Turmeric Curcumin C3 Complex by Victoria Health is a turmeric supplement containing one of the most impressive curcumin extracts called Curcumin C3 Complex. This curcumin supplement supports overall health and wellbeing.
Curcumin C3 Complex with BioPerine®is a powerful antioxidant ingredient that aims to support temporary joint inflammation and pain. BioPerine® improves the absorption and bioavailability of nutrients. Ideal for those looking for a pure and higher dosage of Curcumin.
Curcumin C3 Complex's health benefits are impressing scientists around the world with its remarkable antioxidant and cell protective properties. Curcumin is a polyphenol present in the spice turmeric and was first used by Indians over 3,000 years ago in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Modern science has found that curcumin has remarkable antioxidative, immunomodulatory, proapoptotic, hepatoprotective and antiangiogenic properties. Curcumin is also found to increase detoxifying enzymes and promote healthy DNA function.
This high strength curcumin supplement contains an extract derived from the rhizomes (roots) of the plant Curcuma longa, also known as turmeric. Curcumin C3 Complex is obtained from the dried rhizomes of Curcuma longa (Turmeric) and standardized for minimum 95% Curcuminoids. The name Curcumin C3 has reference to its three main chemical compounds - Curcumin, Demethoxycurcumin (DMC) and Bisdemethoxycurcumin (BDMC)—collectively known as “Curcuminoids”.
The most important factor in choosing an effective curcumin supplement is bioavailability (absorption). Curcumin C3 Complex is a premium and patented form of curcumin. It has the highest absorption of any curcumin on the market (95% absorption of curcuminoids). We further increase the absorption by adding Bioperine® (a patented form of Piperine).
Because better health benefits come from better bioavailability, Turmeric Curcumin C3 Complex provides more health benefits for your heart, brain, joints, immune and circulation, and beyond.

Why is black pepper interesting in food supplements?
Black pepper has been used in human diet from ancient times and is one of the most widely used spices throughout the world. It has also been used in various traditional medicines, preservatives and health supplements. Materia Medica of Ayurveda documents black pepper as one of the three herbs essential ingredients for several prescriptions and formulations. Out of 370 compound formulations listed in the Handbook of Domestic Medicines and Common Ayurvedic Remedies, 210 contain either Trikatu (meaning three acrids) or its individual ingredients (i.e. black pepper, long pepper and ginger). In Ayurveda, Trikatu has been described as a major decoction useful in restoring imbalance of Kapha, Vata and Pitta. (source: https://bioperine.com/aboutbioperine/)
What is the difference between black pepper and BioPerine®?
According to clinical reports, having BioPerine® “in the right place at the right time” in the digestive tract with supplemented nutrient results in enhanced absorption. So, BioPerine® when taken during illness will have the best nutrient absorption. Besides, if piperine were to remain captive in the form of raw black pepper, it will take time for its bioavailability-enhancing property to be released. Therefore, a purified extract of piperine is necessary to get the increased absorption. (source: https://bioperine.com/bioperinevsblackpepper/)
