    NOW products (Ashwagandha+Curcumin)


    I thought you guys carried Now Ashwagandha?

    Also any Idea when you'll be getting more curcumin?

    Don't buy NOW Curcumin, it doesn't have bioperine.

    I'm glad I saw this thread. I was looking for this last night and could have sworn that I had seen it on NP before. Anybody remember the price?

    You have your priorities wrong if you're waiting for the budget or you need a line of credit. Anyoen taking curcumin must take bioperine as it greatly improves absorption. You can get bioperine caps so no need for a blend. And where's my astragalus?

    Curcumin is not absorbed very well by the body unless bioperine is included with it.

    The odd thing is that Sabinsa (IIRC) holds patents on both curcumin and bioperine, and they're the ones who discovered that bioperine is needed for curcumin absorbtion. Hmm, trying to sell two products at once?

    I've seen it stated many other places, though.

    The price on Ashwagandha is decent. I'll try to have some in by the end of next week or the week after.

    They do not have a patent on piperine, just a trademark for the name "bioperine" which is piperine. EDIT (I see that supposedly do have this patent, but I had also heard that it wasn't patented.. so I need to verify) I believe they have some use patents and/or extraction process patents for some curcumin derivatives, but they don't control curcumin be any means. In addition, unless the use of curcumin is novel, any patents on traditional health uses will (or already) go down as there was a patent of tumeric (the source for curcumin) and it was shot down due to the historic use of the plant in india. ie, the patent holders had nothing novel and weren't the originators of "the art."
