Thanks to a special production method, curcuma from this variant is absorbed in the body a remarkable eight times faster than from a standard turmeric extract. Furthermore, BCM-95® turmeric remains active in the body for an extended period, specifically ten hours, and is 100% natural and organically manufactured.
