Turmeric or curcumin? What’s the difference?
Turmeric is the plant that provides curcumin. A typical turmeric rhizome is about 2-5% curcumin, so taking an unstandardized, powdered turmeric root product means that you would need to take hundreds of capsules to get a clinically studied amount of curcumin.
CuraPro features unique PATENTED BCM-95/Curcugreen Curcumin with 27 human clinical trials (over 60 published studies).

Frequently Asked Questions for CuraPro®:
How is CuraPro different than Curamin® with DLPA? Can Itake them both together?
CuraPro contains BCM-95®/Curcugreen Curcumin and is our all-curcumin product. Curamin with DLPA also contains BCM-95/Curcugreen Curcumin along with BOS-10™/BosPure® Boswellia, DL–phenylalanine (DLPA), and ginger as a combination for inflammation and joint pain.* It is perfectly fine to use them together, according to your individual preferences.
How does the curcumin in CuraPro compare to other turmeric products?
The most active compound in turmeric, and the one associated with most of its health benefits, is
curcumin. However, turmeric contains as little as 2% curcumin, meaning many grams of turmeric
(equivalent to hundreds of capsules) need to be taken to equal the amount of curcumin in one CuraPro.
So, not only does CuraPro contain more curcuminoids in a single softgel than anyturmeric product, it has been proven in 27 human clinical trials (over 60 published studies).
