DISCUSSION

More about Bioperine

Casual thought may lead you to believe if you take more of a nutrient, more will be available for use by the body. Of course, this is not necessarily true; in fact, more from less is better and ultimately safer — as both a philosophy and a practice.

Fortunately, we can now get more effectiveness from the nutrients we consume with Bioperine. Based on clinical data, having Bioperine in the digestive system with supplemented nutrients results in enhanced absorption. Studies show that when Bioperine is taken with other nutrients, it significantly increases the absorption of those nutrients.

Bioperine is a standardized extract from the fruits of Piper nigrum L (black pepper, a common household spice) or Piper longum L (long pepper). It contains a minimum piperine content of 95% compared to the 3 to 9% and 3 to 5% found in raw forms of Piper nigrumand and Piper longum respectively. Bioperine may be administered with various nutrients to assist in the uptake and utilization of those nutrients.

Bioperine is the only source of piperine to obtain patented status for its ability to increase the bioavailability of nutritional compounds. Bioperine is also the only source of piperine to undergo clinical studies in the U.S. to substantiate its safety and efficacy for nutritional use. When Bioperine was administered orally to healthy humans in a dose of 5 mg per person per day, the serum levels of different tested nutrients significantly increased by up to 60%.

NOTES ON USAGE

Bioperine may be administered with various nutrients to assist in the uptake and utilization of those nutrients.
