Curcu-Gel Ultra is an excellent choice in curcumin supplement, especially for those that prefer swallowing softgels and are not too concerned with amount per serving.
Curcu-Gel Ultra uses a non-traditional oil, lecithin, and triglyceride blend to create their signature turmeric “gel.” Although it doesn’t have any ingredients that we have seen specifically detract from effectiveness, the “gel” also does not contribute to effectiveness or absorption.
Curcu-Gel does not contain BioPerine, which helps the body absorb and utilize curcuminoids. If you decide to go with Curcu-Gel, you will want to take a BioPerine supplement with it as well. We typically recommend choosing a turmeric supplement that already includes BioPerine, to avoid any confusion or waste.
With 650 mg of curcumin and essential oils of turmeric rhizome, Curcu-Gel boasts a 500 mg total curcuminoid complex. It has also provided a study on the benefits of turmeric curmunin, which is available to read online. We always appreciate it when a supplement is backed scientifically.
Curcu-Gel has many positive reviews among it’s customers, and seems overall to be well-received. Like most high-quality Turmeric-Curcumin supplements, you have to take two pills to get a full serving. Some users reported the capsules were excessively big, however this experience will vary from user to user.
The majority of negative reviews focused on a lack of desired results, rather than any negative side effects or undesired results, making it appear to be harmless.
