Curcumin, the bioactive component of turmeric, Curcuma longa has an exceptionally wide spectrum of activities including antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Methods to increase its oral bioavailability are a subject of intense current research. In the present clinical study to determine the bioavailability or curcuminoids, a patented formulation, BCM-95® CG was tested on a human volunteer group. Results of the present study indicate that curcumin is absorbed early and retained longer from the BCM-95® CG composition compared to normal curcumin as well as from curcumin-lecithin-piperine combination.
