Ayurveda had many names for Turmeric including “Gives delight to the heart,” but today it is often called the ultimate superfood. Our Turmeric is grown in India to take full advantage of the historical relationship between the plant and its native soils.* Researchers have described this plant as a gift from nature supporting the joints, liver, immune system, heart, GI tract and more.*
Turmeric is the plant name. Curcuminoids are inside the plant. One of the curcuminoids is called curcumin. So in other words, curcumin is a curcuminoid that’s in Turmeric.
How come there’s no black pepper in your Turmeric? I thought Turmeric needed black pepper to absorb.
Turmeric has been working for thousands of years with nothing added. Absorption studies and bioavailability studies are interesting to look at, but the only thing that tells you if a product works is to clinically study it on the final outcome. We’re very confident our Turmeric 95 with Curcumin works effectively without additional ingredients.
We can only recommend the dose on the bottle, which is our clinically-studied effective dose. Taking more or less of an herbal supplement than recommended should be discussed with your health care provider.
Can I take this product along with my prescription medication or my other supplements? Can I combine them? Will there be side effects?
Our product has not been studied alongside or against your prescription medication or alongside other supplements. We would be unable to answer that question. Please make sure your health care provider is aware of all the herbal supplements you are taking.
Regulations enacted by the United States Food and Drug Administration say that sellers of dietary supplements can’t make any claims about their products that suggest the treatment, diagnosis, prevention, or mitigation of disease. This is called the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) of 1994. Because your question suggests you are trying to treat a condition and find relief from symptoms, any answer to that regard would fall outside of the legal boundaries that regulate our industry. What we can say is that our products are formulated to support the normal function of organ systems and are rigorously studied for purity, safety and efficacy.
We don’t recommend any herbal product, ours or anyone else’s, to pregnant or nursing moms. If you’re pregnant or nursing, any supplement you take should first be cleared with your health care provider.
