BioPerine® is a bioavailability enhancer. BioPerine® is a patented*** standardized piperine extract obtained from the fruits of the Piper nigrum L. (black pepper) and/or Piper longum L. (long pepper) plants that are cultivated in the damp, nutrient-rich soil regions of south India. The delicate pepper berries are hand harvested just prior to ripening and then sun dried to assure optimum maturity and quality.
BioPerine®, has been clinically tested with several nutrient groups including fat soluble vitamins (β-carotene) , water soluble vitamins (vitamin B6, vitamin C), selenoamino acid (L(+)-Selenomethionine), Coenzyme Q10 and shown to significantly enhance the bioavailability of supplemented nutrients through increased absorption. Herbal extracts such as curcumin are also absorbed better when co-administered with BioPerine®.
Thus LeanGard® represents a bioavailable composition of natural extracts with clinically proven efficacy and documented safety in supporting healthy body composition and weight management.
