Miracle Turmeric / Curcumin w/ Bioperine 5 mg
Turmeric has been a staple of Indian health practices for centuries. The Curcumin in Turmeric is what gives it its antioxidant power, and when taken as a capsule, you can avoid the spicy taste.

Some Hail Turmeric as “The Spice of Life”
Thousands of years ago, people in India and China used turmeric in a variety of ways. Some stories suggest traditional use may date back more than 10,000 years ago in India. The ancient Polynesians carried turmeric with them on their incredible voyage across the Pacific Ocean to Hawaii. Today, Hawaiians still use this spice known to them as Olena. In addition to a number of health-promoting properties, many ancient cultures used turmeric as a dye and it was even worn as dried beads to ward off evil spirits.
“How Curcumin Benefits Your Health in a Variety of Ways”
The potential antioxidant benefits (described above) from curcumin are actually just the tip of the iceberg. Many studies have shown a variety of different ways that this spice can support your overall vitality.*
Turmeric/Curcumin, can assist gallbladder function, may help aid in minimizing oxidative stress, and supports postmenopausal health in women (along with exercise)…
Plus, with this spice is capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier, curcumin’s potential as a neuroprotective nutrient and supporter of overall brain health should not be overlooked.*
Another important selection criterion for a curcumin supplement is to minimize the use of excipients or fillers within the formula. An excipient is a substance added to a supplement as a processing or stability agent. As some of these agents may cause ill-health effects, I recommend avoiding them.
Here are a few examples of what to watch out for and if they are in your supplement it might be best to avoid…
- Magnesium stearate – Made from stearic acid, this “flow agent” can inhibit absorption of nutrients in your digestive tract.
- Polysorbate 80 – Also known as Tween 80™, this additive can trigger allergic reactions.
- Isopropyl myristate – This excipient could trigger side effects in people already facing certain health challenges.
- Dibasic calcium phosphate (DCP) – This common turmeric additive may inhibit absorption of essential minerals within your system.
There are other risky additives you may come across as well. The bottom line is this… you don’t need these ingredients in your turmeric supplement. We feel they simply are unnecessary.
This is a great example of how carefully reading the supplement label will pay off. Generally, manufacturers are required to declare any processing agents they add or use in making the formula. If you notice any of the agents identified above on a curcumin supplement label, we recommend dropping it like a hot potato.
You have many available options when searching for a turmeric/curcumin supplement. Don’t make the mistake many could be making by just selecting the cheapest formula without scrutinizing what’s in it (and what’s not).
