Does this product contain cheap synthetic fillers?
Some brands add artificial fillers to cut cost to offer cheap products and sell more. You should never purchase cheap products when it comes to supplements.

Has this 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. [10]

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. Vegetarian capsules dissolve appropriately and show better results. [4]

An effective Turmeric supplement should contain between 1000 – 1300mg of pure Turmeric Curcumin standardized to 95% and 10mg of BioPerine/Piperine. [2]

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. [2]

  • Only buy supplements that are manufactured in the United States. This way you are sure these companies must comply with the stricter regulations.
  • Do not purchase cheap brands, filled with harmful fillers; these brands should not be trusted.

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