Using Turmeric Occasionally Isn’t Enough — How To Maximize Benefits

by Jerald Dyson

Two things are important when it comes to an ideal turmeric supplement: adequate dosage and optimal bioavailability. A daily turmeric supplement that prioritizes these criteria will give you the best chance of experiencing turmeric’s many benefits.* 

For dosage, look for at least 500 milligrams. According to registered dietitian Jess Cording, M.S., R.D., CDN, anywhere from 500 to 2,000 milligrams of turmeric can deliver benefits.* 

As we mentioned above, curcuminoids typically have poor bioavailability—they’re metabolized fast and often eliminated by the body before you have a chance to use them. The delivery method and ingredients of a supplement can ensure optimal bioavailability. 

To make sure your supplement delivers curcumin in a form that’s easily absorbable (and usable in your body), make sure piperine (from black pepper extract) is also included in the list of ingredients.* 

If you’re familiar with eating turmeric for your health, you may know that pairing turmeric with black pepper is recommended by the experts. This is because the bioactive compound piperine in black pepper helps to enhance the bioavailability of curcumin (by about 2,000%!).* 

Lucky for you, mbg’s turmeric potency+ checks off both of these boxes with botanical ingredients ginger root extract and piperine alongside full-spectrum turmeric root extract (as Acumin™) to help you reap turmeric’s vast, whole-body benefits.*
