If you've been following recent health trends, you're probably fully aware of how important antioxidants are for your health. The antioxidants in turmeric, such as vitamin C and others, actually come from active compounds within the spice called curcuminoids. What you may not be aware of is just how powerful the antioxidants delivered by these curcuminoids may be. Amazingly, curcumonoids may deliver antioxidants which are:
- 5 to 8 times stronger than vitamin E and vitamin C
- 3 times more powerful than grape seed or pine bark extract
It is important, though, to make sure you are getting the right (high quality) turmeric when it comes to your health. In fact, it is perhaps the most important part of the decision to purchase any herb or spice. I recommend you do not take the risk on low quality or synthetically processed forms of turmeric which are commonplace in the supplement market. Many turmeric raw materials we've tested are contaminated with lead and bacteria. In fact, lead and bacterial contamination are the two biggest challenges for sourcing clean turmeric.
Avoiding Fillers, Synthetic Ingredients, and even Genetically Modified Organisms in Many Turmeric Products
Don't simply purchase any turmeric supplement you can find in your local supermarket or health food store. It is very important to be selective when it comes to what you put into your body. When selecting Turmeric Gold out of a marketplace of thousands of other formulas, we went through a rigorous quality checklist that covered everything from how the organic turmeric was harvested to how it was ultimately extracted into liquid form. We also tested the turmeric for heavy metals and bacteria in our quality control laboratory, using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation and a full microbiology lab.
Here are some key points from the checklist that needed to be met in order for the finished product to meet my high standards of quality and potency:
- Contains certified organic turmeric -- there was no room for questionable sources of turmeric to be used.
- Free of fillers, additives, and artificial sweeteners -- the formula was not allowed to contain any of these items.
- Free from genetically modified ingredients -- no GMOs were allowed be in the formula.
- Vegan certified ingredients -- it was important that everyone could enjoy this product.
- Low in Heavy Metals -- lead levels needed to be near zero.
- Low in bacteria -- no high levels of bacteria allowed
Knowing where my natural health products come from -- and how they are created -- is extremely important to me, and I'm sure you'll agree none of us wish to put something into our bodies unless we're confident it is created without contaminants or fillers.
Serving size: 1/4 tsp.
Servings per container: 48
Each serving contains 1/4 tsp. turmeric extract.
Other ingredients: USDA organic palm-based vegetable glycerin, purified water (pH neutral).
What is the potency of Turmeric Gold?
One serving (1/4 tsp) contains 550 mg of turmeric extract, which is equivalent to 550 mg of raw turmeric powder.
How long will one bottle last?
Each bottle contains 48 servings. At one serving per day, a single bottle will last 48 days. If you take one serving each morning, and another serving each evening, the bottle will last 24 days.
What does the liquid extract taste like?
It tastes like a sweet curry.
Is the liquid extract standardized to a specific level of curcuminoids?
No. "Standardization" is not natural. It's a term borrowed from the pharmaceutical industry. In nature, every turmeric root is different just like every apple from an apple tree has slight variation in color, size and taste. Our turmeric root is truly natural and is absolutely not "standardized." There will be some small variation in taste, color and potency from batch to batch.
What is the country of origin of the turmeric root used to make the extract?
What is the shelf life of your liquid turmeric?
Two years from the manufacturing date, but this can be significantly extended through refrigeration.
Does the extraction process use alcohol, or water?
Purified water free of fluoride and other contaminants. Our liquid turmeric is 100% alcohol-free.
What is the best way to store liquid turmeric?
In a cool, dark, dry place. While you may store turmeric at room temperature, to extend product lifespan storing in a refrigerator is a good choice, and a root cellar is also ideal. This will help extend the lifespan of the turmeric, and can be especially useful for bulk preparedness storage.
Is Turmeric Gold organic?
Yes, it's USDA certified organic.
What is the absorbability of Turmeric Gold?
Our liquid turmeric has far higher absorbability than typical turmeric pills or powder. Our extract removes the cellulose and fiber, delivering only the high-potency phytonutrients (such as curcumin) as well as the plant's trace minerals.
How can I enhance the absorbability of turmeric even further?
Take it with black pepper. The phytonutrients in the pepper greatly enhance the absorbability of not just turmeric but virtually all plant-based supplements.
Do you sell your liquid turmeric extract in larger quantities for wholesale accounts?
Yes, we have liquid turmeric extract available in multiples of 48 or 96 for wholesale accounts. Contact us at [email protected] Low Heavy Metals Verified!
