If you've already made the decision to start using turmeric for pain, then you are already well on your way to reducing your inflammation, helping wounds heal, and alleviating your arthritis symptoms and indigestion.
The next step is learning more about how to buy our turmeric supplement.
This page will provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision and find the best turmeric supplement to meet your needs.
We have already established that, while ordinary turmeric is great for cooking and does confer some mild health benefits, it is nowhere near as effective as concentrated turmeric extract at relieving arthritis pain and indigestion.
Those who are buying turmeric primarily for the taste can purchase powder, which typically contains between two and four percent curcuminoids – but doesn’t have anything to aid in absorption. In this form, it can be added to water, tea, or other liquids for mild health benefits. Many people even add it to their soups and sauces for improved taste and improved health over time.
If you're looking to take turmeric as a supplement, however, the best option is to purchase turmeric capsules with high levels of curcumin and Bioperine® such as Me First Living’s Premium Turmeric Curcumin supplement.
We've already discussed the importance of buying products that feature turmeric extract instead of the less-concentrated turmeric powder, but what else should you be looking for?
That's a good question since there are a wide variety of different supplements out there on today's markets.
We believe the best turmeric supplement will be one that is vegan, gluten-free, and GMO-free.
The choice to go organic is really one that is best up to readers. The reality is that buying organic is more of a preference. Non-organic turmeric extracts typically offer the same health benefits, though buying organic does help ensure that the extract is higher quality.
Just about every grocery store sells turmeric powder as a culinary spice, but few of them sell turmeric extract - and even fewer sell capsules that contain both turmeric extract and Bioperine®.
If you want to take turmeric for improved health, you have two options. You can either buy it at a few select retailers, or you can buy it online.
Buying it online is much easier, especially if you are struggling with mobility problems caused by your arthritis pain. So long as you buy it from a trustworthy producer like Me First Living, turmeric capsules purchased online will have the exact same effects as those bought in a health food store.
In fact, typically these supplements work better as they don’t have to produce minimum quantities required by the retailer, and they won’t be sitting on a grocery store shelf for a year or two at a time.
There's no reason to worry about the turmeric powder found in food, even if you have existing health conditions other than arthritis or indigestion. If you are using turmeric for pain and have other health conditions, you should speak with your doctor before taking turmeric supplements.
Almost everyone can take large doses of turmeric safely, but in rare cases, it can interact with other supplements or medications. If you have diabetes, kidney stones, gallbladder disease, a bleeding disorder, or stomach ulcers, you should consult your doctor before beginning your new supplement routine.
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should also consult a medical professional before taking turmeric extract, as should people who are planning for upcoming surgeries.
Most of the time, your doctor will tell you it's fine, but it's still a good idea to get the go-ahead from a medical professional and make sure they know that you will be taking new a new supplement.
