What is the difference between turmeric, curcumin, and BCM-95 Curcumin?

Turmeric is the plant that provides curcumin. A typical turmeric rhizome contains about 2-5 percent curcumin, so taking an unstandardized, powdered turmeric product means that very large amounts would be required to get even a small amount of curcumin.

Additionally, standard curcumin extracts are poorly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. That’s why BCM-95 blends high-quality curcumin with turmeric essential oil in a patented process to significantly enhance absorption. The turmeric oil yields beneficial turmerones not found in other curcumin products. Turmerones also yield benefits similar to curcumin, which is why they have been increasingly studied for a variety of health benefits.* 

The clinically studied curcumin used in Fibroxia (and other Terry Naturally® formulas) is the most clinically studied, enhanced absorption curcumin in the world with over 50 published studies, including numerous human clinical trials.
