In this Finest Nutrition Turmeric review, we will piece together everything noteworthy there is to know about this supplement.
To effectively do that, we will start with the promotional materials and the claims they make. This we will then forward to the beneficial ingredients and everything associated with those. Then it will be the time for the contents that others so often overlook (additives). And finally, we’ll look into the customer reviews and global success rates.
Finest Nutrition Turmeric Review – Initial Thoughts & Overview
I did try to find the supplement’s original product page by exploring various versions of the brand’s name. But it turns out Finest Nutrition is a brand of Walgreens. And hence, it only makes sense that for this section we look at what they have on the product [R].
Overall, while the product page of the Finest Nutrition Turmeric may not look like the briefest, it doesn’t have much meaningful text either. It’s definitely no Smarter Curcumin or PureNature Turmeric Curcumin in terms of being overwhelming. But neither is it visually appealing and well structured like those we find for supplements like New Chapter Turmeric Force or CurcuminRich Theracurmin.
I mean, it’s not a great place to find oneself on at all. I mean, the way it’s structured (the lack of structure frankly) doesn’t particularly imbue with trust. It looks very bad, almost Vim & Vigor Collagenate-like.
There are three main benefits they promise with this one. According to them, it’s about improved cardiovascular health, better joint health, and providing natural antioxidant support. Additionally, there are also some references to improved joint mobility and comfort, as well as heart health.
The supplement is said to be free of artificial colors, artificial flavors, gluten, sugar, and lactose.
But for all the otherwise poor execution, they do, however, have some proper marketing tactics in place. But they’re not 100% what PuraThrive Curcumin Gold or Angry Supplements Ultra Pure Turmeric goes for. The supplement of this review straight out offers two for the price of one. And, of course, there is also a money-back guarantee and the quite positive customer reviews.
Is that enough to get people to buy? Likely. Should we though?
One Of The Worst, Worst Formulated Supplements I’ve Seen
Now, looking at the active ingredients of the Finest Nutrition Turmeric, it is no wonder to as of why they opt to sell two for the price of one. With a supplement like that, they need to. Plus, there’s more to discuss.
So, per serving (one capsule), the supplement of this review offers 450 milligrams of Turmeric and 50 milligrams of Turmeric extract standardized to contain 95% Curcuminoids. And that’s it. There’s nothing else.
Why is this bad then exactly?
Well, with a typical Turmeric Curcumin supplement, it’s all about the Curcuminoids. That’s the good stuff that’s responsible for all the cool anti-inflammation-related benefits. Only trouble here is that this Finest Nutrition Turmeric doesn’t offer many [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Raw Turmeric (450 milligrams here) typically holds only 2-5% (3% being the most common) Curcuminoids. Hence, about 13.5 milligrams of the good stuff. Whereas that standardized extract holds 47.5 milligrams (95% of 50 milligrams). A total of 61 milligrams combined [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Now, I know there are similar supplements out there like Spring Valley Turmeric Curcumin and Bio Schwartz Turmeric Curcumin that also hold rather minuscule amounts of Curcuminoids like that. However, if we really care for the benefits and we want a proper chance of a full range of them, we should never go for anything less than 950 milligrams of Curcuminoids a day [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
And that’s with Black Pepper or Piperine to improve Curcumin’s absorption by 2000%. That’s like the bare minimum. Alternatively, if you’re after the most capable supplements in this category, you’ll need to opt for the patented formulations but that’s a whole another story [R, R, R, R, R, R].
So, the Finest Nutrition Turmeric is a terribly weak and poorly formulated one. And frankly, I’d be surprised if anyone using it encounter or feel any benefits at all (try comparing that to something like Terry Naturally CuraMed or Nutrigold Turmeric). But, as I mentioned at the start of this section, there’s more to discuss.
In terms of quality, this brand seems like a beyond terrible option. A few years back authorities took six different supplements of the Finest Nutrition lineup (Gingko Biloba, St. John’s Wort, Ginseng, Garlic, Echinacea, and Saw Palmetto). And only within one of them did they find the actual herb the supplement claimed to be all about. Which at least to me, casts a terrible shadow on the whole thing [R, R].
Plus, the aspect that we won’t find a single reference or insight on the actual quality that the brand embraces and subscribes to.
I mean, the way I see it, this is enough to never buy Finest Nutrition supplements ever, let alone when their original formulation in terms of beneficial ingredients is as bad as what we have with this Turmeric Curcumin product.
Additives Are Actually Fine, But, Frankly, Does That Matter Too Much
With the beneficial formulation and the likely overall quality of the brand being so bad, I pretty much expected it to also be a complete bust in terms of the additives. Because they can be really bad at times [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
But to my surprise, not the case with this Turmeric of Finest Nutrition.
Granted, the last two of the four have been a globally controversial thing. However, truly immersing myself in all the available research on the matter as I have, paints a completely different picture. Ultimately, I have to agree with the minority of health professionals and doctors that persist on the notion of this being one of the most non-dangerous additives out there [R, R, R, R, R].
And to really drive this point home, babies consume a ton of Stearic Acid through mother’s milk. More than we ever could by consuming Stearic Acid on its own or through Magnesium Stearate with supplements [R].
What’s Up With The Customer Reviews, Are They Decent?
Okay, so ingredients and their supposedly theoretical aspects is one thing. But what about the actual beneficialness or lack of it when it comes to the real-life customers of this thing?
Well, the Finest Nutrition Turmeric reviews available on the product page look highly positive as always. While it does hold only 14 reviews currently, it’s overall really not much different from what we’ve seen with products like Vimerson Health Turmeric Curcumin or NatureWise Curcumin. All excruciatingly positive.
So, I took it to all other sellers and retailers I could find selling the product. And I found almost nothing. Four reviews total.
I guess, bears not saying that that’s too few to say anything about the success rates.
And so, we’re kind of in the blind with this one.
Would you bet your money on a supplement with extremely poor beneficial ingredients and almost zero customer reviews to its name?
Even The Superficially Awesome Price Doesn’t Make Up For Flaws
I know there are legit quality concerns that revolve around Finest Nutrition. However, it might not be all that grim for the future.
The brand is actually up in the line for embracing the USP certification which would approve the supplements potency, purity, and safety. Or in other words, that it contains what it claims to contain and that it has any heavy metals properly removed (at the time of writing this it’s status is set at “Coming soon!”) [R].
But such a verification doesn’t remove its inherent flaws as far as ingredients go. Namely, this does not in any way improve the overall Curcuminoid amounts. I mean, it still won’t have enough Curcuminoids to make a true difference. It still won’t mean it has the ingredients necessary to improve absorption which is so crucial to add (unless we’re speaking Curcumin patented formulations).
Yeah, the price is nice. Hence, the deal looks like an awesome one. Only the supplement itself is a pretty useless one. I guess, we get what we pay for, right?
That being said, great supplements to go instead for include Terry Naturally Extra Strength Curamin (full review) and Nutrigold Turmeric Curcumin Gold (full review). But if you’re after the very best, I’ve done the research. Here’s the full review on that as well.
Above all, I hope this Finest Nutrition Turmeric review helped you find the information you were looking for. If this was given to you for free, would you take it? What do you think of the brand overall? Let me know below.
