A good few years back, I wanted to lose weight. I read up on supplements and learned of a whole different bunch of supplements that could help me lose weight. I started taking 4 to 5 different supplements, maybe 6. I forget what they were, but I’m sure a garlic supplement, green tea extract, and a multivitamin were in the mix.
After a few days of taking these supplements, I started to get these mild stomach pains. A few weeks in, and the stomach pains were getting more intense. I also noticed I wasn’t losing any weight, and despite taking these “healthy” supplements, my body wasn’t showing any signs of being more healthy. Instead, my body was showing signs of malnutrition—dry brittle hair, ridged nails, lack of energy, and dry skin.
I remember picking up one of my supplement bottles and reading the long list of ingredients besides the main supplement. There was magnesium stearate, which forms a biofilm in your gut and prevents the absorption of nutrients from your food (could this be why I had signs of malnutrition?). There was titanium dioxide, which has been shown to cause kidney damage in mice and small intestinal inflammation (possibly one cause of my stomach pains?). There was partially hydrogenated soybean oil, which encourages heart problems, strokes, nervous system problems, blocks the absorption of essential fatty acids, and upsets blood sugar regulation.
When I learned of these toxic fillers and additives in my supplements, I immediately threw them all in the bin. My stomach pain disappeared in a single day, and my signs of malnutrition were gone within a week.
This experience taught me three important lessons:
1. Avoid supplements that contain toxic fillers, binders, and other artificial additives.
2. Avoid taking too many different isolated supplements, each with a single or few targeted health benefit(s). Isolated supplements are more likely to have side-effects and be dangerous in high doses. Multiple isolated supplements may also have dangerous unknown interactions. Instead, stick to one or very few whole-food supplements, each with a wide range of health benefits.
3. Avoid artificially formulated supplements like multivitamins, stick to natural whole-food supplements only.
Later in life, I learned that turmeric was one of those few supplements that imparts a wide range of different health benefits. Since turmeric was put together by mother nature, you don’t have to worry about the way the 300+ known components of turmeric interact with one another.
But then, when I went on the search for a good turmeric supplement, I found that most turmeric supplements on the market contain toxic additives like magnesium stearate and microcrystalline cellulose. It was also difficult to find a turmeric supplement that had a good bioavailability enhancer like bioperine, and had a good mix of whole turmeric and curcumin.
That’s when I decided to approach a manufacturer and create my own turmeric supplement. This turmeric supplement would have all of the following properties, that would make it the best turmeric supplement on the market:
- Is 100% natural and contains ZERO artificial ingredients.
- Contains a good dose of bioperine to improve the bioavailability of curcumin by 2,000%
- Has a good ratio of whole turmeric powder vs. isolated curcumin.
Our turmeric supplement contains what we consider to be just the right mix of the above components–1200mg of turmeric root extract, 100mg of turmeric standardized to 95% curcuminoids, and a generous 5mg of Bioperine.
Additional ingredients used in the manufacturing process of our turmeric supplement include trace amounts of rice flour and silicon dioxide. Both are 100% natural and not known to cause any harmful effects.
As an advocate of grain-free dieting, you’d think I would take issue with the rice flour, but the trace amounts used here are so small, they are negligible. Also, silicon dioxide may sound like something dangerous, but it’s a perfectly natural substance that’s found naturally in water, plants, animals, and within the Earth. It’s even found naturally in the tissues of your body. Leafy green vegetables, beets, bell peppers, brown rice and oats, and alfalfa, all contain silicon dioxide, so if you’re eating healthy, silicon dioxide is already a part of your everyday diet.
As well as having a good mix of the right ingredients, our turmeric supplement is also very affordable, is gluten free, and safe for vegetarians and vegans, making it accessible to everyone.
So, if you’ve tried other brands of turmeric before and not had any tangible results, or if you’ve never tried turmeric before and would like to see how this wonder supplement can make a difference in your life, whether you’re suffering from arthritis, back pain, skin problems, or you just want to optimize your health, then click the link below and pick up a bottle of our unique turmeric supplement today:
