Our 100% Organic Turmeric Capsules are Soil Association-certified organic – and, like turmeric itself, the capsule shell we use is safe for vegans and vegetarians.
Each capsule contains 500mg of micro-milled turmeric powder, making it easier to consume for those who don't regularly cook with the spice or have time to blend a smoothie.
Regularly consuming turmeric may help support normal inflammation in the body as well helping to maintain a normal immune system.
The main active ingredient of turmeric powder is Curcumin, a powerful antioxidant that supports healthy inflammation. Regularly consuming whole turmeric powder helps the body maintain its 'Antioxidant Capacity' – antioxidants help the body neutralise free-radicals.
Our philosophy is one of natural health and as such we adhere to those principles. Therefore, our organic turmeric powder capsules contain whole micro-milled turmeric root, and not just curcumin extract like many of the other supplements available on the market. Whilst curcumin has been identified as the main active ingredient in turmeric, whole turmeric powder contains many other nutrients and compounds.
Currently, the recommended daily intake of turmeric powder is 1-2gm per day - this is a similar amount that would be consumed if you were to eat meals cooked with turmeric.
We believe taking turmeric should be sustainable, just as if you lived in South Asia, so our whole turmeric capsules each deliver 500mg or 0.5g of certified organic turmeric; 2-4 capsules a day equals a similar daily intake as you would receive if you cooked a meal that had turmeric as an ingredient.
Turmeric extracts may contain higher levels of curcumin, but they lack the micronutrients whole turmeric powder offers, which include significant amounts of omega-3, omega-6, iron and manganese, as well as a range of trace vitamins and minerals.
Nature balances organic turmeric in its whole form, and, like everything good in its natural state, should regularly be consumed as part of a balanced, healthy lifestyle.
Good quality turmeric extracts tend to be expensive and used by those looking for a quick fix rather than sustainable change – and as we all know there are very few short cuts in life worth taking!
Does what it says on the label, it is fab if you don't cook with this product all the time and want to reap the health benefits on a daily basis!
