Our Supplement of the Month is BYWGs Turmeric Boost

Turmeric has been in the news for its surprising effectiveness to manage inflammatory issues and arthritis pain.  However, not all turmeric supplementation is the same!  Curcumin is one of the key active ingredients of Turmeric but it is not the only one and research suggests that supplementing with the whole turmeric is better than extracted curcumin alone.

Turmeric is notoriously difficult for the body to absorb and it is also a challenge to get the minimum recommendation of 1 gram per day in our diet.  Turmeric BCM-95 is a patented form of whole turmeric that helps to address this issue by providing a trademarked formula with 700-900% better absorption in human clinical trials.  In addition, it doesn’t require black pepper to be absorbed which can be a sensitivity for some patients.  We added medium chain triglycerides (MCT) to BYWG Nutrition’s Turmeric Boost, which is a fat that encourages even better absorption as well.  Once again, no fillers, no wheat, no gluten, no diary – just value, quality and effectiveness.
