Curcumin also has brain-boosting power, increasing levels of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF). BDNF is a known growth hormone that functions in the brain. All three factor toward improving your health, the greatest benefit due to the anti-inflammatory properties. Almost every chronic western disease is due to low-level inflammation. Unfortunately, curcumin is poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. Fortunately, this formula also includes Black Pepper (piperine), a natural substance that enhances the absorption of curcumin by 2000%.
