Turmeric Curcumin is used to treat many health conditions. Several studies suggest that Curcumin, a substance in turmeric, eases symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.[1]

Organic Turmeric Curcumin targets free radicals, a known trigger for several human diseases. In lab tests, curcumin protects against types of colitis, stomach ulcers and high cholesterol. Based on our studies, an effective turmeric curcumin supplement can even help relieve upset stomach, diabetes, depression and viral infections.*

Warning! 46% of Turmeric Curcumin Supplements Selected for Testing Failed In Quality. Why? Because many brands use cheap turmeric mixed with synthetic harmful pesticides.

Organic Turmeric vs. Harmful Turmeric

Organic turmeric is grown without synthetic pesticides and harmful chemicals. When choosing a turmeric supplement, it is wise to purchase one that is organic. Why? Synthetic pesticides can be made from toxic chemicals that can harm your health. With organic turmeric supplements, you can be sure that you only get the benefits without having to worry about ingesting toxic chemicals.

In-House Research: our goal is to verify the ingredients used in turmeric supplements and make sure they are organic, high quality and clinically proven. Next, we conduct a survey of customers, test the top brands for label accuracy and gather honest reviews. We list out all the pros and cons of each brand and pick the top 3. Lastly; we want to make sure the companies stand by their products, so we check each brand’s guarantee, delivery time and customer service. Generally speaking, brands that offer a hassle-free 90 to 365 days money back are the ones you can trust.

Clinical research: an effective Turmeric supplement should contain between 1,000 – 1,300mg of Turmeric Curcumin standardized to 95% and 10mg of BioPerine.*

BioPerine® is sourced out of black pepper, having BioPerine “in the right place at the right time” in the digestive tract with supplemented nutrient results in enhanced absorption. A purified extract of piperine is necessary to get the increased absorption.*

Does your turmeric curcumin contain cheap synthetic fillers?
Some brands add artificial fillers to cut cost to offer cheap products. Some of these cheap fillers we found were titanium dioxide and artificial coloring. You should never purchase cheap products when it comes to supplements. You should only buy turmeric supplements that have BioPerine or black pepper extracts in them.

Has your brand been third-party tested?
You should never buy supplements that don’t have Certificate of Analysis. The studies should be conducted in labs that are not affiliated with the manufacturer. These labs verify the product for safety and potency. Only buy supplements that are backed by third-party labs and manufactured in an FDA approved facility.

What are the capsules made of?
Another important factor to consider in supplements is to make sure the capsules are made with vegetable cellulose. This ensures you the supplement is all natural. Veggie capsules dissolve appropriately and show better results.

The Result: We tested over 100+ brands of Turmeric Supplements in the market in house. We did extensive research on top brands, read consumer’s reviews and surveyed over 11,571 customers.
