BCM-95 curcumin shows high absorption.

In a recent comparison analysis conducted by EuroPharma, researchers analyzed differences in absorption of curcumin products, including BCM-95 curcumin from EuroPharma, plain curcumin and phytosome form curcumin.

Researchers sought to understand what level of full-spectrum curcuminoids can be detected in the blood, and how long the curcuminoids remain in the bloodstream within the therapeutic range.

Researchers compared the average increase of curcumin in the bloodstream following use of BCM-95 curcumin, curcumin phytosome and plain curcumin, as determined by published human absorption data. Each 1 mg of BCM-95 curcumin = a 0.34 increase in curcumin in the bloodstream, measured as nanograms per gram (ng/g). Each 1 mg curcumin phytosome complex = 0.15 ng/g. Plain curcumin was less than 0.04 ng/g. The highest serum increase was seen with BCM-95 curcumin, which raised the blood levels of curcumin more than twice as much as the phytosome form.
