What Are Curcumin and Turmeric Root?
If you’re not familiar with turmeric and curcumin by now, allow me to introduce you. Turmeric is a root or rhizome plant native to India. Similar to ginger, with a more pungent flavor, and bright reddish-orange flesh, turmeric is widely used in cooking and medicine throughout the world. Most of us here in the west think of turmeric as a common kitchen spice, however, turmeric root has gained a great deal of fame lately because of its many amazing health benefits. Chock full of carotenoids, curcuminoids, and essential oils called ‘tumerones,’ it turns out turmeric root is brimming with beneficial compounds.
Most Turmeric Root and Curcumin Supplements Don’t Work
There are a lot of turmeric supplements on the market... In fact, the number of turmeric supplements on the market has skyrocketed in recent years. However, almost ALL of them are not at all effective. The active ingredients in turmeric root are powerful phytochemicals called curcumionoids. Turmeric root is actually only 2 - 5% curcuminoids by weight, and is also very low in the essential oil compounds. Because of this, most turmeric root supplements on the market either don’t contain or are lacking in the bioactive components of turmeric that offer all of turmeric’s wonderful health benefits.
Why Liposomal Curcumin?
Did you know that most curcumin is notoriously not absorbable with very poor bioavailability? That’s right, curcumin has famously poor absorption, biodistribution, metabolism, and bioavailability. Many curcumin supplements not only have very low percentages of the useful bioactive compounds, they’re also very poorly absorbed. What little is able to be absorbed is almost always immediately metabolized by your liver.
Liposomal Curcumin Is 5.6x More Bioavailable Than Other Curcumin Supplements!
Introducing liquid Micelle Liposomal Curcumin for maximum absorption and systemic bioavailability. I knew I had to do something to improve this situation, and I finally have a solution. Micelle Liposomal Curcumin is the world’s most absorbable and bioavailable curcumin. First off, with a potency of 500mg of real, naturally extracted curcumin per serving, it’s already miles ahead of weaker, less effective formulas. Second, and most importantly, my Liposomal Curcumin solves the problem of poor absorbability and bioavailability by surrounding the curcumin molecule with a thin layer of healthy fat from omega-9 sunflower oil rich in phosphatidylcholine. This micelle ‘pocket’ creates a liposome that is both readily absorbed by your intestinal lining, as well as protected from metabolism by your liver so that it may travel freely throughout your body to the cells and tissues that need it the most.
My Liposomal Curcumin Is Best In Class
So how well does it actually work? I’m glad you asked. This physician-designed Liposomal Curcumin actually provides hundreds of times more bioavailable curcumin than many plain turmeric root supplements and absorbs at least 5.6x better than the very best standardized curcumin supplements available on the market today.
Liposomal Curcumin Supports An Optimal Inflammatory Response
My Liposomal Curcumin formula supports a healthy inflammatory response. The right form of curcumin supports a healthy inflammation response in a variety of ways. Not only does it positively impact your genetic expression in the genes that regulate systemic inflammation, it supports the production of Treg cells that favorably affect cytokine production, as well as acts as a free radical quencher by neutralizing inflammation-causing free radicals throughout your body.
Curcumin supports your inflammatory response in several other ways as well:
- It’s been shown to positively impact inflammation mediating compounds such as NF-κB and COX2 that can veer out of balance due to diet, metabolic issues, chronic illness, injuries, and genetic mutations.
Liposomal Curcumin increases the activity of antioxidants in your body, such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GSH) and lipid peroxides.
Scavenging various forms of free radicals, including reactive oxygen and nitrogen species.
- Liposomal Curcumin inhibits certain enzymes, such as lipoxygenase/cyclooxygenase and xanthine hydrogenase/oxidase similar to the chain-breaking antioxidant Vitamin E, scavenging free radicals and breaking them apart so they can be transported out of your body as waste.
Curcumin Is One of the Most Powerful Free Radical Fighters
Looking for the perfect supplement to provide powerful defensive support against free radicals in order to support healthy aging and immune function? Look no further than my Liposomal Curcumin. In fact, curcumin is one of the most powerful free radical fighters in the entire world. Curcumin has been shown to have an oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) score of 1,500,000! Compare that to almost any common antioxidant you can think of and you’ll quickly discover that curcumin blows them all out of the water when it comes to free radical quenching power. Squashing free radicals before they can cause damage to your DNA and the collagen matrix that supports your skin is critical to support healthy aging and youthful-looking skin. It’s also important for immune function as free radicals can cause systemic inflammation throughout the body, over activating the immune system and potentially leading to immune dysfunction.
The Curcumin In Turmeric Root Supports Optimal Gut Health
My Curcumin formula supports vibrant gut health and optimal intestinal barrier function. High-quality, bioavailable curcumin such as the micelle liposomal form in my Liposomal Curcumin formula has been lauded and praised for its ability to support digestive tract health. In fact, curcumin promotes optimal digestive health in multiple ways. Curcumin supports bile production and bile flow which positively impacts liver function, digestion and nutrient solubility. Curcumin also supports inflammation balance in the intestinal tract, which benefits the mucosal lining of the gut as well as an ideally functioning intestinal barrier.
Who Is This Turmeric Root Supplement For?
Liposomal Curcumin is perfect for anyone who:
- Wants to relieve occasional aches and pains caused by inflammation
- Has health challenges caused by chronic inflammation
- Has or is currently dealing with gut or immune issues
- Has tried other curcumin supplements without success
- Cannot tolerate swallowing capsules or prefers a liquid form
- Does not eat enough fresh fruits and vegetables and would like to support healthy aging with a supplement teeming with free radical fighters

Doesn’t curcumin have to be taken with black pepper to be effective?
No. While black pepper extract (piperine) is often added to inferior, lower quality curcumin supplements to promote intestinal permeability and make up for their poor absorption, I designed my Liposomal Curcumin to be the most absorbable form of curcumin on the market today. The micelle liposomal delivery form drastically increases its solubility and bioavailability. This is excellent news for those sensitive to black pepper, or who are searching for the absolute highest quality curcumin complex available.
Is Dr. Myers’ Liposomal Curcumin formula safe for children, pregnant women, and nursing mothers?
My Curcumin complex has no ingredients that are contraindicated for children, pregnant women, or breastfeeding mothers. While it is perfectly safe for most people, I still recommend working with a qualified healthcare provider so that they can take your other supplements, medications, and health history into account when deciding if my Liposomal Curcumin is right for you or your child.
What time of day should I take Dr. Myers’ Liposomal Curcumin? Should I take it with or without food?
This solubilized, micelle liposomal form of curcumin is readily absorbable by your body, and does not need to be taken with food in order to be efficiently utilized. Therefore, I recommend it be taken on an empty stomach or between meals so as to not have your meal and digestive process interfere with the structure of absorption of my Liposomal Curcumin. If you wish, you can mix Liposomal Curcumin into a smoothie or yogurt, or even a plain glass of water.
Will Liposomal Curcumin stain my countertops, floors, or clothes if it’s spilled?
Because my Liposomal Curcumin is so potent and full of active curcumin (that’s what gives turmeric root its vivid orange color), it can stain surfaces. Please take extra caution with this product and clean it up right away if you happen to spill any.
Where does the orange flavor in Liposomal Curcumin come from?
The delicious 'orange popsicle’ flavor of my Liposomal Curcumin is thanks in part to orange oil. Orange oil is an essential oil found in the rind of oranges; the oil is cold pressed or centrifuged from orange rinds to be used in foods and supplements.

Why Buy from Amy Myers MD?
Finally, supplements from a source you can actually trust. After receiving my medical degree (M.D.) at Louisiana State University, I completed my residency in Emergency Medicine at the University of Maryland Medical Center. In 2012, I became a certified functional medicine physician, so I could help my patients get to the root cause of their health problems.
Since then, I’ve gone on to write 2 New York Times bestselling books, as well as the Amazon #1 bestseller The Autoimmune Solution Cookbook. I’ve been a guest on the Dr. Oz Show 7 times, have starred in my own PBS special, and been featured in dozens of television, radio, and magazine interviews.
Many other supplement brands are run by fly-by-night operations looking to turn a quick buck. Not so with Amy Myers MD® — it’s one of the only health and wellness brands owned and operated by a real medical doctor (that’s me)!
You’ll know exactly what you’re getting because all products are 3rd party tested and verified. You may be surprised to know that the supplement industry is not regulated by the FDA and it’s up to the manufacturer to ensure they’re delivering high-quality products that contain what they say they do.
All of the supplements I carry in my store carry the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) seal, meaning they have been 3rd party tested for purity, quality, potency, and composition, so you can rest assured that you’re getting the key nutrients you’re paying for and that your body needs.
High-potency, pharmaceutical grade supplements to maximize value and impact.
Because I am a licensed physician, the supplements I carry are pharmaceutical grade, meaning they are higher quality and typically higher dosages than you can find in a health food store or online retailer.
This is vital because cost per unit is a key metric to look at when choosing supplements. If you look at a supplement such as my 100 Billion probiotic, you will find that you may need to take nearly an entire bottle of other probiotics to achieve the same potency.
My supplements contain no gluten, dairy, soy, GMOs, preservatives, dyes, or toxic ingredients. You’re not eating these inflammatory foods or toxins so why would you want them in your supplements?! I source all of the ingredients in my supplements from pure, clean sources.
There are a few incredibly rare exceptions where products contain trace amounts of dairy or egg because of the way they need to be formulated, however they are clearly marked on the product page and are in such low quantities that even my very sensitive patients typically have not had a reaction.
