We often get asked the same question, which is of your blends is better for me? Turmeric capsules or turmeric powder? The simple answer is, it really is a matter of preference.
Some of our customers swear by the powder and wont even entertain the thought of the capsules. Most I speak to choose to take it in the morning as a quick shot, mixed with yoghurt, warm nut milk or even water. Others love the experimental side of cooking with it, developing new recipes or finding ways to sneak it into their kid’s diets without them knowing!!!!
For some, the powder requires too much thought, they love the convenience of the capsules, one quick capsule and you’re done for the day.
But is there a difference in what it will do for me and my body?
It does not matter in what form the turmeric curcumin is delivered into your body, what really does matter is the bio availability, this is how much of the ‘good stuff’ can be absorbed. The bio availability of curcumin depends very much the turmeric being blended with the right ingredients and both of our blends include the MCT from coconut oil and black pepper, together they increase the bio availability by 2000%!!!!
The powder [blend] is a blend of 9 ingredients each bringing different health benefits and increasing the anti oxidants available.
With our capsules [blend] you are obviously taking a lot less powder, that is why we have enriched them with high potency curcumin extracted directly from the turmeric root (95% curcumin) to ensure you are getting a powerful hit of anti-inflammatory. We have encased them using Hypromellose (vegetable capsule shell) which is easily broken down in your gut giving our turmeric capsules optimum absorption rates.
So what’s the verdict?
It comes down to the individual. The added antioxidants in the TURMERIC [blend] Powder is a great reason to use the powder [blend]. Although some people can’t face the earthy taste and want quick & easy, it’s the capsules for them.
Of course, the very best option would be to treat yourself to a Big [blend] Bundle so you get the best of both worlds!!!!!
