It is an extract from the Black Pepper Fruit that is standardized to 95% Piperine. BioPerine® is a trademarked ingredient and is the only product of Piperine to obtain a patented status for its ability to increase the bioavailability of nutritional compounds and is also the only source of Piperine to have undergone clinical studies in the U.S. to substantiate its safety and efficacy for nutritional use.

Some brands add artificial fillers to cut cost to offer cheap products. Some of these cheap fillers we found were titanium dioxide and artificial coloring. You should never purchase cheap products when it comes to supplements. You should avoid turmeric supplements that lack BioPerine or black pepper extracts. We noticed some ineffective brands recently with additives such as essential oils, ginger and Boswellia, there has been no clinical studies to prove these additives are effective in turmeric curcumin supplements. For your convenience, below we have listed the Top Turmeric Curcumin brands.

Has your brand been third-party tested?
You should never buy supplements that don’t have Certificate of Analysis. The studies should be conducted in labs that are not affiliated with the manufacturer. These labs verify the product for safety and potency. Only buy supplements that are backed by third-party labs and manufactured in an FDA approved facility.

What are the capsules made of?
Another important factor to consider in supplements is to make sure the capsules are made with vegetable cellulose. This ensures you the supplement is all natural. Vegetarian capsules dissolve appropriately and show better results.
