Curcumin 95% Natural Turmeric Extract Powder
- Neutralize Free Radical Molecules
- Natural Antiseptic And Antibacterial Agent
- A Natural Liver Detoxifier
Turmeric, while not typically associated with the spice that is derived from it, has actually been used popularly as a healing agent and as a condiment of sorts for many years.
Turmeric is usually found in Asian countries particularly in the southeast, as well as parts of India. It is part of the family that also contains cardamom and ginger root. The chief active ingredient in Turmeric is known as Curcumin which is itself, simply a mixture of various Phytonutrients which are referred to individually as Curcuminoids. These are what give Turmeric powder its distinct deep yellow coloring. Three of the most important Curcuminoids are found in Turmeric and provide strong antioxidant power, perfect for helping to neutralize free radicals, molecules which roam around the body harming healthy cells.

Curcumin (Turmeric Extract) Powder Side Effects
As long as the suggested serving size and daily values are adhered to there should be no adverse side effects experienced by anyone interested in taking this supplement. Those that have gastrointestinal disorders or otherwise sensitive stomachs, may experience a bit of stomach upset when first introducing Curcumin into their system, but this is not unexpected. Also, those that have a ginger allergy should speak with a medical professional before taking this supplement as the two are closely related. Anyone that is on any medication that attempts to treat high blood pressure or anyone with erratic blood sugar levels like diabetics, should exercise extreme caution before attempting to use this supplement. Those that have blood clotting problems or are on any blood thinning medication, along with pregnant women should avoid this supplement altogether as it may have an adverse reaction with the medication you are taking.
Curcumin (Turmeric Extract) Powder Bioavailability
Curcumin is a deep yellow-orange color in appearance and spicy in taste. While some sources recommend that it be taken on an empty stomach, and while it may be mixed well into heated water, the actual absorption of Curcumin works best when it has been cooked with oil such as olive or coconut oil, or even butter. This works out well in the end since its spiciness and vague ginger-like flavor make it a great seasoning for many dishes, especially basic ones such as white rice or other East Asian delicacies. It even works well when dissolved into hot tea, as a flavoring.
One trick that people forget about Curcumin is that it is best absorbed in a fatty solution. If cooking is impossible or you just want to try something new, there is one drink that has a fat content that is just right for bringing out the true flavor and effectiveness of Curcumin, especially if taking the maximum daily serving level. This liquid is hot coconut milk. By mixing Curcumin in with coconut milk, this allows it to be absorbed easily by the body, and it also provides a delicious alternative to water. It goes well when taken with especially fatty meals.
- The packaging and delivery timeframe were perfect. The product appears to be of high quality. As another reviewer mentioned, the key ingredient is curcuminoid -- and Bulk Supplements' product has 95% curcuminoid concentrate (as opposed to other product that is made of tumeric root, that has a much lower curcuminoid content). I suggest opening the package and removing the powder over the sink, as the powder will stain (as expected).

- I ordered this as I had never before seen a Tumeric product sporting a purity level as high as this. As other reviewers have mentioned this is a very high quality product. I use it to rid myself of various aches and pains and it does do the job. I feel completely comfortable recommending this product.

Lets start with taste. An important point when dealing with bulk powders. In my opinion the aftertaste is minimal. I put this into water sometimes and chug it with no problem (to be fair I've chugged some nasty crap over the years and I may have built a tolerance as a result). There is one catch to this stuff though. A big catch. It stains! I wish bulk would ship this in some sort of plastic container instead of the bag but its not that big of a deal. It's like Cheeto stains that wont go away!
First off, Curcumin (or curcuminoids) is one of the top 5 supplements everyone can benefit from. It's anti-inflammatory properties are well known but this supplement has a myriad of uses (digestive aide being another big one). I've been taking this product for years and years but this is the first time I've bought the powder. Curcumin is essential to your overall well being. Now to the product itself.

- I have been using turmeric with sea salt and a bit of cayenne to make a seasoning mix for flavorful and healthy cooking and my family has started to copy this. I mixed your curcumin in this last batch and am VERY impressed with the quality. I could probably have used less because of it's purity but if you can use a scant 1/2 t daily it won't be too much. So for seasoning, I get flavor, possible tumor protection and other health benefits, minerals from the salt, metabolism help from cayenne and beautiful color in my food. I will be getting more of this. (Be careful of the staining when handling, though)

- I was taking regular turmeric. I wasn't seeing results even when taking with pepper to help with absorption. So I thought I'd try the 95% Curcumin powder. The color is bright orange just like it should be. The turmeric doesn't even compare. I've only been taking it for a few days so I can't comment on effectiveness, but I hoping to see better results. I'll review again after a few weeks.

I had a question on my order, I received a Certificate of Analysis, which was very helpful. After reviewing information, I think product is excellent.

This is effective but I must mix it in blender to drink it, it is a spice.
I take curcumin for raynaud's syndrome. It seems to help my joints.

- I am very pleased with their product. Its cheaper and purer than others I have tried. I recommend this company. Fast shippers too. I will order again thru this site.

- I have purchased and tested BulkSupplements.com's Curcumin 95% and found it to be of the highest quality. I am planning to use it on one of our anti-inflammatory products soon, and I can attest to the efficacy and purity of this product. I highly recommend it.

MANY other companies have the Curcumin 95% prominently on their product however, when you read the ingredients you find that the product is mostly the cheaper tumeric root powder.
Tumeric root only has about 3-6% curcuminoids whereas Bulk Supplements is a 95% curcumimoid concentrate.
Most everyone should take Curcumin 95% even if perfectly healthy. Do the research!
My second order form BulkSupplements.com is perfect,as was the first order and I plan to be along time customer.
I just wanted to say BulkSupplements.com as the Best price and Best Curcumin 95% I've found.
