"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.

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.

I have had a residential cleaning business for 12 years which I do myself. After cleaning 7-10 houses per week I would find my body to be very stiff and painful. I have been taking 5 tumeric capsules per day for a couple of weeks and have no pain left.. only in my right wrist in which case I am right handed. I eat fairly healthy so this is the only new regimen I have started to attribute my improvements to. Tumeric obviously targets inflammation surely and many other things as well. This is not a hoax and give it a try!! You will feel a marked improvement yourself I am sure.

I have had XXXXXX 24 years, in XXXXX for 22 of those years until late 2011. I researched for natural ways to XXXX or get back XXXXX; that's when I found Organic India's Turmeric! Along with my prescription from my Dr., diet, exercise and daily use of Organic India's Turmeric Formula, Holy Basil & Psyllium Husk I have been able to get it almost completely under control! I am grateful and take nothing for granted! (this post has been edited by ORGANIC INDIA to comply with Federal law.)

This is really a stellar price for this, especially as it is the best turmeric supplement I have seen. It is so good for you! Kosher, GMO free, gluten free, and all the best effects for your body! Better digestion, better skin and hair, and less joint pain. You get a lot of capsules in one bottle, and at a price everyone can afford.

I am an avid supported of supplements, especially in a time when most people do not get what they need from food anymore. I would highly recommend this organic turmeric supplement as a part of your daily routine! It has helped my digestion and bloating, and my fingers don't puff up as much anymore. I even notice less soreness in my joints and muscles after tough workouts! Better skin, mood and appearance makes this a wonderful supplement.

I have shopped other places for an organic turmeric supplement, but this is the best. This brand is great and the site offers a good price. I like to run on trails, and it can be hard on my joints, but this has helped with swelling and soreness, along with other good benefits. I have more energy, I have less stomach issues, and my skin looks 10 times better! I would most definitely suggest shopping here for this supplement.
