What is Curcumin Powder?

Curcumin the main active ingredient in Turmeric and can also be found in ginger in minute quantities. Curcumin is primarily used as a cholinergic. It synergizes particularly well with piperine, greatly increasing its bioavailability. It also pairs well with fish oil to form an effective cellular health team.*

Curcumin Nootropic Benefits

Curcumin is a cognitive supplement and nootropic. [1] It is able to promote Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), which is necessary for long-term memory. [2] Curcumin supplements also promote cognitive health by inhibiting the buildup of beta amyloid, a peptide known to inhibit cognition.* [3,4,5]

Curcumin 95% Dosage

A wide dosage range exists for curcumin, spanning from 80 to 500mg; however, the most common curcumin dosage is 500mg (2 level 1/8 tsp scoops). As curcumin is poorly absorbed on its own, it should be paired with piperine or phosphatidylcholine to improve bioavailability.
