BioPerine® is the only product sourced out of piperine (black pepper) to obtain a patented status for its ability to increase the bioavailability of nutritional compounds.
Secondly, it is the only source from piperine to have undergone clinical studies in the U.S. to substantiate its safety and efficacy for nutritional use.
A standardized extract from the fruit of Piper nigrum L (black pepper) or Piper longum L (long pepper).
“Neither curcumin nor turmeric taken orally is well absorbed unless taken with black pepper or piperine (Bioperine®), a constituent of black pepper.” Dr. Andrew Weil.
The dose of Bioperine® should not be lower than 5mg per 500mg of curcumin C3 for scientifically proven results.

How does BioPerine® work?
The metabolic process that generates energy at the cellular level in the human body is called thermogenesis. Though thermogenesis has been identified as a key factor in maintaining weight loss, it has also been identified as playing an integral role in utilizing the daily food and nutrients that the human body consumes. It sets in motion the mechanisms that lead to digestion and subsequent gastrointestinal absorption. Piperine, in the patented form of BioPerine® enhances the body's natural thermogenic activity-hence the term Thermonutrient®.
This enhancement may be explained as a means of increasing the thermal energy sufficient to "power up" the mechanism related to thermogenesis. This in turn results in increased metabolic processes that creates a "demand" for "supply" of a broad range of nutrients that contribute to metabolism, i.e. vitamins, minerals, herbals, amino acids, etc. It is as if BioPerine® activates a metabolic paddle wheel, of sorts, that selectively provides a more efficient mode of nutrient transportation into the blood.
