Scientific Name: Curcuma Ionga
The Source: India
Why We Love It: Our capsules have 19x the Curcumin content of the ground turmeric spice. This makes it one of the strongest turmeric supplements going around, in its most bio-enhanced form for more superior absorption and bioavailability. It’s so powerful, it doesn’t need the aid of non-turmeric additives such as black pepper. This means almost 7x more Curcumin gets absorbed and provides all of the beneficial effects with only one capsule twice a day. They don’t call it the ‘Golden Goddess’ for nothing!
As one of nature’s purest and most powerful superfood healers, Turmeric has been used in Ayurvedic food and medicine for over 5,000 years. The idea of using turmeric as a both a spice and a pharmaceutical originally spread through Asia and the Middle East, and it’s a practice we still rely on today. Solving health issues or flavouring scrambled eggs… there’s really nothing turmeric can’t do.
The Active Ingredients
Curcumin is the main active ingredient in Turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant.- Essential oils from within the Turmeric Root (Rhizome) aid absorption without the need for any other additives like black pepper. The turmeric oil contains beneficial turmerones not found in other Curcumin products.- This super spice contains more than 300 naturally occurring components including beta-carotene, ascorbic acid(vitamin C), calcium, flavonoids, fibre, iron, niacin, potassium, zinc and other nutrients.
The health benefits of Curcumin — the active compound in turmeric — have been praised far and wide since the dawn of time. There’s just one catch: it’s thought to be poorly absorbed when taken orally. Tonik No.3 gets around this by combining micronised Curcumin with naturally occurring turmeric oils. A super formulation shown to be up to 7x more absorbable than standardised 95% curcuminoid / turmeric extracts.
