Frequently Asked Questions
How does the BCM-95® curcumin in Polyphenol Defense*^ compare to other curcumin and turmeric products?
The most active compound in turmeric, and the one associated with most of its health benefits, is curcumin. However, turmeric contains as little as 2% curcumin, meaning many grams of turmeric need to be taken in order to see even marginal benefits. BCM-95 curcumin is blended with turmeric essential oil to enhance bioavailability. It also provides turmerones, compounds from the oil that are beneficial, too.
Why is it so important that the grape seed extract in Polyphenol Defense*^ is tannin-free?
While tannins are another form of proanthocyanidin (OPC) and found in many grape seed extracts, they have a high molecular weight, (large size) and can’t be easily absorbed. French grape seed extract VX1® in this formula provides only low-molecular weight OPCs, including a complex mixture of flavanolic monomers (catechin, epicatechin, epicatechin gallate) and flavanolic oligomers (dimers, trimers, and tetramers).
Should I take this product if I’m allergic to honey or pollen?
We cannot predict individual allergic responses. While we are not aware of cross allergies for honey, and the product is filtered to remove beeswax, it is always best to check with your allergy specialist.
Why take Polyphenol Defense*^? Can’t I just eat fruits and vegetables?
We absolutely encourage you to have a diet that is rich in fruits and vegetables. The addition of a supplement like Polyphenol Defense^ helps you maintain a consistent level of polyphenol compounds in your daily regimen, in addition to your healthy diet. It’s also a perfect choice for supplementation when you are traveling, or to keep at your desk for those days when a perfect diet seems out of reach.*
