Turmeric has been used for centuries for its natural beneficial actions.

Turmeric is a yellow-flowered perennial plant found in India and throughout Asia. The root of the plant is used both as a spice and as a nutritional supplement. The active ingredient is curcumin, which is obtained by scalding, drying and then grinding the root like stem of the plant to form a yellow powder.

Turmeric features prominently in ayurvedic medicine (Indian traditional medicine). In the early 1970's researchers uncovered the science behind its efficacy - notable compounds called curcuminoids.

I order my TUMERIC for more then a year now with Healthspan.It was first ordered for my partner, becouse he was seriously ill and only had one tablet and declined to take it becouse give him tummy discomfort and make him feel more ill,so he left it for me, if I need it.I just have been diagnosed with slightly fatty liver disease and start taking it as liver detoxifaer .I dont feel much different when I take Tumeric,but its give me more strenght and make me feel good.I dont have any medical condition at present just take it as a preventitive.Olso when I first start it,I have lost about a stone for 3-4 months, which was recomended for my liver.I only had one problem with Healthspan ,when I change my address ,I had to ring them, becouse not been able to update it online.I would recomend the product and the company to my friends.

Very effective at relieving the degree of pain in a member of my family's hip and back. Sometimes, he goes without it for a few days while we are waiting for delivery of a new packet and he complains of additional pain in his hip. Because he just takes the supplements we get out for him, he is not actually aware that he hasn't been taking the turmeric for a few days. In a way, this is good test of its effectiveness and proves that the perceived reduction in pain is not the placebo effect. It's no coincidence that he always has more pain when he's not taking it.

Excellent overall long term health benefits

good product

28 February 2015

I use this product for joint health and as an anti infllamatory for my IBS I feel that it does help

28 February 2015

I had hoped I'd be able to use this product, which had been recommended for IBS, but, as with previous Hewlthsoan products, I found it irritated my hiatus hernia and gave me heartburn, it must be something used in all their products as this has happened before so I won't be ordering other things.

Recommended by a herbalist years ago and used since then.

27 February 2015

Use with glucosamine and chondroitin improves pain relief.

26 February 2015

Turmeric has really calmed painful osteoarthritis. I just wish you would combine it with black pepper extract to avoid having to take it separately. (Proven to facilitate absorbtion.)

24 February 2015

Never sure if these things work so difficult to comment - hopefully they are helping with my medical problem.

22 February 2015

Has stopped my joint pain and so now do not need to take anti inflammatory pain killers anymore.
