How to Compare Supplement Facts Labels for Curcumin

BIOMOR® Curcumin is the Name You Can Trust for Full Disclosure Labeling— Why Does it Matter?

How to Compare Curcumin and Turmeric Products

Here's what to look for (both are equally important):

  1. Bioavailability (Absorption): is a MAJOR problem because curcumin is so poorly absorbed and there are many grossly INFLATED claims in advertising. BIOMOR® Curcumin is PATENTED and clinically-proven for best absorption.
  2. Potency (%): is how MUCH curcumin you're getting. A bigger number means more curcumin. Look for the highest potency (95%).

BIOAVAILABILITY (ABSORPTION)

BioMor Curcumin is United States Patented for up to 800 percent Greater Absorption

Patented for #1 Best Absorption

BIOMOR® Curcumin is the only PATENTED curcumin comprised of a proprietary blend of curcuminoids reconstituted with a high content of sepiterpenoids (tumerones, including ar-turmerone, in turmeric essential oil compounds). (9,23)

Clinical Trials

BIOMOR® Curcumin is PATENTED for up to 800% improved absorption in human clinical trials (as compared to other 95% curcumin products).

All the following chart data is from published studies, cited in U.S. Patents. (23)

Graph of BIOMOR Curcumin compared with other curcumin 95 percent extracts.

(Above:) A well-conducted single-dose human clinical study shows BIOMOR® Curcumin is up to 800% more bioavailable (in both absorption and sustainability over 8 hours) than conventional 95%-standardized curcumin extracts. (8,23)

Graph of BIOMOR Curcumin compared with curcumin 95 percent extract blended with piperine and lecithin.

(Above:) A cross-over human clinical study shows BIOMOR® Curcumin provides 637% greater bioavailability (in both absorption and sustainability over 8 hours) than 95%-standardized curcumin blended with piperine and lecithin. (9,23)

Human trials show other curcumin products are mostly excreted as waste. BIOMOR Curcumin has up to 800% better absorption into the blood and organs.

(Above:) Human trials show curcumin products are mostly excreted into the toilet but BIOMOR® Curcumin is shown to be up to 800% better absorbed into the blood and organs than other 95% standardized curcumin products (equivalent to 53,400% better than turmeric). (23)

Clinical trials show taking 1 capsule (500 milligrams) of BIOMOR Curcumin is equivalent to 6.4 capsules (3,185 milligrams) of 95%-standardized curcumin with piperine, is equivalent to up to 8 capsules (4,000 milligrams) other 95%-standardized curcumin, or 421 capsules (210,500 milligrams) of turmeric with native curcumin.

(Above:) Human clinical trials show taking 1 capsule (500 milligrams) of BIOMOR® Curcumin is equivalent to 6.4 capsules (3,185 milligrams) of 95%-standardized curcumin with piperine, or up to 8 capsules (4,000 milligrams) other 95%-standardized curcumin, or 421 capsules (210,500 milligrams) of turmeric with native curcumin.

BIOMOR® Curcumin contains no piperine.

Some formulators add piperine (Piper nigrum) to enhance absorption of curcumin in their products. But the additive is a problem for many consumers because piperine should be taken cautiously (if at all) by anyone taking medications. (4,5)

POTENCY (%)

The Highest and Best Potency for Curcumin is 95%

Potency is how MUCH curcumin, measured by percentage, in each capsule. Graphic shows a turmeric extract contains only 2 percent curcumin, a 20 percent capsule is only 20 percent full of curcumin. 45% capsule is only 45 percent full of curcumin and 95 percent capsule is 95 percent full of curcumin.

Potency is measured by percentage (%). The higher number means more curcumin. There's a huge difference between turmeric extract (2%) and standardized 95% curcumin. The difference is a whopping 4,750%!


The potency of BIOMOR® Curcumin is 95% curcumin and our clinical studies compared against products of the same potency.


POTENCY (%)

Where's the Potency (%)?

When curcumin products fail to disclose potency (%), consumers are left guessing about how MUCH curcumin is truly in each capsule/softgel.

The Potency (should be) in the Small Print

The Supplement Facts label is not required* to show the potency (%) of curcumin. That's unfortunate because it's the only way a consumer may know how MUCH curcumin is in the product.

*NOT REQUIRED by FDA or GMP rules.

The following chart compares reputable and patented brands of curcumin. Many fail to include the potency (%) of their curcumin in the Supplement Facts, so we searched the manufacturer's website and noted this below.

How Much Curcumin is Truly in the Capsule/Softgel? Curcumin Levels per Capsule/Softgel. BioMor Curcumin 500 milligrams capsule contains 475 milligrams of curcuminoids standardized to 95% stated on the label. Curcumin plus phospholipids 750 milligrams softgel contains 475 milligrams curcuminoids standardized to 95%, label states 500 milligrams curcuminoids complex which contains 475 milligrams of standardized curcuminoids. Curcumin with piperine 500 milligrams capsule contains 475 milligrams of curcuminoids standardized to 95% stated on the label.  Curcumin-Lecithin Complex 500 milligrams capsule contains 100 milligrams of curcuminoids not stated on label, 20% curcumin according to manufacturer's website. Water Dispersible Nano Curcumin 300 milligrams capsule contains 90 milligrams of curcuminoids, 30% stated on the label. Turmeric with Native Curcumin 500 milligrams capsule contains 10 to 30 milligrams of curcuminoids per capsule, 2-6 % not stated on the label, turmeric root consists of 2 to 6% native curcuminoids. Nano-emulsion Curcumin 88 milligrams softgel contains 48 milligrams of total curcuminoids, stated on the label, standardized to 95% according to manufacturer's website. Logo: BioMor Curcumin is patented for up to 800% greater absorption. Published, peer-reviewed, human clinical trials show BioMor Curcumin has up to: 800% greater absorption compared to 95% standardized curcumin extract or 38,000% greater than un-standardized native turmeric extract.

    Many other brands fail to disclose the potency (%).
  3. STANDARDIZED CURCUMINOIDS:
    500 mg x 95% = 475 mg of total curcuminoids
    (plus essential oils of turmeric).
    Most brands don't show totals, so you must do the math yourself.
  4. SERVING SIZE:
    ONE (1) capsule of BIOMOR® Curcumin contains 500 mg of “curcuminoids complex.”
    For brands that use TWO (2) capsules/softgels per serving, DIVIDE the total in HALF.

I have been taking your BioMor Curcumin for about 6-8 months now. I will always take it. I have a bad back and it helps alleviate swelling and pain from that but I have done some reading about the longer term benefits of taking it and am so glad to be a customer... Thank you. —Mr. Ed K.*

My husband is a lumber grader and so he uses his shoulders and arms a lot. He has been taking 2 BioMor Curcumin and 2 Flavay Plus per day and he noticed how his shoulders and arms are feeling better. Even his psoriasis is better. Thank you for helping us with something that helps my husband so much! —Ms. D.E.*

Both my wife and I are taking Biomor Curcumin. It has been very effective for both of us. We have tried many brands of curcumin, including one that appears very similar except the other is manufactured using stearates. I felt a very significant difference between Biomor Curcumin and the other brands. I also found Biomor Curcumin is less expensive because I take less, with better results. I'm very happy with Biomor Curcumin —Mr. J.S.*

I don’t have to take aspirin anymore, this Biomor Curcumin is really working for me. But when I stop taking it, my pain comes right back. —Ms. Lynda C.*

Now that I’m taking 4 BioMor Curcumin every day my pain is gone. Only about once a month, I’ll take an antiiflammatory for pain in my knees. I’m feeling so much better. —Ms. Y.L.*

Thank God I found your Biomor Curcumin! My nutritionist recommended I take 5,000 mg curcumin per day, so I tried several brands of curcumin. Of one brand with piperine, I took 8 per day of 580 mg per capsule (4,440 mg per day). Of another brand, also with piperine, I took 6 per day of 875 mg per capsule (5,250 mg per day). Both of the curcumin products with piperine caused me to feel extremely exhausted, to the point where I couldn't do anything but rest. It seems the piperine reacted with my medications. So, I'm so glad to have to have found Biomor Curcumin. I began feeling good with only one 500 mg capsule before bedtime, and I will begin to take another in the morning (1,000 mg per day). I feel great taking Biomor Curcumin. —Mr. N. Smith*

I’ve had good luck with Biomor Curcumin, my arthritic finger cleared up. —Mr. Daniel F.*

I want to tell your company that your Biomor Curcumin is doing wonderful things for my wife. We've tried various curcumin products and this one is the best. —Mr. R.B.*

It (Biomor Curcumin) has been working GREAT for my arthritic knees!!! I was going to have additional shots but decided to try these instead. AMAZING RESULTS!!!! —Mr. B.C.*

My daughter takes Biomor Curcumin for boils and I want to tell you it really helps. —Ms. T.C.*

I judge by my knees! My brother gave me a bottle of Biomor Curcumin and it works much better for me than the other brands of curcumin. —Mr. M.V.*

I'm getting relief from arthritis symptoms in my right knee (taking both Flavay and Biomor Curcumin). Sitting for long periods or getting out of my car was very painful for those first 5-10 steps, but no longer. The swelling in my knee has also subsided and the range of motion has come back... I'm definitely much better and in less pain than before. Another benefit I also noticed is that dry skin in both of my lower legs/ankle area has disappeared. —Mr. B.M.*

Thank you for Biomor Curcumin. I have a muscle disease which affords me little strength, and severe osteoarthritis. I cannot take NSAIDs or steroids due to severe diverticulosis. Biomor Curcumin gives me the flexibility to be able to move about freely. I was about to enter a nursing facility and was introduced to your fine product. —Mr. Kenneth W.*

I am not one to review products, but i can't deny some of the benefits i've experienced using both your curcumin and flavay products. I've been taking both for a few months now, and the two major benefits i've noticed are 1) joint strength and mobility (for workouts) as i am lifting much heavier weights without injury 2) I am a paroxsymal Afib sufferer, and my episodes have gone from 2-3 per week down to zero (most weeks). This can't just be a coincidence. I think there is definitely something in your formulas that stop inflammation and get your body in balance and healing itself. —Mr. B.V.W.*

I am your best Fan...Go BIOMOR...Ra Ra Ra... 😊 😊 —Mr. George D.*

I can't believe what this stuff (BioMor Curcumin) has done for me! I just can't believe it! I was in three car wrecks and so I could hardly move and I was so stiff. But after about 3 weeks jumped out of bed! —Mr. Mike T.*

I've been taking one BioMor Curcumin a day for a long time. It does help. It works well, that's all I'll say. —Mr. John R.*

My husband's hands were hurting so bad but after Biomor Curcumin his hands feel aren't hurting! —Ms. Wanda M.*

Thank you so much for your quick response. The Biomor Curcumin has helped me so much with my Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis and M.S. When I don’t take the Biomor you can see the swelling worsen in my joints, it has helped me so much since I started taking them, and will now add an extra pill or two during the times my inflammation is at it’s worse. I will also continue to advise others to research, and purchase Biomor through Healthy Source. —Ms. B.H.*

I bought BioMor Curcumin for my husband because he had hip surgery years ago and he has a lot of pain on certain days and he says it totally works for him. He doesn’t want to take any more pain killers and this is working for him. —Ms. S. Hill*
