BIOMOR® Curcumin is a breakthrough product. A large body of scientific literature shows many remarkable health benefits of curcumin (extracted from turmeric) but the problem is that curcumin is poorly absorbed into your bloodstream.
BIOMOR® Curcumin is produced using a patented technology that results in up to 800% greater curcumin absorption in humans—and it's faster-acting and longer-lasting—compared to other curcumin extracts. (8,9,23)
Using no additives, BIOMOR® Curcumin is formulated with components of turmeric normally removed during extraction and creates an inherent synergy of turmeric's natural components to dramatically increase blood levels of curcumin. This manufacturing process is patented and the subject of on-going clinical trials. (8,9,23)
A well-conducted single-dose human clinical study shows BIOMOR® Curcumin is up to 800% more bioavailable (in both absorption and sustainability over 8 hours) than conventional 95% curcumin extracts. (8,9,23)
A published cross-over human clinical study shows BIOMOR® Curcumin provides 637% greater bioavailability (absorption and sustainability over 8 hours) than curcumin blended with piperine and lecithin. (9) NOTE: Experts advise against consuming more than 15 mg of piperine per day.
BIOMOR® Curcumin Contains NO STEARATES
and NO “Vegetable Lubricants”
Stearates (known as “vegetable lubricants” and including magnesium stearate) are hydrogenated oils added at production as a flowing agent, to save manufacturing costs. These fatty substances coat every particle of curcumin, so the particles flow rapidly through machinery.
Magnesium stearate is formed by adding a magnesium ion to stearic acid. Research found stearic acid suppresses T cells, causing collapse of cell membrane integrity and eventually cell function. (25). Another study found that using stearates in supplements reduced the dissolving rate by 65%. (26)
Do the production-coating-oils compromise safety and bioavailability? We think so and this is why BIOMOR® Curcumin is manufactured without it.
It's all about what your body can absorb and BIOMOR® Curcumin is simply the highest-quality curcumin available.
Warnings About Un-Approved Solvents Found in Curcumin Extracts
Widespread Use of Toxic EDC Solvent Found
Shocking data shows widespread contamination of curcumin products with a Class-1 residual solvent known as EDC (1,2-dichloroethane). According to the Toxic Substances and Disease Registry of the Department of Health and Human Services, the potential health effects of exposure to the Class-1 solvent at levels above 5 ppm (parts-per-million) are:
- SHORT-TERM EFFECTS OF EDC: central nervous system disorders; adverse liver, kidney, and lung effects; and heart failure.
- LONG-TERM EFFECTS OF EDC: probable carcinogen.
The problem is so widespread, according to the researchers, “curcumin extract with an EDC amount less than 5 ppm is not easily found.” (24)
NO CLASS-1 SOLVENTS and NO EDC
BIOMOR® CURCUMIN is extracted from turmeric using only a USP/FDA-approved Class-2 solvent.
Why is GC-MS testing used?
Because it can be reliable for other herbs. Note that use of GC-MS for curcumin is not illegal, but un-approved, by USP/FDA. (USP sets the standards used by FDA.)
WARNING ABOUT TESTING METHODS used to Determine Solvent Residue in Curcumin:
- GC-MS testing is un-approved by USP/FDA for curcumin is because it does not break or dissolve curcumin crystals, so contaminants remain undetected, whereas
- GC-HEADSPACE is the approved test by USP/FDA for curcumin as it vaporizes curcumin crystals and releases any solvents.
