The spice of life

Thursday, July 2, 2020
Turmeric, the root of curcuma longa and a leafy plant in the ginger family, is possibly best-known as a spice and one of the main components of curry powder and Asian cuisine. It has also been a buzz word in the health and wellbeing sector for years now, touted as one of the most versatile nutritional supplements to ever grace our shelves!

Turmeric has a long traditional history of use by both Ayurvedic and Chinese practitioners to support joint, cardiovascular and digestive health and overall general wellbeing. Many studies have investigated how the many bioactive compounds in turmeric give it powerful health-supporting properties, the most important of which, and possibly most powerful, is curcumin.

As a nutritional supplement, the antioxidant and immune-supporting actions of curcumin have been shown to support:

  • Stiff joints and tired muscles
  • Compromised circulation
  • Digestive concerns
  • Nervous system health
  • General wellbeing.

Turning to turmeric

With so many turmeric supplements on the market, it is hard to know you are getting the one that is right for you. GO LIFE Turmeric 30,000+ supports total body health and wellbeing. It provides supreme-strength turmeric extract, plus BioPerine® for increased absorption, in a convenient, one-a-day dose. 

Why use BioPerine® with curcumin?

It’s recommended to find a product with BioPerine® (the trademarked name for piperine), which is the substance that enhances curcumin absorption by 2,000 percent.

Without this substance, most of the curcumin just passes through your digestive tract.

A study done at St. John's Medical College, Bangalore, India and published in Planta Medica journal in 1997, provided scientific evidence of piperine's role in increasing the bioavailability of curcumin, and has become one of the most downloaded papers of that journal! 

BioPerine® significantly improved the uptake of curcumin – the healthful extract from turmeric roots with scientifically-validated efficacy in a wide range of health conditions.

The bioavailability of curcumin (2,000mg) when co-adminstered with BioPerine® (20mg) was enhanced 2,000 percent compared to the bioavailability of curcumin alone at doses that were devoid of adverse side effects.

Key benefits:

  • High-potency and high-absorption turmeric formula
  • Supports total body health and wellbeing
  • Convenient, one-a-day dose.


Always read the label and take as directed. If symptoms persist, consult your healthcare professional. GO LIFE, Auckland.
