Has higher amount of turmeric than other brands; competitive price
Reviewed in the United States on December 10, 2019
I purchased this brand of Turmeric to replace one that costs less but doesn’t work as well. I have chronic arthritis but cannot take pain meds like NSAIDs due to other health issues. This brand has a larger amount of Turmeric and Bioperine (for better absorption) in each capsule, and I have not found any other brand offering a comparable amount. Each capsule is also supplemented with ginger to aid in anti-inflammatory properties.
I still don’t get the same level of pain relief I could achieve with OTC pain medication, but the pain relief is significant and this is safe for me to take. Pain relief from turmeric seems to vary among people who use it. Keep in mind turmeric is lipid soluble and is therefore absorbed best if taken with meals. Turmeric is thought to have other benefits in helping to lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and improve kidney function, so it is ideal for me. I like that this brand is made in the U.S.A., and they recently lowered their price by a couple of dollars which makes it more price competitive. If you are unable to take conventional pain medication, this New Age Turmeric is definitely worth a try.
