Turmeric + sulforaphane from broccoli extract
30 daily ration (210 capsules)
Kdo you only know urkuma as a spice? In our CURCU-MORE capsules, turmeric (lat. Curcuma Longa L.) can do a lot more. Did you know that the plant comes from the ginger family? Because of this and because of its striking yellow color, the plant is also called yellow ginger or turmeric root. Turmeric has been valued in India, Asia and China for thousands of years and is used here in traditional health teaching, as well as in Ayurveda. So the root is not only used as a spice, e.g. B. in Indian curry, known. Turmeric is used beyond the kitchen.
The CURCU-MORE turmeric capsules by MORE NUTRITION contain, in addition to turmeric, a high-quality broccoli extract that is rich in the secondary plant substance sulforaphane. The valuable plant substance has received more and more attention in Europe in recent years.

- Broccoli extract with very high sulforaphane content (13%)

Interesting facts about turmeric
Turmeric is native to South Asia. The versatile plant has been known there for a long time. In Southeast Asia and India, turmeric is even considered a sacred plant. Turmeric is an integral part of traditional health and Ayurveda. The effect is also being researched in Europe.
A special feature of turmeric powder is its bright yellow color. The root owes this to the curcuminoids it contains. These include curcumin and other curcumin-like substances - demethoxycurcumin, bisdemethoxycurcumin and cyclocurcumin. The largest part of the powder, however, with about 2 to 3%, makes up the plant substance curcumin.
Curcumin is a secondary plant substance and one of the biologically active substances in the turmeric root. The substance is one of the potent polyphenols that are mainly found in the outer layers of plants in plants and are therefore unfortunately largely lost when fruits and vegetables are peeled.
Turmeric capsules with high quality ingredients
Not all manufacturers are aware of the other curcuminoids and often only sell curcumin extracted as a powder. If turmeric capsules are declared as high-dose, they usually only contain curcumin. Curcumin is not the only valuable plant substance contained in turmeric capsules with pure, natural powder. You shouldn't even reduce turmeric to its curcuminoids, because there are also turmeric saccharides in the roots and thus also in the ground powder.
Our CURCU-MORE capsules therefore deliberately contain no extract, but natural turmeric powder in organic quality and without coloring. This way you get all the valuable phytochemicals that are naturally contained in turmeric.
Why do the turmeric capsules also contain pepper extract?
Secondary plant substances such as curcumin generally have poor bioavailability. This means that the substances can only be absorbed by the body with great difficulty. Curcuminoids are fat-soluble substances that accumulate in the intestinal environment and are therefore difficult to get from the intestine into the bloodstream.
For this reason, CURCU-MORE contains black pepper extract. Because pepper also has an important secondary plant substance - piperine. Thanks to piperine, the bioavailability of curcumin is 20 times higher. One turmeric capsule CURCU-MORE contains 3.0 milligrams of pepper extract, around 95% of which is piperine.
Valuable substances from broccoli extract
To give your body the best nutrients as a dietary supplement, the CURCU-MORE capsules by MORE NUTRITION contain not only turmeric powder, but also broccoli extract.
Since sulforaphane itself is not present in significant quantities in most broccoli extracts, high-quality extract is difficult to obtain. However, our CURCU-MORE capsules contain a high-dose extract. The broccoli extract has a sulforaphane content of 13%, which is confirmed by laboratory analyzes. So you can be sure that you will get exactly what it says on the label!
Interesting facts about broccoli
Did you know that broccoli also comes from Asia and belongs to the cruciferous family? The broccoli plant, but especially broccoli sprouts, contain numerous valuable phytochemicals. The plant substance sulforaphane in particular has gained a lot of attention in recent years. Sulforaphane is also found in other plants, but notable amounts are mainly found in broccoli.
Strictly speaking, broccoli doesn't contain sulforaphane at all. Rather, it arises from the mustard oil glycoside glucoraphanin, which makes it even more difficult to get to the valuable plant substance. It is only through the plant's own enzymes, the myrosinases, that sulforaphane is formed through the cleavage of glucoraphanin. This process only takes place when the plant cell is "cracked". Part of this happens when you chew - but the most effective way to do this is to hoe the plant and let it rest for a while. If you cook broccoli, on the other hand, the important enzyme myrosinase is already destroyed at 45 degrees Celsius, which is why sulforaphane can no longer be produced from cooked broccoli. This is why it is so difficult to supply the body with significant amounts of sulforaphane.
