Common Questions

Q: Why is the curcumin in Curcumin Max’s liquid Brain Octane oil softgel better absorbed than the curcumin from typical powders? 
A: Curcumin, ginger, boswellia and stephania contain lipophilic compounds, meaning they are “fat soluble” and need to be taken with a fat source to be best absorbed and utilized by the body. The curcumin used in Curcumin Max was specifically developed to overcome the low absorption of typical 95% curcumin powders. It emphasizes the naturally occurring aspects of whole turmeric root, including the most active and bioavailable compounds that are needed by the body to absorb curcumin and put it to work for you.

Q: Why is the Brain Octane oil and softgel a better delivery system than powdered capsules? 
A: Brain Octane oil is a smart fat, distilled from the most potent part of the coconut. Since important aspects of curcumin, ginger, boswellia and stephania are known to be better absorbed with an oil, Brain Octane is a great alternative to support absorption.

Q: What is the difference between turmeric and curcumin? 
A: You may have heard “turmeric” and “curcumin” used interchangeably, but the difference is impactful. Curcumin or “curcuminoids” are the active compounds found in turmeric root responsible for all of the great health benefits. Curcuminoids are potent antioxidant and healthy inflammation response supporting compounds. However, they only make up about 2% of the turmeric root, which is why a standardized and bioavailable curcumin source is critical in maximizing its amazing benefits.

Q: What is the difference between standard curcumin powders and the whole turmeric complex used in Curcumin Max? 
A: Due to its patented preparation process, Acumin®—the turmeric complex in Curcumin Max—has been clinically demonstrated to deliver 10-times greater bioavailability versus standard curcumin 95% powders. It goes through a physical (non-chemical) extraction process where the most beneficial turmeric nutrients are standardized and blended together in a natural turmeric matrix. This process allows for superior curcumin absorption and all the benefit without the use of added chemicals or unnecessary enhanced absorption ingredients.  

Q: What is stephania root? 
A: Stephania tetrandra has been a well-kept secret from Western medicine. It is a plant native to China and Taiwan shown in pre-clinical trials to have unique effects on a healthy inflammation response. It is one of the 50 fundamental herbs used in Traditional Chinese medicine, and now you can get it in Curcumin Max.

A: Yes.

Q: Do the ingredients in Curcumin Max support healthy joints?
