Nature Made Turmeric Curcumin Review – Worth The Money?

Overview  |  The Core & Benefits  |  Additives  |  Additional Considerations  |  Conclusions  |

In this Nature Made Turmeric Curcumin Review, we will examine all about the supplement that is worth examining.

Thus, we’ll first go over all the claims made for the supplement. We’ll continue on with looking at the core of the supplement and what it potentially provides in terms of benefits. Lastly, we’ll also explore the additives that the supplement employs, as well as go over a few additional considerations for Turmeric supplementation.

Nature Made Turmeric Curcumin Review – The Overview

Nature Made Turmeric Curcumin is a Turmeric (Curcuma Longa) Blend containing supplement that is all about antioxidant activity for your well-being.

Nature Made Turmeric Curcumin ReviewThe description page of this supplement is quite abundant with all kinds of information. There are the product details, information on dosage, interactions, quality, supplement facts, and even FAQs.

Despite this, there aren’t really that many claims made in regards to the supplement. It’s on the most part all educational stuff both on just about Turmeric generally and on how to, when to, and when not to take it.

For example, they inform you that Turmeric is an ancient Indian spice that possesses one of the highest antioxidant activities of all various common spices (this is not, however, completely accurate).

Or that you should avoid that stuff if you’re pregnant or nursing, or that it should be used with caution if you’re using blood-thinning medications.

Other than that, one definite claim presented is the one about the supplement being “guaranteed to meet our high-quality standards – it is made from carefully selected ingredients under strict manufacturing processes”.

Furthermore, it’s many times emphasized throughout the page that Nature Made is the #1 Pharmacist Recommended Herbal Supplement Brand.

It’s also claimed to have no added Colors, no Artificial Flavors, no Preservatives, no Yeast or Starch while also being Gluten-free.

I mean, all in all, it sounds nice.

But is the supplement really worth your while?

It’s All Turmeric – There’s Nothing Else

I mean, you can’t really give props to the Nature Made for the name they came up with for the supplement. Being Nature Made Turmeric Curcumin it is as obvious as possible that it is about Turmeric and its most beneficial substance Curcumin.

The supplement’s only ingredient is a 500-milligram Turmeric Blend. This blend consists of 450-milligram Turmeric root powder and 50-milligram standardized Turmeric root extract, of which 47.5 milligrams are Curcuminoids.

Turmeric Curcumin Is An Insanely Studied Herb

Standardized is just a fancy word to guarantee that at least 47.5 milligrams of the extract will be Curcuminoids. Whereas Curcuminoids are the compounds responsible for all the health benefits of which the most impactful one is Curcumin (thus, the supplement’s name!!!) [R, R, R, R, R, R].

Turmeric is becoming increasingly more popular because of the marvelous antioxidant properties it displays. In fact, with a complete number of more than 12,800 peer-reviewed articles out there, it’s a medical herb that is one of the most frequently mentioned in science [R, R, R, R, R].

It’s even recognized as a food of positive effect beyond basic nutrition making it truly exceptional for improving health for anyone [R, R, R].

Surely, as with anything you can overdo it. But if you don’t it will account for benefits such as improved brain function, reduced depression, lowered heart disease, improved detoxification, cancer prevention, pain relieving, aging delaying, obesity, diabetes, and Arthritis combating properties, as well as other magnificent health benefits [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].

In truth, there is absolutely no reason why not to consume this substance daily. It is absolutely insane how beneficial it is and how much it empowers our bodies and minds to be at their best.

Additive-Wise There Are No Problems

While there are herbal supplements that are possible without any additives, in the present case with Nature Made Turmeric Curcumin it is not.

Additives shouldn’t be necessarily looked at as something bad but rather as something to make supplements possible. As regards to this, some people look at them as if they are to always cause problems for your health. However, that is not the case at all.

There are also additives that are harmless, which in the case of Nature Made Turmeric Curcumin is also true.

This supplement has six different additives – Cellulose Gel, Gelatin, Water, Stearic Acid, Magnesium Stearate, and Silicon Dioxide. All of them are harmless and one could even be referred to as beneficial [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].

So, additive-wise there are no red flags for Nature Made Turmeric Curcumin. On that same note, however, there are some lackluster that can be put to the supplement’s name.

Additional Considerations For Turmeric Supplementation

When it comes to Turmeric supplementation there are a few more things that must be taken into consideration.

First, the time frame. It’s worth noting that Turmeric supplementation takes time to really kick in. To be more precise, it may take up to 8 weeks of daily consumption for the full benefits to take place [R].

So, one thing to definitely keep in mind is to be patient with it and not quit after a week or two.

Black Pepper Improve The Absorption Of Curcumin (Curcuminoids)But most importantly Turmeric in of itself is very hard to absorb of a substance. Meaning if we ingest it alone most of it goes wide and we actually don’t get any benefit [R, R, R, R].

Not that there is no benefit to gain, there is. However, being a substance that is hard to digest for our organisms, it should be taken together with Black Pepper or Piperine [R, R, R, R].

This is because these improve the absorption not just a little bit. But by up to 2000% [R, R, R, R].

I mean, you still will get some benefit out of a Turmeric-only supplement like the Nature Made Turmeric Curcumin is. But you’ll have to consume 20 times the amount to get the health benefits you’d otherwise acquire with a little bit of Black Pepper or Piperine were present.

On top of that, unlike Nature’s Bounty Turmeric Nature Made Turmeric Curcumin does not have an improved version of Turmeric supplementation.

Thus, if you do end up going with the supplement of this review you’ll leave yourself a little bit shorthanded, to say the least. About 20 times.

Not really a good bang for a buck, eh?

Final Thoughts On Nature Made Turmeric Curcumin

Being the #1 Pharmacist Recommended Herbal Supplement Brand or not, Nature Made hasn’t really done a good job with the Nature Made Turmeric Curcumin supplement.

I mean generally and superficially, it is absolutely fine – good amounts of Turmeric, harmless additives.

There’s only one crucial thing they forget to mention or fail to recognize in all the educational stuff that they provide on their description page.

Turmeric is not well absorbed if Black Pepper or Piperine is not present. Thus, making the supplement far more ineffective than it could be.

Well, talking about biased educational material.

Either way, if Turmeric supplement is what you are after check out the vegan-certified Nutrigold Turmeric Curcumin Gold. Not only it is way more abundant in the amounts of Turmeric it provides but it also has that key added Black Pepper to the blend.

Other great options include Gaia Turmeric Supreme, as well as there are a couple of others. For the best one though, I’ve done the research on that as well. Here’s my full review.

Above all, I hope this Nature Made Turmeric Curcumin review helped you find the information you were looking for.

    • Hey, Joe!

      I’m happy to hear you enjoyed the information shared!

      Carpe minutam,

  1. This Nature Made Turmeric curcumin review is what I have been looking. It’s quite interesting to know that there is a better one from the same brand. If we are being short-changed by taking this one, up to 20 times, which is very high by the way. Then what exactly are we paying for when we buy it. This is the reason why one has to scour the internet for reviews before deciding on purchasing any product. Thanks for bringing your findings to our notice. 

    • Hey, Vapz!

      The names are pretty similar, it’s actually a different brand – Nature’s Bounty.
      20 times is a lot, completely agree. Above all though, I’m happy you found the article to be really insightful.
      I’m absolutely thrilled to share. :)

      Cheers, and have a Great One!

  2. Turmeric, Hmm, I have come across it before. In fact, I have friends who used it to cure heart disease. It was one of the supplements prescribed for her. Unfortunately, the sickness was too deep for turmeric to cure. These roles are confirmed about turmeric – improved detoxification, help in pain relief. This article just created awareness for me about the fact that there are also additives to the blend. It is all well and good though. Thanks for this lecture.

    • Hey, NiceAngel!

      Happy to hear that you enjoyed the article.
      And thank you for sharing your experiences, I truly value that and appreciate it.

      Carpe minutam,

  3. Hi, this is Gökhan

    Are there any negative effects on this product? I have heard it many times and want to use it but mainly I want to be sure whether there’s any kind of negative effects included? On the other hand how often can it be used?

    By the way, please let me know the product which can use this product to get results for health. I am working under stressful circumstances and sometimes using chemical medicine. I just want to back natural life :) 

    Thank you in advance for your answer.


    • Hey, Gokham!

      I can’t really say that there will never be an adverse or negative reaction for someone to the supplement. However, it is incredibly unlikely. Both due to the Turmeric and the additive composition. I mean, if you get an adverse reaction you might as well buy a lottery ticket.
      Use it as directed on the label.
      Additionally, you can also check out Gaia Turmeric Supreme (review). It’s not absolutely ideal but it’s pretty awesome nonetheless. One of the solid options is Nutrigold Turmeric (review).

      Hope that helps.

      Carpe minutam,

  4. Hi Matiss, the Nature made Turmeric Curcumin from your well detailed article looks so promising and has abundant product information that can help the user know what dosage to take, the quality and the rest. It is interesting to know that Tumeric supplement takes upto 8 weeks of daily consumption for its benefits to start showing. Your review on Turmeric curcumin has been quite helpful, at least I have learnt that without the presence of Black pepper or Piperine, Turmeric will not be fully absorbed, thereby making the supplement less effective.

    • Hey, Gracen!

      Brings me loads of joy that you loved the article. Glad you found it educational.
      And yeah, that Black Pepper or Piperine thing is really important. :)

      Cheers, and have a Great One!

  5. I absolutely love this insightful article because it is full of great information. This is fascinating and intriguing to me. Tumeric is a natural supplement and this post gave more details about it. Black Pepper or Piperine must be present when absorbing the natural turmeric supplement, getting this Tumeric will be best for me. Thanks for all the turmeric information!

    • Hey, Adamu!

      I’m beyond thrilled to hear that. Totally made my day!
      And I appreciate the kind words. :)

      Cheers, and have a Great One!

  6. Thank, you article was a very useful one and I really enjoyed it. I equally learnt from it as well. I have come to understand the health benefits of turmeric and it’s antioxidants properties present. Not just that, I have just known that turmeric does not get absorbed in the body on its own without the presence of black pepper or pepperine. 

    • Hey, Kenechi!

      I’m really happy to hear, I sincerely appreciate kind words.
      It does get absorbed though, only in a much more ineffective way.

      Cheers, and have a Great One!

  7. This is another great review and its full of insightful pieces of information. I always enjoy reading all your reviews and this one is no exception because they are very helpful.
