In this New Chapter Turmeric Force review, we’ll explore the supplement in its entirety.
To make that happen, we will first look at all of the claims, then we’ll take a nose dive into all of its ingredients, including the ones by far most reviews out there are completely negligent about. And in the mix of things, we’ll also provide some key insights what regards the benefits, as well as the success rate.
All to make as accurate of an assessment about the New Chapter Turmeric Force as possible.
The goal here is to create a review so thorough that there would not be a need for you to ever look at another supplement review for this specific supplement. Therefore, if there is a section or aspect I haven’t covered but you’re interested in, let me know. And I’ll add that to the review.
New Chapter Turmeric Force Review – Overview
According to the manufacturer, New Chapter Turmeric Force is their top-selling herbal supplement that’s an exemplar of a whole-food Turmeric that’s sourced from its natural habitat in India and other places around the world [R].
Overall, the description page for this supplement is a pretty straight forward one. There’s not too much information, it takes about 2 minutes to go through all of it, which includes a video that’s 50 seconds long.
Speaking of the video, it suggests that New Chapter produces Turmeric supplements in a way more beneficial way than it’s done generally. Thus, they propose that no Black Peper or Piperine is necessary to improve absorption.
Here’s exactly how they put it:
“New Chapter goes further to deliver Nature’s true proportions using the whole Turmeric Root. (..) Turmeric Force Captures hundreds of remarkable compounds, complete with Curcumin, as well as Turmerones like Nature intended for optimal absorption, so no Black Pepper additives needed.”
In that regard, we will examine whether or not it’s true, is it really the better option?
Other than that, the description page provides a few insights on the potential benefits. As the core benefits, they list a healthy inflammation response and supports heart and brain health. However, we’ll see that Turmeric in its benefits reaches far beyond that.
Then there are the supplement facts (which we’ll get into in the next section), info on the suggested use, some additional info such as the capsule being 100% vegetarian.
Then there are also some pledges as to the high-quality ingredients that they use. And additionally, they also have a section for reviews, which at this time has only two, both are 5-star ratings (one posted 3 years ago and the other 2 years ago).
All in all, this for sure sounds pretty solid. But do the ingredients actually live up to it?
Hard To Tell The Exact Curcuminoid Amounts
New Chapter Turmeric Force offers 320 mg of Turmeric (Rhizome) Aqueous extract and 80 mg of Organic Turmeric (Rhizome) Supercritical extract per every capsule of the supplement.
If you’ve happened to have done any Turmeric supplement research at all in the past, you’ll be very familiar with the fact that these are not your typical Turmeric supplement ingredients. They usually have something like the 95% standardized Turmeric extract or just straight up Turmeric herb extract.
To not make it too confusing, Aqueous (extract) and Supercritical (extract) both refer to the ways how the beneficial stuff of the Turmeric are being extracted (For both of the extracts, we see the name of ‘Rhizome’ in the brackets. Rhizome refers to the type of a continuously growing horizontal underground stem which puts out lateral shoots and adventitious roots at intervals. It essentially refers to the way the plant is growing) [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Overall, while they do seem to be somewhat advantages (definitely the more sophisticated ways) when compared with a standalone 95% standardized Turmeric, I’m not convinced that it can stand it’s own when that Turmeric is coupled with Piperine.
I feel that at the end of the day it’s essentially a tradeoff of good amounts of Curcuminoids (the active ingredient in Turmeric that’s most beneficial) for some amounts of Turmerones (which do improve the natural Curcuminoid absorption).
Probably the only question now persisting is whether or not such a tradeoff is actually worth picking?
Curcuminoids Are The Focus Of All Benefits
When going with huge numbers of Curcuminoids, like a 95% standardized 1000 mg of Turmeric Extract plus some Black Pepper (Piperine) to 20 times improve absorption, you can be pretty sure that the benefits will be there [R, R, R, R].
This is what most studies use (95% standardized extracts) and that is exactly what has been proven to be the cause of such benefits as the improved ability of detoxification and brain function, lowered risk of heart disease and lowered cholesterol levels, protection against metal toxicity, slowed down aging, healing of pain and Arthritis among other benefits [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Moreover, this particular stuff has been proven to be beneficial even if you are otherwise remarkably healthy (proper food and supplements, good night sleep, the practice of mindfulness, exercising daily) [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Whereas when it comes to Aqueous (extract) and Supercritical (extract) these are not as extensively studied. Plus, as far as I can tell, some suggest that there might be a slightly different profile of benefits altogether [R, R, R].
Sure, the added potential benefits of Turmerones, like improved Curcuminoid absorption, fighting off various cancers, prevention of Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease as well as other diseases among other benefits, sure are nice [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
However, as far as I can tell, you might be missing out on some of the typical benefits of Curcuminoids.
Which overall I strongly believe is not worth it.
But I reckon you will be missing out if you’ll insist on the New Chapter Turmeric Force as a standalone supplement.
To truly assess whether or not this one is worth going for, we will look at the success rate in one of the later sections. But right now let’s jump into a section that by far most other reviews are completely negligent about.
