Youtheory Turmeric Review – Is The Money We Pay Worth?

Marketing  |  Ingredients & Side Effects: Flagship, Extra Strength, Powder  |  Reviews  |  Pricing  |  Pros & Cons  |  Ranking  |  Overall  |

According to the Youtheory Turmeric reviews posted by customers, this has helped many people to make their physical pain almost non-existant.

The most fascinating thing is that for many the benefits have been almost immediately noticeable. Many say that it helps with their inflammation. Some praise it for helping them sleep better and improve memory. And others more simply note that this is a totally awesome product.

In this Youtheory Turmeric review, we will be looking thoroughly at all three, namely, the regular version of the supplement, the Extra Strength version of things, as well as the powder alternative.

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 Don’t Go Heavy On Promotion

So, with Youtheory, there are three Turmeric Curcumin supplements on the table. There’s the kind of a regular, baseline Youtheory Turmeric version. And then, there is the more powerful, improved alternative, namely, the Youtheory Turmeric Extra Strength. And the newest addition to this lineup is the Youtheory Turmeric Powder which is kind of a completely unique thing.

Youtheory Turmeric ReviewAs far as the product pages go, they all use, essentially, the same template. And, naturally, with that, they also share the same marketing tactics across all of the pages. Which is actually just one of those.

The tactic they employ is the same that we see with supplements like the Qunol Turmeric (review) and the Vimerson Health Turmeric Curcumin (review). It’s this idea that if we subscribe for monthly shipments, it will come with a 15% discount.

Other than that, there are no sections for Youtheory Turmeric customer reviews or a money-back guarantee.

As for the promised benefits, the primary one is the healthy inflammation response. Powerful antioxidant properties are also something that they claim. And then, there are all kinds of gains associated with better absorption, amplification, and whatnot.

As for the free-of claims, the supplements of this review don’t promise too many. The ones they do claim are Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, and Soy-Free. To that end, what raises some concerns, at least in my mind, is the fact that there’s no Non-GMO claim which typically just means that a supplement uses GMO ingredients.

But all in all, the products do sound fine. The real question, however, is whether or not they are actually worth the investment. So, are they?

Ingredients & Side Effects | To Make Things Least Confusing, One At A Time

Since there are three Youtheory Turmeric supplements that we need to discuss, I want to devote a separate section for each and every one of them. Because I think it makes matters less confusing.

Plus, then you can just jump in whichever version of the brand you’re most interested in. All that being said, in the subsections to follow, we will look at the core beneficial ingredients and additives.

Youtheory Turmeric (Review) – Establishing A Solid Baseline For The Brand

Flagship Youtheory Turmeric ReviewFirst up, we have a supplement that could be considered the flagship product of all Youtheory Turmerics. While that would typically imply that it’s the most simplistic version of them all, it does add its own twist to the things. 

So, per serving (three tablets), it contains 450 milligrams of Turmeric extract (95% Curcuminoids) Curcumin C3 Complex coupled with 300 milligrams of Olive (leaf) extract, and 15 milligrams of BioPerine (95% Piperine).

Generally speaking, all of this looks great. But I’m just not so sure about the Turmeric amounts.

The thing with standardized to 95% Curcuminoids is that I would prefer the amount to be at least 950 milligrams daily. With BioPerine, that’s a really good combination which has every reason to deliver on all of the benefits [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].

Yes, I’m absolutely certain that every bit of this spice will be helpful no matter how little we get. At the same time, would we not want it to be at least decently helpful if we’re picking a supplement up? I think so. Hence, I’d say that the amounts per serving are not ideal. Too scarce.

But to bring us up to that ideal minimum level, that would mean seven total tablets. And that’s just so inconvenient for a Turmeric Curcumin product.

Stepping back a bit, about that BioPerine, that’s an absolutely necessary addition to any Curcumin supplement that pursues 95% Curcuminoids. It’s important because Piperine is a substance that improves the absorption of Curcuminoids by 2000%. So, for efficiency purposes, we absolutely can’t do without it [R, R, R, R, R].

Lastly, that Olive leaf thing seems to be a little on the scarce side amount-wise. Still, in theory, it can help eliminate free radicals, reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure, promote immunity, improve heart health, boost heart health, brain health, and weight loss, and help with a fair share of other things [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].

Olive Leaf Extract Can Help Quite A BitFor the additives, well, sure, they’re not as bad as in supplements like the Qunol Liquid Turmeric (review) or the PuraThrive Curcumin (review). But they are likely not great either.

The Youtheory Turmeric uses Dicalcium Phosphate, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Stearic Acid, Croscarmellose Sodium, Magnesium Stearate, Modified Cellulose, and Silicon Dioxide.

A tricky aspect typically are Stearic Acid and Magnesium Stearate which are some of the most misunderstood additives there is.

Do not believe what most of the internet is preaching about them. They’re harmless and absolutely okay to use. Anyone who believes otherwise is just terribly superficial about reading the actual research [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].

Other than that, generally speaking, all of the additives can be fine if certain things are true. Like if this was a supplement that was claimed to not have any GMO ingredients. But since it isn’t, I believe Croscarmellose Sodium and Modified Cellulose can be a problem [R, R, R, R, R].

Youtheory Turmeric Extra Strength (Review) – Taking Things To The Next Level With C3

Youtheory Turmeric Extra Strength ReviewNow, the Youtheory Turmeric Extra Strength doesn’t build entirely, or rather fully, on the flagship Turmeric Curcumin supplement. Meaning, It doesn’t add any Olive leaf extract. But it does bring to the table great amounts of Turmeric.

So, per serving (two capsules), this Extra Strength brings 1000 milligrams of Turmeric extract (95% Curcuminoids) Curcumin C3 Complex. This is coupled with 10 milligrams of BioPerine (95% Piperine) for that 20 times improved absorption which we touched upon in the previous section [R, R, R, R, R].

Overall, a supplement like this reminds heavily of those like the Me First Living Turmeric Curcumin (review) or the Nature’s Nutrition Turmeric Curcumin (review). I mean, it’s just this core idea of a decent amount of 95% Curcuminoids augmented by some Piperine. Which, frankly, is never a bad combination.

But to make matters even better, the Youtheory Turmeric Extra Strength is also third-party tested for purity and potency. And that I believe is a very important thing in this day and age, especially considering that there are suppliers that add lead to their Turmeric to improve the harvest [R, R].

Third-Party Testing Is Very Important With Turmeric ProductsSo, all in all, the way I see it, this Extra Strength version of things has every reason to deliver on even beyond the gains Youtheory promises.

It can also improve brain function, detoxification, heart and liver health, slow down aging, ease depression, heal pain and Arthritis, protect against metal toxicity, combat obesity and diabetes, lower cholesterol levels, as well as help in other marvelous ways [R, R, R, R, R, R].

What’s more, it doesn’t use any of the potentially shady additives that we saw with the basic Youtheory Turmeric. Vegetable Cellulose, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Vegetable Magnesium Stearate, and Silicon Dioxide mean that all of the additives are basically as harmless as they come [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].

To paraphrase, I would certainly be far more inclined in choosing the Extra Strength over the flagship product.

Youtheory Turmeric Powder (Review) – Using A Patented Curcumin Approach

Youtheory Turmeric Powder ReviewThe Youtheory Turmeric Powder makes things a bit more interesting. It doesn’t do the kind of a standard 95% Curcuminoids plus Piperine approach. Instead, it opts for a rather completely unique one.

So, per serving (one rounded scoop), this thing offers 300 milligrams of Turmeric extract TurmiPure GOLD. In other words, it’s all about a patented Curcumin formulation without the addition of anything else. At least as far as the beneficial ingredients. So, what exactly is it?

TurmiPure GOLD is a fusion of Turmeric, Acacia Gum, Sunflower Oil, and Quillaia extract made from sustainable, certified organic ingredients. It’s a patented, instantly water-dispersible, drinkable Curcumin formulation that has been proven through studies to not only be completely safe, but also to be 24 times more effective than simple 95% Curcuminoids [R, R, R].

Now, before we get us too excited about that, just know there are many different patented Curcumin formulations out there. We’ve got stuff like Longvida and CurcuWIN which are 100 and 136 times more powerful than 95% Curcuminoids, respectively. Hence, the 24-fold improvement isn’t that big of a deal [R, R, R, R, R, R, R]

However, it certainly does outdo the classic 95% Curcuminoids plus Piperine approach. And, by all means, I think it’s a viable option if we’re after the full range of Turmeric benefits. What I’m not so sure about are the additives that they add [R, R, R, R, R, R].

With the Youtheory Turmeric Powder, we’ve got Organic Cane sugar, Xylitol, Natural Flavors, Monk Fruit powder, Citric Acid, Calcium Ascorbate, and Sea Salt.

Organic Sugar Is Not A Healthy SubstanceOf these, I like the Monk Fruit powder which is a great, actually healthy sweetener. I like Calcium Ascorbate and Sea Salt as these can only be helpful. I have recently grown to be okay with Xylitol since it also offers slight gains. And with Natural Flavors, I don’t think that when it comes to Youtheory, it should be a concern [R, R, R, R, R, R].

But I’m not fond of Organic Cane sugar and Citric Acid.

What many people fall into the trap of is thinking that just because sugar is of Organic sorts that automatically means that it’s healthy.

In truth, nothing could be further from it. Sure, it may involve fewer chemicals, fewer pesticides but it can still quite literally make us stupid and cause a plethora of health problems like heart disease and obesity [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].

Whereas Citric Acid seems to me to be another potential problem. I mean, the issue with it is that it’s often GMO. Now, did this Turmeric Powder of Youtheory claim to be Non-GMO? No, it didn’t. Hence, it’s likely that this is a GMO ingredient and thus, it can bring havoc and unnecessary side effects easily. Plus, there can be other potential concerns [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].

Reviews | In Terms Of Customer Feedback, They Have Been Well-Received

I think customer reviews are an absolute must to discuss. Which is especially important given how many people tend to base their purchasing decisions on them alone. The problem with this is that customer feedback is often written by innocently ignorant people. And then, there’s also the fact that is is rather easily manipulatable (like with the Sanar Collagen Wrinkle Formula).

Thus, this can be an important aspect to look at but it won’t ever be everything. So, what about the three Youtheory Turmeric supplements?

Youtheory Turmeric ReviewsWell, they are quite unlike supplements like the Seven Nutrition Turmeric Curcumin (review) or the BioTrust Ageless Turmeric (review).

This is for the pure fact that the supplements of this review don’t have testimonials or a section for the Youtheory Turmeric reviews by customers. All we have is what we can find from all other sellers and retailers.

And so, I did some research. I managed to come across a total of 1,265 pieces of feedback. With these, 644 were the basic Youtheory Turmeric reviews, 620 were the Youtheory Turmeric Extra Strength reviews, and I found only one Youtheory Turmeric Powder review.

Now, about the success percentages. They were genuinely great apart from, of course, the Powder option for which it’s just too early to tell with a single positive comment.

With the 644 Youtheory Turmeric ratings, there were 35 one-star, 18 two-star, 49 three-star, 82 four-star, and 460 five-star ones. In other words, 591 positives and 53 negatives which leave us at a success rate of about 91.8%.

Then, there are the 620 Youtheory Turmeric Extra Strength reviews which were divided like this – 22 one-star, 22 two-star, 59 three-star, 188 four-star, and 399 five-star. That’s a total of 576 positives and 44 negatives. Hence, we’re left with a success percentage of about 92.9%.

So, more than a full percent over the flagship option. Which, generally speaking, I believe was to be expected. Still, I did not expect the basic version to be as well-received.

Pricing | The Products Cost Way More Than They Should

So, I guess it’s fair to say that some of the supplements within the Youtheory Turmeric brand seem to be more viable than others as far as ingredients. But what about the price? Are they capable rivals to the other options available on the market?

As you can probably already guess, they are not all priced the same. The basic Youtheory Turmeric typically costs $29.99, the Extra Strength is $39.99 whereas the Powder option comes typically for $22.39. To do the math, that’s $0.75, $1.33, and $0.75 per serving, respectively.

So, how does that compare, really?

If we compare it to one of my favorites the Nutrigold Turmeric Curcumin Gold (review), it isn’t actually looking too good. I mean, terrible would be one way to put it. I mean, the Nutrigold typically costs $18.38 for a container of 60 servings. That’s 30.6 cents for every 500 milligrams of 95% Curcuminoids and 61.3 cents for every 1000 milligrams.

As Far As Math This Brand Is Not That GreatAnd not only that. The Nutrigold not only offers a plethora of third-party certifications like Non-GMO by Non-GMO Project Verified or Vegan-certified by Vegan Action, but also it’s properly third-party tested.

So, it’s all of that and essentially half the price that Youtheory Turmeric Extra Strength costs. And the flagship product isn’t comparing well either versus NutriGold.

And then, Youtheory Turmeric Powder isn’t a dream also. I mean, put that against something like the Nutricology CurcuWIN (review).

So, the Youtheory Powder offers a 24-fold improvement over standard 95% Curcuminoids. But there’s like only 300 milligrams of that (per serving). With Nutricology, we have 500 milligrams of a formulation known as CurcuWIN which is 136-fold more efficient than 95% Curcuminoids.

The former costs 74.6 cents whereas the latter is 66.5 cents per serving.

Now, if we do some fancy math, the NutriCology is about 5.7 times more effective if there’s the same amount of Youtheory Powder. Or it’s 9.4 times more effective if we compare the serving sizes (the Powder is 300 milligrams). Yet still, it costs more.

I think that given this context, the supplements of this review don’t seem like a bargain at all. Would you agree?

Pros & Cons | They Feel Way More Average Than They Used To

Pros Cons
They are Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Soy-Free. The Turmeric of Youtheory supplements cost way more than they should.
They have good success rates. Most of them don’t get third-party testing.
Only the Extra Strength version is third-party tested. For most, the amounts per serving are not ideal to get the full range of benefits.
They are not Non-GMO. Thus, for additives, there are some potentially problematic aspects.

Overall | I Would No More Than Just Consider These Golden Herb Ones

While I have been guilty of praising the Youtheory Turmeric supplements in the past, I don’t feel like making that same mistake this time. I mean, sure. It’s not like these are bad supplements. They’re very capable.

I mean, I like that the flagship Youtheory Turmeric takes kind of an unconventional route with that addition of Olive leaf extract. I like that the Extra Strength version is really mindful about its additives while also being third-party tested and bringing truly viable amounts of 95% Curcuminoids to the table. I like that they try their shot at doing a patented Curcumin formulation with the Turmeric Powder option.

I Think Overall These Supplements Are Fine To ConsiderStill, to me, the whole brand does to an extent feel like a medium-rare chicken. I mean, one would be fine with a medium-rare steak but having a chicken cooked that way doesn’t really work.

I mean, this whole notion of not having a Non-GMO claim just doesn’t sit well with me. And then, why is the Youtheory Turmeric Extra Strength the only option that gets third-party tested? And why would we need those, to an extent, sugar-focused additives with the Turmeric Powder? Isn’t Xylitol enough? And then, just in general, what’s up with the price?

Hence, I think that (out of avoid it, consider it, shortlist it, buy it) I would reckon we could categorize the entire brand as one to consider. Whereas when it comes to individual ratings, I think it should be avoid borderline consider for the flagship, shortlist for the Youtheory Turmeric Extra Strength, and avoid borderline consider for the Turmeric Powder.

So, definitely not the greatest options out there. But if you are interested in something capable and well worth the money, I would pick one of the following. I mean, personally, I would prefer the Nutricology CurcuWIN (review) every time. But the Nutrigold Turmeric Curcumin Gold (review) is definitely a very capable one as well.

Other than that, I hope this Youtheory Turmeric 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.

  1. 😇 Hello Matiss,


    I prefer Nutrigold Turmeric Curcumin Gold. It stands to reason that there is Not Enough of the “good thing”, (Longvida & CurCuWin formulations), in cost per serving, compared to the amount of standardized to 95% Curcuminoids formulation of Nutrigold Turmeric Curcumin Gold. Besides, the CurCuWin triggers my cluster headaches.

    Tried the other formulations, but I still prefer the standardized 95% Curcuminoids formulation with Black Pepper or Piperine. “Piperine has the capacity of improving the absorption of Curcuminoids (the active beneficial ingredients in Turmeric) by up to 2000%.” I got that quote from you Matiss. 😁

    I really love the comparison nature of your reviews. There is Nothing like it out there. Fantastic review as always.

    • Hey, Joe!

      I appreciate the kind words, my man! And I hope you’re doing really great.

      And, yeah, I absolutely feel you. And, for sure, stick with what works for you. It doesn’t have to be CurcuWIN or Longvida. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy. Because 95% Curcuminoids plus Piperine gets the job done. Moreover, it does feel to be a bit more cost-efficient than the fancy stuff.

      We’ll do my best to keep it up, Joe!

  2. About health? This is always a valuable topic.You worked hard, you gathered information that you provide to those interested.There are many pages to read, but the site is great.I haven’t heard much about additives before, for example. I’m much more informed now.

    I notice that you are not trying to sell products. I thought “what if I bought a jar of Turmenic too?” . I didn’t find any “Buy now” or “if you’re interested go to …” .(or did I miss this?).  Information is also valuable in its own way.

    You put a bunch of [R, R, R, R, R, R, R]. I found out later what these are, each R is a link to another site, blog, with even more information about that product. I think it was good (I say this in many comments) for each R to open the page in another window. It’s a bit confusing to keep shooting the arrow back, you don’t know where you left off with reading when you return to the page you were on, and people won’t click R anymore, and that keeps your work from being seen.

    I really appreciate your effort to gather this information and to build the site.The pages are tidy, you can easily navigate from one topic to another, and from one product to another.

    Many accomplishments and maximum health.

  3. I have read in Good Health magazine that Curcumin supplements should contain turmeric essential oil; referred to as BCM-95 or Curcugreen. in order to get full benefit from them. It is not clear to me from the label on Youtheory extra strength that it contains the essential oil. Does anyone know if it does or how to verify that it does contain the oil?

    • Hey, Larry!

      I’m sorry this has taken so long for me to respond. I hope you’re doing well.

      I actually have an article about that. It’s called the BCM-95 Curcumin review.

      The way I see it, that notion of getting the full benefit is kind of deceiving. Because what I feel it implies is that BCM-95 is this absolutely amazing, powerful, best Curcumin formulation there is. But that’s not even remotely true. Stuff like CurcuWin, Longvida, Novasol are far more capable despite this supposed “full benefit” that somewhat commonly gets attributed to BCM-95.

      The truth of the matter is that BCM-95 and C3 Complex + BioPerine are in somewhat the same weight category if that makes sense. For these, it kind of more comes down to which one comes in higher amounts. But C3 Complex doesn’t use the essential oil.

      By the way, I do have also reviews on supplements that use BCM-95. If you’re still more interested in that, then you’re very welcome to look into those. Try searching BCM-95 in the site’s search bar.

      Cheers, and have a Great One!

  4. Hello,
    I recently purchased your extra strength formula – someone informed me that it is not safe if you are on high blood pressure meds. I have been taking Nu Therapy Turmeric advanced formula and will start taking Youtheory.
    I truly appreciate all the info you give. Thank you – please advise me.
    Mama Mia

    • Hey, Nina!

      It’s not exactly my extra-strength formula. If I had the opportunity to do a Turmeric Curcumin for a brand, I would do it differently. However, it doesn’t change the fact that overall, it’s a great supplement.

      From what I can tell, you’ve been doing Turmeric for a while before planning to change to Youtheory. Did that work well with the high-blood-pressure meds? If it did, then there’s a very slim chance that you need to worry.

      But, generally speaking, I haven’t heard that one. I’ve heard and read that people shouldn’t do blood-thinners while embracing Turmeric. But that’s about the only limitation there is. Also, I feel that one’s kind of bendable. Obviously, I might be wrong here, I might not be aware of something, and your specific case may differ, as well as it may vary depending on the particular med. But that’s what I’m getting at. Either way, I think don’t hesitate to ask your physician just to make sure.

      Cheers, and have a Great One, Nina!

  5. I have heard that many Turmeric products are contaminated with heavy metals, especially lead from sources in Asia sold in the US. Is their any data that shows the safety of the Turmeric from Youtheory? Thanks.

    • Hey, Dan!

      Yeah, I’m well aware of that, too.

      As far as I know, Youtheory Turmeric Extra Strength has been approved by USP which basically means that it has been tested for safety, purity, and potency [R, R, R].

      So, as I see it, it’s a perfectly safe one and no need for worries regarding possible contamination.

      Cheers, and have a Great One!

  6. Does the Youtheory Advanced turmeric product recommended serving actually have 950mg of 95% standardized curcumin extract? Or, is part of the 950mg just root powder as part of the “C3 Complex”.
    So many of the turmeric supplements do not make it clear what the actual amount (milligrams) of the 95% standardized curcumin extract is in each recommended serving. Especially those that have a a blend of ingredients, e.g., C3 Complex.

    • Hey, Bill!

      I feel you.

      Based on what the label persists on, it’s 1000 mg of root powder standardized to 95% Curcuminoids which leaves us at 950 mg of Curcuminoids.

      I think the main reason that they don’t, generally speaking, make it entirely clear is because they assume we all know. Meaning, that C3 Complex is a Curcumin Complex made out of three arguably most potent Curcuminoids – Curcumin, Demethoxycurcumin, Bisdemethoxycurcumin – in which Curcuminoids are standardized to 95% (they’re 95% of the whole mass).

      Cheers, and have a Great One!
      Carpe minutam/Seize the moment,

      • First off, I appreciate all the information you provide! My question is should I(we) be concerned about the vegetable magnesium stearate as an ingredient? As far as being toxic, I thought I might have read that somewhere. Thank you in advance.

        • Hey, Chad!

          Yes, I agree, such a great and tricky question. Many, in fact, are saying that it’s a hazard, that we should never use it. But none of that is actually true. Having spent 10+ hours on researching this specific ingredient, I feel I can say with utmost confidence, it’s not actually harmful; it’s just a huge misinterpretation of the available research.

          My NeoCell Marine Collagen Review has a great, elaborate summary of the ingredient with references and everything. It should give you 1000% confidence that it’s actually a harmless ingredient.

          Cheers, I’m sorry I didn’t manage to get back to you sooner, and have a Great One!

  7. Read your article on Research Verified, have been taking it for about 3 months, before that was taking CUR-Q-10 ULTRA From Stop Aging Now, the one from Stop Aging Now stopped more of my pain, but I ended up with a stomach ulcer, so stopped taking that one and started the one from Research Verified, which does not upset my stomach, but doesn’t stop as much pain, so do you think the Extra Strength Youtheory Turmeric would be a good choice? Thank you so much for all the information you are putting out, it’s very helpful. God Bless you for doing this.

    • Hey, Joyce!

      As I had written out a detailed answer for you, I accidentally lost it. So, here’s me trying to recreate it. Hope it will make for an even better one.

      As far as I can tell, while the Youtheory Extra Strength Turmeric may or may not be a good enough choice for you, there is one other that will definitely be a considerably better one.

      Here’s my thinking.

      So, as far as I can tell, the stomach ulcer/upset stomach thing is not from Turmeric Curcumin supplementation (or the added Piperine/Black Pepper) as of itself (because if it would be the case the Research Verified Turmeric Curcumin should also cause the exact same thing as the Stop Aging Now CUR-Q-10 ULTRA did).

      Hence, I do believe it’s rather the story of additives that get added to either of the supplements (all other things being equal).

      In this regard, the additives that the Research Verified uses should be completely fine with you. Or in other words, Vegetable Cellulose, Rice Flour, Ascorbyl Palmitate, and Silica, should be more than okay with you.

      As for the Stop Aging Now CUR-Q-10 ULTRA, it has two different sets of additives based on whether you choose either the capsule or softgel version (by the way I would love to know which version exactly you used).

      The capsule version uses Vegetable Cellulose (capsule shell), Microcrystalline Cellulose, Vegetable Magnesium Stearate, and Silica (all generally very safe ingredients). Whereas the softgel version goes with Rice Bran Oil, Bovine Gelatin, Glycerin, Caramel Color, Soy (non-GMO), Lecithin, Beeswax, and Water (in truth, not that great of ingredients).

      Don’t quote me on this but if I remember correctly there was a study not too long ago showing a connection between Caramel Color and cancer. Whereas as far as soy goes, despite the fact that it’s Non-GMO it can still account for a number of potentially unpleasant side-effects.

      So, if it was the softgel version that you were using, going with Youtheory Extra Strength Turmeric could work for you fine. However, if it was the capsule version it’s likely not to be the case.

      This is because this particular supplement uses these four additives: Vegetable Cellulose, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Vegetable Magnesium Stearate, and Silicon Dioxide (also known as Silica). Thus, essentially it’s about the same exact four additives that the capsule version of Stop Aging Now CUR-Q-10 ULTRA is about.

      Hence, going with Youtheory Extra Strength Turmeric might bring about the very same thing.

      On that note, given that we know Vegetable Cellulose and Silica being all good for you (cause Research Verified Turmeric has these two and they were without a problem), it leaves us to the either of the rest two ingredients.

      Hence, the very culprit of the stomach ulcer/upset stomach you experienced in the past may be due to either Vegetable Magnesium Stearate or Microcrystalline Celloluse (both generally very safe but stuff like that can happen to select few).

      So, preferably those should be avoided in any future supplement you embark on (that is, of course, only the case if it was the capsule version that caused the side-effects).

      But be that as it may and irrespective of whether or not you went with capsule or softgel version, I do believe there is a better alternative you could try.

      It’s called NatureWise Curcumin. It’s a Turmeric Curcumin supplement that I have come across very recently and it’s essentially stupid (in a good way). It’s something that I will be consistently recommending for Turmeric supplementation from now on.

      So, what makes it so great?

      The biggest thing about it is that it enjoys a global success rate of above 97%. Which not only proves it to be remarkably beneficial but is also the highest success rate I’ve seen when it comes to any Turmeric Curcumin supplement out there. Plus, just everything from the active ingredients to the additives is absolutely marvelous.

      But as regards to your case specifically, it uses none of the potentially problematic ingredients. For additives, it uses Vegetable Cellulose, Rice Flour, and Organic Rice Bran Extract. So, no Microcrystalline Cellulose or Vegetable Magnesium Stearate, or even any of the ingredients found in Stop Aging Now CUR-Q-10 ULTRA softgel version (Organic Rice Bran extract is very different from Rice Bran Oil).

      Plus, it adds Ginger extract that can help with digestive health and other stuff as well.

  8. This was a remarkably insightful article. Love the powerful antioxidant properties, as well the support for healthy inflammation response. I truly learned a lot. What’s more, totally by accident I found an amazing Turmeric supplement that I will for sure try out and see how it fits me. I’ll let you know how it goes, and my most hearty thank you for this post.

    • Hey, Jannatul!

  9. Profound research about Turmeric and its benefits!

    I am very impressed with the information you are providing. I know turmeric powder mainly from the Indian kitchen, and I think it’s one of the ingredients that should not be missing at our homes :).

    I’ve never known that turmeric has so many benefits for our health. I’ve heard about detoxication and anti-inflammation effects. But after reading your post, I feel that Turmeric is something I must include in my daily diet.  Youtheory Turmeric supplement seems to be the best solution on how to use turmeric daily. I will try it out!

    Thank you for your in-depth research.

    • Hey, Snap!

      I’m beyond happy knowing you enjoyed the review. And that it was helpful and insightful. :)
      And thank you for the kind words.

      Cheers, and have a Great One!

  10. I was quite surprised when I got to the ‘Additives’ section of your article, as I have been taking supplements for a number of years now, and I never really thought of, or paid that much attention to the additives used within them.

    Do all supplements use additives, and if so – what are they used for?

    Are they primarily there to aid the delivery system of the supplement or are they there for another reason?

    • Hey, Chris!

      About 99% of all supplements use additives. Mainly for the formation of pills, tablets, softgels, etc. However, they can be used for a number of other reasons as well, such as improving absorption, color, taste and on and on and on.

      Cheers, and have a Great One!

  11. Hi

    I am a great believer in using alternative medicine for those suffering from diagnosed medical conditions. In that regard, I believe Turmeric is absolutely crazy good for battling Arthritis. I know a number of people who have benefited greatly.

    Thank you for sharing what seems to be an amazing Turmeric supplement. I will pass on this to my mates as well. Thank you.

  13. I feel both versions of Youtheory Turmeric are good for health especially for people suffering from osteoarthritis inflammation. What I like best is the fact that Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory. 

    I have used the simple version and have been surprised at how well it relieves aches and pains! Does it also work in migraine pain? If so, please let me know.

    • Hey, thank you for sharing your view on this, as well as your experiences.
      I sincerely appreciate it.

      As for the migraine, I might be wrong but as far as I know, it will.

      Cheers, and have a Great One!

  14. I have been hearing a lot lately about the benefits of Turmeric and its healing properties on overall health and total well-being. I usually mix a small spoon of the powder with yogurt! But now I’m not sure if it works to be consumed that way. Is it better to just get a proper supplement like this one?

    • Hey, Jeedajoy!

      Thank you for sharing that.
      It’s definitely not a bad way of consuming it. However, yes. A proper supplement will without a doubt be a more solid approach.

      Cheers, and have a Great One!
