Viva Labs Curcumin

Written by:
Viva Labs Curcumin

Curcumin is a yellow pigment found primarily in turmeric, the curry spice often used in Indian cuisine (ginger contains small amounts as well).

Research has shown that this amazing little molecule exhibits antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and anticancer activities and thus has a potential against various malignant diseases, diabetes, allergies, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, and other chronic illnesses.

Curcumin does have a drawback, though: it’s poorly absorbed by the body, requiring very large amounts to reap its many benefits. There’s an easy solution to this, however: pairing it with black pepper dramatically improves absorption thanks to the piperine content in the pepper.

That’s why I use this curcumin product–it contains 500 mg of curcumin and 25 mg of piperine per serving, which has been shown to increase curcumin absorption by 2,000%.

How to Take Curcumin

When you’re taking a curcumin supplement enhanced with piperine, clinically effective dosages range from 80 to 500 mg per day. Personally I take 500 mg per day to reap all of the benefits curcumin has to offer.
