5 Quality Turmeric Curcumin – How To Choose & What To Look For (2024)

Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is an ancient spice. Its therapeutic potential has been known for nearly 4,000 years, and today it continues to be relevant. In the past 25 years, there has been over 3,000 publications on turmeric’s benefits. (Sources 1,3)

Curcumin is a yellow pigment abundant in turmeric rhizome (underground stem). It is the main bioactive compound responsible for turmeric’s purported benefits. (Sources 1,4

The popularity of turmeric has led to hundreds of brands flooding the marketplace; however not all supplements are created equal!

What To Look For

Has your brand been third-party tested?
You should never buy supplements that don’t have Certificate of Analysis. The studies should be conducted in labs that are not affiliated with the manufacturer. These labs verify the product for safety and potency.
 
Does your supplement contain cheap synthetic fillers?
Some brands add artificial fillers to cut cost to offer cheap products. Some of these cheap fillers we found were additives and artificial coloring. You should never purchase cheap products when it comes to supplements.
 
No return policy or customer service
A reputable supplement company will offer 100% money-back guarantee policy and provide customer support through phone number and email. We noticed many formulas out there are just copies of the top-rated brands. They don’t offer an easy refund policy or don’t even have a phone number to prove they are real.
 
Avoid Subscription Auto-Billing Offers –  unfortunately many brands use this trick to charge your card without your authorization, even if a customer returns the product. One trick is they charge your card even 6 months after you made your initial purchases, which most people forgot about it. If you’re happy with the service, then it’s best to make another purchase in the future.
