It possesses a rich, deep, bright orange/golden colour due to its high content of pigments known as curcuminoids. These beautiful pigments are known as fluorochromes, meaning they are fluorescent! This explains why turmeric has been used as dye, a colouring agent in paint, and why it stains so easily. These pigments are truly unique and very special, seeing they are mostly responsible for turmeric’s therapeutic activity. There are three active curcuminoids present in turmeric: curcumin, demethoxycurcumin (DMC), and bis-demethoxycurcumin (BDMC), with curcumin being the most concentrated.

AOR’s Curcumin Ultra™ is a premium supplement that contains CurQfen®, a proprietary blend that utilizes the newest innovations in curcumin research, combining a proprietary form of curcumin, with Turmacin® for improved bioavailability and bioaccessibility. As a result, our formula is a curcumin product with the highest levels of absorption and bioavailability on the market.
While curcumin is well-regarded because of its many attributes, it is unfortunately also known for its poor absorption rate and the need for fat as a driver to ensure absorption. That’s why Curcumin Ultra™ combines free-form curcumin with turmeric polysaccharides for unparalleled efficacy, which results in a curcumin product with the highest levels of absorption and bioavailability.
Turmeric is a spice that comes from the turmeric plant. It is commonly used in Asian cooking; it is the main spice in curry, and it has a warm and bitter taste. Its root contains a yellow-colored chemical called curcumin, which has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries in India. It is estimated that its use dates back nearly 4,000 years to when the Indian Vedic culture used it as a culinary ingredient as well as in religion. It is believed that it reached China by 700 A.D., arriving in East Africa by 800 A.D., and West Africa by 1200 A.D., respectively. Turmeric made its way to Jamaica in the New World during the 18th century. The root has gained popularity in the U.S. where many people take advantage of its health benefits.
