I found this interesting. I emailed UltraCur and asked the reasoning for the way protein in there Supplement and also asked if it’s recommended to add bioperine as most curcumin supplements add it for absorption and here was their response.

Why is the whey added to the UltraCur? I see it helps absorption but why? What’s the mechanism/reasoning? Thanks

Our technology utilizes protein as a scaffold to help the curcumin absorb into your body. Think of it like a bus that is helping the body transport individual curcumin molecules into your circulation.

We use why protein because it's the fastest absorbing protein that is natural and well tolerated.

Is there any need to take bioperine with it? It seems like most curcumin supplements contain bioperine for optimal absorption.

Piperine / Black pepper actually does nothing to help absorption.

Piperine slows down the metabolism of the curcumin molecules that manage to get absorbed. This metabolic effect also affects a wide array of pharmaceutical products. Because its an artificial modification of the liver we don’t recommend using it. Also, more importantly, we don’t need it. Most people report a significant response with UltraCur within a week, half of those with in 24 hours.

Our recommendation is 2 capsules twice a day for optimal benefit.

This is only anecdotal evidence obviously, but when I took Curcumin with Bioperine for more than 3 days in a row (single tablet only), I'd develop a skin rash. Don't seem to be having that issue so far with Longvida Curcumin.

I stopped using anything with piperine in it because of its overall effect on the liver metabolism, and therefore how it changes the metabolism connected with all other supplements. As I take quite a few supplements, trying to determine its effects on those is not easily done, and it's simply easier (and far safer) to not ingest piperine at all. Since UtraCur bypasses the whole issue of curcumin absorption via its whey attachment, not only do I get curcumin with high bioavailability, I don't mess with the metabolism of anything else I take. Win and Win.
