Prowise Optisorb Liquid Curcumin 185x is the most absorbable form of turmeric with 185x taken up into the body than other forms of turmeric. The active ingredients in turmeric include beneficial flavonoids called curcuminoids, which are plant-based antioxidants. They help to fight cell-damaging free radicals in the body. Standard turmeric is poorly absorbed and fails to benefit the rest of the body outside the gut. Prowise form of curcumin survives the stomach acid, is closer in the form to nature and is small enough to fit between microvilli for maximum absorption. Turmeric has been used in Ayurvedic traditions for centuries, as there are numerous health benefits linked to this powerful antioxidant and there are many older citizens in Asia who have attributed increased brain function to this amazing botanical.
