Turmeric root contains many active compounds, but only one group, the so called curcuminoids, has the greatest health benefits that have been researched so far.
The group of curcuminoids consists of curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin. Out of these Curcumin is the key active ingredient with most health benefits.
Curcumin itself just makes up around 2-5% from turmeric extract, so taking an unstandardized, powdered turmeric product means that very large amounts would be required to get even a small amount of the active ingredient-curcumin.
Moreover, regular Curcumin extracts have a very low rate of absorbtion, usually goes through our bodies without being absorbed in the blood stream hence can't give much of health advantages.
The solution to the bio-availability issue was to develop the standardized extracts with a curcuminoid group of up to 95% that offer high bio-availability and high rate of absorbtion with stable blood concentration even after 8 hours.
