins from the joints.
It is through these processes that turmeric has a positive effect on joint comfort . While today it is difficult to rule on precise mechanisms, some clinical studies have shed light on the beneficial roles of turmeric and its bioactive compounds. Clinical studies have shown the beneficial value of pure curcumin as an antioxidant as well as a cell defense agent (abnormal cell proliferation) [12–14].
Beyond these properties, scientific publications summarizing work on turmeric have identified that it could have effects on [15–18]:
- Improvement of gastrointestinal disorders,
- Protection of the liver,
- Microbial defenses,
- Neurological functions.
In conclusion, in the context of joint discomfort (the main cause of the intake of turmeric), the clinical research base on the effects of turmeric suggests that supplementation may be beneficial, even if several variable criteria when studying these compounds in clinical work prevent us from drawing firm conclusions on the mechanism of action: chemical stability, water solubility, targeted activities, bioavailability, metabolism, applied dosage… . In contrast, the body of evidence points to scientific evidence for the positive relationship between turmeric and joint comfort [19-22]. .Publications
A question ?Our experts answer all your questions.
Why do we focus everything on absorption?
As for nutrients and plant active ingredients, absorption refers to their ability to pass the intestinal barrier to reach the blood plasma and make themselves available to the cells of the body.
In its natural state, curcumin exhibits very low absorption. To benefit from its effectiveness, you must ingest at least 40 grams of powdered turmeric, or 2 grams of turmeric concentrated at 95% curcuminoids ... This is considerable!
It was therefore essential to choose a curcumin grafted to a transporter capable of significantly increasing its absorption. Our choice fell on TurmiPure Gold®. Containing 30% curcuminoids, it has 22 times greater absorption than a conventional turmeric - piperine combination.
Do I have to take it continuously?
The ideal is to take Curcuma² when you need it, when you experience joint discomfort for example. If this discomfort persists, the intake can be continued with a break of 2 weeks every 8 weeks.
Why doesn't your formula contain black pepper?
Many turmeric preparations highlight the addition of black pepper (piperine) in order to increase the absorption of curcumin. However, an independent study in 2012 demonstrated the very low interest of such a preparation. Indeed, piperine (active ingredient of black pepper) does not increase the assimilation of curcumin but the intestinal permeability. This involves two phenomena:
- The absorption of all the elements present in the digestive tract, including harmful elements such as heavy metals or nutrients not completely digested,
- Curcumin is largely absorbed in its conjugated form. As this undigested form is not bioactive, the body struggles to use it correctly.
Is there a risk of excess of Curcuma²?
To date, there is no definitive evidence on the potential harmful effects of turmeric. Doses of up to 8 grams of turmeric powder per day are safe, according to the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists. TurmiPure Gold® benefits from a clinical toxicological study which has demonstrated its safety at more than 1 g / day. Our recommended daily dose is 300 mg per day, which is three times less than clinically demonstrated tolerance. In all cases, people on anticoagulants should seek advice from their doctor before supplementation.
Are athletes concerned by Curcuma²?
Insofar as some athletes put their joints to the test, they are obviously concerned by Curcuma². They are used to taking care of their joints, in particular thanks to food supplements based on chondroitin or glucosamine. If they are effective, their action will take a long time to be put in place. To provide a quick solution, turmeric has established itself in recent years as a Nutra of choice.
Can I give your Curcuma² to my dog?
Unfortunately no. Although Curcuma² is also documented for its effects on the joints of our best friends, its veterinary use is strictly regulated. Thus, food supplements based on Turmeric are reserved for humans only. If you want to give turmeric to your pet, talk to your veterinarian, he will direct you to specific and suitable brands and products.
