Some turmeric supplements are clearly better than others.
Firstly, you want to avoid supplements that contain toxic artificial additives, the likes of magnesium stearate and microcrystalline cellulose. Magnesium stearate for example, forms a biofilm in your gut, preventing the proper absorption of vitamins and minerals from your food.
It’s also important for your turmeric supplement to contain a bioavailability enhancer like bioperine (from black pepper). Studies have shown that bioperine can increase the absorption of curcumin by 2,000%!
In my opinion, a good turmeric supplement contains both whole turmeric (in the form of turmeric root extract), and curcumin (turmeric standardized to 95% curcuminoids). This means you benefit from the best of both worlds:
- You get to benefit from a big dose of concentrated curcumin, which has the most evidence-based literature supporting its health benefits, more so than any other component of turmeric.
- You get to benefit from the 300+ non-curcumin components of turmeric, which both augment curcumin’s benefits and impart their own health benefits on your body.
