To benefit from turmeric, it needs to be taken in a form that is easily absorbed by the body.
Due to its hydrophobic nature, which causes molecules to clump together when coming in to contact with water in the gut, the key is to bypass the digestive system and absorb straight into the bloodstream, explains nutritionist Kim Pearson.
“The beneficial compounds in turmeric, known as curcuminoids, are known to be notoriously poorly absorbed by the gut” says Kim.
“Therefore, to get maximum health benefits from turmeric it's best taken as an oral spray supplement, which is absorbed through the inner cheek.
Turmeric has many proven health benefits. One of the key benefits is its ability to reduce inflammation. Low level systemic inflammation can speed up ageing processes and contribute to disease progression so keeping our inflammatory responses in check can help to keep us healthy."

“Studies also show that turmeric could be helpful for digestive and liver health, for our skin health and for helping to prevent post exercise aches.”
Named ‘Best New Health and Nutrition Product’ at the Natural and Organic Products Awards 2017, BetterYou’s Turmeric Oral Spray can guarantee your daily turmeric hit in just four sprays.
The unique formulation uses Cyclodextrin Encapsulation to increase bioavailability, improve taste and reduce staining. This process ensures the turmeric remains soluble and offers a greater uptake of the three active curcuminoids, delivering it directly into the bloodstream via the soft tissue in the mouth.
Using natural ingredients, the orange flavoured formulation is suitable for vegetarians, diabetics and coeliac, and is safe to use during pregnancy.
A pilot study by Cardiff University showed that the Turmeric Spray was proven to be 4.5x more effective than digestive absorption (tablets, capsules and drops).
BetterYou is proud to deliver pioneering alternatives to tablets and capsules ensuring superior absorption.
