"If I had only one single herb to depend upon for all possible health and dietary needs, I would without much hesitation choose Turmeric."
--Dr. David Frawley, Founder of the American Institute for Vedic Studies
Our organic Turmeric formula is made with the purest, 100% organic turmeric, a natural spice that contains curcuminoids, which are phytonutrients with powerful antioxidant properties that fight the damaging effects of free radicals in the body. Fortified with curcuminoid extract and organic ginger, our organic Turmeric supports important blood and liver functions, healthy joints and overall well-being, which is ultimately reflected in a radiant, supple skin.
It is only in recent years that Western scientists have increasingly recognized the medicinal properties of Turmeric. According to a 2005 article in the Wall Street Journal entitled Common Indian Spice Stirs Hope, research activity into curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, is exploding. Two hundred and fifty-six curcumin papers were published in the past year according to a search of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
"I frequently recommend turmeric supplements, and I believe whole turmeric is more effective than isolated curcumin for (healthy inflammatory function)... The bottom line that the therapeutic advantages of turmeric and curcumin are almost too numerous to list."
Dr. Andrew Weil, MD

Curcumin, the "good stuff" in turmeric, is very hard for the body to absorb. Black Pepper or Piperine are often added to increase absoprtion because it heats up the digestive system, but there are better alternatives.
Our Turmeric Formula contains Ginger, which is "hotter" than Black Pepper. Shogaol, which is produced when Ginger is dried, has a Scoville Heat Unit rating of 160,000, compared to Black Pepper which is at 100,000. Additionally, Ginger does not irritate the digestive tract, as Black Pepper can. Finally, Ginger has been shown to have epigenetic properties whose benefits are only beginning to be understood.
Turmeric parallels the actions of: glucosamine, chondroition and arnica.

I came home after visiting Kerala, India. I fell in love with drinking their chai tea available everywhere, every corner. I came home to Los Angeles and tried chai tea everywhere I went but was disappointed in the quality and taste. And then I discovered Organic India and their Masala Chai. It was perfect and for 5 years, I order by the bulk and just love it. Everyone I serve my tea at home with a little almond milk and honey and they just love it!
Thank you people of Organic Chai and their wonderful products including their Turmeric!

Tumeric has so many wonderful benefits. Why would you not take it! Inflammatory issues, joints, and a general tonic for the body. I cook with Turmeric and put it into my morning green drinks. I am very active at age 72; yoga, walking, dancing,, biking. Your body will thank you!

I started taking it 2x a day and have noticed a HUGE difference in my body retaining water. I have also noticed other benefits...such as feeling better which has led to feeling better emotionally. :)

I have taken Turmeric supplements twice a day for four years or so. I find that they increase my ability to recall details. The Organic India product appears to her superior to the "off-the-shelf" products due to its durability in one's system.
One minor example. I am 68 years old and I play the card game: Bridge. I find that I can remember the cards that were played much better. This is crucial for a bridge player when you get to the late stages of the game.

Love Organic India's Turmeric....I have been taking daily for several years for inflammation. May be a little pricy, but you get what you pay for - a product of quality....

This is one supplement that I treasure for all its gifts. It has made a major difference with my joint function, plus there are all the other benefits too. And it's organic. Not only have I been taking it for years, but I also bought some recently for a friend. And I wouldn't miss a day without taking it.
