According to the Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Curcumin reviews posted by customers, this brand means less inflammation and pain.
I mean, many people praise the supplements for being better than painkillers. The products have helped people overcome serious injuries and their created consequences. People have found this to be amazing for all kinds of pain, including shoulder, back, and hip pain. And some even went as far as to say that this is God’s medicine.
So, in this Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Curcumin review, we will dive into all five Turmeric supplements of the brand.
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 | The Supplements Seemingly Don’t Do Persuading People At All
According to the manufacturer, the Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Curcumin is a supplement of “arguably one of the most powerful herbs on the planet.” And the spice comes with all kinds of variations since there are five different Turmeric-related supplements. Each slightly unique in how its formulated [R].
The product pages are very simple and they don’t involve any marketing tactics whatsoever (except for the supposedly discounted price).
I mean, we don’t get a money-back guarantee like with the PureNature Turmeric Curcumin (review). We also don’t get discounts in bulk like with the Qunol Liquid Turmeric (review). And there even isn’t a section for Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Curcumin reviews by customers.
As for benefits, they mostly go rather vague at it. I mean, they simply note that Turmeric is one of the most advantageous herbs in nature. And then, they also imply gains to joint health.
As for free-of claims, it’s said to be Vegan-Friendly, made with natural ingredients, Non-GMO, Soy-Free, Gluten-Free, Sweeteners-Free, Peanuts-Free, Wheat-Free, Milk-Free, Lactose-Free, Sugar-Free, Shellfish-Free, and Egg-Free.
Overall, I think they look decent. But are they actually worth the investment?
Ingredients & Side Effects | Reviewing Brand’s Products Separately
As mentioned (a couple of times already), when it comes to Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric brand, there are five different supplements that we need to discuss.
To make matters a bit confusing, they all have very similar names. Still, I think upon careful examination it is possible to tell them apart.
And so, on that note, to make this review as least complicated as possible, we’ll discuss the ingredients and side effects (the product of additives) of each of them separately.
Hence, you can either jump to a section you’re most interested in or just have a read at them all.
One thing to note about every single one of them is that they are third-party tested for purity and potency. And that would be great because that’s the best way to attest quality.
Sadly, that’s not real, as far as I can tell. More on that later. For now, let’s dive into the ingredients and side effects.
Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Curcumin With BioPerine (1950 Mg) – Going It Raw Way Too Much
Per serving (three capsules), the Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Curcumin With BioPerine (1950 Mg) offers 1800 milligrams of Organic Turmeric, 150 milligrams of Standardized 95% Curcuminoids, and 15 milligrams of BioPerine.
Well, 1800 milligrams of Organic Turmeric may seem awesome. But it actually isn’t that great. Because what we really need are Curcuminoids whereas raw Turmeric (which this is) offers only about 3% of that [R, R, R, R, R]
Meaning, we’re getting about 54 milligrams of Curcuminoids from the Organic raw Turmeric and there are those 95% Curcuminoids in those other 150 milligrams (142.5 milligrams of Curcuminoids). Namely, we’re only really getting about 200 milligrams of Curcuminoids total [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
And that’s a really low amount. I mean, even with the 20-fold increase in terms of absorption that Black Pepper (BioPerine) brings, that’s very scarce (it isn’t a 2,000-fold increase as Nature’s Nutrition claims in their promotional materials) [R, R].
My point being, for a proper chance at the full range of benefits, we should be having at least 1000 milligrams of 95% Curcuminoids plus Black Pepper. Thus, what I’m trying to say is that while the Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Curcumin With BioPerine (1950 Mg) may deliver some benefits, it looks pretty low [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
And with that, it’s likely not going to be anywhere as beneficial as something like the GNC Turmeric Curcumin Extra Strength (review).
As for the additives, I like how the particular Curcumin is doing it. It uses Cellulose and Magnesium Stearate.
The former is a polysaccharide extremely common in nature, and we consume tons of it with fruits and vegetables. The latter is a highly misunderstood but actually harmless substance which is something that also the minority of high-profile health experts and doctors agree with [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Curcumin With BioPerine (2,600 Mg) – This Doesn’t Make Sense
Per serving (four capsules), the Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Curcumin With BioPerine (2,600 Mg) offers 2,400 milligrams of Organic Turmeric, 200 milligrams of Turmeric 95% Curcuminoids, and 20 milligrams BioPerine (Black Pepper).
I mean, it’s the exact same supplement that the Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Curcumin With BioPerine (1950 Mg) is. It’s just one more capsule per serving, hence the changes in supplement facts.
I mean, we could literally just take one extra capsule of the 1950 milligram version and have this supplement.
It really makes no sense just to have another one. I mean, it would be an entirely different thing if this offered only 95% Curcuminoids and wouldn’t bother with the raw Turmeric. But it doesn’t.
And the additives are also the same here which are Vegetable Cellulose and Magnesium Stearate. Thus, it shouldn’t have any side effects either.
Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric & Ginger – Some Turmeric Exchanged For Organic Ginger
Per serving (three capsules), the Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric & Ginger offers 1500 milligrams of Organic Turmeric, 300 milligrams of Organic Ginger extract, 150 milligrams of 95% Curcuminoids, and 15 milligrams of BioPerine.
Ginger is widely recognized for its positive effects on digestion. On top of that, just like Turmeric Curcumin, it can help battle anti-inflammation and inhibit cancer growth. And it can also relieve muscle and joint pain similarly to Turmeric but not as potently [R, R, R, R, R, R].
Then, it also has the benefit of warding off nausea, menstrual pains, stomach ulcers, improving brain function, as well as even slightly improving Curcumin absorption among many other things [R, R, R, R, R, R].
So, generally speaking, I think this is a very fine addition. Still, my opinion on the scarcity of Turmeric Curcumin contents hasn’t changed. The benefits are very likely to be limited from that herb.
As for side effects and additives, we yet again see those two same substances. Which are Vegetable Cellulose and Magnesium Stearate. Hence, as discussed earlier, the supplement should cause any trouble in terms of negatively affecting our health.
Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Glucosamine – It’s A Mix Of Things Focusing On Joint Health
Per serving (three capsules), the Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Glucosamine provides 1200 milligrams of Organic Turmeric, 300 milligrams of Glucosamine Sulfate, 150 milligrams of each 95% Curcuminoids and Ginger, 75 milligrams of Chondroitin Sulfate, 60 milligrams of Boswellia, 15 milligrams of each MSM and BioPerine, and 12 milligrams of each Quercetin, Methionine, and Bromelain.
I mean, this supplement offers a variety of highly beneficial ingredients to heart and brain health with most emphasis on joint health. Still, I’m not really sure how much of that will go through and in reality provide any gains [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
What I basically mean is that there seems to be just too little of everything.
To illustrate, Nature Made TripleFlex Triple Strength (review), a supplement that is known to be highly beneficial to joint health, offers way more in terms of amounts when it comes to those key ingredients.
Lastly, there’s also the Chondroitin Sulfate. Of this ingredient, we’re looking at amounts of 75 mg and 800 mg for Turmeric Glucosamine and TripleFlex Triple Strength, respectively. That’s an above 10 times increase in favor of the latter [R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Hence, given the massive differences between dosages (effective ones) and those that are found in the supplement of this section, I doubt it will be of any significance to anyone. It looks cool. But that’s about it, the way I see it (minor benefits can come through though).
As for the side effects, this supplement uses slightly different additives than its Nature’s Nutrition brothers. This one has Vegetable Cellulose and Rice Flour. The former we discussed already. Whereas the latter is more than anything a beneficial additive. So, no worries with this one either [R, R, R, R, R].
Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Gummies – Trying To Make It Tasty But No Longer Healthy
Per serving (two gummies), the Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Gummies offers 30 milligrams of Turmeric extract, 2000 micrograms or 2 milligrams of Black Pepper extract, and 100 milligrams of Turmeric Powder.
I mean, gummies are pretty famous for being short on nutrients. And this Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Gummies definitely doesn’t feel any different. I mean, it’s just terribly scarce.
We’ve got some 100 milligrams of raw Turmeric. But where are the Curcuminoid extract? is that supposed to be those 30 milligrams or what?
Even with that, we’re looking at like 33 milligrams of Curcuminoids with some Black Pepper. And that’s worse than miserable. I don’t see how anyone is getting a good benefit out of this. It just feels like a product for the show (just to sell) and not to actually help anyone.
And then, we have to consider the additives. Because this one has it significantly worse than what has been the case so far with Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Curcumin supplements.
It uses Glucose Syrup, Sugar, Glucose, Pectin, Citric Acid, Vegetable Oil (which contains Carnauba Wax), and Ginger Flavor.
So, what does that mean?
Well, for starters, three of its most predominant additives by weight are various forms of sugar (very common with sweets). I mean, we’ve got both the regular sugar and two other forms of it that might as well just be High-Fructose Corn Syrup hiding under different names [R, R, R, R, R, R].
Either of these substances (the latter two more so than the former) can cause heart disease, diabetes, liver disease, depression, stupidity, obesity, weight gain, leaky gut, and cancer among many other problems [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Another problematic additive is definitely the unknown Vegetable Oil. These as a species are more harmful than many people realize. They are highly processed and bring tons of Omega-6 Fatty Acid contents which a typical diet is already having too much of. Furthermore, it can work as a toxin for the brain and promote inflammation just in general [R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Thus, consequently, I’m hardly a fan of the Turmeric Gummies of Nature’s Nutrition.
Reviews | While Customer Feedback Is Great, It Hints At Huge Problems
As we already did touch upon earlier, the supplements of this review don’t really have customer feedback on their respective product pages. Still, there is much to learn from as far as that goes.
Meaning, I did some research by all third-party sites I could find (which were mostly Amazon). And it turns out that this brand does exceed supplements like the Standard Process Turmeric Forte (review) and the Solgar Full Spectrum Curcumin (review) as far as the total count of ratings with comments go.
So, in total, I found 10,686 Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Curcumin (1,950 mg and 2,600 mg) reviews. Of these, 10,094 were positive (three-star and up) and 592 were negative (two-star and less). Meaning, that’s a global success rate of 94.5%.
For the Turmeric & Ginger option, I found a total of 5,175 pieces of feedback. Here, 4,878 were positive and 297 were negative. Namely, a success rate of 94.3%.
Then, when it came to Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Glucosamine reviews, I found just 365. Of these, 344 were positive and 21 were negative. In other words, that’s a success rate of 94.3%.
Whereas with the Turmeric Gummies version, it was extremely uncharacteristic. I mean, gummy supplement typically get extremely positive feedback. But here ouf the total of 162 ratings with comments so far, just 140 were positive. Meaning, a success rate of 86.4%.
Now, to put all of that together, we’ve got 16,388 Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric brand reviews where 15,456 are positive. Which means that the global success rate is 94.3%.
So, all in all, the supplements have a definitely decent success rate, with the exception of those Gummies. I mean, based on the feedback and even its contents to the larger extent, it feels to me like an absolutely supplement.
Anyway, as I did highlight the positive feedback at the very beginning of this article, I don’t feel that it’s necessary to add any more insight to that. The conclusion is still the same. The Turmeric Curcumin products have been very helpful to very many people.
But what about those that weren’t happy with it?
For many people, as anticipated, it just didn’t work. For others, they weren’t happy with how Amazon is delivering them. Others experienced side effects like stomach distress, nausea, and vomiting. Whereas others more were really unsatisfied that this did not contain 1,950 or 2,600 mg of Curcuminoids but just a fraction of that.
But what is really concerning is that it seems that third-party testing isn’t actually a real thing with the Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric supplements.
First, there is a huge discoloration between capsules with various lots. And the ones that smell, make people gag, and don’t look like Turmeric, don’t help people with their pain at all. Furthermore, some people tested it, and the product has Lead Chromate in it. That’s a substance used to improve yellow coloring of Turmeric but can be very, very detrimental to health [R, R, R, R, R, R].
And to add to all that, there was an all (!!) lot recall from January 2013 to November 2019. This was because of significant violations of Good Manufacturing Practices which resulted in decreased identity, purity, strength, and composition [R].
Meaning, it likely hasn’t been what they’ve been claiming on the label. It likely has been contaminated with lead. I mean, maybe there even was no Turmeric there like with Kirkland Turmeric (review). Plus, the recall of all products that they have made over a period of six years. Wow.
All of that, the way I see it, just indicates that the quality of Nature’s Nutrition Curcumin has very likely never been a good one.
Pricing | It’s Absolutely Ridiculous When It Comes To The Cost Of Them
I didn’t actually find anyone loathing the pricing on the supplements of Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric. But that might be just the notion of there being other more significant problems. Still, I think it bears the math to objectively assess this aspect.
Per container (120 capsules), the flagship Turmeric Curcumin (1950 mg) typically costs $20.42. That’s about $0.51 for a serving. But that’s $3.40 for every 1000 milligrams of 95% Curcuminoids.
And let me just throw it out there that it’s an insanely high price. Here are a few examples to illustrate.
Me First Living Turmeric Curcumin (review) typically costs $26.95 for a container of 30 servings. Meaning, that’s, essentially, $0.90 per serving or 90.0 cents for every 1000 milligrams of 95% Curcuminoids. So, it’s four times smaller price.
But it’s a proper formulation with Black Pepper and great additives while also being actually third-party tested. None of which feels like the truth for the supplements of this review.
Another example would definitely be the NutriGold Turmeric Curcumin Gold (review).
This one costs typically 57.5 cents for every 1000 milligrams of 95% Curcuminoids. Meaning, it’s basically one-sixth of what Nature’s Nutrition costs. Yet not only is NutriGold fully transparent about its third-party testing, but also it has quite a few third-party certifications to only further attest to its quality.
Overall, it genuinely feels like people are getting screwed over when it comes to the price. I mean, they’re overpaying for nothing. It’s a supplement that costs 4-6 times more than what some of the highest quality and best supplements of the category price for.
And that’s just beyond rubbish.
Ranking | Where Does This Turmeric Curcumin Rank (In 2022)?
Overall | Many Great Options Out There & Nature’s Nutrition Is Non-Sense
Initially, I had some decent belief in the Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Curcumin brand. But all of that got murdered by, essentially, how they do their manufacturing. And that they don’t actually do third-party testing as far as I can tell. And that’s just terrible.
The way I see it, it just absolutely destroys any credibility both for the brand and its owner SilverOnyx. It’s really, really puzzling that there are manufacturers which do it like this.
And even if we don’t account for the red flags with manufacturing, product identity, and third-party testing, they are very low in Curcuminoids.
They kind of build up the hype for customers by cleverly labeling it. Labeling it in a way so that they would appear to offer more Curcuminoids than they actually do. But clearly, many average customers fall for that.
And what I feel they also fall for is this seemingly low price. Which, in reality, is anything but low. I mean, it prices kind of like a supplement that would only carry 95% Curcuminoids. But in real life, it’s mostly raw Turmeric with only 3% of that.
And so, taking all this into account, I don’t think that it matters enough that the Nature’s Nutrition products have decent additives and great success rates most of the time.
I mean, (out of avoid it, consider it, shortlist it, buy it) I believe this is easily a brand to avoid. The indications for genuinely poor quality and not really caring for its customers are just too strong. And why take the risk when we have products like the NutriGold Turmeric Curcumin Gold (full review) and NutriCology CurcuWIN (full review).
It doesn’t make sense, the way I see it.
Above all, I hope this Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Curcumin 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.
