Finding the Most Effective Turmeric
At USA Consumer Report we have recently been getting a huge number of requests for us to review the newest supplement craze to sweep the nation, Turmeric Curcumin, which many nutritionists, doctors, and scientists have actually called “life-changing.” The buzz all began when a famous Daytime TV Doctor started praising Turmeric Curcumin, a plant which grows in Southeast Asia, for being a pure and natural way to not only improve mood and manage depression, but as a natural side effect free anti-inflammatory, pain reducer, anti-oxidant and detoxifier. With claims like that we felt it was time for us to investigate.
Our initial survey found an overwhelming amount of positive reviews from everyday people using Turmeric Curcumin supplements, users consistently were reporting:
- dramatic relief from the painful swelling of inflammation
- reduction and, in many cases, reversal of the signs of premature aging
- massive positive spikes in mood and energy levels
- immediate and long-lasting relief from rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and osteoarthritis (OA)
With absolutely zero of the side effects that you would have from over-the-counter medications.
The only problem was that there were so many turmeric supplements on the market! As always, supplement companies had gotten wind of the growing evidence behind turmeric and had flooded the market with countless new products.
That’s when we at USA Consumer Report decided that it was time to sort through the countless turmeric brands and find the ones that worked.
Our Research Approach
First, we ran a complete analysis on each product ourselves to make sure that they contained the right ingredients at the effective dosage. This step alone eliminated nearly half of the turmeric brands we tested; it turned out that many companies either included ineffective, low doses of turmeric or simply lied about the amount of turmeric in their product.
Then, we surveyed thousands of people who had actually used these products – so we could understand the full experience users had with these brands. Lastly, we took a close look at online marketplaces like Amazon and Ebay to see what actual customers were saying about each specific brand, carefully noting everything from how companies treated their customers to how long it took users to see real results.
We then combined all these factors so we could give complete and comprehensive reviews on the best Turmeric Curcumin supplement products available today.
Key Review Factors
Potency: For a Turmeric Curcumin supplement to be effective, it has to have at least 1,000 mg of Turmeric, containing 95% curcumin plus 5 mg of patented Bioperine® (Piperine Extract) for increased absorption.
BEWARE OF LOW GRADE TURMERIC Many companies try and cut corners by using cheap synthetic turmeric curcumin to fill their capsules. A Turmeric brand must have a daily dosage of 1000 mg. with 95% standardized curcumin and contain Biperine® to aid in absorption.
Price: We combed through thousands of reviews from online marketplaces to determine which had the most top rated reviews so we could assess which products really work. You want a company with an established reputation. If they don’t have positive reviews, avoid buying from them.
Customer Service: The quality of a company’s customer service can mean the difference between a seamless, pleasant buying experience and an absolute nightmare. You don’t want to get stuck with a company that doesn’t treat their customers with respect. Unless you’re one of the lucky few who always has things go their way, stick to companies with a solid reputation of quality customer service.
Guarantee: It is important to find a company who has a “no hassle” money-back guarantee. You don’t want to be wasting your time arguing with a company that won’t let you return a product that is not working for you. If a company won’t stand behind their product with a 90-Day Money Back Guarantee, take that as a red flag.

1MD Turmeric Curcumin is an excellent supplement chock-full of all the right stuff, and backed by 1MD’s in-house medical team. This supplement contains 1000 mg Turmeric Curcumin, 5 mg bioperine, and a veggie capsule. 1MD Turmeric Curcumin has BioPerine, which helps with absorption and bioavailability, and uses a vegetarian capsule. It’s not exactly “easy” to process returns with 1MD, and they may take up to 21 days to get the job done, which we think is a little too long.
Paragon Turmeric Curcumin came in 3rd place. What we like about this product is that just like BlueBiology Turmeric it does contain 100% pure Turmeric Curcumin, however the capsules are very large and they may be difficult to swallow for some people. Paragon has been in business for a long time and they are a reputable company. They also have good customer service, with mostly positive reviews.
Stop Aging Now Curcumin2K came in fourth. Stop aging is also a reputable company, however their Turmeric has some additional ingredients. We were unable to confirm the effectiveness of their product due to the lack of honest reviews and testimonials. We also highly recommend to buy Turmeric Supplements from companies that offer at least a 90-day return.
Curcu-Gel Ultra came in 5th place. What we like about this product is that just like BlueBiology Turmeric Curcumin it does contain 100% pure Turmeric Curcumin, however it only contains 650mg of turmeric per serving. It is less than the recommended dosage by studies done on Turmeric. Health Thru Nutrition has been in business for a long time and they are a reputable company. They also have a good customer service, with some positive reviews.
P.S. Even though BlueBiology is the best Turmeric Curcumin we have found, we would still love to hear about other Turmeric Supplements that you have tried! If you have had a great experience with a Turmeric supplement that we did not cover in this article, let us know!
