Capturing the Power and Potential of Curcumin from Turmeric Roots
Curcumin is the compound in the turmeric spice that provides its golden yellow color. It also offers many health benefits and has been used for thousands of years in traditional medicine.
The challenge with curcumin for everyday use as a supplement has been that once extracted from turmeric, it’s poorly absorbed in the bloodstream during digestion. So you had to take very large doses to get desired benefits – this is both expensive and hard to do each day.
This problem has been overcome with the introduction of the patented BCM-95® extract. By combining curcumin with oils also in turmeric, BCM-95® dramatically improves the absorption of curcumin. For example, when comparing absorption and sustainability in the bloodstream, just 400mg of BCM-95® is equivalent to 2,500mg of regular curcumin.
BCM-95® helps support a healthy inflammation response in your body, aiding joint and muscle health, supporting a balanced mood, cognitive function and immune system function.
BCM-95® is made from turmeric plants grown using organic practices. After the plants are hand harvested, the BCM-95® powder is made in a state-of-the-art facility using a patented method. No harmful solvents are used.
Each batch of BCM-95® is independently tested for purity and unwanted levels of heavy metals or contaminants.
BCM-95®: Made From the Finest Turmeric Grown with Organic and Sustainable Farming Practices
Ideal conditions for growing turmeric is a frost free climate that gets plenty of rain, but in soil that drains rapidly.
You’ll find these conditions in Northeast India – which is why this region is known for producing the finest turmeric plants. The turmeric for BCM-95® comes from this region, in Northeast India.
The local farmers are very careful about the organic farming techniques they use. You won’t find pesticides or harsh chemical fertilizers on the farms used to make BCM-95®.
Instead they strictly use natural fertilizers like animal manure and repurposed turmeric roots, rhizomes and leaves.
Most of the work, including harvesting, is done by hand. From start to finish, very little machinery is used.
Since turmeric is such an important crop to the region, the locals are careful to use eco-friendly and sustainable practices.
The makers of BCM-95® make sure the farmers are paid reasonable, competitive prices for their crops.
The challenge with curcumin for everyday use has been that once extracted from turmeric, it’s poorly absorbed in the bloodstream during digestion.
So you had to take very large doses to get desired benefits – this is both expensive and hard to do each day. This problem has been overcome with the introduction of BCM-95®.
BCM-95® improves absorption using a patented process that combines curcumin with essential oils also found in turmeric.
The bottom line is when comparing absorption and sustainability in the bloodstream, just 400mg of BCM-95® is equivalent to 2,500mg of regular curcumin.
There are two types of curcumin: spice grade turmeric and extractable root turmeric. BCM-95® is made from the extractable root turmeric because while it requires a more delicate and expensive process to extract the curcumin and turmeric oil, the root contains up to 300% more curcumin than regular spice grade turmeric.
As a result, harsh and potentially unsafe solvents don’t need to be used to extract the curcumin from the turmeric – just ethanol and ethyl acetate.
Once extracted, the curcumin and turmeric oil are immediately tested to ensure there’s no lingering solvents – just pure, powerful curcumin and essential turmeric oil.
Other companies use the spice grade turmeric, because it’s cheaper, and then use harsh solvents like acetone – the stuff in nail polish remover and rubber cement – to try and squeeze out the curcumin. That’s not the case with of BCM-95®.
All of these efforts ensure that you get potent and safe curcumin powder!

I'm tired of the hype over supplements. I have been taking this for a month and don't detect any difference in the way I feel, look or anything else. I'll continue to take it for a while, in case it really is decreasing inflammation. And it's expensive, too!
Using product for multiple years. Never disappointed with product or service.
It really helps comfort my joints.
The naturally occurring substance in Turmeric—this has been an incredible health gift for my family! Boosts immune system, decreases inflammation in a variety of ways, excellent for joints in runners to help keep knee and hip inflammation at bay! We are 5 family members who are addicted to TrueCurcumin and will never stop taking it daily!
Joints feel smoother and getting out of bed is a glide rather than a slow warm-up as I make my way across the bedroom. A definite improvement I can feel. If the additional benefits attributed to this product are in force that will be a bonus!
I just started taking this product because it was referred to me by a friend. I am looking forward to seeing a difference in my over all health. I am a very active 70+ woman and need good a supplement that can support my active daily life.
I have been using Nature City BCD Curcumin for a year. My mother and brother are using it. Within a few weeks my co-workers were asking me what I was using since I was moving better. This stuff works! I tried using another brand of curcumin that was cheaper and ended up throwing it away. I hope to never be out of NatureCity BDC curcumin!
