According to the Advanced Bionutritionals Curcumitol-Q reviews posted by customers, this supplement has been very satisfying for many.
Many people have found it to help with their pain. And even when it hasn’t completely defeated it, it has still considerably reduced it. Other people report it helping it with arthritis, tremors, and flare-ups. Whereas others boast about this improving their energy levels.
So, in this product review, we will thoroughly explore the supplement. And, ultimately among other things, also answer the question of whether Curcumin III is really worth it.
Hence, the idea is to be no extension of the manufacturer’s marketing or other similar nonsense. This is all going to be about what I feel is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. And we’ll do that by assessing marketing, ingredients, side effects (additives), customer feedback, and pricing. We’ll do it the truth-seeking way.
Marketing | Curcumitol-Q Uses At Least 6 Different Persuasion Tactics
According to the manufacturer, the Advanced Bionutritionals Curcumitol-Q is a supplement all about battling stiff joints and fighting off this notion of limited movement. Per their words, it’s about getting back that ease and freedom that proper joint health offers.
While they do promote the Turmeric Curcumin supplement being a powerful anti-inflammatory product, it claims way more.
It says that this supplement will also protect our heart health, strengthen cartilage, support digestion, and even aid memory and thinking. To that end, it truly does sound like something that could appeal to many people.
As for the product page, it’s rather brief. However, it has plenty of marketing to persuade people into buying.
Much like the Himalaya Curcumin Complete (review), it offers a 100% money-back guarantee. It also comes with various discounts if we decide to buy in bulk which is very much like the Seven Nutrition Turmeric Curcumin (review). The bulk options also come with free shipping.
And then, they also have the notion of $20 off for anyone buying the supplement, and they even offer a savings code. All of that is topped off by a decently positive Advanced Bionutritionals Curcumitol-Q reviews section.
So, the manufacturer is trying to sell it really hard. Still, no free-of claims whatsoever. Which is rather odd. But it can definitely be a drawback. More on that later.
Ingredients | Personally, I Don’t Think That It’s Looking That Stellar
Turmeric Curcumin supplements come in all kinds of ways these days. There are the standard 95% Curcuminoids kind of stuff like the Youtheory Turmeric (review). And then, there’s everything fancy with patented formulations like the Now Foods CurcuBrain (review). And the Curcumitol-Q also has a patented one.
So, per serving (one capsule), the supplement of this review offers 377 milligrams of Curcumin BioBDMD 30 which consists of 52% Curcumin I (Diferuloylmethane), 12% Curcumin II (Demethoxycurcumin), and 30% Curcumin III (Bisdemethoxycurcumin). It also adds 50 milligrams of Quercetin.
First, it’s very weird that they don’t actually have a supplement facts picture or link on the page. I had to research other reviews to find the ingredient list. And that just isn’t how true quality brands typically operate.
(I later did find the picture on another sales page but I’ve no idea why they haven’t added it on the main product page.)
Second, what’s up with the percentages in the patented formulation? I mean, there’s 52% Curcumin I, 12% Curcumin II, and 30% Curcumin III which is a total of 94%. Meaning, what are the other 6%?
Are these ingredients that they need to make the formulation work and they felt uncomfortable listing them under additives? Or is it just this simple notion of 6% that is the raw Turmeric that isn’t standardized like the rest of it?
The latter seems more likely based on how supplement facts are worded. However, I wouldn’t rule out the former either since Turmeric typically comes in sets of standardized to 95% (namely, 1% fillers and whatnot).
Third, while I generally like the idea of having way more Curcumin III than what we get with formulations like the Curcumin C3 Complex in supplements like the NutriGold Turmeric Curcumin Gold (review), I’m not really sure about this.
I mean, in theory, it sounds nice, and it’s definitely unique. There is no reason why this would be bad, as far as I’m aware. Furthermore, Bisdemethoxycurcumin can offer insane anti-cancer and cognition-protecting benefits [R, R].
Fourth, generally speaking, Quercetin is a great addition. It has plenty of awesome gains to offer like a better immune system, pain reduction, and anti-diabetes, anti-allergy, anti-obesity, anti-aging, anti-cancer properties. But can it actually improve the absorption of Curcumin compounds? I mean, we don’t see it with other Curcumin supplements ever, right [R, R, R, R]?
But there’s actually science available that supports this notion. Still, there’s a reason why other products don’t use it very often. Because Piperine is just far, far better in that regard (at least 50% better, from what I can tell). And it’s probably cheaper as well. It doesn’t have the benefit profile quite as awesome but it’s very good nonetheless [R, R, R].
Fifth, the quality aspects are a bit interesting. I mean, from what I can tell, they are doing proper in-house testing for purity, potency, and safety. But third-party testing doesn’t seem to be their thing. But I guess the most interesting part is regarding Non-GMO. That will cover in the next section.
Side Effects | To Review Additives, Curcumitol-Q Likely Has GMOs In It
Side effects are the product of additives. And that’s even more true with supplement categories like Turmeric Curcumin. I mean, while it does happen (like with Solgar Full Spectrum Curcumin), it’s rather rare to see products of this category to have bad inactive ingredients.
So, what’s the story with the Advanced Bionutritionals Curcumitol-Q here?
As far as the listed ones on the label go, it is a decent bunch. We’ve got Silicon Dioxide, Rice Hull Powder, Hypromellose, and Purified Water.
Silicon Dioxide is basically sand. Meaning, it’s an organic element widely found in nature. Generally, very harmless to consume. Which is kind of exactly what can be said about the Purified Water as well.
As for Hypromellose, I’ve seen some people trying to villainize it. But there’s research that uplifts the idea that it is actually helpful.
Whereas as far as Rice Hull Powder goes, it’s one of the most decent choices when it comes to additives. That said, this one definitely can be made out of GMO materials. Which leads me to this weird notion I mentioned earlier in regards to the Curcumitol-Q of Advanced Bionutritionals having GMOs in its contents.
I mean, here’s the thing. On their quality page, they don’t say that they don’t use GMOs. They only claim that they don’t use them whenever that is available. Which, the way I see it, is a very corny way of putting it.
I mean, what do you mean with “whenever that is available”?
Because it most certainly should always be available. It might not be the cheapest or the easiest to arrange type of option but it is most definitely always available. Plus, they have other product pages where they clearly state that a particular product is Non-GMO [R].
Not the case for the Advanced Bionutritionals Curcumitol-Q though. In other words, I think it’s pretty safe to say that the supplement of this review does use GMO ingredients. Which are never a healthy thing to consume [R, R, R]
Reviews | There Is No True Third-Party Feedback With This Supplement
I did look at all the Advanced Bionutritionals Curcumitol-Q customer reviews that I could find. And while I did find some, none did I manage to find with third-party sellers.
In fact, just about the only place where we can buy this supplement is directly from the manufacturer. Which, at least to me, doesn’t make any sense if the product is truly as revolutionary as they are trying to paint it.
I mean, if that was the case, just about any supplement retailer or outlet would be eager to have it in their shop. But that is not the case.
To go even further on that I don’t think that there are any genuine reviews of the Curcumitol-Q on other websites either. I mean, as far as I can tell, they all are just trying to sell people the product. And they’re doing that by basically regurgitating the promotional materials.
As far as Curcumitol-Q reviews by customers go, the product page holds a total of 45 with an average rating of four stars. Of these, 6 pieces of feedback are negative (one-star, two-star). Which means that even the product page has a success rate of 86.7% (which is low for that).
But for third-party sellers and retailers, we have no reviews. And that just doesn’t really imbue trust in a product, the way I see it.
Pricing | While No Customers Report It Being Bad, It Isn’t A Bargain
While there were no negative Advanced Bionutritionals Curcumitol-Q reviews that loathed pricing, there are some shenanigans happening with that. Because the supplement basically claims to have a $20 discount on a bottle when, in reality, that just seems to be the regular price.
So, per bottle (60 capsules), the supplement of this review costs $49.95. Given that it holds, 60 servings, that’s $0.83 for every serving. Whereas in terms of Curcuminoid contents, the price is $2.21 for every 1000 milligrams of 94% Curcuminoids.
How does that compare?
Generally speaking, the price isn’t that great. Here are a few examples to illustrate.
Let’s take, for example, a supplement like the Me First Living Turmeric Curcumin (review). It costs $26.95 for a container. That’s 90.0 cents for every 1000 milligrams of 95% Curcuminoids. But there are profound differences between the supplements.
First, Me First Living is Organic and Non-GMO. Second, Me First Living also has third-party testing when Curcumitol-Q has none of that. Third, Me First Living uses Piperine which has way better absorption rates for Curcuminoids than Quercetin does.
So, given the more than 200% price difference as well as all the other characteristics, I don’t think that it makes sense to prefer Curcumitol-Q between the two supplements.
But since the supplement of this review is a patented one, let’s look at a patented version of things as well for comparison. Say, let’s take something like the BioTrust Ageless Turmeric (review) which is not a cheap supplement at all.
I mean, Ageless Turmeric costs 1.30 for a serving which is $2.60 for every 500 milligrams of CurcuWIN. Whereas CurcuWIN is a patented version of Curcumin known to be 136-fold more powerful than regular 95% Curcuminoids extract.
The math to compare the two becomes a bit difficult but the gist of it is this. For the same price, we are either getting 500 milligrams of CurcuWIN or 1000 milligrams of Curcumin BioBDMD. In other words, we’re getting about 5.2 times the value with the CurcuWIN option.

Ranking | Where Does This Turmeric Curcumin Rank (In 2022)?
Overall | It’s Unique, Alright, But I Wouldn’t Ever Buy It
I think that many people are being persuaded into buying the Advanced Bionutritionals Curcumitol-Q because of the ORAC scale that they offer where they say that Curcumin III has a value of 565,000. Which means that, per the words of Advanced Bionutritionals, it’s 59 times more potent than any Curcumin we’ve ever tried.
But that I believe is fundamentally wrong for at least two reasons.
First, the rate of 59 times comes from comparing the ORAC value of Curcumin III (565,000) and regular Curcumin (9,500). But it completely disregards that there are patented Curcumin formulations that offer a 100 or 136-fold increase in bioavailability. Meaning, the Curcumitol-Q is the inferior version.
Second, I’m not sure how accurate that scale that they show actually is. I mean, I found that Turmeric has an ORAC value of 127,068 (they claim 9,500), and Grapefruit has an ORAC value of 1,640 (they claim 22,600). Also, Peppermint is either 13,978 (fresh) or 160,820 (dried leaves) and not 37,300 (as they claim) [R].
So, yes, it is a unique supplement. But I wouldn’t buy into their claims that it’s actually better than anything else out there.
And then, yes, there are some positives to the supplement overall. But the fact that it likely has GMO ingredients, that it has no third-party testing in the era when that’s crucial for Curcumin products, and that there are better-priced options out there would all keep me at bay from buying this [R, R].
I mean, (out of avoid it, consider it, shortlist it, buy it) I reckon we could still consider it due to its uniqueness. But I wouldn’t recommend it ever. There are just too many better options to go for, the way I see it.
To that end, if you happen to be after something truly remarkable as far as Turmeric Curcumin supplements go, I would propose looking into the one that I am taking daily. You can find the full review of it here.
Above all, I hope this Advanced Bionutritionals Curcumitol-Q review helped you find the information you were looking for. If you have any thoughts or questions, I’m just a comment away. And do feel free to leave your own personal reviews on the product as well.
