Turmeric is known for being a zesty spice that beautifies every food it touches, but it’s just was well-regarded for its medicinal properties. Its secret? Curcumin is the main active ingredient. It’s a strong antioxidant and has anti-inflammatory properties to boot. It can alleviate pain, improve liver function, and possibly reduce your chances of cancer.
Turmeric is so healthy many manufacturers have ‘encapsulated’ the idea in supplement form. If you think you might want more curcumin than you are getting currently, check out these health supplements using Turmeric.
1. Vimerson Health Turmeric Curcumin
Douglas writes: “I tried this product, and after about two weeks, I started noticing a tremendously wonderful change! I have no been taking it for about 6 months, and love it! I don’t have to take any other medication, and have none of the side effects of those other meds. ”
2. Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Curcumin
Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Curcumin is a high-dose supplement. Pregnant or nursing mothers, children under the age of 18, and individuals with known medical conditions should consult their physician. $8.24
Cathie Says: “This is a wonderful brand of turmeric, and I consider myself an expert. I’ve been taking 2000 mg daily, of turmeric for over two years now. It’s a lot easier to do that when I don’t have to take so many capsules.”
3. Herbal Hearts Turmeric Curcumin
Richard says: “I am a 76 year old woman and I go to the gym almost daily. I developed bursitus in my right hip. Instead of getting an injection for the pain, a friend recommended trying Tumeric Curcumin. In just a few days the pain was gone and I returned to my usual workout schedule. I have recommended tumeric to friends and I am so happy with the results. My husband has been taking tumeric curcumin as well and has had good results.”
4. Prosper Advanced Turmeric Curcumin
Theresa says: “Bought these for my mom who can’t take anti-inflammatory pills due to donating a kidney to my father. She has also had reconstructive spine surgery so on some days she’s feeling a bit inflamed. She was originally using a brand she got at Costco but they weren’t vegan and it’s was almost 2 bucks a pill. I bought her these and she says she loves them and feels a huge difference compared to the Costco ones and her overall inflammation. Def recommend these to people who can’t take anti inflammatory medications.”
5. Gaia Herbs Turmeric Supreme
One user says: “While I use the Gaia Herbs brand for a couple of other supplements and have been extremely happy with their quality, I avoided buying Gaia Herbs’ version of turmeric since the other brands I was using were less expensive. I decided to try one bottle’s worth to see if it made a difference. It did! Several weeks after switching brands to the Gaia Herbs version, my knee pain improved dramatically…often to the extent that I don’t even notice the pain (haven’t been without knee pain in 2 years).”
6. Natrogix Turmeric Curcumin
One user says: “My doctor recommended I take Tumeric capsules for my knee pain which is from an old injury I had many years ago. This stuff works! I have been taking it since August 2017 and I have not had any issues with my knee. It takes a week or so to start working when you first start taking them. Also, this is a great company. They came with a coupon to get a free bottle which I received very quickly along with some other freebies.”
7. Superfood Harvest Turmeric Curcumin
One user says: “I’ve tried this new Tumeric Curcumin with Bioperine for several months now as I switch between 2-3 brands every now and then. Thus far, it’s given very good results for my specific needs. I typically take 2/day – one in the a.m. and one in the p.m.”
8. Science Natural Supplements Turmeric Curcumin
One user says: “I have been using the Science Natural Supplements Tumeric with Bioperine for several months and can attest that it really is good at keeping inflamation away and your system clean for fighting viruses and everyday toxins. We had a nasty bug at the office that had everyone coughing and sneezing their heads off – I never showed any symptoms and didn’t miss a day of work. Good stuff!!!”
9. TRUCURC Pure Premium Turmeric Curcumin
Taylor says: “I have ordered other turmeric brands in the past, but TRUCURC is the best I have tried thus far. I was impressed to read that most other generic turmeric supplements contain only 3-10% curcumin (curcuminoids), but TRUCURC contains a concentrated blend of 95% curcuminoids, so it’s much more potent. Certified organic is also a plus! I feel great taking TRUCURC and have ordered a bottle for my parents as well. This is the brand to buy since it’s definitely the best I’ve found!”
10. Nested Naturals Turmeric
Carol says: “For the first time in a decade I’m pain-free. I take this in combination with the Nested Naturals Magnesium and for me, it’s the combination of the two that works. I won’t be without this again!”
11. Organic India Turmeric Formula
Rob says: “My wife is a breast cancer survivor, she got into taking a number of supplements while going through treatment…she does a great deal of research on everything and has been buying everything via Amazon. I was with her through everything and take the same supplements (we’re a team), she wanted me to do what she’s doing and I had no problem doing so. No issue with any of the supplements, take a number of different one and will use the same review for all…no issues, good quality and everything we’re taking have hundreds of positive reviews.”
12. Me First Living Turmeric Curcumin
Cathy says: “I chose this product to see if it would help relieve the pain in my hips from bursitis. I started with 1 capsule per morning and again at night for a couple of days and not much relief. I then took 2 in the morning and 2 at night and NO HIP PAIN. !!!!! OMG!!!!! I have been suffering with this pain for awhile and FINALLY RELIEF. ”
13. Peasant Turmeric Toothpaste
One user says: “WOW! I was skeptical about this whole charcoal craze, but I gave it a shot anyway. I’ve tried every whitening product out there from strips to trays to professional whitening at the dentist. I can’t speak for you but I know my teeth were badly stained from years of coffee, smoking, and red wine, and this is the only product I’ve seen results with so quickly. This worked like a magic eraser.”
14. Alka-White Alkalizing Mouthwash and Toothpaste in One- Tumeric
Alka-White Alkalizing Mouthwash and Toothpaste in One- Tumeric comes with free salivary pH testing kit. $19.99.
Allie says: “Great product! Havent been using for very long however, I immediately notice my teeth are whiter. I also check my acidity level before and after and I must say, huge improvement. Looking forward to continued use and results!”
15. Tear Drops Turmeric Tea
One user says: “Love the strong ginger flavor with a little bit of cane sugar for sweetness. Theses drops save you the time of soaking a teabag by devolving instantly in hot water. I add a squeeze of lemon and it settles my stomach in the morning and makes me feel good. There will always be a little sediment from the ginger no matter how much you stir, but drink up-it’s ginger and very good for you.”
