Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric and it has amazing health benefits, but bioavailability / absorption has always been a major challenge for this super-nutrient. The problem is that most supplement companies don’t know how to make curcumin bioavailable. Formulating for maximum bioavailability and absorption REQUIRES three things that most curcumin brands don’t—or can’t—deliver:
A proven, patented form of curcumin / Specialized technology to encapsulate the curcumin for max absorbability / Proprietary know-how to assure the end product’s stability.
Most curcumin supplements have such low absorption rates that the majority of the product is expelled in your urine. If the product isn’t being absorbed in your body, then you’re not the getting the benefits you paid for.
Ok, you now know that curcumin has some seriously impressive health benefits, but if you’ve been doing your homework, then you probably also know that curcumin ALONE is poorly absorbed by the body — making bioavailability a MAJOR issue. Bioavailability is the amount of a substance that actually enters your bloodstream so you get the health benefits you’re looking for. Without it you’re just wasting your money.
We’ve solved the problem. Smarter Nutrition has discovered a unique, holistic system for making curcumin more bioavailable than ever.
Since curcumin is fat soluble, delivering it with a fat source, a healthy oil, makes it fully bioavailable to your body — giving you access to all of those health benefits. Smarter Curcumin comes in a liquid (veggie) softgel with “Black Seed Oil” and other smart support ingredients making it the most bioavailable curcumin you can buy!
Smarter Nutrition Curcumin was specifically formulated with science-based ingredients to help your body absorb curcumin’s benefits just like a sponge.
We use a patented form of curcumin with 95% tetra-hydro curcuminoids (THCs), the purest, most potent curcumin extracts that exist — 250x more potent than regular curcumin! Smarter Nutrition Curcumin is co-formulated with black cumin seed oil and patented plant extracts that increase absorption by an unprecedented 92% and boost curcumin’s benefits.
The Most “Active” Form of Curcumin
We start with the most active form of curcumin you can get, called 95% tetra-hydro curcuminoids. This premium active form of curcumin is already pre-converted to the most bioavailable form — so it goes to work in your body almost immediately. All other forms of curcumin take hours or more for your body to convert to begin working.
Black Cumin Seed Oil
Powdered curcumin supplements (the type you see everywhere) are too difficult for your body to absorb on its own. To make curcumin bioavailable, manufacturer’s need to either:
A. Heat it / B. Change its pH level / C. Use an oil-based delivery.
Options A and B just aren’t possible without sapping the good stuff that curcumin’s known for.
Since curcumin is what’s called fat-soluble it has to be delivered to your bloodstream with a fat source. But not just any fat will do. We use black cumin seed oil because its essential fatty acids allow your body to absorb the curcumin, and it further supports your body’s healthy immune and inflammatory responses too. In fact, black cumin seed oil may be the most compatible ingredient to curcumin in existence. Black cumin (Nigella sativa) is one of the oldest plants cultivated on earth. There are over 600 studies showing the health benefits of black cumin seed oil.
Astragulus and Ginseng
This proprietary combination of the herbs called AstraGin, Panax notoginseng and Astragalus membranaceus, was shown to increase nutrient absorption by 92%. Astragulus is from one of the most powerful immune-building plants on the planet. Plus, it’s what’s called an adaptogen, meaning it activates when you’re under stress to lower cortisol levels.
Ginger provides added digestive support. It’s also a close botanical relative to turmeric and has many overlapping nutrients and benefits. Research shows that when the two are combined they have an increased positive healing effect
Lecithin provides additional benefits for your heart and liver. It’s an essential nutrient required by the body, that is rich in choline and other essential fatty acids and phospholipids that we often don’t get through diet alone.

MOST ACTIVE FORM OF CURCUMIN FOR INCREASED POTENCY: Curcumin is the active ingredient that gives turmeric root its potency. But our formula goes above and beyond, using curcumin standardized to 95% tetra-hydro-curcuminoids — that’s the most active form of curcumin — for enhanced effectiveness in the body!
UNIQUE OIL-BASED SOFTGEL FOR QUICK, EASY ABSORPTION: Most turmeric curcumin supplements are just dry powder in a capsule. But curcumin is a fat-soluble nutrient — it can only be absorbed in the body through fat or oil. Our unique liquid softgel suspends curcumin in black seed oil, a good fat known for its antioxidant and immune-boosting benefits.*
SELECT BIOENHANCERS TO SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE UPTAKE: Our formula includes AstraGin, a patented herbal complex that boosts the absorption of curcumin, plus ginger extract, a traditional bioenhancer that works in synergy with curcumin to enhance its effects.* We don’t use black pepper extract, which can irritate the stomach.
CURCUMIN DISCOURAGES FREE RADICAL DAMAGE: Turmeric and curcumin offer nourishing benefits for the health of the joints, the heart, the brain, the digestive system, the immune system, and more.* As antioxidants, curcuminoids discourage the oxidative stress that free radicals can cause to support natural aging processes.*
